I wanted a hotel close to Union Square. This was just two blocks uphill and two blocks along. Really cute rooms and decor (old world) with friendly, helpful staff and some nice little touches like cookie jar at reception and complimentary drinks and snacks during happy hour each afternoon. Note that the reception area is only staffed a small part...

The hotel is perfectly situated near Union Square and we were able to walk to many destinations, including SFMOMA. The room was very clean and cosy, with extra high ceiling and a working fireplace. I loved it. The most unusual feature of this lovely hotel is the daily happy hour, a reception for all guests with free wine and a...

We spent 5 fabolous days at the Petit Auberge. The ambience is cozy and friendly. The courtesy wine at 17h is an excellent opportunity to meet other travelers for interesting discussions. The room with fireplace was romantic, cozy and wide. Breakfast choice is limited, however they change the specials everyday bringing novelty. I would repeat!

Our stay was great except for booking and billing. We had booked a room already when we received an email with a Park and Shop special for the hotel. So called to cancel the previous booking and book the new deal. Ended up with 2 rooms booked after several conversations with booking and desk staff. Got it straight at check-in,...

HI Calred53, Thank you for being a valued repeat guest. We hope the back and forth regarding the different reservations was not too much of a hassle; we're delighted our guest services team was able to make it right upon your arrival. As parking was removed, given you opted for the parking package promotions, the additional expense should not be...

The room we had was very nice and the staff and amenities were outstanding but the bed was one of the most uncomfortable ones we have ever slept in. The king size bed sagged terribly and we did not get much sleep because of it. If the bed we had was more comfortable we would not hesitate to stay here...

Had a wonderful time. Loved the breakfast and wine reception everyday. FYI the trash man comes very early, which seams to happen everyday. Ask for a room in the back may help this. We would stay here again.

Pensione style hotel in a great location near Nob Hill and Union Square. We got a great rate on the King size Fireplace room on the Sunday night of Thanksgiving weekend. The Hotel is extremely well cared for for the age of the property. The room was spacious and breakfast was good. Two cons or areas to improve: it would...

Dear JohnSF8, We really appreciate your business and thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! I apologize that we failed to meet your expectations surrounding the housekeeping experience. A base expectation of hotel guests is for guest rooms to be serviced daily unless otherwise noted. I will be sure to follow-up with our team regarding this oversight....

Just darling, a lovely breakfast and staff, and the location and price can't be beat. I recommend having a meal at Cafe Claude (about a ten minute walk) to complete the Parisian-in-SF experience. I will definitely stay here again!
