Best Place in Philly

  • 5 of 5

Went there for a college reunion. The location is the best possible location for fun in the city. Quiet and safe for sleeping and relaxing, but literally blocks and minutes away for great dining and night life. The communication with Robert and Margot was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Great place in an unexpectedly great area

  • 5 of 5

Newly upgraded yet quaint home in an old area of philly that feels like you're in history. Walking distance to downtown and all great eating spots. Would definitely stay here again.

Good location, Cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for 3 nights and this place was perfect. Located within easy walking distance of Center City and South Street, there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, and it's a quiet street. The place was nice looking and neat with everything we needed for the weekend. The owner was responsive when I texted and was quick to answer emails prior to arrival.

Perfectly updated and walking distance to everything that I needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great alternative to hotel stay for traveling on business. Comfortable and Quiet. Close to great city fare.

Comfortable walk to convention center and hotel venues; day or night.

Downpour soaked me getting out of cab. Laundry services were welcome relief.

I am VRBO veteran. This is a great place!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for quiet and sightseeing, a rare mix that is hard to find. Family of four stayed. Be aware the futon style bed is very firm and not for everyone. Beautiful inside and meticulously clean. Great if you are without a car. We loved it.
