The Gusesthouse has one bedroom - its more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. nicely decorated, great bed, beautiful private garden and very secure. Its located in a trendy area with lots of restaurants withi walking distance. HIghly recommended!

The Guesthouse is unlike the stereotypical B&B experience. There are no other guest rooms so privacy is heightened. It is located in the heart of Uptown- a very walkable neighborhood- chock full of restaurants and close to the historic M line trolley (free too!) which connects to the local rapid transit (you literally could leave your car parked- for free!-...

The Allen Guesthouse is a very cozy, romantic hidden gem. Not only is this meditarrian/Spanish guesthouse amazing but it is tucked away in a great little neighborhood. We had sushi at one spot and then drinks and fish and chips at a cozy little pub next to that...all of this is right outside your little cozy space. The unique feature...

The room is very beautiful and is well appointed. The bed is absolutely the most comfortable bed I have slept in away from home. The location is within walking distance of several bars and restaurants. Breakfast is very good and I loved that we could have it delivered when it was best for us. Visiting for my 40th birthday I...

It all begins with driveway parking and a beautiful iron gate. The style of this home has a very mysterious yet inviting Spanish-style feel in the open breezeways and dark corners lit by flickering candlelight. On the way to the room, you pass the lovely private (all yours!) rose garden complete with fountain and high walls that block out the...

We stayed here on August 12th 2011 to celebrate our 40 anniversary. We're an active couple for 59 and we travel a lot professionally. We have stayed in numerous BnBs across the US. We live only 35 miles away in Denton so have a good handle on what is available in Dallas and Fort Worth. We looked at the others...

Great location in the center of it all - yet it was very tranquil and relaxing. Highly recommend it for a day or a week.

Of the dozen or so small B&Bs Trip Advisor has found me in as many countries the Guesthouse on Allen Street has to be at the top. The owner, Kay, has really thought of everything - the attention to detail is quite staggering! This spacious comfortable room has everything you could need - the bed is as comfortable as everyone...

This B&B is the BEST by far that we have ever been to!!! The location was near the downtown arts district and not too far from fair park so we didn't have a long commute. The room was so elegant and quiet for a peaceful nights sleep. I am in LOVE with the bed and pillows!!!! If you plan to...

If you are traveling to Dallas for business or pleasure or if you are searching for a romantic escape for two, reserve this guesthouse. As I entered the guest suite, I was pleasantly welcomed by soothing colors, wonderful linens, a fireplace, library and well-appointed bath area. The innkeeper spoils her guests with afternon refreshment-served in the suite or the private...
