I stayed here with three other girls for a girls weekend of food and sightseeing. We only wanted to stay within the Olde Town neighborhood so the location of this historic B&B was perfect. The two caretakers and the kitchen staff do an outstanding job of making everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Evening wine tasting, excellent breakfasts, warm cookies, and... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Thomas Bond House last night. We had a one night visit and it was a great central location - plenty of restaurants and historic sights in walking distance. The Inn was very nice, some things need updating but overall really comfortable. The inn keepers couldn't have been nicer, we felt... More

Stayed here one night on the way to a NYC vacation. Had a great time exploring Old Town, Independence Hall etc for one day, can walk everywhere in the historic district from this B&B.

This B&B is in an excellent location for dining and tourism in the Colonial heart of Center City Philadelphia. Rooms are quite small, but comfortable, and there wasn't any noise overnight. Staff (Anthony and Chrissy) were outstanding--friendly and very helpful. In the morning, a very satisfactory array of continental breakfast items were laid out--fruit, yogurt, muffins, cereals, hard boiled eggs,... More

Location was the high point here as well as the staff which were very friendly and inviting. The breakfast was very nice as well and was prepared very quickly upon request. The accommodations we opted for where on the small side, but given this is a colonial building it is what it is.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I so enjoyed meeting you and your wife. Distracting you while you tried to work was informative and entertaining, and your mission for free parking was quite impressive.

Heading south to DC on a history tour, the Thomas Bond house near Independence Hall in Philadelphia seemed a good choice. And it was! Start with Parking garage right next door at a reasonable price $19. I left my wife with bags on the sidewalk. By the time I got back to the house, our bags had been carried up... More

What a fantastic place! After talking to several locals, I have discovered that this is a hidden secret--nobody seems to know what or where it is. A historical monument in the old downtown, this is the 1797 home of Dr. Thomas Bond, who co-founded the nation's first hospital with Benjamin Franklin. Now it is privately owned and operated as a...

We stayed here for 5 nights early May on our first visit to see the sights of Philadelphia. Located just 3 blocks east of Independence Hall, we found this B&B most convenient and surrounded by many restaurants, bars and historical sights in a very safe area to walk around. The rooms were small, as to be expected in an historic... More
