Overall enjoyed our stay although somewhat disappointed in level of service given price. Suggestions:1. have a one page guide summarizing parking options and recommended best practices. It was a constant hassel trying to find a location. On our arrival we were referred to a parking garage "near the university campus" which we never found, even in daylight. […] 2. Breakfast options were quite limited - consider expanding.Having said that we did enjoy our stay and found the location quite convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Count on the Monte Cristo"
Comfort, that's the word. What a nice comfortable place. Safe, well-located for my visit to Haight-Ashbury, too. The room was cleaner than necessary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice bed and breakfast"
We enjoyed this B&B. The room was very clean and comfortable, bathroom was fantastic! Stairs may be a challenge for older guests. Only complaint was the lack of restaurants in close walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous mother/daughter get away!"
I recently spent a long weekend with my 13 year old daughter at the Monte Cristo Inn. We had a great time exploring some San Francisco sites, including Fisherman's Warf (especially the last day when we finally saw some sea lions!), the Golden Gate Bridge, finding the "Full House" house and "The Princess Diaries" school, the Cliff House/bath ruins, the […] Palace of Fine Arts, and of course Cable Car riding! Our favorite dinner was the first night at Scoma's and our favorite dessert was hot fudge sundaes at Ghirardelli Square. However, we both agreed that staying at the Monte Cristo was the best part of our trip. Our room and the entire Inn were spotless. We loved the décor - combining mostly antiques with some new modern touches. We ate delicious breakfasts - loved ALL the fruit and especially the sourdough toast and French toast on the last day! We really enjoyed our daily chats with the hostess Terry about what we had done the day before and what we had planned for the day. And at the end of each exhausting day climbing the hills of San Fran we looked forward to returning to the Monte Cristo for the snack of delicious homemade cookies and fresh fruits and collapsing in our luxurious beds! We will definitely be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too far from the Medical Centerq"
This was our first time at a B and B and thanks to Teri we were very happy! She is so friendly and makes you feel at home plus she's an excellent cook and if she can, she'll make you whatever you'd like for breakfast. The only draw back was the parking, or lack of.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from home"
I was looking for a place to stay close to my family in Laurel Heights. What a fantastic property. Easy to park, warm lovely staff, beautiful historic 1800's brothel turned into a B&B. VERY CLEAN, full of charm, and breakfast was lovely, with even made to order eggs if you ask nicely. I will look for reasons to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A beautiful B&B with an inspiring atmosphere, great attention to detail, just a fantastic ambiance all around. I really enjoyed my stay and the free street parking was an added bonus.Genuine Expedia guest review
This cozy B and B offers old charm in an updated fashion. Although our room was too warm and the tv didn't get reception, we'd stay again. There is a sitting room that has a flat screen tv so we could watch there. Breakfast was great. Quiche and eggs with sourdough toast on request. Comfy bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
GREAT PLACE TO STAYGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable, small. quiet inn with welcoming staff. Luxurious cotton sheets. You'll be tickled by the bathroom surprise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great B&B in the heart of San Francisco"
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and we enjoined it. The house is pretty old and has lots of character. They have one of those Japanese toilets which washes your butt. Pretty cool. The only downside was breakfast: most of the items offered were bought at Costco. While staying in a B&B, I rather having something fresh made.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great place to stay at SF"
The Monte Cristo Inn is much better than I thought when I finally get there. Though the room is a little bit small, it's very clean and nice. The service is great, people there are kind and polite, and the maid is very friendly. You can get free buffet every morning and maid-cooking bacon & eggs if you want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel/breakfast but no AC"
The hotel was great and had an excellent breakfast. My only complaint is that for AC you have to leave your window open to get cool air from outside. The service, however, is great. We had to leave early one morning and they made us to go breakfast bags since we would miss the morning breakfast. The hotel is near several bus lines and on street par […] king.

Nice place. It is a typical B&B. An older hotel with updated bathroom, TV, etc. Location was in a good, safe neighborhood. Parking was tough as there is no place to park at the hotel. The guys running the place were great, attentive and very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First B & B Experience"
I was reluctant to stay at one as I'm not one to mingle. It was very much like staying in a hotel. The whole place was beautifully done. The food was excellent. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our daughter made the reservations, so we came to the Monte Cristo Inn not knowing much about it. We were delighted. Our room was comfortable, newly remodeled in the historical period of the building. We loved sitting in the parlor in the afternoon enjoying a cup of coffee and a cookie, The breakfast offered quite an array of options, of which all were […] great. Jack and Terry made us feel very welcome. The only downside is since the Inn is in the center of San Francisco, parking was hard to find. We'll definitely stay here again!

