Arbor House Suites Bed and Breakfast

109 Arciniega , San Antonio, TX 78205 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


ARBOR HOUSE INN and SUITES was opened in October 1995, but the history of the buildings which now comprise the unique 8 suite bed and breakfast, began in 1903, when a Swiss cabinet maker built these cottage homes for himself and his family. During recent renovations the houses were awarded the San Antonio Conservation Society Plaque, awarded for excellence in historic renovations. The 4 buildings are clustered around a lush garden with beautiful fountain, outdoor seating & umbrella tables, in downtown San Antonio. Arbor House is centrally located one block from historic La Villita, and the River Walk, and two blocks from the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center. Other attractions such as the Alamo are 3 blocks away. Guest Suites have been individually decorated with furnishings and art work collected from a myriad of sources - functional, interesting and fun. You will never stay in any hotel as unique, intimate or convenient. Each house has only three suites, featuring high ceilings, pine floors, private baths, and all the conveniences of central air and heat, state of the art phone system with data ports. All of the suites have refrigerators, microwaves and coffee pots. Some suites have private balconies. "We provide visitors a relaxed atmoshpere, a center-of-the-city location, and San Antonio charm at a reasonable price." A new tradition in downtown San Antonio. ARBOR HOUSE INN and SUITES was featured in the March '04 edition of Southern Living Magazine.

Amazing Stay

4.8 on July 05, 2018

We had a blast at this B&B. Adolf and his staff were very out going and friendly. We will definitely be going back in the future!

Arbor House

I found all the rooms very comfortable and tastefully decorated with period furniture. The only room that was unsatisfactory was the toilet, which was so small that I bumped my head on something every time I had to bend over to pick something up. Also, I had a couple of questions on the room (TV, A/C) for which the host never returned my call. That was very frustrating.

Great location, charming atmosphere

These aren't luxury suites, but nice Americana. Location is great, you can easily walk to Riverwalk, Alamo, and other sites & come & go as you please. The breakfast is basic continental style, just as advertised and perfect for a quick start to the day. Really friendly management, we enjoyed our stay, it was just what we wanted.

Great location

4.0 on April 03, 2018

I really enjoyed my stay! The staff were helpful and very friendly. I very much enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. The room was comfortable and clean. The only criticism is the lack of recycling (and perhaps lack of interest). Although, I enjoyed my stay, I would think twice about staying due to lack of recycling.

San Antonio B&B River walk Stay

3.6 on March 25, 2018

Our stay at the Arbor House in San Antonio was quite pleasant with only a few exceptions. It was advertised as having wifi, but ours didn't work. For us that was frustrating, but if you are not dependent upon the internet, it may not bother you. Also they had just changed TV cable service. Hopefully it has been fixed by now, but we could receive only a free stations in the evening and none of them carried the news. Except for that our stay was quite nice. The location is great, only two blocks from the riverwalk. The atmosphere was really good. The courtyard is great for having a glass of wine in the evening, accompanied by an extremely friendly cat. The room was very spacious and well appointed. In the morning between right and rightist a basket of breakfast food was delivered outside the door. Overall I would recommend a stay at the Arbor House.

This is the second time we have stayed here and we do not want to stay anywhere else. We requested to stay in the same room and will continue to do so every time we come to San Antonio. It's right off the Riverwalk and near all of the downtown activity. We park and just walk wherever we need to go. Plenty of restaurants nearby. The staff is very friendly and my family loves the picnic basket we get in the mornings with our breakfast. Great place!

A Lovely Place!

This was our first time to stay at a B&B, and I have to say it far passed my expectations. Clean, very comfortable and homey. The lovely, historic rooms filled with small details that delighted me. We stayed in the William Barrett Travis suite and pictures and details of him just made it all the more special. The only thing we felt cheated on was that it rained all week and the cheerful communal gardens lit up with colored lights and beautiful plants could not really be fully enjoyed. This is a place we will stay again when visiting San Antonio. M/M Jerry Moyer, Augusta, Georgia

4 night stay

Great location and very friendly staff. The only thing I would change a bit is breakfast. While it was wonderful to have a basket delivered each morning, it was the same each day. We didn’t have a toaster in the room so we didn’t get to eat the “lenders” type bagels in the basket. On the whole I would stay there again.

The Arbor House was an awesome place and great location for an in town staycation.

Excellent B&B

Our stay was excellent! The rooms were beautifully furnished and the bed was very comfortable. We were provided with a beautiful basket on our doorstep in the morning full of yummy breakfast foods and that was delightful. We were also greeted by both the manager and the owner and both were incredibly helpful and kind. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. It felt very personalized and it was a wonderful and relaxing experience! We'll definitely be back!
