Massage in Istanbul:
Best Spas and Hamam

When talking about a massage in Istanbul, the first thing comes to mind is of course hamams, known as Turkish baths. It is very common among locals (and thus travellers) to have a scrub and a massage in a hamam.

If you go to a nice hamam, you'll be guaranteed to have a nice masssage and scrub session, in a very historic and interesting atmosphere.

But if you don't like the idea of going to a public hamam, there are hamams in five-star hotels in Istanbul, where you can sample your share of massage in Istanbul.

And if you are really not into having a hamam experience, you can find spas in Istanbul with very quality service and atmosphere. Most of these spas are in five-star hotels and they are widely known as providing an excellent service.
