Wireless internet is available.

Each morning your hostess will provide a continental buffet with coffee, tea, fruit or juice, toast, assorted jams, and cereals.   

This B&B is within walking distance of the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Presbyterian Hospital and the Art Museum. Interesting restaurants and cultural activities are nearby.

“We enjoyed our stay.  Our hostess was very helpful in terms of helping us figure out how to get around and giving us suggestions of things to see.  It was very nice after a day of touring in the big city to come back to a home like atmosphere.” MS
