This is the perfect studio for a sabbatical stay in Philadelphia. I would use it again in a heartbeat if ever I go back there. The location is ideal, just north of Drexel U. Certainly walking distance from UPenn where I was. Also the neighborhood felt very safe. It is quiet. And the studio itself has everything you need, and has real charm. Very high ceilings, nice original finishes. And to crown it all, the owners were very attentive. All in all, a must for anyone considering a place close to UPenn. Excellent JT 6/25/2019 7:08:00 AM
