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 Beyoğlu

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.

Enjoyed it all

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is every bit as comfortable as shown on the video and is very well equipped. The sole issue is the challenge of taking the stairs to the third floor

Have a great time

It is a Pearl

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for over 30 days in July and August 2017, David and Ugur were fantastical hosts.and responded to all our requests. The apartment was located in a central area, but very quiet. ( make sure you can accomplish three flights of stairs).

The only drawback is a slow internet, they had a technician out several times, but it still was slow especially in the evenings, Definitely cannot support more than one device.

Other than than it is a perfect pearl.

Owner's Response: Dear Joseph and Louisa Thank you for looking after our apartment. You were perfect guests and we loved having you. It always amazes me how peaceful and quite the apartment is when just a few hundred yards away there is a bustling city thousands of years old! We hope you will recommend Orient Pearl to friends and family and when you return to Istanbul, I am sure you will, come and stay again. Lastly I want to thank you for your tip about changing the password on the wifi. It looks like we had someone piggy back, streaming data from our connection. Problem solved. We will change the password more frequently. Just sorry the technician didn't figure it out earlier.

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.
