“I like the Turkish Hammam”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

You can get a good scrub and soak and lay on the delightful marble slab for $22. To me it's a great deal but I like the concept of the hammam. Bring a bathing suit botton to wear and you can save money if you bring your own soap.

“Historical, original Turkish bath”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

Its Turkish bath, 500 years old, restored, with seperate Men and Women sections. Process maybe a bit different for first timers, so i will explain. Once you enter the place you pay for hamam, you need soap inside so either take w you or buy it before entering. They give you a key for the room where you can change and leave your staff. You will use thin colored towel in the room to cover your body in hamam, where it will get wet. Slippers provided but better to take yours w you, you may not enjoy their look. Then you will move into hamam, they will guide you in. There is a small warm room (like sauna) which you can spend 10-15 minutes before you move to main hall. In the main hall, you will lie on the warm middle stone and a guy will make you 10 mins massage, he will scrub you and then wash you (these are extra but very reasonable fee).
One you are done, you go out to rest hall whenever you wish; they will dry you and give dry towels at exit. At rest hall, enjoy your tea, "Ayran" or soda-lemon-salt mixture.
You may park your car free to the car wash stations, next door.
After or before this attraction, also visit the historical streets of Hamamonu, just opposite the street.
