“Pera Palace is perhaps the most iconic hotel of Istanbul. Built in the 19th century by the Eastern and Orient Express Railways, it's steeped in history and has hosted many famous guests including Agatha Christie who wrote Murder on Orient Express there. The hotel also has a fantastic location near to restaurants, bars and cafes. On warm days, enjoy breakfast on the Orient Terrace overlooking the Golden Horn.”
Situated in the heart of Istanbul in Turkey, Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah is a grand 19th century hotel featuring an elegant mix of styles and offering stunning views across the city. This luxury hotel originally served the elite passengers of the Orient Express and has played host to an impressive list of guests from Alfred Hitchcock to Agatha Christie.
The hotel offers 115 elegant and spacious rooms and suites, most of which come with French balconies. Each room features traditional décor, king-size beds, sumptuous furnishings and stunning bathrooms. The Greta Garbo Corner Rooms are sublime.
Enjoy local and international cuisine in a setting inspired by Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express at the hotel’s signature restaurant Agatha. The decadent afternoon tea in the Kubbeli Saloon Tea Lounge is a must.
Take a dip in the indoor pool, indulge in a treatment at the spa or sip a cocktail at sunset at the Orient Terrace. You can also take a tour of Room 101, which has been converted into the Atatürk Museum.
