Old World Charm BnB in Lower Pacific Heights
Posted Oct 26, 2016 on Hotels
This place is outside of the immediate downtown of SF, but only a short uber, lyft or muni ride from the action. Instead, it's located in a gloriously beautiful neighborhood, full of charm and fun to walk.
We parked our car across the street and up the hill a block away and avoided paying $30 a day at a nearby garage. Watch the posted street signs carefully for parking rules!
The hotel is a converted saloon and bordello from an age gone by. Modernized just enough to offer creature comforts (bathroom completely redone, great shower and with mechanized toilet!) while retaining its original character.
The real pleasure is the staff, however. We stayed two nights and came to know Jack and Nick a little, who were friendly, helpful and fun. Even our room cleaning gal was sweet and personable.
Nick's full breakfasts were made to order and very special. His attention to detail made all of the difference.
No elevator in this establishment and our room was on the second floor. Meant carrying luggage up the old staircase, but Jack was right there to help.
No air conditioning in the room, but a window opened, with top down, bottom up shades and an interior atrium view. Another window in the bathroom allowed for sufficient air circulation. This was the sole concern of merit that I have with staying here during warmer weather. But, it IS San Francisco, after all!
I'd definitely return.
