Thank you for staying with us Susan and thank you for your thorough review! From our experience most of our guests are in the city to spend time together and explore Philadelphia, so when we designed this apartment we did not want the TV to be the center of attention. We wanted the layout to be geared towards social interaction so we decided to face the couch towards the rest of the living room and the kitchen. However, since it’s an L-shaped couch you can still pretty comfortably watch TV if that’s your preference. This apartment is in an old building so unfortunately it doesn’t have as many outlets as we would’ve liked, but we do have a couple of power strips in the apartment to make it more convenient. In regards to the trash situation there’s not much else we can do than provide you with a key to access the trash alley if you’re staying for an extended period of time. It’s located in a lock box on the same floor so you can access it whenever you need.
I wish you would have told us during your stay that you didn’t have any dish detergent and not enough kitchenware and we would have brought more immediately, but thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will remedy it right away. Best, Folke, Johnny & Rob
