Thankfully, we only spent one night here.(Oct 17th) No A/C in the rooms. I was not aware of this at the time of the booking. One window, no screen and therefore no cross ventilation. We had a table fan which didn't do much. The bathroom was the best part of the room, very updated. The owner very unfriendly and didn't... More

We just returned from spending two nights at Monte Cristo. We booked this bed and breakfast because of its location as we wanted to be away from the noise of downtown. Our room was very nice and had everything we needed. Breakfast choices were great--the gorgonzola quiche was delicious. Terry does an amazing job taking care of everyone's needs. The... More

Parking is the obvious problem in San Francisco. There is plenty of street parking but there are also plenty of cars and near a campus, so finding a spot was a bit of a challenge. The Inn itself was superb. Room was tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and a comfy bed. There were more TV channels than one could ever... More

My usual haunts were booked, and I am glad they were. The Monte Cristo does everything well with none of the foo-foo so common in quaint B&Bs. It was like staying in an authentic small hotel of yesteryear - with sensible modern technology. Like the lights on sensors, or the Toyo heated cleansing toilet, or the HD TV. The common... More

Our bed was very comfortable ...... great sheets and a very clean modern bathroom. Nice shampoo's etc too. There was tea and coffee... More

We just returned from 2 nights at the Monte Cristo and were very happy to have stayed there. The hosts were superb and helped with transportation tips, and they were excellent with gluten-free diet restrictions. They offered gluten-free made-to-order eggs, as well as gluten-free breads and granola. They even had gluten-free cookies available in the afternoon and evening. We liked... More

As a single older traveller from England visiting family I chose this Bed and Breakfast for its seeming "Englishness". It was a good choice as it was small enough to provide personal service but offered lovely comfortable rooms with very modern bathroom facilities and an excellent breakfast. It was also well situated for public transport. Would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed for two nights last week. A cab ride from the airport costs $50. You can catch the bus just down the street and get anywhere in the city. Jack had our room ready early and gives great recommendations on getting around and where to eat. Our room was very quiet and the heated toilet seat... More
