Excellent value. Seemed authentic. I was the only client. Their pace was nicely relaxed. This is my first visit to a Hamam. I'm unable to rate it relative to others.

This hamam is located very near the Blue Mosque. After a day of touring, I can think of no better way of capping off the day than with a bath and massage at this relaxed, friendly, and very professional establishment. I've been here twice over...More
