Every superlative applies.
The location, ambience, setting are pure perfection. Our stay was far too brief; yet, no duration would satiate. Ohhhh, we shall cherish memories of Orient Pearl and endeavour to return again.
Sincere appreciation to our host, the supporting cast consisting of tea shop manager and housekeeper.
The rental is outstanding and is most comfortable. It is located within walking distance of many shops, restaurants as well as fast foods, freshly made juices just on the corner with a convenience store across the street. It is in the heart of historic Istanbul and it was perfect for us. If you are into night light, it is abundant within a short distance. If you need a taxi, many go by the place without a need to hunt one down. The bathrooms were lovely and modern. I would return without any hesitation and therefore hightly recommend staying here.
A very spacious apartment, 2 nice bedrooms and 2 beautiful shower rooms.Wonderful area with lots to do and see. We should have stayed longer.
We had a small family reunion holiday in Istanbul and Orient Pearl became our beautiful home for a week where it was nice to stay. Good location in the vibrant city centre with easy access to transportation, main tourist destinations, and shopping. I would highly recommend this apartment to my friends who wish to stay in Istanbul with a comfort.
This is a wonderful apartment for a city break in Istanbul. It is central and easy to reach attractions, shopping, history. The apartment is clean and tidy with everything you need. We were very comfortable. I highly recommend this apartment to you.
At the beginning we had many questions. The owner, David went above and beyond. He answered or questions. In addition he gave us information that helped us enjoy restaurants and places we were unaware of. The apartment was spactaculer. Marble bathrooms, comfortable beds and kitchen supplies. We will return to this apartment in the near future.
Thank you David
Having never been to Istanbul, I wasn't sure about location but the Orient Pearl is in the perfect spot. It's literally 30 seconds off Istiklal, where you can find tonnes of restaurants and amazing shopping opportunities. The restaurant just across the road has amazing chocolate souffle and fish dishes, and there's a great cafe next door for breakfast. It's all on your door step.
As for the apartment, it's looked after by a man called Mehmet who is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very large, with incredibly comfortable beds and gorgeous bathrooms. Kitchen has all the mod cons you would need - although we didn't use any as all the restaurants nearby are fantastic - although you'll find coffee machine, microwave, oven, dishwasher etc. if you do want to cook at home. It also felt very secure, and public transport was really accessible - it's 5 min walk from two metro stations.
It's just like a home away from home, we will definitely be returning.
