I was introduced to the Bronx Guesthouse by my sister, who had stayed there on several previous occasions. My expectations were exceeded. The home, fairly nondescript from the outside, had beautifully decorated rooms. Though there is a shared bath, we had no trouble accessing it when needed, and it was always clean and tidy. There is a nice kitchen area stocked with breakfast goods and snacks. The owner, Denisey, is very helpful, a great cook, and such a nice person. She introduced us to area shops and helped us navigate the trains to the city. She is also an animal lover, so she won my heart with that. It's a very comfortable place to stay, and one I'd stay at again.

The owner obviously takes wonderful care of the property and was a complete delight. It is the personal feel that makes this place special, warm, and inviting. This is the best place I have ever stayed at in New York. It is only a seventeen minute Metro ride to Grand Central. Very convenient location. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a charming and clean place to stay.

Warm, Cozy, Friendly and Welcoming. My wife and I had a great 7 day stay. It was a breath of fresh air from hotel life. We really enjoyed our conversations with the owner and other guest. Very pleasant experience! We look forward to our next stay. Steve and Lorraine North Carolina

I started feeling homesick as I took the train through the Bronx on day one of my trip. But when I walked into the Bronx Guesthouse I felt like I had entered into a new world. The bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and other guest areas were very comfy and cozy. The innkeepers were friendly and super easy to talk to AND they’re excellent cooks. I really felt like I was at home. Thanks again, can't wait till my next visit.

I recently enjoyed a pleasant stay at Bronx Guesthouse. The room was tidy and very comfortable, and breakfast items included fresh fruit. After a hectic business day in Manhattan it was great to come back to such a charming place.

My experience at the Bronx Guesthouse was truly wonderful. Even though I arrived quite late, Denisey was welcoming and immediately made me feel right at home. There were freshly baked croissants in the morning & an assortment of cereals to choose from. All of the rooms are so nicely decorated & clearly special to Denisey & her guests. The location is also great, about three blocks from the train station and I enjoyed the neighborhood's culture. I will be staying there again in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at BGH. It was like visiting one of your favorite Aunts, Chef Denisey made us feel welcome and at home. I was surprised and pleased that we could have our windows open and enjoy a breeze of fresh air circling through the house. The upstairs where we stayed had a kitchenette/dining room down the hall. As you know it can be very expensive in the city to eat out all the time. She introduced us to the Fairway open market grocery store. She is a wonderful cook who was willing to share some of her recipes with us.

I found my Home far from Home, thank you so so so much Denise! I spent a beautiful month in Bronx Guest House, a piece of Heaven in the big busy Apple! I have got a generous rich breakfast with all kind of drinks and cereals and fruits and i also had the chance to eat a wonderful breakfast cooked from Denise (the owner) in person wich was awsome! Besides that i found any kind of help from the owner wich is always ready to give you advices about where to go and what to do in NY and always at your disposal for any kind of information or request. She's amazingly kind and friendly. Hospitality and confort in a warm quite atmosphere is absolutely possible in the Bronx thanx to you Denise!

Denise went out of her way to get special food for me and make sure I had everything I needed for my interview (like an ironing board and a car service to get there on time). The room was very comfortable, and this B&B is the greenest one I've seen, with rain water barrels, a garden, and composting going on! If you want to feel at home, stay here. :)

I was not sure what I was getting into. I thought in the worse scenario, I would move out the next day and get a refund. My wife and I got there and it was surprisingly nice and well maintained. And the owner was very nice.

When i said to my family in France that i would stay in the Bronx, they called me a fool (i'm 52). But this place makes you forget where you are and i really encourage you to come around and have discussions with Denise on organic gardening (yes you're still in the Bronx!). As i said to her : à bientôt avec mon épouse et continuez, ce sont les gens comme vous qui ferez changer les esprits.

This was my first time staying at a B&B, and this place totally exceeded all of my expectations... The rooms were clean and cozy, the area was quiet, at the same time it only takes a couple of minutes to get to the subway or bus. So, all in all I had a wonderful and blessed stay. Even when I got sick, Denise and Edna went out of their way, got me some of my favorite tea and when i got home from a long day I found some tea prepared for me. I really felt home and will be back.

The Bronx Guest House is a delightful retreat in the heart of a thriving area. Where else does a weary traveler arrive at there destination to find a fresh brewed pot of tea and a smiling hostess to greet them? I have stayed there several times now and plan to return. The Metro North Train is within easy walking distance and takes you to the Bronx Zoo, Botanical Gardens, or Manhattan. If you are in the area, check it out.

I loved my stay at the Bronx guest house. For me it was a home from home during Thanksgiving week 2007. While I did not have any meals at the guest house, I loved the comfortable, warm atmosphere and the quietness which made it a restful place to stay. I will be back again during my next visit to NY.

Our stay at the Bronx Guesthouse was absolutely amazing. Denise and Edna went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable, fed and accommodated. They rooms were absolutely gorgeous, clean and comfortable. The food was great! I would definitely stay here again.
