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 The furniture is very outdated, as it the TV.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

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
