    Great spot right on Cal campus

    Excellent customer service, beautiful old architecture, very charming gardens. Bring earplugs, the windows are thin and you're basically on campus at Cal-Berkeley. Shower pressure was very light, but that's Nor Cal for ya :)

    Classic place with tremendous views of the Golden Gate bridge. Bocci court in back.

    Very retro and cool but NOT modern

    VERY cool old school building designed by Julia Morgan 100 years ago. Historic. parking can be a hassle if you don’t luck out and get one in the lot next door for $27. small room, very old tub with old shower hookup was odd - surrounded by shower curtain. strange. no a/c, not sure if old radiator heater is functional. no tv. tiny desk. You don’t stay here for modern perks, you stay here for the historic relevance, and perhaps like us you could walk to and from UC Berkeley Greek Theater for a show.

    Within walking distance to campus, felt safe, room was clean. Shower takes a while to heat up, can get noisy at various times during the day but area quiets down later in the evening. Helpful staff, hand sanitizer available. Tried the free breakfast once, very basic but it's free. Preferred to eat out for the rest of my stay.

    Gem in every way

    very close to UC Berkeley which was why I originally chose it. The hotel itself is amazing. It’s just such an absolutely beautiful place. I love that the rooms are small and there’s no TV. The staff is wonderful. Will definitely stay again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The location is great and the building is an architectural gem. It is near University avenue, quite conveniently located. There is a large pool which is great for a swim. The breakfast is rather limited but friendly service. On the negatives, there is no television and safe in the room. So, modern amenities are scarce. I found the parking quite expensive, 29€ per night.

    Our stay at the Berkeley City Club

    The property is an historic hotel, built in 1929. The building has a grand appearance on the main level. The individual rooms are small and typically only accommodate a full size bed. We requested a queen size bed, but our room was too small to fit one. The bathroom is small. I kept hitting my head on the wall in front of the toilet when trying to stand up after using the toilet. The hotel restaurant wasn’t open for breakfast or lunch due to Covid pandemic or lack of staff. We did receive a complimentary boxed breakfast.
