My husband & I have grown fond of bed & breakfasts in our travels, and we weren't disappointed with our stay at the Washington Square Inn. Here are a few perks: an ideal location for walking to the Ferry Building, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Coit Tower, Telegraph Hill, City Lights Bookstore and other points of interest (we walked 40 miles over five days--verified by a pedometer); numerous Italian restaurants for every budget; views of Washington Square where we enjoyed watching the Chinese ladies do their tai chi exercises while we ate breakfast; and I must stress, a SAFE neighborhood environment. When I made our reservations there was only one room left for our window of opportunity---room 14 on the second floor. It was slightly inconvenient that the private bath was across the hall, but this is an old restored structure and you just have to understand that. I was never bothered by noise. In fact, I thought the structure was well insulated because when we went outside our room, sometimes there was loud music playing in the room across the hall but we NEVER heard it or any other hall traffic in our room. And yes, the room was small, but we were only there to sleep because really, who comes to San Francisco for a vacation to sit in their room??? My husband & I visited almost all the little neighborhoods of SF and we both agreed that we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The proprietors Maria & Daniel and staff were also very pleasant and helpful. Don't be put off by the negative review, this is a wonderful place to stay IF YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GETTING. It is NOT a new, plush hotel. But some of us enjoy the feel & history of a beautiful, old building. In a heartbeat, we would definitely stay here again.
