Comparing this hotel to the White Swan, where we usually stay, this hotel has the better location. It fails in other comparisons, leading to its lower overall ranking. The breakfast here is quite adequate, but you may find nowhere to sit in the small parlors at each end of the third and fifth floor, where the breakfast is served. Trays are provided so that you can take it to your room.
The room itself is small but adequate. It lacks the finer ammenities such as a refrigerator and fireplace, but otherwise is clean and comfortable. Our room at the back was exceptionally quiet, while the front of the hotel faces busy Post street. One peculiarity is that the bathroom in our room was up two steps, a hazard in negotiating trips to and from the bathroom in the dark of the night.
Internet is free and fast. It does have the annoying feature of requiring a sign in on a very regular basis.
Overall, a very nice boutique hotel, less expensive than, but having fewer ammenities than the White Swan. The location right off of Union Square, not far from the BART, makes up for most of the differences, and this is a good choice for where to stay in the city.
