We stayed here twice in a two week period, the first weekend in the El Classico suite, the second weekend in the Jardin suite. These are not typical B&Bs, as no one feeds you breakfast, but we loved them anyway. It was close to the park (but the main part of the park like the zoo or the museums was not an easy walk because of the roads and how the park is laid out). We found it very central to all the places we wanted to go - Hillcrest was only a few miles, there were some coffee shops within walking distance, as well as at least a couple places to eat, and Gaslamp was just two or three miles away.
It's very clean, beautifully decorated, and well kept. The Classico does not have the wonderful deck that the other two have, but it does have an old, but functional stove, so I could cook breakfast. The Jardin had the most gorgeous deck, but no stove (a toaster oven and microwave). I did manage to make an omelet anyway, but would have preferred a stove as i had the first weekend. The wireless worked flawlessly in both suites. The owner was very nice and helpful over the phone, and went to lengths to include a nicely put together packet of information about the area including a small map.
There is no heat in El Classico, but there was a small room heater and it was all that we needed (it was a little chilly the nights we were there). Jardin had a wall heater which worked well.
My only complaint was noise - not from the neighborhood, but the people in the other suites. I admit I am a moderately light sleeper, but I don't wake up with just any noise. It takes a bit to wake me - once I am awake, I often cannot go back to sleep. These three units used to be one house and it was partitioned; because of this, there was no method originally installed for reducing noise between the units. Most of the time, noise was not a problem at all. One time I simply noticed noise, one time it was a problem. In the Classico one morning, I could hear (very clearly) the occupant's conversation on his cell phone - I was in the living room space and he was in his living room space (which used to be connected). In Jardin, the bed is below the living space in Classico - someone had on heavy shoes, and I could hear them walking back and forth, back and forth for at least 45 minutes. The walking woke me up and I couldn't get back to sleep until they actually left for the morning. Fortunately, I didn't have to get up early.
That said, I would go back. It was wonderful, in a nice area, easy access to many things, and very inexpensive for what we got.
