Kahramanmaras (KCM) Hotels
A small domestic airport just 7 kilometers from the city center, Kahramanmaras Airport (KCM) serves daily flights to and from Istanbul. It’s a much easier – and quicker – trip by air than overland, making the airport an ideal entry point to Turkey’s southeastern Anatolia, as well as the city center, whether you’re headed here for business or leisure.Hotels in
Because of its size, you won’t find too many hotels near Kahramanmaras Airport. Luckily you won’t have to travel far to find accommodation, as it’s a quick drive into the center where you can pick from hotels scattered across the city. A small number of large hotels offer luxury accommodation – think 4-star amenities and plush decor, including soft Egyptian cotton bedding, thick neutral carpets, and a sleek on-site bar and restaurant. Those on a tighter budget should head to a local guesthouse.Where to stay
Kahramanmaras city center’s a short drive from the airport, and is a buzzing place where you can join locals shopping in the colorful covered bazaar, head for a Turkish lounge to people watch and drink sweet tea, or take a stroll to the ancient 16th Century Ulu Cami mosque. If you choose a hotel on the city’s outskirts, head to a local café before you leave to try some of Kahramanmaras’ famously creamy ice cream.How to get to Kahramanmaras (KCM)
You can fly to Kahramanmaras Airport from Istanbul. From the airport, it’s a short 14-minute taxi drive into the city center. You could also arrange to hire a car, and have it waiting for you at the airport. Some larger hotels offer an airport pickup service. By far the cheapest – and possibly most fun – mode of transport is to flag down a dolmus – or public minibus – from the roadside at the front of the airport.
