Library Bar was excellent, rooms were clean and comfortable, building was quiet, staff was extremely kind and helpful!
The view wasn't great, and the rooms were a bit warm, but no big issues here. This place is great.
The decor was unique, styled for early 1940's. Close to union square shops. Breakfast was good value and convenient. Complimentary wine in a relaxed atmosphere for happy hour was a winner. Sustainability effort to save water/laundry, they give you $5 to spend at theirbar for no housekeeping per day.
no coffee/tea maker, fridge in room, just expensive wines. Room was very dark, small window into light shaft, and a bit small for a few days stay.
The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was convenient and the hotel had a lot of character. We enjoyed the free glass of wine at the end of the day in the Library bar.
There was only one elevator which was a bit slow to come at times but wasn't a major inconvenience.
When we were staying there was an unpleasant smell threw out the Hotel which other guest noted.
Hotel in great spot for access to Union Square. Staff helpful and very friendly. Clean with great décor throughout. Our room nice and quiet too. Spent one evening in bar which was relaxed and comfortable with great food and wine
Clean, quite, good light in the room, nice decoration just like a warm welcoming home.
wifi access worked very well.
small room size - felt like bed took up too much of the room.
Location, decor, staff were lovely
Air conditioning was old fashioned and sounded like a small aircraft. Without it however the room was like an oven and we didn't sleep well
Room was excellent acknowledged that we were there for a birthday left card and champagne but we were on the front of the building was very noisy but the room was lovely
Convenient location Kind and professional staff Nice bar
Small room A bit noisy outside
The customer Service,the girl "Gitanjali",she had resolved the mistake that she made into my credit card even it took longer time ...but overall she provide an excellent services. Location is excellent,close to main attraction of SF.
There was no breakfast included. And no hot water in a room,so everytime need to go down asking for hot water. No shower cap provided.
Friendly staff, Old world charm
Interiors not fresh, dated, overpriced for what is on offer
Decor Staff Location Valet
Small Bathroom Slow small lift
Because we were celebrating an anniversary the staff upgraded us to a junior suite, which was very nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the view was beautiful overlooking a small courtyard. The hotel was only 2 blocks from the trolley system so we were able to get around very easily.
The A/C didn't keep the room as cool as we would have liked, but it did work.
Well situated near Union Square. A great atmosphere in this hotel.Interesting decor. I kept thinking I was at my Gran's place.Retro without being too cutsey.Not a place for those who like the bland soulless chains.
Room a bit small,but was adequate and much more interesting than usual.
You never know what you're getting with a big city hotel. The Hotel Rex was impeccably clean, decorated in a pleasing, "anthropologie catalogue" kind of way and I never heard a sound at night while I was sleeping.
Continually being kicked off the Wifi and having to log back on several times in an hour. Became tiresome, but this is a minor flaw.
No coffee in suite
Staff bent backwards for all needs. Free morning coffee. Free wine late afternoons. Clean rooms. Old-fashioned 1920s atmosphere. Good lobby to sit in surrounded by books.
Room TV monitor placed in awkward position to view it. It was to the side of the bed instead of at the foot of it.
Great central location. Free tea and coffee in the morning.
location, just 2 minutes walk to cable car station and 5 minutes away from Union Square. Room and bathroom very clean. If you get a room with a street view you get a glimpse of the skyline. Wi-fi is ok .
no breakfast on weekends ??? this is strange...but also not a big problem as you get several different options very close by ...AC was not really cooling the room..you have to pay extra for parking ...42$
Reception staff quite the best we have come across - very friendly while also professional and effortlessly helpful
The staff was exceptional.
The photos of the hotel on Booking.com led me to expect more. The room was extremely small. So was the elevator, hallways and bar. The hallway, and especially my room, smelled. They tried to mask it with air fresher but the whole place smelled dank and old.
price is tow much small romms bad futnture
Staff was wonderfully accomodating. Suite was spacious, comfortable and quiet at a great price. We parked the car at the hotel and walked everywhere! Coming back soon!
Location, staff, wine in the library bar, quiet room, character
Lack of coffee making facility in room
