We stayed here as part of our trip up the CA coast. It was not only beautiful, but had a fantastic breakfast and one of the most beautiful bathrooms we've ever seen in a hotel! (yes, we loved the bathroom!) Only slight down side is the room was a little stuffy (we used the portable fan that was provided in... More

I can't compliment Jack who manages (perhaps owns - not sure?) this hotel enough. We chose the hotel primarily as it was small (11 rooms I think) and I needed some packages to be delivered in advance of stay. Jack was great on the email confirming they could take delivery, and they were put in our room for arrival. After... More

This charming B&B is in the lovely upscale residential area of Pacific Heights. Cozy breakfast room and small study. Reminds of many London Hotels. Rooms are all different with lovely eclectic decor. I was on the the first floor next to the Dining room on the street. (Last room available.) Quiet, clean, cozy. No complaints. Ask to see other rooms... More

We stayed just one night but can see staying more. The B&B is located a few short miles from Union square, giving you the opportunity to explore a different part of the city. We had a very warm welcome. The room was not large, but very nice. The bathroom was totally remodeled with marble and modern fixtures, but didn't take... More

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
