Clean, pleasant, in a safe neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

I would have provided a five star except for the parking issue. There is no parking. Thus if you are driving, this is probably not the best place, as parking costs $25-$47 per 24 hours. I also happened to visited during the "transit strike" and drove around for hours to unload the car and then move out. I parked my car 1/2 mile away from the apartment and then illegally parked to move in and move out.

With this said, no doubt if you are flying and cabbing to Philadelphia this would be a great place to stay. Walking distance to a park, theater district and many fine cuisine restaurants. I left the owner a few notes, but overall I had a nice stay... after I had moved in for the the 3-night stay! The apartment is clean and fairly private. If the bed is too hard the couch is really comfy for sleep. There are spices for cooking and he provides linens, towel s, and a washer/dryer on site.

Lovely condo in historic Philadelphia!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay in this lovely condo. The pictures are quite accurate. Spacious high ceilings, modern kitchen appliances, including washer/dryer combo, dishwasher, oven, microwave, refrigerator. This first floor corner condo was easily accessible and we were able to find on street parking without too much trouble. You will need quarters for the parking meters, no cost overnight. A grocery store nearby had all the essentials and a lovely restaurant called the Marathon down the block provided us with excellent dinners after a day of visiting the historic sites. All in all, it was a great visit to Philadelphia and I would recommend Michael's condo to anyone. He has an excellent air conditioning system, wireless, cable TV with Netflix. All the comforts of home!

Excellent with a couple of minor glitches

  • 4 of 5

This is an extremely well-maintained unit in a terrific location. It is located a few blocks from Rittenburg Square, tucked among attractive and historic row houses. It's a great place for walkers, and a bus line that runs to and along Market Street is very close. There's a nice nearby bakery for morning coffee and lots of restaurants nearby. If you're driving, the best thing to do is leave your car in a nearby garage or lot. You won't need it.

Drawbacks? The unit is on the first floor, and passers-by can be clearly heard, even in conversation. Luckily, this wasn't an issue late at night. In addition, the wireless remote control for the thermostat didn't match the directions given by the owner. It seems like a simple device, but the heater pretty much refused to heat -- not a problem in October, but January would be a different story. Last, we arrived to find a lot of food in the refrigerator, obviously left by the previous tenant. The good news is that the owner responded quickly by having it removed the next day.

This is unit that's definitely worth considering if you want an historic urban location and a comfortable place to kick back.

Lovely and spacious but a little noisy.

  • 4 of 5

The entry was seamless (Michael gave us the door code and a key was waiting under the mat).

The apartment was as tastefully decorated as pictured (minus the ironing board which we actually could have used this time) with lots of room and high ceilings.

It's also on the ground floor which we knew but since it's right by the front entrance, the neighbors who left the building around midnight then stood talking by the bedroom window were definitely disturbing.

The living room is a corner space with double windows and sheer curtains - very pretty but with the lights on at night you are visible to passersby. The bedroom has slightly more opaque curtains but I wasn't confident that they were thick enough to keep people from seeing in so I made sure to change in the bathroom each night. Not really a big deal but something to be aware of if you don't want to inadvertently give the street a show! We enjoyed the autonomy of ''our'' own cool space however so would definitely recommend it.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed one night in this charming historic apartment on a recent road trip. It is located a block from Rittenhouse Square in a very cool area of the city. The apartment was clean and bright, with many windows and high ceilings. We would have appreciated having a coffee maker, although we did learn how to make coffee on the stovetop! Two bath towels were provided for the two of us, so having a couple of extra towels and a washcloth or two would have been nice. Parking is problematic, but we found a parking deck for $25/day a few blocks from the apartment on 18th and South Streets. All in all, a cool place in a cool town!
