Our extra large Travelers Castle Guest Room lets you spread out! 2 Beds: double bed + twin bed, and sofa + sitting area, steps to the Girard MFL (metro) stop, 5-15 mins to Center City. Our spacious and sunny Fishtown home is around the corner from nightlife, food and activities in a dynamic neighborhood. TOTALLY PRIVATE BATHROOM with awesome shower, double sink & luxurious toiletries. Perfect for group travelers. Coffees and teas in the kitchen; puzzles and games are available for lazy days!
The Travelers Castle gives groups plenty of space to feel at home in Philadelphia! Our spacious row home features hardwood floors, high ceilings, cool artifacts from around the world, and a really wide array of books. Your guest room is extra large and comfortable, with a full PRIVATE bathroom just beside the room (*great* shower, double sinks, huge mirror!).
--- Many Private Room AirBnbs come with a shared bathroom - Travelers Castle gives you a fully private room and bathroom, for a single room price with all the convenience and space of a whole house! ---
The bedroom includes a double/full (1.4m) bed, twin (single) bed, sofa and armchair, writing table, and hardwood furniture. 400+ CT 100% cotton sheets and large, fluffy 100% cotton towels. Oversize windows let in beautiful afternoon light (with heavy curtains for sound sleep). Plenty of privacy (no other rooms on the same floor). The bedroom door locks with a key.
***As of August 3rd, 2017, we've added a super plush foam mattress topper to the double bed to make this bedroom more luxurious!***
Fresh towels and bottled water will be in your room, and thoughtfully selected toiletries in the bathroom (with options for those concerned about chemicals or cruelty).
*STREET PARKING* Free and unrestricted at night and on weekends, and free but limited to 2 hours between 10am and 4pm on weekdays (be sure to check signs on other blocks). We've purchased one day parking passes from the city that guests can buy - send us a message if you'll need all day parking during the week!
We may have other guests during your visit. Since its early Quaker days, Philadelphia has been known for tolerance, diversity, and inclusion - this is one of the reasons we love living here. As such, our commitment to an AirBnb free of discrimination is absolute - whether or not we look the same or have different lives, we want you to feel welcomed and at home. :) If sharing the house with different kinds of folks doesn't fit your style, we're sure you'll find an AirBnb that does.
