Charming and Delicious
The breakfast was to die for. Something different every day, from Eggs Benedict to eggs and mushrooms, and always delicious. The house itself was charming, and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. Also ideally located for the University of Pennsylvania, which was where I needed to be. I really enjoyed it, and would definitely stay there again.
It's a house, so the doors aren't necessarily the greatest at blocking out sound. There was a noticeable gap at the bottom of my door, and I could easily hear anyone in the hallway. It didn't bother me, and no one was loud late, but it could be a problem if you're very susceptible to noise. Also, some people might not be comfortable with walking back alone from the university area at night: it's about a mile and tends to be pretty quiet, passing the edge of a cemetery and a park. I have no reason to think it's unsafe, but if such things make you nervous, be aware.
