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

The Thomas Bond House is right across the street from the City Tavern on 2nd St in the historic district of Philadelphia. Anthony is one of the new owners and he is a very kind, and attentive to his guests. The rooms are small, but everything is beautifully appointed. We enjoyed the early evening complimentary wine, and the hot breakfast... More

Chrissy and I really appreciate your kind remarks. As much as I would love to say that I am one of the new owners of The Thomas House, Chrissy and I are the new innkeepers.

Thank you so much for your kind words! I was hoping you would be so kind as to let me know which room you were staying in. I do not want to provide uncomfortable beds or pillows, so I would like to replace the bed and pillows in that room. Since I have a room on the first floor, I... More

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

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
