We chose the Monte Cristo on the advice of our daughter who lives in SanFrancisco. We found it to be exceptionally clean and charming with a great breakfast and friendly, knowledgeable staff. It is in a quieter section of the city with public transportation readily available and within walking distance of some superb restaurants and shops. The owner Jack offered very good advice about the area. We will definitely return soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If the walls of the Monte Cristo could talk, what stories they could tell, for this remarkable building has been a part of San Francisco since 1875. When the great fire swept the city after the 1906 earthquake, homes were put to the torch on Van Ness Avenue to create a firebreak, and the 'Saloon' not only survived, it served as a refuge for the newly post-quake homeless. This European-style B&B is convenient to the entire city and is at the junction of three great neighborhoods, Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, and Laurel Heights. It is in one of the cleanest neighborhoods in San Francisco with abundant street parking. It is only two blocks to the elegantly restored Victorian shops, Zagat-rated restaurants and antique stores on Sacramento Street. It's within walking distance to shopping on Union Street and Fillmore Street. ... more less
