Spas & Wellness, Istanbul

2.0
#5 of 46 in Spas in Istanbul
Leave the vibrant streets of the sprawling metropolis behind and experience a centuries-old relaxation technique at one of Istanbul's many hammams. You'll literally feel time slowing down as you enter a classic Turkish bathhouse, where experienced staff awaits to give you an energizing body scrub and a rejuvenating massage. Shorter visits will leave plenty of time to admire the hammam's Ottoman architecture, but you can also choose a longer half-day tour that combines a visit to a Turkish bath with some retail therapy at the famous Grand Bazaar. If you prefer modern spa/wellness centers, you'll find plenty of those in Turkey's top city.

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.
