The reception of the hotel is quite dark and a little dated, but it does have character, but the rooms are more modern and up to date. Fridge & coffee perculator are included in the rooms.
It's easy to get to Bart 12th st station is a 2 minute walk and it's a 5-10 minute walk to Jack London square, butthere's a free bus running up & down broadway all day between the square & north Oakland.
Cheaper than staying in the harbour & good location for touring around.
Only bit I didn't like was the lack of tables at breakfast and some of the noise from trains
