Great place for 4 or 5! Close to attractions.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of space for the three of us. Walked to all the historic attractions. Stairs are narrow but manageable. Plush towels and down comforters. City noise is a little much if you are not used to it.

  • 4 of 5

Great location with numerous eating options. Walked to the convention center each day in under 10 minutes. Good launching point to see all the sites. The house is old with small steps, but has everything you will need. Friday and Saturday night were very loud from 11pm -230am because the bars downstairs.

Unique space in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the apartment was new to me, although I hear it's common in the old buildings of Philadelphia. Huge common room and upper bedroom. Plenty of sleeping accommodations and all of us were comfortable. The staircase going to the bedroom upstairs is very narrow and steep. There is a circular stairway from the second floor hallway where you enter the apartment and the bathroom is located halfway up these stairs.

We had a little trouble getting in at first but it ended up being our own misunderstanding of the lockbox. Our host responded quickly to our questions after an initial delay.

There was a lot of street and bar noise on Saturday night but we didn't mind it. We played Name That Tune to the really bad, drunk karaoke!

Overall, it was a great home base for our trip! Thanks Jessica!

Right in the middle of everything. What a great spot.

  • 5 of 5

Love the communication with the owner. The apartment is right in the middle of town. I used it as a remote office as I was in town for a trade show. The building is very , very old, and very unique. It is not fancy at all, very basic, no frills, and has lots of very narrow stairs. If you are a person of size, it will not be for you. Also it is downtown, close to everything. I never rented a car, just did not need one. Walk to everything. The apartment is on the 3rd and 4th floor, in a very busy , noisy part of town. Get some ear plugs if you go to bed early. If you like a lot of choice for restaurants and bars this is the party street ! The guys in Ben and Jerry's were very helpful and really nice at making recommendations and helping with directions. Not a place to hold a party, you have neighbors. But a place to walk home after a night out! I would hope to rent it again when I come back to town. It was perfect for me. Big thanks to the owner.

OK but nothing special

Need to update the shower head and add handrails to the steep stairways.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

I was able to walk to all of the conference center and all of the local sites. The people at the Ben and Jerry's were a great help.The only thing I missed in the kitchen was a pitcher. Between the main floor and the bedroom upstairs there is no door, just a lot of steep narrow stairs. The bed was very firm. The roof slopes in on you in that room quite a bit. There was a fair amount of street noise, I imagine if you are there during the summer when the AC is on it would not be as noticeable. When I tried to use the oven it ended up setting off the fire alarm, but the hostess was very gracious about it. The internet and TV worked great. The main room with the table and couch and TV is quite large. Overall I enjoyed my stay. I feel it was a fair price.
