The Rodriguez Guest House specializes in long-term, affordable, luxury accommodations. Most of our guests are international students, artist and medical residents who stay between 1-6 months. Guests live as roommates and tidy up after themselves. Guests have to take care of basic tasks like taking the trash to the outside bin when it is full. This allows us to keep our prices affordable. Close to Temple University, Temple University Septa Regional Rail Stop,, York Dauphin Station - MFL.

The space

Quiet, bright room with a queen-sized bed. Desk and chair provided. Closet and dresser for items. You will notice the art theme of silly monsters painted by local artists through-out the room as well as a couple "easter eggs" by the home owner. This room is on the third-floor and shares the bath-room with the Color Pop Room which is next door.

Guest access

All common areas such as the kitchen, dining room, living room, loungue and laundry facility.

Interaction with guests

We do not live in the house but are available to help 24 hours per day.

Other things to note

We live in a typical urban neighborhood. Which is to say, on your way to our house, you will see some boarded up houses, some vacant lots and some trash in the streets. Some people are surprised by this but to 90% of the people in Philadelphia, this is quite normal. Nonetheless, it is a convenient, diverse, safe neighborhood.

Fabricio's place is conveniently located nearTemple University. The home is tastefully decorated and the room I stayed in was peaceful. Fabricio checked up on me once in a while to make sure things were going smoothly for me.

We enjoyed our initial stay at Fabricio's guest home so much that we extended for another month in a different available room. Fabricio's place has all the comforts of home, is safe, easily accessible to two public transit stations, clean, and thoughtful. Fabricio has excellent trustworthiness, communication, availability, and makes sure his guests feel completely welcome.

This room and home is really cool and unique. I also loved that the home has keypad entry so you never have to worry about forgetting your keys. The hosts are very hospitable and have everything you need there. this is an especially great choice for temple students as it is walking distance to the campus.Thanks for the lovely stay Fabricio!

I was an exchange student at Temple during the fall semester and I stayed all semester at Fabricio's place. I loved being there and I would definitely recommend it! When I arrived the neighborhood appeared, to be honest, a little worn down and unsafe but during my stay I didn't have a single problem even when walking home alone at night so I quickly felt completely comfortable in the area. Fabricio's place is very nice and one thing I really loved was the big kitchen that has everything you would need to make dinner, something that is really nice if you stay for a long time.

Response from Fabricio:
Thanks, Mikkel. We are glad you chose us. I am sad to see that you say that the area is "unsafe" while at the same time saying that you had no problems and were safe and comfortable. Despite this contradiction, I am glad to here that you enjoyed your stay with no problems. We've had dozens of guest, and like you, all with no safety problems. We ask everyone to read the full description of our house and neighborhood, as we did with you, before they book so they know what to expect. Let me know if there is any way we can be more clear about our neighborhood than that.

We are progressive activists and art lovers. This is is our home but we live in Washington DC most of the time. This 4 bedroom house is now the Rodriguez Guest House. We focus on providing affordable, long-term, luxury accommodations for foreign travelers, medical residents, grad students, student interns and artists on residency. The housemates live as respectful roommates, clean up after themselves in the common areas and handle basic tasks like taking out the trash. We provide "help-yourself" dish and laundry soap, towels and linens and paper products.
