Verified Reviews of Penrose Hotel Philadelphia Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"The staff is amazing."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel has the friendliest people I have ever met. From Vera, the receptionist, who not only gave us some discounts and freebies but also partied with us, to Reggie and Tom in the bar who made our pre wedding party one we will always remember; this hotel's staff is amazing. They were helpful, sweet and professional. I loved my stay at the Penrose and will definitely be back.

"It Fits The Price"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It appears to me that this is an old structure and that it is undergoing renovations even though it was not evident except from the sign in the lobby. The bathroom fan is too noisy and needs to be replaced. The air conditioning unit/heating system also seed to be old. That breakfast is included in this price seems to be a measure by the owners to attract clients. Since I did not spend much wake time there, it suited my needs and the price was good.

"Don't stay here"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Building in disarray. Undergoing remodeling. Rooms are in terrible condition. Outlets in room do not work. No light bulbs in any lamp, bed is like a rock. Bathroom gross (not sure it was even cleaned). Comforter had burn hole in it, elevator was shaky. Check-in took one hour! Housekeeping not available after 8, so if you need a light bulb you have to go get it yourself. Not worth 130.00 at all!
