About David

Originally from England, I love Istanbul and spend a lot of my time here. I also travel extensively in Europe and Turkey.

David purchased this apartment in 2011

Why David chose Istanbul

This is the perfect location. Steps from Istiklal yet peaceful with a sense of community.

I have stayed in many properties before finding this one. It is a large apartment unusual for older properties in Istanbul. Full use was made of the space providing 2 large en suite bathrooms, Large lounge and big kitchen area. You will not feel cramped.

Feel free to contact me in the USA. All transactions can be done in Dollars and through US banks, checks etc to my address in Florida.

What makes this apartment unique

A tea shop in the lobby. Hot tea or coffee any time of day. Dozens of restaurants and shops. entertainment on the door step.

Set up for business, WiFi and printer, T.V. and house phone. Mobile phone pay as you go. A host of adaptors and chargers for Apple etc:

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great care has been taken by the owner to make Orient Pearl beautiful and convenient in every way. We had a fantastic time in Istanbul, were able to visit comfortably with friends in the flat, and enjoy the hospitality and detail to attention provided by the incomprable Mr. Suliman. He and his tea shop added to the enjoyment of our stay. We cannot recommend this flat more highly. It was great for a vacation, would be very comfortable for business, and could easily work for a family. We will be back!

As for tips - if you haven't been to Istanbul, take full advantage of the amazing sights. Aside from incredible monuments and buildings, be sure to visit the asian side, take a ferry up the Bospherous, and bring home condiments from the Spice Market. People are friendly and engaging about their city, so be sure to initiate conversations.

average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We (two) spent a great time in this beautiful apartment in the heart of Beyoglu/Istanbul.

The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and has a good atmosphere.

The location close to Galatasaray Lisesi at Istiklal Caddesi is perfect to reach all the top sights of Istanbul.

Also, there are lots of various restaurants, cafés and bars around including a historic hamam.

The rental's description is accurate in all its particulars.

So we can fully recommend this rental.

Our best regards to the owner and last not least to Suleyman.

Fabulous spot in Istanbul

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at The Orient Pearl. It was a beautiful, clean apartment with comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchen was well stocked, the bathrooms were spacious. The location was perfect. The location of the bedrooms were such that we did not hear street noise! Sightseeing, shops, tram, metro, etc was well within walking distance. Numerous Good restaurants were so close and a well stocked grocery store is right across the street. Our host, David was quite delightful. He was quick to reply to all our questions and was most helpful in all aspects of our stay. We highly recommend the Orient Pearl. Everything was perfect!

Fantastic find in the heart of Beyoglu

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Istanbul at this apartment. Each bedroom has its own private bath, and most importantly, a very comfortable bed. Not the case in all the places we have stayed in Europe, where the beds are often uncomfortable. David has a great staff to help you resolve problems (we got delayed and arrived at midnight), and the apartment is complete in every respect and has everything you would expect. Big plus, a grocery store right across the street. Best restaurant within walking distance: Varka, English menus and friendly staff.

The apartment is in perfect conditions. With excellent bathrooms, kitchen, beds and air condition. Fast internet and good satellite TV. Everything you can ask. The best is that you are only half block from Istiklial CD. The trendiest commercial promenade with all type of restaurants, stores, small streets full AF places to discover and night life. The building is old and you have to be in good physical condition as the four floor stairs are taxing. I would recommend it to my Daugther.

Owner's Response: A special thank you to you and to all the guests that come to stay at the apartment. Your support and kindness in taking care of things during your stay ensure that the apartment is always in tip top shape. I chose this apartment not just for the superb location but because it is quite, spacious and roomy. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, there is no elevator but the stairs are wide and there is help with bags. (If you count the ground floor as the 1st floor then the apartment is on the 4th floor!). Thank you for your review.

Absolutely perfect accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot add really too much to all these testimonies you can read here. All these positive descriptions are really true. You can get perfect accommodation in the perfect location for reasonable price. You will find everything you might need to spend fantastic vacations very close to most popular and famous street in Istanbul. All the historic areas are in walking distance and even tram is available it is always smart to walk and see all these colourful streets and step in for a while to the local shops offering almost everything.

Don't hesitate! Take it! You will be delighted!
