If you're looking for a dun place to stay in a central location this us it. Hotel Rex definitely brings the art deco character of the area into your stay and the wine is possibly the most delicious I have ever tasted. The lovely Max (pug dog) greets you every day in the reception and the rooms are cleaned daily.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August. It's in a great location, just a handful of minutes from Union Square, the cable cars and Chinatown. The hotel has lots of character, being an older building and decorated accordingly. Everybody working on reception was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious, possibly smaller than some hotels simply because it's an old building. Slight disappointment on the beds - we thought they were queen size but were only doubles, but we managed!

This is a lovely characterful hotel in a fantastic location. I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: If there's an option to have a room at the back, take it. There's no "pretty" view, but it'll be very quiet

This place is just magical... My wife and I were commenting that the management has done a terrific job of instilling a consistent sense of pride in every employee, from maids to front desk to bartenders. Our room was the one-bedroom suite, and it was massive. Our family of four could live there indefinately! The front desk, specifically Jeff and Phil, bent over backwards to help us, and despite the classiness of the hotel there was zero snootiness about it. It's not a big-brand type experience, but if you like a unique, quaint, character-rich boutique, this is the one!

Me and my family stayed here earlier this month, we had heard about its great location, and were certainly happy to find out union square was just round the corner. The rooms if i must say, were a little small, but for a boutique hotel and family of four we did not mind.

All our requests were taken care of staright away as our shower had a slight leek but was working perfectly well by the time we had returned to the hotel, i had a great stay here :)

This was our first Hotel stop on our 18day Road Trip. Although very quirky we really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The Library bar was very nice place and we even enjoyed a LIVE Jazz singer before going out one night. We had a free glass of wine on arrival but we only had one of them. The Barman was very attentive and even reminded me I still had my other glass of wine to have the next day. Breakfast was 'nice' not brilliant but adequate. It was also exactly the same on the two mornings we ate there. Would have been nice to have some different selections. All in all I would recommend this Hotel. Very good location and very near to Union Square.
