Red Victorian Inn
San Francisco Gem of a Hotel
For my daughter's high school graduation present, we gave her and her boyfriend an all-expense paid trip to San Francisco. Her words about the Red Victorian:
This hotel is a fantastic place to call home while visiting San Francisco. Located in the famous Haight-Ashbury district, and run by the inimitable Sami Sunchild, this cozy little place is clean, charming, and full of personality. Comfy beds and imaginative decor are just the icing on the cake. We love this place and will stay there again on our next visit to San Francisco.
Unique Quality: The Red Victorian is nothing if not unique. You'll find interesting people, really fun decor, and a positive energy that will blow you away. It's really close to Golden Gate Park which we had a great time exploring.
Directions: Haight - Ashbury
Something Different in San Francisco
I stayed here in June 2005 and thought it was really amazing. It's a quaint little B&B where each room is done up in a different style all kind of related to the 1960's/hippies generally. And I don't mean dodgy decor...I stayed in the Butterfly Room, pretty in blue, with giant butterflies hanging from the ceiling. I don't think any of the rooms have an ensuite bathroom but all the bathrooms were very clean and had no qualms about sharing them.
Breakfast which is a muffins and bagels type affair can be accompanied by a lively discussion from the owner Sami Sunchild. You can choose to get involved or not but it's certainly a different way to start your morning.
It's also in a great area - there are some excellent shops (clothes and food) up and down the street and a great Cuban/fusion restaurant, i have forgotten the name but litereally if you come out of the B&B and turn left and keep walking, it's about 3 blocks down, and painted in bright colours - amazing food.
Directions: Haight-Ashbury District
Great option in Haight
I've stayed here a couple of times and it's very handy, well run and pleasant - if a little jarring in its 60s sensibility after a long haul flight!
Unique Quality: Individual rooms have themes - Japanese Tea Garden, Summer of Love, etc. The world's problems are solved over the breakfast.
Directions: Right in the guts of Haight-Ashbury
A Blast from the Past
I haven't stayed here but I know this B & B by reputation, as well as the general neighborhood (Haight-Ashbury) and I can strongly recommend it to anyone who is visiting S.F. for the first time. It seems to be ideal for the free-minded and independent traveller, and is well-connected to the downtown area by public transportation, so you don't absolutely need a car here.
Bed & Breakfast
Located on Haight near Golden Gate park. It is a very nice, relaxing place to stay and meet new people. Each room has a theme, with a shared bathroom on each level.
Unique Quality: There is one warning though: you may get an "interesting" feature in your room depending on the theme.
Bed, breakfast, & art!
Each one has a different theme: sunshine room, flowerchild room, japanese tea garden room, etc.
And they are all decorated according to their name. Also the bathrooms have a different theme!
Unique Quality: Very hippy.
"A peaceful world hotel".
Check out their web site, it's got plenty of pictures and info.
