About this listing

Great room! Easy access to downtown - walking distance to mass transit (34 trolley) and free street parking. Come and go as you please. Late arrivals & last minute bookings ok. A/C unit in the room. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance! Shared bathroom. Just message us if you need to arrive earlier than 6 pm - self -checkin is an option and we are flexible!

The space

Enjoy this comfortable room in our West Philly home. Easy to get to on mass transit - walking distance to both the 34 trolley (3 minutes) or El/Blue line (12 minutes).

Our neighborhood has lots of great qualities - we are walking distance to a local food co-op, Farmers Market, playgrounds/parks, and many community/arts spaces (Rotunda, A-Space, Calvary, Studio 34 ), several nice cafes including several with vegan options, and great reasonably-priced and delicious restaurants (including Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Laotian/Thai, Middle Eastern/Halal, Indian, and American). We can suggest local events to check out during your visit! We have materials for you with information about our neighborhood restaurants, shops, and community spaces. Our neighborhood is an easy 15-20 minute trolley ride from downtown.

We have two very friendly cats who would be happy to snuggle with you, if you let them.

The room has two windows, a queen sized bed, a desk with books and office supplies, and a dresser for your clothes. A/C in summer, heat and space heater in winter. Guest room is stocked with several books about visiting Philadelphia. The room has a tv only with international satellite (Sorry, but the English options on that tv are pretty limited. Mostly Arabic tv stations.). We have wifi internet access. **Shared bathroom.**

Plenty of free street parking.

We especially welcome international travelers - Aziz speaks English, Arabic, French, limited Spanish and limited Italian.

Babies/small children are welcome to stay in room with parent(s) if you want to share the bed. (We have a sweet toddler, and she will share her toys!)

No smoking in our home, but we have a front porch you can smoke/hang out on. Enjoy the very authentic Philly experience of hanging out on a row house porch!

Guest access

Free wi-fi, dresser for your clothes and place to hang items that need to be hung up. Towels, shampoo and soap also available!

Interaction with guests

We will generally be around/present during a guest's stay, and of course want to greet you and make sure you have everything you need. We are happy to help with restaurant/sight-seeing suggestions, but otherwise we will let you go about your business.

We are happy to share the fridge and microwave, but you are expected to do your own dishes. No drugs, drinking, or guns in our home. If you've been drinking, please retire to your room rather than hanging out in the common space. Our cats are indoor cats, but they will try to escape the house when you open the front door. If they get out, don't panic - they will stay in the front yard until we can get them back into the house.

We are open to your feedback and will happily respond to any questions you may have. Thank you!

Aziz is very helpful! When we failed to open the door at midnight, Aziz woke up and help us out! And his daughter is lovely. The whole family is very nice.

Aziz is a very nice host. Unfortunately we didn't get the chance to interact much but we had everything that we needed and the place was exactly as described.

The room is exactly like the pic, the bed is so comfy that I don't even want to get up and end up checking out at 12. The internet speed is fast. The neighborhood is fine, not like a very safe place but it's safe. Two cats are very friendly and cute. Aziz is super nice, and also their daughter is sweet and lovely. It is a place for people who want to stay quiet and has regular schedule. Because I was so worried about waking them up at night since I slept pretty late. Highly recommended.

Aziz and his family were great hosts. They communicated very well about their plans so that we could coordinate check in. They had towels, shampoo, water, wi-fi code and information about the neighborhood. They have an adorable daughter and two cute cats (I'm slightly allergic so we didn't let them in the room too much.) The neighborhood is only a five minute drive to lots of restaurants and 15-minute drive to Central City. We felt very comfortable there.
