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.

Thank you for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Your apartment is wonderful. Thank you for making our trip so easy. everything went like you said from the airport to the apartment and your recommendations were spot on. After a few days we were exploring the area by ourselves and finding the most amazing stores and artisan workshops. As well as historical buildings. took hundreds of pictures, can I submit some of them?. Thank you David and Suleyman.

Beyoglu my favorite area of Istanbul

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed many times in apartments around Istanbul. Orient Pearl is a hidden gem. So close to everything and the best value for money I have found. Every morning we had breakfast in the cafe adjoining the building. In the evening we would dine at one of the many rooftop restaurants. Thank you David, we appreciate the calm and tranquility of your apartment.

Wonderful Istanbul

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spotlessly clean, everything is of high quality, the beds are very comfortable and the apartment is extremely quite - for the centre of a huge city its amazing. Our first night we stayed in a hotel close to the Airport, couldn't sleep because of the call to prayer reverberating round the buildings.

If you are going to stop over in Istanbul i recommend this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The building dust look much from the outside but inside its a beautiful well appointed apartment with the most luxurious bathrooms I have ever seen!!!

The location is, as it says, in the middle of everything. Istanbul is such a vibrant city, the people are wonderful and couldn't have been kinder. To think we nearly missed out on this wonderful experience, the coup and all the immigrants problems nearly stopped us. So glad we came and experienced the hospitality and people of Turkey. David couldn't have been more helpful. We would recommend Orient Pearl without hesitation.

Great place for a food lover

  • 5 of 5

I am a journalist, gastronomic delights, I needed a central apartment, well connected with internet, wifi etc. As a bonus this superbly furnished apartment has a printer. Within 200m of this apartment there are some world class restaurants. some with amazing views over the Bosporus but to learn more you will have to wait for my book to be finished!
