As noted this part of Berkeley near the campus is typical urban college town seedy. But the location is great. A few minutes walk to the campus, right next to the BART station make it accessible from both airports and easy ride to downtown San Francisco. Starbucks is around the corner for morning coffee. Rooms are small not European small...

We just loved the Shattuck. The service was always helpful and friendly. You can't help but shake off any stress as soon as you head to your room through the whimsically decorated hallways.

This hotel offers excellent, freshly renovated rooms. However, they are pretty small due to the age of the (historic) building, which is now in its third or fourth re-use. As seen in other reviews, the hotel is clean, up to the minute style-wise, and in a great location. It is reasonably priced and parking in the public lot across the...
