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.

Great stay in Phily

Classic old 3 story row house, well maintained with modern kitchen and bathrooms. Perfect location on quiet side street. Super comfy. AC works great (we needed it).

A perfect center city townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for almost a week in the lead up to our daughter’s wedding- it was perfect! We entertained, walked, and slept close to the action and the townhouse was perfect for us!

Cool old home near Rittenhouse Square

  • 5 of 5

Very kind property owner who bailed us out at the last minute. Another VBRO owner cancelled on us to paint (what?) 19 hrs before we were to check in. Cool place within walking distance to everything. Vittoria was very helpful and responsive. Nice long weekend!

Lovely house and bedrooms

  • 3 of 5

The house is a real surprise even drawing comments from taxi drivers. The bedrooms are beautiful and it is well decorated. However, the kitchen is very small and because of this there is less glassware and crockery than would be ideal for 4 people.

There is plenty of lounging space but because of the layout of the building it is difficult for 4 people to sit together and watch television.

An information pack would have been useful but Vittoria was brilliant at responding to our queries.

The location is great for exploring Philadelphia - all the main historical attractions and galleries are within walking distance.

Rittenhouse Sq. Gem

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Perfect location for our Center City weekend. Close to the subway, restaurants, bars and historical sights. The house is lovely, comfortable beds, nice linens, towels and overall, very well appointed. It was a hot July weekend and the A/C was perfect. Enjoyed the garden patio. Appreciated the coffee and tea.
