Welcoming city bed and breakfast

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: We liked being away from the noise and bustle of downtown, but close to public transportation. It has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
Location: Residential section with bus stop right outside the door and one block away. Trader Joe's and a cafe close. Short ride to Fillmore St. and bookstore
The Monte Cristo Inn is a warm and welcoming bed and breakfast in a residential section of San Francisco. It is very clean and well kept. The beds are fresh and comfortable. The owners have tried to think of everything. The bathrooms are modern even though it is an historical building filled with antique furniture. Our room had a flat screen TV, Wifi is free and there is a computer and printer available for guest use, also free of charge. Breakfast is delightful with fresh fruit, pastries, yogurt and granola. Eggs are made to order. In the afternoon, there is coffee, tea and refreshments available for guests as well.

A beautiful B&B with an inspiring atmosphere, great attention to detail, just a fantastic ambiance all around. I really enjoyed my stay and the free street parking was an added bonus.

This cozy B and B offers old charm in an updated fashion. Although our room was too warm and the tv didn't get reception, we'd stay again. There is a sitting room that has a flat screen tv so we could watch there. Breakfast was great. Quiche and eggs with sourdough toast on request. Comfy bed.

Great B&B in the heart of San Francisco

Posted May 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and we enjoined it. The house is pretty old and has lots of character. They have one of those Japanese toilets which washes your butt. Pretty cool. The only downside was breakfast: most of the items offered were bought at Costco. While staying in a B&B, I rather having something fresh made.

great place to stay at SF

The Monte Cristo Inn is much better than I thought when I finally get there. Though the room is a little bit small, it's very clean and nice. The service is great, people there are kind and polite, and the maid is very friendly. You can get free buffet every morning and maid-cooking bacon & eggs if you want.

Great hotel/breakfast but no AC

Posted May 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel was great and had an excellent breakfast. My only complaint is that for AC you have to leave your window open to get cool air from outside. The service, however, is great. We had to leave early one morning and they made us to go breakfast bags since we would miss the morning breakfast. The hotel is near several bus lines and on street parking.

Friendly service

Nice place. It is a typical B&B. An older hotel with updated bathroom, TV, etc. Location was in a good, safe neighborhood. Parking was tough as there is no place to park at the hotel. The guys running the place were great, attentive and very helpful.

First B & B Experience

Posted May 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
I was reluctant to stay at one as I'm not one to mingle. It was very much like staying in a hotel. The whole place was beautifully done. The food was excellent. I would stay there again.

Unexpected Find!

Posted May 3, 2014
Pros: The wonderfully remodeled bathroom in an historical B&B was great. The staff make this special. Not all B&Bs offer a parlor as comfortable as this.
Cons: It would be nice to have a temporary parking sticker.
Our daughter made the reservations, so we came to the Monte Cristo Inn not knowing much about it. We were delighted. Our room was comfortable, newly remodeled in the historical period of the building. We loved sitting in the parlor in the afternoon enjoying a cup of coffee and a cookie, The breakfast offered quite an array of options, of which all were great. Jack and Terry made us feel very welcome. The only downside is since the Inn is in the center of San Francisco, parking was hard to find. We'll definitely stay here again!

Good value & location

Posted Apr 27, 2014
A very nice b&b in a restored boarding house, with beautiful wood floors and a homey feel. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are cozy and well-furnished, and the bathrooms were restored recently with nice modern fixtures.
