the home you've always dreamed of... 3/15/2011

Chateau Tivoli is more than a place to stay...it is an experience. The ambiance, charm and character of the place is matched (actually surpassed) by the folks who manage it and your stay here will be one to remember. The neighborhood has improved dramatically and we felt comfortable walking around at night and going to Alamo Square in the morning (just two blocks south) to read the paper and take in the views which are spectacular. While this is a very romantic place for couples, it also caters to many single guests as well so you won't feel like the lone ranger if you come here by yourself. You will just feel lucky. The bed was firm and comfortable while the towels and linens were industrial quality. Hey, they still worked fine and the bath water was hot in the morning. What more can you ask for...the place seems just like home. If you are fond of older architecture and decorating, this place is a treasure chest with art nouveau throughout the down stairs, consistent to the time the home was built. The wall papering and wordwork is a marvel just to observe and appreciate. If you want a real San Francisco experience this is the place.The location is right in the center of SF and a short walk or bus ride away from just about anyplace you care to go. We hit North Beach, SOMA, Union Square and Golden Gate Park with little effort. The breakfast and wine/cheese reception are top notch and easily worth $50, making your room more economical. It is very, very quiet inside with very little street noise noticed. Parking was better than imagined during the 3pm check-in and we only had to move the car once for the street sweeping. And the coffee is GREAT! We include a special thanks to Meredith and Nico for making our stay so wonderful and we plan to return soon. more

Disappointing experience!! 12/4/2007

My husband and I just returned from a trip to San Francisco for our birthdays. Despite the positive reviews that I read about this B&B, we found it to be quite impersonal. The building is beautiful but the service was non-existent. The breakfast was okay and not very interesting. I have stayed in other B&B where there seemed to be a sense of ownership by the staff but I did not sense it here. The location is very nice. The bathroom was nothing to speak of in our Aimee Crocker room and there was not much heat in that side of the building. For the price, there was nothing luxerious about this place and I would not think of going back there. CWB/ABQ,NM Pros: beautiful house Cons: needs more light, more heating in room, would like a little service, impersonal more

Beautiful Painted Lady, Elegant 4/9/2007

We recently spent our anniversary at this beautiful Victorian Painted Lady B&B. We have stayed here before a few years ago, and enjoyed it very much. We stayed in the Luisa Tetrazzina l Room ast time, but it was not available , so we opted for the Aimee Crocker room instead. We found this room to be a bit small. But beautiful in decor. Except for the Home Depot type faucet/shower and toilet area. I really expected them to match the era. I was dissapointed with the bathroom choices. This room was also located above the kitchen, so the dishes began clanking quite early. It was not as quiet on this end of the house, so we will be staying on the other side of the house (if we return). The breakfasts were outstanding and the innkeepers were very attentive. When you pay over $500 for 2 nights you expect these kind of details. Overall we really like this place and feel comfortable, just make sure you get the right room. The street seemed to have a lot of parking issues and sirens and police activity, I am not sure if the neighborhood has gone downhill. But we survived. And love this house and its beauty!! The house needs some paint on the outside, maybe that will draw more visitors. more

Most romantic Victorian Bed and Breakfast and great staff makes it hard to leave and go home 10/30/2006

If you want to stay in one of the most beautifully appointed B&Bs in S.F. then you must stay at the Chateau Tivoli! For a birthday treat my partner and I, whose birthdays are one day apart, treated ourselves to a night stay at this inn and were blown away by the setting and the staff. The antiques throughout this inn are spectacular, the attention to details in the restoration of this painted lady make it a photo op for visiting tourists, and the level of service provided by the staff is fabulous. Pros: Great location, setting and staff. Beautiful rooms and a full breakfast. Cons: Hard to leave and go back to the real work world after staying here. more

My favorite B&B! 11/12/2002

The other reviewer must have eaten some crab apples. I can think of nothing else to explain his ridiculous review. This place is my favorite B&B in all of San Francisco! It is extremely comfortable and the furnishings are superbly vintage. Don't miss out on this historic B&B! Pros: historic neighborhood, themed suites, lavish more
