Most adorable studio apartment in Philadelphia. A great studio on one of the most prestigious blocks of Philadelphia. One block from Rittenhouse Square. This is the safest and nicest neighborhood in Philadelphia. Close to everything! Apartment has a small kitchenette with full size fridge, gas range/oven, microwave,coffee maker, and toaster. A small bathroom with a bathtub. A queen size bed and a queen sofa bed.
The building is very secure! A block from Rittenhouse Square and close to everything! 10-15 minutes from 30th street amtrak station by taxi. A bus runs right from the corner of locust to the historic areas in old city and to the convention center! Lots of nearby amenities like 7-eleven, a great produce market ( maxx's), and excellent beer store ( food and friends), and several restaurants minutes from your doorstep! Like the new implant of new york's shake shack!
This is a great apartment in the nicest area of Philadelphia on one of the best blocks! Close to everything! Everything is simply at your doorstep a few minutes by walking, a bus ride, cab ride, or quick hop on the trolley!
All of my properties are available long term from one month to 2 years. Please ask about discounted long term stays and discounts for repeat guests!
Iron. ironing board, hair dryer are available
For an extra fee small to medium dogs are permitted in this property. Please email me for further info!
The laundry is in the building next door 2017 Locust and is coin-operated.
Parking is very difficult in Philadelphia. This is a city after all. There is free parking on the street from 8pm-8am, but after that it is only free for two hours during the day and they will ticket you immediately. The TV show parking wars was based filmed in Philadelphia for this reason. Parking garages are plentiful and nearby and range anywhere from 20-50 a day. You do NOT need a car to experience Philadelphia. Live like a local and leave the car at home!
The entire apartment. This is a private apartment you will not be sharing the bathroom or kitchen. There is laundry in the building next door, but it is coin-operated and you must provide your own soap.

Other Things to Note

Turn off a/c when you leave for the day. Unit is very efficient and will cool off apt as soon as you return! Please be mindful of others in the building and philadelphia noise ordinances. If you open any windows please make sure to close and lock them.
Place all trash in the trashcan upon departure. If you need to there are extra trash bags in the glass cabinet on the bottom. If there is more than one trash bag, please dispose of trash in the dumpster directly behind the building. Unfortunately due to commercial zoning, the building does not recycle, but you can recycle using the black trash can on the corner that recycles glass, plastic and paper.
Wash all dishes/glasses that you have used , extra dish soap under counter, and place in dish drain.
Das Appartment ist klein aber ausreichend für einen kurzen Aufenthalt und für drei Personen.
Die dritte Person, die auf dem Schlafsofa geschlafen hat musste die Tagesdecke als Bettdecke benutzen.
Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, jedoch leider teilweise nicht sauber (Mikrowelle) gewesen.
Das Bad ist auch sehr klein aber ebenfalls ausreichend. Nur lagen überall schwarze Haare, die nicht von uns kamen.
Hervorzuheben ist die sehr gute Lage des Appartments. Man hat alles super erreicht.
Great Place, Great Neighborhood, Great host communication & Service. No problems… Would definitely stay again.
A great apartment in a remarkable location! Our group of three fit comfortably in this apartment. Andrea was incredibly responsive to our questions and the office below was available to store our belongings prior to check in. The pictures posted are a great represention of what the apartment offers. Very easy to walk around everywhere with so many food and drink options nearby. Will definitely recommend, thanks Andrea!
Really beautiful apartment in a great location. Andrea is a great host who was very accommodating! Will stay again for sure!
We had a great time at Andrea's apartment. It is well located in a pretty and safe neighbourhood with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Good public transport links are close by and you can also walk to the main tourist areas of the city in half an hour or so. Andrea was communicative and helpful, all round a lovely person to deal with. The only negative about this flat for us was that you could hear a fair bit of noise from the flat upstairs, but that is just due to the building being fairly old and wasn't within Andrea's control. We would definitely stay there again!
Nice space in great location close to Rittenhouse square and many restaurants! Door handles were a little tricky (both to the apartment and bathroom) but not an issue. Tip-wifi network and password are written on the router on the floor (ignore the password written downstairs, we couldn't get this to work). Andrea was quite hands off but we were fine with this approach.

About the Host, Andrea
Airbnb is a great way to live like a local. I have a range of properties from luxe to bargain. I'm also always happy to help with any questions! I also offer bargains for long term stays and repeat guests!
I have been interviewed for articles on airbnb in the philadelphia inquirer, slate, open forum, and featured in apartment therapy.
I've lived in Tokyo, DC and the Pine barrens. I have traveled all over. My favorites are Nashville, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Toronto, and Maine.
I have lived in Philadelphia since 2002. I grew up visiting Philly as well. So, I know all the touristy stuff along with the cool stuff. I know the best places to eat in Philly. I know the places to miss as well! I'm a prolific yelper...
