About this listing
Enjoy a good night's rest on a queen size memory foam mattress in your private room. My apartment is in Chinatown, which is a short walk to Center City, City Hall, Historic District, Pennsylvania Convention Center, and tons of restaurants, cafes, and bars.
I designed my apartment with a Scandinavian and Minimalist approach.
You will have access to your private bedroom which includes a queen size memory foam mattress, a laptop table, a chair, a desk lamp, and a closet with hangers. An air mattress is also available.
Towels, linens, mini 100% olive oil bathing soap bars, shampoo and conditioner are provided.
Feel free to use the bathroom, kitchen, and living room.
Interaction with guests
I enjoy meeting all of my guests when possible.
Welcome to Chinatown, which is part of Center City in Philadelphia.
There are tons of Asian cuisine restaurants, bars, and karaoke lounges to choose from in the neighborhood. The Pennsylvania Convention Center is across the street. The bustling Reading Terminal Market is only a 4 minute walk from the apartment. If you're into "speakeasy bars", there is one around the corner. My apartment is also a short walk to Hahnemann University Hospital and City Hall.
Everything you need is pretty much in walking distance!
The best way to get around Chinatown is walking. However, buses and SEPTA subway are only steps away. I also recommend Uber or Lyft.
There is free street parking around my apartment from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. For free parking lots, please ask!
Other things to note
I may host other guests in my bedroom when I am traveling.
A comedy theater recently opened downstairs my apartment. The bedrooms are not really affected by the noise level, but earplugs are available if you want them.

Late check out without my prior approval will result in losing your entire security deposit. I don't want to take your security deposit, so please check out on time. It is also appreciated if you notify me upon checking out so I can start cleaning services right away.
- Please turn off all the lights and heat before leaving the apartment. Save electricity, the planet, and my wallet.

I have had the privilege to backpack 11 countries in Europe, 5 countries in Central America, and 4 countries in Southeast Asia. Some of my favorite cities include Hong Kong, Stockholm, Hoi An, Barcelona, New York City, and last but not least, Philadelphia.
To share some of the things I love, I enjoy fika and dim sum with friends, Vietnamese cuisine, bungee jumping, and reading. Lastly, I enjoy creating and sharing experiences with people from all walks of life.
