A Day at the Paris Mosque Hammam

I am thinking of making a reservation here. Can anyone enlighten me as to what the experience is like? Thanks in advance.

No, but I read a great article about them a couple years ago and have been intrigued ever since -- I hope somebody with real experience can enlighten us!

I think that they alternate men and women/s days. Call first.

Yes they do alternate days, unfortuntely I don't have the info with me right now about which days are which... Also, I don't think you need reservations, I just walked in a got a package treatment. Expect to be there for a few hours, it was a very nice experience. As for what happens, you go in (underware or bikini bottoms required) and shower off. Then you can spend some time in the steam room pouring hot or cold water over yourself, or jump in the small pool (it was so hot in this room it burned my skin before I got to the pool, so I can't rememeber if the pool is hot or cold). Then you wait to get a "gommage" which is where a woman will use a mit to scrub all the grime and dead skin off you. Back to the steam rooms or finish off with a nice massage. Have fun! They also have an excellent tea room that is not to be missed!

Thanks for all the info, & to you to topper. But what about an American going there, considering world events? Should I be concerned, or no? Thank you.

I've been and it is out of this world. Saturdays are women's day and I felt as if I was in a harem being prepared for the Sultan. Be prepared to spend a few hours. I did a package that cost approx. $50 and included entree, grommage, massage, and tea. I wore my panties but noticed other women wearing nothing or the same. Most everyone had a little see-thru light sarong. They will rent you a towel and thongs if you don't have with you. It's a must on my list whenever I visit Paris.
