We enjoyed our stay here, which went largely without issue.
The Bad: we were informed a few days before our stay that the couch had been broken and so we were left with minimal seating options. We also were unable to locate a pump for the air mattress. Prospective visitors may also want to remember to buy their own toilet paper beforehand: there was none present on our arrival unfortunately. We also found the surrounding neighbourhood to be somewhat shady. Future visitors: note that the bed is also rather firm, which may/may not be a good thing depending on your taste.
The Good: the apartment is tastefully decorated, was very clean upon our arrival, and everything generally Just Worked. Despite being out of the country, Mahari was quick to answer all of our questions. Thanks for having us!
Thanks Stephen. We did not know that the unit was without toilet tissue as we were not notified. We have spoken with our cleaning company and informed them that this is unnaceptable. Thanks for letting us know. When I arrived today to check the shower it worked so I couldn't see an issue. It was a pleasure hosting you and we will be sure to have toilet tissue during your next stay. Also, the new sofa arrived today. My apologies again.
Mahari was a great host, very responsive and always willing to work with you. The apartment was just a described and within walking distance of the subway. There was always parking available but the apartment and plenty of good food options near by. Would recommend to anyone looking for a short or long term stay in Philly.
Nice, clean and good for the price. Always found street parking. The neighborhood was a little shady but I felt secure and safe.
I stayed for Made in America and was happy with my stay
Nous avons passé 2 jours dans ce très bel appartement. Bien équipé et surtout la machine a laver/sécher le linge est un reel plus (ainsi que le jacuzzi!) quand on fait un long voyage! L'arrivée dans l'appartement a été un peu mouvementée car l'hôte a changé le code d'accès de la porte le jour de notre arrivée et nous n'avions pas pu prendre connaissance du nouveau code par manque de connection sur le site airbnb. A quelques minutes près nous prenions un hôtel... finallement tout s'est bien passé! je conseil d'avoir une voiture pour se déplacer et pour les personnes ne supportant pas le bruit et la lumière pour dormir, vous risquez d'être un peu dérangé mais appart tres design et cosy! :)
It was great to be able to instant book same day and get an access code within minutes! Great white light in the daytime. Minimal kitchen utensils, so bring stuff if you want to cook. Very powerful AC. Water system allows one utility at a time--so bath, shower, and kitchen can't overlap.
