  • I have never felt so relaxed, cared for, respected, nourished in my life. It was simply liberating. My therapist was Kadriye and she was so professional and supportive and caring. There's a reason this place has been around for 300+ years. There's a reason why the top celebrities in the world go here. It's completely affordable and you deserve to know what complete serenity feels like. I can't recommend highly enough.
  • This is not an establishment that I would recommend. High pressure tactics to sell you more options. They explain what will be done but in reality it is not. Half of what was explained was given. Many people complain about the time or duration of the actual bath, then at least 20 minutes drinking tea. The cost is not for the average Turkish citizen. They present a great reception with highly trained staff but the service staff providing the service really don't speak English. I believe you can do much better at other places in the area.
