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, Wish 37 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. The Center of Manhattan is 25 Minutes away. 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. This may be enticing to some but scary to others. Highly recommend if you are looking for a true New York experience with real New Yorkers!

The building itself is very safe and secure. Ray lives on premise and is able to 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 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.

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.

Die Unterkunft war alles in allem in Ordnung.

-es hätte sauberer sein können
-W-Lan war schlecht(kam und ging)

+Lage hat uns super gepasst, in wenigen Minuten war man an der Subway-Station Brook Av.(Linie 6) mit der man direkt nach Manhattan oder zur Brooklyn Bridge fahren konnte. Zum Flughafen JFK dauert es fast zwei Stunden.

Es gibt ein bequemes Bett und ein Klappsofa. Im März war es relativ kühl aber es wurde gut geheizt. Es gab immer heißes Wasser. In der Küche gab es einen Ofen, Mikrowelle und einen Kühlschrank.

Das Studio ist zwar in der Bronx, sieht vielleicht nicht aus wie in Manhattan und man trifft auch keine Touristen, aber wenn man offen und höflich ist sind die Menschen sehr entgegenkommend. Man braucht auch keine Angst haben wenn man spät nachts nachhause kommt.

I enjoyed my stay as a guest of Ray and Greg. The place was a very good choice. Greg always got right away in touch with me and made me feel comfortable, even when I had a flight delay. Directions from airport were given detailed, so you couldn't go wrong. Ray has been a great host. He took care, was always helpful, and nice. I felt very comfortable. The apartment was clean, so was the entire house and there was all you need, even in the kitchen. Subway and infrastructure were walking distance. The motorway in front of the house was a bit noisy, but that's the only complain. Thanks a lot to Ray and Greg! I recommend!

très bon souvenir

April 2014

Le studio correspond à la description, l'emplacement est parfait pas loin du métro, j'ai néanmoins quelques critiques à faire. La propreté est rudimentaire, poubelle non vidée, les draps n'étaient franchement pas propres, j'ai été obligé d'acheter des draps ainsi que des taies d'oreillers. Le premier soir, j'ai utilisé un thee-shirt en guise de taie d'oreiller et j'ai dormi avec mes vêtements. Il faut prévoir également des boules quiès, cette maison est située le long d'une autoroute, par conséquent, c'est très bruyant. Nous avons eu une chambre au rez-de-chaussée et très mal isolée. Je n'ai pas vu Greg, j'ai eu affaire à Ray, qui n'a hélas rien d''accueillant. Quand je suis arrivé, j'ai tendu ma main pour le saluer, sans répondre à mon bonjour ni tendre la main pour me saluer, il a vociféré: What is your name! C'est assez impressionnant étant donné son look d'ancien junkie. Je ne l'ai pas revu de la semaine, la veille de mon départ, dans la nuit, il y a eu un boucan terrible, impossible de dormir. Le lendemain matin, je suis allé voir Ray, pour lui demander si je pouvais laisser mes bagages jusqu'à 16 h, il a répondu rapidement sans même descendre: do what you want !, c'est appréciable. Au moment de partir j'ai appelé Ray pour lui remettre les clefs, il est descendu rapidement et visiblement j'ai dû le déranger. Mon ami était à ce moment-là aux toilettes, et Ray était contrarié et m'a hurlé dessus en me disant : "pourquoi vous m'avez appelé puisque vous n'êtes pas prêts ?" Il est remonté rapidement en hurlant: vous n'avez qu'à claquer la porte en partant!. Cet hébergement est parfait pour des gens un peu "roots" et à petit budget.

Ray était très gentil et serviable. Merci pour l'accueil. Le seul bémol était le bruit de la route a proximité pour ceux que cela peut gêner. Chambre nickel.

The apartment is very clean and well decorated. The room with a large bed and a sofa is really wide. Not long supplied the kitchen although there is a microwave and a refrigerator, but not very suitable for certain to great for breakfast. The metro station is a 5 minute walk. Very comfortable and above all it is on line 6 which leads directly and in 15 minutes to midtown Manhattan. Clearly you do a little 'commuters. The neighborhood is virtually no tourists. It is not the Bronx film, however, at least for Italians, it remains a neighborhood "adventurous". We were ok and quality / price ratio right.

Our visit was the most chaotic one ever. We arrived way too early (they let us put our luggage in one of the rooms even though it wasn't even ready) and already gave us keys and everything. The first thought when coming into the house was: this is the cleanest place I have ever seen! They're taking care of everything to have you enjoy the stay. On the second night our bag got stolen with the keys in there. We came home in the middle of the night, really didn't know what to do. Luckily we got the spare keys (even though we had to wake them up in the middle of the night). On Sunday we didn't know what to do with the luggage since check-out was at 11am but they let us leave our luggage in one of the rooms until the evening. Again thank you so much for all the trouble and we really enjoyed our stay despite the minor lay-backs ;)

The studio in the Bronx is very clean. But the house is right on the highway, so it is very noisy day and night. But it is to Manhattan on the subway not far. The area is also quite nice except the street. Recommended for a short stay!
