Several bedrooms are available in my house, great location!

There are some galleries, sweet and cute bakeries, bars nearby!

This is a cozy, bright and airy room in University City. Comfortabe and neat bedroom on the third floor equipped with AC, chair, Study desk, cabinet and a big closet. Brand new hardwood flooring and refresh finished room, which is really lovely and clean!

If you travel on your own or come to Philly with dear someone,enjoy the double bed( NEW Plush mattress) on the third floor, you should share the bath room with another room.

If you need a queen size bed for two, you can navigate to the following two links:

They are private rooms in the same house.

Lynn and Syd are busy, sometimes absent, but nothing important than you have good stay here. It may have other guests in the rooms, please keep the place relatively quiet.

The Neighborhood

My house is located in an extremely safe area! ( There is a Police station across the street and the area is patrolled by guards of University City)

Getting around

Though I cannot say it's the center of university city, just look at how convenient it is!

Only 5 mins walking to the 40-market Street subway. 15 mins walking to 30-market amtrak train station. 5 mins walking to the University of Drexel, 10 mins walking to Upenn, 15 mins walking to HUP! 20 Mins walking to Art Museum! If you wanna go to center city, just 5mins walking plus 8 mins subway time!

Other Things to Note

Free wifi, free water and tea. The tea room is on the corner of the bathroom on the second floor, help yourself to fetch the ice water from freezer in the kitchen.

  • The room is clean! Although Lynn was not here, I still feel comfortable while staying.

  • Lynn & Syd Lai are very nice and the house is so comfortable that I want to book it again for my next trip. It was my first experience for using Airbnb to book a room for rest. And it will be a good start. Thanks for Lynn & Syd Lai ' s hospitality.

  • Lynn has done an incredible job with each room making them unique and beautiful. Lynn and Syd's home was exquisite, the bedrooms tidy and comfortable, and bathrooms clean and even stocked with shampoo and body wash for their guests. When visiting Philadelphia, I would stay here again, and recommend it to others, without hesitation. This is a lovely place to stay.

  • USMLE CS takers, look no further. Save a lot of money and book here. It's only a 10-minute walk from the testing center and close to everything else you might need (food, convenience stores). No problems with the room whatsoever. Would stay again.

  • Lynn and Syd's home was very clean. My sister and I stayed one night and we were very comfortable going in and out. The room had everything we needed and we felt safe and taken care of. Lynn was always available to answer questions. There was a Britta filter in the room, two desks, a nice window and a spacious closet. The house is kept in lovely order and receives nice, natural light. The bed was very comfortable! I would recommend this space to others.

As a host: Welcome to stay! Syd works in Philly, Lynn is a graduate student in NYC. There are some vacancy rooms with the convenient location for some months. We think it's a good idea to offer them for the people who really need. We don't make much noise and we are not party animal. Hope you are the ones who really trustful, neat and won't disturb us either. How can we tell you how much we love our home and how lovely it is! Hope you will like it too and enjoy your trip when you stay here! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ As a traveler: We are enthusiastic travelers. My family have changed several cities and countries during the last 10 years. Even after we got married,we still enjoy to explore new places. When we are travelling, BNB seems attractive and interesting----great location, not so expensive, clean, more comfortable and most important, it just like at home. We grew up in China. Life to us is a kind of mystic travelling, sometimes you have no choice but accept the challenges. Keeping the room clean and neat wherever we are! :D
