I came to Istanbul at the end of my trip, at which point I was hoping to save a bit of money. I don't remember how I found the Orient, but I booked it in advance. I felt so lucky when I got there. Not only was it a great deal, but the location was fantastic and they were so helpful.
I really didn't do much planning for this part of my trip figuring it would be easy to get around and find things to do. They had so many great ideas for me and helped me book many things, all of which turned out to be fantastic. In addition, their cafe was a great place to stop in-between activities and have a coffee or a beer. The location made it so we could walk to so many of the places we ended up seeing and the food scene around that area is great and super affordable. I highly recommend the Orient and if I go back, it will def. be my pick!
