        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          all the accommodations were great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I thought we were going to have alot of noise, but it was pleasantly quiet.

          the bathroom door was difficult to close and the shower water power was light. It would be good to have coffee in the rooms as well. That was a bummer.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          Hotel Rex is a funky boutique hotel that is fine to stay at if you are paying a discounted price. The rooms are cute but very small and the layout in ours was a bit off. The bathroom was behind the room door and was ackward to use. The chairs were very uncomfortable, the furniture old but this added a bit to its charm and funky nature. I don't think I'd stay there again but once was a fun experience.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Great and beautiful charming room. Quite spacious. Bed very comfortable and quiet

          We couldn't watch Giants game on tv

          Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Great location just off Powell, nice big King size bed for comfort, classy and characterful. Nice to have the big flat screen on wall and iPod dock

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Hotel Rex is an excellent hotel for business or leisure, situated in an ideal location for access to the busy shopping area, cable cars, theatres and only 30minutes walk up and then down to Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel staff we're all very friendly and helpful, with Maximo the dog adding a homely touch. Another nice touch was the complimentary glass of wine on offer every evening between 5-6pm. The room my wife and I stayed in was very clean and well presented, with an excellent incentive to "go green" and save on unnecessary laundry. We'd have no hesitation in staying at the Hotel Rex again next time we visit San Francisco, which is a wonderful city and we would definately recommend this excellent place to stay..

        • Older travelers

          A hotel with character! Welcome complimentary glass of wine each evening, as well as tea and coffee in the morning. Excellent location. Great value for money.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Great location.

          Overall, the quality was not so great. The towels were rough.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Great position for downtown, street cars, embarcadero. Inviting, comfortable bar to relax in after a day in the city.a delight to return to.

          9.2

          The hotel had a really nice character to it, and the location was great.

          Street facing rooms can be pretty noisy, especially on lower floors. I had to turn on the fan to mask the noise at night.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          great location, older hotel but very comfortable, good atmospere

          would have loved an open coffee longer than 5a-7a......

        • Single
          9.6

          The rooms were pleasant for the money compared to the others in the same area. I loved the theme, the bath products including the free moisturizer and razors. This hotel has a lot of charm.

          The hotel is historic, but the facilities were still very nice and seemed to be kept up to standards. No real complaints.

        • Couple
          10.0

          The feeling of being somewhere unique - this is not a generic chain. The original artwork, the library bar, the staff, all made it a destination in itself.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Excellent location in Union Square. Good value for money. Complimentary glass of wine each evening.

          Queen bed not comfortable---too much give. Would be nice to have complimentary coffee in morning. (Only availabe for early birds 5-7 am).

        • Single
          8.8

          This is a great hotel, central location and super-friendly staff.

          The shower was pretty slow.

          10.0

          Very friendly and helpful staff, perfect service, exceptionally good shape of the entire hotel and all appliances. Silent room. Nice and snuggly lobby-bar.
