had a great stay here, with three co workers in order to avoid a tired, run down set of hotel rooms with no place to work together. Very well located, perfect support/service and a very nice place.

Wonderful house, beautifully decorated in a nice neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

When talking to friends about Philadelphia, they usually told us that it was a less interesting city than for example Boston, New York or Washington. Maybe, it is is because of this that I was totally surprised by the city, I loved it! The Rittenheimer Guest House is awsome, located close to shops, restaurants and interesting things to see and large enough to easily accomodate 5 to 6 people!

We loved staying here. It was truly like being home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is charming. I love the colonial furniture. There is history all around you, and it's so close to downtown. We loved the way we were able to meet nightly at the dining room table / living room. I would highly recommend this property. NOTE: If you have limited mobility, the stairs may pose a problem for you. Also, there is no bathroom on the first floor, but this was not a major issue for us. We quickly adjusted. Again, we loved staying here. I also tappreciated the professionalism, knowledge of local venues / attractions, and kindness of the property owner / manager. She was very accommodating as we settled into our stay.

Wonderful row house!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house for a family vacation and loved it!The back patio was a nice spot to eat dinner and with 3 kids, we felt like everyone had their own space at the end of a long day of walking the city. The home is beautifully updated and very clean. The street is fairly quiet too. The extra cost for guaranteed parking was a really great option for us as it allowed us to take our car and visit friends we know who live out of the city a ways. The only recommendation I would make is to remove the washer and dryer from the amenities list as there weren't either and we had packed thinking we could do laundry once during the week but we made do. Other than that - awesome place!
