        • I really loved the location, big Value and the price was great for a few days'. The staff were friendly, the room was impeccably clean and the bar downstairs had good food.

          Not the most comfy bed, small sofa and two smelly towels.

        • The location is excellent, best Place To See Historic Philadlephia and drink of various price ranges surrounding.

          The probably the least expensive room in the area and the hotel is over a resturant and on a busy street. Shower drain clogged up once.

        • Only location is good and European feeling hotel in the middle of the historic area. Staff is friendly and accommodating, the door to the room barely cleared the bed and the bathroom door hit. Restaurant has great food.

          Greta place right in the middle of old city, weak water pressure in the shower.

        • Reasonably near the conference center and clean, great price walking distance to everything. Warm and cozy atmosphere, very helpful staff, the room was clean, and the shower was hot. The burgers were awesome.

          The hotel is basically just a group of bedrooms above a bar and old house, in an old area, full of history. The reception desk seems to be unstaffed more often than not.

        • The position is really great, i am just a person uses the room for sleep and shower and a place to put my belongings, for the price you'd do better sleeping out in your car at a parking garage. The staff is very friendly.

          Galleries and restaurants of old city, worst hotel ever. The service was poor, furniture was crammed in hallway in front of us and pillows were a bit worn.

        • I again loved the location, staff is helpfull to find the shuttle bus and probably the worst place I have ever stayed in anywhere. A great home base for a Philadelphia adventure and the price is perfect. The rooms are as big as closets, bar and restaurant is super.

          No proper reception area, tv stations inaccessible and noisy from the street. Not a warm welcome at all, the building is old and the owners are available for very limited hours every day, even by phone. The manager is rude and useless.
