When looking for the best place to stay in Philadelphia, look no further than Lokal Hotel Old City.

Best place to stay in Philadelphia – Old City

Old City is a quaint and trendy, but in some parts a quiet neighborhood. Residents live in restored rowhouses and you’ll be inundated with history. The Betsy Ross House, Elfreth’s Alley,  Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are all in Old City. Within the Old City District you’ll also find vintage and boutique shops, dive bars and trendy eateries. Read at a cute cafe or grab a Philly Cheesesteak form the famous Sonny’s on Market Street just steps away from each other.

Best place to stay in Philadelphia- Lokal Hotel


Lokal Hotel Old City was one of the best boutique accommodations I’ve stayed in. Since most of my travel is for work I especially love to stay somewhere warm and homey and it was exactly that. We had a studio apartment with an open plan which gave us plenty of space to work and relax. Although there is no reception, the service was amazing, the room was even ready early!

Prior to arrival, I received an email with check in details so I knew exactly what to do. Everything was done through a smart pad on the door and made it a breeze.

The little touches in the room were lovely and having a kitchen couldn’t have suited us better. Everything in the space was well thought out. You can tell the owners really care about their guest experiences. The kitchen was equipped with a dishwasher, mini fridge, modern oven and I just loved the tea and coffee station! Honestly, we wanted to spend as much time as we could at the hotel so ended up cooking our own breakfasts here and even ordering in one night! The handy book they had left told us exactly where to order food, groceries or where the best place was to grab a drink if we did find our way out.


Lokal hotel has other locations in Cape May, Maurice River and Fishtown.
