Small place, big service

Posted Dec 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
The biggest plus for this small bed and breakfast was its accommodating and efficient staff. Although the hours are limited as to when staff is present, they made sure to address all needs. I would not hesitate to stay at the Monte Cristo again.

Convenient location in San Francisco

Posted Dec 6, 2014
We chose this for its location to all that SF has to offer. All was well except our first floor room was too warm (even with the heat off). Parking is street only with no luggage drop off area.

Lovely place with lovely people

Posted Nov 24, 2014
We just stayed for one night, the next morning we were in a rush, a very lovely lady packed our breakfast for to go. We mentioned we were heading over to the Stanford-Berkeley game, she packed us some extra trek mix for snacking!! We felt bad that we couldn't spend more time talking to her, she is so lovely so caring! Carl was the front desk taking care of our check-in and reservation, very friendly and helpful person! They have cute vintage furniture, the breakfast ambience was cozy, we could always smell good food even when we were in our room!! Will com back!

Good neighborhood.

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: Cozy feel. Wonderful staff.
Cons: The bathroom lights were on auto and bright, so we just covered switches with a magazine.
Location: There were several good restaurants within walking distance and a nostalgic theater two blocks away. Shop art, antiques, consignment clothes, etc.
It's a very safe neighborhood that is close for exploring the Presidio. We enjoyed viewing the beautiful upscale homes nearby. Hilly San Francisco at its finest. Lyon St. Steps was a good workout.

Happy with my stay.

Posted Nov 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was quaint (older) with up dated bathrooms. Location was good for my purposes. Breakfast was excellent. Management was not always available during the day. A little expensive but this is San Francisco (I have stayed at the superb Sofitel Hotel in LA for less).

A hidden gem off the beaten path.

Posted Oct 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay very much. The innkeeper was friendly, helpful & assisted us with our luggage. The inn was comfortable, clean & cozy. Our room was equally as good. The dining area had homemade cookies, fruit, coffee & tea in the afternoons & evenings. The breakfast was excellent. Quiche or omelet, yogurt, fruit salad, sweet bread, juice, coffee & teas were available. The living area had books, magazines, San Francisco newspaper & was comfortable & nicely furnished. It was convenient to a bus stop so we rode bus & transferred to a cable to to get around. We will stay here again.
