Solid for the price
I like the value of the Chatham. I get to live alone, with plenty of space and high ceilings for a reasonable price.
Great value and place to live
It's a perfect location, super cheap for what it is, and a big room! Sure, the hallways are pink and the appliances are old, but it's unbeatable value if you don't cook too much and like to have plenty of space. The studio has an extra office-type room and the closet is basically another room.
Prime location with lots of space
I have lived in The Chatham for 5 years and highly recommend the building. It is old, but well maintained. It has all the benefits of an old building - high ceilings, sound-proof walls, lots of space, cute features, and HUGE closets. Drawbacks are that the windows can be a little drafty and amenities are lacking - no dishwasher, washer dryer in the basement, etc. If old and spacious is what you're looking for, you've come to the right place. Plus, the 24 hour doormen are fantastic and the manager is very responsive. Definitely recommend.
Great value for a large studio! Kitchen/eating area is separate from main studio - feels like 2 separate rooms unlike typical studios. Also lots of storage space available.
Nice place to live
Great value in a nice, quiet location. Most things I needed regularly are in walking distance and its still pretty easy to get around the city via the bus.
Cheap apartment; very low-frills; conveniently close to everything but not very social.
No frills building that comes with plenty of space at an amazing price
Huge rooms. Wooden floors. All utilities included. Doorman and elevator. Excellent maintenance staff. Older kitchens (no dishwasher).
5 out of 5 stars if you get the right rooms at the right location/floor!
Great value for the location and space. Building maintainance and rent office is extremely prompt, answering to any requests within 24 hours. An A/C is included in the rent every summer, however the apartments do not include heater, microwave, and dishwasher so be prepared to supply those by yourself. Recommend high floor that faces Sansom street for less noise, since it is a lively neighborhood. Good with family due to wide space.
Great location and cheaper than the competition
You do have to write your rent payment and walk it over to the landlord...older building, but besides that it is a great location and cheaper than the competition. Spacious places. I really have enjoyed my time at the Chatham.
Large Spacious Apartments at an Insane Value!
The Chatham gives you the largest space for the least amount of money in Rittenhouse Square. There is a 24 hour doorman which was important to me. The hallways are pink and look really sketchy, but the apartments are very large, spacious, have wood floors and crown molding, and all utilities are included. The staff is really nice and friendly. It's an old building, so has that type of charm, but I've never had any of the old building issues since its well kept. It's also really conveniently located at the corner of 20th St. and Walnut, so you can take the 21 or 42 bus straight to campus. The downsides are that there isn't a gym, laundry is in the basement, and as mentioned above, the hallways look kind of sketchy.
One of the best deals in Center City.
Studio is 500 square feet, has hardwood floors, lots of light, walk-in closet, quiet. Convenient location - bust stop right by the building.
Amazing value for location and space
The building itself is a bit old and the management is not the fastest at responding to issues. However, it is an amazing value for money -- very spacious, great light, perfect location, hardwood floors, 24-hour doormen (though they tend to doze a bit late at night...). I love coming home to a beautiful space with tons of natural light and a view of Rittenhouse Square. I looked at apartments all over the city and it was the cheapest that met all my requirements (location, lighting, safety, space). It's just a few steps to the bus stop, good restaurants, a cafe with free wifi, bars (including Irish Pub, where people gather often), etc. Other tenants are friendly though it's not very social because there are no common areas to hang outstudy.
Excellent value with a great location
Amazing location with a 30 minute walk to campus and less than <10 mins walk to all the happenings at Wharton. The building itself is old, which is very apparent in the bathrooms and kitchens. This is very much a value play as the rent is cheap for the area and also includes utilities. If you are looking for something very comfortable, you will do better elsewhere (but also pay higher).
The chatham is an underrated secret.
Better location than most wharton buildings (20th and walnut). Apartments are old and charming. Building functions well. Building is a bit older, but everything works well.
Although the building is older and lacks some of the amenities of luxury buildings, I have had a great experience at the Chatham. The apartment is large, with lots of light, hardwood floors and a responsive super. I highly recommend it.
