Monte Cristo Inn, the private & romantic bed and breakfast hotel located in the exclusive and popular Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, offers its guests comfort and privacy. Rooms are highlighted by authentic antiques, persian rugs, hardwood floors, flat screen cable tv, complimentary breakfast, complimentary wifi throughout the property. A computer/email kiosk is available for business travelrs. Various room sizes and finishes are available to suit your budget. And if the walls of the Monte Cristo could talk, what stories they could tell, for this remarkable building has been a part of San Francisco since 1875. Originally built as a bordello and saloon. In the 1920s, it served as a speakeasy. When the great fire swept the city after the 1906 earthquake, homes were put to the torch on Van Ness Avenue to create a firebreak, and the Saloon not only survived, it served as a refuge for the newly post-quake homeless. The Inn is perhaps the oldest original hospitality structure in San Francisco, this European-style Inn is convenient to the entire city and is at the junction of three great neighborhoods, Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, and Laurel Heights. It is in one of the oldest and best neighborhoods in San Francisco. It is two blocks to the elegantly restored Victorian shops, Vogue theatre, Zagat-rated restaurants and antique stores on Sacramento Street. It's within walking distance to shopping on Union Street and Fillmore Street.

Unfortunately I was only there, well, like 8 hours! But it was a charming room, charming place! I had the tiny room. Closet toilet, shower stall, and sink were convenient and all I needed. I could see maybe a large person having trouble with the closet toilet. Even though it was on the first floor, street side, no noise bothered me at all. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was great! Had a nice chat with the nice lady cooking. I would definitely stay again.

I was in san fran for a six day yoga teacher training. I only needed a room for one night as I stayed with my uncle the other 5 days. My night in the Monte Cristo was very peaceful and much needed. After a week of yoga and sleeping in a fold out bed I was ready for a goog nights sleep in a comfotable room. the breakfast and conversation were very welcome.

Jack and Terri were very helpful. I felt safe and welcomed as a lone traveler on my first trip to S.F. to help my son pack up for a move to the east coast. The B&B location and hospitality were the best!

I booked one of the smallest rooms to stay in while my husband was at Mt Zion hospital. It was comforting to have a place to stay and a really good breakfast each morning before walking the hospital to visit all day. Jack took good care of me especially when I needed the room a second night. The bed was comfortable with ample pillows for sitting up to read. Free wifi had a good signal so I could stay in touch with family. Convenient wall outlets everywhere for charging batteries and laptop. Towels are soft and clean. The dining area was stocked with tea and coffee and always had some snacks available. A bowl of cherries or dried fruit and nuts, bananas and cookies. This place is GF friendly. I enjoyed some GF cookies one evening and asked for GF toast with my eggs in the morning. The woman who runs the dining room cooks perfect scrambled eggs that are not dry and sprinkled with a bit of spices. The fruit offerings for breakfast were fresh and perfectly ripe. It was the perfect oasis to stay during a stressful time. If I was staying there as a tourist, I would be just as impressed with everything.

My room (5) was wonderfully quiet and appears to have been updated very recently. The bathroom gleams with Marble and high end finishes. Ample lighting offsets the summer SF gloom and augments the natural light of two windows. There's lots of modern technology here from a cleansing toilet to HD tv. The public rooms are inviting and well stocked with goodies for all day snacking.

A charming and historic B&B in a quiet part of San Francisco. Well kept rooms with a classic traditional decor and modern amenities. Delicious breakfast and afternoon treats and very personable and friendly service. Convenient access to public transportation for touring the city.

We enjoyed our stay Monte Cristo B&B in back in October and decided to stay there again. The neighborhood is wonderful with a locals vibe and within walking distance to Spruce restaurant - one for SF's best dining. Breakfast was generous with hot options and service friendly and helpful. This time, we stayed in room 17 and would not have chosen this room except the B&B was at capacity. This room was smaller than our previous room with no view and the worst of all it was above the kitchen and early in the morning (~6a.m.) we could hear the water pipes and noise below. We plan to stay here again, but will be more choosy with what room we stay in. We recommend this place for anyone not interested in staying with loads of tourists in Union Square.

Over the past 20 years the Monte Cristo has remained the best bed and breakfast in the City! We love love everything about it from our host's exceptional service to the amazing breakfasts...this is the best!

I stayed here for 5 nights to attend a conference. Having lived in San Francisco in the past, I remember how noisy the downtown traffic could be, so I decided to stay a little further outside the downtown core. The B & B was wonderfully quiet and although I stayed in the tiny Broderick room, it met my needs very nicely! The cookies in the dining room that were always there as I returned late in the day were so delicious, as was the on-going availability of coffee and tea. Although I walked everywhere, there is also a bus route right out front which makes it very convenient for traveling around.
