Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

If you are looking for luxury and much much more than a hotel room then you have found it. This high end apartment is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a traditional 3 story Row House that's over 150 years old. It has all the bells and whistles of any new construction but with the bones and structure of old Philadelphia. With over 300 different stores and restaurants within a 5 block radius, it doesn't come more perfect Philadelphia than this. Located over the oldest Tattoo Studio in the district, this apartment aims to please with class, style and an artistic flare that you will find no other place.

Walk up the first flight of stairs to the 2nd floor and you enter the living room and kitchen area. The kitchen is amazing, it has granite counter tops with full granite back splashes. All upgraded stainless steel appliances from the Thermador Gas stove to the Bosch Dishwasher, a convection oven/microwave and full sized refrigerator. There is breakfast counter/ bar area that opens to the living room and a separate built in dining area. The kitchen has exposed brick though out and hardwood floors to go though out the kitchen and into the living room.

The living room has a big beautiful bay window with an enormous piece of stained glass that is over a 100 years old. There is a beautiful architectural columns and all custom built furniture through out. There is a large screened TV with a Bose surround sound, DVD and VCR. There are two different pull out sofa beds on this living room level. One is a traditional sleeper sofa that you would imagine that pulls out to a full sized bed.

The other is a super comfy sofa also pulls out to an upgraded queen sized bed. This is not just any kind of pull out bed either. This is the best and most comfortable sleeper sofa money could buy. It's from American leather and it has a tempur pedic mattress. No bars, no coils and no paper thin mattress to hurt your back.

So if you are two couples traveling together, neither couple will get the short end of the stick when it comes to sleeping comfort

Walk up the 2nd staircase and into the master bedroom and master bathroom. The master bathroom is unbelievable. There is a gorgeous pedestal sink, a stand up shower with multiple body sprayers and a triangle shaped Jacuzzi hot tub that's big enough for two. There is dim-able lights and also a TV in this bathroom, in case you like a little entertainment with your bubbles and long hot soak.

The master bedroom is just that, built for a master, it is not small by any measure and takes up the same amount of space as the living room bellow it. There is a queen sized heavenly bed that not only has an upgraded mattress but upgraded plush pillows and high thread count linens to go with it. There is a Victorian ladies vanity table and two separate closets, both with double doors. Did I mention the massage chair??

If you are looking for all the high end comforts of home and way more room for entertaining with family and friends then you have found the place to call home while visiting the historic city of Philadelphia.

Great Stay in Philly

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific place! Truly unique decor, very clean, incredible hospitality. Wonderfully located to reach lots of the historical parts of Philadelphia. Like any big city, of course, parking is a challenge, but there is a parking lot close. We have stayed in a lot of places, and this is one of the top ones. Thank you!

Great house, extremely clean, loved all of the amenities and courtesies extended

  • 4 of 5

This was a truly great place to stay. Gabby gave us a nice walk-through of the property and pointed out everything that we might need or want while we were there; she was also helpful with parking tips, and we were lucky enough to get street parking overnight that wasn't metered both days that we were here. It is awesome that the owner has provided so many little niceties (extra blankets, extra sheets, lot of towels and wash clothes, free coffee and filters, tea, some small grocery items, a bottle of wine, free WiFi, lots of cable channels, etc.) and those all made our stay very enjoyable. The master bedroom was quite comfortable and the bed slept well. Street noise was at times noticeable, but not an annoyance for us as we live along a small town street ourselves; the tattoo shop downstairs was at times heard too (door slamming), but again not a major annoyance. I wouldn't recommend the sleep sofas for anyone other than a single person or small child that can sleep on them without unfolding them; the mattresses are quite worn and not comfortable in the queen/open position. We were a group of four with one of these being a small child, so the sofas worked out well. Overall, we really enjoyed this accommodation, location and extremely clean townhouse. Thank you for a great experience!

Lovely Apartment - comfortable, clean, welcoming, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in a great location. Within walking distance of Independence Hall and other historical sites. Lovely Apartment was clean and comfortable. Jacuzzi was very much appreciated after a full day of walking around Philadelphia. Anna's assistants, Kate and Gabby, we're great with communication. Gabby checked us in. She was very nice and helpful.

There is a mini market next door and numerous restaurants within walking distance. We had a very good Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich at Woodrow Sandwich Shop on 630 South Street (left on South St. About 6 min walk).

While you do not need a car, there is parking nearby if you do drive. A parking lot around the corner on Bainbridge Street is $10 for the day or $20 for 24 hours. Less expensive 2 hour street parking in front of apartment was available during our stay. We were also able to find free anytime street parking spots a couple of blocks away. We kept our car in the lot for the first full day as we were touring historic sites within walking distance. Then on the 2nd day we used our car to explore further out in Philadelphia, but were able to find a free spot only a couple of blocks away when we returned. The 2 hour spots in front of the apartment were convenient for loading and unloading our luggage. Got a 2hr spot a couple of cars away for check in and a spot right in front for check out.

Coffee and selection of tea provided, as well as well appointed kitchen, was appreciated. Great living room, bedroom and bathroom too. Living room and kitchen on 2nd floor. Bathroom and bedroom on 3rd floor (Bathroom is separate room outside of bedroom). Well lit apartment. Loved the options of all of the lights (so much better than the typical hotel room, which often provides limited light). Beautiful windows brought in a lot of natural light too.

All around a perfect Homeaway stay for our family of 2 adults and 2 teens. Thank you!
