The Historical and Luxurious Art of BathingHistorical and Architectural Features“I hope that until the end of days, good hearted friends who take a look at what I have made, when they will perceive the seriousness and the spirit of my effort, can have a fair view and can invoke my name to pray for me.” Mimar Sinan, ArchitectThe Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam in Istanbul was designed and built by Mimar Sinan, the chief Ottoman architect. It was built at the request of Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana), the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the 16th century. It was built where the ancient public baths of Zeuxippus used to stand, between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The area is also particularly significant as the site where the Temple of Zeus once stood.

If you like spas and interesting cultural experiences, this is not to be missed. I have never felt so relaxed in my life, and the massage at the end was the real deal.

I wasn't sure how this hammam would be since it is in a major tourist area- Sultanahmet park between Aya Sofya and Sultanahmet mosque. I booked an appointment for the Ab-I-Hayat bath package which includes an effective, but not harsh, body scrubbing in the Sultan'...More

It's going back into history books. Feels like being from the ottoman dynasty, pampered like a member of a royal family. Last time had been to wrong place, this time Thanx to TripAdvisor for recommending.

Ayasofya Hammam was one of the highlights of my trip to Istanbul. Right near the Blue Mosque, this was built in the 1500's. It is spotlessly clean, with attention to each client and to the details. The building is historical, so you feel immersed in...More

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

The haman website has all this info. In Euros, Liras, Dollars. It is quite affordable compared to luxury day spas in the US. And in my opinion the quality and service is way beyond any Spa I've been to in the US
