Three night stay at this B&B could not have been better. The B&B is in a beautiful, and beautifully kept and furnished, old home. It is filled with old but comfortable furniture. It's one block from the mansions on King William street (and Madison St. has a mansion and many beautiful homes as well). Right off King William street is the Riverwalk (the tamer end) from which you can take a quick walk to the hopping downtown part or jog or bike for miles in the other direction.
Delicious breakfast is served on china by the owners, Lily and Roland, who are absolutely delightful people.
Every day after our touring (don't miss the the Japanese Tea Garden in Brackenridge Park or the San Antonio Botanical Gardens), we'd sit outside on the veranda in front or deck out back and play cards.
Feel bad giving cleanliness only a 5. There is not a speck of dust in any nook or cranny of the intricately carved old furniture.
