The staff was very nice and helpful, the rooms were overpriced but ok. The location worked well for us. The online pictures didn’t really match with the current condition so I assume the pictures were taken a while ago.

Very charming French-style cozy ambience located in downtown San Francisco. Within walking distance to Chinatown, North Beach, MOMA, Embacadero, Union Square and Powell station! Breakfast included, garden variety but good enough to start off the day! Unlimited bottled water, coffee and tea in the basement lounge. Lounge is charming, hardly used by anyone, so, good place to escape for some quiet downtime. Love the outside patio, small but a little green oasis.

Mattress needs change! It gave us such a terrible sleep. Service was great. Breakfast was fantastic. Compliments wine and free champagne for being gold members of Hotels.com was a great start. The issue was the bed. We could barely sleep, it was such a terrible mattress.

The Petit Auberge is a wonderful little boutique hotel that’s close to everything in the Union Square area. They partner with the White Swan Hotel two doors down for evening wine and cheese gatherings and a wonderful continental breakfast each morning in a beautifully decorated, lower level parlor. The rooms are only slightly dated, but we thought it add to the charm. Our room even had a gas fireplace! The Petit Auberge is a great choice for your stay in San Francisco.

We were on the main floor; so, maybe request a more quiet room. We heard everything: Screams from outside, garbage trucks, banging and moving of suitcases, conversations in other rooms. Also, get a fan--super hot rooms. Also, our room was not cleaned as requested. Nice breakfast, and good happy hour.

Hello Lianne, Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for all the inconvenience during your stay with us. Yes, we definitely suggest a room on the upper floor in the back side of the building if you need a quiet room. On your next visits, we can pre-assign you to a quiet room. The typical weather in San Francisco is much cooler than the rest of California. The city is actually a peninsula, surrounded on three side by cool water where the Pacific Ocean on the west meets the bay on the east. San Francisco has microclimates within its city limits. This area is considered as Mediterranean climate: hot, dry summers and cool and rainy winters. We usually have a warm season in mid-June. We have available portable fans to use if your room is really hot. On behalf of our team, I'm so sorry if your room was not cleaned as requested. I know we have upset you and for that we are very sorry. We train every staff to take care of all guests' requests. Rest assured that this won't happen again. Please contact us directly should you need anything at all to make you feel better. We look forward to hearing from you. Once again, thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. Have a great day and a safe travel! Best regards, Cristy Flores Petite Auberge, San Francisco

Loved this hotel for a couples stay. Friendly service and the addition of breakfast and wine with nibbles made it a great value. The building is old but they’ve managed to make it charming and welcoming. All the amenities you need. There is not air conditioning so request a fan if you sleep hot.

The Petite Auberge provided a romantic, whimsical, and comfortable stay for my wife and me as we finished off a delayed honeymoon in California. The location, aesthetic, and staff were delightful! We came for the wallpaper and will return for the people!
