This loft apartment in the SoHo/Nolita epicenter is the perfect location for shopping, dining, and accessing the rest of NYC. I'm a native New Yorker and will be available to give recommendations for where to go, no matter your budget or interests!

The space

This is a fully-furnished but minimalist-looking loft space in a converted textile factory. I've retained the industrial character of the original space while providing the comforts you're used to at home--leather couch, comfortable bed, flatscreen with satellite, Wi-Fi. And unlike other buildings, the apartment has its own hot-water boiler, so you're not going to run out of hot water in the shower, no matter when you want to use it.

The space can sleep 4 people; there is one full-size bed, and I also have a full-size, full-height air mattress I will set up if your party is more than 2. Setting up the air mattress makes the bedroom a bit tight, but it can be moved into the other room if you prefer.

Guest access

You have full access to everything in the apartment.

Use our enormous Map Wall to plan your day's itinerary. The apartment is dead-center between SoHo, Nolita and Chinatown, so you can find cool stuff in every direction. I've covered the map in dry-erase coating, so I can mark whatever you need to find--ATMs, subway stations, good chow spots, Citibike stations, public bathrooms with no line, et cetera. Or you can mark it up yourself to plan routes and destinations of your own. Even if you have a bad sense of direction, I can provide clear directions to ensure you never get lost--and I'm always just a phone call or a knock away.

Leather couch and easy chair, for when you want to plop down in front of the flatscreen and watch satellite TV.

Full-size bed in the bedroom, and for a second bed we've got a full-size, full-height airbed I can set up for you.

The kitchen has your standard microwave, burners, coffeemaker, electric kettle for you tea-drinkers, and of course a full-sized refrigerator; but I doubt you'll be cooking once you see the amazing range of takeout, delivery and dine-in options the neighborhood has to offer!

The dining table is expandable and will seat 4-8 people.

You control the temperature, in case you're one of those folks that gets hot or cold easily; the thermostat is right on the wall, so you're not at the mercy of someone else's temperature choices. Crank up the heat, or the A/C, to wherever you like it.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is all yours and fully private; I stay out of your way to give you privacy, but I'm immediately available (in another unit in the building) if you need anything. When you want recommendations, advice or suggestions on anything at all, just drop me a line and I'm there for you. Otherwise, I don't stick my head in unless I'm asked for.

Other things to note

Whenever I travel, I like to know where I'm going to eat and drink! If you're looking for cheap eats, in the same building as the apartment is a Thai restaurant and the last NYC-style diner-coffee shop in the area. If you want cappuccino or fancier coffee in the mornings, there's a high-end coffee shop right next door, plus there are nearby Starbucks in three directions. For those with more refined taste, right across the street is a French restaurant and a Chilean wine shop.

There's a killer Scotch bar just one block east; a fantastic brunch spot one block north; the world's cheapest Chinese food buffet, one block south. Or start your morning with a cafe au lait and croissant at Balthazar, just two blocks north.

Need authentic-style NYC pizza? Little Italy starts one block away. (Ask me where to go so you don't get suckered by the fake, overpriced stuff.)

As for shopping, Broadway and SoHo's reputations speak for themselves--you can find everything under the sun just blocks from the apartment, so you can keep dropping stuff off and using the bathroom if you're on a spree. The clothing and shoe stores alone would take up more space than I can fit here.

If you need unique souvenirs that can't be found back home, ask me and I'll help you find shops that have the perfect gifts.

One last thing I need to be clear about--the last photo you see up above, the Beaux Arts building exterior, is the Police Department from 1909 (now converted to luxury condos). That is *not* this building, that is the building across the street! That building is the view that you see outside the windows of this apartment--and it's gorgeous.

Please treat the apartment the same way you'd treat your own house! No muddy boots up on the leather couch, no parties, and please don't superglue my furniture to the stamped-tin 11-foot ceilings. (You see what I did there?) Also there's no smoking or drugs allowed, and you'll have to leave Fido and Fifi at home. Thanks for your consideration!

This is a great location for anyone travelling to New York. Close to the subway to get you to wherever you want to be in NYC but also walkable to all the tourist spots. Nick was a great host, gave us some great recommendations so where to eat, drink and visit. Would highly recommend staying at this apartment, it was everything we wanted and more.

Apartment was as on photos, Nicholas was a great host and very helpful at check in. The apartment was clean and in a great location. Near some lovely local restaurants and very walkable to the main attractions (we like walking in cities anyway!). We would stay again.

An amazing apartment, right in the middle of one of the best areas of New York. Nicholas was a fantastic host.

Our view of the apartment was mixed. The positives - great location, everything you need with one exception, great host, price reasonable and a real NY feel to it. The negatives - initial impression of entrance to the apartment poor - apartment is above a Thai cafe and the entrance hall smelt most of the time, feels like you are entering a security wing with three locks to go through before you enter the apartment (to be fair this is probably the norm in NY so cannot be too critical) but most of the time the door to the street was wide open and the door at top of the steep stairs was blocked open by a bulldog clip. Overall we would return and it was only our initial impression of the entrance that put us off to start with.

Response from Nicholas:
To clarify for future potential guests: - The apartment is not "above a Thai cafe." It is above a store that sells pipe fixtures, which you can clearly see if you look the building up on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps. There is a Thai restaurant located within the same building. - There are indeed three locks: The front door to the building, a security door, and the actual lock to the apartments. This is not unusual for New York City. - During Daren's stay, the city was performing local plumbing repairs, hence "the door to the street was wide open and the door at top of the steep stairs was blocked open by a bulldog clip" as workers needed to get in and out. Furthermore, the temporary need to access the plumbing were why "the entrance hall smelt." I am very sorry Daren and his wife found these conditions objectionable, and had they alerted me that these things disturbed them, I certainly would have taken swift steps to do what I could to ensure their comfort! Unfortunately this review is the first I'd heard of it. I can assure future potential guests that the circumstances Daren and his wife encountered were not normal; if there is any doubt, please read through the other 70 reviews for my apartment, and you'll notice that all of the issues Daren cites are not mentioned even once.

Nicolas was a very nice and curtious host! He made himself available for any questions we had and took us through some 'key' places to visit locally when we arrived! The apartment was clean and what we expected (how it looked in the pics). The location was very good and we had no trouble getting around there are loads of subway stations a short walk away and getting uptown was no problem. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting New York for all the reasons I mention above......

This was a great apartment and just as advertised. It was in a perfect location for us. Walking distance to Staten Island Ferry and 9/11 memorial and a few subway stops to Times Sq/5th Av. The area around the apartment is great - really eclectic and interesting and great shops and restaurants too. Nick is the perfect host and was there to meet us. He gave us all the info we needed. Would thoroughly recommend.

Nick was a fantastic host. Helpful from the moment we booked until the moment we left. The apartment is in such a great location with easy access to everything. I really can't recommend the area enough, so much more laid back than being stuck in the hustle and bustle of time square. We were so happy with our choice of apartment. Absolute no negatives at all.
