The Thomas Bond House B and B turned out better than I could have imagined. This historic house is situated in a perfect location to see Philadelphia historic sites. The Innkeepers went out of their way to provide information about places to see and how to get there. The breakfast was great. The complimentary glass (or two) of wine in... More

Wayne: It was a real pleasure having the two of you as guests of the inn. I can't agree with you more that our location is perfect for taking in all the historic sites. Chrissy and I really appreciate your kind remarks. If you are ever back in the states and Philadelphia, I hope you visit us again. Anthony More

My sister and I stayed at the Thomas Bond House during our annual "girls get away" and couldn't have been more pleased. The location is superb - in the Old City section of Philadelphia-close to many excellent restaurants and within easy walking distance of the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, etc. The inn itself is charming. While the room was a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the B&b. The location was prefect (close to the subway system)! We stayed in the "pink" room (Phineas 303). Our room was very small but worth a stay. The hospitality was refreshing! The staff go out of their way to help you out whether it's helping you find a local running... More

This B&B is an old colonial house and is located right in the thick of things. Our room on the highest floor was small but very nice. Be prepared to climb some steps, though. In contrast to many other B&Bs we've stayed, no cooked breakfast was served. However, breakfast was good and Chrissy, the inn keeper is a very good... More

We just returned from our second stay at the TBH. Loved it more than the first time. We stayed on the second floor in a very comfortably appointed room. The only complaint that I could make was that the bathroom was a bit dim. Other than that perfectly comfortable! The new innkeepers are very gracious and friendly. From the yummy... More
