The Inn at the Opera is located next to the Opera (duh) in SF's Civic Center. It features tiny rooms with tiny bathrooms and a "mini" kitchen-small fridge, microwave, and tiny sink. There is NO air conditioning and only one window opens a crack. You probably don't need it but it does get a little stuffy. Cable TV, Wi-Fi internet... More

This is quaint hotel that is very European feeling. Close enough to all downtown and wharf locations. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Wonderful free continental breakfast and a very inviting atmosphere. Nice and quiet with large bathrooms...could not have asked for more. Would definitely return.

What can I say but that I love this boutique-esque Inn! We've been staying here for years, and not only do we recognize many familiar faces, but the hospitality and service only ages like a fine wine, which is to say gets better. The great thing about Inn At the Opera is its location and quality. Whether you're paying points... More

We stayed at the Inn with my wife and father-in-law for his 60th birthday. Overall, the hotel is cozy and comfortable. Even a little quaint. For example the elevator is kind of tiny and has a door that opens outward. But, while not new, they seem to have done a very nice job and we had a pleasant stay. Amenities... More

Our hotel room windows looked right into the dance studios of San Francisco Ballet - it was cool. Bus stops were 2-3 blocks away, and the location is centrally located to get to a variety of SF neighborhoods. The bed was comfy and the room's temperature maintained at appropriate warmth. Fresh fruit was provided free in the lobby each day,... More

Initially very disappointed after entering our room, Alley cats in the area would have no problems as there was no chance of any of them being swung in it.. It was described as a 'Studio with Queen bed' but really it is a room for one person.. there is literally no more than 2 feet between the bed and the... More

Close to opera, symphonies near Van Ness and Market Streets with access to all SF by bus, street car or cable car and train. First stop is Walgreens to buy a $27 one week pass of SF Muni. Cost of parking a car is $210 for the week. We took advantage of all the forms of public transportation in a... More
