A Yellow Rose Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 42 San Antonio B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 November 2012

Our stay at the Yellow Rose was fantastic. From our checkin with the proprietors until we checked out everything was great. It was located in a great historic area less than a 10 minute walk from the downtown and Riverwalk but nice and quiet at night. We were also right near the river walk trail and found our way down to bike ride. We fell in love with the outdoor bar down the street "The Friendly Spot" where we found great beer choices and could watch sports and movies on their projector all day. We also really enjoyed our breakfasts at Tito's and Mad Hatter's right down the block. It was also quite convenient for walking to the riverwalk and hemisfair park.

The room itself was fantastic. It really felt homey with the chaise chairs and arge four post bed. Everything was super clean and though we forgot to book the actual breakfast, we enjoyed the provided drinks and snacks. The neighborhood was also great as it was very quiet at night. The owners were very helpful and friendly, and always seemed to be around the property, but not in any way infringing on your privacy. I also really liked their 4 dogs, all of which they had rescued locally.

A Yellow Rose is a wonderful B&B in a lovely district where you can either spend a lovely night in with some wine and feel at home, or a convenient base for venturing out into the town.

Thank you again for making out trip so wonderful!

We loved our stay at A Yellow Rose, the location is walking distance to the riverwalk or a $5 cab ride. The Bordeaux Room was lovely, you get the BnB feel with a great sense of privacy not always found at a regular BnB. I would recommend thier "full" breakfast, it was delivered to our room and simply delicious! There was so much food we were full for day. Ample room for parking so you are off the street as well. During our stay, we only contacted Deb once for a request and she was quick to assist us. I highly recommed A Yellow Rose and we look forward to our next visit!

We found this B & B extremely charming and well appointed. The Bordeaux Room was absolutely charming. The neighborhood is breathtaking in terms of the homes and overall atmosphere. Mad Hatter's, one block away, was a great breakfast find even if the service can be a little bit quirky. The Yellow Rose itself is steeped in architectural history and while the stairs might be a little challenging if you have heavy luggage, the rooms and porch were just lovely. Sometimes B&B's are over the top for me in terms of being too cute. Not this one. Elegant and charming.

Room Tip: The Bordeaux Room was the one we stayed in and it really did look just like what was shown on the we...

When we pulled up, we noticed that there were a LOT of BnB's on the street...we counted four in one block alone! As we pulled in to the gate and parked, Deb (the proprietor) was right outside to greet us. The room we stayed in was fantastic; very homey and yet nice touches (coffee press, fridge, satellite TV) that made it feel like we didn't have to rough it at all.

We took in the Broadway Bistro for dinner, which is a short five-minute drive through downtown and down Broadway; music was great and food was excellent. It rained out our Saturday evening plans even though Deb's husband lent us an umbrella (note: the Overtime Theater has MOVED, and we don't know WHERE!?), but we went back to the room early and had a much better time there I think ;)

The morning saw a short walk to Madhatter's Tea for breakfast; a two-block walk and a scrumptious brunch worth going back for. Walked around the neighborhood a while and then went back to relax for the rest of the morning. Easy check out (basically "see ya!") and off we went. The price was very competitive to the BnB's in the neighborhood, and the stay was fantastic. A great staycation that I'm sure we'll do again. Thanks to Yellow Rose for making things superb!

We had a fantastic time

Room Tip: There are rooms on the first and second stories - we had a first. Request a ground-level room if yo...

This was the first time we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. The Carriage House gave us total privacy. Every afternoon we returned from an excursion to find fresh cookies waiting for us. Deb was very helpful in suggesting restaurants in the area (and there were excellent restaurants within walking distance). There was off street parking which was wonderful. We could walk to the River Walk, to historical sites in the downtown area, and the Institute of Texan Cultures. It was a great location and a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: The Carriage House is very private with bathroom, kitchen/living room area.

My husband & I were thrilled to stay at A Yellow Rose. It was everything & more than we expected. The room was immaculate, adorably decorated w/unique, one- of- a- kind items & pictures, & our privacy was respected.The price was the best value for our money, esp compared to other properties in the Riverwalk area.We would recommend this establishment to anyone considering staying at a B&B in SA; the King Williams District is a plus for this property.Would definitely stay here again.
