We had a wonderful stay with Norma in her charming row house just steps from the Delaware river. Breakfast was delicious and conversation was lively. In some ways, it felt more like we were staying in a friend's house than in a bed and breakfast. The room was large, clean, and nicely furnished. Independence Hall was about a 15-20 minute... More

This is a wonderful restored home in the historic district and near Independence Hall. The hostess is accommodating, engaging, and knowledgable about the area and transportation. It is great to be able to walk out the door and start immediately enjoying the history and architecture of Philadelphia. We were in town for University of Pennsylvania graduation, but a bus stops...

This was my second stay on the 3rd floor of Norma's B&B. I love the location - close to downtown and near the best Mexican restaurant. Norma has great taste and is a lovely, attentive hostess. Excellent home made breakfasts. Excellent value. If you are looking for a modern, spotless place - you may be disappointed. The house was lovingly... More

Visited Philly with another couple for 3 nights and truly enjoyed our stay at this historic home. Our host was very accommodating. The three breakfasts were delicious. The stairs are small and typical of such a old house. We walked or used cab service. This is in a great location. The rooms were clean and spacious. The other couple had... More

This is the perfect location for the historical area. That was our main interest in visiting Philadelphia but we ended up walking to the center city area and back--Philly is easy to walk around. We stayed on the third floor and would warn anyone that the stairs are very steep and winding,. We did fine with them since we just... More

Our stay with Norma at New Market B&B was an eventful one to say the least! On the first night we got there, my husband had to be rushed to hospital. At 3am I rushed downstairs and had to wake poor Norma who was quick to call an ambulance for us. She even specified which hospital the paramedics should bring... More

This was my fifth stay at New Market B & B and once again, I had a most enjoyable stay. With just two rooms for rent, this marvelous old townhoue feels intimate, private and cozy. I experienced the 2nd floor room this time...a double bed and large bathroom with exposed brick walls and a solarium window. (The 3rd floor room... More

We always appreciate staying at New Market on our annual Phiadelphia visit. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable, and the location is perfect. Society Hill is a stunning neighborhood, and an easy walk to so many attractions. Norma is a wonderful hostess, very warm, down-to-earth and knowledgeable about the city. By now, it's like visiting with a friend. And she's... More

We stayed in the second floor bedroom and it was very nice and spacious. I had some reservations about the size of the bed (it's a full/double sized bed) but it was definitely comfortable for two people. The room was generally clean although I did notice a slight layer of dust on the mirror. The room locks from the inside... More

This was my fourth stay and New Market B & B. The location is ideal! New Market is situated on a sedate, classy cobblestone street, just two blocks off the highway. Most historic sites are within walking distance, you're one block from edgy, funky South St. and art museums are an easy trolley ride away. That, alone, is reason to... More
