A'jia Hotel, Istanbul, Turkey - 2 for 1

An ex-pasha’s mansion on the Bosphorus, boutique hotel on the edge of Istanbul has a grand Ottoman exterior that belies its contemporary interior of slick modern design. There’s not a kilim or belly-dancer’s tassel in sight, just chic white-on-white glamour. The understated, modern luxury extends to the sparse, cool bedrooms. Almost as big as the rooms themselves, A'jia Hotel's bathrooms are gorgeous Ottoman chambers of creamy marble and tile.

€360 for a two-night stay in a Waterfront Deluxe Room, or €460 for a Bosphorous Deluxe Room; excludes breakfast (€15 each) and taxes (8 per cent).

Valid for stays until 31 December, excluding Christmas and New Year; two-night minimum stay. Subject to availability.

Corral del Rey, Seville - 3 for 2

Tucked away in one of the labyrinthine narrow streets of Seville’s old quarter, this whitewashed boutique hotel is a reinvention of a 17th-century casa palacio that preserves Roman marble pillars alongside medieval Mudéjar wooden doorways. You can see the whole city from Corral del Rey's poolside rooftop mirador…

Offer valid until 31 December, excluding Christmas and New Year.

Grand Hotel Central - 25% discount

Style: Urban chill

Setting: A ramble from Las Ramblas

Bang in the centre of the Barcelona bustle, Grand Hotel Central provides respite for many a weary traveller, shopper or culture-hound. An imposing 1920s façade masks a warm and well-lit modern retreat, where visitors can watch the city unfold from the eighth-storey roof terrace, then swing back down into the urban action, a doorway’s width away

Why? Sweeping city views from the rooftop pool; great tapas and Catalan cuisine; city-centre setting moments from Las Ramblas.

How much? €225 per night for a Loft Suite, or €300 for a Master Suite; excludes breakfast (€20 each) and taxes (7 per cent).

Small print: Valid for stays until 30 January 2010, excluding 30 December to 3 January; three-night minimum stay. Subject to availability

Riva Lofts, Florence, Italy - 3 for 2

A hip hotel with family-stay warmth; serene riverside location; restyled former-factory setting. Combining the visionary designs of architect Claudio Nardi and the convivial hospitality of his hotelier daughter, Riva Lofts is a dreamily rustic boutique bed and breakfast that’s filled with contemporary artworks, enormous antique mirrors leant against the reclaimed stone walls, and an array of vintage chairs ranging from Louis XIV to Mies van der Rohe. Despite its fashionista-friendly looks, however, Riva Lofts maintains the homespun welcome of a rural bed and breakfast.

€420 for a three-night stay in a Standard Studio, €480 for a Deluxe Studio, €560 for a Superior Deluxe Studio or €1,100 for a Loft Studio, including breakfast and taxes.

Terms and Conditions: Valid for stays from 18 October to 31 December, excluding 5–8 December, Christmas and New Year. Subject to availability.

JK Place, Florence, Italy - 3 for 2

A fantastic location close to Il Duomo; unrivalled concierge service; grand yet comfortable interiors. High, painted ceilings, panelled walls, a Louis XV fireplace and extremely well-edited modern pieces sit comfortably alongside every audiovisual requirement at JK Place. While wanting to avoid any clichéd reference to EM Forster's tale of romance, it is virtually impossible, confronted with three floor-to-ceiling windows, opening onto a small balcony in front of the Basilica.

€1,300 for a three-night stay in a Junior Suite, or €2,000 in a Master Suite, including buffet breakfast, complimentary mini-bar (soft drinks), coffee and tea, welcome drink, WIFI access, and taxes.

Terms and conditions: Valid until 27 December; Friday to Sunday only. Subject to availability.
