From the second I entered your magnificent loft I felt the warmth and creativity of your Old City home. Loved cooking here, walking to Reading Terminal Market, dining at the great BYOB restaurants and just hanging out in the comfy Picasso Loft! And so much more to discover and re-visit in this city of Brotherly and Sisterly Love! Kathi, Alexandria VA

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Picasso Loft. I hosted a small dinner party on Saturday night-it was a big success, mostly because of the venue. I’d like to come again for a return visit again soon. Tom, NYC

Wow! We had a great stay and enjoyed cooking, having friends visit. We had two dinners here and did some great team cooking. The loft is very comfortable and convenient, and such a nice change from a hotel. Our friends at the conference were jealous!! I am recommending the loft to friends. Linda, New Haven CT

We loved the neighborhood and galleries. The loft was wonderful. The only problem was we didn’t come sooner and stay longer. Jay and Linda, Baltimore MD., CT

Wow, what can we say. Spending time in Philly with girlfriends united from five different cities for our reunion was already going to be great, but this loft was the icing on the cake. Our stay here has been amazing from all aspects. The loft itself is amazing and every base was covered. The location is amazing and we can’t think of a better location of a place to stay on our next trip to Philly. We loved lounging on the red couch for long talks to catch up. We loved being centrally located and able to tour the city by foot. We loved being able to hang out and cook in the beautiful kitchen. We would be LUCKY to stay here again!
