We stayed at the Bella Vista this June. We really liked this place; it was clean, quaint and in an excellent location. Also, the website is really helpful, take up the car parking info if your driving. It is close to the stay and reasonable. We chose the Bella Vista for its location wanting to be close to the Italian... More

What an absolute horror of a hotel. I would say "where to begin," but let's be honest, it began right when we checked in. Or rather, didn't. Despite being advertised as a bed and breakfast, no one was there to greet us. In fact, writing this from the hotel on the second day, we still haven't see another soul from... More

I found the B&B to be very quaint. The decor is a mix of antique items and filled with character. The room was very nice and clean. I stayed on the top floor so if you have trouble carrying bags I would suggest a lower floor. The neighboorhood is very nice with streets lined with old houses. The location is... More

This is a discount B&B. The room (Shang-ri La) was large and comfortable. All aspects of the room were operational and it is clean. The breakfast was set up on the table in the room so the guest could self-serve their breakfast. We had a few issues which the staff helped to resolve quite responsively. This is a brownstone about... More

I stayed here two days ago for one night only and I have no complaints about tho place. The double bed in my room was so comfy, the ceilings are high but still retain great heat or cooling (whatever you choose). The breakfast is continental only but there's plenty to B pleased about such as breads, cakes, cereals, fruit, coffee... More

Hubby and I stayed here for one night while on a 2 week road trip. We originally planned on staying 2 nights, but cancelled after the first night (70% because of the B&B, 30% because we wanted to get to our next destination sooner). Philadelphia is a very interesting, intricate, busy, fun city, but this place just didn't live up... More

We had a great time, we stayed in the Philadelphian Suite and it was great. It is large, with kitchen and private bath. We had the pastries for breakfast on our first day and on the second we went to Sabrina’s cafe less than 2 blocks away. Great location, the room was clean and so were the sheets and towels.... More

I stayed for two nights in April in this Victorian-era bed and breakfast and found the experience satisfying; my husband agrees. We had chosen the Magnolia suite, which consists of a small bedroom, a small living/dining room with kitchen facilities attached, and a bathroom. It's on the top floor of its building, so you have to relish stairs; its placement... More

We stayed at this wonderful B&B in the Italian Market area of Philly to visit with family. What a great neighborhood with fine restaurants, great shopping and access to all the history in Philly. The room was clean and well organized with lots of charm. I plan to return and would recommend it to all.
