We stayed in "Lily" which was the downstairs room; WiFi and Netflix were available at no charge. The bath is quite European (toilet and small shower), but it may not...

Fabulous location in a wonderful and very interesting part of San Antonio. Easy to walk to the downtown area. The innkeeper and her help were friendly and very hospitable. An all around lovely experience. We will definitely return!!

A beautiful and comfortable house that was warm and inviting. We loved the food, loved the décor, were delighted with the hostess, and enjoyed the entire stay. Although San Antonio is an excellent place to visit, Eva's made our Christmas trip very special and relaxing.

This is just the greatest B&B in the area! I stayed here with two others in the Dessert Blossom Suite for two nights during the AACR conference at the Convention Center. Not only are the pictures totally an accurate depiction of the room, but it is so convenient of a walk to the convention center! And its cheaper that many...

We enjoyed having you as our guest. Thank you for providing your feedback to the TripAdvisor users. Our King William neighborhood is the perfect place for a girls getaway.

The King William District is in a perfect location. A ten minute walk to the commercial section of the Riverwalk, a fifteen minute walk to the Convention Center and the Alamo plus a hop, skip and jump to some of the best restaurants in San Antonio.
