Has the feel of an old, upscale boarding house - dark wallpaper, historical SF pictures, worn hardwood floors. We stayed in room #1 which was an odd layout for just 2 given the ante room, probably great for 3, in the front of the house - double pane windows keep out street noice but limit fresh air. Pros: Bathroom and Bed, the keys to a good stay, are new and lovely (even has a Toto automatic toilet). Breakfast was delicious and "feel" is very comfortable. If you are looking for a "home away" hotel alternative, this is a good option in SF.

- 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
