Description
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, 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!

Breakdown:
Bedroom 1 has a queen size bed, dresser, closet, and flat screen TV. There is also access to the backyard through this room. This room can sleep 2 on the queen bed.

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

The Living Room has 2 full size futons. Can sleep an additional 2 people here.

As mentioned above. If you do not mind a tight squeeze you can sleep up to 8.

Thanks to Greg and Ray,
The place is fine and clean. The apartment was as on the pictures really big and also with a courtyard and a bbq.
The suburb is quiet and Manhattan is 30 to 45 minutes away by the metro which is just 5 minutes walk. With the metro card which is really affordable it's alright.
Good value !

Die Wohnung war relativ sauber.
Sperrlich, aber mit dem notwendigsten eingerichtet.
Das W-Lan war leider so gut wie gar nicht vorhanden, da es sich nicht direkt im Appartement befunden hat.
Im großen Schlafzimmer hat es kalt gezogen und durch die Tür zum Hinterhof raus gepfiffen.
Wenn man die Heizung eingeschaltet hat waren die Räume zu heiß und bei ausgeschalteter Heizung zu kalt.
Die Lage war gut, da in der nähe sich gleich eine U-Bahnstation befand mit der man direkt nach Manhattan fahren konnte.
Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist ok, man sollte jedoch nicht zu viel erwarten.
Der Vermieter war sehr kurz angebunden bei der Schlüsselübergabe, aber nett.

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.

A Sweet Studio to Explore NYC

The studio was basic, but practical.

However, the kitchen supplies were below standard. There was only one coffeecup, no tea towel etc. When we asked for these items (email), Greg responded very quickly, but he choose to let this be handled by his local caretaker. The suggestion was to get these items from the kitchen of another apartment, but there was also not enough.

When we approached the caretaker during the day, he was clearly not awake and send us away. So we asked Greg again, he said he would take care of it, but he never did.
In the end we bought our own cups and towels and took these home with us at the end of our stay.

Internet (repeater) was very flaky, it kept dropping out every day. I happen to be a 25+ years experienced network-engineer, so I could login and reset the repeater every day, but an average client would have been in dire straits.

Overall, the apartment could have been a bit cleaner. (floor, kitchen, towels ..)

The local Subway (line 6, 3rd avenue) is only a few minutes away, so Manhattan was easy to get to.

Local neighborhood was very alive, a nice mixture of Spanglish people and restaurants, shops, etc.

Trendy and Pleasant Apartment

Good stay near Manhattan. Room was big and clean. The whole house was nice and you had everything you needed including a kitchen. Ray was very helpful. Unfortunately the bed was located near the Air Condition which made it loud and cold at nights. But this was the best "cheap" accommodation in New York since long.
