Classic Collection Holidays is offering year-round short breaks to Istanbul for thefirst time this year, with a choice of six properties including the two Four Seasons properties, the recently opened W Hotel and the Park Hyatt Istanbul Macka Palas.

The company’s head of purchasing and product, Gary Boyer, said: “Istanbul’s status as the European Capital of Culture 2010 seems to be making a very positive contribution to the promotion of the city to judge by short breaks sales.


“The capital experienced a surge in popularity last year with a 23% increase in the number of tourist arriving from the UK.”

For bookings made to Park Hyatt Istanbul, the operator is offering five nights for the price of four, or ten nights for the price of eight for stays completed by October 31, saving from £304 per couple per stay.
