Our stay at the Inn San Francisco was awesome. A beautiful Victorian home. The staff was very helpful. They felt just like friends. The breakfast every morning was very yummy. We had a variety of fruit, quiche, and pastries. Would highly recommend a stay here

The Inn San Francisco has comfortable beds, antiques-filled rooms (both public and private), and an excellent location for bus or BART and for dining on Valencia. Breakfast is plentiful, with quiche, all sorts of delicious baked goods, and an abundance of fresh fruit that is all too rare at most b & b's. Breakfast is buffet style and you can... More

My wife and I stayed just one night, however, it was a magical experience. The Inn transports you back to the 1800's with immaculate attention to every detail. Fine China, crystal decanters, silverware are just a few things that made our experience special. The back yard garden was so tranquil and serine. The hot tub is a must while sipping... More

The people here are so kind and helpful. Made you feel like family. Comfortable living room area. Great continental breakfast too. The only problem was the bed was not comfortable...they need to invest in comfort mattresses. Plus, ask for a room off the main street as the noise is very loud and sirens run all night.

Unhappy to hear you found our bed uncomfortable. Perhaps the feather bed was "tired" in your room. We will check it out. Wonderful to hear though that the staff were kind and wonderful. Marty More

Can only agree with what others have said, but I would add that the service was excellent, having met the owner Marty, who stayed a bit longer to help me both find the place (went to Van Ness rather than South Van Ness) and keep a parking place and showed me around. The room was vintage and comfortable and everything... More

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.
