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...

I stayed here for the 3rd time on Easter Weekend. Marty and Liza couldn't have been more helpful and kind. The entire staff was wonderful, they invited my friend to breakfast with us, upgraded my room, provided everything and anything a person could possibly ask for! I can not recommend this Inn highly enough - just don't go when I...

We had a great night and the staff were all super polite and made every effort for us. The hot tub was incredible, so was the complimentary Port and Sherry! Thank you!

I don’t know where to begin, there is so much to like about a stay here. Marty is just charming and so welcoming after a red-eye arrival in the city. The house is lovely, with such a San Francisco Victorian feel. The breakfast buffet is rightly acclaimed, so many delicious choices available. Everyone on the staff that we spoke to...

I have to say that I've traveled all over the world and this was the best B&B experience of my life. The breakfast spread alone was to drool for: egg quiche dishes (veggie and non-veggie), tropical fruits cut up in a decorative fashion, various muffins including my fav-bananut!, and you could eat it with fine silver and an extensive tea...

My wife and I come to San Francisco every few months, and always try to find somewhere unique to stay. Our search normally starts on AirBnB, but after no one replies back to messages about vacancies (what is it with that?), we turn to more traditional routes - and in this case I am certainly glad we did. The preservation...

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.
