Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam, Istanbul

4.6
#1 of 232 in Spas in Turkey
Indulge in a deluxe traditional bathing experience at Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam, which was built for the wife of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent. The chief Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan designed the building in the mid-16th century in place of the ancient public baths of Zeuxippus, just across from Hagia Sophia. The hammam offers basic and upscale bath services including a scrub and soap massage, aromatherapy massages, mud masks, and a bubble wash, all in meditative surroundings. The entrance vestibules surrounded by wooden cubicles lead into separate baths for women and men. Taste some of the Turkish cuisine at a restaurant on the outdoor terrace. Come prepared with a change of clothes. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Istanbul trip simple and quick.

  • A great experience! A must when you are in Istanbul. When you come in, you are surrounded by an exquisite marble building with beautiful little details. It is a quiet warm environment with a professional, service conscious and welcoming staff. The breakfast was very good. The pleasant feeling remains long in the body. The staff feels as if they are genuine and cares about what is good for one. A warning is that you can not visit the bathhouse if you have menstruation.

  • Staff were polite and friendly and explained everything. The deep tissue massage was fantastic.The bath itself was a fun and interesting experience. The staff are very professional. The grounds are very clean and the washing areas are disinfected after each client. We had such a good experience!
  • Located right in the heart of Istanbul and between Hagia Sophia Museum and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. The historical context and surroundings adds an unique touch to the experience. Aside from that, the Hamam experience itself is a must have in Istanbul in my opinion. Relaxing soothing. The energy is boosted after bath and massage. Service is excellent. Professional staff and masseur.
