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??

Die Unterkunft macht ihrem Namen "The real deal" alle Ehre. Das gemütliche Zimmer, das Bad und die Gemeinschaftsküche waren sauber. WLAN und TV waren uneingeschränkt nutzbar. Wir hatten bei uns im Zimmer zusätzlich einen eigenen Kühlschrank, der an warmen Tagen für gekühlte Getränke gesorgt hat.
Ray ist ein netter Gastgeber, der stets hilfsbereit zur Seite stand.
Das Sobro Guesthouse ist mit der Subway (Linie 6) sehr gut zu erreichen. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit gelangt man nach downtown Manhattan. Außerdem sind in der näheren Umgebung einige Möglichkeiten essen zu gehen oder Lebensmittel einzukaufen. Die Umgebung ist geprägt vom puertorikanischen Flair und ist entgegen des schlechten Rufs auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert. Meine Freundin und ich haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder bei Ray "einziehen"!!!

Hello, the room was very clean and comfortable, as the kitchen area. The bathroom / toilet was shared by three couples, which was not always practical. But Greg was always available and helped us in our efforts. This is a good place with good value for money.

I had a good experience at this place. The host was helpful during my stay and everything was fine. Definitely a place worth its use.

great place to stay in the lively bronx, the road outside is a little noisy, but nothing that a pair of travel ear plugs can't fix. The house itself is quiet, clean and cumfortable. and the train station in a 5 min walk, this gets you into Manhatten, if you get an unlimited weekly metro card it works out nice and cheap. i have no complaints about my stay in this house, 5 stars.

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.
