This was my first B&B stay and it could not have been better. Staff was welcoming and warm. Nightly happy hour was fun with the other guests. Breakfast was delicious served by a pleasant and attentive staff. Location was excellent for site-seeing, dining choices and bar options. Hotel was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Absolutely loved my stay-would... More

This is the 28th B&B we've stayed in. If you're visiting the historic area of Philly, you can't beat this location, kitty-corner across the street from the City Tavern. I don't think the owner lives in the house, which is rather large with many rooms. Enjoyed the complimentary wine in the evening.

Stayed here for two nights. Plusses: -- Location: convenient to the historic parts of Philadelphia and SEPTA subway. The City Tavern across the street is an excellent place for dinner. There's also an art-house movie theatre next door. -- Historic building is in generally good shape. Really adds to the ambiance of staying in the Old City. I stayed on... More

The Thomas Bond House in the historic section of Philadelphia is a good bargain. It is located within two blocks of all major historic venues and good restaurants. Parking is available next door for a fee. We arrived for a two day visit and never had to use the car. This B&B looks like an historic Inn, has good service,... More

My wife and I had never been to Philadelphia. We wanted to experience the full American Revolution experience at the "Cradle of Liberty" in Philadelphia, PA. We wanted a B & B close to the Independence National Part in the "Old City" of Philadelphia. I went to Trip Advisor, searched on Bed and Breakfast in Philadelphia, and found the Thomas... More

My husband and I stayed at this B and B and had a great time. Our innkeepers (Peggy and Jerry) were very pleasant and accommodating. The room was comfortably furnished and we loved the pieces that took us back in time to when the house was built. This B and B was walking distance to almost every attraction we came... More

This B&B is just across the street from the historic City Tavern and a short walk to most major tourist attractions nearby. Convenient public parking garage is available right next door. Public transportation also located near the Inn which we used to travel to a show at the Wells Fargo Center arena. The Innkeepers and staff were very helpful and... More

This is a nice B and B, located in a historic house. The Inn is well-run and clean. It has very steep stairs and the room we stayed in was too small to include a comfortable chair, so if you like to spend much time in your hotel room, you might consider another location. The public "living room" on the... More

When we arrived there was a small mix-up on where to park. We got into the wrong garage that said private parking. When we finally parked, it was $19 a day. The location was perfect for touring Philadelphia for a day. We could walk to everything. We were able to see all the sites as the next day the place... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at the Thomas Bond House on Labor Day weekend 2013. We spent the first night of our trip in the Thomas Bond Sr room. The room was very clean, spacious, and beautifully appointed with period furniture. I loved the large armoire in our room and the gorgeous original floors. The best part was... More
