We just returned from 2 nights at the Monte Cristo and were very happy to have stayed there. The hosts were superb and helped with transportation tips, and they were excellent with gluten-free diet restrictions. They offered gluten-free made-to-order eggs, as well as gluten-free breads and granola. They even had gluten-free cookies available in the afternoon and evening. We liked the location, great bus service, and parking available across the street. The amenities in the bathroom were a pleasant surprise for a property built in the 1800's! We asked for a fan since the weather was warm, and Jack had graciously placed two in our room when we returned. The breakfasts and coffee were excellent, and next to the breakfast room they have a nice sitting room to enjoy coffee, tea, newspapers, and a TV to catch up on the news if you'd like.
- 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
