The building was built in 1890, very old. The appearance of the building and hallways should be overlooked by the care we put into the apartment which has old features too. Your comfort during your stay is very important to us. We are reachable and can address any concern within a couple of hrs if need be.
Public transportation (SEPTA) buses right outside of apartment if you wish to visit Penns Landing, Old City, Liberty Bell or Independence Hall. Walking distance to 30th Street Station. Rite-Aid located next to apartment (open 24/7).
One thing I would like to emphasize is how quiet this apartment is for the city. You occasionally can hear the neighbors in the building, but can't hear traffic due to its location on the inside of the building adjacent to the courtyard. Truly a gem if you're looking for a professional and serene atmosphere while still being in the city.
Please bring your shampoo and bath needs.
The only people allowed in the apartment are the ones that I am told about when renting. When receiving the keys, please provide proper id of any guests to be photocopied while occupying the apartment. If I am unable to meet you upon arrival, then I will give you a combination to get into the apartment where you will find a check-in list. I will come by when I'm available if you need further assistance or would like to be shown around.
Smoking is allowed in the courtyard, but please don't smoke in the room. Everything is pretty easy going, just treat the place and myself with respect and I will do the same for you.
I am a Computer Engineer that works for a local actuarial company. I love traveling and experiencing all the world has to give. Airbnb has allowed me to reach out in a more personal way both to and as a visitor. I much prefer this approach to a hotel chain.
