Experience warm Akwaaba hospitality in the “City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.” Located in the University City section of Philadelphia, the historic 1880s manor features a gracious porch and grounds along with six guest rooms and suites accommodating up to 20 lodgers. Original, ornate woodwork, stained glass and marble fireplaces abound throughout the inn. Modern-day amenities include on-suite bathrooms, wifi, flat-screen TVs and more.
Enjoy a hearty breakfast in the light-filled dining room, afternoon refreshments in the handsome sitting parlor, and a warm cup of Joe or tea anytime on the welcoming porch, all while listening to the musical sounds of Philadelphia. The decor of each guest room or suite is inspired by music from Philadelphia throughout the decades.
When you head out for a day of work or play, you’ll find Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania a few blocks away, along with dining, shopping and cultural venues. Center City is only 3 miles away. Akwaaba Philadelphia really is your perfectly located home away from home!
