Clear and safe traditional hamami. A funny experience, good price, worth a try. Nothing like any spa in thailand, very traditional.

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.

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
