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:

We will provide you with your very own key less code to access the building and to access your room before your arrival. For security, your code will automatically delete upon your check out date.

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.


Space:

Our twelve rooms are made of two different types - The NICHE Rooms and The Custom Stay Studios.

"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. )

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.

We had a great time at Niche and will plan to stay here again the next time we visit Philadelphia. The room was quiet and clean and public transit was very close by.

Great place. Easy to find, exceptionally located. The bus stops right outside the front door, and the train is just a block away. Check-in was pretty easy and communication was great. As this is an Airbnb and not a hotel, I never expect shampoo/conditioner or even towels, but this was all provided as well as a small Keurig-type coffeemaker and coffee pods. A pleasant surprise! Bed was comfortable and the heating/AC unit was fantastic. Just so future guests know, there is no real desk (there is a small side table if you are sitting on the couch). This was no problem for me but I would not recommend for remote workers. Also, this is a city, there is street noise and the walls are thin. Lots of party noise, traffic noise, etc--probably not from the Airbnb building, but from neighboring houses. Not a knock on the host because this is the trade-off for such a good city location, but recommended to bring headphones. Overall, a great stay and perfectly suited to what I needed for a long weekend. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Very nice clean place but had issues with some communication. It was mostly interacting with automatic messages and difficult to talk to a real person.

Overall the room was aesthetically good and it was clean, however the hangers placement wasn’t functional at all and it would’ve been nice to have small bin in the room
