We just stayed there with my family and got the Sunrise and Sunset rooms, sharing kitchen and bathroom. The rooms were very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Beds were comfortable enough though bouncing a little much. Breakfast was a huge disappointment: served in the hallway we found apples and old oranges (one was rotten), baked goods in ziplock bags...2 dry english muffins and 2 bagels which seemed to have been previously frozen, small Entenmann's bagels also looking like frozen. There was coffee for you to make in the kitchen and orange juice in the fridge. The place is conveniently located...if you dont care about breakfast then I can recommend it...if you like a nice breakfast to start the day, then go somewhere else (the rooms are no especially cheap)

I came for my daughter's graduation and Philadelphia was just packed. The BNB in general is really nice and comfortable. I had a shared bathroom with another room (Sun Rise) but I didn't have any problems with my "neighbors". I am going to stay in a room with private bath next time. Overall I had some coffee and bagel in the morning. They have 3 buildings so I only saw the host when I got there, I stayed next door. I had problem with the wi-fi but the gentleman rebooted the internet so I was able to be online. So far I enjoyed my stay and I will be back.

My husband & I found our room to be comfortable and charming. The room was relatively large with an adjacent bathroom of good size. I was pleased with the overall cleanliness of both bedroom and bathroom. As for breakfast, the previously mentioned descriptions are very accurate. I'd only add that they will bring yogurt or other items upon request. We did have one surprise when we arrived: a cat lives in the building we stayed in. My husband is allergic, but thankfully we didn't see the cat very much after our first arrival and there was no evidence, such as cat hair, to suggest the cat goes into the guest rooms at all. My husband had brought his allergy medicine but still had some sneezing issues. Just make sure to mention cat allergies when booking a room as the cat is only in 1 of 3 buildings. We missed this fact. Overall, I would recommend this as a very pleasant place to stay.

I have been a constant guest in this bnb and I must say I love it. Me and my husband go a lot to Philly and we always stay there. The location is great, we walk everywhere. The rooms are charming and clean, the service is great. They always help us when we need something. Barbara is a sweet person. The breakfast is good, it's actually more than it should be for a continental bf. I sure recomend this place. Mi & John

I can walk everywhere, the rooms have coffee maker, some goodies on the hall, cereal, milk, fruit, all I need to start my day. The rooms are clean, the service is great, the hosts are very nice people. Barb is someone I can talk for hours. Just love it! John
