Nice, but pricy

Nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms and lots of charm. It is pricy, but that is San Fran. Close... See full review

Experience a touch of France in downtown San Francisco
Petite Auberge is a charming little accommodation in an exciting district of San Francisco, and it offers a comfortable and intimate environment for guests from the moment they walk through its beveled glass French doors to the time they check out. Intricate French art decor, a cozy parlor and a hearty and crackling fireplace set an inviting European ambiance. Afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres make Petite Auberge guests feel at home, and a home-cooked gourmet breakfast prepared and served daily is reminiscent of French hospitality.
3 Reasons To Stay:

Charming Boutique Hotel

We loved the Petite Auberge for the third time! The best feature is the little parlor downstairs where guests can meet for wine, hors d'oeuvres and conversation at 5. The hot breakfast is also a plus, not to mention the location near Union Square, the comfy bed, and a gas fireplace in the room if you choose. Staff is very friendly, and everything is clean, although not modern. If you like a European experience in a home away from home, this may be your best bet.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Park your car and take public transportation or walk. Be sure to get a map of the city showing where the buses and streetcars run. You can get practically anywhere--but have exact change. For fun, take the ferry from the Ferry Building to Sausalito and eat lunch at Poggio's.

A wonderful small hotel!

It feels like you are entering a European boutique hotel as you climb the steps from the sidewalk and enter the lobby. Our room ahead a genuine French feel to it and the relaxing stuffed chairs and couches and the breakfast area in the bottom floor lounge area made us long for Paris. The staff could not have been more friendly. Thank you Petite Auberge for a wonderful stay?

Petite Auberge - emphasis on petite

We stayed two nights at the Petite Auberge. We expected the room to be small but it was really small. The bathroom was even smaller and don't drop your soap in the shower because not much room to bend to pick it up. The bathroom was very nice despite small. No desk staff on site. You have to go two doors away to the sister property, White Swan Inn, to check in and out. Breakfast at the Petite Auberge was above average. Quiche and freshly baked pastries one morning and scrambled eggs, sausage and pastries the next. Hot cereal also available. The value was great because two nights came to only $238 plus tax which is amazing for San Francisco. Just be prepared for small. Also it is an older property and we could hear the people above us because the floors creak BUT the room had a noise machine that produces soothing ambient sounds to drown out city and neighbor sounds.

Le Central, the oldest French bistro in San Francisco, is two blocks away on the same street/Bush. Great food and ambiance. Also Union Square is an easy walk from the Petite Auberge. Powell Street Cable Car is one block away.

Quaint 'B and B'

A pleasant older hotel, clean, quiet and generally comfortable. Lovely hot breakfast, afternoon wine anc cheese and evening cookies. However our first night, a Tuesday we had to call staff at the hotel next door as they were out of wine at 6:00 PM althought wine and cheese is said to be served until 6:30 PM, this a the need to check in at the hotel several doors down while understandable were somewhat inconvient. Overall very good stuff.

Very comfortable and warm

The hotel was very nice and at a teriffic location to local attractions. 3 blocks to cable cars, union square, china town. amenities included breakfast, supply of bottled water and soda, apples, cookies, and an evening wine and snack hour & half. Room was roomy with sitting chairs, fire place and many shelves for storage. Coffee provided in room. we would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for older couples with no kids. Floors are wooden, so early risers or night owls are audible. one loud nightclub at back of hotel had some howlers at 2AM on two nights. Otherwise with location of room, noise was at a minimum.

Quaint escape in the city

Petite Auberge is conveniently located within walking distance from Union Square and right off the trolleycar stop. Front desk and staff were friendly and inviting, though rarely around, since they seem to be sharing staff with the neighboring White Swan Inn. Our room was cozy (read: small), but comfortable. Their free breakfast was very nice, usually including coffee, eggs, toast, and cereal. Housekeeping was not good--they forgot to clean our room one of the days, and some of our items went 'missing' on another.
