Please remove your shoes at the front door to help keep the carpets, and the house, clean and enjoyable.
I needed a place to stay that was close to the Art Museum for the 2015 Hot Chocolate 15k. Location was super convenient and easy to find, easy walking distance to lots of places to eat and the Drexel parking garage. Alicia was very thorough in her instructions on how to pick up keys and her house rules were completely reasonable. Five stars for Alicia. :)
Great communication, easy to get to the apartment, everything as described. The bed was comfy, the room was quiet, and Alicia was really nice.
Alicia is a nice host and coordinated my late check-in. The space is confirtable to stay. Has good neighborhood in the university city. Public transportation is convenient with bus stops within 5 minutes walk and subway station around 10-15 minutes walk.
Absolutely brilliant house. Beautiful and cozy. I'd like to recommend it to everybody.
