Expensive price per night, can be expected in San Francisco. Good breakfast, fruits and alcohol available in the lounge. No elevators. Gratuity envelope in our room was a turn off. Nice Victorian stylish property.

I and my family had a long trip to Vegas and California and this hotel was by far the hotel thar we most liked. Altough it is a B&B, I can easily consider it a luxury property. It is much more luxury than most properties that classify itself as such. Very interesting if you want to be in a very...

A charming Victorian building, lovingly decorated and home to a beautiful garden and jacuzzi. I stayed in a small room with a shared bathroom for four nights and although my room was small, it was comfortable, clean and had lots of thoughtful touches like a robe and candy bowl. Never had any problem using the bathroom, although locking and unlocking...

Beautiful decor with 24hour tea, coffee, and fruit accessible. Breakfast was great assortment of fruits, breads, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, homemade quiche (veggie and meat). I really enjoyed the breakfast but I can see that if you stayed more than 2 nights that it could get tiresome. It's located 4 blocks (10 min walk) to the 16th/Mission BART stop and only...

We wanted a place in The Mission District and so choices were limited. Nice victorian B&B with great b-fast spread. The evening host/owner is a bit garrulous, and more than a little eccentric, but charming. Our bathroom was overtaken by tiny ants. My first complaint led to no remedy, and after my second I was given a bottle of Windex...

What a fantastic find the Inn San Francisco was on our US stopover!! Gorgeous home, spotlessly clean room with outstanding attention to detail. We loved the warmth and hospitality of the owners and wee Guppy the dog! The hot tub was fantastic after a long haul flight and the complimentary sherry / port and chats in the evening with other...

We just returned home from a visit to San Francisco and a delightful stay at the Inn San Francisco. It was such a great experience that we tipped the staff 4 times more than we normally do. The service was just over the top excellent. Our room (#11 on the ground floor) was perfect and our first experience sleeping in...

Marty and his staff at Inn San Francisco could not have done more in making our stay truly comfortable and fun. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast is great, the rooms homely and comfortable. This is a wonderful place to stay while in San Francisco.

I honestly cannot say enough nice things about this place. Their website does not do them justice! If you are looking for your standard tourist experience you can stay anywhere, but for something extra, you can't go wrong here. It's located in the Mission which is a really fun neighborhood to explore and see a different side of San Fran...

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.
