The staff and service was excellent. They always greet us every time we walk past. The location was really good - close to the bus stops, cable cars, Chinatown and Union Square. There was nothing I did not like about it.

Thank you for your stay with us and for your wonderful review of our hotel. We are a small family-run hotel, so we try very hard to provide personable and friendly service. We are pleased to hear that you found this to be the case! We hope to see you again the next time you are in San Francisco!

Thank you for your stay with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at our hotel. Did you know that there is a Cable Car stop just a few steps from the front door of the hotel that can take you directly to Fisherman's wharf? A must-do while here in San Francisco!

Lovely hotel, friendly staff. Good value

Hotel is in great location near union square. Staff were very helpful, I arrived earlier than expected and could get into my room. Overslept due to jet lag - and was not rushed out. Good wifi, comfy bed and staff helpful with sight seeing . Highly recommend

Would recommend this hotel.

Pros: The character and staff
Cons: More variety for breakfast and a few more amenties in rooms like a fridge (though i understand its prob not in keeping with the charm of the hotel )
Location: Its good proximity to Union Square and a good solid walk to wharf but public transport was great nearby too.
This hotel is lovely and quaint. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Great location in between Union Square and the wharf, easy access to transport with cable cart stop just outside. We had a 5 night stay. The breakfast was lovely, though would love to have just a little bit more variety and perhaps more fresh fruit. Perhaps for the rooms a little fridge somewhere to house some milk and other things. Otherwise I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to beautiful San Francisco.
