Very beautiful petit hotel. Excellent service from all staff. Great breakfast included! The elevator was not working during all stay so going up till 3th floor to the room was unconfortable. Location is good but not the best of san francisco. Room super nice big and confortable

Enjoyed the warm ambiance of included happy hour by the fire (and Leon's big smile), comfortable pillow and mattress and furnishings, cozy rooms with fireplace and stocked refrigerator, and delicious fresh breakfast buffets. A European retreat mid-city within comfortable walking distance to Union Square, financial district and the wharf. Our room toward back of building was quiet. Look forward to...

Stayed at their sister property a week prior with my sister before her trip and had to come back and stay here at the white swan with my mom. The rooms are spacious and so cute and elegantly decorated! Wish I could stay here more often :)

Found the Inn on Trip Advisor. So glad I chose it! Room decor was so cool; English with funky art. Good sized room with little niches to make it seem like your own flat. Fridge with waters and sodas was a great touch. Lovely common area downstairs with terrific breakfast. Staff very helpful and kind. Great location too.

Loved the room. Large and very homey. Comfortable bed and pillows. Nice to have a fridge in room. Felt like an Inn rather than a hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly. Great breakfast every morning. Nice to have complimentary water and soda in the room every day. Homemade cookies every afternoon. No A/C in room, which was fine for us...

Great service staff that makes a difference! Very charming boutique hotel and I'll be back ! The antique lift could be maintained to prevent lesser breakdowns. The guests lounge at the basement was very cosy and gave a home away from home feeling .
