RiverWest

I've loved living here MS2-MS4. The units are condos, so there is variability between the units themselves and experiences with landlords. I have really liked my unit and have had an easy time with my landlord.

Excellent location! only 20-25 minute walk to campus or a ~12 minute bike ride. And easy to take the bus from Walnut. It's also close to Rittenhouse Square and lots of restaurants, shops, and friends in Center City. Only 10-15 minutes from 30th Street Station (train station) and 2 blocks away from Trader Joe's. Also very close (2 blocks) to the Schuylkill Trail! (Great for running/walking/biking)

There is are door people 24/7, which is really helpful for receiving packages or leaving keys for friends who are visiting. Convenient indoor gym and utilities are included in rent (electricity, water, gas). Internet is left to you to buy. Laundry in the basement $1.50/load.

Cons: I live on the side of the street facing Chestnut on the 7th floor, and have found the noise from the street can be pretty noisy. Think this would be less of a problem on the north side of the building. Also can get very warm (central heat) in the winter, but fixable by opening the windows or turning on the AC.

River West

Good value in terms of what is included in the rent. You rent via individual condo owners, so check out Craigslist and search riverwest or 2101 Chestnut. Many apartments are updated fixtures. Studios have a lot of space and storage, and I was able to make separate spaces based on how I set up furniture which made it feel more like a 1 bedroom. Gym is pretty good, and they do a nice job keeping the building clean and responding to maintenance requests. About a 15min walk to the broad street line, but you could take bus or trolley. Walk to station is nice, you pass a few coffee and breakfast places.
Biggest con: It is a older building with steam heat. Once that heat is on, you can't control the heat in your unit. Since your utilities are included, you can run the A/C all winter long to balance it out, but esp on higher floors it can get toasty in the winter.

Good value

Overall good value especially with all utilities included except internet. The niceness of the unit depends on how much the landlord has updated. Allows pets. The building is working on cosmetic updates to the hallways which are a good improvement. They accept packages at the front desk which is a big plus, and the front desk staff are friendly and responsive as are the maintenance staff who are great. There is a community gym which is OK. There are 2 laundry rooms, unfortunately no in unit laundry. Some people complain about the steam heat in the winter that cannot be individually controlled during the winter.

Reasonable

This apartment is extremely reasonably priced for what's included and the neighborhood in which it is located. The apartment itself is very basic- some of the apartments in the building have newer appliances, but mine has outdated appliances. However, for $1400/month to live in a one-bedroom near Rittenhouse, I can't complain. The apartments with newer appliances tend to have higher monthly rent. I have a walk-in closet, a large bedroom (room for queen bed and multiple dressers/night tables), a large living room (space for a full-sized couch and tv), and a kitchenette. There is a gym in the building with basic cardio equipment, a few weight machines, and free weights. Maintenance works in the building daily, so if there is a need for a repair, they can come immediately or at a time that is most convenient.

One note- if you live on one of the higher floors, it gets very hot in the winter because the heat is building-controlled. If you like it cooler, as I do, you'll have to crack a window at times.

Riverwest

Older building so amenities aren't great (no in unit washer/dishwasher) but it's nice to know you're paying a flat fee for rent/cable/electricity/water/heating every month. Saw a few cockroaches when I first moved in, which was upsetting but they're gone now. The blinds aren't that great so I would recommend asking landlord if they can put curtains up too.

Riverwest

Excellent apartment for a very reasonable price. Only issue is that the heat system is centrally controlled and management takes a few days more than they should before turning on the AC during the winter. No big problem if you just buy a heater for a few days.

Aside from that the apartment is on a perfect location, elevators work well, and there are lots of Wharton students in the building.

Best value in Center City

While it's not as nice as some of the brand new high rises, Riverwest is a nice complex that is by far the best value building I've seen. There is also a 24 hour doorperson to receive packages, which is a great perk. Since they are condos, the quality of each apartment varies greatly, so if you're thinking of living here, definitely take time to visit the apartment first.

Fitler Square Reviews

168 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.
