Overall, the stay at Will's apartment in Philadelphia was very disappointing for my friends and me. When making the reservation I underscored cleanliness as a concern because of reviews by previous guests. Our host stated he'd "cleaned and dusted" the unit before our arrival. What we found indicated he'd done so very superficially. We had to give the bathroom floor and kitchen sink a good cleaning and borrowed a vacuum to clean the carpet. The shower curtain and shower tub tile were disgustingly stained with black mildew. The bathroom floor was coated with dust and loose hair. the carpet is spotted and in need of proper cleaning. Accumulated dust was visible in the corners and woodwork. Internet/wi-fi was listed as amenity but we couldn't access it. When I contacted him for help our host was unresponsive. We paid extra for one person but the air bed deflated after on hour of laying on it.
The photos posted on the site were either taken right after the carpet had been cleaned or before he started living there so they are not accurate depictions of the state of the place. Five stars for location, zero stars for condition. The average would be 2.5 but unresponsiveness, uncleanliness and misrepresentation have a price...1.5 stars. Giving him one star is extremely generous.
This worked for us. Centrally located, easy to get in and out, helpful door staff. I would advise future guests to insist that the bathroom be professionally cleaned and to ask Wil to change the shower curtain, which was black with mildew. Light sleepers may want earplugs; it's in a busy commercial district, and loud trash trucks come every other day around 6 am.
Great - William was extremely helpful and flexible with our arrivals and departures. Great location and beautiful building. Would definitely stay again.
William was extremely helpful and a great host! We booked with William last minute, and he was out of town, but made it work. We checked-in and out with ease on our own time. His apartment was in a great location, close to a lot of late-night entertainment, but within walking distance to the historical sites. Thank you very much for a great stay!
This apartment was perfect for our needs. We came down to drink, eat, and go to the mütter museum. We were within walking distance of everything.
Wil made check in and out very easy. He was very flexible and responded to my texts quickly when I had questions. I would definitely stay here again!
Great location. William was very easy to contact. Check in was convenient. The apartment is nice but the bathroom was messy.
The appartement was well situated, but the place was very dirty ,the household has not been done before our arrival, we were very disappointed, it was unpleasant.
Great location, reasonable price, central to amazing shopping, restaurants, Rittenhouse square and public transportation. William was easy to get in contact with, and flexible with times, and the front desk staff of the building is very helpful and friendly. The apartment is spacious and could easily fit 4 people if necessary (we were only 2). Overall great stay!
William was very accommodating to us during our stay in Philadelphia. He let us check in and out at our convenience and even let us stay an extra night with very short notice. The apartment was very cozy and clean and in the most perfect location you could ask for. There are so many great restaurants and bars surrounding his apartment in a very safe area. I could not have asked for a better experience with Airbnb. I would recommend William's apartment to anyone looking to stay downtown. It beats the hotels any day. Thanks again Will!
Apartment was clean and at a good central location. William was very flexible and easy to contact. Recommend for a quick stay in the city!
William, was easy and pleasant guest. Checked in/out on time. All house rules has been observed. We will be happy to host William again.
