Pera Palace Hotel Istanbul Reviews
Peras Palace Istanbul May 11, 2010
I thought it would be a neat idea to stay at the hotel where Agatha Christie stayed last before she disappeared.
My room was once stayed by Hemingway (with the plate on the door). The hotel is frozen in time. I think the bed, the sheets, the towels are as old as the hotel! There is no heating in the bathroom, the mattress sagged, and the armoired smelled so bad from mildew.
The room is lit by one 60W light bulb, making it very eerie. I actually woke up in the middle of the night thinking about the spirit that have stayed in this room...creepy!
Spare the historical place, head to the Hilton Istanbul or the Kempinski.
