Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamam; The elegant authentic surroundings of this Turkish bath, magnificent creation of Mimar Sinan, transcends the timeless barriers between old and new… Giving you an escape from the hustle and bustle of beautiful Istanbul City.Mimar Sinan the legendary Architect of that period was commissioned by “Kilic Ali Pasa” to build the Hamam to withstand the ravages of the sea and time. The large light, Magnificent Dome above the Camegah (relaxation area) is 14 meters across and 17 meters high one of the largest single domes built by Sinan. The features of the Kulhan Chimney/exhaust, the leaded domes and the glass elephant eyes along with brick by brick reappointing, original Kurnas and some carved stone and marble slabs found during excavation have been retained and used within the premises adding to its extreme historical beauty and interest.The Hamam Ritual is an ancient one, the materials used have not significantly changed and used to restore energy and vitality to the body by reducing the toxins, and allowing the skin to breathe again

Beautiful building, brilliant customer service and a really relaxing hammam. For those who expect an experience similar to hammams in Syria or North Africa the Turkish hammam is a little softer, but the attention to detail (including glasses of iced water in the hammam) is...More

This place is just stunning and I recommend it for all Istanbul visitors who want to truly have the ultimate Turkish bath experience. Amazing in all aspects, excellent service and very reasonable prices (compared to similar class hamams in Istanbul).

the perfectly restored 16th century bath house offers the traditional hammam and massages. It is an incredible experience like stepping back in time while service and treatments are 21st century. Not inexpensive but worth it.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
