Don't expect form this B&B what you usually expect from a Bead & Breakfast: warm welcome, nice breakfast, host available to give you information about Philly... First, most likely you will see nobody. Nobody when you arrive, nobody when you leave. Just nobody. Breakfast is pre packed in a plastic box. Forget any idea of home made marmelades. It's all...

I was in town for one night for a wedding and decided to check out Philly's B&B offerings. I was sold on the Bella Vista as soon as I saw the photo of the pirate lady! I stayed in Moonbeam, which shares the top floor of the middle building with Skytop. The room was small, but cozy, and comfortably fit...

This property is located in 10th Street in the midst of other regular residences. It is not too far from downtown, even if shops are not adjacent, but close by. You need to press the button at the door with the name of the hotel to call the bell. Dan, who owns the place would reply on the door phone....
