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??

This was a good place to stay. Nice place, clean and centrally located. But the bad outweighs the good. First of all, the name of the person on the profile was Greg who was texting me back and forth and directed me to speak to Ryan when I get to NYC. When I booked the room the contact detail information was Greg's name and the phone number. When I finally arrived to the place, Ryan gave me the keys. And upon giving me the key he interrogated me about my profile picture insinuating that I somehow deceived him from my profile picture with me and my wife. I did not understand why he felt the need to ask me a series of questions regarding my profile picture with me and my wife which was a legit up to date picture. He told me I had to check out at 11am which is not normal given my experience with alternative accommodation site. The host generally ask me what time do I need to check based on what they can do and what I can do this is a not the "RITZ CARLTON OR HILTON HOTEL" so why act like it? So the whole initial experience made me uncomfortable. I randomly agreed upon the 11am check out time beuase I didnt think about it this was due to the fact that I was generally tired from my trip. The next day I checked my train and it was leaving at 7pm so I texted the ONLY number that was given to me in the wimdu information which was Greg's and Greg said it was fine to talk to Ryan about it. I have traveled to many places in the USA and internationally I used windu a lot and I spoke with other occupants in the house they felt that I was profiled because they were not given an 11am check out time. The next day I was aggressively confronted by Ryan who i quote "YOU DIDNT LEAVE YET" he said I was supposed to leave at 11am mind you I paid my money to stay here and I was treated like a burden or thrash even though I paid!. I was maltreated due to fact that I was black man coming alone without my wife he thought I was going to do damage to his property or even more steal at the property. I was very shocked and offended because he is another person of color who is hispanic/latino. And am sure he wont like to be maltreated that way because of who he is. When I was asking other occupants about there checkout time they where very irate and vowed not to stay there again. And I advised people not stay at this place because Ryan was rude and nasty but Greg was nice but he was not there but it was Ryan that was there all the time. The profile information is very vague and unorganized contact system. The profile is not very clear of who is who. Overall, my stay was not pleasant because I think I was generally profiled by Ryan. This is not the first time I have traveled to NYC using alternative accommodation. I work hard for my money and I am a educated professional and I prefer to save money when I travel and experience the local side of the city. I am very familiar with online accommodation alternative sites. I use airbnb but I decided to use wimdu for the first time. This by far has been my worst experience on alternative accomodation site stay at your own caution.

The hotel lives up to its name "The Real Deal" honor. The cozy rooms, the bathroom and the shared kitchen were clean. Wi-Fi and TV were used without restrictions. We had with us in the room in addition its own refrigerator, which has caused on warm days for chilled drinks.
Ray is a nice host, the always helpful stand aside.
The sobro Guesthouse is very easy to reach with the subway (line 6). Within a short time you get to downtown Manhattan. Also in the vicinity are some ways to eat or buy food. The area is characterized by the Puerto Rican flair and is contrary to the bad reputation definitely worth a visit. My girlfriend and I have felt very comfortable and would not hesitate to "move" with Ray !!!

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.

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.

I spent a weekend in New York in this apartment. The bed is very comfortable attention to wake accidents. Greg is super cool and the apartment is close to the metro station and Manhattan.

8 Very good
Cosy Apartment in South Bronx

Positive: to find good, clean apartment, kitchen utensils for 2 available, quiet (our room was at the back, but front facing is a small river.), House for guests only, convenient location to the subway, shopping available, TV;
Negatives: bathroom or toilet seat area quite small (and I'm not very big, all over 1.80 have fun with it ;-)); much garbage in every respect on the streets, this is really the poorest part of the Bronx, so we (2 women individually tested trip) evening but sooner rather were in the apartment again, but everyone needs to know yourself;
Conclusion: Overall, however, a great value for money for NY and even an authentic look behind the facade plastered Manhattan
