Full description
The hamam is an atmospheric world all its own in the midst of cosmopolitan Istanbul. If you are stressed-out, tired, or just want to visit a place where time seems to have stood still for centuries, step inside for an authentic Turkish bath experience. Immerse yourself in the long-established hamam experience at a luxurious hamam carved out of a cave, granting the best of both worlds: old-world tradition in a modern, luxurious setting. To help you relax after your daily tours of Istanbul, the professional masseurs offer a variety of services in addition to the traditional hamam ritual. After changing, you will be taken to the Hot Room where your muscles will loosen up. You will proceed to the Warm Room of the bath,where the staff (tellak for men and natir for women) will scrub you down using Turkish soap and a special cloth. Once you have finished there, you will be taken to the Cold Room and given towels to wrap yourself in. Here you may choose to enhance your experience with a massage, or simply relax with tea or other drinks. After you get dressed, you will feel your skin renewed from the magic of the Turkish bath.

It was an incredible experience. We were extremly well taken care of.

Everthing was perfectly organised. Picking up and bringing back to the hotel was 100% reliable and very punctual. The Hamam is very clean and all the rooms are very impressiv. Peeling and soaping was great experience and for our taste very authentic. (no Tourist show!!) Very good value for money. Can be recommended to anyy Istanbul-visiter and should make part of the cultural experience.

Turkish bathing experience - always to be recommended

A bathing experience with well-founded instruction. Massage and relaxation experience and that in complete CALM, and that in a booth that never sleeps. Thanks to the team!

This bathing experience is recommended on all levels.

Clean, professional, technically sound. The present masseuse convinced with her medical and general massage knowledge and its application. This bathing experience is recommended on all levels. It would be desirable if, in addition to Turkish, some English and / or French and / or German were spoken. Otherwise perfect.
