GLS***74If you go here and don't visit one of Istanbul's historic hammams, you deserve a spanking. That said, the experience here is over the top and you'll feel like a sultan. Well-trained therapists and a gorgeous facility. A nice mix of Turkish tradition and modern indulgence. Guests get a 50% discount on weekdays so let that be additional encouragement to stay at the hotel.
