The Space

We have a awesome efficiency studio in Center City Philadelphia that we have renovated. If you are in Philadelphia and want to experience the vibrant Philadelphia/Center City/ Downtown vibe from a locals perspective this is the perfect location, The apartment is located between Rittenhouse square and the Theatre district 2 blocks either way, its in an older but very safe building, The studio is clean quiet and cutely furnished. There is a flat sceen TV (over the air high def, netflix,hulu etc.), and private internet. The apartment is on the front facing the street on the top floor (two flights of stairs) with a great view of Pine Street. Space heaters and the A/C unit make it very comfortable in any weather. It has a full bed, a small sofa, (and an air bed if required), The neighborhood is Awesome (this address is in the Center City/ Rittenhouse area of Philadelphia and has a neighborhood Walk Score of 100) .and you can spend the money you have saved vs renting a hotel room on the excellent shopping and dining that are only steps away, (the subway is less than 2 blocks also and from there its a straight shot on the Broad street line to the stadium and hockey rink about 15 minutes). Expect the apartment to be fully stocked, exceptionally clean with plenty of fresh towels and bed linens

  • Metra and Robert were fabulous hosts, and the apartment was just what I needed: location, quiet, comfort.

    July 2014
  • This was one of my best AirBnB experiences. First, Metra and Robert were very prompt in returning my request for booking and were very communicative during the entire period before, during, and after my stay. Next, the unit is exactly as pictured. The unit is located in a very safe and walk able neighborhood close to good restaurants (at various price points), a grocery, and the Broad Street main road. I was in town for business, and the unit served my needs perfectly. This unit was more than I needed for my short stay, and I could very easily see that this unit could be quite sufficient and comfortable for an extended stay. The unit is in an older, historic building, and both the exterior and interior of the unit have been well kept. The unit itself contained an eclectic mix of modern furnishings with historic touches. Also, upon check-in, Robert provided a custom printed (it had my name on it!) tri-fold which had all the information I needed for the unit and for various other frequently asked questions. It was also touched with little bits of humor. Robert, Metra and I were flexible on the check-in and check-out times and there was no problem coordinating. There was even an umbrella for me on one day when there was a light rain. It was these thoughtful touches which would definitely merit another stay at this property again when I come to Philadelphia.

    Thank you Metra and Robert for a wonderful and flawless stay!

    Aloha and Be Well!

  • I had a very nice stay. The location is convenient. The room is comfortable. Fast Internet access is a plus. Robert was very helpful and friendly. Wouldn't mind staying again if I visit Philly.

  • We had a great stay at Metra and Robert's place. Their place is very well located and we didnt need to move away from the locality as it had everything we needed. There is a deli on the ground floor that has all the basic stuff you would need. We also appreciated the personalised brochure that they gave us. Highly recommend!

  • The host was just how we like them - there when needed, but otherwise not around. Robert was very nice and helpful. The studio met our expectations. It was comfortable and included all the necessaries. My wife was thrilled with the decoration. The neighborhood was very nice - quiet and convenient to the metro, restaurants, and other sights in downtown Philly.

  • Perfect space for a couple. Clean and great location. Very easy to coordinate with Robert for check-in. They even provided a homemade Philly fact sheet - nice touch!

  • Thanks, Metra and Robert, for a wonderful stay in Philadelphia! The apartment is adorable, thoughtfully furnished and decorated. Plus the street is beautiful and quiet, central to all that Rittenhouse Square and downtown Philly have to offer. Robert was very understanding about a delay in my schedule and was waiting for me at the apartment door, then lifted my bag up the stairs for me. I hope to visit again!

  • Centrally located, nice light appartment. Clean. We had a great time here, nice to be able to cook yourself, everything you need for that is available. Tv with netflix nice for a relaxed night in. Helpful brochure with local tips from metra and robert, great! Only drawback would be the slightly present smell of smoke throughout the whole house, but also the apparment.

    Response from Robert:

    Thanks Judith for the review, We do have a strict "No smoking inside the building" policy, however at the same we don't "police" our guests activities at all, but count them (on our guests) being courteous to others, occasionally this backfires somewhat. We do go to lengths to make sure the studios are clean and fresh smelling especially if we suspect there has been smoking in the studio.We look forward to hosting you again in future and this type of annoyance occurs again please don't hesitate to contact us by text message and we will immediately rectify it. Thanks Metra and Robert
