We were in the Secret Room and it was just that. Good private room and decor exactly as you would expect. The breakfast was provided in the room and I really liked being able to make my own when I was ready. Parking was difficult in the afternoon as this is a city B&B, but easy in the morning (before...

I was very happy with the comfortable, quiet room. I had no car, so parking was not a consideration. I liked the easy feel of the place, and it suited me so much more than a hotel. Breakfast provided was adequate, and I liked the fact that I could prepare and heat my own food, and tea!

Honestly, This is not a real B&B. There is no breakfast except a bag of stale bread, the rooms are gloomy and overpriced. The furniture is very outdated, as it the TV. There is a misty smell in the rooms. Way overpriced. The bed is comfortable and the location good, but I would steer clear. Also, very difficult to find... More

we stayed here on a sunday night at the beginning of june 2014. There is no parking lot and good luck finding a space along the street. Numerous times during our stay we had to drive around the neighborhood for quite a while before finding a space. The parking is 2 hours, except from 6pm to 8am. Then 2 hour... More

I travel a LOT for business and when I can stay at someplace other than a big corporate hotel, I jump at the chance. Those big hotels have their benefits of course (earning points, restaurants inside, and so forth) but they're pretty anonymous. This month I had to go to Philadelphia twice for work. The first time I stayed at... More

We absolutely loved staying here. I liked being in an authentic and quaint house in Philadelphia instead of the big hotels by the convention center. It seems to me that people seeking B & B experiences are seeking something different from the chain hotels: something unique and personal. This is fantastic. For people expecting a traditional Bed & Breakfast with... More

LOCATION AND PARKING: The location is great. It's in the center city within walking distance of all the traditional historical sites you would want to see. This was key for us. There is two hour street parking, but for overnight parking you need to park in a garage. The Bella Vista suggested a conveniently located parking garage with fairly decent... More

My husband and I are from Philly and once in a while like to return to visit friends, but we are definitely too old to be couch-surfing like we used to, so I booked this b&b for 1 night this past weekend and it was exactly what we wanted. Really great center-city location, and a reasonably priced room in a... More

If you are looking for a good B&B in Philli, that's the place. Everything is clean, the bed is very confortable and the breakfast is yummy, with homemade muffins!! The location is phenomenal and you can visit the all the touristic places by foot, without car or public transportation.

Nothing like the brochure!! Owners do not know apparently what a bed and breakfast is. They are not welcoming, room had NO HEAT and is was 20 degrees out! Walls were peeling, no breakfast, leak in kitchen sink nearly flooded out the space which I was forced to clean up! Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere! Trust me!! I... More
