"Excellent Inn, Professional Service"
My room was very comfortable and had a good usable desk, helpful for those who have to work while away. The bay window was a nice touch as it allowed me to sit and enjoy looking out over the park watching the people enjoying the warmth of the day. The room was immaculate and in excellent condition. It looked like it had been recently redone.
The Innkeeper on duty, Shabir, was friendly and helpful and was available throughout the evening, hosting the wine and cheese hour and helping myself and the other guests with dinner recommendations, cabs, etc.
If you want a quiet, out of the way B&B, this is not it. It is right in the heart of North Beach, one of the most active neighborhoods in the city. However, this part of San Francisco is also one of the more enjoyable parts. The cafes are lively and the multitude of restaurants and bistros are excellent. Mostly Italian fare, but you can find other foods as well. Being on the square, which was quiet at night, the Inn was not noisy, but I can see how at times you would be able to hear street noise. One of the best parts of the location is you don't have to bring a car at all (as a matter of fact parking is difficult in the neighborhood). The city is literally at your feet.
