Korays place is absolutely fabulous! Theres loads of places to check out in the area and its close to the subway. Theres no elevator so heavy bags will be a bit of a workout. Didnt get to meet Koray but his assistant was a great help when we arrived. We loved out stay and would definitely stay there again!
My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at Koray's place for my birthday and had an absolute blast. Koray's apartment is perfectly located - it was our first visit to New York and we found it really easy to navigate our way to everywhere we wanted to go. Getting uptown for touristy things is a breeze, whilst right on your doorstep you have more bars, shops and restaurants than you could possibly ever visit! It's also easy to get to Brooklyn, which we were glad of as we really liked it there. A couple of stops on the subway and you're right in the thick of it - and being able to hop right back on at 4am to come home was amazing (as Londoners this was a bit of a novelty!)
As for the apartment - it's just like the pictures: bright, modern, spacious and clean. We loved the sound system with speakers in the bedroom and the cool (and clever) bathroom. The bed is VERY comfy which was great as we were always very tired each night after walking everywhere! We didn't actually meet Koray but the booking process was smooth, he was very responsive to any questions, and picking up the keys was a doddle.
As others have said the only drawback is the stairs (there are a lot of them!) but despite a heat wave whilst we were there we never found it a problem and trust me, the amount you'll probably eat whilst you're there you'll be glad of some form of exercise!
All in all we wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at Koray's place and as soon as we can we'll be back!

We had a great visit at the apartment. It is clean and beautiful and the place looks just like the photos.
The bed was very comfortable and the living room full of space and light.
The location was good and it was very easy to get around town.
The suggestions on where to eat and get coffee were great and gave us a good handle on the neighborhood.
Koray was great about correspondence and we easily got our key.
He also let us stay in the place for a few hours after check-out because our flight was at night.
It was a great experience, I would highly recommend the place.
Apartment is awesome and super spacious!! Top location and full of interesting things to look at. Feels like the cool NYC loft you see in the movies. Did have an issue getting the details for picking up the keys, but all worked out at the last minute so no complaints.
Je suis passée prendre mon fils à Montréal pour l'amener à NY fêter ses 20 ans !! Je voulais un lieu qui soit vraiment NY, ambiance loft, design, avec le souci du détail dans la déco, bien équipé, confortable, de l'espace, une belle vue, accessible à pied dans Soho et facile pour tous les transports !! Nous avons trouvé tout cela dans le loft de Koray. nous nous sommes sentis à l'aise tout de suite, m^me si nous sommes beaucoup sortis, le temps passé dans cet agréable appartement était très cool, malgré les 5 étages raides !!!
The place was amazing way better than a hotel! Close to everything in Les and SoHo. I would stay here again whole foods is close too in case you wanna grab snacks and coffee to brew in the morning. Stairs are a hike but well worth the veiw of the World Trade Center.I already miss this place.
Really enjoyed having this place as a base in New York - the location could not have been better, endless bars and restaurants. And we were lucky enough to have a week long Italian street fayre taking place a couple blocks away. We used the Spring Street subway to get everywhere although there was a subway station just around the corner... just enjoyed the stroll in the sunshine to the 6 line.
I'd forgotten to bring a British to US plug adaptor but an electrical shop in China Town like a block away had them in stock for $3.
It felt like anything and everything I wanted was on tap. Lots of interesting shops selling weird and wonderful interior fittings - yummy stuff for a property investor.
The apartment looks exactly like the photos, and there's a full length mirror on the inside of the wardrobe door... didn't find that until about day 3 haha! Koray was super helpful with recommendations and instructions on how to use his amazing audio visual system, and very flexible re allowing us to leave our bags in the apartment on the last day as our flight was pretty late.
Everything about this space was perfect. I even enjoyed the walk up to the top floor - healthy stuff! the bed was super comfy and sitting out in the sun on the fire escape taking in the view was magic (and an adrenalin rush if you're scared of heights).
I can't find any fault with this place at all...
The glass wet room within the bedroom is a genius use of space. Thank you so much Koray for sharing this space with the world. I feel really privileged to have experienced it. Like something out of a movie. You clever chap!
Koray and Simon are very friendly, communicative and responsible guests. They left the apartment in a perfect condition. Thank you Koray and Simon and visit us as much as you can while you are in Istanbul again. :)
We very much enjoyed hosting Koray. He was friendly, easy going and considerate and left the apartment just as he had found it. Thank you!
Koray is cool!
I haven't meet the rest of the family but I had an easy comunication with all of them!
Nice And friendly guest to recomend on airbnb!
Koray was a great guest, he is always welcome back!
