Located in the cosmopolitan Tebebaşı district of Beyoğlu and dating back to 1892, the Pera Palace overlooks the Golden Horn with 115 rooms including 16 suites named after the Hotel’s most illustrious guests or their creations. Five of its luxury suites (above) are named after Ernest Hemingway, who had his protagonist, the writer Harry, stay at the hotel in the short story The Snows of Kilimanjaro. The interiors have been decorated in jade blue to reflect Hemingway's love of the sea and earth brown for his love for cigars.
