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. 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. 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 studio is private with your own lock and key.

We had a lot of fun and we loved the place. It´s very close to Manhattan and we had plenty of latin food nearby to chose from. Ray was very helpful and always nice. We´ll consider the place again if we return. Thanks! Best regards!
bon séjour, proche du métro.l hôte reste dispo et habite juste au dessus. le studio assez propre mais assez brouillant. cela vaut son prix
Bottom line is good value for the money. Rooms and facilities were OK; kitchen and bathrooms were fine, though a bit worn down. A lot of noise from the street - don't forget ear plugs! Located 2 blocks from subway but a long ride to Manhattan. Area seemed safe even during evening but also as described very authentiv. This is NOT 5th Ave ;-)
Everything around the arrangement was fine and Ray was helpful and accomodating. Met him several times during the stay as he lives in the building.
O apartamento é exatamente como mostram as fotos, não tive nenhum problema durante os 7 dias que estive hospedada lá. A distância até a estação de metro é uma caminhada de 8 minutos. O metro leva 10 minutos até o Central Park, 20 minutos até a Grand Central Station e 35 até a ponte do Brooklyn. A vizinhança é composta em sua maioria por imigrantes latinos. Tem um mercado próximo e algumas lojas de conveniências. Para quem procura hospedagem barata em New York, é uma boa opção.
Good value for low budget.Clean and nearby subway.
A bit to noisy at night. Altogether a good deal.
Very nice studio flat, with a kitchenette, fridge, microwave, tv, internet, AC and a bathroom. All perfect! The area is a bit dodgy, especially scary at night, even a policeman told me & husband not to walk around after 9pm in this area. Subway no6 is very close and it can take you to all main attractions. Very nice and helpful guys :)
My friend and I had a good stay at this place. The room is excellent and a couple blocks from the subway. As mentioned by others, the surrounding area may be daunting to some guests. The actual neighbourhood is a little messy, but we encountered no trouble during our stay, and the building containing the room is very secure. The hosts are willing to help out guests at any time, though they are best contacted by phone. Thanks for a good stay!
The room and the common areas was clean and looked new. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming.
We would stay here again.
We stayed at this studio in July 2013 during our vacation in NYC. The room is super nice! It has everything you need for a great stay. The apt is also conveniently located so you can either walk to Manhattan which is right across the bridge or take the subway that will take you everywhere you need. Ray was very helpful and nice host, he even provided us with clearest directions of getting to the place from the airport, so we didn't have any problems even so we're from Russia and have never been in NY before. I would highly recommend this apt for those who want to explore NYC without paying a fortune.
It was a great place to stay in. Very clean. MRG were very accommodating since we got there much earlier than we expected. Ray cleaned up the place very well and very quickly.
Its a little bit away from Manhattan, so getting back after a late night was a bit difficult, but the subway station is really close
Thank you, guys!
