Neighborhood:

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.

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

Great place, excellent location, will stay here again.
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!
