I stayed at Anam Cara with my 6-year-old daughter for 2 weeks in the spring of 2017. We were in Philadelphia to visit family and Anam Cara offered us a great temporary home in a beautiful and very safe neighborhood. The apartment was very clean, neat, with very comfortable beds and met all of our needs. Although a bit old-fashioned,...

We stayed at Anam Cara for 2+ months in early 2016. We needed a long term stay that provided comfort, privacy, efficient work space and a variety of local activities. We found them all at Anam Cara in Chestnut Hill ! Teresa offers all those amenities and then some. The Kitchens are fully equipped and stocked well. We always had...

Comfortable, charming, and friendly, I highly recommend Anam Cara as the place to stay when in Philadelphia. Located in the historic Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, it is only a short block walk to the train station providing access to Center City.

Ms. Vessey is a delightful hostess, assuring her guests that their comfort is important to her and tending to whatever concerns they may have. We actually stayed for 8 months in our cozy apartment, loving the proximity to the train station and charming Germantown Avenue, which is replete with lovely restaurants and shops.

the location is fine with easy access to city center...bathroom hasn't been updated since Herbert Hoover was President...clean room, but dated furnishings. The $100 per night rate is not a bargain because it excludes breakfast. O.K. if you need or want a kitchen. (Better hotel value can be obtained in center city) The steam heat didn't prove adequate during colder...

We stay at Anam Cara twice a year as we visit Philadelphia for medical reasons. Teresa is a great host and makes sure that we are comfortable and know how everything works. We'd left the Australian summer for the snow of Philadelphia and the place was a cozy little haven that we thought was a perfect home away from home....
