Overview

History buffs will appreciate hotel's museum, original elevator and 19th-century architecture
Some past guests said rooms overlooking the main street were noisy

Designed by Levantine architect Alexandre Vallaury, Istanbul's Pera Palace Hotel has welcomed iconic figures like Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock since opening in 1892. The historic property features 115 traditional accommodations – some named after famous former guests like Ernest Hemingway and Greta Garbo – with antique furniture and Carrara marble bathrooms, plus amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, HD televisions and minibars. Despite being described as "beautiful" by many past visitors, some cited noise as an issue and suggested booking a room away from the main street. Outside your digs, you'll find a spa, a fitness center, an indoor pool, several lounges, a pastry shop and a restaurant inspired by Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express." But previous guests said one of the property's more unique facilities is its Atatürk Museum Room. Regularly reserved by 20th-century Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, this former hotel room now acts as a museum dedicated to the late politician. Everything from Atatürk's clothes to medals from the 20th century are on display here. If you enjoy history, also ask to use the hotel's original electric elevator, which was the first installed in Turkey. After, walk to nearby attractions like Taksim Square and Galata Tower.
