I was shocked. The historical house was beautiful and wonderfully located only a few blocks from the famous Alamo Square park. The actual room we stayed in (the Enrico Caruso room) was very nicely decorated. But, there was no breakfast the next morning! They had a "continental breakfast" available - which basically amounted to cereal and toast. This was shocking... More

Stayed here late October 2013. We were in the Jack London room. Very tidy and the turret was super cute! Only problem I found with room was lack of power sockets near bed, but I guess that comes with and older building. Sharing the bathroom with the room next door was never an issue, and if we were desperate there... More

Chateau Tivoli is a boutique hotel / guesthouse in San Francisco. The building, its interior, its decoration scream original period detail. The hotel has modern creature comforts such as wifi and en-suite bathrooms, but other than that you feel blissfully transported back to another era. It is a period building, so there is no double glazing and no air conditioning... More

On the upside, this is probably the most gorgeous house I've ever stayed in. The room (we were in the Isadora Duncan) was spacious, clean, with a beautiful, high, painted ceiling and a nice, comfortable bed (slightly short for me, but I'm 6 ft tall, so almost every bed with a foot board will be short for me). It was... More

We only needed a place to stay for one night and are glad we came across this reasonably-priced Bed and Breakfast. As we had just come into town very early in the morning after a cruise, we were happy that Meredith of the Chateau welcomed us in the morning and allowed us to keep our luggage there while we explored...

We loved the location of this lovely lady,- this Victorian charmer. We did not have a car during our 5-day stay and could easily access several bus routes from this ideal spot. its only a few blocks from the BART station, too, for an easy trip to or from the airport. Our accommodation was on the third floor, in a... More

Because our youngest son was with us for two of our three night stay at Chateau Tivoli, we chose the Lola Montez "basement economy suite." It was a superb choice: The suite was spacious, comfortable, and quite affordable. Because of its private entrance, the basement suite was well-suited for our bicycles, our primary means of travel while in "The Cool... More

In San Francisco, there are lots of homeless everywhere in different neighborhoods. I am underlining this fact because when I suggested Chateau Tivoli to a solo woman looking to stay in a safe neighborhood, one of the destination experts replied back and I quote: "It's not about being in a residential area. It's about being in one that has pockets... More

I spent three nights here in February and base my high rating on the ideal location and history of the property. I found it convenient for walking and taking the bus to get to good restaurants and tourist sites. It is quite close to Golden Gate Park. The wine hour is a saving grace with opportunity to meet people and... More

My wife and I spent four nights here last week and, from the champagne breakfast to the wine & cheese happy hour it exceeded our wildest expectations. The hosts and guests couldn't have been nicer. The neighbourhood is charming (take the walking tour) and convenient to where you want to be by prompt taxi service. If a "painted lady" is... More
