Charming older hotel adjacent to UCB campus

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: Unique older charm.
Cons: Breakfast and parking included in room rate.
Location: Visiting UCB campus, shopping and dining.
We stayed one night. The room was small but had everything we needed. The shower had the best water pressure ever. Coffee maker in the room didn't work but they sent someone immediately to replace it. Nice restaurant/bar in the lobby however breakfast was not included. Hotel parking was not included either. But, overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Great hotel close to UC Berkeley

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Cons: firmer beds options
Incredible staff (Ganah (?) the valet) and the front desk guys from Modesto and Merced, I'm from Los Banos.I love the wonderful old style atmosphere of the hotel...1 negative for me...the beds are too soft (rm 117)....I would never NOT stay there for that issue...whenever I go to UCB to visit my son I will stay here

Great location, "cozy rooms"

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Was in town revisiting my alma mater and chose this hotel mainly for location and price. Rooms are small and oldish but it works. The shower water pressure was weak and water temperature was hard to control at times. Overall a great hotel if you just want a convenient location to stay.

A bad deal.

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Acceptable restaurant.
Location: Near the Berkeley campus and museum.
Undergoing renovation. Some of the bathrooms have tiny sinks which are unusable. I requested a room with the larger sink, but didn't get one. Also, there was NO HOT WATER the night I arrived, too late for a repair. There is a terrible odor in this hotel, in the hallways and in my room, like a musty, dead, stench, which even opening the window and putting the ceiling fan on full did not remove. I would never stay here again.

great location

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Cons: Needs a gym
Location: Lots to do. Centrally located
Very nice hotel and conveniently located near UCB campus. Some of the rooms are small, not what you would expect in Berkeley, maybe SF or NYC. Hotel lacks a fitness center. Good restaurant/bar attached to hotel.

Close to UC Berkeley

Visiting Cal Berkeley for student athlete orientation. Extremely convenient location for our needs. Cute boutique hotel. Comfy beds and pillows. One negative was limited parking.

Traditional hotel near the University

Posted May 28, 2014
Pros: I enjoyed breakfast in a bright pleasant room with high ceiling. The breakfast itself was excellent and the stsff very friendly and accomodating
Cons: The lobby - wellcome area is very dimly lit, and the whole place could do with a facelift!
Location: Close to Berkeley campus and downtown Berkeley
Currently under needed hrennovation, city hotel with pleasant and helpful staff, small but clean rooms with very good facilities for students.
