Almost hate to review this place as it feels like a secret to be cherished. It's like a pocket-sized Hearst castle. From my window I can see the Berkeley campus, I can hear the campus bells and the shouts of happy children in the playground...More

I think this hotel needs to be reviewed in context and not compared to newer accommodation available. Okay, the rooms don't have air conditioning but the building is nearly 100 years old; how can A/C be added unobtrusively without taking away from the building's character?...More

I was booked here by an institute at UC-Berkeley. Beautiful building, although strangely without modern wifi. I liked the location. But I was jetlagged, and both nights there were noisy events, loud and amplified music, loudspeaker directly beneath my room until 11 p.m. I used...More

I was upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a view to die for! Yes no air conditioning, no tv, spotty wifi, old lighting... yet the view and the location makes it a fabulous find. If you are older, be prepared to do...More
