‘Hamami’ or Turkish bath is a place where you can relax. We went there on Thursday, the 13th of February after a hard day of work.  This Hamami is one of the better Turkish baths in Izmir. It’s an absolute must.

There is a possibility to take a sauna and to have a massage/wash. This is done through a certain process.

This Turkish bath is situated nearby the ‘Asansor’. (must see place in Izmir). Just a 20 – 30 min. walk from Konak metro station.

A tough day behind or just chilling out ? Just one address ! The feeling you have after this treatment is incredible !

You are not clean until you have been to a hamam!!!

Balçova Termal Otel

How to get there from yasar University..

– take metro in Bölge to Halkapinar
– take bus 169/269 in Halkapinar to Balçova (last stop)
– in front of the bus station you will find the Termal Otel !

As the name says, it is a hotel, but everyone can go to swim or enjoy a  bubble bath.

There’s an indoor an outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is heated, which makes it very pleasant to chill outside, even when it’s dark.

We advice you to go there around 8 o’clock in the evening, like we did. The swimming pool closes at 11 o’clock.

it’s great to enjoy a hot bubble batch late at night.
