    Historical Traveler Reviews A Yellow Rose Bed and Breakfast San Antonio

    Charm & personal touch

    from

    Just a quick not of appreciation & gratitude. Having never been a guest at a B&B, I was somewhat aprehensive about this adventure. Was I wrong! Thank you for a wonderful, warm, and confortable stay! Breakfast was out of this world!! Thanks again for your hospitality, charm, and personal touch! Looking forward to returning very soon!

    Continued successes! Bob & Desy

    Lovely B&B

    from

    If you are looking for a romantic getaway in the historic King Williams district of San Antonio, A Yellow Rose is just what you'll love. Very affordable, lovely and fully equipped rooms with special touches, including fresh flowers, refreshments and helpful visitor information. Location is great if you want to be near the famous river walk. Very friendly and helpful hosts!

    If you're coming to San Antonio, you can't do better than a Yellow Rose.

    from

    Nestled in the art district of San Antonio's charming King William neighborhood, A Yellow Rose Bed & Breakfast is a tasteful, thoughtfully furnished and impeccably clean and comfortable inn. Anyone who travels regularly can tell you that staying in a hotel, even the most expensive one, can be a sterile and impersonal experience. Not A Yellow Rose. Here you feel all the warmth and charm of a beautiful vintage San Antonio house with lush greenery, every ammenity and complete privacy. Inn keepers Deb and Kit make sure your towels and sheets are A+ quality, there were chocolates by my bed every day and Deb's eye for detail allowed me to look forward to "coming home" to my own quiet haven every night after the intensive writer's workshop activities I participated in. I love the place so much I am a repeat customer, and plan to come back next summer and stay in the same room again. So if you're coming to San Antonio, you can't do better than a Yellow Rose: reasonably priced, centrally located to everything, and a stone's throw from a great walking path by the river. I should also mention that you'll be walking distance from a number of great eateries, a good coffee house and numerous art activities, especially if you are here the first Friday of the month. Thanks Deb and Kit. I only wish I could take the bed home with me!

    Great Honeymoon Stay!!

    from

    We drove to San Antonio pretty much right after our wedding. We didn't get there until right around midnight, but once we finally found the place we were very pleased with how cozy it looked. The inn keepers left a note for us and the key to our room, and once we stepped inside our room we could not believe how wonderful the room was. We had sweets and champagne waiting for us as soon as we got there, and our room had a king sized jacuzzi tub that was to die for!! Every ammenity you could possibly think of was available to us. We did not want for anything while we were there. The bed was extremely comfortable. We slept very well. We were very pleased with the hospitality of the inn keepers and staff. We even had breakfast served to our room. The apple pancakes we were served our first morning there were delicious!! We had a very wonderful and very romantic stay!! I would recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone visiting San Antonio.

    Slept like a baby at A Yellow Rose

    from

    A Yellow Rose B&B, San Antonio TXI spent a February weekend in perfect delight at A Yellow Rose, a B&B in San Antonio, Texas. Bed: an old four-poster with a firm mattress, and I slept like a baby. Breakfast, served on an elegantly laid table in a corner of my room: baked scrambled eggs, sweet muffins, sliced kiwi fruit, apple turnover, and coffee, deeply satisfying. A Yellow Rose is a few blocks south of downtown San Antonio and a quick cab ride from the airport, in the King William district--a neighborhood of palm trees, magnolias, and homes of the historically well-to-do that borders San Antonio's famous River Walk. The proprietors of A Yellow Rose live and prepare meals in the old yellow brick house itself, and guest rooms are in a new frame wing and carriage house at the rear. My room, the Bordeaux, was huge and elegant, and it had everything a person could want--a chaise, a desk, coffee and tea ready to be brewed, chocolates, a ceiling fan, an ample and well appointed bath, the four-poster, and privacy. TV and cell phone, too, of course.

    A Haven!

    from

    Our room at A Yellow Rose was truly a haven after a day of enjoying the pleasures of San Antonio: a short trolley ride from the crowds in Alamo Square to our spacious and serene room. The delight of breakfast on the porch, the proximity of good neighborhood restaurants, the charm of the pedestrian-friendly King William neighborhood, and the peace and quiet of 229 Madison Street all contributed to our enjoyment. On any subsequent visit, we would not consider accommodations other than A Yellow Rose.

