  • Yes it's nice and expensive, even very expensive, but I don't see the difference with the same products with the same origin sold in other shops around, such as Pasha across the street, at much better...  more »
  • We went to look for Jennifer's Haman as we had read positive reviews on a guide to Istanbul and I must say that we were impressed with the selection of styles, colors and sizes of towels. There are so many that it was a difficult task to choose which model to buy. Council ... found a little time to go snooping.

  • My wife did some research ahead of our trip to Istanbul and came upon some recommendations for Jennifer's Hamam, so it was on our list of things to do. We found the shop in the Arasta Bazaar and it was great, but they quickly realized we needed to see more products and we were taken around the corner and down the block to their warehouse that was close by. Here is where the fun really began..... Jennifer came out and greeted us and explained the business a bit and made sure we understood how special the hand made products were. Her staff took over and explained everything and spent hours with us to make sure we understood all the materials and manufacturing that goes into each and every one of their products. This was such a great experience to shop here, and the care and kindness shown by Jennifer and her staff made this a really special experience, and we loaded up on lots of products such as towel sets, a new bathrobe, blankets and pechemels. The real treat though, was when we arrived home and opened our package of all these lush and wonderful products. I have never felt a towel so luxurious and decadent before, and I realize that the other reviewers are right, that I will never be able to go back to regular towels when I have had the pleasure of these fantastic hand made Turkish towels. And the other treasures like our new blanket and bath robes, we are also enjoying daily. Thanks Jennifer for your great products and making purchasing them such a wonderful and friendly experience!
  • My wife and I just passed though Istanbul for a night on our way home from Barcelona. Jennifer's Hamam was awesome, the quality and uniqueness of her products are truly second to none. We loaded up on towels and blankets and couldn't be happier. I've purchased Turkish towels, or what were represented as Turkish towels, from other stores in Istanbul, they don't come close to the quality found at Jennifer's. If you appreciate the highest quality hand made goods this is the place for you.
  • I recently bought beautiful towels from Jennifer's Hamam, and received them within days. Jennifer was very good at communicating with me, and answered all my questions in a timely fashion. She has TWO shops in the Arasta Bazaar in Istanbul now (PLUS a new showroom) and people should look for the Cnd. flag in the window. All the textiles are Turkish workmanship, Turkish materials and they are made on old-style shuttled looms, with silk, linen and GOTS certified organic cotton; these are the main points that make this company completely unique in Turkey. It is important to mention that she has fixed prices. I am very pleased with my towels, the colors are fantastic
  • As a disclaimer, I do receive any kind of kick back or compensation for this review. This is my go to towel place. As a foreigner its always nice to have your "go to's." A spice guy, a towel guy, a rug guy. I can happily say, and hopefully my guests and family and friends can say the same, that I have all three. Luckily again for me, they are my spice lady, my rug lady, and now my towel lady. Where to start with Jennifer's hamam. I have been here by myself and with guests about a dozen times now. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. Jennifer herself never seems to leave the store and is proud and friendly. It is always a good sign when the owner of the store is by your side to help guide you through the buying process. Jennifer's can get packed, so be sure to ask where there showroom is, located 3 blocks away, and they will walk you there. The English level by most employees is high here, so that is a comfort as well. Now to the good stuff. The towels, blankets and scarves. My aunt, who is a impulsive shopper, came to visit a couple of months ago. She insisted that she has enough towels, but like family, I insisted we go anyway so she could have the "experience." I put this in quotes because a day of shopping at Jennifer's is like going through a textile tour of Turkey, in one sitting., Needless to say my aunt went crazy, buying full sets of towels to immediately replace the ones she has. From an array of different designs, thickness and prices, Jennifer's offers fully organic hand woven products. Their linen is to die for (look for their towels, robes, and blankets on the third floor!) Having a tailor on site, makes it easy to offer custom made robes, at a decent price! Did I mention that they ship worldwide? They ship worldwide. To be frank, I adore this place. The people, the product, everything about it. I can't say enough about the quality of their product, and I continue to bring or tell anyone I know to go and to experience it for themselves! if there was a 6 star option, I would click it. Help me out here Google!
  • Amazing customer service, traditional cotton weaving, vibrant colours... After a year of continuous use, my towels are softer than ever and look better than ever! Fantastic experience, a must when in Istanbul, and you can get custom orders by simply sending them an email! Bravo!!

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
