A great stay in Germantown.

5 sur juillet 17, 2017

We arrived when it was raining and the weather was beautiful. We were greeted by Molly. She was so nice and very informative about the area. She told us where the trains were and great places to eat. We were upgraded to the second floor room at no additinal cost because her other guests did not come. It was a quaint room with so much character. Lots of room. The room was very cool because of the ac window unit. The house was warm other than that. So glad we had ac it was hot and muggy in PA. We were away from the city which was nice. We used Uber to get around because we had free parking right in front of the house. We love Molly and her hubby. So sweet. The only thing hard for us was the shower. Kneeling and or sitting was a whole new experience. A great place to stay. Our morning continental breakfast was delivered to our room. Warm bread. Fruit. Tea. And coffee. Thanks for a great night and experience

A sweet get-away

4,4 sur avril 29, 2016

My husband and I always enjoy visiting Philadelphia and were looking for an alternative to a hotel. The Germantown Homestay was a perfect fit, located in a neighborhood filled with historic homes and close to parks, and less than a half-hour's drive from center city Philadelphia. Our room was very comfortable and relaxing. The innkeepers, Molly and Pekka, were attentive and welcoming- and a continental breakfast (good coffee) was served outside our door at exactly the time we had requested it! We will certainly return for our next trip. I'm so glad we discovered this cozy gem.

The Best Home Away From Home

Molly and Pekka exceeded our expectations. They were very welcoming and friendly. The room was very clean and large. They provided a great and filling breakfast too. Would recommend this place to everyone.

Amazing House

4,4 sur novembre 15, 2015

There is just something wonderful about this house. Once you walk through the doors you feel this sense of peace and tranquility. I would love to know more of its history. I stayed on the 3rd floor and shared a kitchen and bathroom with Eva, who is nothing short of delightful!

I could not have been more pleased!

4,4 sur octobre 12, 2015

I am so happy to write a review for this wonderful home away from home. I am originally from Philadelphia, and grew up in the southwest part of the city, so I was pleased to find a place close to all of the things I loved; and that made me feel at home. I came in for just one night from Pittsburgh, to attend an Eagles game with my spouse, who is originally from Louisiana but a die hard Eagles Fan. Molly and Eva were warm and gracious host, and made us both feel very welcome. Eva was kind enough to meet us in the late evening when we arrived, and took time to really talk and get to know us. She was full of insight and a true pleasure to chat with. Our room was extremely clean, and although we shared a bathroom on the third floor with Eva, it was a non-issue, as it was clean, stocked, and never a problem to access. We stayed out late to explore the city, and had no trouble getting in, or disturbing the house, which made me feel extremely comfortable. The television in the room, had anything we could think to watch Netflix, Hulu ect.. and we slept comfortably into the late morning without any interruption. I would definitely stay again, the property was so cute and the section of the city is perfect for anyone looking to have easy access to downtown attractions, and the comfort of a quiet neighborhood. We did not eat any breakfast (per my request) so I can't review that, but on the morning of our departure, fresh coffee and fruit was left for us which was lovely. Highly recommended, Chadd and Joy

Home away from home!

4,8 sur mars 20, 2015

I stayed with Molly, Pekka and Eva for the last 4 months while working it the Philadelphia area. I could not have asked for a better place to live! I had my own room and shared the kitchen and bath on the third floor. It was the best of both worlds, I had my privacy when I wanted , but also had people around if I wanted to visit or ask about local restaurants and events. The house is great, the people wonderful and I would definitely recommend them for long term stays as well as short term ones.

Wonderful Relaxing Stay

4,4 sur mars 08, 2015

We spent a wonderful weekend visiting with our daughter and going to the Flow Show. Molly and Pekka are wonderful hosts. They were very attentive and had a great recommendation for an Italian restaurant. The room was beautiful and we had a very restful and refreshing time. Very nice to have the attached bathroom although not being able to stand up to shower was a little difficult. Having breakfast brought up to the room was certainly a very nice touch. Thanks to both of you.

Great Value!!

4,6 sur juin 17, 2013

My husband and I needed a place to stay near friends who live in the city,. We found this B&B, stayed three nights and will definitely return. The location is great, the room spacious and easy to live in. Molly is kind, generous and friendly yet one has plenty of privacy. In addition, it's a great value.

A clean well lighted room, tastefully decorated

4,2 sur janvier 19, 2013

After spending an afternoon delving into archives at the nearby Germantown Historical Society, this was a nice place to relax and unwind, rather than race back to the series of trains that brought me in and out of town. A fascinating collection of books inhabits the room and the hallway outside. A pleasant place to wake up after a good night's sleep. The cost is moderate, breakfast of fruit buns and juice was surprisingly filling.

Mollie is so sweet!!

4,8 sur octobre 25, 2012

I found this great B&B through Drexel University's College of Medicine website, and I'm so glad I decided to stay here! When my boyfriend and I arrived at the B&B, Mollie was there to greet us at the door and she even offered to drive us to go pick up some dinner. We stayed at Germantown for 2 nights and Mollie was so accommodating the whole time. I had to wake up really early both mornings, but she never complained and always had breakfast ready with a smile. The breakfast is delicious too -- an assortment of warm pastries + jam, fresh fruit, your choice of hot beverages, and OJ. Mollie is great to talk to, her house is gorgeous, and her little dog George is so sweet. All in all, everything about the stay was very pleasant and thanks for being such a great host Mollie! Hope to see you soon :) :)
