Laundry, Bike, Gym

Overall this is a fine apartment building. Laundry machines, bike storage, and very small gym in the basement. Management is pretty responsive. Perfect location to walk to all hospitals and school, and also right on the 21/42 bus line. Close to restaurants, entertainment, and grocery store. However, old building that tends to have elevator malfunctions, power outages, and plumbing problems. The “kitchens” are tiny and appliances are not great. No central air so window ACs are a must, and no washing machine. Parking is problematic. Expensive for one person, very reasonable for a couple. The building only has studios and 1bdrms.

Great location and value.

Location: Excellent. Right across from 2401 Walnut, so great for Wharton students. Close to campus if walking and directly across the street from the 21, the bus that barrels you down Walnut to get to Huntsman. A few blocks from Trader Joe's and a new coffee shop opened up next door.

Amenities: New gym in basement - pretty standard, nothing special.

Apartment: Excellent value. Some completely renovated, others are a wreck, so check out your unit before you sign. Spacious given the building is from 1915. Thick walls help keep noise down from neighbors. Not a social building (which I like). No doorman, but can get packages delivered and left in lobby - camera is there, so no problem with receiving packages.

Management company: Sucks. Unresponsive, hoping to make a nickel off you. Be warned. The less you deal with them, the better, and you can simply enjoy your excellently located, spacious (if a tad old) apartment.

Cant say enough good things

We love living here. Its barely been a year but we will be renewing our lease when it's up. It's beautiful inside and the neighborhood is trendy but family friendly too. My sons daycare is nearby and my work is only a few blocks away. Highly recommend.

Roosevelt apt

The apartment is great - very affordable for the area, perfect distance from school, hup, chop, Presby, va. The management has recently changed and my experience so far has not been great. However, they recently made some personnel changes which should help. the new company is upgrading a lot of things in the building and is also upgrading a lot of the apartments to include more amenities. they also allow cats and small dogs now.

The Roosevelt

The whole building is studios and one bedrooms. This is a basic apartment complex - no amenities except laundry (coin operated) and a bike room in an older building. However, the location is amazing - 20 minute walk from campus and in the middle of center city with a bus stop (42 and 21) right across the street. Plus, it was $300 cheaper than anything else that I looked at in the same area. The manager of the building is definitely a little crazy, but she is very responsive and takes good care of the building.

The Roosevelt Apartment building is the best value near Center City.

The Roosevelt Apartment building is the best value you will get in the area. The building is clean and location is great at 22nd and Walnut. Most people are young professionals looking to save money on rent. There is no gym. The management is helpful and responsive to issues.

Great apartment near 2401 and school.

It's an older building that has been very well maintained.

Great location, very low rent, ideal for someone living alone and on a budget

The Roosevelt is in a prime location just a 5 minute walk to Rittenhouse Park but also as close as possible to campus while still being in Center City. R-Bar (formerly known as Rosie's) is right downstairs and there is a nail salon and dry cleaners just down the street as well. Also just 2 blocks and 2 avenues from Trader Joe's on 21st and Market. There is no doorman, just a key fab to enter but I've never had a problem with security thus far. Definitely a great deal for the amount I am paying - I would recommend the building to others.

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.
