Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Silvana was very sweet and helpful. She made herself available for questions, but she did not bother us at all. She made the check in and check out process very simple!
    The place is clean and she has amenities available like soap, towels, an iron etc. and she even brought us jugs of cold water.
    Her home is very close to Kelly Drive and Fairmount avenue, and walking distances from a lot of good restaurants. I definitely will recommend her to a friend!
    Parking was a tight squeeze but it is possible to find spots nearby.
    She stays on the first floor, but the rooms she rents out are located on the second and third floors, which makes them feel private and separated, more hotel-like.

  • I am so thankful of Silvana. She has a lovely doggy and always happy. She gave me a pot when I needed to cook. As a collector and vendor in Rice's flea market, she invited me to go and told me great experiences( our startup needed me to be a vendor too). Anyway, she has fantastic stories and always optimistic and altruistic. Hope to see her again!

  • It was very pleasant to stay at Silvana's place. She was very kind and helpful. The room was very clean, had large screen TV, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and other nice touches like tea, drinking water bottles, and even and umbrella. The location of the place was perfect for me, and I think it will be convenient for everyone because the neighborhood has many restaurants, coffee shops and stores and also you can get to center city in 10 min by on of these busses (7,32,48).

  • This room is spacious and comfortable. It faces a fairly busy street with bus traffic. If you are driving, be prepared to park a few blocks away. However, you can arrange with Silvana to park on her side walk temporarily to load and unload. The cleaning fee is a bit much as the room was not really all that "clean" and a lot of scented items are around in the room and bathroom. As mentioned by other reviewer, the walls are paper thin sound wise and thus all that is said or done is heard by the room next door and visa-versa.

  • I had a good stay at Silvana'a place. The room was nice and Silvana was very helpful. She gave me a map of the city and good directions for catching the bus.

  • We were in Philadelphia for a couple days, and found Silvana's AirBnB location to be pretty convenient to most sightseeing sites --- there's a bus that goes directly downtown less than a block away, it's is within short walking distance to the museum, and right across the river from the zoo. The room itself was spacious, clean, and the bedding was well enough for the winter. Note: the bed padding was extremely comfortable. You might have issues leaving it. We were the only guests at that point, and the rest of the place was very quiet and peaceful. Small refrigerator located in room, no access to kitchen but easy access to several restaurants around it. Our bus to leave Philadelphia was later than the check-in time, but Silvana was great about accommodating our travel plans. Overall, we would definitely book it again the next time we travel to Philadelphia!
