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 just saw Oscar he was really friendly!! Even though we stayed just for a night we appreciated the place the room was comfortable and clean and the appartment was lovely. We recommend!!
Becky & Oscar are super friendly, we had a great time staying at their place.
It's clean, nicely furnished, absolutely quiet and perfectly located for visiting Philadelphia.
We just can highly recommend this place :)
Becky and Oscar's house was really nice. In a very central place with a 15 minute walk to City Hall/City Center. The room was nice, clean, and all other amentities were nice. Check in was easy, and Becky and Oscar were happy to have us arrive a little early and leave our bags. I would recommend staying at the place.Thanks guys had a great stay in Philly!
Beckey and Oscar were wonderful, they did everything to make our stay great, even recommended a great cheesesteak place for us to try. Loved staying there, and would stay again.
Becky and Oscar are very welcoming and, even though we arrived in the middle of the afternoon when they were not around, sent detailed instructions and arranged everything (including leaving various helpful post-it notes) to make it extremely easy for us to find the place and get in.
The accommodation is in a good location to visit the museums, which was our priority. The flat is very clean, the bathroom is great, and the room is a nice size for two.
Overall, it was an excellent experience and I am not surprised that they get such excellent reviews.
absolutely amazing hosts. very warm, welcoming and friendly! will definitely stay here again when we visit philly again!
We had a great time at Becky and Oscar's! The apartment is very conveniently located, about a 15-minute walk to downtown and to the art museum (Rocky steps!). There is an incredible bike trail next to the museum and river that goes on and on, perfect for running or cycling. We slept well in the A/C, the mattress was firm and comfortable. We briefly spoke with the hosts, they are very laid-back and quite nice to talk to. They live and let live. Check-in and check-out was easy even though the hosts were not there. Super efficent communication. You may be parked one or two streets away from the place (it's the city, after all) and look out for parking restrictions. All in all, definitely a place to recommend! Would go back!

About the Host, Becky And Oscar
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!
