AcquaMadre Hammam Reviews
I’ve been to a Turkish hammam before in Spain and loved my experience so I wanted to try this place after trekking Italy for 9 days straight. I got the hammam, deep sea salt scrub, and Ayurvedic... more »
I have been in Europe for 2 weeks and this was well needed. Very attentive staff and very peaceful. I definitely recommend it! more »
I booked a visit at the Aquamadre Hammam for the women’s only night during my trip to Rome. While I was planning the trip, I knew that I would need some relaxation and pampering after a long transatlantic flight and many days of trekking throughout the amazing city that is Rome. Located in the Jewish ghetto part of the city, the hammam is beautiful and totally charming. The staff were kind and professional, and there is always someone to help guide you through the process. You start by changing out of your clothes in the dressing room, and you can either go totally nude or wear some version of a bathing suit - there were women who did both, so just choose your preference. From there, you are led down to the grottos beneath the main building into a beautifully candle lit space. They will hand you a small bowl of soap and ask you to clean your body, and they will pour warm water over you which is so relaxing. From there, you will alternate between the heated steam room and back into the main room which is warm, but less heated. I highly recommend dousing yourself in cold water while you are in the steam room, its very relaxing for the nerves. Once you have had your fill of that, they will lead you to another marble slab where you lay down and they will scrub your body from head to toe - I never felt more clean! Afterwards, you will retreat to a cool pool of water and relax there. If you did not book a treatment, you would then go back upstairs in their lounge room where fresh tea will be waiting for you. I proceeded to have the lavender honey facial done, which was lovely but frankly could have skipped it just because I was already so blissed out from the hammam experience. It did moisturize my weary skin though, which was going bonkers from travel. If you have time afterwards, I would highly recommend going to eat at one of the many kosher restaurants in the area - get the fried artichoke if it is in season! All in all, a wonderful experience and I would definitely do it again if I were in Rome. Budget at least 2 hours for the process from start to finish.
Before arriving I had emailed to see if the stone was hot, they confirmed it was. When I arrived it was barely even warm!!! I paid for an hour and got about 40 minutes. The massage felt like she was barely touching my skin and I had asked her to change it to be harder she said ok but nothing changed. Wouldn’t recommend this place for the price.
