The neighborhood is so-so. No restaurants on the same block, but many a few blocks away in Hayes Valley. The breakfast includes toast/bagels/muffins/croissants + butter/jam/cream cheese + fresh fruit + yogurt + hardboiled eggs + juice, milk & coffee. I didn't eat at the hotel restaurant (Scandinavian themed food), but I did stop in for happy hour when the bartender... More

This was our first stop on a 3 week round-california trip. We arrived late, but the staff couldn't be more helpful. Although close to the 'must avoid' district of Tenderloin, its easy circumnavigate the area. All in all a great place to stay if you are visiting the city.

We just got back from staying three nights at Inn at the Opera. It is a very quaint hotel. The location was great for us. There is no air conditioning in rooms. It was very hot and stuffy in the rooms. We did open windows but that was a problem early in morning due to construction on street below us.... More

I booked the largest room here in June for a stay with our teenage daughter (3 persons) and like the other reviews, this room is a great value for a group since it is really a small apt. Very roomy and enough privacy for a family or 2 couples as there are 2 bathrooms, a huge plus with a teenage... More

Stayed for four nights, quaint boutique hotel near Civic Centre. Standard rooms were very small and no views. Not that you always need one, but not pretty to wake up looking at a fire escape and really can't see the sky. The staff was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. That would be the only reason I would return. Good continental... More

We stayed at the Inn the first weekend in August 2014. The room worked out great for the 4 of us. 2 slept on the pull-out couch which was very comfortable. 2 bathrooms and a small kitchenette with microwave, sink and refrigerator were perfect for our vacationing group. No air conditioning - not a problem. It was in the high... More

We stayed here in February. Loved the hotel. The staff were friendly, informative and accommodating. We had booked a room but were upgraded to a suite because there was no parking available for us. We were able to walk to quite a few places from here, good location. Planning in staying here on our next trip to San Fran.

If you're used to being crammed into small places, living in the midst of contant construction, having to walk or take a taxi cab to every location and accepting the possibility of being mugged once it's dark then the Inn at the Opera is just right for you. We traded a 2 bedroom timeshare for a hotel room, Interval did... More

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
