Studio Apartment Outside the Bubble

Small studio apartment. Does not have much of a kitchen, but I don't cook anyways. It is a few blocks away from Rittenhouse, so it can feel like it is far away from everyone else, but it is close to some favorite Wharton hangouts.

Great apartments

Center city apartments can be really hit or miss. The Arts are a perfect place for students. It's a few blocks from campus and there's a great study room in the basement where my classmates and I can spread out and study outloud. The only tricky part is getting packages sometimes; the security desk is always staffed, but it seems like there can be a delay from when it's supposed to be delivered and when I hear about it.

Pretty legit

Can't complain one bit about the arts. It's so convenient for center city and to the Jefferson hospital system. Can't beat it to be honest.

Great location makes up for quality of apartment

Our apartment is very outdated and contains a tiny kitchen without an exhaust fan of any kind. Though this seems like a fire hazard and the apartment is generally old and falling apart, I would recommend this building for its location alone. It is centrally located, very walkable and convenient to Patco and Septa. The units are individually owned, so it is possible that quality is better in other units.

Quiet studio in great location!

Very quiet and centrally located studio in CC. Worst drawback is the heating: my apt is 90 degrees in the winter when central heating is running, over which I have no control. I have to constantly run the AC and humidifier to attempt to remedy the situation.

Too dark

We face a giant red brick wall and get 0 sunlight. I love the location. Hate the carpeting though. Very small and honestly the rent should be like 800 not 1000 for the space and the lack of sunlight. It's a safe building with great security guards. 8/10

Looks Great, but a total lie.

When you walk into the building you're definitely dazzled by its interior, but please don't be fooled. Even the rooms are kinda, alright looking, but I can just say, they kinda just painted over the problems! Soft walls, loud neighbors, air conditioner that will never turn off. I have contacted management almost everyday since I moved in, (two months ago) and hey, they still never got back to me. Even though my room is a total ice box. I would be very cautious with this building. It's full of unpleasant surprises. My partner and I are ok with living in a small space together, but it's kind of obviously small and honestly could be considered a closet.

Great value

You dont have to pay 1500 to have a studio in Philadelphia. Just look around and you can find a great deal. Be patient!

Midtown Village Reviews

94 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.
