I love this little boutique hotel! At first I was a bit wary given its location on the edge of the Union Square area, closer to Chinatown right next to a parking structure and tunnel. I immediately fell in love though with the decor, the amenities, and location. The room, though not spacious, is quite lovely with just the right... More

My wife and I spent one night at the Mystic. The hotel is very well decorated, very well maintained and very well located (between China Town and Union Square). We found the room to be quite comfortable and good looking. The only flaws worth mentioning is the low water pressure in the shower and the noise - We could hear... More

Cannot understand these negative comments- we stayed for 3 nights and everything was fantastic! The room was large, beautiful exposed brick showing off the heritage of this old building. The furnishings were all classy and well chosen. The bed is possibly the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. The breakfast was nice, good range of choices, and running... More

Print out from my booked room read,"Along with city views, THIS room features historic masonary walls and elegant decor, Starbucks Reserve Coffee, plush bathrobes ect." Our view was that of a concrete block shaft filled with pigeons and stained with pigeon poop. Window sils spiked to deter the pigeons. No masonary walls, no coffee, and no plush robes. The carpet...

This hotel has a beautiful modern spin on a ~100yr old building. I really liked the decor and what they are trying to do to make it an "experience". It is however a CITY hotel, cramped and surrounded by weirdos. The room is basically a queen bed with a 2ft perimeter around it. Had a few akward encounters: Right outside... More

The hotel is in a great location and has some quirky rooms. The car park is across the street it's $34 for 24 hours. When we checked in with a lot of luggage there is no help and a very cumbersome lift to use. The room upon entering we found the shower handle broken and on the floor, there was... More

If you're looking for a quaint boutique hotel in a good location, this is it. Other than that, walls are thin and the occasional sigh or cough from your next door neighbour is often heard. Lots of late evening parties. Be prepared for the noise which travels up. Only good if you're a party person at heart. Lift is old... More

Stayed here for one-night and was upgraded to a jr. suite! The front-desk staff was very friendly. The location is GREAT! Located just 2 blocks from union square. Would definitely recommend this cute little hotel to tourists looking for a reasonably priced hotel with great service and quaint rooms.

Good location near Union square, walk to BART and bus/trolley bus routes. Nice decor in the rooms. Excellent service from front desk staff. Breakfast although only a continental was absolutely perfect for us. Would recommend and certainly think about staying there again if the price was right.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Mystic Hotel Union Square San Francisco by Charlie Palmer is a smart, sleek retreat situated in the heart of the city's busiest neighborhoods. Conveniently located just one block from the iconic cable car line in the middle of three key destinations – Union Square, Chinatown and the Financial District — Mystic Hotel offers a convenient, comfortable and unique modern boutique hotel experience in a historic location. With a contemporary look and feel, our accommodations are designed to reflect the changing need of today's traveler. Enjoy high-touch service and an ideal Union Square location, perfect for travelers looking to experience all the adventures of San Francisco. Like a private club, enjoy handcrafted cocktails in the Burritt Room, the intimate film noir-inspired bar named for Burritt Alley, where detective Sam Spade's partner Miles Archer was gunned down in The Maltese Falcon. Then, step into the speakeasy vibe of renowned Chef Charlie Palmer’s adjoining Burritt Tavern, where walled-in and curtained booths create dark corners for private conversations and Executive Chef Luke Knox turns out classic food like steaks and chops done right. Knox also takes advantage of Bay area's tremendous green markets as well as the extraordinary offerings from local food artisans in menus built around prized regional specialties from Dungeness crab to West Coast oysters. That's what we like about San Francisco: it's up to the minute and still in the moment. ... more   less
