À propos de ce logement
Please be sure to read the entire description as this is a building shared with other AirBnB renters. My home is near Drexel University and 30th St. Station and only a few blocks from Megabus, Amtrak, and NJ Train lines. The area features historic and peaceful ambiance, tree lined streets and close proximity to Center City and major attractions (Zoo, Art Museum, Boat House row, etc). You can find bike share rentals nearby, plenty of places to eat, and the amazing Drexel Park city views.
Please note this building is shared with other AirBnB renters and the bathroom is shared with 2 other rooms, but it is cleaned daily and guests rarely cross each other's paths. The open and comfortable space is reminiscent of a Zen Garden with its large canopy bed, comfortable seating area, dresser, flat screen TV, ceiling fan, dining table and open windows. You will appreciate the character of the room and all of the details that will make your stay feel relaxed. The shared bathroom space is just a few steps from your room and is well appointed.

I am happy to suggest the best restaurants and nightlife in the city as well and museums and tourist spots. I can also offer suggestion for hidden gems all around the city for adventurous guests who want to explore off the beaten path.
One of Philadelphia’s most beautiful best-kept secrets, lovely, leafy Powelton Village is characterized by its unmistakable mix of stately houses and quirky, colorful businesses.
In fact, the area features so many incredibly preserved examples of movements in Victorian architecture that its designed historic district, plus a number of individual residences, are protected by the National Register of Historic Places.
The neighborhood possesses a spirit all its own, a personality bolstered by its friendly and widely diverse population. The area’s most enduring touchstones include its dedication to political activism and its healthy population of creatives, both new and old. Prolific artists’ groups and dance companies were drawn to the area thanks to the availability of former industrial spaces along Lancaster Avenue, one of the last thoroughfares in America to feature a fully operational streetcar system.
Charming cafes, eateries, and convenience stores are a stroll away as you pass historic homes and Drexel University's beautiful campus. Outside of the neighborhood you will find the Zoo, Museum of Art, Mutter Museum, Barnes Foundation, Rodin Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary, Please Touch Museum, The Franklin Institute, and the Penn Museum just to name a few.
The home is located in close proximity to 30th Street Station, Megabus, BoltBus and NJ Transit lines. It is easily accessible via trolley, subway (Market-Frankford Blue line) and public transportation. There is also a bike share available for those who like to pedal around the city. The area is extremely safe and walk-able, with Drexel University's blue light alert on most corners and 24 hour security patrol. You will get a peaceful and refreshing nights sleep while in the busy city.

Hello everyone! Thanks for visiting. I have lived in Philadelphia for over 10 years and really love the city. I work as a social worker and am into travel, fitness, art and music. I'm currently working towards completing my Masters and looking forward to a Doctorate program. I am very easy going and love meeting people. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge of Philadelphia with others and hosting guests who are visiting. I'm a great tour guide and can always make recommendations of where to go and what to do during your stay. I look forward to meeting you!
