Sirkeci, the district between Sultanahmet and SirkeciRailway Station in Istanbul, has several 3-star hotels that are lower in price than its nice 4-star hotels.
It's an easy walk from here to Gülhane Park and the Archeological Museums, and only a few more minutes from Topkapı Palace, Sultanahmet and the Hippodrome.
Lots of restaurants are right near the hotels.
