Oh gosh, one of the bad experiences I ever had in a gay sauna. Sooo awful, never again!!! Once inside the changing area, you will find yourself in a too little cabine which is dirty, scruffy and needs a deep clean and refurb. After entering...More

Guys are cute but they are all 'massage therapists'. Not many 'clients' when we went and the place had a nice sauna but the cabins are a bit shabby. Didn't get in the 'spa' :)

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
