I was very surprised by the one review that characterised this hamam as a kind of brothel and wonder if (s)he visited a different establishment (such as the Korkut Hamami?)? This is a place of historical interest (a 16th-century hammam) supported with funds from the...More

Visitors from outside the local area should be aware that this is not the typical Turkish bath experience. This hamam offers erotic massages, which is not made clear from the options presented at the reception. Despite speaking Turkish and having visited hamams across Turkey, it...More

Only a shower in a nice place with nice music. You pay massage apart. And the service was very bad, not recommended.

Loved the authentic atmosphere of the place. We had a good massage, the bath area was pleasant and we came out of it feeling invigorated and VERY clean. The website is worse than useless so it is a bit hit and miss as to whether...More

I have always wanted to visit the Great Hammam, so this is some sort of ticking a box in a bucket list. The hammam was very clean, we went there with my husband and it was mixed day; so there were other couples around. This...More

Fortunately we discovered the mixed period and dutifully went along to experience a bit of a novelty. Of course we didn't really know the protocols and it's a bit of an adventure working things out, but I don't think we embarrassed ourselves or shocked anyone....More
