“Our home away from home in Dallas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2009

This is a jewel of a find in Dallas. A quiet escape in a very busy city! The room is in a library atmosphere, comfortable king bed, in an inviting Tuscany setting complete with a very private courtyard. The chef will tailor the breakfast to your timeframe and tastes. You won't be disappointed!

Beautifully decorated rooms, very quite even though we were in the heart of the city. The rose garden outside the room was also very beautiful. The room had a wall-full of various books making it a perfect place to hangout and relax to the soft music playing. The morning breakfast was especially delicious, from the fresh orange juice to the perfect french toast. We loved everything about the room and location. The only problem we had was finding the place in the dark but the place is right next to a tapas place so if you read this you will find it easily.
In short, highly recommended for romancing your significant other.

I booked a stay at the Guesthouse on Allen Street based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor and on the location, which seemed quite appropriate. The guesthouse is situated in a residential street (with 2 or 3 pubs and restaurants), near the historic and picturesque M trolley line and within a walking distance of the Culture & museums district (the guesthouse is only a few steps from the outstanding new Opera that’s scheduled to open by the end of 2009, a signature building by Sir Norman Foster).

The guesthouse itself is quite discreet, let’s not say invisible from the outside. Inside, it’s a modern and very tasteful property with spotless beautifully appointed rooms featuring all amenities one could need: I had the ground floor room with the fountain garden, a fireplace, plenty of books, a superb king size bed, a dressing room and bathroom with a choice of soap, shampoo, lotions, etc. It is a great value as such an accommodation could easily cost elsewhere the double of the 125USD rate.

The rates include a homemade breakfast brought to the room at the time of your convenience and Kay; the owner prepares whatever you wish. Eggs are delicious. A complimentary light snack is also offered during the afternoon.

The Guesthouse on Allen Street is definitely a state of the art address in Dallas, a place not to be missed.

I have just returned from a 5-day stay at the Guesthouse on Allen Street in Dallas. This beautiful Bed & Breakfast was beyond comparison. Relaxing in the adjacent rose garden with wine and Hors d'Oeuvres each evening was such a delight. The interior was spacious, exceedingly comfortable, and designed so exquisitely. All the amenities were there including wireless internet connection. The Uptown location along with a 1-2 minute access to Central Expressway, I-35 and I-45 made this accommodation convenient to nearby entertainment, museum and dining sites as well as other Dallas locations. The Hosts were charming, unobtrusive and accommodating. I already have booked my return stay!

The Guesthouse on Allen Street was a fabulous bed and breakfast! I had to spend a week in Dallas for business and wanted to stay in the uptown area near my client, but did not wanted to try to find something a little quieter than a hotel.

The guest house on allen was quiet, had a superb location in uptown within walking distance of several great restaraunts and the breakfasts were superb!

Most importantly however, the room was beautiful and quiet - exactly what I was looking for this week!

  • Liked — Very quiet location in the heart of a busy downtown.