    Ah, every B&B should be this sweet!

    from

    Where do you stay when you have four couples and a family of four traveling together in San Antonio? A YELLOW ROSE B&B!Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. Our family visited San Antonio for my Mom's 80th birthday. I was lucky to find such a friendly, cozy place that could accommodate all of us, especially the kids, with all the comforts of home. Each room was unique and very comfortable. Everything was just perfect, and the special touches (refrigerator, goodies, coffee pot, coffees/teas, juices, soda, area info booklets, maps, beautiful furnishings, separate porches) - you can't get that kind of comfort at a hotel. It was great! We'll definitely be back again. It exceeded my family's expectations and everyone had such a great time.The Takahashi Family

    A Delightful Weekend

    from

    Staying at A Yellow Rose was a delight. Attending an event at the convention center, we chose to stay in the historic area, King William.

    Having stayed at B & B's before, we looked up on the internet to see what was available. Going by the pictures, I called and talked to Deb.

    She was as sweet and nice on the phone as she was in person. We chose the Magnolia Room. When we arrived, we were greeted by Deb. The room was just like the picture and more, there were fresh brownies on the table and milk in the 'fridg waiting on us. After our snack, we took a nap before our night on the town--the room was cool and quite. As an amateur photographer, I enjoyed an early walk in the neighborhood, with my camera while Dale slept in. I found people walking their dogs, having coffee on porches and lots of architectural things to take pictures of. Both mornings the breakfast had a variety of homemade specialtiies. When we get back to San Antonio, we will definitely stay at A Yellow Rose.(September, 2003)

    A good B&B

    from

    My husband and I stayed at A Yellow Rose for the first few days of our honeymoon (April 2003). Our room, the Bordeaux room, was spacious and entreating. We also very much enjoyed our breakfasts in bed (great cooking!), as well as the pastries and refreshments left for our arrival and replenished the next day (so many we couldn't eat). We thought the property overall was lovely and beautifully maintained- we would certainly come back for an anniversary!

    Not what it seems.

    from

    We drove in at night and it looked haunted. The house does not look like the picture. The weeds are over grown. It looked run down. We drove into the back and they have small carports. We have a big suv. We were afraid of the area. We werent sure if we were in a bad area. It looked really run down. The only good thing were the inside of the rooms. They were clean and in good condition. I am not sure if we got the new ones. We had 2 couples and 2 rooms. They said they supply bubble bath and oils for the bath (received nothing). They said jacuzzi tub it was old with no pressure. They said soda and juices only 4 juices. Basket full of teas (only 2 different tea bags) Surprise in the freezer never, No surprise. They said you get breakfast basket stocked with just baked sweet breads, fuit, yummy jams and honey , yougurt and lot of other items...Nope just paper plate with 4 small browies that tasted old. I was suppose to get the Carriage House Suite got the Bordeaux Room (which was nice. They said 2 blocks from the river walk it was farther than that. We walked the first night thru the ghetto. We took a taxi back. Overall I would NOT go back to the bed & breakfast.......... Thank God for websites like these...

    ... up hill and down hill. And then we ran out of road. OK, new plan. Cross over to the Lower Loop and take it backwards, since we know it would have to come out where we started. Yes, going the wrong way on a single track is not good biking etiquette, but we did it anyway. After a while we met up with a guy named Rex who explained how to get to a jeep road. So we did that for a while. Rex came back to make sure we ...

    ... to stop for snacks. We passed the University of the Incarnate Word, where my grandmother Dorothy Hoyt attended many years ago. On the ride back we passed the San Antonio Zoo, the Last Outpost, the Witte Museum, and the Art museum.

    Back to the hotel, then walked to the Riverwalk for dinner at Paesano's - my favorite! Sat at a table outside and enjoyed their signature dish and a glass of wine. Talked about the many times we ...

    ... do in San Antonio but I think we under estimated it!! It was amazing. Sort of like what you would picture the Venice Canals to be like!! It's a thin river that stretches through the city with restaurants and pubs leading out onto the river! Although we weren't staying rite in the city, hotels also face the river so people can get dropped at their hotel by water taxi - it's all very kool. We had Mexican for lunch at the first ever Mexican restaurant. It was just like ...

    When I boarded my flight to Dallas everything was going fine but we left about 15 minutes late so I was again stressed about making my flight into San Antonio as I had no idea what time it was leaving. The flights were full as they were compacting flights so I had fears I’d be stuck in Dallas for the night which was not going to be ideal. The plane landed at 7.15pm (due to Texas being 2 hours ahead of California) and it had been a 2 hour flight. Fort Worth is a ...
