I love this b&b, it's got a great location two blocks away from the downtown area, with its shops and restaurants. My room was huge, though there is a slight musty smell. The breakfasts are huge and excellent in quality, with this addictive organic yogurt, eggs, bread, coffees, teas, orange juice. It was absolutely delicious. The proprietor, Jorgy, was really helpful and friendly. They let me stash a bottle of wine in their fridge. I decided to return to Palo Alto in May and booked a room at the Cowper Inn. I don't intend to stay anywhere else while in Palo Alto.
