Look, we were three Americans who were not entirely sure about this whole scrub-down and naked thing but our thirst for adventure overcame our anxiety so we booked the night before on their website. Why in the hell would you go to Istanbul and not...More

This was an amazing experience. The main reason we chose this was so that my boyfriend and I could do the Turkish baths together, however it far exceeded expectations. There was only 1 other couple in the facility at the same time as us, which...More

Compared to another bath i went to in Istanbul, this has to be the poorest version experienced! Our welcome was indifferent & the women very vague about the treatment. Once in the hot room, it felt as though we were in a sardine tin, with...More

In this unisex hamam you can really feel the esence of the pasts centuries. Of course you pay for that but it is a great place to feel and live the history itself. It is a beautiful hamam to enjoy your senses

My (female) partner received a massage including the buttocks, breasts and low on the abdomen, where she had to stop the masseuse. I am male and had no contact between the waist and my mid-thigh. It's diffult to define sexual assault in this setting but...More

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

Yes females can wear Bikinis and males keep a towel around their waist. Although it is men who do the work, there is a professional level that makes the bath appropriate and nice.

Yes make workers do the baths. My wife wore a bikini-type suit and she had a male worker give her a bath. She told me that she never felt uncomfortable and told me that he was a nice man who only washed in the basic places.
