Agatha Christie At Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah

Agatha Christie At Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah

'Murder on the Orient Express,' the famous detective novel written by renowned author Agatha Christie in 1934, was inspired during a trip to historical Istanbul.

Agatha fulfilled a lifelong dream when she took the train from Turkey to Iraq and it was during this journey she wrote the book which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. Legend has it, the novel was penned in room 411 at Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah which was originally built in 1892, to host Orient Express passengers. Adding to the property's mystique, this room was re-named after the author and is a must stay for anyone who enjoys intrigue and mystery.

Christie fans should also dine at the hotel's Agatha restaurant which draws influence from three of the most famous stops on the Orient Express, offering the finest in French, Italian and Turkish cuisines, expertly prepared by a team of master chefs.
