Lonely Planet review
Hammam al-Andalus is both an architectural jewel and a sensory indulgence that takes your senses back in time. Housed in the excavated cellars of old Madrid, this imitation traditional Arab bath offers massages and aromatherapy beneath graceful arches and accompanied by the sound of trickling water. Prices are cheapest from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday (from €24 for the basic bath experience); otherwise, you’ll pay from €27.50 up to €76.50 for the full bath and massage experience, depending on the package; there are discounts for students and for those over 65. Reservations are required. There’s also a Moroccan-style tea room and restaurant upstairs.
