We (5 of us) are fron a large East Coast city thus have seen it all. The hotel is a fun place but beware of the noise between 130 and 3 AM when bars empty. You also have LOTs of homeless in the area thus a stench however the dope smoking masks the smell. As with other reviews the wifi... More

This is a great old-fashioned hotel in an excellent location. It is an easy walk to Union Square and the shopping area. The hotel itself is heritage listed and the lobby is beautiful. We had a "parlour suite" which was great as it had a bedroom with two QS beds, a living room, bathroom and kitchen. While it is old... More

The hotel is clean, breakfast was poor, room was capacious. Toilet and bathroom were very good. No air condition or safety deposit box in the room.. There is a supermarket just across the street. Overall is good.

I have been coming here for years now and just love this hotel. It is very close to shopping and many great restaurants - just a short walk. If you do want a taxi, the staff is so helpful and will gladly hail one. They have complimentary continental breakfast in the mornings and wine and cheese in the late afternoon.... More

The rooms are very spacious and the hot tub has built in jet stream which is a nice bonus. Staff was very friendly and helpful. many good dining options nearby and reasonably close to Union square (5 minutes'... More

All good and reasonably priced. this hotel really tries to be a great place - with a breakfast of fruit (melon... More

This hotel represents good value for your money. The place is old but well maintained. There is no luxury there, but the hotel has the necessary to make you feel confortable. The best is the location: it is just two blocks from Union Square. It is easy to take public transportation; San Francisco is not the best place to drive,... More

In may 2013 my husband, my 11 years-old son and I stayed four nights at this lovely hotel. We really enjoyed being in a charming place, a victorian-style "palazzo" very elegant. It is very near Union Square and most important touristic places in San Francisco. Our room was big and comfortable, with a small kitchen (this was a nice surprise... More
