city where East meets West in a profusion of sounds and colours.
Istanbul is its own tumultuous monument to a long, rich history,
with Greeks, Romans and Ottomans contributing to its variety.
The beautiful Topkapi Palace and the great domes of Hagia
Sophia contrast sharply with the decaying wooden houses hanging
precariously from the old city’s steep slopes. The sacred,
soaring beauty of the Blue and the Suleymaniye Mosques seem
worlds away from the noisy trade of the Grand Bazaar nearby.
The mighty Bosphorus, packed with vessels, divides continents
and links cultures.
Elixir’s portfolio of places to stay in this breathtaking
city is unrivalled.
