Cheapest and fastest way;
Istanbul has two main airports in service so far. Ataturk Airport is the main airport on European continent. Just remember below token prices can be changed in the future. but probably might go up smaller percentages. These are updated ones. The first tip will be the hotel you booked. Some hotels may offer free pick up services from both airports, so always better to ask if they FREE of charge transport.

Ataturk Airport to Sultanahmet area;
Istanbul Metro;
the best way i always recommend to use istanbul metro system which goes via zeytinburnu to heart of sultanahmet.
Just u need to buy token at the metro station from the machine buy paying 3 Turkish Liras for each token

Time table;
From Airport to Zeytinburnu (M1-red line)
between 06.00 - 00.00

From Zeytinburnu to Sultanahmet (T1-blue line)
between 06.00-00.17
between 06.00-00.16

After getting on metro (tram) M1 line, u need to switch tram at zeytinburnu station to (T1 line) sultanahmet direction tram. (sultanahmet is not the last stop, last stop at front u ll see Kabatas either Eminonu) There you are at heart of Sultanahmet...
