Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We didn't meet Silvana in person, but she reply quickly to email, there were no problem. Everything was as promised, clean, great location, safe neighborhood. Thanks for accommodation.

  • I didn't see Silvana, but the instructions were easy to understand. The equipment in the apartment is rudimentary. If you can be accommodated easily, it's a deal, but if you need a certain comfort and space, it's a little bit to small.

  • While communication with Silvana went smoothly, my husband and I were disappointed with our stay in this apartment. We found the condition of the flat lacking - there was mold growing on the shower door, the toilet ran, both the bathroom and kitchen sinks stopped up during our 4 day stay, requiring us to use the plunger on them. The bed was comfortable, but the rest of the furnishings were flimsy and falling apart. There were holes in the walls and a piece of moulding, with a nail sticking out of it, dangling from the ceiling above the bed making my husband fear it would fall on him during the night. All in all, I would not recommend staying here.

  • Silvana was a great host and very easy to communicate with. The apartment is in a great location and has everything you need. I can highly recommend it!

  • Silvana was very quick to respond to all questions about this apartment. We decided to stay for a few extra nights and she was incredibly accommodating to our last-minute requests. When the apartment was booked, she moved us to her upstairs apartment at a reduced price--talk about loyalty! The pictures were a very good representation of the space and the descriptions were accurate. It was perfect for a few days visiting the city or for some quiet time away from your normal life. Comfortable bed, usable kitchen, and a lot of toiletries included. When the windows are open, street noise can be a bit loud, but only because it's on the first level. Overall, a wonderful experience.

  • Silvana was very helpful answering all our questions and check-in and out was extremely easy. The apartment is convenient located in a quiet area, nearby supermarket, bus and a short walk to city center. You can easily go to 30th St. Station by taxi in 10-15 minutes. The aparment was clean and comfortable.

  • The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • I booked a little over a month-long stay at Silvana's apartment as a transition until I found a permanent apartment in Philadelphia, since I was moving for work. Though I did not get to meet Silvana, she was wonderfully attentive and accommodating. I had to shorten my stay since I did eventually find an apartment, and was graciously refunded the rest of my stay.

    The place was comfortable, very clean and well-appointed; I had everything I needed. It's in a convenient if rather neighborhood-y location, a close walk to Center City and quiet. I would definitely recommend it.

  • We didn't have the luck to meet Silvana. However the appartment was really clean and spacious. It's close to the center of Philly (25 mn walking).
    We recommend this to anyone that want to visit Philly for a couple of days.

  • Place and view were spectacular. Got upgraded and got to check out when I wanted. Amazing living room and bedroom, products in bathroom were phenomenal.
