Incredible Guesthouse: Mi Casa Tu Casa Guesthouse was mentioned in the NY Times as one of the best kept secrets of the Bronx (cityroom.blogs.nytimes/2008/05/12/bronx-hospitality-unnoticed-by-the-tourist-guides/?scp1&sqBronx%20hotels%20&%20torism&stcse). Walking distance to Yankee stadium and to the Bronx Arts Museum. Seven restaurants, 3 fast foods, Seven-Eleven (open 24 hrs), Bronx General Post Office, Pregones Theater and Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture as well as Hostos Community College are all within a 2 block radius. Nearest Motel on north side of Yankee stadium is $178 a night. Our prices are much less, making a NYC vacation affordable. Includes Direct TV and WiFi. Laundry service also available. Grand Central & Times Square 20 minutes away by Subway #4, #5, & #2 trains located 1 block away. Bottom line: closest commute to Manhattan from the Bronx. Each room has a Latin theme and the entire house is decorated with art from many artist that have stayed in our Guesthouse. Beautiful and relaxing backyard and Greenroom. World famous Tats Crew painted a Mural in the backyard that blends with a running fountain that is a must see. In the Fall of 2009 the Gateway Mall & Waterfront River Park opened two blocks West of Mi Casa - Tu Casa.

When we pulled up Julio met me at the front gate. His hello was so welcoming, and his hug was genuine. He really should be running for political office LOL. He showed us around the property which has many interesting things to see. We stayed in the Spain Room which definitely met my expectations. It is in a great location, close to many things. I would so go back. Good job it felt like home.

This place is great. The owner especially treats you with warmth and openness. The backyard seems to be a nice chill out place and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. We felt like home. the shower would have benefited of some cleaning but appart from that it was really clean. The place is close from Manhattan by subway and is fairly cheap compared to what we saw in New York. There is a kitchen with all the cooking ware but no breakfast included.
