The Space

****Please note that this is a small private room with 1 single size bed. We give our guests the option to book this room for 2 guests if they do not mind sleeping 2 in a single bed.****

***Minimum 7 night stay for New Years Eve***

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 twin single size bed and is located on the 2nd 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 is a small room with twin (single) size bed. We allow our guests the option to book for 2 people if desired.

***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.

  • This was my first trip to the US. This flat is located in good region near the MTA. So, you can get to Manhattan in 20 minutes. The room was exactly as at the picture. It was clean and safe. There was a bed, a TV at the wall and small fridge by the bed. The was only two negative moments:
    1. My ice cream that I've bought in that fridge has melted.
    2. this room is enough noisy. (because of lots of cars on the street).
    Everything else was great. Thank to the owners of this room!

  • Sobro guesthouse is one of the best guesthouse in NYC I believe, the place including bedroom, bathroom and common area are so nice and clean accept its a little too small for two people it stay there, but we spend more of our time in the city so having a tiny room is not a problem. The place is very close to the subway called Brook av and it took us about 20 mins to downtown in Manhattan. Sobro guesthouse is located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Sobro guesthouse is one of the best choice if you wanna come to NYC for vacation and you haven't got a place to stay.

  • This place is a great find! Excellent deal for the price. My main concern with budget accommodation is cleanliness, and I was very pleased with how clean this place was. You can tell they have recently renovated/remodeled. Shared bathroom was clean and spacious, same with the shared kitchen area. Mott Haven may not the most attractive neighborhood in the city, but I felt safe. Found parking easily on the street close to the building. Not too long of a walk to the subway. Ray was very nice and was available to help. WiFi signal was good. Will definitely stay there again.

  • Staying in the SoBro was just great! The room was great and exactly as the pictures show, if you just want a place to sleep and store your stuff (which is what all who are visiting NYC should do), SoBro is a great place to stay. Ray was extremely friendly, and it was also extremely helpful on conditions that Sandy had left NYC and understand that I had to change some of my dates booked (I doubt I would have the same treatment if I had booked one hotel). They got me a customer for life, and whenever someone asks me where to stay in NYC, there's no doubt, Sobro is the place that I will point out.

  • I've had a very pleasant stay in SoBro :) It is really convenient and safe to move throughout the city from this location. The house is indeed great, clean, cool... Thanks guys for this nice airbnb experience.

  • Very cheap for a room quite close to manhattan, about 20-30 min by metro to mid manhattan. The room is small but adequate for both of us as we only need the place to sleep and freshen up. The bathroom is big and clean, that we use exclusively for ourself even though it is meant to be shared as there are other 2 bathrooms upstairs and other room in our floor is ensuite. The place is clean, the kitchen is complete, the communication was great, air condition work well though a bit noisy, tv and minibar in the room working too. Check in and check out was quick. Love it.
