Translating to “beautiful sight,” Bella Vista was the first Philly neighborhood settled by Italian immigrants. The original heritage informs much of what exists today, but the family-oriented residential pocket has blossomed into a fascinating microcosm of South Philadelphia itself.
Bella Vista’s best-known feature is the Ninth Street Italian Market, the oldest operational open-air hub of its kind in America. Welcoming the presence of other cultures — Vietnamese and Mexican, most prominently — has helped the area grow into much more than the sum of its once-monocultural parts.

About the Host, Sandy
I am a well-rounded interior designer. I love traveling the world and hosting world travelers at my bed & breakfast here in Philly. As an innkeeper I have been told that I am friendly and helpful. Loftplex Bed and Breakfast is not just your ordinary B&B. It is a beautifully designed environment filled with paintings, sculpture and photography. It is furnished in an eclectic style with uber modern pieces as well as antiques. The roof deck features a panoramic view of the city skyline. Loftplex is centrally located and in the liveliest section of town within walking distance to everything Philly!
