Great location and large space, but management is lacking

I love the location, it is 18 min walk to campus. However, it can get a bit loud at night so living on a top floor is encouraged.

Building is nothing special in terms of amenities / looks but my unit is very spacious.

Good Location, small old apartment

Great location in between Rittenhouse and School. Small, old, unrenovated apartments at a steep price. Small windows and kitchen. Responsive management, and in a quiet neighbourhood.

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.

Fitler Square Reviews

Love the neighborhood! If you're interested in being close to the center of the city and being able to actively explore Philly (for a not extreme price) it was great! Also was easy to get to my school - University of Pennsylvania. 15-20 mins to get to school by transit; 30 mins walking.

That being said I did notice that most students lived on the side of the school!
The beautiful tree-filled neighborhood is full of families, dogs, and students - it is safe, full of great restaurants, and boasts an equally quick walk to both University City and downtown attractions. The immediate access to the Schuylkill River Trail also can't be beat. While we lack apartment amenities, we love living in a historical brownstone that has charm and character. This is an area where you can live as a student and stay for another 20 years after that.
Great neighborhood, though expensive for Philly. If you're a Penn grad student who wants to be near campus but not on campus, it's ideal for distance from school and the Rittenhouse area. Lots of parks and residents are friendly.
There are residents without housing in the neighborhood. They're good people and new residents should be respectful of them and their belongings.
It is close to many stores, fairly close to the Schuylkill River Park and walking and biking trail, and Rittenhouse Square Park. There are many stores very nearby with a small convenience store across the street for last-minute items.
One of my favorite parts was making new friends while hopping on the uber through #2116_uber Slack channel. Also, it's an easy walk to campus and a few stops away. You really can't go wrong living here.
The fitler square/rittenhouse area is very safe and has many restaurants/activites. I have really enjoyed living there. It is also not too far from campus, only about a 25-30 minute walk.
Hard to judge the neighborhood because exploration has been limited due to COVID - but overall not bad. Some crime alerts but nothing that has necessarily made me feel unsafe.
Walking distance to literally everything - Penn/CHOP, bars/restaurants/cafes, stores, Trader Joe's, parks, the 33rd street station, buses and trains, the Schuylkill River..
