    Location

    Room small cramped, needs refurbishing. Couldnt close curtains, noisy street and too hot, couldnt control temp. I had paid for two nights but left after one. Bed not made and room not cleaned when I returned to the room, so I walked out.

    The location of the hotel was perfect for the trip we made. When looking for a hotel, we read the reviews of previous guests, which hit the nail on the head. One review complained about the noise from the bar downstairs, but i found this more amusing than anything & it added to the atmosphere of the area. The hotel is located in the "Old City" which doesn´t really look so old. It´s walking distance to all the sites of B Franklin´s glory & The Liberty Bell. Would definately stay there again, as we only stayed in Philly for one night & regret not having a few beers in the bar downstairs.

    The new comforter on the bed.

    I would never stay in this hotel again. It is on a noisy street, it is very small, run-down, shabby and where improvements have been attempted, they are badly done. The curtains fell down when we closed them, the bed is small and hard, the bathroom is so tiny even a small person can't turn. It gives a terrible impression on arrival with a shabby door, run- down street, dirty stairwell, no directions to the 'office' on the second floor. The office is a complete shamble with unfinished walls, wires everywere, dirty. Hallway was recently painted. No elevator so you have to carry bags up two flights of stairs. Door to the storage room was damaged, furniture piled in the alcove, and the rooms are above a raucous bar. Never again, despite the price!

    Superb

    The hotel has charm, far from the luxurious but anonymous chain hotels.

    The rooms are small, but it's somehow endearing.

    Good location, friendly and efficient staff

    Lack of parking, room size (understandable given the age of the building)

    How short it was. 5 min

    That it turned out to be a halfway house. Tiles in the shower were brown and grimy. Paint wad chipping. No way of locking the door. Ac unit installed in window using duct tape. Hallway also functioning as a junkyard.

    Fabulous

    The location is fantastic! Can walk just about everywhere - great historic neighborhood. Also it's significantly cheaper than just about everywhere else.

    It's a struggle to get your luggage up & down 4 flights of stairs! Also the hotel does not feel secure - the locks are old, there is no security at night. I ended up with a double room - the bed was great, but the fold out was horrible. I'm glad no one had to use it! It was uncomfortable to even sit on.

    Location, location, location--- If you are seeking a place to sleep and shower in a hotel that is quiet and secure at night and spend your days walking to visit the historic sites and theatre, this is a great deal! It is being refurbished, and I will plan a return stay.
