This place is just wonderful. What a great sanctuary smack in the middle of the city. It is particularly great with larger groups, or when visiting people in the city because the front parlor is spacious and comfortable and a great place to spend time chatting, snacking, or having a drink. With apartments so small in SF, this is a... More

We'd read the reviews leading up to our visit and read how great it was and wondered if it really could be as nice. It is!!! We stayed in room 34 for 3 nights at the end of September and we loved it. The staff are great and go out of their way to make your stay great. It's lovely... More

We are thrilled you enjoyed our Inn's features! I trust our staff were interested in you and friendly, as well. While it is unfortunate that we have to charge for parking, we find we are very lucky to be able to rent our neighbors' garages (for about $1,300 per month) and thereby provide convenient spaces for our guests. Note that... More

We stayed in the Inn for 2 days. This house is amazing. Its luxurious and homely all in one. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room No: 22 was beautiful. Comfortable and very well equipped. Breakfast was probably the best I have ever had in any hotel. We enjoyed ours in the beautiful garden. I cannot recommend the... More

The Inn is one of the finest places I have stayed. The building inside and out is absolutely beautiful, with turn of the century treasures that take you back in time.

We have just spent 5 nights at this great B&B. I can only echo what other favourable reviewers have said ... Great atmosphere, friendly helpful staff, delicious breakfast, comfortable spotless rooms, decent wifi. It was a real home from home so that we referred to it throughout our stay as "Marty's"!

I really wish that I could rate this B&B higher and if all that matter was the staff I sure would. But unfortunately there are other aspects that matter just as much and the house in itself didn't live up to my expectations.

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
