At the edge of the Black Sea and about an hour's boat ride from Istanbul up the Bosphorus River, sits the little known hillside town of Kilyos. A 20euro ride from the port, the Kilyos Kale hotel was situated at the top of this quiet town and holiday residents were all Turkish, except for my boyfriend and myself.
The rooms were large, with stunning views of the Black Sea and surrounding beaches, cleaned to pristine standards every morning and complete with quiet air con and coffee table and seating areas.
Food was inexpensive in the hotel and tourist prices in the town were unheard of makming it the cheapest three nights of our trip and we enjoyed some of the town's freshest fish in local restaurants just a couple mins walk away.
The hotel boasts a quiet but pleasant outdoor pool complete with stunning backdrop views and is less than a five min walk to one of three potential beaches in the local area.
Would reccommend this hotel to anyone needing a break from the city style of Istanbul but wanting to avoid the tourist rife areas of Bodrum and Marmaris.
