10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The room was very quaint and not super big, BUT was just what we needed! The bathroom was super super clean which is silly, but most places you go it's always just "okay". LOVED the hand painted ceilings and the feel of the place. Felt like we were in a different world:) Definitely a French feel to the place. We did not get a chance to eat breakfast there but want to next time. The location is only a few blocka form China Town, Union Square and The Masonic! I highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a cute little room close to everything at a great price!
Cons:There's nothing I could complain about at all, we didn't find anything we didn't like(for my husband to not find something is beyond a miracle haha) It was even decorated all like Chritsmas! Felt magical;)
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We loved the location, it Was walking distance from Chinatown, the mall, Museum of Ice Cream and so many great places to eat. The staff was so friendly and helpful with everything. The hotel is beautiful, very old designed just like you would imagine a French hotel in 1910 should be. It’s perfect. The bed was comfortable, the restaurant was incredible, the food was delicious. I’m honestly amazed at how wonderful our stay was.
Cons:The only bad thing about thing hotel being so old is that they don’t have air conditioning but it gets cold in San Francisco at night and the hotel provides fans so it’s just as comfortable regardless.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The service was spot on as well as the entire decor of the place. Very beautiful and clean. The room was quaint and delightful. I enjoyed the bathtub very much.
Cons:The heater was a little hard to use.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Everything about the hotel, it was charming, very clean, the people were very nice, the room was comfortable. Loved the decor and the French influence. I would defintely stay there again and would recommend it to family and friends. Loved the old elevator, reminded me of the one when I lived in San Francisco many years ago. I am planning on another trip to San Francisco in the near futrue and would like ot stay there again. Close to Union Square and stores and restaurants. Want to try their dinner next time.
Cons:Dont have any dislikes whatsoever
