The hotel was really close to Union square, convenient for shopping and getting on the cable car. Hotel staff on the whole were friendly, some more helpful than others.

Spectacular boutique hotel in San Francisco!

Posted 15-Jul-2016
If you are looking for a boutique hotel, central and with all amenities and comfort, this is your best choice. At a walking distance from Union square, you can easily hit the best restaurants and main tourist attractions on foot! The staff at the hotel is simply delightful, rooms are very clean and quiet! This is simply the best hotel I have stayed at in San Francisco!

A quaint boutique hotel!

Posted 14-Jul-2016
We loved staying at Hotel Rex. The staff were friendly and helpful. The complementary glass of wine was excellent as well as the ambience of the bar. The rooms were small but comfortable and nicely decorated. The hotel location was in a good neighborhood and we felt comfortable walking to places and it was right up the road from Boba Guys which we loved!

Quirky fun hotel in great location close to Union

Posted 13-Jul-2016
Pros: Fun staff, bar ambiance.
Cons: The cook didn't show up for breakfast on a couple of occasions so we had to go out to eat. On the days we did eat it, the food and service were good.
Location: Union Square shopping, close to BART station, easy to get cabs
A last minute problem with another accommodation booking led us to the Hotel Rex as it was close by. The desk staff were very helpful and allowed us to see a room before deciding. We loved the Library Bar which would have been better had it not been a holiday weekend so there was no live entertainment.

Hotel Rex

Posted 13-Jul-2016
Our excellent stay here started with the staff. They were courteous and very helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and had all we needed for our visit. The location is very convenient to attractions and transportation. They also helped arrange shuttle service to the airport.

Great Hotel for Staying in the Theater District.

Posted 09-Jul-2016
Pros: Location, room cleaniness.
Location: Walk to theater, dining, and shopping.
Discovered the Rex Hotel word of mouth and stayed there for the first time this week. What a delightful place! First, and foremost, the hotel is in the theater district on Sutter Street. It is a two block walk to theaters and blues clubs (such as Biscuits and Blues). Union Square, a short, thee block walk, takes you nice multiple places to dine. The Muni bus that goes to both Fishermen's Wharf AND ATT Park goes right by the front door of the hotel. The Rex is our new go-to place to stay in San Francisco.

Nice, older hotel, close to all the action

Great older hotel with charm. Clean condition and friendly staff. Located pretty close to Union Square. Happy hour at the hotel "Library Bar" with free wine was a nice add!

Nice boutique hotel. The bed was very comfortable

Posted 28-Jun-2016
Very good; helpful staff. We were not in the room much so it's small size was not an issue. When we got back to our room a very comfortable bed awaited us with clean, high quality bedding. I would come here again.
