Limpe profundamente o seu corpo e a sua mente durante uma tradicional experiência de banho turco, com 2 horas de duração, no Cagaloglu Hamami de Istambul, uma deslumbrante cada de banos do século XVIII. Tão autêntica quanto uma experiência cultural pode ser, a experiência de um banho turco continua sendo, ainda hoje, praticamente igual ao que era durante a era otomana. Relaxe sobre uma laje de mármore em uma câmara de banho coberta de vapor, faça uma esfoliação vigorosa para remover as células mortas da pele e relaxe em uma sala mais fresca. O embarque nos hotéis do lado europeu de Istambul também está incluído.
Very frustrating!!! The receptionist who was not very friendly did not know about Viator and did not even recognize the Viator voucher. I had to tell him to look at the reservations in his computer. The description said this was supposed to be a two-hour experience but my experience was just less than one hour. I was made to stay in the steam room for 20 mins. The actual scrub took only 15 mins. Afterwhich, I was asked to dress up. I felt shortchanged. Instead of leaving the Turkish Bath feeling relaxed, I left feeling very stressed out. Do not take this tour!!!
From beginning to end this was a complete disappointment. We were pushed through without welcome or introduction to the experience. We were directed to a changing room to disrobe, and then taken to the bath area where we were left standing naked to figure it out on our own. Once the scrubbers came in, the bath was less than 15 minutes. All in, we were there for less than an hour and left feeling very disappointed. Absolutely skip this one.
I've had a Hammam experience before so my expectations were high. It was a good experience, clean facility, nice to get dropped off but definitely NOT worth the cost. The guy at the desk didn't even know what my voucher included so he gave us middle of the line when I was clearly supposed to get a premium package including massage. I could have booked this myself for 50 Euro but paid 2X by booking it through a site. I know for next time. Reviews online are questionable so I recommend you ask Friends and Family for their experience.
Just by entering the beautiful historical building, you feel in a different world. After we changed, we got into the hot Hammam area - it was not as hot as I thought it would. It's all white marble top to bottom, and very clean. We were first left to water ourselves down, then brought to the central marble piece, where we go the scrubbing. Be ready, this is quite surprising (and a bit hurtful) first but then you wonder how come you don't do that more often as you feel so clean and reinvigorated. We had upgraded to a massage as well while on site, and this really completed the experience perfectly. There were not that many people so it was a definite intimate experience, and from the majestic building to the full attention and treatment from our masseurs, it was perfect! You can't go to Istanbul and not have a Hamman, and Hamman Cagaloglu was the perfect choice!
"What a surprise! I had a vague memory of a sauna back in France and this was a way different experience. After getting changed and wrapped in a towel, we were brought to a huge dome area, all in white marble. The temperature and humidity were quite high but total bearable, but get you ready for the next steps, sweating and all in the steamy bath chamber. A masseur then comes to give you a good exfoliating scrub and a good wash. One can use a small bucket to keep watering down, with cold or hot water. It was a nice moment, unexpected and relaxing.
