It functioned as a hammam until the population exchange in 1925 (between the Cretan Turks and the Greeks of Minor Asia), when it was converted into a bakery and a floor was built in place of the central dome.
It is structurally preserved in a fairly good condition after private efforts by the new owner. Work done in the last decade with a painstaking cleaning of later phases of the building. Additional building elements such as stone walls, light constructions of bagdato-walls (chatmades), wooden elements and a large volume of mortar of various construction phases of the building were removed. Openings were made, arches were restored and vaults, corridors were cleared and revealed, and masonry was poured. An adjacent ground floor building (Nikiforou Fokas 86) was purchased with its superstructure to allow the monument to breathe and be restored.
The building today has the following spaces:
A. The reception, directly from 86 Nikiforou Foka Street, is a four-sided low-ceiling space. There are indications that a window on the south wall has been converted into a door that connected the space with the adjacent small shop.
B. The main area of the Ottoman bath (former oven). It is a single large square space with large arches and a circular frame which, through spherical triangles, the hemispherical dome was carried (completely destroyed today). The space had a great height. With space dimensions of 6.20 X 6.20 m. with an area of 38.44 sq.m. with an expansion of width 0.92 X 4.25 and 4.90m. respectively, to the two opposite sides, north and south. The total area becomes 46.43 sq.m. The clear height of the space up to the wooden loft is 4.68 m. In the western wall, a new opening was created with a wide arch that illuminates the space of the therm, which was completely dark before.
C. The third space has a rectangular oblong plan with a semi-cylindrical vaulted roof. With dimensions of 5.40 X 5.00 m. and an area of 16.20 sq.m. with a height of 4.70 m. to the middle of the arch.
D. Quadrilateral space smaller than space B, the hot room of the hammam, which retains its structural elements, i.e. the four spherical arches, the circular perimeter frame and its hemispherical dome intact and in good condition. The space expands to the west with a large arch.
E. Two small auxiliary spaces have an entrance from the north side of the vaulted space C with dimensions 1.98 X 1.36 NW and an area of 1.90 sq.m. and 1.36 X 2.78 m. at the NE and an area of 2.42 sq.m.
F. Two more small rooms, parts of the old bath, are located to the north and in direct contact with the area of the large dome D. The SE is covered with a dome and has dimensions of 2.17 X 1.62 m. and an area of 3.47 sq.m. The NE is long and narrow and housed with a lowered dome. It has dimensions of 1.60 X 1.75 m. and an area of 4.76 sq.m. Its height is 2.33 m. at the highest point. In this area east of the wall, a later small opening (window) was created to light the area.
G. Small atrium - skylight with great height, was created by removing the floor of the room on the first floor, with dimensions of 2.96 X 2.60 m. and a total height of 7.28 m.
