    Do no recommend the shared bathroom situation

    The location is excellent

    -The noise level with the other rooms - can hear everything that happens with the next room -The shared toilet was not great. Everytime I used it, it smelled awful.

    Shared bathroom

    Very quaint room, nice building

    The front desk didn't inform us that some rooms use a shared shower and bathroom down the hall. To upgrade was an extra $50 for a room with a bathroom. A bit ridiculous already considering the price.

About

Overview

The Herbert Hotel is a historic property in San Francisco’s famous Union Square area. This means that travelers are tucked right into the heart of the city and within walking distance from remarkable shopping and dining areas. Yet, they are also steps from the San Francisco Cable Car lines, the Geary Theatre, a BART station, San Francisco City Hall, Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Street, and more. The Golden Gate Bridge is less than five miles away, the Oakland and San Francisco International Airports are within 12 miles, too. It is an ideal choice for those who want to enjoy lots of walking, cable car riding, and exploration, but it is also an ideal choice for business travelers since it is an easy commute to the CBD, as well.

While those who are visiting may wish to spend most of their time out exploring the charms of San Francisco and its environs, the hotel also has a lot to offer right on the premises. There is free Wi-Fi throughout, business services and meeting or banquet facilities, shuttle services, and 24-hour front desk service.

A boutique-sized hotel, there are 99 rooms throughout and each is beautifully designed and decorated in a modern and clean aesthetic. Guests will love the old world feel of the hardwood floors, high ceilings, brick walls and excellent views from each of the seven floors. All rooms feature queen beds and luxury linens, climate controls, premium entertainment systems with cable channels, beverage stations, and large private baths stocked with signature toiletries and linens.

The Herbert Hotel is a historic structure with loads of good looks and lots of premium amenities, and with its city center location, it is a good choice for all.
