Hi we split time in and out of New York therefore this apartment is often available.
We had a great time staying here. I had not been to Philadelphia and chose the apartment largely for location. It proved to be a great choice! We walked to many of the touristy sites (a little bit of a walk but a great way to see Center City, etc.) as well as Rittenhouse Square and the river. The apartment is located in a cute residential area and we were able to find some free street parking a few streets south. The apartment itself is old but nice and everything was very clean and user-friendly. Towels and shampoo as well as little unnecessary (but great to have!) things like a coffee maker and hair dryer were provided which made us feel right at home. We also loved the brochure that Rob and Metra left, telling us about great finds in the area. This was actually my first Airbnb experience and I hope all future experiences are as good as this one!
Very convenient location, apartment was clean and Rob made it very easy to check in and out. Would recommend to anyone.
excellent communication and very accommodating, answered any question i had. very close to lots of shopping/food. providing Netflex was awesome during the down time. definitely a great spot to stay!
Rob and Metra were great hosts. The space is cozy and was good for two of us. The location is perfect.
Process for check-in/key pickup was a little unclear, so we ended up just showing up and Rob was there to let us in and show us around. The studio is as the pictures show. It's in a great, convenient location. Perfect for a couple of days in Philadelphia (though we only stayed one night). We thought the place could have been a little cleaner, but overall decent place to stay for the price.
The place was great! Clean and comfortable. Robert was there to greet us upon arrival and departure. He made us feel very much at home. Highly recommend the place!
Rob was great--left clear instructions about how to get to room, and it was clean and as described in the description. Room was in a very nice area of Philly, and within walking distance to many restaurants. I had to leave a few hours after the listed check-out time, and Rob was extremely accommodating to this. Overall, a fantastic experience. Thank you :)
I booked the unit the morning of (I was crossing my fingers hoping I found something available) and I bumped into Rob/Metra's Studio. I put in my request for the room at about 6am and Rob responded within 20 minutes!!!! They let me know because of the last minute request they wouldn’t be able to do their usual light tidying up of the place. They left the option up to me on whether I wanted to continue with my reservation… I figured “what the heck.” The studio was in the Rittenhouse Square area of the city so I had many options for Down Town Philly night life activities. Once I got there I called Rob on the phone and he instructed me on where everything was and gave me the option of utilizing his other unoccupied unit!
Our host was generous and made us feel very welcomed. The apartment was cozy and great walking distance to everything. We will def be staying again at our next Philly visit.
Rob and Metra kindly allowed me to check in early, and so they put me in a different apartment in the same building. It was a studio with all the necessary amenities-- no central heat, but a powerful floor heater. It is an old building and the facilities-- particularly the bathroom-- reflect that. It is in a great location-- very close to Rittenhouse Square. Rob and Metra were extremely helpful and easy to communicate with.
Rob & Metra where perfect guests, they left the place spotless. They where clear in communication about about times and prompt to respond. I hope they enjoyed Casa Malan as much as I enjoyed having them as my guests . They are welcome back anytime! Recommended 100% in every way.
Robert stayed with us for a few days and I found him to be a fine guest. He left the room clean and was quiet and respectful during his stay.
