Everything perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a very conformable stay in a clean, quiet and will furnished apartment. Everything worked perfectly, the staff answered immediately to our questions via e-mail and promptly met our requests. The location is excellent, close to the Train station, o the city center and to the lovely Rittenhouse square, with a lot of shops and excellent restaurants in the neighbourhoods.

I wanted to love it.....

  • 1 of 5

I fell in love with the idea of this place when I arrived I was way less than pleased. The entire floor we stayed on smelled of garbage the apartment had a heavy odor. I had to run out and buy air freshner just to bear the scent. The television in the bedrooms were obviously for decoration only as neither of them were of any use. They weren't wired correctly so we had to watch TV in the living room only. The bed comforter was dirty in the inside once I pulled back the sheets to go to bed, floors were sticky. Towel racks in the bathrooms were Poorly put together and would fall the moment you placed your towel there. Overall disappointed wish it could've measured up to the level of excitement we had when we booked.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you had such a disappointing experience. Especially when all of our other reviews have been 4 or 5 stars. We note that your date of stay was listed as March 21st - which confuses us more because the property was empty at that time. We check in with our guests often and always ask how everything is going - we are always available on the phone and or email and should the TV's not have worked for you for some reason then we would have been happy to fix it for you, however as of today (2 days after your stay) we double checked and can verify that the TV's do indeed work. Again, I am so sorry for your negative experience.

  • 3 of 5

Be aware that the price on VRBO for this property is not accurate. There was an increase after selecting this property. Once arriving at the airport the property owners were over 30 minutes to pick up. The door man to this property was the most helpful and would give him 5 stars. Great view of the city

Excellent customer service, hospitality and beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this condo however a few days prior to our trip, we were notified by the hosts/owners that the building had a pipe burst given the frigid weather. We were informed that we would be moved into an alternative condo, which was closer to the Convention Center than the original one. We were a little nervous but felt so comfortable with Steve thus far with email exchanges that we thought we would go for it. When Steve picked us up from the airport, he was timely, friendly, and very helpful with regards to the city. The condo was not listed as he had not yet had a chance to do so but it was on Arch Street. Such a beautiful, comfortable condo. The doorman was always very friendly. It was within walking distance to a liquor store and market. If we travel to Philidelphia again, we will certainly look for U R Home in Philly owners again. A GREAT experience! You will not be disappointed. 2 thumbs up!

great stay in Philly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely condo while visiting Philadelphia for our son's wedding. There were 6 of us and the accommodations were perfect. The condo has great views of the city and the location worked well for us. When I called Steve to say that our coffee pot was broken and that we could use another blanket, he showed up that day with brand new replacements. Since we were busy, with the wedding, the whole time we were in Philly, we really didn't dine out much, but I can recommend two restaurants within walking distance of the condo: We had a wonderful dinner at the Italian Osteria and a great breakfast at Sabrina's Cafe. There are many other dining spots nearby. This is a great place to stay in Philly. Utilizing the available parking spot was very convenient. We would stay here again. Thank you Steven and Ann for being great hosts.

Our family with 2 girls (3 & 6), parents and grandparents felt so lucky to have discovered this property! Beautifully furnished, convenient kitchen with everything you need, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths in a nicely separated floor plan AND located across the street from Trader Joes! This is a one classy apartment with an extremely responsive landlord.

Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Philadelphia.
