Locally known as “Old City" comprises some of Philadelphia's oldest buildings, dating back to colonial times. Walk to Philadelphia's most iconic symbol, the Liberty Bell. The area also includes the Graff house, where Thomas Jefferson lived while writing the Declaration of Independence, Independence Hall, where it was signed and ratified, and the Betsy Ross House, where (legend has it) the celebrated seamstress sewed the first American flag.

With the Delaware River bordering the area, the old charm of this area combines with the dense array of bars, restaurants, and shops that draw in tourists as well as seasoned residents. Here you'll find restaurants featuring Chinese, Japanese, French, Italian, Mexican, Burmese, Korean and Vietnamese food. For those brave enough to tackle something on the hot side, Han Dynasty is famous for its spicy dishes, particularly the fiery Dan Dan noodles.

We want to make your stay smooth and enjoyable! Please call us or email us if you have any questions or requests we can help with during your stay. The earlier, the better.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

The apartment is steps away from the 2nd street metro station and offers convenient public transport to all parts of the city.

CABS, UBER & LYFT

In case you need a quick ride, we do recommend using UBER or LYFT. Both services are very well developed in Philly and are much cheaper, better looking and more convenient than regular cabs.

PARKING: There is no parking with the apartment, however, there are several parking garages within the same block at about $20/ night. The nearest place to park is 210 Filbert street, 30 seconds away from the building entrance. Street parking is also an option just during the night. At most locations, it is free between 6 or 10 pm and 8 am.

Check-in starts at 3 p.m. and it is not possible for us to accommodate earlier check-in or later check-out because we need time to clean and prepare in-between guests.

We provide all the toiletries and linen for your stay, just like a hotel would (but a lot better).

We do not offer any discounts other than the automated discounts that you will receive if you stay longer than 7 or 30 days.

We strive to provide you with the best hospitality possible so let us know if you have any questions or needs that we can help with! We hope that you contact us as early as you need something so that we may address it on time and provide you with an amazing experience!

Easy and convenient to the heart of Philadelphia!

  • 4 of 5

Great setting for any tourist trying to see the heart of Philadelphia’s old city. The apartment was clean and had all we needed (could’ve used a few more towels), as well as being very easy to access. The management dealt with our booking issues quickly thanks to availability and was very responsive in general.

The great toilet tissue hunt.

  • 3 of 5

Just OK. Good location, clean, rather stark interior, no toilet tissue upon arrival (had to buy my own), no washcloths. Trash had not been emptied. Inconvenient parking, but that's Philly as a whole.

Owner's Response: Dear William, I apologize once again for not having toilet tissue paper upon your arrival, although we did bring it shortly after. As I had explained this once an isolated issue due to change of cleaners which I quickly resolved. We don't provide washcloth but we do provide you with hand and bath towels. As for parking, you're in a city so it isn't fair to expect to park in front of the building. There are plenty of garage options which we shared with you.

Fabulous location to explore Old City

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on a quaint cobblestone quiet street with historic sites and places to eat within blocks. It is completely updated and very comfortable for two persons. We loved the location and would return.

To note: there are no toiletries( soap, shampoo)as frequently in apartments. Also no wash clothes or hand towels but there were bath towels. The only big frustration was not being able to figure the television. An explanation of how to switch from the streaming mode to live t.v. Would have been helpful.

Owner's Response: Robyn thanks for staying with us. We were in the middle of cleaner switching and that’s why there were issues with towels and toiletries. We are near done with this transition as of this weekend. Also, we don’t advertise to have cable TV and that’s why there aren’t instructions. We simply offer Netflix movies.
