About This Listing
I have a large house in downtown Philadelphia. The house has two bedrooms available, one with a twin bed and the other with a full size bed. I live in the house on another floor. You will have access to the whole house and the roof decks.
I have two bedrooms available. One has a full size bed that will accommodate up to 2 people and the other has a twin bed in a new house in the Graduate Hospital area of center city Philadelphia. The two bedrooms share a bathroom and you would have use of the entire first floor where the living room and kitchen/dining room are. I only accept one party at a time so you will not be sharing a bathroom or the space with anyone else but the people in your party. If you are needing lodging for more than 3 people, I have an air mattress and another extra bedroom to put it in. I also have wireless internet, and many other amenities at your convenience. There is a free community swimming pool two blocks away also.
My house is just a short 10 minute walk to the most popular expensive place to live in the city, Rittenhouse Square, with all of your favorite shopping like Tiffany, Barneys, Armani Exchange, Cole Haan, and Club Monaco just to name a few. A 10 minute walk the other direction and you can be in the Italian Market area. The bus that goes to Old City and the convention center is just a block away along with another bus that will take you to the Philadelphia Museum of Art or the historic State Prison. Parking is very easy and free if you are driving. Please email me if you have any questions.
You will have access and use of the whole house.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house also but am not home a lot. I am easily reachable and can be home at a moments notice shall you need anything.
The neighborhood has been recently re-gentrified and is young families. There are bars, restaurants, and shopping nearby.
The 17 bus is a block away and takes you all over the city. It is the most popular bus in Philadelphia reaching more areas of downtown than any other. The 40 bus is about a 5 minute walk away and can take you to University City. Another bus 4 blocks away can take you to the Art Museum area.
No smoking inside the house.
Rob was a FANTASTIC host! He made us feel welcome in his home and gave us great recommendations on where to spend our time while we were in Philly. The apartment was extremely clean, well decorated, and stocked with fresh linens. I would recommend Rob and his apartment to everyone I know wishing to take a trip to Philadelphia!
Rob was very prompt in returning my emails about the location of his house. He also was easy to contact by phone when I first arrived and wasn't totally sure of the location. Since there is a keypad lock on the front door, it was very easy for me to "check in" with Rob. It made it simple to come and go. The location was key in my choosing this place. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. It also has a sun deck with a picnic table on the roof.
Rob is an outstanding host, he was most welcoming and highly interactive with us in making suggestions for historical site seeing restaurants and shared His incredible knowledge of historical site seeing & restaurants.
We had the pleasure of interacting with him every day and it was a history lesson of the beauty and excitement of Philadelphia. We had the pleasure of interacting with him every day and it was a history lesson of the beauty and excitement of Philadelphia.

Rob was a great host who was very accommodative. Rob's house is very nicely furnished and clean, with all the amenities we needed and more. He even allowed us to access the rooftop deck through his bedroom which had a spectacular view!

rob hall made me feel welcome. he picked me up at the airport when i inquired about public transport to his home- he lent me his laptop so i could email- his place his truly a home away from home- and that feeling is due to the warmth and generosity of the host
