Suleymaniye was a very clean bath house with a scrub and massage included in the price. It is co-ed which was a little weird but worked out well as my husband, two teens and I could all experience it together. I was hesitant to do...More

Stressfree hamam experience. In contrast to much that you read about other hamams, highly upfront, transparent pricing (75 lira including steam/scrub/shampoo if you want it and soap/towels & massage) – especially appreciated free transfers to/from hotel. You enter via an attractive reception with wooden cabins...More
