The space

The space is an entire 1-bed apartment that suits 1-2 people perfectly. It is on the ground floor and has access to a small patio. There is a living/dining room area with a couch and dining table, a full kitchen with all amenities, a bathroom with a washer and dryer, and a bedroom with a queen sized bed. For storage, there will be closet space and drawers available. It's around the corner from a convenience store and steps away from the shops, cafes and restaurants of center city philadelphia! The street itself is very quiet though!

Interaction with guests

I will be available by phone/email during your stay.

The neighbourhood

Rittenhouse square is one of the most desireable residential areas in Philadelphia. It is quiet and beautiful, yet very close to the more boisterous parts of town with the best restaurants, lively bars and great shopping. Just two blocks down is the Schuylkill river with miles of beautiful biking/jogging trails along it.

Getting around

The place is a 15 minute walk from a major train station (30th street) and 10 minute walk to the subway. Busses are available all around--steps away. These are the best bet for getting to any spot in center city, though many things are walking distance! I work in University City and the commute is a fast and pleasant one just across the bridge (bike, walk, or quick bus ride!)

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure staying in Anna's apartment recently. Overall, we were very happy with our stay. She provided very clear instructions on how to access the apartment and was very responsive to our questions. Her apartment is situated in great location. Restaurants, bars, and other great sites are within walking distance. We both appreciated the toiletries provided as well as the tea! I would highly recommend Anna's apartment for your stay in Philly.

We had a great time in Anna's apartment. The place were accurately described, clean and well located. The neighborhood is beautiful and close to the center and Old City. Perfect for a weekend in the city! She was really nice in providing us maps of the city, information about public transportation... and also coffee, tea and milk!

Anna's apartment is great! It's located in one of the best neighbourhoods in Philly, near the beautiful Rittenhouse square and at a walking (or biking) distance to almost all interesting spots. The place is spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen is convenient and the room is in the basement, pretty large, quite and fresh (we were there in August). Moreover, Anna was very helpful. She allowed us to extend the stay and was always reachable by . The 1 week discount makes this apt. an excellent quality/price option.

Anna was a great host from the beginning of our travels. Clearly communicated by text and she met us at the apartment to give us the keys. Our flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we kept in touch and Anna was very flexible with her time.The apartment was clean and very spacious for a 1 bedroom place. We were a little surprised to find the bedroom accessible only by a steep staircase, but we got used to that. The location was perfect and we found our coffee shops within walking distance! I would highly recommend staying at Anna's place.

Great apartment! Spacious and right by Rittenhouse Sq, a nice part of the city. Anna was super helpful and told me about a bus right outside the front door that takes you directly to Old City, the river, and the Independence mall area.

This apartment was perfect! The pictures were very accurate and it was even a little bigger than I anticipated. I stayed here alone and felt very safe. The neighborhood is great and in a wonderful location. Anna was very easy to get in touch with and a great hostess; I really appreciated the toiletries and maps/guides of Philadelphia. I would definitely stay here again.
