Getting Around in Philly
It's super easy to get around in Philadelphia. Public transit - both the bus and subway- is conveniently located near our home.
If you plan to arrive to Philadelphia on megabus, bolt bus, or Amtrak you will be arriving into 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. The easiest way to go from 30th Street Station to our home would be to take a cab - it should be around $10. Public transportation is also convenient you can use the blue subway line headed east and take it to city hall. Then at the city hall stop there is a free interchange to the orange subway line. Take this line north to the spring garden stop. We're only a couple of blocks away from there!
Parking in our neighborhood is generally a breeze. There's a lot of on - street parking in our neighborhood right by the house. Just make sure that you pay attention to the signs when you park; some of the spots have time limits ( like 2 hours during the day) but there are many spots with no limits at all!

We stayed two nights in mid Feb and everything was as advertised. Good location for the event we were attending on Spring Garden and we even walked back from South St later that night and it wasn't too far. There are several options for food and drink within a few blocks, parking was easy to find and the house was clean and well appointed - thanks Becky and Oscar.
Becky and Oscars place is great! Really close to everything you wanna visit or need. The room is clean and the bed comfortable. The neighborhood is one of the most quiet ones we had on our trip so far and it's quite easy to find a parking spot. Oscar was the perfect host: He's so welcoming and provided us with the best sushi-recommendation ever. Thanks again!
It was very very convenient in terms of location and check in! The house was very clean and comfortable. Oscar was kind and helpful as well :)
Becky and Oscar were excellent hosts and their apartment was lovely. The space was very clean and welcoming. As they could not meet us upon arrival they organized to leave a key for us so we could come and go as we pleased which suited us perfectly. The bed was extremely comfortable! Our privacy was respected but we also enjoyed meeting and chatting to Oscar, and will hopefully meet Becky if we ever find ourselves back in Philadelphia. This was our first time using AirBnB and we would highly recommend it to anybody. Thanks for making our stay a pleasure!
Our stay with Becky and Oscar was lovely. Both were very welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable and the closet space was a nice plus! Oscar recommended a wonderful sushi place around the corner, and it was an easy walk to public transportation from their home. We couldn't have asked for a better place to crash for the night!
Oscar and Becky were great hosts! My friend and I stayed with them for a full week while in town for our graduate program. We only saw them a few times during our stay due to varying schedules but had great conversation. They were also helpful in recommending coffee shops and other eateries.
Some days it took awhile to find parking; however, we'd always find something within just a few blocks (just be sure you are versed in parallel parking).
Nice, clean and quiet place. Close to everything! Friendly hosts made me feel right at home.

We are life-long learners and educators. We're very laid back and respect other people's privacy, but we're also very happy to give you advice during your stay (combined we've got about 30 years living in the Philly area). In the summer, we love to garden and spend time on our patio, filled with flowers and fresh herbs. We love Fairmount Park, local (and international) museums, and enjoy a good book. Our place is perfect for someone looking for a comfortable and affordable stay while in Philly - it's the best choice for any traveler!
