Interiors not so appealing for the price paid

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: High Speed Internet facility (better than many other hotels), nice hot water shower facility
Cons: Please include a small working desk (instead of the huge cupboard that takes up 1/4 of the room), an iron box and re-do the bathroom tiles, incl A/C.
Negative points - Front desk closes very earlier than expected and opens late for which we would have to go to the White Swan Hotel again.hallway is a very narrow one and the room/bathroom have very very old flooring and they also look worn out. To our dismay, we came to know after arriving that the hotel does not have the A/C facility which was the most difficult part on a warmer day and the room does not even have an iron box. very old building & wood creaking noises while people are walking around. ++ points - good hot water shower facility and very good high speed internet facility; The hotel is within walking distance to many great locations in the city and is very convenient to the shopping centers which is a huge +++.. Overall the experience was merely OK; We felt it was NOT worth the money that was paid. we wouldn't recommend the hotel to anyone especially for those who would like to stay/vacation in the city during spring/summer seasons.

Hi VA, Thank you so much for your review; we surely appreciate the detailed response as it will all for us to better anticipate the needs of our hotel guests. We are glad that you enjoyed our central location. With San Francisco experiencing a late-blooming summer this year, there have been a few warm days. Our historic hotel does not have air-conditioning as the weather is relative mild year-round. We value your patronage and all the best! Michael Singleton Operations Manager

Exceptionally friendly atmosphere

Posted Aug 18, 2016
The Petite Auberge is a well-located, small hotel in an older building. It is well maintained and has very friendly staff and a generous policy of supplying free drinks and nibbles each evening, as well as home-baked cookies in the afternoon and breakfasts, all included in the room tarif. The evening wine and nibbles events encourage guests to mingle and chat, generating a very friendly atmosphere. My room was very comfortable, but the older building means that noise from the street is not acoustically blocked, as it can be in newer buildings. Occasionally there was street noise at night. This was the only negative, but it was minor, and clearly a function of staying in an older building. I really enjoyed my stay there and would return.

the hotel has warmth and charm but is showing age.

Pros: Staff. Breakfast.
Cons: Noise. Rate the rooms to reflect their varying standards.
Location: Location is moderate. Access on foot can involve some steep climbs, but it is San Francisco.
This is a nice, moderately comfortable hotel. But there are some rooms that aren't up to standard. When a hotel needs to offer a written warning that noise from the rooms above can be so disturbing that earplugs may be necessary, it is not a good sign. From my room every step taken in the room above set off a creaking from the floorboards that could be heard loudly below. the room had no fridge and the bathroom was too small for a hand basin, so that was placed outside. No fridge and broken window locks caused security concerns. The bed was advertised as a queen size but was very clearly a regular double. After booking more than two months in advance and paying a relatively high rate, these aspects detracted a lot from what is largely a decent hotel with fantastic, very helpful staff. Also on the positive side, the included breakfast is very substantial and of high quality and the daily wine tasting sessions are generous and a great idea. Worth a visit, but ask for an upstairs room.

OK for a quick stay

Posted Jun 28, 2016 on Hotels
Fine enough, we drew a downstairs room and the window didn't have security, so we needed to close it when we weren't there and at night. They should provide a fan to those rooms; even though SF isn't often hot, it was warm enough to warrant something in a closed room.

Dear Thomas, Thank you for your review! We value your patronage and feedback as it will certainly help us to incorporate elements that will help to elevator service and hotel offerings. Though we have rooms on our first, ground level, our hotel room facilities are secure as our facility perimeters are enclose with key access only. All the best and safe travels!
