My husband and I treated ourselves to a weekend in San Francisco. This B&B was recommended by a friend who lives in the city. Top rate place. Could have been 4 stars. We stayed in room 18 on second floor. King size bed. Window was a light well - very, very quiet plus private but we still had light from outside. Recently remodeled. Nice dinner at a neighborhood Italian place called Osteria. You must also try B Patisserie - a French bakery that has the most authentic French pastries in the city. Good coffee and even sandwiches if you want to lunch close by. About 5 blks and an easy walk. We did not have a car and used taxis, our feet and the muni buses to get around. Safe neighborhood.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If the walls of the Monte Cristo could talk, what stories they could tell, for this remarkable building has been a part of San Francisco since 1875. When the great fire swept the city after the 1906 earthquake, homes were put to the torch on Van Ness Avenue to create a firebreak, and the 'Saloon' not only survived, it served as a refuge for the newly post-quake homeless. This European-style B&B is convenient to the entire city and is at the junction of three great neighborhoods, Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, and Laurel Heights. It is in one of the cleanest neighborhoods in San Francisco with abundant street parking. It is only two blocks to the elegantly restored Victorian shops, Zagat-rated restaurants and antique stores on Sacramento Street. It's within walking distance to shopping on Union Street and Fillmore Street. ... more less
