We were recommended this hammam by our hotel concierge as they did couples hammam. Most hammams in Istanbul have set times for men and women. We arrived and were given very clear instructions on how the hammam process worked. A locker is given and you wear the key on your wrist throughout the massage/scrubbing. The room is very hot where you are left to sweat, we had to leave the room a couple of times as it got so hot! The scrubbing/massage part was quite tame to what I've had before, but the male masseuse was very professional. The 'massaging' part was too fast and more of rough rub than anything. You can stay in the hot room after your treatment and then you're taken back to your locker/change room. It was a nice experience and fine for a couple which is what we wanted, but I probably wouldn't recommend or come back to this particular hammam again.
