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.

We were only in town for one night and I was glad to find a nice B&B with an available room. While the outside is nothing special, the inside is quite charming and the high-tech bathrooms are special. The evening snacks were great -- especially the gluten free homemade cookies -- and the breakfast was very enjoyable.

My wife and I wanted to be ion a quiet areaway from the tourist trap of union and civic, could"t have picked better. There is a bus across the street and it's a 10- 20 minute ride to everything you want to see 40 minutes and up for some things but it beats trying to park your car. The food was very tasty and prepared when you ordered it and they have gluten free options which were great. The staff were very helpful. The room was small compared to modern hotels but very comfy with the decor and ambiance it was like staying at your grandparents house, creaky floor boards & stairs etc. the baths are modern and updated better than most hotels the windows have an extra window you can close that soundproofs the room. i would highly recommend the monte cristo to any one who doesn't mind being a little outside of the city center but does enjoy the personal touch. Nothing but CHARMING!

An affordable B&B in a quiet neighborhood. Very warm staff. Great service. The rooms are a little small and need better lighting. Otherwise the food, the service, the cleanliness and care were great. Easy to get around from here walking, bus or taxi. They made me feel very at home.

I've been staying at the Monte Cristo since the 90s when it was owned by different owners. The location in Upper Pacific Heights bordering on Presidio Heights is ideal, near fashionable Sacramento Street, the historic Presidio and a relatively short walk to the hip Marina district and picturesque Crissy Field. The current owners have added more polish and sizzle (i.e. creature comforts) to the Monte Cristo, which has made it an even lovelier and more enjoyable place to stay. I highly recommend the MC!

We were in San Francisco to show our grand daughter the sights. The B & B was well located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco, but well connected by public transportation to everywhere and located not far from Golden Gate Park and Japan Town. Great breakfasts: Bacon and gorgonzola cheese quiche, plenty of fruit, eggs and cereal. It suited our needs very well.

We stayed when we took our daughter to USF. The bed was so comfortable. Sadly we didn't have time for the breakfast but it looked and smelled wonderful. We did enjoy the homemade cookies in the afternoon. We look forward to staying there when we go back to visit our daughter.

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!
