Awesome Floor Plan in a Historical Building

Large amount of space for the price point, perfect for 3 people. Great common spaces and a kitchen that accommodates more than one person cooking at once. Call box w/ virtual doorman that let's in package deliveries and allows you to let in guests. Very close to a trolley station, Rittenhouse square bars/restaurants/shops. Downside is that the building is slightly older (it's a designated historical landmark) so the temperature control system isn't the best. Pet friendly w/ landlord consent. Leased by a nice guy who owns a few units in the building and is responsive to maintenance requests.

I recommend The Coronado

It's an older building without the amenities you find in other complexes that MBAs like. But the location is great, the doorman is friendly, and the rent is cheap. This is a no-frills, practical, affordable place to live.

The Coronado

Older apartment, but good value. Management could certainly be better. Solid location. No major complaints.

Great location

While there aren't many Wharton students living in the building, it's a fantastic location (across the street from 2116 Chestnut and a few buildings down from Riverwest). It's also around the corner from The Armoury (easy to stumble home from Pub) and 2 blocks from 2401.

Large, comfortable pre-war apartments, small building, no-nonsense building

The Coronado is exactly what I was hoping for in my B-School apartment. The location is incredibly convenient for living and the commute to school, if a bit of a sterile neighborhood. The building has been undergoing renovations slowly over the pat few years, which seem mostly done. The apartments are great -- huge, original pre-war details, and an incredible value. The management leaves something to be desired -- they have been a bit surly, skeptical of my requests and slow to respond to issues. I would rent here again if I had to do it all over again -- it's been very comfortable.

Great value, updated pre-war apartments

The Coronado is a medium sized condo building (~36 apartments) with a part-time doorman, elevator, and 9 floors. Central Air/Heat is included in the rent which is great as the windows are old and can be a bit drafty. Great kitchen and tons of windows. Many units have in-unit laundry, but there is also a laundry room in the basement. Management has been hard to deal with for maintenance issues. Amazing location close to 2401, Trader Joes, Trolley to campus, etc. Good value for the apartments as well, which are quite large. The residents are a mix of graduate students/young professionals and some older couples. I would choose this building again.

Rare 3 bedroom option

The Cornado is an average condo building. The units aren't particularly nice, but the location is pretty good and it was one of the few buildings that had an affordable 3 bedroom option.

Apartment Review

Center City is an amazing area for Penn students. The trolley is a block away, and it takes you right to Penn's campus. Center City is the center of social life in Philadelphia, and it is incredibly accessible by way of the bus or trolley. The apartment is beatiful - we rent from the owner, so he's very responsive to our requests to fix issues around the apartment. The apartment is lacking amenities (eg. gym, study room) which may be a priority, but the lower rent at the Coronado reflects that. There's also a doorman from 7 am to 4 pm Monday-Saturday, so there's no issue with packages being undeliverable.

Fitler Square Reviews

The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
It is terribly unexceptional, which may be a good thing - no crowds, gawping tourists, amateur sports teams on a night out, etc. There are a few restaurants and bars nearby and you are generally in walking distance of everything you might need
Fitler square is primarily behind Riverloft (which faces Walnut). You're really in Center City. The Fitler square neighborhood is amazing for walks with dog, running, hanging out in the park, small cuter-type restaurants, etc. Probably more attractive to couples, families, and lower-key students. A little bit of a walk (10 minutes) for bar scene, with exception to Pub and Bonners.
I think Fitler Square has it all. It has its own good bars and restaurants and is only a couple blocks to the full host of things at Rittenhouse. Easy walk to campus or convenient Route 40 bus. Multiple parks including the one at Taney and Lombard which is one of the biggest parks in the city and part of the Schuylkill River Trail. Decent grocery store right at 23rd and south, but still a reasonable walk to Trader Joes at 22nd and Market too.
