Good 7.8 From 27 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great spot!
This location was a great fit for what I needed -- a quick, clean place to stay. The manager of the property was very transparent about how to access the building. Super accessible to all of the great things DTPHL has to offer. Would recommend to anyone who is nonfussy when traveling and is looking to walk around the city!

Very good 8.0
Not a typical hotel. It was a different experience. The facility is nice and clean. Very thoughtfully decorated. The owner is responsive. Other than the room, the building's elevator had bad smell sometime during the day. I guess used to remove garbage as well.

A Hidden Gem Near Everything
This was a strange booking, but I mean that in a good way. This was closer to my office and cheaper than hotels in town. The owners provided plenty of information about checking myself in and out. The space was clean and ready for me when I arrived. The B&B is next to everything! I would definitely stay again. The *only* thing I would advise is that this is not a B&B in the traditional sense, because there's no breakfast, but there is a full kitchen w a fridge and dishes available.

Poor 2.0
Avoid like the PLAUGE!!!
There WAS no “stay”! I was completely ripped off by unavailable “management” and by BEWARE of this rip-off joint!!! You can do a whole lot better in Philly’s Chinatown in real hotels where there will at least be staff available to let you in the door and give you access to the room that you paid for AVOID this scam “house” like the PLAGUE!!!
