Your NICHE Studio with Kitchen in University City |Unit 3A

Location

Philadelphia, PA, United States

Description

NICHE was born from the desire to create a beautiful space with flexible stays and housing in University City. If you’re in town for a visit, for a few months, or even a year, we have a room suited for you.

NICHE is a distinctive, historic property - no two rooms are the same. We offer truly custom accommodations. NICHE offers two types of units: The NICHE Rooms and The Custom Stay Studios.

The NICHE Rooms are ideal for shorter stays, with access to our beautiful lounge, for working or relaxing, and the private garden - they, of course include access to all property amenities.

Interaction

We are professional hosts with customized service at our core, which means we're here as much or as little as you prefer. If you don't need us, you won't see us, but never hesitate to ask for anything you do need.

Neighborhood

Philadelphia is known for its history, art, prestigious universities and institutions. University City/West Philly is a true melting pot of food, culture, music and art. The area holds some of the cities most beloved parks, museums, restaurants and venues. At NICHE you’ll be in the midst of endless opportunities to explore what West Philly has to offer.

The area has a Walk Score of 97/100 - a “walker’s Paradise”. Moving around the city doesn’t necessarily require a car. There is a large parking garage 2 blocks from our front door to keep your car while you stay with us. NICHE is a two minute walk from Philadelphia’s main subway line (the Market Frankford Line) which will take you to the heart of center city in less than 5 minutes.

We are a 5 minute drive from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia or a 16-min walk. If you prefer cycle, you can do that in just 6 mins. We are also minutes from University of Pennsylvania’s campus.

Access

You’ll have keyless access to your unit and all building entrances (front and rear) with a personalized key code that will be sent to you after booking.

Please note: We use a noise monitoring device on the property to ensure that our guests are being good neighbors; It does NOT record actual sounds or conversations, it simply monitors the noise level (measured in decibels). Quiet hours are observed from 9 pm-8 am. Violators will be charged a $200 fine. This property may use NoiseAware technology to ensure the comfort and security of the guest. Tampering with the device is strictly prohibited and will result in a $200 fine.

Keys/FOBS:
Prior to your arrival, we will take pictures of the keys/fobs for the home. (Where applicable)
If the same number of keys/fobs are not left as assigned on your departure for security purposes we will have to replace all locks and pass the expense of this onto you. The costs would be as follows. Remove and Replace old lock $250-$450 depending on the lock needing to be replaced. Each fob will be $150. Mailbox lock removal and replacement keys $150

House Policy Agreement will be sent to your email and needs to be signed prior to check-in.

Sarah Lea
Penn Mom
This unit was the perfect location in University City so I could sleep close to my daughter's Penn apartment while helping her unpack. I did not have a car but enjoyed walking to dining, groceries and campus in a safe neighborhood. The room was comfortable, I could cook meals because the grocery store was two blocks away, the bathroom was luxurious, and the laundry room in the building was a huge bonus. I even used the comfy lobby area to unwind in the afternoon to escape the heat and humidity. I will be renting this unit when I return to visit her in the months to come. Best of all the communication before and after my stay was detailed, professional, and my security deposit was swiftly returned after check out. Thank you!
