Istanbul Hotel Gets 007 James Bond Inspired Look

News If you plan a visit to Istanbul and are a fan of Ian Fleming or James Bond movies, think no more and book a room at Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah that got a special look to celebrate the return of the Black Week festival. The internationally famous crime literature festival will take place from 16 to 18 November. The 2017 event is dedicated to James Bond and Ian Fleming, the creator of the renowned spy. By the way, Fleming himself stayed at Pera Palace in 1955.

To celebrate the approaching festival, the Istanbul hotel offers a special package, the Black Week. It includes a series of talks, meetings, panel discussions, and other events in one way or another connected with crime writing and classic novels in this genre. As famous local and international detective writers and actors will visit the festival, guests of the hotel will be able to meet them. This year, the line-up includes Anthony Horowitz, the author of crime and detective best-sellers and continuation novelist of James Bond, from Great Britain; Charlie Higson, the British actor who is also famous as the author of Young Sherlock series; and Ahmet Umit, Turkish detective writer.

Fans of James Bond will hardly miss an opportunity to participate in the opening of the festival and even visit the room in which Ian Fleming stayed and see various precious artifacts connected with the famous MI6 agent, James Bond. As Pera Palace is one of the most respectable hotels in Istanbul, a stay there promises to be not only entertaining but also a comfortable one.

Pera Palace Hotel Jumeirah possesses an honorable title of “one of the best hotels in the world for book lovers”. During its 125-year long history, the hotel greeted many famous guests, and Ian Fleming is not the only prominent writer on the list. It is rumored that Agatha Christie wrote her brilliant novel Murder On the Orient Express while staying in Room 411. Alfred Hitchcock also enjoyed staying there.

Located in ever popular Beyoglu district, Pera Palace is a paragon of Turkish hospitality. The 155 guest rooms of the hotel feature timeless classic style of the 19th century, but the hotel has a distinctive vibe of modern cosmopolitan Istanbul. Travelers, who want to participate in the festival, are recommended to purchase the Black Week Package that costs 120 euro per night, room included.
