          • The location is great and the hotel has a nice atmosphere. The staff is the best and the bathroom is clean. The complimentary breakfast is amazing.

            The room was very small.

          • Comfortable beds and location, one block from Union square, some superb restaurants also within walking distance. Wonderful place to stay, great building great stuff and we booked through TravelZoo for a spectacular price. The staff were very friendly and rooms were cosy.

            The hotel is truly awful and the light in bathroom would go on. The bar is closed down due to no liquor license and the check in was kinda weird, i filled up on breakfast and never found the need to eat lunch.

          • Great location to Union Square and near Powell street and the cable car. Totaly a good hotel, for a very reasonable rate and staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were amazing, free newspapers were also present and the bathtub was large and the rainfall showerhead was very nice. The breakfasts were adequate.

            I expected the area to be noisy the room was loud and unfortunatelly the window you our bathroom was unable to close tightly.

          • The location is wonderful and the service provided at the Larkspur Hotel Union Square is exceptional from top to bottom. The lobby is very nice and the staff is amazingly helpful. The water is hot and free breakfast in the morning is great.

            The room was very small and had no view whatsoever, the bed we had was really uncomfortable.
