Koray's apartment is the perfect place to stay in New York. We stayed there for 5 nights over New Year and had the time of our lives. If you want to feel a bit more like a local then Lower Manhattan is the place to be. The apartment's location is ideal with so many different areas right on your doorstep - We loved Soho, Noho and the villages. There are so many restaurants and bars nearby - We had an awesome breakfast at The Bowery and an amazing dinner at Public, aswell as great visits to Little Italy and Chinatown. We walked to most places and used the subway to head Uptown to the more touristy areas and over to Brooklyn. The apartment was just lovely to head back to after a busy day's adventuring. It is clean and spacious and so full of character. Yes - The stairs are hard work but it really is worth it when you get up there. I wouldn't consider staying in a hotel in New York now I've had the luxury to staying here!
Great appartment with everything clean and tidy. Unlike the pictures it looks and feels more 'lived in' now but this wasn't a problem at all. Area was perfect, 2 minute walk from subway which takes you straight uptown. Safe area very near to shops and cafés etc. Would certainly stay again. P.s the stairs are a definite killer but wouldn't let that put you off staying here.
Great experience. The place was exactly as described and had a great view of the city (which was a nice surprise). Check in and out was easy. I would definitely recommend staying at Koray's place to a friend.

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.
Simon Koray and Paula have been excellent guests, everything was left perfect, and we kept in touch during their stay. Totally recommend!
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!
