    it is an old building and so it behaves like one- squeaky wood floors-not sound proof at all- and a little worn...

    Probably the hotel itself. The decoration can be a little bit overwhelming, but when you get there, everything makes sense. The staff is very friendly and the facilities and amenities are great. Rooms are big and very comfortable. And some of them even have a fireplace!

    The hotel had an unusual ambiance. It was interestingly decorated and the room was cost with the fireplace. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was of a high standard. It was just nice not to stay in a chain hotel where everything is so regimented.

    Although the room looked gorgeous it didn't sometimes work that well E.g the wardrobe was directly in front of the bathroom door and the doors didn't close too well so two of us getting in and out and getting dressed didn't always work out too well. Parking was expensive and added a lot to our bill but I suppose that's just San Francisco.

    Good

    The little pastries which were freshly baked each night and were left in the reception for everyone to grab.

    The bathroom of my queenroom was quite small and the walls are thin, so you do hear it when people talk in the corridor.

    It is really a petite yet warm hotel. The room is clean with French country decoration; the fire place is a plus. Pleasant walking distance to Chinatown and downtown shopping area.

    Superb

    I liked the French country inn theme very much. The way I had a separate sink outside the bathroom was very very pleasant (room 36). The fireplace, the shower, it was a lovely room. Also, the daily reception at 5.30 was the best: I got to talk to the other guests, which created a lovely homely atmosphere, with good wine and hors d'oeuvres. It was a nice break in the otherwise very hectic day, a good base to head out for dinner and evening plans. Another thing I appreciated was the 24 hrs access to hot tea and fresh water. All in all, a warm and sweet experience.

    The wireless at Petite Auberge was very instable, in the end I couldn't access the At & t wireless and no-one seemed capable to help. The staff did offer the opportunity to work at the White Swan, which I did. But that hotel had an English theme, with very annoying violin music playing instead of lovely charming French chansons!I Second, I think the room should be ventilated better and there is some mould starting to form on the curtains and walls of the bathroom. These should be cleaned before it gets worse.

    Staff were incredibly helpful and obliging - nothing was too much trouble. Evening wine and food was a lovely touch and meant that guests were able to meet.

    Its very homey, loved the gas fireplace in my room and the cookies and the area :)

    Maybe the old fashioned elevator, it was a bit hard to get in and out if your were alone, but it was no biggy to me.

    Fabulous

    It felt like home. Bed is very confortable and the breakfast is excellent.

    Well, only problem is that you can hear the bathroom next door, and if you are light sleeper it can be a problem. The building is old so I guess that will be hard to fix. I personally didnt care.

    We were on a business trip to San Francisco only for one night. We stayed at the Petite Auberge because it was only 14 minutes walking distance from our business meeting place. We wish we could have stayed much longer. Our room was decorated in French Country style with a lot of cute detail - a fireplace across from the bed, antique books on a bookshelf, an adorable secretary. There were also nice touches such as bathrobes, and a personalized welcome letter on the bed. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The breakfast was tasty - it included quiche, hard boiled eggs, pastry, oatmeal, and fruit. And another nice touch - the hotel provided paper cups in addition to mugs for the coffee for those of us on the run.

    There was some noise in the morning hours when the cleaning crew was cleaning the room above us.
