Check In
  • This was fabulous. So close to everything. Marcia was super nice and friendly. I enjoyed getting to know her. Very accommodating! Studio was perfect.

  • Marcia's apartment was great. Exactly as described, clean and comfortable. In a really good location within walking distance of many of the main attractions as well as having plenty of places to eat and relax.

    Whilst Marcia was away her sisters greeted me and my partner and were very pleasant.

    We'd definitely stay here again if we go back to Philadelphia.

  • Great experience! The neighborhood was quiet and the apartment was clean, lovely and spacious. Marcia was an incredible host and above all an amazing person, always smiling and kind with us. She borrowed her own bike for a day, she even gave us a ride to the train station the day we left the apartment and she told us funny stories about previous guests! We definitely recommend Marcia's place!

  • We enjoyed staying with Marcia and her sisters. The small private apartment in the basement of their lovely brick home was the ideal location on Fairmount Street- much better than the noisy and crowded historic district. The number 33 bus takes you directly downtown and is less than a block from the apartment. Marcia was very helpful and we ate at several local restaurants she recommended and appreciated hints on museum discounts and places you can bring your own wine. This was our first experience with air bnb and a good on. THE flat has a toaster fridge and coffee machine with coffee but no breakfast.

  • Marcia was very friendly and gave us an excellent orientation to the neighborhood and the city. She provided printed flyers and a variety of helpful information. The studio apartment is in the basement of a row house located in a very good location close to museums and restaurants, so very convenient for our needs.

  • We only stayed two nights at Marcias house, but we really enjoyed it. It took us only a 15 min walk, or a few stops with the bus to all Sightseeingspots.
    When we arrived, Marcia wasn't at home and so we met her sisters, who were all very nice and helpful. Marcia and her sisters gave us many good advises.

  • The hosts were all very warm and welcoming. And the apartment was as described -- clean and in a nice location. Close to the subway, and with restaurants in walking distance. Would stay here again.

  • Excelente anfitriona ! Marcia es simpática y cordial, el estudio está bien ubicado, el barrio es muy lindo, el bus para el centro en la esquina. El estudio es cómodo, todo nos encantó. No tiene cocina propia pero sí microondas, pava eléctrica, frigobar y elementos básicos como platos, cubiertos, tazas. Es muy recomendable

  • Stayed at this lovely location this past weekend while in Philly for the Dad Vail Regatta. Marcia was a fabulous host - timely responses to email, worked with our shifting schedule - greeted our arrival and provided lots of recommendations re both her neighborhood and happenings in town.
    Location is in a fun part of town with lots of dining options, down the street from Eastern State Penitentiary, easy walk to the Art Museum. Extra bonus of parking spot (although weekend on street parking is not an issue).
    Next time we're in Philly, we'll be sure to be back!
