Marcia's place was exactly as expected. It was the perfect size for two of us, clean, and four blocks from a subway stop. It was also conveniently located near a train station. The location was fairly convenient for activities - we walked to most tourist places which took about 30-40 mins. All the hosts were friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here for a great deal!
We had a wonderful time staying here. Marcia and her sisters were very friendly. We felt welcomed. The room is spacious and is close to Central and all transportation. Thank you again for having us.
Marcia is a very friendly and helpful person. She provided us with a lot of information regarding sightseeing, resturants and public transport in Philadelphia. The apartment is really nice and clean. It is perfectly located! We could walk Downtown in 15-20 minutes, but there was also a bus leaving every 10 minutes right across the street. Marcia made us feel like home and we enjoyed our stay very much! Highly recommendable!
This was my first airbnb stay, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but Marcia made it an awesome experience! She had great communication and worked with my arrival time. Marcia met us as we arrived and showed us around the place, but we were alone after that, so it really felt like "our place." :) It was exactly as she describes: large and charming, very nicely decorated. The bed were very comfortable. This was our first time to Philadelphia and the studio was convenient to everything! There was a great little market right across the street (Tela's) where we had a quick bite to eat in the morning and a lot of great restaurants within walking distance. Additionally, as we were driving to Philadelphia, there was a lot of street parking available. I really can't say enough about the studio and the location! We had a fantastic time and would plan on coming back if it is still available...highly recommend it to anyone!!
Marcia's location is pretty accessible. It is near the Eastern State Penitentiary, a tourist site.
Marcia's studio is clean and cozy, just what we wanted. Marcia has been accommodating to our needs (allowed us to check in early). She has also been very helpful, giving us tips getting around the places and advice on what we should visit.
Marcia and her sisters are absolutely lovely and happy to help. the location is very close to logan square, making it easy for us to travel around the city. we (a party of 3) all had a bed and 2 pillows each, which was great. However, some blankets were not thick enough for the winter. The wifi had some issues but Marcia arranged for it to be fixed the following day and there were no problems since. Their cats are also so friendly.
Nuestra experiencia en el hogar de Marcia fue genial. La casa esta muy bien ubicada y en una linda zona. Tanto Marcia como su hermana Diddy son encantadoras y muy amigables, siempre atentas y predispuestas para ayudarnos. Incluso el dia de nuestra partida nos llevo Marcia en su auto con nuestras maletas hasta la estacion de autobus, es una anfitriona increible, diez puntos Marcia!!! Muy recomendable!!!