"Good value & location"
A very nice b&b in a restored boarding house, with beautiful wood floors and a homey feel. The breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are cozy and well-furnished, and the bathrooms were restored recently with nice modern fixtures.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have told all of my friends about this place, that is they go to San Francisco, they must stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to university and San Francisco sights"
Hotel is listed as a bed and breakfast. It is very comfortable and informal. Parking is tough, but that is true of all of San Francisco. Old fashioned but well renovated. Breakfast was nice but more limited than I expected for a b&b - it had a continental breakfast bar and offered toast and eggs or a quiche (Costco). Muffins were store bought (other […] b&b's I know offer a full breakfast with homemade specialties). Liked that they have coffee and fruit/snacks available 24 hours.

"Leaves me wanting more, but somewhere else"
We chose the Monte Cristo because of its proximity to family, and for that it was a good fit. The B&B is initially pleasing but after a few nights it is repetitive. The breakfast is tastefully presented and has lots of healthy options but seems to be opened from packaged products and put in trendy bowls. You can order eggs and such from the kitchen […] but that seems to be the extent of the on-site preparation. The coffee is from a pump pot but is piping hot and very tasty. The woman in charge on site is incredibly kind and accommodating. She was the bright star of the stay. The house is noisy, especially if you get the room under the stairs. The rooms have nice antique-looking furniture but less furniture would be better as it would give more room in the room. The bathroom has a bidet-like toilet seat add-on to wash your bottom. Novel, at least for us, and another feature we don't really need. The biggest disappointment was the Internet service. Wireless access is free, but you get what you pay for. The signal was weak and download speeds so slow as to be almost useless. Had to unplug the phone as it began emitting strange beeps and such. We think it was channeled through the cable for the TV and was affected by that. All-in-all we would probably try another B&B next time, at least to have a comparison.

"Great neighborhood, great rooms"
Nice old building with modern facilities. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was tasty. Bathrooms were fully up to date (great shower head, super modern toilet). Fast WiFi with no device restrictions. I loved walking around the neighborhoods in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Home away from home"
Our suite was a perfect combination of 19th century antique bedroom decor with state-of-the-art bathroom fixtures. The included breakfasts offered a wide range of tasty food, including fresh melon, berries and pineapple and custom-cooked eggs. Jack, Terry and Carl couldn't have been nicer. Will return often.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Easy stay for business travel."
Love the little treats at the end of a long work day. Close to many restaurants in walking distance. Always sleep well, very quiet, always surprised to see other guests at breakfast since I never hear them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great except for the parking"
We enjoyed our stay at the Monte Cristo, but the parking situation is very unfortunate. With the exception of a very few unlimited spots right in front of the hotel that are always taken, everyplace else requires you to move your car every 2 hours during the day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel in nice neighborhood"
Very helpful staff. Great breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our time at this BB was very pleasent. It is relatively close to very nice Asian restaurants. The room we stayed at was very nice the only thing we would recommend is that they use some silicone spray in the hinges of the bathroom door as it is very noisey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cute Vintage B&B"
Stayed one night for my graduation - would have enjoyed a longer visit. Cute, vintage rooms, nice breakfast and friendly, helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to UCSF Laurel Heights"
The Monte Cristo Inn is a delightful B&B where the rooms have been completely gutted and remodelled. We were told they are completing a few rooms upstairs, but we did not hear any construction on the Friday night we stayed. The rooms are fairly small, but two double beds fit easier in our room. The bathroom was small, but had a Toto Washlet on the toilet […] which acts as a bidet, a very nice touch - we have the same unit at home. Food in the common sitting room, dining room was always available, from coffee and tea to some nice pastries in the evening to a full breakfast, including a delicious quiche and eggs cooked to order. We were at a meeting at UCSF Laurel Heights which is a block away. Several very good restaurants are within a couple of blocks. We found parking on the street - metered until 6PM or after 9AM, but free overnight. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"NOT GREAT FOR BUSINESS TRAVELER"
This is not a hotel but a bed and breakfast that has owners that don´t like business travelers. Öh you must be here for a convention, eh? They don´t provide internet information until you ask, figure you want to talk to them to get internet access. <<<<key system is perhaps ok for bnb but awkward to enter front door with luggage and awkward to memorize […] key code. Why not use hotel type keys? On plus side, they did get a taxi when asked. If you are in town for business, I would stay elsewhere and not be confused by the 3rd star.
