The building plan included two separate bath units. Today, it is used as an arcade that contains coffee shops and retail units. In the west is the Men’s Section with four iwans and four private rooms. The women’s section in the east has three iwans and two private rooms.

The men’s section consists of a changing room, a room, and a hot room. A toilet was added at a later date. The entrance to the men’s section is on the west side of the building. The changing room, the lukewarm room, the main space of the hot room, and the private rooms in the corners are domed. The iwans and the toilet are covered with vaults.

The smaller original women’s section has not survived to the present day. Two doors on the east façade provide access to this section. The original changing room no longer exists. The lukewarm room is divided into three parts by two arches. The domed central part is larger than the other two lateral sections covered with vaults. An arched door in the north of the lukewarm (cold) room leads to the hot room. There are private rooms in the northern corners of the section with three iwans.
