Burbridge Street B&B
Ranked #13 of 25 Philadelphia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Located near historic sites, the B&B is a good point of departure to visite Germantown which includes a lovely street full of boutiques ranging from restaurants, art galleries to kitchenware. The owner of the B&B, Marney (host), is a good reference when it comes to get ideas about what to visit.

The house by itself has been modernized and renovated which enhances the experience. The only thing missing for me was blinds in the bedrooms windows. On vacation, waking up early, isn't always what we wish for. The other thing to be aware of is that unlike many B&B's there is no sign with the name of the B&B on the property. The only way to locate it's by the adress.

The breakfast was diversified and nourishing. Marney, whenever possible tries to accomodate her guests. The fact that she speaks three languages is a sure plus for any visitors.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Burbridge B and B and LOVED it! Its a beautiful vintage house about 20mins drive from center city, that's been renovated to modern standards, with big rooms and lots of interesting decor.

Rate includes bed, a great breakfast with fresh fruit and homemade breads (peach loaf highly recommended!) and tea/coffee to your hearts content. There's also free wifi throughout the house and hot beverage supplies in every room (replenished daily). Oh, and free street parking throughout the day.

To top it all off, the innkeeper Marney is an absolute delight. Full of interesting facts about Philly and recommendations for what to eat/see/do. She puts lots of effort into making guests happy...daily breakfast preparation, daily room tidying etc. Great company...its almost like staying with a relative (who you like!). Marney is pretty laid back...no curfue etc and guests have their own keys. Breakfast is at 8 and she'll join you if you're there by by then. If you want to wake up later, she'll leave the food out for you!

Other company in the house includes 2 super friendly cats (i don't really even like cats but was snuggling with these!) and guests in up to 3 additional bedrooms across 2 floors. There's a shared bathroom on every floor, which are kept incredibly clean. The sharing wasnt an issue for us as there was no one else but Marney on our floor, but I don't think itd be too bad even with the other room occupied.

All in all this was the right choice for us. A great little place in a close-to-downtown location at an unbeatable price. Thanks Marney!

We slept well all three nights. This homey restored three-story retains it's historic charms without compromise of covenience and comfort. Marnie knows and loves Philadelphia and was eager to help us have a great time visiting historic sites and navigating this great city, new to both of us. The breakfast was healthy and varied, better than what we have at home.
Our trip was half business and half tourism. We were in the front and had no bothersome traffic or neighbor noise. The house is well-secured. We will be happy to go back. It is a great value. A heater in the room would have been nice for us California desert dwellers.

Burbridge St B&B is a comfortable and affordable place to stay in Philadelphia. It is about 8 miles from the Centre city but is quite well connected by train. A 20-min ride on the Chestnut Hill West regional rail line takes you from the Market East or 30th Street stations in the city to Tulpehocken station, which is a short 10-min walk from the B&B. I checked-in around 11pm and did not have any problem locating the place (make a note of the house number which you will need to locate the place). The host Marney had provided detailed directions and was happy to accommodate the late check-in. She has loads of information, brochures, maps etc on places to visit in and around Philadelphia.

The B&B is a spacious Victorian-era house. I stayed in the Maplewood room on the 3rd floor. Although the house seems old, it has been maintained quite well and seems to have been renovated. It has all the modern amenities one would need including hot shower, wifi, comfortable bedding, study desk and chair, place to store/hang clothes etc. There is a shared bathroom on each floor. Nice and wholesome breakfast is provided around 8am everyday which includes a large selection of fruits, cereals, breads, tea/coffee etc.

Whether you are there for business or as a tourist, you are better off starting the day early as the train frequency to Tulpehocken station after 8pm is only once every hour and the last train is around 11:30pm. The B&B can be booked over email and Marney will provide you all the relevant details. Overall a comfortable accommodation!

We stayed two nights here. The best thing about this B&B is its location, only a few minutes away from the light rail station that takes you into City Center. The host is very friendly and talkative. Breakfast was served at 8 am, which was a little early for our taste but we weren’t sure if we could have requested a late time. Breakfast consists of a variety of breads, cereal and fruit, which held us over well until lunch. The host will recommend places in the area to eat, along with fun things to do in City Center.
The house is very old but has modern accommodations. The bathroom on the third floor was very clean, and the shower pressure was excellent. The bed in the 4 poster room was very creaky, but comfortable. If you don’t like cats, shut your door otherwise the very friendly cat will come in. I’m very picky in terms of cleanliness and while the room was dusty, I felt comfortable in the bedroom and bathroom. There were no litter boxes in our bathroom. We had no trouble finding the location (the number is as indicated). One thing I would like improved is clear checkout times- this could vary depending on whether a new guest is arriving, but it would be nice to know ahead of the visit how soon we need to leave. Overall, we would recommend this place.

This is a good place to stay, especially if you want the total immersion of staying in someone's home. Marnie was very trusting and hospitable, and the bedroon was lovely.
This would be a good location to arrive at by car. I was on foot, but the local train station (Upsal), was cheaply and easily accessed from 30th St. Philadelphia.

Marney is a true B&B expert. She is welcoming and accommodating and filled with information about the city. The Germantown neighbourhood has got alot of character, the houses are huge and unique.

6234 Burbridge is no different. It feels like a house filled with stories and I felt like I was staying in a home not just a B&B.

The breakfast each morning was a highlight as the fresh fruit, selection of artisan breads and conversation were all top notch. There are cats in the house but I thought they just added to the charm.

I left my favourite t- shirt behind and Marney even went to the trouble of sending back to my house overseas.
