Spacious, incredibly quiet and very comfortable room with our own private terrace looking out onto the Philadephia skyline. Breakfast is supplied each afternoon for the next day. It's nothing special but very adequate ( bread, muffins, bagels, fruit, coffee, hot chocolate, tea). All rooms have a table and chairs. Rooms come with a toaster, microwave oven, refrigerator and coffee maker....

So I am pretty young at 18 and this is the first trip I've booked by myself with my boyfriend so many would say I don't know what I'm talking talking about but I do. A B&B is supposed to be a cute little house where you are greeted as you walk in and you meet the nice people who...

We had such a lovely time at Bella Vista. Our suite was very spacious and comfortable. The decor was charming and we took several photos. I also enjoyed being walking distannt from many tourist sights.

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...

My husband and I stayed here one night in the Presidential Suite. The room was large and clean and so was the bathroom. One of the reasons I chose this room was for the fireplace. Well, there were no instructions on how to work it. My husband figured it out but a guest shouldn't have to be messing around with...

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...

Right near one of the oldest italian restaurant Dante & Luigi's and Magic Gardens museum, Bella Vista B&B apartments are the great place to stay. We spent 2 nights there and felt like home!

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....
