I would like to see that the proper provides at least one bottle of water for each day of stay. The shower could benefit from some upgrading. The bathroom sink does not have a counter for toiletries.

Extremely well situated right across from campus and close to shops like Moe's Books on Telegraph. Also, close to some fraternities, lol, forwarned is forearmed. Lovely, lovely helpful, and kind front-desk staff and clean and cute property. Loved the Berkeley-centric art in the rooms and overall design and vibe. Very roomy lobby for lounging. Wish the attached bar-restaurant had more extended hours but get the feeling they are still crawling out from under Covid restrictions. Perfect place to stay while visiting or dropping off your Berkeley student.
