This trip was our fourth time here. (We break up our road trip to New York from North Carolina.) I only have great things to say about City House B&B. It's in a great location along the river and easy walking distance to many attractions. We were greeted by Hanni, the new owner. She was friendly and very accommodating to... More

Beautifully restored home facing the Susquehanna River. Clean comfortable rooms in a charming 90 year old house. Conveniently located within walking distance of lots of great restaurants and the State Capitol. Well stocked coffee area on the second floor was a real plus. Friendly and knowledgeable innkeeper, Hanni, was a great help.

We arrived after a long drive from Newark on Labour Day week-end and found the location without any problems. Parking facilities very good and very pleased with bedroom. We chose HELEN and it lived up to everything we had read in previous reviews. Good central location very helpful staff. Cannot fault anything but more breakfast choice would be appreciated.

We stayed two nights at City House, on part of hour 3 week honeymoon. Hanni, the inn keeper was superb! Friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. My husband managed to leave his wallet behind there, and Hanni went out of her way to contact us and post it on to a later destination, we were so grateful. The house is lovely.... More

From booking to checkout, the staff of City House was incredibly friendly, helpful and service-oriented. They made sure our group of 6 had everything we needed. The house and accommodations are also fantastic. Comfy beds. Beautiful architecture. Great spaces indoors and outdoors for sitting and meetings and conversations. We will be staying again.

I recently stayed here with my husband for a random one-nighter while driving through the city. It certainly is a beautiful location and only a 10 minute walk to some cool and tasty restaurants, but honestly, I was a bit disappointed. Breakfast was continental (serve yourself), and our room had some minor issues. The first thing that really surprised me... More

Overlooking the scenic river and bridge (especially pretty at night when it is foggy and lit up in a hazy romantic way), this old brick home has been authentically restored and updated with all mod cons.

This is a beautiful old house right on the Susquehana river with lovely large rooms and a large bathroom. It is also very convenient to downtown Harrisburg. A great place to stay if you are visiting the National Civil War Museum.

Everything about this place is lovely and relaxing. The décor is beautiful. The common rooms are plentiful and inviting. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom sported two things I always appreciate: lots of conditioner and a full-size hairdryer. Breakfast was nice, but not over-the-top as some B&Bs can get: various continental items and a...
