Gedikpaşa Hamamı information
This Ottoman-era hamam has been operating since 1475. Its shabby interior isn't as beautiful as those at Çemberlitaş and Cağaloğlu, but services are cheaper and there are separate hamams, small dipping pools and saunas for both sexes. Best of all is the fact that the masseuses in the women's section occasionally break into song while working.
The operators will sometimes transport guests to and from Sultanahmet hotels at no charge – ask your hotel to investigate this option.
