Can highly recommend local hamam nearby 4 seasons hotel . Wonderful full body pampering by local masseuses . Well worth 115 euro. Very traditional & a lovely treat.
I paid 30 euro for the Turkish Haman which includes bath and 15 minutes bubble soap applied to my body by the turkish masseur at the round marble at the main room where every ladies have the scrub there ..she gives me a little massage and scrub .. I can see the dead skin come out when she use a... More
I have had a haman in Morroco this was much better . After a busy day sight seeing this is just the job . Whole body is scrubbed and washed then relaxing massage . You can take time after to lie in the heat . The one i visited is just behind the tram stop for Sultanahmet . They had... More
These are beautiful baths and worth spending time enjoying the historic splendour. It's easy to imagine yourself as a ottoman prince. Just need a hooks pipe to finish off the scene. This baths is over priced though and the guy that give you the massage spends too much time talking about his tip so you can never really truly relax.... More
I went with my husband on 01/01/13 and in the resting area we exchanged experiences and his was definitely the better! I did enjoy the experience but for 60TL I was expecting more & the price was expensive for what was really a soapy wash! I was hoping for a good massage and maybe if I had paid for the... More
A haman is a great way to relax, especially if combined with a massage. We used the one in the ambassador hotel as it was recommended, and it didn't disappoint. Keep in mind when having a turkish bath and crub, that there is nothing left to the imagination, as everything comes off. But at the end of a tiring day... More
You cannot come to Turkey without visiting a hamam. Take care though, some of them are way overpriced for what they offer. Take a massage as well, but beware masseurs are quite strong. 40 TL for entrance + massage should be the maximum that you would pay.
You must visit a hammam if you come to Turkey. But the experience can be very variable. At its' best it is a wonderful. relaxing journey which an expert takes you on. You are soaped, scrubbed, left to soak and sweat, and manipulated to suit. At worst you have someone who has done a quick 'How to Hammam a Tourist'... More
A visit to Gedikpasa Hamani, a historical Turkish bath since 1475 is a wonderful way to spend some relaxing time in Istanbul. Rain and cold weather made outdoor sightseeing a challenge, so I booked into the haman, and was not disappointed. I had transportation to and from my hotel provided in the price. The services were very professional and the... More
This Haman is in the basement of the Sultanhan hotel. It is run by a Mustafa & Fatma (husband & wife). My wife & I had our time together. You go into a sauna for 10 minutes & then the steam room. Mustafa comes in & scrubs you w/ a rough cloth. My wife was at first taken aback but... More
