Too pricey for an old small room.
Very convenient location. Friendly staff. Good handling of keeping of luggage after checkout.

They forgot to email me my invoice, which I needed for a refund. Took about three emails and an international phone call before they responded. Smallish place. I guess this is a "boutique" hotel. Thank God for French words.
The location, as I needed to be near UC-Berkeley

Dog barking and whining late at night in next door room.
Extremely helpful staff. Very close to college. Room size was good as have found other hotel rooms in this area can be quite small.

Poor sound isolation. Sunshades did not work properly.
Highly funky...in a good way.

Room is minimal in size. Old desk and furnitures. The executive level is not worthing the extra money. Very limited hours to get access to the lounge. Not convenient for most of us.
Location is great if you have business to do at Berkeley University. Many restaurants and stores around.

They didn't clean my room, when I discovered it was not done at 7pm I was informed they had no staff that could clean at night and offered me towels. Later the same staff called and said she had checked the "do not disturb list" that I wasn't on it, so no she could offer me a free drink. I have never been more insulted by hotel staff.

It was not really bad, but just room for improvement would be the parking. It is hard to get in and out if.
The executive floor was very nice and far away from the street level to be fairly quiet

Front desk was friendly

- serving in the restaurant took some time - did not like the style of the rooms, but that is my personal taste - breakfast not included in price
- location - has a restaurant and breakfast possibility - free wifi

We were bait and switched, they showed us a beautiful room on booking.com for $213.69. We got a room I wouldn't pay $25 for. If they let me show pictures of this horrible room I would show you. Am currently attempting to be refunded for that horrible mess called a room.
I liked nothing about this room, it was tiny didn't resemble the room we booked on booking.com

The bathroom sink is too small.
The hotel is environmentally friendly. Use of space very efficient. Like the old Europe vibe. Clean and comfortable.

The Durant is an older hotel and our shower didn't work great, but it wasn't enough of a problem to keep us from staying another time.
If you want to stay in close proximity to the Berkeley campus, this is the place for you. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast at Henry's was wonderful!

In room 116 (Berkeley) for three days, the electrical sockets on the desktop had lower than stated voltage making my laptop not able to bring up a screen display- when the laptop was later plugged into the wall socket, everything was fine. There is some problem with the sockets on the desktop that needs to be fixed as this problem almost cancelled the reason for the business trip.
Convenient for access to the Berkeley campus and nearby restaurants

no fan in bathroom, view of street trash isn't what I would expect of bay view selling point.
enjoyed cafe breakfast very much,setting and service were good. Dinner was fun. Food in Hotel changes whole experience for the better. Gives life to the place.

Only one night stand-- we had to flip a coin for who got the side of the bed with a reading lamp. Extremely cramped and dark. The window was behind the TV, making it difficult to open. It got very stuffy.
Great location, we could walk to the game and to several shops and restaurants

The hotel is old and dated. The decor dates back to the 70's. The bathroom was extremely tiny with no counter space.
The hotel had great proximity to the university. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. It was clean and nice linens on bed and in bathroom.
