Good location, fair price, stained sofa.

  • 3 of 5

This is an older rowhouse apartment, nothing special to look at. Full kitchen (stocked with teabags, instant coffee, Quaker oats and sugar), 1 BR, full bath, living room with TV. The sofa bed in the living room had multiple stains, the largest of which was a disturbing shade of yellow. For me, that piece of furniture was unusable. The queen size bed had a memory foam mattress that was just ok comfort-wise. A downspout in the alley outside the bedroom window produced the sound of splashing water throughout the night which made it hard to sleep. There is WiFi but you can't get a signal in the bedroom. The price is higher than listed because of added fees. On the bright side, other than the scary sofa, the place was clean and well-located, within easy walking distance of many restaurants and shops in the historic waterfront neighborhood.

This is the place to stay if you are going to visit Philly! Cozy yet spacious apartment in the heart of Philadelphia located on a quiet street with a very convenient dog park 1/2 block away. Everything is walkable from this property and the parking situation wasn’t too big of a deal as there is a parking garage about 3 blocks away. There is even a private outdoor space out back for the apartment just outside the bedroom sliding door. 5 stars! I can’t wait to return for another visit! Thank you Rich!

Wonderful place to stay & great location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend & I stayed here (with our dog) for a few days. It's a great apartment on a nice quiet street. It was the perfect size for us. The location is great; a nice walk to all the places people usually visit in Philadelphia. The parking in Philadelphia is limited & a bit odd, but that's to be expected in pretty much all cities.

Would definitely stay here again.
