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.

I 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 eclectic and vibrant and once you step outside the Guest House your neighbors will be 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 studio is private with your own lock and key. Fresh bed linens and towels are provided. You have your own bathroom and kitchenette with mini fridge. We have long term international students and tourists staying with us from all over the world. The studio has a queen size bed and is located on the 2nd Floor of a renovated Mott Haven Brownstone.

Wir hatten einen super Aufenthalt in Gregs Apartment Ray war sehr hilfsbereit und lies und sogar am letzten Tag noch etwas länger bleiben da unser Rückflug erst am Abend ging. Das Apartment selber war ruhig super sauber geräumig. Die Gegend ist das echte New York uns hat es sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns sicher gefühlt. Alles in allem kann ich das Apartment nur empfehlen und würde jederzeit wieder hingehen.

A very great studio, for an excellent price (far cheaper than NYC hotels). Very close to the metro station (less than 5 minutes walk), and about half an hour from Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall stop. Very quiet neighbourhood. Ray is here all the time, and always happy to help. Greg was very accomodating as he allowed me to stay a little bit later the day I left (my plane wasn't leaving before 20). The studio is clean, nice, very comfy, perfect for a short or long stay and far better than any hotel room that you'd pay a very expensive price (and you can't cook in hotel rooms). But as said in the ad, if you're not looking for a full-experience or if you're shy, it might be quite worrying as you're in the heart of New York and will meet real New Yorkers, a side that I really really enjoyed, 'cause people are so nice and welcoming there!! Loved it!! Definitely recommend it to people looking for the real American experience :-)

This place is a good place with a good price. It's about 5-10 min to nearest subway. Area is quiet but really classic NY so prepare to meet a lot of special people both on your way to the subway and on the subway :)
It was clean and good but a little bit cold. We were here in march and it was pretty cold and the window doesn't have any isolation so when it's windy outside you can feel it alot if you're close to the window. And the shower is a little bit weird but it has hot-water. Otherwise it's a good place :)

Das Studio war dank detaillierter Anreisebeschreibung vom Flughafen aus gut errichbar, war trotz Schneesturm wunderbar warm geheizt, die Übernahme und Abgabe völlig problemlos. Trotz Nähe zu grossen Autostrassen nachts absolut ruhig, da Aussicht auf Zwichengelände. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten innert 5 Minuten, Metro Nr. 6 in 8 Minuten erreichbar, ideal für Besichtigungen in Manhattan. Wer abends im Bett gern liest, braucht eine eigene Beleuchtung. Gasherd und Kühlschrank und TV praktisch. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.

Studio propre,calme et très bien situé!! A ce prix là on ne peut que revenir! Greg est disponible et efficace! Ray a été très accueillant et serviable (encore merci) Quartier du Bronx typique ce qui fait du bien pour découvrir "le vrai"New York et à coté de Manhattan (15-20min de Time Square) et Harlem (2 stations de métro!) Je le recommande!!

ottimo come posizione e come mini appartamento. Gestore disponibile e gentile.
Suggerirei di migliorare le modalità di comunicazione con gestore soprattutto per chi non conosce bene l'inglese ed il telefono diventa difficile da utilizzare.
OTTIMO. Da consigliare anche per soggiorni oltre la settimana

Le logement est parfaitement conforme à la description faite par Greg. La chambre que nous avons eu était même plus grande que celle présentée sur l'annonce, elle était bien chauffée et il y avait même une climatisation pour les séjours estivaux ! Seuls points négatifs : le bruit incessant de l'autoroute située en bas de la maison (alors pensez aux boules Quiès pour pouvoir dormir un minimum au calme surtout si votre chambre donne sur le devant de la maison comme la nôtre !) et la plomberie un peu capricieuse (peu de pression dans la douche et passé 20h00 l'eau était juste tiède...)
Le propriétaire, Greg, a toujours répondu très rapidement et précisément à nos mails et il a été arrangeant sur les horaires ce qui n'est pas négligeable si votre avion arrive ou repart tard ! Ray est présent dans la maison et est très disponible pour tout renseignement.
La maison est bien située (mis à part la proximité de l'autoroute !) : 1h30 par le air-train et le métro de JFK, la ligne de métro n°6 est à 5min à pied, elle traverse Manhattan de part en part et avec (ou sans changement d'ailleur) vous avez accès à tous les sites touristiques new-yorkais ! Le quartier est calme et nous a paru sûre (même lorsque nous sommes arrivés le premier soir avec nos bagages à 22h et qu'il faisait nuit noire), il y a des "restaurants" et quelques magasins d'alimentation à 5min à pied tout près de la station de métro.
Pour conclure, je ne mets que 4 étoiles sur 5 à cause des points négatifs cités plus haut, sinon ce logement à un rapport qualité/prix parfait et je le recommande vivement pour un séjour à New York à petit budget !
