Stayed here over 3 consecutive weekends. It is in a great position to see all of Philadelphia’s sights, and we walked to literally every sight we wanted to see.
There is a 7/11 next door and multiple shops nearby for shopping and eating and supplies.
Apartments are very well furnished and comfortable.
All assistance and advice from Stay Alfred was generally very efficent and prompt.
The only downfall - being right in the heart of town, there is quite a bit if street noise - both late at night with various different types and happenings on the street, and very early in the morning with workers. Being a light sleeper, sleep at times was difficult, earplugs helped.
Would definitely recommend however and would use Stay Alfred again.
This was a great place to stay with my family for sightseeing in Philadelphia. Within walking distance to Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Museum of the American Revolution, City Hall, the art museums, and much more! Great place to stay with a family - secure building, washer/dryer in the apartment, and kitchen with everything necessary to make a meal. If I come back to Philadelphia, I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed for 4 nights as a family of 3 plus 1 guest and we used both bedrooms plus the sofa bed.
Location is excellent, 6 blocks from Independence Mall area, 2 blocks from Reading Market and right in a good area for restaurants and bars. Chestnut street is nice a clean and safe however if you happen to choose to walk down Market street it has many interesting characters, I suggest avoiding Market if possible.
The apartment is great, 2 large bedrooms including ensuite in master room along with king size bed. Air conditioner was great, in fact too cold at times. Living area was spacious and well equipped with full stove/oven refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher. TV and cable were good and easy to use, and wi-fi was good (for up to 3 devices at a time).
Would highly recommend this apartment for a short or extended stay in Philadelphia.
We were five persons renting this apartment for 8 nights. The apartment was very nice and clean. Good beds and a lot of space. The kitchen was well equipped. It was easy to access the apartment and the building and the area seemed very safe. A few things on the minus side. There was noise from the road, the windows could have been more sound proof. Toilet paper etc. was not equipped for 8 nights times five persons. The kitchen table only had four chairs, even though it is a five person apartment.
It was great! My family and I loved it. It had all the amenities that made our stay great. The only issue that I had was that the WiFi was extremely slow but that’s not entirely a biggie. Parking was a slight issue but again we were in the middle of the city which was understandable. I’d def stay again.
Our only hitch was that we couldn't access the room key in the security lock. A call to the customer service rep resolved the problem quickly. The apartment was clean and well appointed. We had everything we needed for a five day stay. The location is very convenient to the Convention Center and downtown historic and cultural sites. The apartment staff was pleasant and security was never a concern.
This is a great location with close access to city garages and sightseeing. The lobby was nice and the front desk people were very helpful. Easy in & out and lots of nearby restaurants and amenities. The gym was very nice. Our unit was not up to par, and not represented in the photos shown. We had several issues - shower handle fell off, toilet needed repair, lamp switch broken, dirty dishes & blanket that had been put away, & dirty shower curtain, carpeting and upholstery. I reached out to Stay Alfred after we checked in that evening and received a quick response by the next morning. We were told that they might have another unit that they could move us to, but one wasn't offered immediately. We had a packed schedule and wouldn't have been able to move until the following am unless we cancelled some of our appointments, so we stayed. Stay Alfred did have maintenance come and fix the shower handle and toilet. We put towels down to sit on the sofa and just dealt with the rest. I'd stay in that location again if I could be assured of a unit that was in better condition.
