The Monte Cristo has been a part of San Francisco since 1875. It was originally built as a brothel (saloon and hotel). Its colorful history includes serving as a bordello, a refuge after the 1906 earthquake and a speakeasy. The Monte Cristo is a comfortable and relaxed B&B located at the junction of three great neighborhoods, Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, and Laurel Heights.
The Monte Cristo is conveniently located near the elegantly restored Victorian shops, Zagat-rated restaurants and antique stores on Sacramento Street, Laurel Heights. It's within walking distance to shopping on Union Street and Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights.
