Some hammams are designed with the same intention, but are divided by gender. For example, one hamam in Istanbul was specifically designed for women and reportedly gave them free black panties.

If you're looking for a full blown experience, the Sengul Hammam is the place to go. It offers an array of services including a steam room, sauna and a massage. You can also pay to have an attendant scrub you down for an extra charge.
