At civic center, 1 block behind the Opera house. Small but very nice and comfortable rooms, friendly hotel personnel. Nice complementary breakfast. Very pleasant. Good, friendly eateries just 1-2 blocks south on Gough street.

- Small boutique hotel - Small rooms, small corridors, small elevator. SLOW elevator - Clean, well maintained - Mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, TV in room - location location location. Using public busses Union Square is about 10 minutes away; Fisherman's Wharf is about 30 minutes. You don't need/want a car for many attractions, but we rented one towards the end... More

My husband and I visit San Francisco frequently and we usually stay near Union Square, but this time, with two operas on our agenda, we opted to stay at the Inn at the Opera because of its excellent location less than a block from the Opera House and the great reviews on Trip Advisor. There were numerous problems during our... More

My family stayed in this hotel in mid December 2014. It is the go-to spot for my mother-in-law. It is an older building, what I would consider a boutique style hotel, with character & charm. The elevator is European style and is small, which is not a complaint, but it's cute. It also helps you take the stairs more as... More

Imagine a quaint, New York style boutique hotel on the west coast and you have the The Inn at the Opera. Small, slightly worn, rooms in an excellent location and friendly staff. Very convenient to many cultural attractions (theater, ballet, opera) in SF. The free breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had with fresh fruit, pastries and a... More

Very well maintained older building in the heart of San Francisco. Because of the age the rooms are smaller, but very well appointed. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Note for those with claustrophobia, the elevator is European style and very small.

My friends and I stayed here during our recent visit. My friend was part of a vacation club and was able to get this for a good deal for 7 days!

Stayed for a couple of nights here before continuing on to Napa, and fell in live with this place! Conveniently located to the opera, Alamo Square, and with a bunch of great places to dine at in the neighborhood. Breakfast buffet is great and the service is awesome! Definitely worth considering when visiting San Francisco for a few days.

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.
