We spent four nights here during a first time trip to San Francisco. When planning the trip, we had narrowed the accommodations to the Hilton and this place, and chose the Inn based on location and the reviews on Trip Advisor. We made the right choice. It's very charming. Very small, only 30 rooms, but very clean and the staff... More

We've stayed numerous times and keep coming back! We also recommend it to anyone traveling to San Fran. Why? Location and charm! The prices are also good as is the service. From a location perspective you can't beat it - Union Square. Loads of restaurants and great shopping are at the doorstep. We also had an Avis depot a short... More

Just returned from three nights here. What a gem. Small B&B style hotel with loads of charm. From the fabulous Ann at the front desk who truly cares that every aspect of your stay is perfect, to the wonderful wine and cheese each evening where we met and visited with people from all over the world. Small, but very comfortable... More

If you want central San Francisco, this is the place - right next to Union Square. Staff were all helpful, they seemed to want to help. Rooms are small but comfy and everything works as it should including a good shower. Our view from room 403 was just a brick wall (although they had stencilled a window on it to... More

Very nice stay. Centrally located so many great restaurants nearby. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Near the train station however I heard very little noise. Nice pool area located in the center of the hotel. My wife and I felt very safe at this hotel and highly recommend the property.

Spent 3 nights at this delightful hotel. Great setting and location near Union square. Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Very nice rooms, but a bit noisy on the back end over looking a court yard with vents blowing the whole time, so was not able to have windows open.

This is a great hotel to stay while in San Fran.
