Positive Reviews

Unique and comfortable rooms

When it comes to comfort and cleanliness, the rooms at the Monte Cristo excel - in the opinion of many former guests. As well as being spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, the antique décor that supplements the room ambience was also received favorably.

Breakfast is wonderful

According to the overall opinion of previous visitors, the varied morning breakfast provided by the hotel is at a very high standard. Furthermore, the additional nibbles served throughout the day have also been judged as a welcome - and tasty - bonus.

Customer service is exemplary

The staff working at the Monte Cristo has generated rave reviews from virtually all past guests. Warm and welcoming, the customer service is also supposedly very accommodating in helping out when possible.

Negative Reviews

No dedicated parking available

One negative point about the Monte Cristo is that the accommodation does not have its own on-site parking lot. With that said, there is supposedly an abundant amount of street parking that surrounds the and few previous visitors had a problem acquiring a spot.

Air conditioning missing from rooms

Although it has not proved to be a noticeable problem for most, a number of past guests have had a grievance about the oversight of air conditioning in the rooms at the accommodation. As a result, controlling the temperature in the summer months can apparently be troublesome.

Simple but memorable

Despite the fact that the Monte Cristo is limited in terms of public facilities provided, the large majority of former visitors did not seem to mind. In fact, the general consensus is that the accommodation is a great - if simple - base for San Francisco.
