When you visit South Philadelphia, don't forget to visit our famous 'Geno's', 'Pat's' Cheesesteaks, the original 'Primo Hoagies', Italian Market, or the first Italian restaurant "Ralph". South Street is also another unique attraction that you don't want to miss.
The studio is right across from the bus stop.
Hosts will welcome any questions regarding directions to any guest(s) who would like to go to certain places: attractions, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Don't ever hesitate to ask. When we said it is convenient, it really is convenient especially if you drive a car - only minutes away from grocery stores, gym & retail stores.
However, if you don't have a car, take the tour in the city by riding a bus would be perfect. The bus stop is right across from the apartment.

There is an extra charge for each additional person: $10/night.
The cleaning fee rate for long term stay: $50

It's a good place for a weekend. The only problem is that is always cold inside. Mer was a good host. I forgot my shoes and she send them to my place. Thanks Mer.
Natalie and her boyfriend were great guests at our apartment.
We didn't know they were having problem with setting up the thermostat until on their last day, Nathalie emailed me saying that they were using the space heater as the place was cold. My husband and I went to the apartment right away as our heating system was new and we never had any problem with the heater before. Apparently the thermostat was set up with the cool setting instead of hot setting. The kitchen window also didn't shut all the way as we could feel the breeze came in. We wish Nathalie contacted us sooner as that issue can be fixed quickly. We apologize if you and your boyfriend had to experience the coldness. Going forward, we will put a little instructions for our guests so they know how to set up the thermostat properly.
Thanks for being such a great guest, Nathalie. We wish you all the best! :)
We stayed four nights and found this studio to be a good size for this amount of time. It was clean and appliances were new and wonderful! Closet space was appreciated! Mer made herself accessible, but we only needed to communicate ahead of time. The notes she had around made it so that we didn't need to contact her for anything.
The entrance is great, with only one lock on the outermost door and a small foyer of sorts in which to put down bags when opening the two locks on the inner door--appreciated in the rainstorm!!
Parking was rough--a bit more so than on our daughter's street a few blocks away--but this is Philly and it's to be expected!
Thank you, Mer, for the small heater in the back part where the bathroom with shower is located. You made good use of the space there.
It was a great experience I highly recommend staying here mer was always helpful with any issue
Very cozy and close to the city center. Was the perfect spot for my fiance and I to rest our heads the weekend that I ran the Philadelphia marathon. Thanks for everything!
Mer e suo marito Kevin sono stati (website hidden) hanno fatto avere notizie sia pratiche che turistiche. Kevin è addirittura venuto dal New Jersey per spiegarci come funzionavano i telecomandi per la TV, il décoder e il lettore DVD (che ci hanno fatto trovare su richiesta nostra!). Il mini appartamento è molto accogliente e carino, è un pò poco luminoso, ma è risultato perfetto per le nostre esigenze, soprattutto per il fatto che potevamo cucinare e fare il bucato. Inoltre Mer lascia a disposizione tutto quello che può servire inizialmente (carta igienica, sapone, etc). La posizione è ottima: per andare in città c'è il bus 17 ad un solo isolato e al ritorno ti lascia davanti casa oppure a soli 4 o 5 isolati (10 min circa a piedi) c'è la metropolitana. Fra l'altro il bus 37 ad un solo isolato offre un collegamento diretto con l'aeroporto (attenzione però che a prendere il 37 chester per tornare in aeroporto perché c'è n'è un altro che non ci va). La zona dove si trova l'appartamento non è male ed è ok, però è vero che a seconda di dove vai in South Philly ti puoi trovare in quartieri non troppo raccomandabili, ma questo vale per tutte le grandi città. Ad ogni modo se torniamo a Philadelphia (e spero proprio di sì perché è una bellissima città!) saremo molto volentieri di nuovo ospiti di Mer ☺
excatly as described. parking notice is really just a disclaimer as this is Philly.
I had no problems with parking, and there was a bus stop right out front the door.
worked perfect for me.
Mer was a great host. This was my first time using Airbnb and everything was just perfect! Mer had detailed instructions for everything, so everything was fool-proof. The Apartment is spacious, clean and offers everything one could wish for, even a rice cooker (yay!). Although the Neighborhood can be a bit intimidating, especially at night, the bus stops right outside the front door; and in ca. 20 minutes you are downtown. This was the perfect introduction to Airbnb for me, Thank you very much!
