I really enjoyed my stay at Thomas Bond House. The house is charming, quaint, and has tons of character. We stayed in Room 204 - as many have mentioned, there are no elevators and the stairs can be a bit steep, so you must consider if that would be an issue with you and your luggage. I found the room...

I made a spontaneous trip to Philadelphia and was lucky enough to get a room at the last second. Perfect location, beautiful rooms, walking distance to Independence Hall and other attractions. The staff was so friendly and across the street from great restaurants.

The minute we stepped into this B&B, I knew this was going to be memorable stay. I felt like I was stepping back into time. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was a good size and clean. Missed the wine & cheese hour, but there were cookies at night, which they left out in the dining if you... More

We were just on a road trip and stayed at 6 hotels altogether. The Thomas Bond House Bed & Breakfast was THE most amazing overall experience of all. The house is just the most charming building, the rooms are lovingly decorated and the whole atmosphere is just amazing. We really enjoyed our stay here and will most definitely be back... More

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
