This is a great hotel just off of Union Square. The staff are super friendly and accommodating and we really enjoyed our 5 night stay with them! Cute bar, if you’re a drinker, and great coffee shop attached. Beds are very comfortable and linens are clean. Could use a window in the bathroom and one that opens in the bedroom for fresh air when required but these are very old buildings which have been turned into hotels (in SF) so that’s just an afterthought. We loved it!

Great location handy for the cable car and easy walk to a lot of the sights. We loved the quirky decor.. The fortune cookies and ice in the hall was a nice touch. Great cafe next door and cozy bar that you could use on the day and have a drink in at night. So in all loved our start and v much lived up to the reviews

I loved this unique hotel! Great location, walkable to many areas. I liked the quotes all over the room, even hidden behind the towels. Jars of fortune cookies in the hall and bikes available to use too!
