Very good place for two to three people. Warm host and private place. although this apartment is near the street but it is very quiet. The kitchen is fully equipment and we even find the Chinese spices.
Great apartment in the center of the city. Near all shops and the best restaurants. Loved the homely feel and cleanliness. The bed was very comfortable too... I didn't want to get up. Naki's apartment won't disappoint
Beautiful apartment in an amazing location. A short walk to everything and steps from Rittenhouse Square. The bed is very comfortable. Naki was a wonderful host and we would definitely stay again.
Working with Nakia was very smooth and everything went according to plan. Great location in Rittenhouse. My girlfriend and I were able to get around easily to every place we needed to go. The apartment was very nice with a large bathroom and comfortable bed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nakia's apartment. It is simply *beautiful* and the location is perfect for anyone visiting the city for pleasure as well as business travelers with commitments in center city.
Nakia was a wonderful host - very kind, great communication and flexible with check-in and check-out logistics. We visit Philly at least once a year and would hope that Nakia's apartment will be available next time!
GREAT LOCATION! Nakia- was very detailed about how to get the key, where I could find different things. When I left my earring and shampoo she made sure I got them back. The bed was comfy and bathroom was lovely. If you like to unpack your suitcase, this may not be the place for you. There is very little closet space and no drawer space. I had a red-eye into Philly and she accommodated my 7 AM arrival!
This place was great! Amazing location, close to everything. Our host was very attentive and helpful, as well as being responsive and flexible to some last minute inquiries and changes. For our first AirBNB experience, it was a winner. Thank you for a great first family vacation!
