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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place to stay in a really nice neighborhood (good grilled fish in mexican restaurant). Clean, fresh...

    June 2014
  • First of all we have to say it was a great time staying there.
    All our questions were replied immediately. The accomodation was clean and we had everything we needed.
    The metro was within a 5 min walk and the area was save. It was more than worth the money we spent and we would stay there again.

  • The Pictures and describtion show exactly how it was. It was really clean and some train stations were close.
    It is in the South Bronx but we - two girls - had no problems with going out and coming back late.
    The mattress is really soft but enough for a few days.

    It was nice to stay here and I would come again :)

  • Our stay at the sobro guest house was great. Our room was nice and spacious in a clean and secure establishment, with excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. It's also located close to a lot of local amenities and a subway station, which takes you to manhattan and the rest of New York City. Ray lives in the guest house and is there if you need him for anything. He works hard keeping the place clean and tidy, thanks Ray! Highly recommended :)

  • I Stayed at the SoBro Guesthouse while doing a solo trip in April. I stayed for 5 nights. I really wanted to get the best New York experience, and I definitely got it. This place is pretty handy if your after somewhere comfortable with all your amenities for a very low price. This place was clean and very comfortable. Ray was nice enough to let me stay a little bit longer than check out, because my flight out of JFK wasn't till 3 pm. The subway is right around the corner and the neighbourhood was pretty cool. It's very multicultural and a lot of the food and things, I found were cheaper than in Manhattan. Would definitely stay here again.
