“Great all round, really enjoyed my stay”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

I would highly recommend the Bed and Breakfast, fantastic location, in a convenient and beautiful area of the city, within an interesting walk of all the major attractions and the train station. The house itself has been done up to the highest standard, my room, the Hunt room was very comfortable indeed, as i'm sure all the rooms are, i slept very well and woke to a very nice breakfast in the dining room downstairs. I got to enjoy the weekday breakfast and also the hot weekend breakfast, which was very nice indeed. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and the wecome folder in the room gives all the information you could ever need on Philly. I would not hesitate to reccomend the B&B and would stay again if and when i visit Philly again, it is excellent value for money.

We have always stayed in hotels when visiting our son in Philly, but I came accross this BnB while searching for rooms. What a stroke of luck, it was cheaper than the hotels, and came with a menu to choose your delicious breakfast. Very charming, we stayed in the Kent room with ensuite and king sized bed, very spacious room. There are 3 BYOB restaurants within 3 blocks of La Reserve which we really enjoy. It is 2 blocks from Rittenhouse Square and 3 blocks from the parking garage which was $20 for 24 hours, just park and walk to everything. Staff was very courteous and helpfu. We have previously stayed at the downtown Sheraton which is very nice and reasonable, but far from the action and the parking was very expensive.

The rooms are large and comfortable and impeccably clean.
The location is central. We walked to almost all of the major sights.
The staff is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable.
The food is a delight, varied, and timely.

My wife and I have stayed multiple times at La Reserve and each time has been fantastic. The service is top notch and the prices are amazing. It's right near Rittenhouse square so we could walk or bus easily to most locations but cabs to go further were less than 10 dollars. The rooms are huge with comfortable beds, excellent weekend breakfast and good weekday continental breakfast and very helpful staff. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: The Independence and Lafayette and Rittenhouse have kitchenettes

This is a lovely B&B, with highly reasonable rates given the location and more importantly the quality of the place. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and tasteful. The staff is extremely nice. And the breakfast is WONDERFUL.

Friendly service, clean rooms. Great price for a hotel in the heart of Rittenhouse Square - walking distance to great restaurants, bars, and shopping. Breakfast was an added bonus. We will definitely be back!

We stayed for 2 nights in late October. The location is perfect, right in the city centre on Pine street which is (we learnt) one if the main streets in Philly so easy access to everything and cute shops up the road, and Starbucks (essential!), ATMs and bars no more than a 5min walk away. The room itself (we stayed in the Marquis, one of the cheaper rooms) was huge, big comfy bed and had large windows facing the street. Breakfast is served each day and we were there during the week so there were fresh bagels, cereal, tea and coffee, fruit, muffins, everything you need! You can also get tea and coffee and biscuits whenever you want during the day. Check in and out was easy and fast, wifi worked perfectly. Made our Philly experience great! Will definitely stay again!
