Tucked between the hustle and bustle of Chestnut and Walnut Streets, The Sansom offers both access to and refuge from the fast pace of city living. The Sansom is located just northeast of Rittenhouse Square, in the heart of one of Philadelphias most vibrant neighborhoods. With ready access to some of the citys best retailers, restaurants and employers, residents of The Sansom will likewise appreciate its location just off the beaten path on Sansom Street.
Loved my apartment!
I would probably give an excellent rating if it were not for the odor which occurs in the lobby from the trash room. It's embarrassing when the smell is bad and you have guests over. It's a pretty big turn off to an otherwise great building.
The walls are really thin, so we can easily hear noises the neighbors are making (having friends over, cooking, etc). The equipment at the gym is often broken. The garbage makes the lobby smell bad. On a positive note, Husayn and the girl with longer hair and glasses (Julie I think), are very nice front desk people.
The walls are really thin, the fixtures (outlets, door handles, etc.) are really cheap. The machines in the gym are also very cheap and rickety -- the treadmills creak and move around when you try to run on them.
I love the Sansom. My only complaint is that the walls between apartments are very thin and are not sound-proofed.
