Rough Living

At least my apartment and the ones I saw during my tour were pretty outdated, but being a student I needed a place and the price was cheaper than surrounding buildings. My apartment did not have a dish washer and you had to pay for laundry that was inside the complex. The biggest issue I had was that due to the old infrastructure of the building, there was a lot of cockroaches. Like I killed one daily. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone unless they really were tight on money. The management side was actually really good. I often had no issue getting my maintenance requests done in a timely matter, but other than that, there is not much more positive about it. There was also a door man there, which, is nice since there is a little bit of added safety, but the people in the building were a little "different". My level always smelt like weed and I imagine there was other drugs circulating the complex as well.

Adelphia House

The location of this place is what makes it so awesome. Walk out of the Adelphia house and you are right in the heart of Philadelphia on 13th street, by all the good restaurants and fun bars. The view is great if you get a spot up high. I also have never had a problem with bugs, which is hard to find in some of these old Philadelphia buildings.

Would recommend for students

I have lived at the Adelphia House for a year. I moved here from South Carolina for school, so I really did not know what to expect when coming here.
My experience here thus far has been average. My apartment had a new kitchen and hardwood floors. The location is good for school but the area is a little sketchy.

Paying for convenience

Pros: great neighborhood, gym in the building, responsive management, concierge downstairs and locked entrance to the building.

Cons: expensive for a 1-bedroom, old building (this causes a lot of other issues with pipes, heat, etc.), my apt has no natural light but there are different apartments in this building, not accessible for wheelchairs, strollers, etc.

Resume: this apt is great for a young single person, not bad for a young couple (although there isn't enough space for two), and not very comfortable for a young family with a baby.

It's pretty ok!

For someone who just moved here and isn't planning on staying more than a year, it's a pretty good place. It was easy to get a place in here due to the many rooms available, though it is kinda pricey for the quality of the room/room size. Management is a little odd at times and grouchy, they don't really seem to care about much unless you threaten to leave. The doormen/women are very sweet however! I haven't had major issues here at the Adelphia, but like I said it takes a while for them to fix problems (like plumbing) and there is often much noise, at least on my floor. Bonus: Free Gym upstairs!

Quiet and Friendly

Overall my stay here has been pretty nice so far. The management is a little annoying at times but the studio itself hasn't had any major issues and issues that happened were solved promptly. My only issue really is the price, I understand its center city, but a small studio should not cost over 800. The area is nice though and the gym is definitely a plus!

Perfect location, great living, decent management

Overall, you can't beat Adelphia House for living in Center City for price and proximity to all the great restaurants and activities in Philadelphia. Public transportation including bus terminals and Jefferson Station are literally a minute walk away. That being said, the apartment itself has been pretty great overall- we had a pest problem that was resolved after we had the place cleaned by an outside company and no issues with heat/cold. Again, the only downturn has been the numerous water shutoffs that take place during the daytime on weekdays but it is an old building and it makes sense for restoration. Overall, good to be in center city for an affordable price.

Midtown Village Reviews

Great neighborhood that keeps on getting better. Lots of new restaurants have been added over the last year, and we have several great grocery options (i.e. Target, Mom's Organic, and if you want to walk a bit further, Whole Foods). It's easy to walk anywhere in Center City, and if you need to get a bit further, there are several public transit options nearby (Jefferson Station, Suburban, Broad Street Line, Market Frankford line).
Wonderful vibrant neighborhood that is also affordable especially relative to nearby options like Rittenhouse Square or Old City. Constantly has tons of new fast casual and fine dining restaurants offering a wide variety of price options. Between the Target, Mom's, and Reading Terminal, there are plenty of options for groceries/necessities that weren't there a few years back. Public transit is great - you can get across town easily by bus or train. If you need to get to NYC or somewhere on regional rail, Jefferson Station and Greyhound are right there as well. I'd strongly recommend Midtown Village if you're moving to Philly!
Best neighborhood in Philly - lots of amazing restaurants (i.e. Lolita, Zavino, Barbuzzo, Xiandu Thai, Masala Kitchen), several grocery options (i.e. Reading Terminal, Mom's Organic, Target, Everything Fresh), and multiple gym options nearby, easily public transit access, and you can walk to everything.

This area of Philly has become much nicer over the last few years, and with the 1213 Walnut building completed, the W Hotel wrapping up and The Ludlow apartments (i.e. Market East) being completed, I expect continued improvements over the next few years. If you are new to Philly, this is definitely the place to be!
This is such a vibrant neighborhood. Mom's Organic Market is next door with the best selection of organic groceries. Across the street is Honey Grow and Luke's Lobster and Rosa's Fresh Pizza for quick, delicious dining options!! New restaurants and shops are being built - it is wonderful!
Midtown Village is my favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia. There is a fantastic selection of restaurants and nightlife, but you're also right in the middle of any other area you'd like to access - like Rittenhouse Square or Old city - which you can walk to in under 20 minutes.
It's center-city: safe and expensive, but incredibly walkable and there's ample modes of public transportation nearby. There are great restaurants to try out, as well as a convenient (albeit expensive) parking garage directly opposite to the apartment.
This is a great place to live. There are tons of interesting bars and restaurants but it's not as expensive as Rittenhouse square (which is only a short walk away). Plus, you're close to the attractions near Old City, also just a quick walk.
The neighborhood is busy but fun for younger residents especially. It’s right in the middle of Center city, close to city hall with lots of things to do and see. Pretty much everything is within walking distance.
