  • Inexpensive local hammam. The experience would have been amazing if the men didn’t take us out after 20minutes to perform a quick and very rough scrub / massage before rushing us out. As my friend and I were drying our hair and getting ready to leave, we found ourselves surrounded by 7 Turkish men staring at us demanding a tip. We hesitated for a while but decided not to give in and left in a hurry. Intimidating experience!
  • Nice hammam. No-one speaks English. You get the impression that tourists have to pay more than locals, while getting worse service. They do help you through it. Embarrassing to have 5 men demanding tips at the exit. I was happy to tip the masseur, but supposedly the guy handing you a towel deserves one as well.
  • Very nice place and perfect massage with feelings of great refreshments especially the man Vilil as I remember his name Beautiful experience .
  • A beautiful experience.. only to be spoilt by the greed of the workers as they gather at the end of the session to request a tip.. they were not satisfied with a 60 Turkish lira tip (full bath & massage cost is 75 Turkish lira)
  • Super friendly staff, they dont speak english but if you are willing to try your turkish you will have a really nice afternoon.
