The space

Cozy bedroom/office available in University City. The office has a large desk with an external monitor for guest to use. The room easily converts to a bedroom with a pull out mattress topped with a plush mattress pad. Use the room to catch up on work or just to relax and recharge after a busy day in the city.

The house is within walking distance of University City schools (Univ of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Univ of the Sciences) and nearby hospitals (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania (CHOP), Penn Presbyterian Medical Center). Also walkable is the vibrant university city restaurant and bar scene (for more details visit the university city district website). Close by are also several cafes and a grocery store.

Guest access

Guests will private access to their bedroom, shared access to bathroom, kitchen and common living areas.

The neighborhood

The neighborhood, the West Powelton section of University City, is an actively developing area with a colorful mix of long-term residents and student renters, young professional new-homeowners. The neighborhood is very safe, with a 24-hour university city district security staff that patrol the neighborhood, but guest who are not used to an urban aesthetic should judge their own comfort levels.

Getting around

-- free street parking (no permits or time restrictions)
-- 8 min walk to 40th street market-frankford subway line (5 min ride into center city)
-- the house is serviced by both University of Pennsylvania and Drexel evening shuttles that are free to Upenn, Drexel, and Univ of the Sciences affiliates with valid ID

Other things to note

The room is quite small, and does not have a closet. I leave a space in the hallway closest for extra storage.
