Spoil yourself at the Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamamı

The beautiful inside of historic Kilic Ali Pasa Hamam

Whether or not you need an excuse for it, nothing changes the fact that a Turkish bath experience (alone or with friends) at the Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamamı is a great way to spoil yourself. Designed by the great Ottoman architect Sinan and featuring a beautiful dome, it’s mostly geared towards tourists, which results in a super-clean and efficient hamam experience.

It’s located in Tophane, just a stone’s throw from the buzzing Karaköy neighborhood. Making a reservation is as easy as it gets. Just go to their website and click on ‘Make A Reservation‘ to pick the time, date, and number of guests. If you want to go above and beyond, add a 60 minute full-body massage (180 TL) in addition to the hamam treatment (140 TL).

Make sure to enjoy a cup of Turkish coffee or one of their signature teas in the relaxation area afterwards.
