Room 411

Room 411

An international thriller, secret diaries and a clairvoyant - if walls could talk, those of Room 411 at Jumeirah Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul would certainly tell an interesting tale.

Steeped in mystery and intrigue, the room was a favourite for Agatha Christie, one of the greatest crime writers of all time. An unexplained 11-day disappearance from England is attributed to a secret visit to this historic hotel, where she is rumoured to have penned the timeless masterpiece, ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.

The room was also thought to be the secret hiding place of the key to Ms. Christie’s diaries. When the floorboards were lifted, a key was indeed discovered, however, to this day, the box housing the diaries remains elusive. Is it still at the hotel? The mystery continues.
