Strange title, I know, but completely fitting.
This place is a classic art-deco Berkeley building that used to be a women's residence, women's club, now hotel.
The rooms are small but functional. I can see how not having air conditioning would be a problem in the summer but the fan worked well and was quiet. The bathrooms have lovely older fittings, beautiful tile work, wonderful towels and toiletries- all eco-friendly.
Staff friendly and very helpful.
The continental breakfast (included) was delicious- lovely muffins, fresh danishes, and delicious coffee.
The place needs a good scrub and a new coat of paint, but it's location, staff and amenities are great. If they were ever to do a big renovation, I would have to lose that charm.
