    Fabulous

    The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.

    The restaurant serves only full breakfasts. It would be nice to have the option of ordering a full dinner. Water for the rooms should be free.

    I have been staying here since 1962. It is a home away from home.

    Parking can sometimes be a problem.

    It has been a terrible experience. As you know we paid a lot of money, but when we arrived there we found the following situation: - the hotel is completely far frpm the downtown and the sea - nobody help us with our bags: we have a romm ah the second floor without elevator - in the room we found our pillol dirty of blood of previous customers - in the evening in the restaurant "esteban" (internally to the hotel, the service was terrible In the morning, when we left the hotel, I said that to the receptionist but she only smile me In my life I never will go again in that terrible place and I hope that you don't advise anyone to go there Thank you

    The outside look is the best

    The room is very old styles. The bed is not so clean, my husband felt itchy when he slept on the bed for a hour. When I mentioned to the servicer, she just said it surprised her, and that's all.

    The beds were very comfortable! Beautiful surroundings and building.

    The pictures on the internet made the room/bathroom look much more high-end than it really was

    Good location, nice looking place. I booked my wife into the spa for the afternoon she said it was wonderfull

    Room was incredibly hot, it had no fan. We ended up with two fans and a very hot room. Would have been better off in a motel 6 Breakfast was terrible, I was given a parfait that was kept in a fridge long enough for the fruit to ferment .

    The staff were very responsive and accommodating. The room was very clean and comfy.

    It would've been more convenient to have refrigeration in the room. I was told they can supply it upon request, but I wouldn't have thought to request a refrigerator.

    We've stayed there many times in the past, before the present owners, and loved this place. It's only a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, and the rooms had wonderful fireplaces and little touches that always made it special. The wonderful restaurant had free breakfast from the the menu. What a special treasure that place was!

    I told them how happy we were to come back to this place when we checked in, and the desk clerk barely looked up. We were put in a room that must have been one of the old rooms cut in half! There was no fireplace, no room for 2 people, and no special touches. It was clean, and that's all I can say about the room. By the way, our room was the farthest away from the sidewalk to Fisherman's Wharf, and it was difficult to even find our way out of the location to get to the sidewalk! What a huge disappointment! Won't stay there again... Not even breakfast! :\

    Very good

    The hotel staff are really professional, polite and well-trained. They makeyou feel that you are on holiday. It is very centrally located. We booked all the whale watching and aquarium tickets through the hotel, which was convenient. The receptionist Nicholes bumped us up to a king-size room, though we had booked a queen-size.

    You cannot really use the Spa unless you pay loads of money so do not be fooled by the "Spa" in the name. The wireless internet did not work initially. I called the tech support and after 15 minutes on the phone, they reset the router and it started working. The first room we were put in was conjoined, i.e. there was a direct room that opens to your neighbour room. Be aware and ask whether the room you get is conjoined. The hotel is pet-friendly, which is not a bad thing on its own, but if your twin room has a dog in it, you may be exposed to some barking,etc.

    Good

    Reasonable price, considering we booked last minute for the long weekend.

    The photos were very misleading and made the rooms seem a lot nicer and bigger than they were. The toilet clogged in the morning. The water pressure of the shower was very bad. We specifically requested a room on a higher floor when booking through this site. I called and confirmed we would have a room on a higher floor a few days before our trip. However, when we arrived there were only rooms on the first floor available. We will not be staying here again and this is not a place we would recommend to others.
