I booked at the Artists Inn because a friend was staying nearby. It was really a terrific place. There is one room in the main house (The Garden Room), the rest are behind a charming courtyard. Our room (Virginia's) was a very comfortable large room. My folks booked Robert's Room but were upgraded to the studio. They had a kitchen area and tons of light. Both rooms open onto the courtyard and were very quiet.
The owner, Denise, was very flexible in booking and accommodated a last minute change without any problem. We didn't get to meet her because she was travelling, but we had no problems self-catering our stay.
The Inn is very close to Fillmore Street, which has myriad restaurants to choose from. It's also close to Japan Town.
