We have stayed here twice when attending concerts in Dallas. It is a quiet but spacious, well decorated room with large bath and dressing area. Looks out on a lovely courtyard with statue and fountain. Very close to downtown but very private. The owners deliver an excellent breakfast between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., at whatever time you desire. Two... More

We prefer B&Bs when we travel and this is one of the best we have seen. There is only one room but it is elegantly decorated and spacious with plenty of closet space, mini-fridge, desk, fireplace, small TV and shower w/o tub. A stone patio with views of downtown high-rises is pleasant for breakfast when the weather is good. The... More

Very low-key, beautiful accommodations that offer an alternative to your typical hotel. Quiet garden courtyard w/fountain is very relaxing. Walking distance from restaurants. Other reviews have covered it well. This was our second visit & we'd highly recommend it.

The Guesthouse is unlike the stereotypical B&B experience. There are no other guest rooms so privacy is heightened. It is located in the heart of Uptown- a very walkable neighborhood- chock full of restaurants and close to the historic M line trolley (free too!) which connects to the local rapid transit (you literally could leave your car parked- for free!-...

The Allen Guesthouse is a very cozy, romantic hidden gem. Not only is this meditarrian/Spanish guesthouse amazing but it is tucked away in a great little neighborhood. We had sushi at one spot and then drinks and fish and chips at a cozy little pub next to that...all of this is right outside your little cozy space. The unique feature... More

The room is very beautiful and is well appointed. The bed is absolutely the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home. The location is within walking distance of several bars and restaurants. Breakfast is very good and I loved that we could have it delivered when it was best for us. Visiting for my 40th birthday I...

It all begins with driveway parking and a beautiful iron gate. The style of this home has a very mysterious yet inviting Spanish-style feel in the open breezeways and dark corners lit by flickering candlelight. On the way to the room, you pass the lovely private (all yours!) rose garden complete with fountain and high walls that block out the... More

We stayed here on August 12th 2011 to celebrate our 40 anniversary. We're an active couple for 59 and we travel a lot professionally. We have stayed in numerous BnBs across the US. We live only 35 miles away in Denton so have a good handle on what is available in Dallas and Fort Worth. We looked at the others... More

Great location in the center of it all - yet it was very tranquil and relaxing. Highly recommend it for a day or a week.
