My dear fellow traveller:
Can I encourage you to share with me your most memorable dress-code experience at a hotel? Please send me a short mail (guests: your best story; hoteliers: your most important dress codes).
Below you find the link to our classic "Around the World in 80 Days" and the reaffirming report that the Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul is reopening this May.
Needless to say that I will keep you informed about all important "famous hotels" events this spring.

Thank you for your orders of our new book Premier Palace Kyiv (Kiev).
Yours, as always
