“Lovely location!”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was perfect and the people at the desk were all very nice. The fact that there was coffee and tea in the lobby was a nice touch. We liked being about to stay in Philly for two couples for the price of one hotel. It was also great have a home base so close to Reading Terminal Market, Chinatown, and a street fair that was there that weekend. It was out the buildings front door! Such fun. A drawback for us and why there is not five stars was the air conditioning didn't work. This was fine since the apartment had big windows that you could open and get the cross breezes. However, you also gained the noise during the night. So, made it a bit tough for sleep at times. There was one fan to use to block noise out. Needed to be another for the other couple. Despite this, we would definitely stay again. The place was very clean and the Stay Alfred folks were a pleasure to work with.

“Dusty, musty and noisy”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

No these aren't the names of the 3 muskateers but sadly summarises what the apartment represents in reality.
Firstly, the apartment is difficult to locate. Yes it's stated to be on chestnut and 12th but once at that corner, you are lost. It could have been any building around the area ...so happy searching with luggage like we did. No signage whatsoever. For the sake of future tourists insisting on this lodging, its next to 7 eleven....you're welcome.
The apartment itself is not small but the furniture , carpet , rug, bedrooms are so dated I felt transported back to the 70s. Having a sensitive nose, I started sneezing non stop one hour upon entering the room. Thank God i brought along some anti histamines.Needless to say, it was dusty. The bedrooms have a musty odour that made me nauseas at some point.
At night, the incessasnt shouting of drunkards, wailing sirens of emergency vehicles, blasting of loud music and revving of engines from inconsiderate drivers kept me awake. All unavoidable as the room is next to a busy junction yet hasn't got sound-proofing.
And service is non existent in this "serviced apartment" btw. No basic daily cleaning at all. You are left alone in the apartment till the very day you check out.
Kitchenette was very basic..and the utensils...what can I say except the chopping knife can only be used as a butter knife. Any more blunt, I could use it as a meat tenderizer.
The only positive is the location. It is near reading terminal market, walnut street, Jefferson station for commute out of city,etc.
But one positive cannot salvage this place from being condemned to "unfit for stay" status

“Great downtown condo!”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in apartment 1501 at the Commonwealth for a girls weekend of historic Philly. The condo was spacious for 3 of us, but would have been a tight squeeze in the 2nd bedroom if our 4th had come. The second bedroom is quite small, a queen bed and not much room around the bed. The beds were very comfortable, lovely linens and nice bathrooms. Plenty of seating in the condo, both in the living area as well as the dining area. 24 hour security makes you feel very safe in the center of the city, and they were so helpful!!! The only negative was the noise. From prior reviews, I asked for a higher floor, and am glad I did. There is lots of activity in the area, construction, people, etc. and even from the 15th floor, we could hear some things. But we knew that going in, so we're glad we requested a higher floor. All in all, a great stay, and would definitely book Stay Alfred again!!

“good but there are better places”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Good:
* central location
* spacious apartment
* friendly and helpful concierge

Bad:
* dirty sheets on beds (we found hair of 3 different people)
* noisy, it's like you're sleeping on the street, although we were on the 8th floor. Isolating windows could be helpful here.
