Each room has an attached bathroom that was very clean. The rooms were comfortable. Check-out is at 11am. The nice thing about this B&B is... More

Thank you, Anika, for your kind review. Sorry Hanni, my innkeeper, and I missed you during your one night stay. It is unusual for both of us to be out of town on personal business at the same time but it sounds like Rebecca made a great breakfast and Carol took care of hosting a delightful 3rd in the Burg....

I had a fantastic experience here. It is definitely a small bed and breakfast but the innkeeper was so incredibly helpful and kind. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Harrisburg.

Beautifully restored home facing the Susquehanna River. Clean comfortable rooms in a charming 90 year old house. Conveniently located within walking distance of lots of great restaurants and the State Capitol. Well stocked coffee area on the second floor was a real plus. Friendly and knowledgeable innkeeper, Hanni, was a great help.

We arrived after a long drive from Newark on Labour Day week-end and found the location without any problems. Parking facilities very good and very pleased with bedroom. We chose HELEN and it lived up to everything we had read in previous reviews. Good central location very helpful staff. Cannot fault anything but more breakfast choice would be appreciated.

From booking to checkout, the staff of City House was incredibly friendly, helpful and service-oriented. They made sure our group of 6 had everything we needed. The house and accommodations are also fantastic. Comfy beds. Beautiful architecture. Great spaces indoors and outdoors for sitting and meetings and conversations. We will be staying again.
