The place looked like you are at your own house. But someone was cleaning after you in the morning and filling your fridge with the breakfast for the next morning. The breakfast was nice. The hotel is close to the Italian Market.

I stayed at the Philadelphia Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast in August for three nights. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was for the amount I paid! I stayed in the "Outback" room, which was really more of a small apartment than a room. When entering the property from South 10th Street, I'd walk the length of the... More

Second time staying here, same time last year. We got a different room this time City View. I agree with the other reviewer, it would be nice if Utopia was empty which it was one night, nut the guests that were there were so quiet. That being said, I knew it was shared when I booked, so I am not... More

Read the details carefully as this will not suit everybody. We had no interaction with the hosts but this was fine as clearly explained beforehand. We had the City View room which was excellent (balcony with views, facilities, cleanliness) though the room does share facilities (kitchen area and bathroom) with another room. How that works if other guests are there... More

Our room was clean and that is the only true positive to this B&B. All of the "charm" has been painted over sloppily with gaudy colors. There are holes in the floor and closet doors that don't fit or close. The whole place had a musty odor. A plastic zip top bag with muffins and slices of bread for toast... More

On street parking could be hard to get. There is a parking garage nearby. We stayed in the Morning Glory room. The room was huge with a nice size bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/shower. Philly is a walkable .

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
