Location, charming decor, delicious hot fast breakfast
May 17, 2015
The breakfast provided was inedible. The central heating was old and the pressure release became scalding hot. The room had stains in the carpet and the nets on the window were torn. Overall this hotel needs a complete upgrade and overhaul
Great location in central sf. The cable car stops in the middle of the intersection just yards from the hotel. Parking is across the street in a garage with agreed hotel rates that were reasonable. The staff were friendly and the old-fashioned lift was quaint.

Everything was very good. Room was clean and comfortable. And pancakes for breakfast were tasty:) Very friendly and polite staff.

We had a very small room. I'm sure they aren't all that small so I think you should ask before booking.
Breakfast was excellent as was the location.

Interior dated, breakfast only until 9 am on weekdays (missed ours). Coffee maker in bathroom.
Location with easy access to Union Square, Market Street etc, close to car rental too.

It had just one hill to get to it.
The bed, the breakfast and the French environment.

location, friendly staff, breakfast

shower curtain over bath. Duvet had sheets above & below but a duvet cover would have made it much more comfortable
Location very good. The evening meal in the restaurant was EXCELLENT

Quaint authentic European boutique experience. Very friendly staff, nice sized rooms with lots of light from bay windows. Awesome location walkable to a lot of cools stuff. Very good coffee and free breakfast.

No air condition, I would think twice during summer.
It's a charming old style hotel. They checked us in on paper sheets :) Very authentic, unrushed and comfortable atmosphere. The elevator like out of an old movie. Though old style and simple, everything was clean and worked well. Wifi worked well.

We have always stayed at the Cornell Hotel de France and would not dream of staying anywhere else in San Francisco.
February 20, 2015
Perfect location for exploring SF. Tram, buses, train and downtown on your doorstep. Breakfast is sufficient but not vast. Welcome is warm but not overbearing.

Room is a bit small, price could be lower
Excellent location, french style, very friendly stuff, breakfast is included
February 17, 2015
I felt as though I was visiting an old friend. The staff was so welcoming and charming from the time that we entered the hotel. I wish I had known about the quaint restaurant as I would have loved to eat there. We will definitely return.
February 16, 2015
Good location, cute place, but the room was so hot (in the winter) that even with the window open, it was too hot to sleep.
January 3, 2015
The location is excellent. The staff is friendly. The hotel has French decor and has special charm.

Nothing really but you should be aware that the double rooms all have normal sized queen beds. We found it ok but if you are two big persons it might be a problem.
The staff was very welcoming and always tried to assist with any request. The location is ideal just two blocks from Union square and two minutes walk from China Town. The breakfast was good and included in the room rate.

City noises take us a little while to get used to
location is excellent, helpful staff, comfortable rooms laid out in a way that makes sense, tasty breakfast

Hotel was fine but just a little warning. The cable cars are cute but don't expect to use then as a mode of transport, more a tourist thing, catch a bus.
Good clean room, nice and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. Decor was a little unique but very well done.
November 8, 2014
Great location, very easy to reach everything from the hotel. Breakfast was great, the staff was friendly. Clean but a bit small room, the design is not really my style, but still nice.

This hotel does not have air conditioning. I was concerned about leaving the window open for air because it had the fire escape landing right at the opening. Also the quaint looking claw foot bath tub just didn't work well for showering. The breakfast started at 7:30 on weekdays. Since I had to leave at 7:30 for a business meeting across town I did not get any value for the pre paid breakfast. They didn't have an option for getting breakfast early. I do not recommend this hotel.
The bed was comfortable. My window did not face the street so it was quiet for sleeping.

Lack of Air Conditioning; decades old decor; screen less windows to fire escape; tiny bathroom: inadequate desk; cramped quarters
Restaurant; free breakfast
