Fodor's Expert Review Süleymaniye Hamamı

Sultanahmet Spas

Part of the complex of buildings around the Süleymaniye Camii, and built, like the mosque, by Sinan in the 1550s, the Süleymaniye Hamamı is unique in being the only coed hammam in the Old City. It caters specifically to couples and families—in fact, single travelers and single-sex groups cannot visit. Some may find the coed arrangement (with no nudity) preferable to going to a sex-segregated hammam, but it's no less touristy than the rest and women should note that there are only male masseurs. Rates are about 135 TL per person.
