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 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.

The apartment was in a nice area, even it is the Bronx, the subway was 5 min walk away, so it was easy to get to Manhattan.
The very late (3am) check-in was easy and without problems.
The whole apartment looked a little unfinished, because the price was low, the rooms were appropriate clean.
The apartment just has 2 windows for 5 rooms, so without lights it is dark.
The main problem was that during the first night it rained and water started to drip trough the ceiling in on room onto the bed. After we talked to the housekeeper we got told that they know this problem and can't fix it, we should just change the sheets on the bed. The whole room was wet. He was rude and disinterested.
In other rooms there were water spots at the ceiling too, so this is a known problem.

All in all we don't recommend to stay here, even if the price is nice and near to Manhattan!

Hello from Denmark.
The apartment has no windows in most rooms, so that is very dark in the apartment.
Much noise from the neighbor who played music three days in a row, day and nigt.
there can not be cleaned, there is no rags and vakumclearner, or anything else to do something with.
Only 4 good beds, the sofa bed is very poor.
will choose to pay a little more for an apartment next time and lives in Manhattan.
Do not expect much, you get what you pay for.

it was a great studio to stay in. Greg was a great host. The neighborhood felt good and all the stores were nearby. However I ordered something online from amazon and it did not reach my location although amazon said they delivered it to my mailbox. I guess it was stolen. So please do not order online to this address.

It was a very good experience. The appartment was confortable and nice (ok, not a luxury appartment, but has got all you need) and both the owner and the guy living in the accomodation site was always very available and helpfulf. The area is quiet and very close to the subway, one of the main connecting to the centre of NY. Not sure that Jacuzzi as advertised works (but actually didn't try). I will definitely book again should I need another trip to NY.

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 !

The apartment was relatively clean.
Sparsely furnished, but with the most necessary.
The Wi-Fi was unfortunately as good as non-existent, since it has not been right in the apartment.
The master bedroom has cold-drawn and whistled through the door to the back yard out.
If you have turned on the heater were the rooms too hot and too cold when heating is switched off.
The location was good because near there was equal to an underground station with which you could go directly to Manhattan.
The value for money is ok, but you should not expect too much.
The landlord was very curt when handing over the keys, but nice.

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.
