I believe this is the only hamam in Istanbul that allows for mixed gender. Service was good. They provide everything you need -- towels, top and bottom for women. They only have male workers performing the bath. There is only a full service cleaning option...More

The only hamam in istanbul where you can join the treatments as a couple. The historical building was impressive. We enjoyed the stay but don't expect too much from the massage.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
