Working in the music industry, we are always in needs of hotel rooms for the artist we work with. This is a perfect choice for those ones looking for a modern yet cozy hotel at a good price. Located in the heart of downtown SF, with an awesome restaurant and a busy first class bar. Rooms are not to big,... More

Great small and cozy hotel in a very heart of San Fran, located 2 minutes walk from Union Square. Rooms are not very big, but ok size for a small city hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful! Parking is, as almost everywhere in the city center, very pricey, should you travel by car. The parking house on the opposite side... More

people at the front desk were awesome. We paid for a mini suite. We got 3 rd floor. When we entered our room and looked out the frosted glass windows with a flimsy lock on window we noticed we were street level. We did not feel safe. We went down stairs and paid even more for a suite (which these... More

The rooms are a little small (but I believe it is standard on SF standards?), nevertheless the rooms and bathrooms were clean. Breakfast was quite good. Quite disappointed we didn't have time to sample the cocktails at the bar that I heard are really good! Walking distance to China Town and other shopping areas.

Spacious rooms, clean, friendly staff and excellent breakfast (included) made it a great stay. The craft cocktails at the Burritt Lounge are quite unique and tasty. Very charming and interesting hotel. I will stay again on future visits to SF.

My wife and two daughters stayed here one Saturday night in December, and were very happy. It's an ideal location--we parked our car at checkin, and then did not need it until checkout, and were able to walk to the theater district (saw "A Christmas Carol"), Union Square and a great restaurant that night (Gitane). It's one of those old-yet-hip... More

Thank goodness there is still a hotel that does not serve those damn fake waffles and plastic eggs. Mystic has fresh local (?) fruit both at breakfast and the lobby. Good bread and oatmeal and even nuts and dried cranberries. Even blueberries and raspberries. Good coffees and teas and actual plates and silverware. Great service and friendly staff. Windows open,... More

This is a great boutique hotel two blocks from Union Square. I loved my stay at this hotel which exceeded my expectations. It is a relatively small hotel with a unique character that I much prefer over the large chain hotels that dominate this area. If you are flying in and only have hand luggage you can easily get to...

It's just 2 blocks away from Union Square and a few more from Moscone Center where I had my convention. The facade of this hotel is not very impressive but once you enter it, you will be amazed. It has a very charming reception area that serves free awesome chocolate chip cookies, water, and juice. The staff is very helpful... More

Polite attitude does not cost much effort. One thing you expect after a long flight from Europe is polite welcome. Even the immigration officer smiled stamping my passport and said "welcome to America". The receptionist on call the same evening had such a rude attitude towards me that I decided (first time ever) to book another hotel and check out... More
