Hotel is located on nice zone. The rooms are clean and warm. So beds are comfortable and large. But restrooms are available in end of corridor. Only handicap is that there is no parking lot near hotel. Generally i liked there and price is reasonable

Cute vintage place with a warm welcome, resident cat and pleasant breakfast of fresh pastries in the communal lounge. Loved the old-fashioned wrought iron elevator. Unfortunately, for my taste, the walls were very thin - I could clearly hear the conversation next door - and it took me literally 20 minutes to figure out how to take a shower in the beautiful large old bath. Also, the bed squeaked. Fortunately my neighbors retired early and my earplugs were fine. I'd suggest this is not the hotel for a romantic getaway, unless said getaway were fairly sedate. Also, it's a little distant from public transport options - despite its city location - and it's a straight walk up hill from the nearest MUNI station. So get the Uber unless you're fit and have minimal luggage. Once again, it's a charming place, so if you are fairly quiet yourself and would like a BnB-type experience in SF at a reasonable price, you'll likely enjoy it.

I love this hotel. The birdcage elevator, the whimsical paintings on the walls, Pip the cat, the croissants, the bathtubs, the location, the service. It all is such a comfort and homey place to retreat from the city.

Our favorite place to stay in San Francisco. Intimate and quiet--a refreshing change of pace from the bustle of downtown hotels. Has a European fell. For the traveler who doesn't care about tons of amenities (fitness clubs, bar and restaurant, etc.) this is a good choice.

Always our favorite place to stay... small, friendly staff, old world charm, in walking distance of many restaurants and most of the city's event venues. The rooms at the rear and side of the hotel are quiet despite being right downtown. The parking lot across the street is a big help. Love it!
