Really Amazing

  • 4 of 5

I can't say enough about this place. It was wonderfully clean and really large. We were a party of 2 couples and there were only 4 towels but we did manage and the toilet seat in the hall bathroom needs to be tightened. Other than those 2 things everything was great. It is close to everything so we were able to walk to see what we wanted to see. If we ever get back, we hope this will be available.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment met all of our needs and I would definitely stay here again! It was a lot more spacious than we expected and it was in a great location. Not having a specific parking spot was a downfall, but it's kind of to be expected in the city. The elevator right up to the apartment made it easy for us to carry our things in and out.

We loved the location, the appliances are very good.

  • 4 of 5

I brought my parents to Philadelphia for my niece’s graduation from Med School. The location is perfect. Close to so much history! We ate all of our breakfasts and two dinners in the apartment because my parents tired quickly. That went perfectly.

It was confusing getting into the apartment, directions state use the orange walk way. There was an orange building on the left side of a walkway it turns out that was the walk way. The key pad is not obvious until you get all the way down to the big wooden door and it is on the left wall. So I spent considerable time trying to open another units door.

The elevator worked perfectly. There are two fairly large steps to go up before getting to the elevator. My Mom can do a few steps so it worked good for her. She has a small manual wheel chair so getttong into and out of the elevator worked well. A person using a power wheelchair could not use the property because of the tight turn to access the elevator and the steps. I say this so people understand what the apartment can acomodate. A wheelchair will not fit into the bathroom.either. Again for what we needed as my Mom could walk around the apartment it worked perfectly.

The problem we did have was believing that we had a 3 bedroom apartment that would sleep 8. We had 5 adults in our party. There are 2 bedrooms with a queen size bed in each. There was a sofa bed in the living room ,a rollaway and an inflatable mattress. That meant that 2 people had to sleep in the living room that has a glass wall facing the street.

The rollaway was broken, the inflatable has a slow leak and there was only one set of sheets for the two sleeping in the living room.

So the sleeping arrangements were the only negative To our stay. It is perfect for two couples as is but to have additional people they need to be aware that they will be sleeping in the living area with the window wall facing the street.
