There’s no Ottoman ambience on offer at the spa centre of this bland hotel just off Divan Yolu, but all treatments are private, meaning that you get the small hamam all to yourself. The signature 60- or 75-minute 'Oriental Massage' package (€50 to €60) includes a facial massage, hamam treatment and expert 30-minute oil massage.

The spa's massage therapist Zeki Ulusoy is trained in sports, remedial and aromatherapy massage and he really knows his stuff – you’ll float out of here at the end of a session. The 50-minute 'Ottoman' package (€40) comprises a 20-minute body scrub and a 30-minute foam massage.
