This charming boutique hotel was in a great location for our latest two night stay in SF. There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood and, in fact, their in-house restaurant is terrific. Our only complaint was that we could hear conversation from the lobby at all hours. Try to avoid Room 26. The rooms are small, but serviceable. The... More

If you're seeking a spot close to Opera and Ballet this is the place for you. The room was clean and Oscar presented a continental breakfast every morning. The property featured a restaurant, but we didn't have an opportunity to try it. The concierge was helpful. The biggest downside I would say is the walls are very thin and I... More

Thank you for your kind words about our breakfast server, Oscar. I'll be sure to personally pass along the compliment. I do apologize about the late night noise, and wish I could have remedied that for you. I invite you to stay with us in the future, and want to thank you for taking the time to review our property!

Fine property in San Francisco. The staff is top notch; knowledgeable, friendly and make you feel they truly want to be of help whatever your needs may be. The hotel is charming, very clean and in an interesting location. I got to see Johnny Mathis in concert right across the road. Still terrific! A delicious breakfast is offered daily and... More

Breakfast was as good as one can expect,fresh fruit, bagels, muffins, etc. the restaurant Plaj, was very good, great food excellent service.

The hotel is right next to San Francisco Ballet School so it's convenient for parents of kids going to SFB. However, the hotel room and restaurant was dark and dreary. The room was so tiny - smaller than rooms in NYC and Tokyo! The chair in the room was a dining room chair, not an upholstered chair. No desk. Barely... More

Hotel is warm and cosy, with a pretty reception area. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located with good transport links, but borders on to questionable neighbourhoods making it difficult to wander out on foot particularly after dark.

This is a nice place to stay in S. Francisco. You have a stop of the 2 storey turistic bus (nice to know the city) right in front of the hotel, and you also have the metro station just a short walk from the hotel entrance. The rooms are small but the hotel is a nice pick.

What an excellent boutique hotel. We spent 7 days on an Interval International exchange. This hotel is across from the town hall, opera & symphony orchestra. Four blocks down is the trolley cars to the Embarcadero(down Market St) or the Castro in the opposite direction. We had a 1 bedroom Symphony room. It was elegantly presented and very spacious.

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
