Our experience was excellent, beginning with the phone reservation right through to check out. We were right in the heart of the Rittenhouse Square district in Philly which was super convenient for walking and public transportation. The check in and check out process were very smooth and went just as explained in the email instructions. As far as the accommodations, the unit was immaculate. The kitchen was fully stocked with all needed essentials and having a washer and dryer was definitely an added bonus! (The only thing missing was a box of tissues). I would definitely recommend and will likely vacation with Stay Alfred again.
I am writing this review as I sit in a Stay Alfred property. I was only given one key for a two bedroom apartment. Only one of the heaters works, leaving one bedroom freezing. Less than half the lights work, cannot see in the bathroom enough to even shave. If you are looking for a cost effective place to stay, book Alfred. But, if you want two keys, climate control, lights, and other basics - book a traditional hotel. After a phone call and e-mail I have yet to have anyone call me back to address my issues.
so let me start with the 1% gets an B+
I love to cook so the kitchen top on my list. The kitchen was great I had to spend the first 30mins cleaning the kitchen (mainly the dishes). But it very modern and well stocked. I loved the full size gas stove! the dishwasher didn't work that well so I'm guessing this is why the dishes was dirty in the cabinets. I think the blame is on the previous guest for that as you must leave the place clean when you check out.
Also, the hot water heater is small so you can't shower and run the dishwasher at the same time. you can't take back to back showers, you have to wait for the water to heat back up.
The other 99% gets an A+++
The rest of the place was clean, comfortable and perfect! Master Bed where low to the ground which I loved!!! second bed room was normal hight and very comfy plus the view from this room was get also...
No noise which was very important because rest was our main focus. Great staff and the view of the city was really nice. Was able to walk to everywhere as this place is in center city! Simply an amazing weekend getaway!
We are an Airline Crew Couple (Pilot and flight attendant) and we spend a lot of time in hotels at work. So this place was perfect for us. It felt like a home which was the best part to us. We will be back and look forward to checking out your other locations.
Four sisters really enjoyed 2 nights @ this hotel-alternative/Stay Alfred unit w two new bathrooms! Great location near Rittenhouse Square, shops, restaurants, sites. Unit fresh, modern, well equipped. Bed in 2nd bdrm is alongside wall so crowded for 2 adults, but fine for 1 or 1 plus child. Great place!
Convenient to Rittenhouse Sq and all the boutiques and a variety of good
restaurants. The apartments are clean and furnished well.
