    After 45 minutes of research, I am still very confused about which hammams are where. Readings from other websites and blog posts suggest that there are 4 different names that all refer to the same hammam: Çinili Hamam, Eski Hamam, Şifa Hamam and Mehmet Paşa Hamam. Your listing suggests that Çinili Hamam is a separate instutition from Eski Hamam, but that Eski Hamam does indeed go by the names of Şifa and Mehmet Paşa as well. Can you please email me with information about these? Are they one, or two, or more different hammams?

    More generally, which hammam in Istanbul is both easily accessible from Altunizade and on the cheaper side?

    Cok tesekkur ederim!

    …And in another perusal, it does seem that Eski/Şifa Hamam is nonetheless a separate instutition from just Şifa Hamam in Kartal. Is this correct?

    I believe Eski/Şifa Hamam or Mehmet Paşa Hamam are one hamam with 3 names that are different than Çinili although both in Üsküdar. I haven’t been to Eski Hamam so I can’t say for sure but they have completely different addresses, so I am thinking different places for sure. If you go to Eski Hamam, why don’t you report back on what you have found and you can write up a review of your experience there, a la the tenor of this site. We’d love to read and possibly post it. Also I’ve never heard of these names used for Çinili. As for Şifa Hamam, yes there are two others (at least). One in Kartal, as you noted and one in Sultanahmet. It is a common name with hamams I imagine, meaning, appropriately, ‘healing.’

    Hi, I am a portuguese photographer, and I am preparing a project on the architecture and objects os Istambul Hamams. The project will be part of an exhibition that is travelling across Europe. For that I am trying to get in contact with the Hamams do get permissions to photograph, after or before opening hours, therefore without the clients.
    The thing is I am interested in the non so turistic hamams, and most f them don’t even have a email address. Still I wrote, in English, to the ones that do have emails, but got no answers.
    Do you know if there is an association of Hamams (or maybe even the City Hall ) that I can write to, to maybe help me with the permissions? Any tips are welcome. Thank you in advance
