“June 2013: Closure of the Great Hammam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

We've just returned from a wonderful week's visit to Rodos, Greece. The great disappointment was to find the Great Hammam in Arionos Square evidently permanently closed. The manager of the near-by restaurant in the Square said it had been closed for some 18 months. He had no idea when or if it might reopen. There was no notice on the locked front doors. Alas! This is a beautifully designed building, and it was always a pleasure to visit the hammam and enjoy its setting. June 2013. Respectfully submitted, Ben Barr. Jerusalem.

It is really a shame that this great heritage is closed. Ok here is the sea and hotel swimming pools and the weather is so nice and warm but there are people who would enjoy the greatness of hamam. No sign no further notice just closed....real pity.

“Great restoration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

first visited here when the building was almost a ruin. the restoration work over many years has ben well worth the effort. opening times are a bit sporadic and information is a bit sparse but you can go in for a look around or enjoy the facilities, although not sure how many do this in the summer sun. lots of small cafes and bars nearby

Arrived here mid-afternoon to find the building closed and no information about opening hours or prices. Very disappointing.
