"A Night in a Quaint Hotel"
We came for just a night. They do not have air conditioning and it was a bit warm but they did have a box fan which helped with the noise on the street since we had the windows opened. Very quaint and the breakfast was very nice.

Beautiful little place. Enjoyed the breakfast, the wine hour, and the room. Hotel was nicer than the neighborhood, but was close enough to the places we wanted to go. Would stay there again, and probably again. Very helpful staff.

"Excellent option for this price range"
White Swan Inn is a lovely, charming hotel. Decor is clever and hip, although the hotel has retained much of its original detail--including original bathroom facilities and tiles. Breakfast is basic but varied with different choices each morning. Evening wine and cheese (sans cheese) is a lovely break and perfect before dinner out. Staff were absolutely attentive, polite and accommodating. I would return in a heartbeat.

"Very nice Inn!"
We really enjoyed our stay at White Swan Inn. It was quaint and well appointed. The service was terrific and we really enjoyed the breakfast room/food which I usually pass on. The bathroom is a bit small without space for toiletries, but overall it was still very nice and the bedroom was quite spacious. The location is absolutely perfect for getting around the better parts of town. I would definitely stay there again!

This boutique hotel is beautiful. The location is great, we walked to Union Square and caught the BART to places we wanted to visit. We enjoyed complimentary breakfast, snacks, and evening wine and tea at the hotel. We were in room 36, at 1:45 am Thursday experienced a 15 minute burst if noise from a pub across the street.

"Excellent Big room if travelling with a child"
We stayed for 3 nights with our 13 yr old son. We had plenty of room. This was an excellent location , 2 blocks from Powell, so away from noise but close to cable cars. Awesome stay. Andy at the front desk was so helpful. He helped my husband with booking a stadium tour to AT&T park and showed us how to take public transportation. If you buy a Cable car 3 day pass, you can use the buses and light rail right to the stadium. We had an early morning flight back to the East coast and they made us a box breakfast to go. Thanks to all at the front desk !!!

Very nice stay, comfy bed, hotel has a lot of charm, old but well kept, altho it might be time for renovations, breakfast was nice, my hubby was disappointed not to find bacon on the menu...weather was perfect, was concerned when learned there was no air conditioning (didn't need it)... special 'shout-out' to Henry and Roberto for making us feel at home away from home. Overall, great time in San Francisco, cant wait to visit again.

"White Swan is Charming"
We stayed at the White Swan about 10 years ago, when you could use your Disney Vacation Club points. We thought it was very charming then, and decided to go back. It's still charming... but lacks a bit of the cleanliness and attention to detail that it had when we stayed before(i.e., roll-away bed and vacuum in hallway all three days we were there; towel rack in bathroom wouldn't stay up, outside really needed painting). Breakfast was still wonderful, and so was the "wine time" in the evening. We booked a king bed, but only got a queen! But, we would stay again.

"eh. it's ok."
Just an overnight stay in a great city...the hotel was built circa 1915 so don't expect a lot of modern conveniences, including air conditioning...but it you like quaint and don't mind cozy, it's a nice place to stay. Bed was comfortable enough and bathroom was functional. Almost no closet space though. In a pinch it is a nice place to stay but you can probably do better.

Lovely small hotel with gas fireplaces, original features such as an old cage elevator, 60's London artifacts and a very delicious breakfast included in the price. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. Our room faced the street and there is a bit of noise from the bar on the opposite side. If you are sensitive ask for a non-street facing room. Staff was helpful and polite. I would definitely stay here again.

"Pleasant respite in convenient location"
Having stayed in big hotels in downtown San Francisco and never really satisfied, we decided to look for something different this time round. Still wanting convenience to all the dining, shopping and transportation options, we decided to try the White Swan. We were so pleasantly surprised. We booked a Deluxe King room - it was quiet, clean, relaxing size, had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable. The staff were always pleasant, polite, helpful and kind. The decor fit the bill of a boutique hotel with attention to interesting detail. There was wine and hours d'oeuvres available pre-dinner; cookies or snacks available during the day. We were able to walk or use Uber conveniently to all the places we needed to go and explore. We did not utilize a car or parking while on this visit as public transport was sufficient for our needs. This will be our preferred stay when in San Francisco.

"Excellent staff, great location, great breakfasts!"
Fast efficient, friendly staff. The breakfasts are great, and the happy hours (wine and snacks) were very enjoyable in the warm living room like environment. The building is a character building, so you will not have a "new building experience", but everything is clean and well maintained. This is akin to the comfort and quaintness of a b&b, but in an old/small apartment building. Highly recommend.

Few notes, if you are an early riser, breakfast does not start until 8. The bathrooms are a little run down but clean. Our room slept three comfortably and they brought in a roll away bed.

