Overlooking the Golden Horn, this historic hotel is located in the Tepebaşı district of Pera once known as the “Little Europe”. The Pera Palace was completed in 1895 and so began its journey. Its purpose was for hosting the passengers of the Orient Express and indeed Room 411 is named after Agatha Christie as it is claimed she wrote “Murder on the Orient Express” here. A unique blend of neo-classical exterior façade and an oriental interior, it has welcomed royalty and famous guests from around the world; notable names include Zsa Zsa Gabor, Greta Garbo, Alfred Hitchcock, and Jacqueline Kennedy; many of whom have suites named after them.
