“Great hotel with old English charm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for two days. Enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was fine, worked well with kids. Wine was fair( great for $10) good location some noise but your in the city!
Would stay again. Be sure to check out the white horse bar down the street. Free popcorn and shuffle board for the kids wile you sip your pint.

We recently stayed at Hotel Beresford and couldn't have been more pleased! We walked in the front door and were greeted with a complimentary wine and cheese reception in the lobby. And that was every afternoon! The staff was so accomodating - taking care of all needs, questions, and reservations! The hotel was wonderfully San Francisco and perfectly situated. We walked to the theater, dinner, and shopping. Another surprise was the fabulous breakfast in the morning, saving us both time and money! We will definitely be back!!

We spent 3 nights in a junior suite and didn't hear a thing all night. Perhaps this was because we were in one of the rooms facing inwards and not overlooking the street?

In addition to a a large room with 2 queen beds and a seating area, there was a small kitchen with microwave, kettle, oven (not that we cooked) and fridge. The shower controls were different to any others we have used with 3 taps - a bit confusing but we figured it out. Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained, looking as if it had recently been redecorated. Beds are really comfy, too.

Breakfast consists mainly of croissants, danish pastries and fruit. Coffee was good but I would like to see orange juice too. We didn't make the cheese & wine (too busy sightseeing) so unable to comment.

Hotel is in a good position for walking to Union Square, we used the Bart but found it just a little far due to a slight incline, much easier on the return, though.

We'd definitely use this hotel again if we returned to SF and can thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for an inner room if a light sleeper.

Stayed at the Beresford Arms for three nights. It is a lovely place - the re-furbished lobby is very charming and made us think about what a grand place it must have been. The morning continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were really nice --more like a B & B as we chatted with other guests. The rooms are large and very clean but have some problems - the wi-fi didn't work well; the closet doors couldn't be moved easily and the dresser drawers were difficult. Some noise at night but not too bad. That being said, we enjoyed the hotel - its location near Union Square and easily accessible public transportation were really convenient. The staff were very polite and helpful.

The rooms at this hotel are surpinsigly big and weel equiped. Of course, the cattle with coffee and tee is there ! Due to particular confuguration of the streets there, when we had a room at -2 it meant we were still at the level of the street, of course the back side street, which we found very funny. The staff is friendly and helpful. They organise "cheese and wine" serving in the afternoon for the guests to meet and socialize which we found a very good initiative. And to be honest the Californian wine they served was extremely good - bravo for the one who choose it. The location is conveniently closed to old town, commercial center, China quarter which can be reached on foot.Although an old fashioned Victorian-like style, it is a cosy hotel that I recommend.

Room Tip: Don-t be affraid of -1 or -2 levels, this is not in the basement,it-s worth trying!

Beresford Arms has some old world charm - combined with some very spacious rooms - which are kept meticulously clean, a continental breakfast (its a bit too sweet for my palette) and close proximity to the Union Square.

I have stayed in this hotel over several visits, almost a dozen or so - and sometimes on longer stays. The big plus for longer stays is that there is a small kitchenette (with some rooms) that have a fridge and microwave - else the area is home to a variety of restaurants. I have found the area safe, the location very convenient yet not so noisy. There are some nice breakfast places close by, a Walgreens pharmacy - bus stops and shopping areas within a walking distance.

Overall, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the Wifi router - if thats of importance to you. Some rooms are undergoing r...

Best Christmas tree in all of San Francisco. Friendly staff, tasty cheesy wine evenings, warm muffins & fresh morning coffee! Room are truly comfortable, glinting bathrooms always clean, kitchenette perfect homey size. The photographs in the hallways are truly interesting, not paint by numbers art. Nearby restaurants are truly delectable -mainly Vietnamese- and if you crave deli you can't get better than Dave's down the block. Our cat it so at ease here it doesn't hide under the bed! Best compliment you can five a hotel is that you don't want to leave it! Clean sheets that make you fall asleep instantly.

Room Tip: I have yet to stay in a bad room after decades of going there so hard to say...
