We booked the Dickens Suite on the second floor. We expected a roomy well equipped room but in every category it exceeded our expectations. The suite was very roomy with a queen size bed, lounging chair, desk with chair and flat screen TV with DVD player. It also had a dressing room. large closet with refrigerator, and a large bathroom... More

This was our choice to stay fit the duration of our honeymoon and what influenced my decision was the near perfect reviews and the ravings regarding breakfast. The bar was set high before we arrived. All our expectations were grossly overachieved. No need to continue to rave, just go and experience yourself, you'll be glad you did

For those of you who read my reviews you know I like unique places, and I travel almost constantly with my wife. We stayed at the Dickens House B&B on a surprise birthday trip for her. First, the residence, being a history buff I love the fact that the owner knew about the house and its history. We were the... More

In the center of St. Petersburg Samuel invites you to stay at the most adorable b&b's I have ever been staying at. Being home outside of home, and in the most authentic atmosphere and location. HYGGELIGT is a Danish word foe something absolutely special and as being with best friends or family in peace, harmony, happiness. Brunch with fresh fruit,... More

I have stayed here twice and both times the experience was unsurpassed. This time I was in Perry Snell and it was as lovely as the other room (I cant remember the name right now!) Anyway, lots of charm and incredible proximity to downtown yet super quiet.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at this B&B. We have been to a few B&Bs before. This one was great. The location is perfect if you want to enjoy the downtown of St. Pete. Ed, the proprietor was friendly and very helpful for suggestions as to where to go and what to do. Unlike many B&Bs this one... More

My husband surprised me with a getaway and we stayed at the Dickens House. It by far surpassed what I expected a B&B to be. Everything was spotless, breakfast was awesome and Mr Ed was very delightful. I can't wait to stay at the Dickens House B&B again!!

My girlfriend and I just spent the weekend here at the Dickens House Bed and Breakfast. It was a pleasure from start to finish. The entire house is tastefully decorated, and is as comfortable and functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. It is apparent that Ed, the owner of Dickens House, takes great pride in everything that he does. His... More

I found this B&B through the Lonely Planet Guide. My Partner and I prefer to stay In B&Bs and not big hotel chains and this B&B did not disappoint! Ed the Innkeeper is a lovely person and was very helpful with giving directions, suggesting museums and places to eat. The house is gorgeous (we stayed in the Perry Snell room... More

I chose the Dickens for the promise of great breakfasts. Of the three that we had, none were those featured on the hotel website. The three we had were frittata, scrambled egg burrito, blueberry pancakes. Not bad, not great. We stayed in the "cracker suite" on the third floor, which was quite a climb. If you take the virtual room... More
