This bed and breakfast inn has a cozy charm that sets it apart from those corporate chain hotels. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Bathroom was very sleek and modern, with motion sensor lights that automatically turn on and off. I felt like I was in a Victorian bedroom in a mansion rather than in... More

This is a beautiful place to stay, the owners eclectic taste makes it much more interesting than a corporate hotel. The bed was so comfortable and unlike the previous 5 nights in the financial district we were not woken at 3.00am by the street cleaning machine. The breakfasts were great, lots of interest fruit plus lovely bacon and eggs, and... More

The Monte Cristo provides excellent accommodation and highly personalised service. Jack, the manager (owner), is a wealth of local San Francisco advice for travellers. Terri is a very caring lady who cooks breakfast and provides advice also. She was so lovely to us and showed my daughter how to make a paper purse and a clever card trick. The B&B... More

This is the best hotel I've stayed in for years, and I stay in a lot during business travel. The room was excellent, the breakfast and the staff were brilliant. Would go back again in a second. It had aa classy feel unlike other hotel chains.

I stayed here for a change from staying downtown. I like the location close to the Presidio. The room was definitely old fashion elegance. I had comment on the breakfast part because I was busy birding at Golden Gate Park. I would suggest this for anybody who enjoys bed and breakfast hotels.

We stayed for two nights and found it to be a perfect base of operations for exploring the city. Old building with beautiful antique furnishings, but the most modern and updated bathroom ever! And the breakfasts..., we ate so much we never needed lunch! The staff was so helpful they even helped me find a great parking spot where I... More

We spent a few days in San Francisco for tourism and we choose to stay at the Montecristo BB as we where looking for a 5star experience without the hassle of booking a 5 star hotel. The rooms are what you would expect in a BB: not large but very comfortable. Each has its own personality and they are very... More
