A nice treat but a bit conflicted...

I have been to this "hammam" twice. Generally I loved the atmosphere and all the hot water and steaming. The scrub - though extremely brief - is also nice...As others have... read more

Upon entering into the Acqua Madre Hammam the relaxation began. The calming music and beautiful aromas invited in. We signed up for the basic Hammam treatment for 50 euro plus 10 euro for footwear and scrub mitt. My husband and I went on a day that included both men and women, everyone in swimsuits. We had attendants who spoke enough... More

The scrub - though extremely brief - is also nice...As others have mentioned the scrub area is extremely public, so the second time I did bring bikini bottoms for this part - I just felt more comfortable this way.

Surprised to see that the only two other English reviews on here are not very flattering. Hadn't checked out tripadvisor beforehand but had just found acqua made on Google. Spent a drizzly Sunday here with girl friends on a weekend in Rome, the staff were friendly and welcoming. They coped with our limited Italian and made our time there relaxing... More

I love a good spa day, so have made it a point to go to a spa in every town we travel to. So, I chose Acquamadre when we went to Rome. Now, I'm not a slender girl, I mean, Jerry Springer isn't coming to take the side off the house so I can go to work, but I'm a... More

Not very kind staff (besides the person in the lobby who is really nice). They keep you waiting with no major explanation about what time to be treated. They absolutely ignored we went together and expected to receive treatment at the same time (it was pointed out when making the appointment). The treatment area is public and open. No logical...

Tucked away in a small side street in the Roman Ghetto, just behind the lovely fountain with turtles on piazza Mattei, this is a great place to treat your sightseeing-wearied body to if it's complaining: you'll be walking on air when you come out. It's a "real" hammam in that they use black soap and different temperature rooms and scrub... More

Staying in Ghetto

Neighbourhood Profile
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
