“Second class but good value”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is my second experience after Bodrum last year which was first class, this is in Istanbul and as I am here on business not much time and this is close to the hotel apartments where I stay so gave it a chance, you get your cubicle to put ur valuables and cloth and get ur key with you, start with sauna and steam marble room than scrubbing and massage not for too long than shower, end result is good I feel fresh and born again, pay is good only 40 than 10 tips so 50 not bad at all. They open for ladies until 8 pm and male until 23 7 days a week

“An Authentic Experience”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It's not the flashiest of places, but if you are after an authentic hamam experience this is a great place to go. The ladies didn't speak English but they welcome tourists, very reasonable at 40 Lira. It's basic but clean, they provide towels so you don't need to bring anything with you. I would definitely recommend this place.

“Good but not for first timers?”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

This was my first hamam experience in Istanbul (had been to others in regional Turkey) and it was pretty good. I initially found the staff a little aloof but think this was mostly due to language barriers and perhaps them being a little jaded from dealing with unaware tourists? The English language fee list (40tl scrub etc) was provided at entry and agreement to the price was made clear at the onset (creating the impression that there had been problems in the past). That aside, the hamam is wonderfully old world. The small change cubicles are quaint (enclosed with a rest bed, clothes hooks etc) and the hamam itself is very warm/hot. The scrub is thorough-- took off layers of dead skin but it didn't feel harsh. The massage is very short. They will wash your hair (the way your mum did when you were a kid and she'd had enough of you!), then throw water over you from all angles -- which made me feel like I was in a trough... hilarious!. I really quite enjoyed all this. I did not feel rushed to leave or dress, and the treatment left me feeling refreshed. Compared to other hamams reviewed for Istanbul, this seems like standard service and good value. Its close to the buses/ferries (so easy to get to). The hamam has free lockers for your bag and also sells cool drinks. The towels and wrap etc were included in the price. I would recommend this hamam if you want to get the grit and grime of city travelling off without much fuss or too many people about.

“Authentic hamam, medium experience”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

This old hamam lies in the Asian side of Istanbul. The building from outside looks a little terrible. The stuff at the mens part (at least the time i was there) was not speaking English at all , but we manage to communicate with hands and grins. The entrance, which includes the lockers was not so great and the sandals that gives you are plastic and not wooden (takounya), like other baths. Despite that the main bath hall and sauna were very clean and the experience inside very good.
