I have to say that I've traveled all over the world and this was the best B&B experience of my life. The breakfast spread alone was to drool for: egg quiche dishes (veggie and non-veggie), tropical fruits cut up in a decorative fashion, various muffins including my fav-bananut!, and you could eat it with fine silver and an extensive tea...

My wife and I come to San Francisco every few months, and always try to find somewhere unique to stay. Our search normally starts on AirBnB, but after no one replies back to messages about vacancies (what is it with that?), we turn to more traditional routes - and in this case I am certainly glad we did. The preservation...

The inn was beautiful. The inn keeper/owner was very welcoming and made us feel like old friends. The rooms were beautifully decorated. Very nice garden area out back with a hot tub. Wonderful view from the 3rd floor of all of San Fransico! Located within 15 minutes of SF airport. Very convienent for pre flight stay. Parking was easy. Located...

It's a survivor of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. This 1870's house still stands because the great fires stopped one block away. Walk through the mahogany front doors and enter the quiet, peaceful world of a wonderfully preserved Victorian home. The owner will share stories, while offering you a sip of sherry or port in the Parlor. There is always...

It was lovely to stay in such a beautiful and classic San Francisco building. We arrived early for our four night stay after a very early morning flight. We were able to check straight into our room and we were offered breakfast! Really positive first impression! We found all the staff really helpful with maps, transport information and a list...

You have to love old buildings if you want to stay here. Old buildings aren't perfect, they have an odor and they are creaky. But they are beautiful and a part of history that should be preserved and enjoyed. Pros- Light, healthy options breakfast with lots of fruit and you can fit it in your schedule.

From the moment we arrived at the Inn we were treated like family. We stayed in the garden cottage on a girls trip and it was so perfect for us.

I stayed her for two nights with my 6 year old daughter, Friendly from the off. We were in the second house, and found it fine. The building is an old building so will have certain defects!

I had not been to San Francisco for 20 years and was ecstatic about returning. We chose the inn because of its reasonable price and reviews. The room we stayed for the first three nights was lovely with a large clean jacuzzi surrounded by white tiles and plants that made it a wonderfully relaxing experience. The buffet style breakfast which...

Mission District location on a busy street, Good luck with parking. Easy walk to Castro. Our room was stuffy, however the windows open for an occasional breeze. Large featherbed, heavy linens, lot of hot water in the shower. Bath amenities were a disappointment. Nice buffet breakfast with baked goods, quiche, cold cuts and cheeses, plentiful fruit selection, hot or cold...

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.
