Fabulous 8.8 From 858 reviews

Very good 8.0
Lovely quaint French style hotel, very central to local amenities and transport. Only had breakfast there one day but it was very good. Nice touch to have a lounge and a little lobby area with coffee and biscuits available all day.

Highly Recommended
Had a fabulous stay at this charming boutique hotel. It's ideally placed for seeing the sights of San Francisco- we walked to most of them. Our room was delightful painted with pictures of flowers, butterflies and birds. The whole hotel is similarly adorned. Staff were super friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent.

Nice hotel!
Stayed for 3 nights early Sept 2019. Good central location, v comfortable and quiet hotel. We were made to feel very welcome. We did not eat there as we were out and about exploring. Would def stay again! (Family of 4, had 2 standard rooms on 5th and 6th floor.)

Lovely stay
The hotel has a great location and easy to navigate to points of interest. The hotel let’s you leave baggage in a special room which is excellent. There is an old style lift which is fabulous and really makes the building. The building is old but I like that, it shows history. We had a view of a wall but in honesty, the room was perfect and away from noise! Shower was lovely. Clean towels every day and coffee restocked. The best part of the hotel was the resident dog! So cute and happy to give some love. A beautiful golden retriever who sits in reception at times. Be careful on the stairs though! Both of us took a tumblr! Use the lift!

Quirky hotel, central location
Quirky hotel, decor more to my husband’s taste than mine. Room was clean but small. Location excellent, within walking distance of pier 33 for Alcatraz and fisherman’s wharf

On arrival, there was a problem with the heating in our room. The owner generously gave us an upgraded room & complementary breakfast. All staff were very friendly & helpful.

Centrally located but service needs to improve
First, the good things: The hotel itself is very nice, decorated in a typically old fashioned Parisian hotel style. The front desk staff are all very friendly and the hotel is centrally located. Now to the bad things: the bathroom products (e.g. Miniature shampoo, soap etc) were never filled up but we had to ask the front desk both days to give them to us directly. Also, one day the towels were not replaced despite having been used. When we were in San Francisco there was a heatwave and the rooms do not have air condition. We spent two sleepless nights in an undescribable heat! There is also lots of noise from a nearby nightclub so having the windows open was not very pleasant. Finally, the breakfast personnel could have been friendlier. They kept on ignoring our requests for a refill of coffee at the same time as they went several time to the neighbouring table (friends of the hotel owners) proposing to fill up their coffee.
