Classic old SF hotel with plenty of charm. Rooms are smallish but immaculate. Reasonably priced by SF standards and perfectly located for all the tourist attractions. Breakfast was a joy each day chatting with other guests. We walked to the baseball, wharves and downtown. Easy access to all other transport inc BART, cable cars, and buses. A variety of great...

We had a room with a share bathroom, which was a very reasonable price for the location. This charming hotel is just around the corner from Powell Street and restaurants, cable cars and shops. Each room is individually decorated in an old world style. A plentiful continental breakfast is provided ad freshly baked cookies for afternoon tea. Pip the cat... More

We stayed in this charming hotel for 4 nights as a family party of 5 adults, having fallen in love with it as a smaller, younger family group about 5 years ago. It was definitely worth returning, and we have now sampled many of the different types of room. All are comfortable, I do prefer an en suite bathroom, but... More

We enjoyed our stay. The staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed in room 301 with a private bath and we found it very quiet. We didn't have the continental breakfast because we prefer to have some protein in the morning. No problem - there are lots of dining choices in the area. Also easy walking distance to China Town...

This hotel, has a great atmosphere and is in a great location very close to the cable car stop on Powell and Mason/Hyde routes. It is very well located for restaurants, shops and within easy walking distance to North Beach, Union Square and China Town. An evening walk up to Grace Cathedral is highly recommended! The hotel has lovely rooms... More

We stayed in the hotel in the beginning of August, in a private room, with a private bathroom and toilet. The hotel located in great location, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. They have old fashioned lift (it was fun!) and a cat. They also serve good continental breakfast every day. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially Halim, from... More

Lovely, friendly, family run hotel, a bit quirky but SO nice compared to the large chain hotels. Tea and cookies provided every afternoon and a... More

I've mostly stayed in hotels which are somewhere in the border region between budget and mid-range. This one is quite firmly in the mid-range category and in general has a higher standard than I'm used to, though I did choose the more budget option of a room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was shared by three rooms, though I... More
