Very convenient for parents visiting their children at UC Berkeley

Not great especially for the price. There's quite a list of problems with the room but options in the East Bay are limited.

Location ideal for visiting Berkeley. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Quirky, definitely Berkeley. Thin walls. Room smelled of fresh bread in the morning from bakery below.

The location was good. No ice machine and only one elevator

Elevators took forever and the hot water pulsed in and out

Really uncomfortable bed. Shower head was really low (maybe 5’6”) and water temp was very irregular. Location is great for UCB, and avacado toast was tasty. My wife had a glass of wine and said it wasn’t good fwiw.

Location near campus was very walkable. Restaurant & bar had limited & unpredictable hours. Breakfast menu limited. Great bartender on Friday night.

Nice small boutique hotel walking distance from campus.

The hotel is older, walls were thin. The staff, were great! Good location to where I needed to be and no issues. I would stay there again.

great overall. Love the environment and the decor. Defintely recommended

I had leave the hotel because hotel restaurant turned on the music so loud my heart was beating, I'm on room number 208 right above the restaurant. I was complaining the hotel staffs said so sorry nothing we can do, that reason why I had to leave the holtel. I told them I will the police the hotel staff said please do not call the police. I checked out the hotel last night and asked the hotel i want my money back.

The rooms are small (it's an old building), but they're clean and very pretty. Staff is super helpful. Location is awesome, it's a short walk to Telegraph and a longer but doable walk down to Shattuck, so it's a convenient location if you want to be in that general area.

Stayed 3 Days - very enjoyable. Breakfast menu limited. Hotel decor ok. Liked the area and proximity to family. Hotel parking very expensive, but also very convenient. Would consider staying here again

Great hotel. Cool decor and staff that's quite accommodating. We highly recommend it.

Everything was convenient. Shower didn’t have hot water though..
