The Space

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. This is not the Marriot or a central park west local, although we are very close. 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. Highly recommend if you are looking for a true New York experience! Dont take our word for it... Just read the reviews and see for yourself!

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??

***Free WiFi is included***

***International Students and tourists looking for long term stays of 30 days or longer are welcome to stay with us.***

***** Last minute reservations are our specialty***** If it shows open on the calendar then 99% chance is available.

Stays of less then 4 days are accepted on a case by case basis only if it fits into our schedule.

  • The room was a bit small, but clean. We also arrived with the airconditioner already turned on, so the room was nice and cool when we got there. There was also a minifridge which was nice. There's a full kitchen, which was great, though there are only two tables where you can eat – which causes a bit of a problem if there are others from other rooms eating there already.

    Ray was also a nice guy and really accommodating. We arrived late, but it wasn't a problem. He also went out of his way to allow us to place our belongings in another room while we visited the city on our last day.

    I would definitely recommend this place.

  • it's a really quiet neighbourhood that's pretty safe. My friend and i got home after dark and felt safe. (11pm)

  • Llegamos el día previsto y el dueño de casa fue muy amable y atento, nos facilitó algunas cosas que necesitábamos.
    El lugar esta ubicado en un lindo vecindario, sin embargo por las noches el metro nos quedaba como a 4 calles y la verdad es que la zona cercana al metro es un poco oscura y solitaria,

  • This is my second time stayin in SoBro (and I will return again). It's cheap, super clean, safe neighborhood, awesome street food and restaurants nearby, close to transportation, and one gets to see a "real" version of NYC away from midtown, tourist attractions, etc. (which can be fun, but isn't it fun to see a city in a well-rounded way?). I highly recommend this place.

  • We had a great stay here for four nights. The room was huge and there were two shared kitchens and two shared bathrooms which were all kept very clean. The kitchen had full cooking facilities. We were a 5minute walk away from the Subway station which easily connected with Manhattan and was affordable at $2.25 per single ride or $29 a week. You can also easily wak over the Willis Bridge to Manhattan and then catch the subway further down from there. The area was safer than you would expect, although I wouldn't advise female travellers to walk alone at night time but I would advise this in any city. Don't let the title of Bronx put you off, it is a great place to stay. Ray was very friendly and extremely helpful. Would stay again.

  • Beautiful, clean room and excellent, well equiped (toaster, stove, coffee maker, pans, microwave etc.) kitchen facilities and bright breakfast place. Fridge in room - great! Practical for subway, only 20 min to mid-town and tourist-attractions and even returning late in the evening felt safe.

  • I had an excellent stay - the place was very clean, had all the things in the kitchen I needed, and a free water cooler. I would stay here again!

  • Very nice house located on the border of the Bronx but absolutely safe. Policemen are around and you feel very secured. Furthermore, the locals are very nice. The house has all equipment that you can dream of and their owner are very helpful.
    Great experience !

  • I had to find a room with practically no time and these guys were quick to respond and help me with everything I needed. The place was clean, beds were crazy comfortable and once you figure out where you are, very easy to find. I would definitely stay here again.
