Historic building, following the footsteps of Suleiman the Magnificent himself. The treatment was only just over the hour but we stayed on after and enjoyed the apple tea. Felt it was an authentic experience compared to others on offer.

Great family activity set in historic building. The marble baths are beautiful and worth seeing as a historical/cultural landmark. Agree with other reviews that the scrubbing down/massage is a little short changed (15 min), but still a fun and relaxing experience at a much better...More
