    Very charming hotel with lovely staff. The generous breakfast is served in their cosy restaurant. The location, close to Union Square, is great if you can walk up one steep hill for one block.

    Only the location.

    well... , When we checked in to our room there was a strong bad smell. We spoke about it with the Hotel manager (also owner) who showed us some other rooms which unfortunately had the same strong smell. The Hotel Manager did not take well our concerns when we were, actually, trying to resolve the problem in a friendly manner. He even told us to go elsewhere!! As It was a busy time of the year in SF, we spent 2 nights in this hotel and we managed to book the 3 other nights in another hotel nearby. In conclusion it was not clean, and if you choose to stay there take it as it is!!

    It has an excellent restaurant that is beautiful to the eye. The breakfast is very good. Twait staff is attentive & charming. The rooms have clawfoot bathtubs. Many French speaking people stay there

    The rooms are too small & need updating

    It was one of the cheaper and cleaner rooms we saw available in San Francisco.

    I didn't care for the coldness of the evening staff. Also, there was no air conditioning in the room, no ice bucket, no fridge, and not a whole lot of space. If I had spent less, these things wouldn't have been as big of a deal.

    The location is definitely the best attribute this hotel has. Most luxury high-class hotels are located at the same address but they cost at least twice as much! My room was small but cosy. Clean toilets, great shower!

    The SateliteTV seemed to have signal issues.

    Location, security and friendly staff. Breakfast (include in price) was more than adequate.

    Lack of tea/coffee making facilities either in room, or available elsewhere.

    The efficiency of the breakfast service was very good. The dealt with a lot of people very smoothly and quickly.

    The walls are thin.

    A quaint and very interesting European experience reminiscent of the older hotels in Paris. Small corridors, small (but adequate) rooms. Just around the corner from the hotel is the famed cable car - probably not worth using during the best part of the day, but early mornings or later in the evenings, it could be a good way to get down to Union Square (3-4 blocks downhill) or Market Street a further two blocks down. Also around the corner are a few dining options - nothing very expensive, unless you wanted to splash out at the Drake in the next block. A quieter street, and away from the seedier parts of the Tenderloin.

    Could not try the Jeanne d'Arc restaurant. Its open only 4 evenings a week for a 4-course prix fixee menu of tradional French fare for usd 45. Breakfast options are limited: served to your table - tea or coffee, eggs to order or pancakes / French toast. Served by two seemingly abrupt (Chinese? Thai?) ladies. But no, it was just their assertive voices. They were extremely effcicient and helpful with coffee and conserve refills.

    Nice quaint hotel, very central location, close to downtown and Chinatown, breakfast serviced in the restaurant a real bonus in the morning as many hotels do not offer breakfast included. Our room was really nice perfect size, and good shower. Would defiantly stay again.

    Could of offered more variety at breakfast, everyday was either bacon and eggs or French toast.

    Exceptional

    Convenient location two blocks from Union Square at a price way less than the Westin St Francis. Nice touches of French artwork on every floor. Included breakfast is quite nice -- and this is a real breakfast not some tray of muffins and bagels, but excellent French Toast or eggs served in a real restaurant! Small hotel with charm, convenience and taste.

    Lack of a hairdryer in room.

    Good

    The heater of the room seemed to be broken. And because of that, it would make very loud noises. Unfortunately, these noise making sessions would last for hours ans they happened 3 nights in a row, around midnight to 2 A.m and then around 5-6 A.M. The first night, we tried calling the janitor, or person responsible (since there's never anyone in the front desk after 9 P.M. I think) and no one would pick up. When we complained about it to the people in the front desk, they send someone to the room to fix the heater, but, surprise! At 5 A.M., the loud, bubbly noises from the heater woke us up again.

    Very well located near Union Square, friendly French staff with dog, no breakfast buffet but helpful waiters which offer you a different choice each morning, and the style and decoration is very detailed and authentic (e.g. hand-written booking receipt :)

    Thin ceiling and floors which can be noisy.

    I like the hotel stuff who were very friendly. The restaurant was very good. the price per value was fair.

    I did not like the breakfast which served and was every day the same. It is a pity that they did not give buffet breakfast. Every day we were given a plate with eggs, bacon and a piece of fruit. it is enough (not to be hungry) but not more than this. I thing the hotel wants to save money by serving this breakast plate. The hotel was located on the top of a hill which can be very hard to climb. Booked.net should have to mention this very important detail.

    This is a good reasonable priced hotel. The location is good for shopping and cable cars. The breakfast choice is limited but good. The room was clean and tidy. I would recomend this hotel.
