I think we paid $1 each for a guided tour - definitely recommend that. This bath reminds me of the working hammams in Turkey, but of course this one is not working. If Stone Town could get it going again, boy would that be a money maker! Very cool place and absolutely incredible innovation for the time period. Quick tour... 更多
Perfectly preserved Hamanan very atmospheric a must for lovers of Arabic culture. It is open each day from aboutt 10 am to 6pm entry is with a small donation
All the areas in the hamam have written descriptions which help to gain an understanding of the bath rituals. I enjoyed looking around the separate areas and the entry fee is very cheap
It cost only $1 per person so the tour was value for money. The guide was extremely knowlegable. I found the level about the building and what it meant very interesting. Make sure you climb on the Sultan and Princess' seats on top of the building. Great view!
the entrance fee is small so its worth it if you happen to stumble upon it. The guide doesn't really guide at all. Interesting but it could be more than it is...

Once we finally found the baths (with some help) we got a great tour from one of the staff there. They are very knowledgeable... 更多
This is one of the few places we visited. It was operational with a guide. He brought the story alive with his full description of the use of the baths. Where the Sultan entertained his colleagues. We went upstairs to view the architecture of the roof and saw views of the area
Although the entrante fee is farely cheap, they facilities are in need of serious preservation or restoration. If you go with a guide is probable better, because there are just a few signs explaining what you are looking at and they are not very extensive, so you have to imagine most of what was going on there.
