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, Clock Tower 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. The neighborhood is eclectic and vibrant and once you step outside the Guest House your neighbors will be real New Yorker's, not tourists. Highly recommend if you are looking for a true New York experience with real New Yorkers! Dont take our word for it... Just read the reviews and see for yourself!

The building itself is very safe and secure with an on premise caretaker to deal with any issues should they arise. The suite is private with your own lock and key. A set of fresh bed linens and towels are provided. You have your own bathroom w/ jacuzzi and full size kitchen w/ fridge. The suite sleeps 6 comfortably (see below how the breakdown is). You can squeeze 8 if you don't mine sleeping like sardines!

Bedroom 2 has 2 twin (single) beds, dresser, closet and flat screen TV. This room sleeps 2.

We have stayed with 4 people a week in this apartment. This apartment is part of a double apartment house where rooms are let loose and this apartment. Ray is the host in the house. A good man of few words.
Do not expect too much luxury or not is the opposite. The double bedroom was fine. Shame about the town behind this room very messy but the only fresh air. Furthermore, the property-house, so no windows.
One bedroom with two single beds, of which one was very close to the AC went well.
I'm very glad we did not have to sleep. The (bed) beds in the room Upon it was bad enough. The kitchen was very sparse furnishings but the missing stuff (too few) were taken from another without grumbling kitchen, so some extra seats (standard 2?). Kitchen appliances were fine although the cooker / oven had its day. Ray has made everything beautiful in advance clean, and after our visit. Because we have not left directly from NY, he also wanted a great solution for our luggage. Wifi was there but not really "smooth" frequently we had to reset the modem and then ....
Distance to metro 5-10 minutes. I had just looked up the address on google earth (then saw the property there is something different) so we walked up to it.
Price-Quality for NY understanding in order. Although a working class neighborhood with name we have always felt ourselves safe.

We traveled five people and lived in the apartment, there was plenty of room, good kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Everything worked fine, Ray, who was the manager showed up and we got the keys. The area in the Bronx is OK, a little seedy, but nice people. Close to subway, inside Manhattan at 25.30 min. The orderly and good price, made us feel very happy

The apartment was clean. It's in the neighborhood of the subway, you are in about 15 minutes in the centre of Manhattan. The host was friendly. The only thing was that we hadn't internet in our apartment as what was written on the site, but we could use the internet on the second floor. There was a table with some chairs where you could sit.

SoBro... Walk 2 NYC!!!

Nous sommes partit 10 jour (du 7 au 17 octobre 2014) dans cet appartement confortable, nous avons passés un très bon séjour, le métro est à 5min (ligne 6) celui ci peut vous emmennez a peu près partout. Chambre bien équipé, hôte acceuillant. Seul petit bémol la propreté de la salle de bain un petit peu négligé par les autres colocataires, mais c'est une adresse que nous vous conseillons bon sejour a tous.

A Sexy Studio Apartment in New York

Das Studio war sauber und zweckmässig eingerichtet. Die Matraze ist in einen Matrazenschutz eingehüllt. Das habe ich auch in Hotels nur selten gesehen. Der Lärm von der Strasse hört man nur kaum. Die Subway ist nicht weit entfernt und auch ein Supermarkt ist in der Nähe. Ich würde jederzeit wieder buchen. Danke Greg.

Trendy and Pleasant Apartment

Das Zimmer, wie auch die Gemeinschaftsbäder und -küchen waren sehr sauber und aufgeräumt. Das Haus an sich ist straßenseitig gelegen, das Zimmer war aber trotzdem sehr ruhig, was prinzipiell für das gasamte Guesthouse gesagt werden kann, und sogar schon vorgekühlt als wir angekommen sind. Wir waren eine Stunde vor dem eigentlichen Check-In Zeitpunkt da, konnten das Zimmer allerdings trotzdem sofort beziehen und Ray war sogar so nett, mir meine (für 3 Wochen Urlaub dementsprechend voll gepackte) Tasche in den 2. Stock zu tragen. Obwohl alle Zimmer belegt waren, war es zu keinem Zeitpunkt laut.

Das Haus selbst ist mit einem Code gesichert, der einem bei Check-In gemeinsam mit dem WiFi Passwort gegeben wird. Es liegt mittig in 5-7 Minuten Fußgeh-Entfernung zwischen 2 U-Bahn Stationen, wovon eine als Express-Station geführt wird. Somit ist die Verbindung nach Manhattan durchgehend gesichert und die Züge verkehren relativ häufig.

Die South Bronx ist nicht direkt ein Standard Tourismusgebiet und man fällt recht schnell als Nicht-Einheimischer auf. Allerdings waren unsere Erfahrungen durchwegs positiv und, obwohl etwas einschüchternd zu Beginn, ist die Gegend sehr lebendig und multikulturell.

Ich ziehe einen Stern ab, weil sich Ray in den weiteren Tagen durch falsche (und recht laute) Anschuldigungen über Haare im Abfluss und diverses anderes Gezeter am Gang, sowie mit der Tatsache, dass er, wenn ich ihm eine Frage gestellt habe, er nur meinem (männlichen) Reisebegleiter die Antwort geben wollte, nicht direkt mit Ruhm bekleckert hat. Zum Checkout Zeitpunkt (10:30 ca.) war niemand vor Ort und wir waren nicht über das Prozedere in so einem Fall aufgeklärt worden. Wir erfuhren das wichtigste von einem anderen Paar, wodurch dann doch alles relativ problemlos ablief.

Zusammenfassend war unser Aufenthalt im Guesthouse sehr angenehm und absolut angemessen für den sehr, sehr günstigen Preis. Das Guesthouse wird definitiv weiterempfohlen :)

Cosy Apartment in South Bronx

The room was clean and there was enough space in the room for two nights. the subway is no far away and Ray was very friendly and helpful. Only the space around the toilet was a little bit too small and one of the curtain rods was not fixed in the wall. and one night a dog was barking very early in the morning from the neighborhood. But except these little things it was a good possibility to have a cheap bedroom not far away from manhattan for a nice stay in New York City.

A Private Studio 2 Explore NYC

Great place to stay in a good area (The apartment is beside a school and a park). Very close to everything you need. Walking distance to the metro. Gas station on the corner. The room was quiet and clean. We were held up by traffic on our way up, but the owners were nice enough to meet us late at night to make sure we got the room key. Would definitely stay again.
