Everething was OK
Good: Medi was very patient with me when making the reservation. I had many very specific questions, and he didn't get tired of me asking so many. He was also easy to reach when needed. The unit is in an incredibly convenient place . We were easily able to accommodate the restricted on-street parking situations (free 8p-8a, feed the meter after 8am) There is also a garage across the street (expensive) and a surface lot 2 blocks over (less expensive). Didn't have to use either. The unit was VERY quiet! We were there 4 nights and the only outdoor noise that would be considered disruptive was some bucket boys one night (only played a short time around 11pm), a neighbor dog barking after 8am one day, and one night there were sirens going by a few blocks over. Noise issue out of Medi's control: major construction project next door, heavy equipment started at 7am weekdays. There is a small Rite Aid across the street, as well as a WaWa convenience store that had extremely good coffee, no need to go to the Starbucks a short two blocks over. We did not need to visit the Whole Foods on the next block. We felt very safe there, and there is a police station across the street.
Not so good: Upon arriving our shoes were sticking to the hardwood floor in some places. In other places we were sliding due to some sort of oil on the floor (almost fell a couple times). Husband spent a good half hour trying to clean it up with paper towels (no mop seen). The bed had a bottom sheet, no top sheet. Texted Medi who said he could try to get more linens. We decided to borrow linens from the people we were in town visiting, so declined Medi's offer. The bedroom has light-filtering (not darkening) shades, so the room was not dark dark at night (wouldn't bother people who don't need blackout to sleep). The bathtub had a wet, nonstick mat on the bottom, looked mildewed. We removed it as we didn't want to step on it, there were globs of hair underneath. We bought Lysol wipes to clean the tub. There were plenty of towels, they smelled musty. The bedroom closet was locked. The hall closet was full of various unorganized items, so we felt perhaps this closet was also not meant to be used. There was no dresser, so we lived out of our suitcases.
All in all, we would probably stay there again.
The neighborhood was great, a 15 minute walk from city center and a ~$10 cab ride.
Medi was incredibly accommodating and his apartment was beautiful!
The place is very nice. Apartment will make you feel relaxed once you walked in and the view is amazing. This is my first time using Airbnb. I can say Medi is a very welcoming and nice person, he gave me many advises and told me kinds of details. I had a great weekend at Medi's place.
Medi's place was everything that we expected and more. Medi was very communicative throughout the whole process. He was out of town however he was in constant contact. We had several questions about restaurants & parking and he was knowledgeable about the area and the city in general. We were in Philadelphia for a race and his place was perfect for location since everything was in walking distance and the start line was right around the corner. Having a grocery store, Whole Foods, less than a block away was very convenient, as well. We felt very comfortable and safe in his neighborhood during all parts of the day. The building has a receptionist/security guard manning the locked front doors around the clock. The apartment was very clean and just as described. It has a great view of the city too. If we run the race next year or visit Philadelphia again we will definitely stay here again! Thanks Medi for the great experience!
We had a really positive experience dealing with Medi and staying at his place in Philadelphia. Medi was quick to communicate with us and we had no delays on the arrival or departure. His place was very well located and was literally minutes from the major museums. Some of the more distant locations (e.g. liberty bell) were only about a 15 to 20 minute walk or a cheaper than $10 cab ride (the cabs were surprisingly affordable).
The place is very comfortable and really well located. It's a beautiful building with great amenities, a fantastic view (we could plan our trips using it) and 24 hour (as far as we can tell) security and front desk service.
Parking was free on the street after 8 and there was all day free parking (as far as we could tell) just a block or two away. There was also a really nice and well monitored lot just up from the apartment (near the Eastern State Penn historical site) that we chose (reasonable with in-and-out multi-day pricing) because there was a large event using up the free parking for the most part.
I would not hesitate to stay again at Medi's and I would strongly recommend it for any singles or couples coming into the area. We've stayed all over the world on AirBNB and this was another great stay.
Medi was a very gracious host and very accommodating. Apartment was very nice and the location is amazing. Great north facing view of the city.
I was looking for some place near the Pennsylvania Conference center and I found the perfect place! I found Medi a wonderful and friendly host. He adjusted his schedule and made sure that he was there when I get to his apartment. His apartment was very clean,comfortable and near to all the major place.
I would recommend this place and give all five star to this place!
I enjoyed staying here. The host was VERY welcoming and even helped me find parking upon my arrival. The apartment itself has beautiful views of the city and is located in a very nice/convenient area. I will definitely be staying here the next time I come to Philly. Medi is a really nice guy and a great host, I would definitely recommend this place!
