We just returned from a 7 night stay at WSI. This was our second time to stay there. We stayed in one of the premium rooms with a private bath. The staff were very friendly and always helpful and courteous. Our rooms were always kept very clean and made up every day. We had the option to have breakfast served... More

We have stayed at 2 other Four Sisters inns (in L.A. and Santa Monica) so that we had big expectations for our visit to S.F. We stayed here for three nights. It is expensive. The Inn is well located at Washington Square in the heart of little Italy and close to Chinatown. It is an old gracious mansion. The main... More

Really a great area. Prices typically high for SF. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a noisy location, but that didn't bother us. The rooms could use an update. The carpets really need to be replaced.

This was our second visit to WSI. The staff were accomodating and friendly. The room, however, was not overly clean. The carpet had stains and looked old and grotty. The duvet cover and shams needed to be laundered. Our room faced Stockton Street and was very noisy. Not their fault, but there are quieter rooms in the back/ This inn... More

Great place to stay and enjoy San Francisco. Near a lot of restaurants. The breakfast and also the wine and cheese was delicious. Friendly team. Beautiful rooms. And a family neiborhood. Free wi-fi. The parking was not so far, but it was a little expensive, it should have some discount for costumers.

Wow...room 15 is not just 'cosy' as the literature suggests, but microscopic. Our arrival wasn't bad although the local traffic was difficult at 6:30pm. Because there is a restaurant next door, we were able to pull into their valet area and unload. There was a chap from the hotel who schlepped our bags up to the 2nd floor - and... More

We found this B&B online after our vacation rental was cancelled by the owner. I am so happy that we did! From the second that we buzzed in we were treated extremely well. The concierge helped us with our bags and we were checked in promptly. The lobby and breakfast area is extremely well-kept and clean. What to expect: coffee,... More

This is a great place to stay if you really want to experience life in North Beach. Facing Washington Square Park, the inn is just steps from all the goings-on in the popular North Beach area of SF. The inn is small and like a European boutique hotel. And like in Europe, there is no lift, so you will schlep... More

Nearby to Little Italy, Chinatown and the wharf. Very small room, sidewalk right outside the one window, no A/C, and with parking and tax was quite pricey for one night for this type room. Bathroom was smaller than a cruise ship with inoperable fan.

Although this has been rated in the past as a "Select Registry" Inn, it does NOT deserve such a rating. We experienced dirty carpet, stained pillow shams, unclean bathroom tile. The "air conditioning" was a large ceiling fan and a white electric plug in fan we placed on a chair. When we pulled up and handed our car keys to... More
