As a last minute of the year plan , we decided to ring the year in Philly instead of just hitting traffic to see fireworks in NY. After calling most hotels and bnb's with no luck and getting very frustrating, I called the Bella Vista bNb on the 31th at 11:30 and what a wonderful surprise! They not only accommodated... More

We are thrilled that you were able to visit Philadelphia Bella Vista BNB and enjoy your stay with us. We have been doing a lot of renovations, repainting of all of the rooms, suites and common areas recently here at the BNB. Many of the rooms have had new colors, furniture and decorations added to enhance the Bella Vista experience.... More

In Philly on business... Stayed at the Bella Vista at the 750 10th St in their Oasis Suite which is size of a small apartment equipped with a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and dining area. Gorgeous old Victorian house, supper comfy bed with what appears to be lovely period furniture, motifs and paintings (well, except the 1970ish breakfast table...odd).... More

they have 2 adjacent buildings, each with 3 floors. if you have luggage, expect to haul it up stairs. they offer a continental style breakfast. so, if you want a big glamorous breakfast, it won't be here. b & b is located in a neighborhood & parking is impossible. if you are a walker, you can walk to the historic...

The Philadelphia Bella Vista has a good location and is close to a lot of city attractions. It is the perfect place to stay for a one night weekend trip, because the prices are very affordable. The room I stayed in was very clean and I found my stay to be quite relaxing. I enjoyed the self -serve breakfast and... More

Dirty, schlocky, noisy - the last time I stayed in a place this bad was on a college trip to Tijuana, Mexico over 20 years ago. From the broken tile in the bathroom, to the crappy furniture, to the dismall lighting this place is a loser. They should be ashamed to charge these prices for such run down accomodations. Find...

Thank you for your opinion. Reading your review I wonder if we are talking about the same place. We have an excellent cleaning staff that works very hard to keep the BNB clean and presentable. All the rooms are thoroughly cleaned prior to the guests’ arrival. Our common areas are also cleaned on a regular basis. The staff is often... More

A bit over the top in the decor department. THESE FOLKS LIKE TO COLLECT STUFF. Maintainence issues that really should be addressed, i.e. Doorknob falling off, loose electrical receptacle, uneven flooring ,rickety chair, was that drops of what? on the bathroom wall? and tub/caulking issue. Entryway extremely narrow as well as passageway dark. The outdoor area also narrow, dark and... More

If you actually like B&B's, this is about perfect; funky, but clean and comfortable. Staff was great and dealt wonderfully with a small snafu (entirely on my end). My room was about twice as large as I would have expected for the price. Great area. Quiet, but short walk to South Street and Italian Market. The hotel also provides you... More

The front entrance looked like it hasn't had anyone clean for quite a while. Benches broken, spider webs everywhere. The entry 'foyer' as very narrow and dark. We had a room on the 3rd floor. There is no elevator, and the stairs are steep with a railing on one side. It's hard to take luggage up those steep stairs with... More

Stayed in the Philadelphian on the second floor. I feared for our safety and the belongings in my room as there was a door at the top of some steps in our room that was not locked but accessible to those on the third floor. I was assured that they havent had any problems, but it didnt make me feel... More

Thank you for your opinions. Sorry you did not enjoy your visit. A few notes for consideration are the door you are referring to is secured from the other side not allowing anyone to open it. As far as the floors it is a house built in the 1860 with wide pine plank flooring. In an effort to restore the... More

I visited Philadelphia alone for business last week and was fortunate to find this place. The area is absolutely adorable and I really enjoyed my stay. I stayed in the Secret Room and had many questions before arriving. My emails were almost instantly answered and I had everything I needed while there. If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton,...
