Great staff that have great knowledge of their products. No hard sell but then also no discounts! Nazreen was lovely and took us to the showroom and spent time to show all the products. Will have to visit again as no online shopping to the UK.!

We came across Jennifer's Hamam while visiting Istanbul five years ago. It was a special birthday, and I had money to spend. Impressed with both Jennifer's story and her products, I ended up buying two beautiful large bath towels. I've pretty much used them every day ever since (my old towels seem so naff by comparison) and they are still... More

I had heard of Jennifer's Hamam from several sources and knew that a visit was on my Must Do list during a fall trip to Istanbul. In fact, I went three times. And I would go again now if I could. I replaced decades-old frayed towels with exquisitely hand-loomed, thick and fluffy looped towels that are a joy to use... More

Jennifer's Hamam offers the best towels and soaps you can find in Istanbul. Products are of highest quality organic cotton. We always stop here when we visit Istanbul.

Getting a summer bath robe with the right fit, style and length had proved too much for all the shops I had dropped into over the years, and it was finally left to Jennifer's Hammam to absolutely nail it. In their shop in Arasta Bazaar I saw splendid styles in - joy oh joy - lovely organic cloth, but the... More

In June, I visited Jennifer's Hamam in the Arasta Bazaar and fell in love with towels (cotton and linen), throws, silk scarves, and staff. After spending time in the Grand Bazaar and other shops in Istanbul, walking into her shop was a breath of fresh air. The staff were kind, welcoming, and knowledgable about every product. I am not a... More

I was so excited to find this shop in Istanbul! It was recommended by a friend. Not only do they have fabulous organic cotton towels and other cotton products but the owner is Canadian! I purchased two large bath towels, two hand towels and a beautiful scarf. There is a certain process you have to follow in order to use... More

We love the towels we purchased three months ago from Turkey. I didn't do a big review then because we had only just purchased. After following the instructions given we are pleased to say that they not only dry really fast, even in the tropics, but they stay just like new. Really good quality and would really recommend three beautiful... More

My daughter and I visited this shop in the Arasta Bazaar about 6 years ago and fell in love with the towels. We bought so many that we had to purchase another suitcase!

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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 prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
