much more careful renovation compared to similar locations and buildings. Good continental breakfast. Parking garage next door expensive but convenient. No desk in room - strange.

Great little boutique hotel

Would recommend Wed, Aug 7, 2013
Let me start by saying I would stay at the Mystic again and recommend it to anyone. It was a nice little boutique hotel in Union Square. For my taste, it could have been closer to Market though. I am not sure why they have the picture they do of the lobby, it is much prettier when you walk in. The rooms are exactly as pictured. The bar is super cool and the restaurant is pretty good too. They even do a drink of the month at the bar & guests get a card to try one for free. All of the positives being said, there are a few things I think are worth mentioning. The elevator is SLOW. Not the end of the world, but next time I would stay on a lower floor and just use the stairs (we were on 7). The room is small, but if you have been to SF before, you know that is just how it is in an older building like this. The water pressure in the shower isn't terrific. it doesn't start off all that strong and can fade in and out some. Overall, I liked the hotel and would stay again.

Attractions

We learned the hard way that SF is really cold in July -do not go to SF in July. Also, the Alcatraz tour sells out a month in advance. Big disappointment for us there. The trolley had an insane line to ride the Powell St (starts at Market) so we never did that either. I heard the other line, I can't remember the name, is easier but not as cool. The bus we tried to catch was overloaded and wouldn't take us so we walked forever to get to Fisherman's Wharf. Maybe we didn't plan well, but these were our big disappointments with the city.

Very friendly staff, beautiful hotel & room. Wifi was extremely slow at all times, along with the elevator. Otherwise highly recommended!

Friendly staff, very clean, good for single travelers. It could be better if the breakfast is a little better.

Inexpensive Chic Hotel Tucked in a relatively quiet corner in Union Square

Would recommend Thu, Jan 10, 2013
The price can't be beat. Beds are really comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. In the room, I imagined the interior designer must have been an artsy type that painstakingly shopped for the perfect furniture pieces in antique stores and gave them all a major modern face-lift. There is jazz playing in a beautiful 2nd floor bar lounge every night! The hotel sits in a relatively quiet corner because there is a street tunnel right next to it...so not a lot of foot traffic and yet it is just steps away from everything union square offers. Plus, the staff is so incredibly professional and nice. The cons, as others have stated, are the incredibly loud garbage trucks that come at 4-5am. Tip: avoid the north side of the building (odd numbered rooms) to avoid the garbage truck noise.

Dining

Complimentary breakfast from 7am-10am is really worth it. Also live Jazz and dinner/cocktails every night on the second floor bar lounge.

Great location BUT

Would not recommend Sat, Dec 29, 2012
The location of this hotel is fantastic and right in the middle of everything. My main issue with this hotel is that the garbage men are seriously there at 5am and are there for hours. I had the worst time sleeping because of the loud noises produced and which echoes due to the placement of the hotel. If you are a heavy sleeper or don't mind getting up at 5am then I say this hotel is for you. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. The room itself is fine, the bathroom was clean but didn't smell sanitized. Again, you can't beat the location. Tip: google maps gives horrible directions on how to get to the hotel. Park at the parking structure which offers overnight parking for about $35 and go to the bottom floor which drops you right in front of the hotel.

Roomy and Stylish

The front desk was super friendly, the hotel is clean, newly remodeled and in a convenient location to Union Square and the cable car.

Entertainment hint

Jump on the cable car and go for a ride.

Great spot for a solo traveler

Would recommend Sun, Oct 7, 2012
The room was small and there aren't a lot of frills (I don't even think you could rent movies via the in-room flatscreen TV) ... that said, the location was perfect and the fact that breakfast was included was a real bonus.
