Philadelphia, PA, United States

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.


Cable TV
Air Conditioning



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.


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.


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.

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.


The Custom Stay Studios are ideal for short or longer stays. They include access to all amenities - lounge, front porch outdoor seating, and the private garden. In the unit, you’ll find a queen-sized Tuft and Needle mattress with storage drawers beneath, a cafe table for dining or work with two chairs, a mini fridge, and a flat screen TV (WiFi, local channels, and house Netflix account included). In addition, The Studio’s offer more space as well as a small kitchen. The kitchen includes a mini fridge with freezer, upper and lower storage cabinets, stainless steel sink, ceramic glass surface electric cook top, and is fully equipped with cooking and dining essentials. Common laundry washer/dryers are located on the first floor for your convenience.

The NICHE Studios are units 1A, 1B, 2A, 3A, 3E - remember each of these units are unique.


Uber, Lyft, Taxi, Septa. You name it you have it all.

"Newly listed homes available for discounted prices for a short time."
"There is still some construction going on in the building."
Please Note: There is a restaurant next door to the property that is undergoing renovations/construction, this means there may be noise from the construction, we wanted to make you aware of this before you made your reservation"

In order to honor your reservation with us, please answer the following questions:
1) What is the purpose of your stay?
2) Have you read our policies on no parties, and no smoking as well as house rules and no noise complaints?  (**Please make sure to read through the listing, most importantly the house rules/policy for proper guidance. )
3) Do you agree with our terms?
4) Please send us your email address so we can send our House Policy Agreement that you need to sign electronically
Please be informed that we are unable to send your arrival instructions or allow entry until ALL 4 of these questions are answered. House Policy Agreement will be sent to your email and needs to be signed prior to check-in.  We apologize for the need to do this, sadly a few bad apples have caused the need for these extra steps. 

PLEASE NOTE: These buildings are of new construction and when built, they were built where the whole building has either all heat or all AC, the downside to this is during shoulder seasons, its likely that we will have both hot days and cold days, when this happens you may want heat, but not be able to obtain heat for example, in these cases we keep some heaters on standby for you. Just ask for them and we will deliver. 

Additional Note: We only provide toiletries good for the first 24-48 hour use. Please bring your own or purchase at the nearby grocery stores or pharmacies for longer stays.

Great stay, great area
Honestly, it was a fantastic stay in a great area in Philly. The room and aesthetics were great, and having keyless entry to the building and room made it quite convenient. My only recommendation would be to simplify the onboarding process as well as provide a dresser/hangers in the room for clothes. We were attending a wedding and had no options to hang our suit/dress. Other than that, was impressed. Thanks so much!

Great location, really secure room, clean, and very accommodating host. Would recommend this place to anyone spending time in University City. I was there for 3 week and had no issues at all from check in to check out!

Great Location
This is a beautiful unit, located in a great section of the city, close to lots of eateries and shops. The room is spacious with a modern minimalist decor. Once you get the hang of the keyless entry system you should be good to go. I would recommend more guest towels in the rooms. Niche does not have an elevator so if you had big luggage like myself its a headache getting it up the narrow stairs to the third floor. Pack light.
