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.

My fiancé and I stayed in Bella Vista one night. We attended a concert in the nearby theatre of the living arts on south street. Overall we enjoyed our stay. We plan to return to philadelphia and will stay at this b&b again. Great location. Close to bus lines, South Street and grocery stores. We stayed in a shared suite,... More

I booked two nights in the City View in the Bella Vista while traveling with my husband. The first introduction to the hotel was an extensive email detailing all of the things we could and could not do while staying. A few days before our arrival, we received an email with electronic access codes to both the hotel and the... More

I booked last minute for a B&B at a convention being held at the Philadelphia Convention Center. The Philly Bella Vista B&B was a long shot, in my mind, but I had no other option. When I arrived I was surprised to find that there was no reception desk. Just instructions on how to get into my room and the... More

We had a very bad experience staying at Bella Vista. Things started out ok. We made a reservation for one night, but had to cancel at the last minute due to a family emergency, and Bella Vista kindly gave us a credit for a future stay. A month later, we booked the same room. However, on the night of our... More

This B&B was built in the 1860's located in an old Italian neighborhood known as as Bella Vista... a few doors away from a great Italian restaurant where a mafia chief was wasted back in the "80's." The Bella Vista has plenty of charm with it's eclectic decor. It is an easy walk to many sights,shopping,and great restaurants. The room... More

The Bella Vista has a lot of character. I'd definitely stay again. I was in the Shangri La room. It was cozy, clean and the bed quite comfortable. There is an excellent Italian restaurant right next door. It was perfect for a business overnight. Parking was in a public garage a couple of blocks away. I'm a runner and I... More

This B & B is in a perfect location for visiting South Philly, and obviously was in excellent condition at one time. It is quaint, homey, and comfy. The bed is great. It has a nice breakfast nook with refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast is not nearly as satisfying as many others, but you do get some additional snacks. The... More

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
