Description

This is the SoBro Guest House Located in the South Bronx aka SoBro, New York, a hustling & bustling trendy and hip neighborhood. Just search SoBro Bronx, NY and you will see what the area has to offer. We are walking distance (1 Block) to the Antique District which boasts an assortment of Cafes, Lounges, Bars, Art Galleries and Antique shops. Alexander's Bar on Alexander Ave, The Piano Factory, Bruckner Bar and Grill, DJ EMBE just to name a few.

You can walk to Manhattan over the Willis Ave Bridge which is located on the corner. Or jump on the # 6 Train and you are only one stop away from the City of NY! The # 6 train is located approximately 4 blocks away or a 5 minute walk. Yankee Stadium is about a half hour walk or 10 minute train ride. And if you don't feel like going to NYC you have lots of shopping right here in the neighborhood. The Guest House is easily accessible from JFK, Newark, and La Guardia Airports via the Metro so you do not have to waste money on taking a taxi.

We would advise that only the adventurous and more open minded stay here. We are ideally located very close to Manhattan. Literally a 5 minute walk over the Willis Avenue Bridge and only 1 stop away via the underground. The neighborhood is considered very safe. It is jumping and unbelievably vibrant and once you step outside the Guest House you will be living amongst real New Yorker's, not tourists. This may be enticing to some but scary to others, so take it for what its worth.

The building itself is very safe and secure. Ray lives on premise and can deal with any issues should they arise. The room is private with your own lock and key. Fresh bed linens and towels are provided. Share 2 full baths and basic cooking facilities with the other guests. We have long term international students and tourists staying with us from all over the world. The room has a full size bed and is located on the 3rd Floor of a renovated Mott Haven Brownstone. There is a mini-fridge and 32" Plasma TV located inside the room. But your in New York... how much time do you plan to spend inside??

8 Very good

We stay here for 7 nights, and it was really comfortable and pleasant stay. House is 5 min walk to subway, then maybe 30 minutes to downtown Manhattan, so the location is not the best, but the comfort which we have there was a compensation. Nice room with fridge, shared kitchen and bathroom, everything was clean all the time. I can only recommend this place.

My parents stayed here in Oct. Every thing was great! Very good location, near metro & easy transportation. The place is clean & comfortable. Not forget to say that the bed is perfect too.
Most importantly, Greg is so kind & has a very respectful attitude. They helped my parents a lot. We are so happy to rent this place & wish to stay there again.
Thank you.

Great place to stay for the price! Clean and comfortable bedroom & bath, very helpful host. We traveled as a couple and walked through the neighborhood at night. No issues whatsoever, but definitely take your precautions. The subway is not too far from the house, which is a plus. Recommended! Tip: make sure you're in the right lane (if going to Manhattan) before using your metrocard, we had to pay twice for our mistake.

We were very happy with our stay at the Sobro guest house.
We agree that the neighbourhood definately is not for the nervous, as it is a bit rough. We arrived at 0130am, and were a little uncomfortable as the neighborhood is a bit shady. Although there is a police station nearby and we were almost watched/escorted all the way to the guesthouse by a police car which made us feel very safe.
As we got used to the neighborhood and got to know it we found it charming and a good contrast to Manhattan. It was great to experience how the average New Yorker lives besides the expensive Manhattan. Although we would recommend people not to walk around the neighborhood past midnight, for your own feeling of security.
Our room was nice, although small and with a small bed (we would call it a 1,5 person bed, and it was a bit short for my boyfriend who is 1,90m. tall). We had a fridge, a flatscreen tv and airconditioning, which was great. Although there was no airconditioning in the common area, which would have been great as it was extremely hot while we were in NYC and we started sweating already when in the kitchen or bathroom. We stayed in the guesthouse for a week and only got one bathtowel each, which was kind of nasty after 3-4 days as we took showers everyday because of the heat. Also half of the days only one of the bathrooms had toilet paper and we were a lot who shared those bathrooms, which was a downside as only one bathroom could be used. All in all it was great value for the price, and it was easy to get to Manhattan.

Accommodation clean and comfortable, quiet at night to sleep, and the metro is just a few minutes walk. Well!

I had a great stay at this Guest House! The facilities are excellent - better than expected. Everything was very clean. Contrary to many prejudices (even by New Yorkers), one could feel safe in the neighborhood. For more anxious people, but this is perhaps not the most pleasant place. However, I really recommend it, in terms of price / performance this property is unbeatable.
