This was a beautiful outing as a couple. Old town with much love in the air. We loved the location, setting, and the service. Room service was great and quick. If you are ever needing a nice, quiet place in Philly get yourself a room in this welcoming Home❤️

Service is amazing, the place is immaculate clean, the entrance is through the restaurant, the tables are like a little coffee shop in Paris and the lights around them in the patio are very cozy, remain me travel like I were in Europe, I love the plants in the entrance, very pleasant place to relax and enjoy. The bed is very comfy all in white, the bathroom is real marble impeccable. Love full experience.

We stayed here for an impromptu (and much needed) getaway. Hotel staff went above & beyond and our room was simply adorable. Very quaint, and exceptionally clean place to stay. Walking distance to a ton of attractions as well as many restaurants. A HUGE thank you to Antonio & his team for the friendliness and gracious attitude! We will be back!!

Labor day weekend in Philly needed a place to stay. I dont do a lot of research just simply location and price. This hotel was a great surprise. Its small, clean and comfortable. I was on the 4th floor with a view of the night life, could open the balcony door (no balcony just railing) to let in fresh air and the sounds of the streets below. Within minutes you can walk to restaurants, bars and historical sites. Yes, the room is smallish but its not too small. It has everything you need to relax, get a good nights sleep, a great shower (water pressure is outrageous) and a great start to your day. Antonio Conrado, the front office manager processed my reservation and sanitized my key, yes a real key, before handing it to me. Be sure to try the desert at the restaurant in, or on the street outside, the hotel. Great find, my choice for future stays.
