As a last minute of the year plan , we decided to ring the year in Philly instead of just hitting traffic to see fireworks in NY. After calling most hotels and bnb's with no luck and getting very frustrating, I called the Bella Vista bNb on the 31th at 11:30 and what a wonderful surprise! They not only accommodated... More

We are thrilled that you were able to visit Philadelphia Bella Vista BNB and enjoy your stay with us. We have been doing a lot of renovations, repainting of all of the rooms, suites and common areas recently here at the BNB. Many of the rooms have had new colors, furniture and decorations added to enhance the Bella Vista experience.... More

The Philadelphia Bella Vista has a good location and is close to a lot of city attractions. It is the perfect place to stay for a one night weekend trip, because the prices are very affordable. The room I stayed in was very clean and I found my stay to be quite relaxing. I enjoyed the self -serve breakfast and... More

Dirty, schlocky, noisy - the last time I stayed in a place this bad was on a college trip to Tijuana, Mexico over 20 years ago. From the broken tile in the bathroom, to the crappy furniture, to the dismall lighting this place is a loser. They should be ashamed to charge these prices for such run down accomodations. Find...

Thank you for your opinion. Reading your review I wonder if we are talking about the same place. We have an excellent cleaning staff that works very hard to keep the BNB clean and presentable. All the rooms are thoroughly cleaned prior to the guests’ arrival. Our common areas are also cleaned on a regular basis. The staff is often... More

If you actually like B&B's, this is about perfect; funky, but clean and comfortable. Staff was great and dealt wonderfully with a small snafu (entirely on my end). My room was about twice as large as I would have expected for the price. Great area. Quiet, but short walk to South Street and Italian Market. The hotel also provides you... More

The front entrance looked like it hasn't had anyone clean for quite a while. Benches broken, spider webs everywhere. The entry 'foyer' as very narrow and dark. We had a room on the 3rd floor.

Thank you for your opinions. Sorry you did not enjoy your visit. A few notes for consideration are the door you are referring to is secured from the other side not allowing anyone to open it. As far as the floors it is a house built in the 1860 with wide pine plank flooring. In an effort to restore the... More
