This was the second turkish bath (hamam) I visited in Istanbul. I loked it better than the other one (tourist one in Taksim, can't remember the name). This one was bigger and the message was better, longer. This one was full of locals. The staff spoke pretty good english and the prices were posted. This one was not as clean... More

Looked at many different Hamams and chose this one - very friendly ladies, good scrub, good price and we were the only tourists in there. No booking needed, we just turned up. Was 50L for scrub, massage and they gave us a bottle of water after as well. High recommend if you're looking for a proper experience!!

I went with a friend, both foreingers. The only non-Turkish in the hamman. They put on hold the other Turkish guests so we were first on the list for the washing, massage and scrubbing. This was not an act of courtesy but a fast track for the money. During the massage and washing the workers started asking for tips. They... More

Me and my two friends had an authentic and new experience in this old hammam. As we walked in, the shoe man took our shoes and gave us slippers, he then showed us to the changing rooms where you can lock up your belongings (lockers and changing rooms is the same). You dress totally naked or keep on boxers. We... More

After quite a bit of research for a cheaper, non touristy Turkish bath, my boyfriend and I settled on these baths based on the reviews on here. I had been quite apprehensive and wasn't sure what to expect and certainly didn't want to pay over the odds. Buyuk was an excellent choice! We had to walk some distance to get... More

This experience was quite unique for us. We were in Turkish baths before but mostly in the touristic ones. Buyuk feels more original (we were the only tourists in) and is quite cheaper also (50 TL for full package with tips).

This was my first experience in a hammam and it proved to be the most memorable thing I did in 5 full days in Istanbul. We chose this bath, despite it not being the closest, because it was described as being one that locals use, and we wanted to get away from other tourists. There are two entrances on opposite...

It's a typical Turkish place and I was the only European there (met another tourist from the middle east but he spoke Turkish as well). Went there on a Saturday afternoon and within 5 minutes after answering 'massage yes/no' I was from walking from the main entrance into the sauna (to my liking, I don't like to wait or have... More

This is the 1st bad review I've ever written in my life. I had the worst experience ever and I will never recommend this place to any woman. I went on the 2nd of January around 6:15pm.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
