Quiet and clean B&B with outstanding food.

Excellent time in Philadelphia

A very comfortable house and a nice place for a walk in downtown Philadelphia. Chelle Greenfield is a perfect host, discreet and avalable whenever needed. Chelle's breakfast is an absolute bliss, with a good sense of humor. I warmly recommend South Bridge B&B!!! Thanks Chelle! Frederic

Great Place to Stay

Super convenient location if you want walking access to Penn, downtown and the historical district. The room is a bit small, but clean and comfortable and the owner is very personable.

Close to University City

The owner is engaging and knowledgeable, the breakfasts are fantastic! We liked the kitties and the location can't be beat for us. It's a 15 walk to the commuter train station (which connects to the airport) and about a 30 minute walk to Philadelphia Station (which connects Amtrak).

A nice Urban B&B

Great location and a terrific hostess - gracious, helpful and a terrific cook. The mattress was very soft and the carpets and shower could have used a good cleaning.

This was my second visit at SB-BNB. Was wonderful! Very Comfy, Cozy and GREAT location. Easy to get to and once there, easy to walk to restaurants, museums, dining etc.

Fantastic night's sleep and even better food

4.6 on December 13, 2013

The room we stayed in is tastefully themed, the bed is extremely comfortable and warm (which was a bonus on one of the coldest nights in Phily). The shower is great with fantastic water pressure. As mentioned in previous reviews the custom gourmet breakfast cannot be praised highly enough. Very close to all the tourist attractions, buses, but we walked everywhere. Parking was not difficult to find in one of the side streets.

My 4th visit to this wonderful B&B. Very convenient, gracious hostess. Excellent new breakfast entree.

Cosy setting in a charming area

4.0 on November 01, 2013

Cosy setting in a charming area of Philadelphia, about a 15- / 20-minutes' walk from Rittenhouse Square. The proprietor is welcoming without being overbearing. There is a working piano, which one is allowed to play (a delight). A home-cooked breakfast is included in the stay, as are her delicious cookies. Note: There is a cat in the house, though thankfully cat hair does NOT cover the furniture. Parking can be challenging if arriving after 6pm. Very nice café 2 blocks from the guesthouse: Gavin's.

The best B&B I've ever stayed at.

4.8 on October 15, 2013

The breakfast was hearty, delicious and different each day. There's a Mason and Hamlin Baby Grand Piano in the living room. My daughter practiced piano and enjoyed the warm, beautiful sound while we stayed. Excellent service. Owner was super friendly and helpful.
