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:
  • Close to San Francisco and its fine dining
  • Intimate and cozy accommodation with comfortable amenities and personalized service
  • Easily connects to public transportation
Petite Auberge Rooms

Grandiose shower and tub combinations, totaling 230 square feet, come with all deluxe rooms, perfect for Petite Auberge guests who wish to remain for extended stays and desire more space.

Bring Your Earplugs!

This hotel is not the value it first appears. You know you are in trouble when the room you move into has a white noise machine and advice that ear plugs are available from the front desk. I am used to so-called urban noise, but having the neighborhood's trash pick-up alley outside my window (with daily pick-up at 5:30 am) was more than I bargained for. On warm nights, you must leave the windows open or suffocate, since there is no fan (one does not expect A/C in San Francisco or in this age of hotel.) And the front desk was never staffed anyway, though you can leave voicemail. Check-in therefore requires you to ascend quite a few steps at a building down the street with luggage, then lug everything back down, walk up two doors, ascend another dozen or so steps, and key yourself into the building. Hardly welcoming. Rooms are quite tiny, though less so by European standards. The real problem is lack of space (16") for hang-up clothes. And, you will find poor work space: a credenza has a top-drawer than folds down to form a sort-of-a desktop and there is a rickety cane-back chair with loose spindles to sit on. It MIGHT be enough for one; two travelers are out of the question, especially since the bed is packed into the corner. Wi Fi was adequate. So was breakfast, though the variety was inconsistent. Everything was clean, though to call this a recent renovation is a stretch. There is no space in the bathroom for toiletries. Hot water is plentiful and fairly soft. The door locks require careful training and practice. I travel six to eight times a year and have been to San Francisco numerous times. I'll stay elsewhere next time, to be sure.

the wine is good

I love old buildings, but the Petite's elevator had an unpleasant oder. Our room was quite spacious, and the wine reception is delightful. They also have a wonderful breakfast. But they really should clean the areas beneath the furniture that are visible. The armoire was on top of the bed, and there was no closet.

Good and Bad

The location was ok but you had to walk up a big hill to get to it. The area has some bars and despite having a room towards the back, was very noisy into the wee hours of the morning. It was very nice having comp water, soft drinks, tea and coffee all day, and cookies in the lobby. The morning breakfast and evening wine reception help to cut down on expenses somewhat.

Quaint charm, not for business

A room with a fireplace can be charming, but while Petit Aberge has some nice touches like that, it lacks some of the basic. The bed was spring-y and uncomfortable and the wifi was spotty at best. Add that to the fact that my room, although quite large, did not have a desk at all and it adds up to a place that isn't a great fit for the business traveler. The free breakfast was good (sausage & quiche), but also missing are amenities like, have someone at the front desk. Not a huge deal, but a bit of a pain to have to run next door to check out of the hotel.
