My stay at Silvana's studio in Rittenhouse was amazing! I didn't place the reservation for the apartment till a couple of days before my arrival.(1.Instant book is amazing! 2. A lot of people didn't seen to rent out during the week.) I was extremely excited when I did get the place and I saw it because it was closer to the downtown area and Rittenhouse Square then I had gathered from the maps! I would definitely stay here again. The building itself is nice, the front desk staff was very friendly and the apartment was clean. Plus the view from the apartment was lovely!
Silvana was very accommodating. The place is in a great location! There are lots of bars and restaurants within a few blocks. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. It got hot, so we opened the window, which made it a bit loud. I recommend either packing light pjs to accommodate the heat or earplugs to accommodate the noise.
Great location. Parking was easy to find in the nearby garages. Just plan on spending at least 20$ for overnight. The apartment was well furnished and the building was easy to navigate. Silvana was in contact with us and made checkin a breeze. Just a forewarning, the apartment uses steam heat during the winter, so it can get toasty. Not a complaint, just something of which to be aware. The location easily makes up for the heat.
I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Silvana's! The apartment was clean, well-appointed, quiet, and in an absolutely perfect location; the building strikes me as a safe, friendly place mostly populated by professionals and young college grads. Would happily stay here again, and will enthusiastically recommend this apartment to others looking for a convenient crash pad in downtown Philly.
Silvana was a great host! She also told us some great Philly places to visit. The condo was in a central location. It had everything we needed - towels, new bed sheets, and a tv. It could fit four people and the place looked secure. We had no problems at our stay and would recommend this place to anyone. The neighbours were also very friendly! Thanks for hosting us!
Photos of apartment must be quite old as the unit requires maintenance and refurbishing. Lots of clutter, windows don't seal so there was a lot of noise during the winter month when wind was blowing. The furniture was quite worn, dirty and stained. The stove has a gas leak. Towels don't match, the key fob to enter the building was lost and owner failed to communicate this item to us at check in. As a result of the lost key fob, the security guard was upset and indicated that the owner should have checked us in. The vents need cleaning, there was a lot of dust on the vents. Paint and up keep a MUST. Plus : great location but not worth the cost because unit is in need of attention. Owner is readily available by phone, the unit was available for early check in and the transaction to rent the apartment was without issue. Sheets and towels were clean. In retrospect, for $120 per night winter rate would have sought a hotel room. Overall? False advertising.
Photos were not representative of the actual apartment. There was no computer, desk, or chair, and the TV was small. Stove would not light.
The apartment is in a great location. We had an awesome time and made good friends with the owner of the pizza restaurant that is attached to the building. His name is Victor, and anyone staying at Silvana's should stop down at his place and say hi to this wonderful guy. His restaurant/bar has great food and drinks and most of all the people are super nice and accommodating. Teh apartment itself is perfect for 2-3 people. The heating system is controlled by the building and therefore there is no personal control. When we walked in the room for the first time it was HOT!!! We basically had to leave the windows open the whole time, even though it was 30 degrees outside. The water also smells very sulfur-y... but we got over it. All in all it's a great apartment in an awesome location surrounded by so many good restaurants, pubs, and friendly people.
Great location! The apartment is super convenient to Rittenhouse Square which appears to be the most lively/fun neighborhood of Philly - great restaurants and shops all right there. The apt. is also within walking distance (long walk but do-able) to U. Penn. Silvana made the process easy to get access to the apt. and communicated well throughout the process. The apt. is well stocked with towells. If I was going to quibble about anything, it might be the "awesome view"? The apt. had very sparten furnishings (less than what was in the photo - no desk), but all the basics you really need. It works as a functional crash pad.
Great location, apt very well kept and clean, overall a nice experience and I recommend this flat for short stays in Philadelphia. Silvana was very quick in replying to any of my questions. Maybe as other reviews already mention the photos should be updated.
