    A wonderful place that has interesting books , magazines, and newspapers to peruse. We had medical appointments and needed to hole up in our room and this charming house made us feel nurtured.

    We had made plans to visit San Francisco for quick weekend before the great pandemic and decided go anyway. The city was shutting down at the time and I must say staying at Monte Cristo was a brilliant decision. The location was not in the tourist section but it was easy to get around town from there. Monte Cristo was a very beautiful historic hotel, antique furnishing, well kelp building and up to date plumbing and lighting. Our room even had a bidet which was pleasant to use. Breakfast was served to order every morning with a wide selection of fruits and coffee and cookies serve in the evening. Like I said, a very difficult time to visit and not many people were there, if any, and the staff treated us like a king and queen. If I ever visit San Francisco again, I would not hesitate booking Monte Cristo.

    Don't think twice, stay here.

    Cleanliness is a top priority for me and my room at the Monte Cristo was impeccable. The staff were all incredibly warm, friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was delicious and all of the little touches were appreciated. Check in and check out were swift and easy.

    Very helpful personnel - good breakfast - newspapers available - I would suggest a bar to grab in the shower if necessary to avoid falling (often Helpful for older people).
