My husband and I stayed with my sister and husband for 3 nights. We had a great stay and the B & B is centrally located to all the sights. Chrissy was very helpful offering great sightseeing tips, and cooked up some great breakfasts. We also enjoyed our evening discussions with Craig, the innkeeper, who also gave great restaurant recommendations....

My husband and I, and three of our fellow history loving friends stayed here during the grand opening of the National Museum of the American Revolution which was one block away. The B&B could not be more perfectly situated and lovely. The building is restored and preserved and you truly feel transported back to 18th century life in old Philly....

This b and b has a great location, right next to Society Hill Sheraton, a few blocks to Independence Hall, and close to bus (42, 21) and Market Frankford Line. I stayed in room 305. The bed worked for me as a solo traveler of 6 feet tall. It would be a tight fit for a couple who's taller than...

This B&B was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in historical Philadelphia. No car needed although a parking garage is located next door. The B&B has two rooms on the third floor that connect which made it perfect for us, a couple traveling with a 10 year old child. Each room has it's own private bathroom and...

Really lovely home open to guests. Very gracious hosts, and a wonderful breakfast. Bed was squeaky, and rooms are small. Otherwise, this was a perfect stay. City Tavern is accross the street, parking deck next door, and a few blocks from Independence National Historic Park.

Hi, William. Thanks for taking the time to write this excellent review! We really appreciate it. I'm sorry about the bed, but I am happy to tell you, it's fixed. Well, replaced actually. There was some bent metal in the frame. I'm sorry I didn't notice this and get it replaced before your stay. We hope to see you again!...

If you are into history, this is a great hotel to take you back in time. Beautiful original floors in our room, the fireplace was cozy and nice at the end of a cold day. Tastefully decorated with an updated bathroom that still felt "old". The hosts are very cordial and pleasant, happy to help you with any of your...

We're locals and decided to stay in Philadelphia to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We chose to stay at the Thomas Bond house and the house and employees were awesome. We checked in late, and Craig couldn't have been more helpful. When we finally got there, he gave us a coupon for a place we already had that saved us...

This was my second stay at the Thomas Bond House and both times have been wonderful. The rooms are a little snug (to be expected with a historic building) but are clean and comfortable and the showers are great and never run out of hot water! The staff was friendly and knew all the ins and outs of the city....

Hi, Erica. Thank you so much for writing this excellent review. We enjoy having you and Steve stay with us for the holidays!

Thomas Bond House is an historic alternative to impersonal lodging. Step into the 18th century in this exquisitely restored circa 1769 gem.
