Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer
Ranked #95 of 229 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Really nice and cozy hotel in Downtown San Francisco.

Some people visiting San Francisco you might not want to be situated in Downtown SF because the more upcoming neighborhoods might be more interesting. But I think if you're visiting as a tourist, Downtown is still a good place to start your days and explore the city from.If you then also like the smaller, intimate hotels which have a mix of old architecture and modern rustic design, then Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer is a good place to go.

Also the people working there are all very friendly and breakfast for it being complimentary was quite good (serving bagels, musli, fruits, toast bread, coffee...).

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to test the bar called The Burritt Room, it's tucked in the back of the hotel and looks like an old fashioned gentleman's bar.

Only downside, it can be loud depending on which room you book. As it's an old building (with all the advantages like raw brick walls etc.) windows are quite thin.

Stayed for 3 nights in May. This is a quaint hotel, very sophisticated and well furnished. The room was a bit on the small side but was not a problem. Clean and modern. Breakfast was ample with a variety of choice. Easy walking distance to Union Square, china town. Would take 20 mins to walk to Fishermans Wharf. A really enjoyable stay. Oh as for the lift... Never a problem and we were on the 7th floor.

Room Tip: High floor facing towards Union Square

We had great time in San Francisco and this was also thanks to this hotel and its ideal location, right in the city center so closed to Union Square, China town and bus / cable car stops. We stayed 4 nights in this cute boutique hotel and would definitely recommend it. The atmosphere is great, a mix of art and vintage, very cute furniture in the room, maybe a bit small but confortable and clean. Wifi was excellent in the room, breakfast was very good and healthy although not very varied. Staff was friendly and available. Because of its location and great price-value balance, we would definitely consider this hotel for our next stay in San Francisco!

Dear Daisy_Casey,
I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed your time both in our lovely city and at the Mystic! In regards to our art work we change the artwork in the lobby and the 2nd floor foyer near the entrance of the Burritt Room + Tavern as we work with local artist to showcase their work. It's not your traditional gallery but we are very excited to have the opportunity to work with such amazing artists! You'll be in for a treat on your next visit!!!
Looking forward to your next stay at the Mystic!

Had a great trip here in San Francisco , Stacy at the front desk was really helpful, loved the location very central to everywhere we needed to go, loved this city cant wait to go back. The area had a Starbucks within walking distance which seems to be the thing in San Francisco , there is literally a Starbucks on every corner,overall had the best birthday here and would return whenever i had the opportunity to do so.
