  • Perfect stay to visit UC Berkeley

    by travellertpe2017 on 2019-10-17 07:37 pm

    We came to UC Berkeley to visit our child. The location of Berkeley City Club is simply the best choice, only a block walk to the main campus. The hotel itself is a historic building yet with fantastic service and modern facility. Thru balcony of our room, we could see Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. Complementary continental breakfast and parking is another advantage.
    Will definitely stay here for next trips.

  • Wonderful architectural treasure

    We stayed at the Berkeley City Club for a family event, therefore got a really low rate for a king sized room. The rooms are basic but quite lovely, old fashioned and comfortable. The building is wonderfully located (Chez Panisse restaurant is a short walk away) adjacent to the Berkeley campus. Built in 1929 and designed by Julia Morgan (who also designed Hearst Castle), it features lush courtyards, an indoor swimming pool, and stunning leaded gothic arched windows. It's a blend of Romanesque and Moorish architecture and well worth a stay. A landmark historic hotel.

  • Convenient, Quiet, and Elegant

    This is a beautiful historic property located in a quiet, convenient neighborhood near downtown Berkeley. Security is excellent. Your stay includes a basic breakfast buffet in a lovely setting. The hotel is very relaxing; the rooms are affordable, small, but very clean and well-appointed. Very courteous, helpful, professional staff. The lack of air conditioning was a factor on this particularly hot day, but fans were provided and made the room more comfortable. Also note that the restaurant is closed on Mondays - I ended up too tired to go out and used GrubHub. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Cozy old place

    The scale of this hotel makes is comfortable. However, rooms are small too. Pool is good for lap swimming. Restaurant and bar closed on Sun and Mon. Good location to walk everywhere. Breakfast was adequate.

  • Unique, old-fashioned hotel in a lively neighborhood.

    While the room was small, it had character and was perfectly appointed. Great bed. Luscious linens. Decent view. Loved the windows that opened, allowing for a breeze. And everything was clean and tidy.

    Two complaints: It felt weird being repeatedly identified at the front desk as a "Hotel Tonight" customer. It was uncomfortable and unprofessional, and I'm not sure why it was relevant to anything but the hotel's own bookkeeping.

    Second, people rave about the restaurant, but I had a salad, fries and a glass of wine for lunch and it was some of the dullest, most uninteresting food I've had in months. Granted, it was only fries and a salad, but it seems like the simplest things should be the tastiest, no? And $30? Disappointing.

    That said, great place in a busy, fun neighborhood with convenient parking and BART access.
