“Friendly Staff & Fantastic Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a Victorian building-expect small rooms! The charm and location are worth it. You are in a historic area in San Francisco with good transportation choices. If you choose to drive, park your car with valet, the daily fee entitles you to in and out privileges which is an excellent deal. You will feel safer returning late at night rather than walking around the Civic Center area. Safer to walk around Hayes area where there are a lot of restaurants and shops. Junior Suites have more room than regular hotel room which is very tiny. But heck, who spend all of their time in a hotel room while in San Francisco? Sit in the front lobby and enjoy reading the paper with a cup of coffe or tea and watch the world go by. The staff are excellent and very helpful. Smile.

Room Tip: Rooms in middle and back have less noise. Head for Hayes Street for dining and shopping. Take free...

This place was extremely quaint, lovely and clean. The service was excellent. I was not impressed by the breakfast or the lift which was a bit old school and spooky. The location was great, close to bus stops etc. I'd definitely stay there again.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in October and was really pleased with our choice. It's quite overwhelming with the choice in San Francisco and we wanted something with character which this place certainly had. The staff were exceptional, always helpful and cheerful no matter what time of day. They have recently opened a restaurant which we didn't get to try but had a drink in the bar, they had a great selection of all types of drinks and again the staff were really friendly. As for location it's not in the centre of the hussle and bussle but we didn't want this anyway, there is a bus stop right near the hotel which the hop on hop off bus tours stop at but if your not shy of walking which we weren't it was only a 20 minute / half hour walk to the centre. There are also several restaurants and bars just round the corner from the hotel too. The rooms were very clean with really comfy beds, kitchen facilities and TV. We couldn't have asked for any more and highly recommend this hotel to anyone. If you have a booking to see and opera - even better!

Wonderful boutique hotel with cheerful, friendly, helpful staff. Excellent new Scandinavian restaurant on site Le Plaj and lively bar. Excellent location, walking distance to Westfield Center upscale mall on Market Street, City Hall, Symphony and Opera, longer walk to Embarcadero but doable. Great boutiques and cafes on Hayes Street.

Room Tip: Ballet rooms small but have microwave, frig, sink, plates, glasses, utensils.

Our week stay at Inn at the Opera was great. Although a bit small, we did have a kitchenette with cutlery and plates ( used it for leftovers). Rooms were clean and replenished daily; staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfasts were fine too. Within walking distance of city bus & BART routes. Close to opera house and city hall. Would recommend this hotel. - Beth

An extremely comfortable and lovely old hotel if you want to stay away from the Wharf. Great breakfast and really friendly staff. Check out walking routes at night, you might want to take a taxi as there are some streets best avoided in Tenderloin unless you are familiar with the area. Would highly recommend and definitely stay here again if/when we return.

A friend & I were in SF in Sept. for a girls getaway. After much research, we chose Inn At The Opera and it did not disappoint! We stayed 3 nights in an Opera suite, which was perfect. You enter into a small common room with kitchenette. My friend took the large bedroom & full bath off one side of the common room, and I took the french-door "den" with pull out couch, it's own tv & second full bath. We had a lovely "euro" style breakfast (included) each morning and ate a fantastic dinner one night downstairs at Plaj. It was packed due to a recent rave review by a local critic. The other nights, we walked 5 minutes around the corner to Hayes St., where there were cute boutiques & restaurants. The hotel's location is a little off the beaten path, which we liked. It was quiet, clean and we didn't feel at any risk. We walked one day thru Japantown to Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow, & the Marina. I wouldn't recommend walking to Union Square. The hotel staff was very professional & helpful & the doorman hailed us a cab right away. We would have paid much more for separate rooms in another hotel. This spot allowed us to be together with our own space & baths. Great value in the city!