"Retro-Mod-BnB"
We stayed at the White Swan Inn for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday with dinner and a show in the city. This place is quirky and fun! The rooms are eclectic, with a mix of traditional BnB-style florals and furniture, with a funky twist of mod style and bright colors. Our room was super spacious and away from the street--we left our window open overnight and awoke to the sounds of birdsong, not traffic. The working fireplace with such a delight! The cookies in the lobby are a sweet treat, and the breakfast is simple, well-prepared, and offers something for everyone. We would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to friends and family. Well-located for North Beach and Union Square outings.

"Disappointed in new direction of decor"
It looks as if they are trying to transition to a 60's theme and that is very disappointing. One reason we paid the high fees requested was because of the charming old English atmosphere. This is disappearing. The new artwork and decor is atrocious and the music, although I love it, is not appropriate for what the hotel used to be. Suffice to say, we may not return.

"Great Spot"
This is such a great get away spot in SF. We've stayed here several times and each time is a delight. Wine and appetizers in the early evening near the fire; free sodas in the mini fridge, four-poster beds and fireplaces in each room; the lovely clean smell all around; delightful staff; wonderful breakfast buffet with eggs, sausage, pastries and the usual fruit, cereal and toast items; cookies upon arrival. That's all within the lovely "Old England" plus Mod accent decor. It's homey and comfortable - not ultra modern and business-like.

"England in San Francisco"
My husband and I enjoy weekends away here. We're from the south bay, and staying here makes San Francisco feel even more novel because the hotel has an English country charm. It feels like we're having a vacation from California, as well as the kids! We love the fireplaces, the homemade cookies and the afternoon snacks. It's close enough to walk to Union Square or China Town or the Ferry Building. It's a lovely place.

"Taste of English B&B in heart of San Francisco"
We loved everything about this hotel. The staff was outstanding, going out of their way to see to anything we needed. The décor reminded me of B&Bs I've stayed at in Great Britain with tiny touches of 60's memorabilia creating an eclectic, fun feeling. The full breakfast buffet, the afternoon hors d'oeuvres and front desk cookies appeared to be made by a chef. The in-room fireplace was great to come back to every evening. I would definitely stay at the White Swan again and find it worthy of a 5 star rating.

Enjoyed the stay, hotel is historic (do not expect new) and unique; a cross between English country and 60's/early 70's. Room we had was very large, a little noisy being on the street side, but not bad. Staff is very helpful. The breakfast and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres were very good. Some funky places to eat and drink at in the neighborhood, Uncle Vito's rocks. If you have a car and need to have it parked, be prepared to wait a minimum of 1/2 hour, usually longer.

"Old fashioned hotel near to some unpleasant areas"
Staff were excellent throughout and could not be faulted. However the hotel was a disappointment especially in few of the rates they charge. Our room was on the top floor and had no air con so was very warm throughout the stay. The bed was very strange as it was very old and involved two very thick mattresses on top of each other. The decor was aimed at 1960s UK but was a little over the top. No room safe but a safety deposit was available in reception. Bathroom was dated but clean. Staff warned us twice on arrival not to turn left on leaving the hotel as it was only a very short stroll into San Fran's worst ghetto with homeless and drug takers on every corner. Overall summary, disappointing hotel saved by the excellent staff

This is a small hotel about a mile from the Ferry Terminal. Close to Chinatown, Union Square, Financial District. Good sized comfortable room, albeit just a bit shabby. Food provided at zero marginal cost included an excellent breakfast (with sausages, eggs, oatmeal, fruit, etc.), wine and snacks in late afternoon, and cookies a bit earlier. Also bottled water and soft drinks in room, renewed daily. Staff very friendly and helpful. Library downstairs an excellent place for sitting/reading/chatting if you want to get out of your room. No problem with noise or neighborhood. Property seems to be a bit more reasonable than many nearby alternatives. Not much in the way of additional services or facilities.

We found the White Swan to be very homey and wonderfully non-corporate. We were greeted by very nice young people and fresh made cookies. The room is big and the building used to be apartments, so it has an old-fashioned feel. The elevator is a very old model, but fun. The breakfast is good and a great addition. The hotel is also walkable to so much (sometimes a good walk), and also very close to BART, buses and the MUNI. We'd definitely stay there again.

The White Swan Inn is located close to Union Square, Chinatown and the financial district. When we are in the hotel, you are cared for by a wonderful staff. Their breakfast buffet and afternoon wine bar were lovely. There is some wear and tear on this historic building (especially obvious in the bathrooms) but it doesn't outweigh all the delight we took in our stay. The king bed in our room was AMAZINGLY comfortable. We hope to come back again soon (and often).
