I've much experience staying in bed and breakfasts. Normally, you have certain expectations about your bed and breakfast. I stayed at this B&B with my daughter 7-11 July 2015. One of the most memorable moments was when we first walked in and my daughter tries the bed and states "I don't think I'll ever get out of bed". Yes, the... More

My partner and I stayed here on the first leg of our Texas road trip. The house is a Victorian property and is situated probably 15 minutes walk to the restaurants and bars on the 'Riverwalk'.Room was spacious with comfortable bed. All in all, a pleasant stay.

We were in San Antonio for the Missions Marathon Half and the King William Area provided close proximity. We also enjoyed the convenience to downtown San Antonio and walking distance to dining on Alamo Street. The walking tour of the King William District was literally right at our door. The accommodations were very quiet and quite comfortable. The property is... More

A Yellow Rose Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located within walking distance of all the top sites of downtown San Antonio. I thoroughly enjoyed walking to the River Walk, Market Square, La Villita and The Alamo. My room was large and had lovely historic charm. The King William neighborhood is diverse with a wide range of historic homes of all... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed the neighborhood. Living here has given us an appreciation for historic districts that we didn't have before. Now, we tend to take it for granted and it's nice to have your remind us how lucky we are to live here. More

Loved the neighborhood. Easy to walk places or catch a trolley. Deb made a fabulous breakfast and delivered it to our door every morning. Clean and restful spot. A fun escape from the cold weather up north. Deb and Kit are friendly and helpful hosts.

Large clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed. We stayed at the Bordeaux room. One block from King William street with beautiful old houses and two short blocks from the River Walk with easy walk to the center of the city. The Mad Hatter for breakfast and lunch around the corner, the Bliss restaurant less than a mile away. We loved... More

Meeting Syeira was the highlight of our stay at A Yellow Rose. The location couldn't have been better. We were able to walk everywhere. Proximity to the River Walk, to many local restaurants, the Blue Star Complex and even to the Enterprise Car Rental made it ideal. The King William Neighbourhood is beautiful. The Magnolia room and bed was very... More

We spent two nights in this charming B&B. We didn’t miss too much the lack of personal welcome as the owners were available on the phone. Our room ("Bordeaux") was large and nicely decorated with ancient furniture. The bed seems also quite old, mattress very soft. Free and fast WiFi. The room has a large bathroom. Location: very central, close... More

Thanks for taking time to write your review. I'm so glad you had a good time and apologize for the creaky ceiling. These historic properties have their charm but they also have things that are not so charming... like creaks. More

This was a comfortable and private place tucked away from the touristy parts of the city, but still accessible and in a historic neighborhood. The entire Provence Room suite is very spacious with tasteful decor. The huge bathtub turns into a jacuzzi and is a relaxing place to end long days of sight-seeing with a mug of tea. The owners...
