Description

The Space

**DISCLAIMER**
We want to make clear that everyone knows this is a walk up apartment without an elevator. There are 3 flights of stairs and the first flight is steep. We dont mind helping any guests with luggage or anything else up the stairs! :)

***Inquiries***
Interested in staying in the guest room in our apartment? Please message us first!
We prefer if you send an inquiry first so that we may have the opportunity to correspond with you and get to know you better before accepting.

Our check in/out times are flexible, so just let us know what you need. If we have a guest staying the night before or the night after your reservation then check in time is after 3pm and check out time is before 11am. We do this so that we may have enough time to clean the room and apartment for the next guest. Weekdays check in is much more flexible. Weekends we work and check in times vary on our work schedules

Getting Around

***Transportation***
Philly has taxis and a thing called "Uber". It is most of the time cheaper than cabs. If you download the Uber app on your iPhone or Android and use the promo code: uberaishamaria you get a FREE ride!


MFL-Blue Line (2nd Street Stop) Subway/metro, bus stops RIGHT outside the front door. 5 min. ride to City Hall, Center City, Convention Center, Rittenhouse Square, Avenue of the Arts, etc and the Phlash bus has a stop right in front of our door as well as the Big Bus hop on hop off tour.

We are only a 15 minute drive from the airport and there is a flat rate from the city cab drivers of $30 (plus tip) from the airport to anywhere in the city. Or there is a train that runs from the airport into center city and then you switch to a local line that stops right in front of our house. This costs about $8-$10 and will take about 45 minutes.
and there is a shuttle $10 takes you right to our door called Lady Liberty Shuttle
