Dora was extremely warm and kind throughout my stay. Her house is lovely and peaceful, and in an area of the city that is really pleasant to walk around. It's also close enough to center city that I really didn't have to rely on transit either day that I stayed and just spent a really nice weekend exploring Philadelphia and catching up with friends. The welcome sheet describing my responsibilities and role as someone staying was very helpful because I'd never used Airbnb before, and it was such a pleasant experience that I will gladly use it again in the future. This is a really lovely little house, too.
Unfortunately, the listing is not accurate.
Both, photographs and the description do NOT do the justice and do NOT reflect either the premises or the experience you are bound to live staying at Dora's home.
The Hostess is amazing, warm, helpful and friendly.
The house is gorgeous, old, beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. Bedroom is cute and the bathroom is spectacular!
Location is within a walking distance from the City centre.
If and whenever I go back to Philly, I'll definitely stay at Dora's place.
Providing of course she'll have me back.
Dora is a very nice and kind person. It is my first time to reserve room from airbnb, Dora accept me without hesitation. I arrived late due to the traffic jam. she left the key for me. Her room was very beautiful ,clean and cozy. we share food, she make the green tea for me. we talk with each other happily. Dora gave me the feeling that I come back to my home. The most exciting things is that she take me join in their party, It's so wonderful. There is no words can express my thanks for Dora. It is really a good memory in my life. I will miss her and her lovely dog--- shanti
I had a lovely visit to Philadelphia and a wonderful stay with Dora. The house and my room were a great place; I enjoyed exploring the Northern Liberties neighborhood; Dora was very welcoming to me and my bicycle.
What a wonderful first experience through airbnb! Dora was a gracious host who opened her house up to me for the month of October. Keys, fresh water, and a welcome note were waiting for my in my room. This was very comforting, especially since I didn't get to meet her until the next day. The room itself was cozy. My only complaint would be the desk - it was very wobbly and not great for studying; but I made do. The neighborhood is one of those "up and coming." One street I feel safe and there are great restaurants; the next street I didn't. But walking to the trolley station and the grocery store I was fine, even early in the morning or late at night. Overall I feel like I lucked out staying in such a homey place. Gracias Dora!
I contacted Dora very last minute because of a double booking somewhere else. Although she was going out for the weekend herself, it was no problem having me over. She gave me a warm welcome and a lovely room to stay in. She even offered me to use her bike, which I did. Just around the corner are great played to eat and it's a 30/40 minute walk to the city centre.
Don't let the poor pictures fool you: it's prettiest house in the street! The rooms are excellent and it has everything you need for a nice stay in a warm house.

About the Host, Dora
Hi, I am from Peru. I have been in USA for almost 25 years. I love to walk, go to cultural events, read and to travel. I appreciate so much to be able to visit different countries and value their cultures. Be able to meet and share experiences with local people . For me, it is the best way to know about their culture, costumes and their country. So, I decided to be member with this great organization Airbnb because not only helps me to pay some bills but to know and share with beautiful people from different places.
