Ed’s place was a great experience. I appreciated him offering to make coffee during the visit and suggesting places to eat. Additionally, the decor in the entire apartment was amazing; it looks even better in person!

This was an awesome Airbnb experience! Ed was communicative and helpful and the place was comfortable, clean, and conveniently located. I especially loved the extra large towels, bottled water, and ability to come and go easily. Everything was super clean! Thank you Ed!

Want to sleep in a mini-art gallery, have a philoosphy professor as a host and two lovely cats in the mix? If so - Ed's is the place to be. A very nice private room, own keys, quiet and spacious and great breweries around. Ed really made us feel welcome without crowding us. Would absolutely visit again. Only reason not to go there is having a cat allergy i guess.

The room has everything you need, the bathroom is shared with Edward; all the house is very well cared and cleaned. Edward is a fantastic host, available and helpful. We enjoyed staying with him and speaking with him. The house is not so near to the center of Philadelphia but you can easily go there by bike or using uber. We recommend Edward and his house!

Edward User ProfileEdward is a superhost.

I'm a philosophy professor (no really). I teach in New Jersey and live in an old sheet metal fabrication works in Philadelphia. Most of my travel is for conferences and the like, and its definitely a perk of my profession that I get to see all sorts of interesting places.
