We have stayed at the City House twice in the past year and would definitely return. The rooms are clean, spacious, the location perfect for sightseeing and river activities. Common areas are well maintained and relaxing. The house is located on a busy corner, but was quiet and peaceful. We liked the Bryce room a lot. Breakfasts were good, but... More

When in Harrisburg, I highly recommend staying at City House. The B&B is centrally located to many restaurants and nightlife. Riverfront Park is across the street and runs parallel to the Susquehanna river. The bedrooms are exceptionally decorated with comfy king sized beds and beautiful hardwood floors. Complimentary coffee, tea and biscotti are available to guests 24 hours a day.... More

We had the pleasure of spending one night at this exceptional Bed & Breakfast right on the river in Harrisburg. Our room was spacious and spotless ... if available, do treat yourself to the Bryce room with its 3-head shower. On Hani's recommendation, we had a delicious farm-to-table dinner at the nearby Millworks Restaurant and Art Gallery. Breakfast was very... More

We paid for the premium room and were not disappointed. Room was spacious,bed nicely turned out, linens crisp. Bathroom was a shower lovers dream-three wall shower heads that matched the water flow and hot water uninterrupted. Heated ceiling air flow was nice touch and towels large and fresh and plush. Breakfast consisted of our all important very good coffee, a... More

Things we loved: Eva let us check in early. We originally asked if we could just park our car in their lot when we arrived early before check in time of 3pm, but Eva told us to come on in and she would check us in. The room was large and NOT frilly which we like. Some B&Bs just have... More

We have just left City House this morning and have had a great stay. The house itself is beautiful and Eva is a most friendly and attentive host, nothing is too much trouble. We had a problem with our hire car and Eva sorted us out with a local taxi driver called Ken to take us around and he also... More

My wife and I had a great stay here. The building is right on the waterfront and walking distance to downtown restaurants and shopping. The place is very old and absolutely beautiful. Super clean, comfortable beds, and just great. We are planning on a return in nicer weather.

I couldn't have had a more perfect baby shower at City House Bed & Breakfast. Erica and Eva were amazing and such a pleasure to work with. Everything was gorgeous! The City House more than exceeded my expectations and the guests were full of compliments. Thank you for the wonderful memories! I highly recommend using City House for any event!

We highly recommend City House B&B, comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Harrisburg touring, churches and restaurants. While the stately house has an elegant old-warm charm, complete with hardwood floors throughout, we appreciate that the furnishings are simple and contemporary. We stayed in William. The king size bed with its king size pillows was perfect, firm without... More

We had the best experience working with City House to Plan a bridal shower. It was a perfect venue for 25 people - it feels like you are in someone's gorgeous mansion on the riverfront. Not only was it cost effective, given that you can bring your own food or catering, but there is ample space for both mingling and... More
