This is not hamam

It has very comfortable location. But inside it's awful. Instead it's hamam with steam sauna only. It's fake!

The place is dirty, the staff are rude and the service compared to the price paid was disappointing. Very disappointed.

Not recommended to shy people :) One hour of sauna, peeling&washing and massage ( 20 minutes each) for 80 Lira/person. Open until midnight. A refreshing experience after a day's walk sightseeing.

This Turkish bath was an enjoyable experience but i have got the feeling that the price was too high.

Inside is not hot enough. Young staff without experience for body scrub and massage. Not recommend for Middle East and Far East citizens to go there, because they have better and cheaper similar places in their countries. May be for American and European for first time can be attractive . Very expensive and not valuable.

I had a pedicure while I waited for my sister and brother in law to have their first Turkish bath. After eating her meal (it was about 4pm), the scruffy woman went off and returned with a fag hanging from her lips and a manky old red bowl. She did a bit of filing on my already short toe nails,...

It was 1 hour for 80 Turkish Lira including body scrup, bubble rubbing and 20 mins massage. Actually, the entrance was really scattered and owners were not friendly at all, as if they just want to take my money ( I shouldn't have changed my mine.) however, I was really curious about Turkish bath and tried.. The entrance of bath... More

The bath and oil massage at the Sultanamet Hamami was the greatest bath / massage experience eve. Begin with sitting on the warm marble by a marble basin with water temperature you control, - I like hot to cold to hot - then the masseuse takes it from there. Having read enough historical novels to feel a sense of the... More

Very expensive Hamam, without any reason to be. They lied about the women and men being segregated - men in every section of what was supposed to be a very private, women only hamam.

Terrible service. Arrived on time but told we were late. Wanted to take a quick photo in the shorts and bikini we were given but told later which I said no to because being a girl and all, you want a photo while your make up is still on..! Would have been much quicker if he just took the photo... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
