    Great location close to University ave. in Palo Alto, and Close to Stanford and the train to the airport and downtown San Francisco, nice friendly staff, great rooms with nice decore, free internet.

    A bit noisy from other guests and a disco in the weekend, poor internet quality (slow, and wireless was unstable), no door til the bathroom, if your two persons it gets a bit to intimate.

  • Single
    8.8

    Nice room, very modern with all the right touches, good quality facilities

  • Couple
    8.8

    Clean, very professional and friendly staff, good location

    Cheapest category of rooms offers very small rooms without cupboard and without bathtub - it's essentially a (modern) bed plus restroom/shower with no extras. But at a good price.

  • Single

    Clean and interesting design. High-speed internet is available.

    No door for the bath room, but only curtain.

  • Single

    Enjoy downtown and googd access to caltrain

    No bath, the header shelf of small desk hit my head for 3 tymes per night. But design layout.

  • Single

    Staff is very eager to help. The whole hotel is well designed and has a clear focus on business travelers. The bed was very good (and die to my back problems I'm very picky about beds). The location is great! All in one a very good experience as a single traveler. Highly recommended.

    Since the bathroom area is open area (no doors), completely unsuitable for couples. There is a cabinet above the desk and is so wrongly placed, I've hit my head several times (on a 10-days stay).

    Great little hotel with highly efficient room design and great broadband. Ideal for business.

    Hotel needs to organise parking and/or better educate guests - I got 2 tickets.

  • Single

    Very good, downtown location. You can take your breakfast away. And one wall in a room is a whiteboard and you can write on it. Free internet access (slow sometimes).

    Very small room with no sunlight - another wall is 1.5 meters from a window. Very small breakfast area with simple breakfast - suitable for short, 2-3 days stays. On street parking - possibility to park only for 2 hours between 8AM-5PM (nights ok, however some hassle needed to find a parking space).

  • Single
    9.6

    The whole concept of the hotel - simple yet good. The staff - the modern thinking - the location.

    I liked everything - would stay there again. Already recommended it to my friends in the area.

    Robes are great and one of the wall is a white board!

    breakfast room too small

  • Older travelers

    no nonsense straight forward friendly service, great location

    a ironing board and a hot water coffee and tea service in the room will be of great help

    Great location and service

    Tiny room and only street parking

    If your trip is going to be around Standford, Palo Alto area, this hotel is ideal. It is one of the nicer hotels for this area, around the corner from great shopping and restaurants. I also saw a bus stop just across the street. I would stay again definitely.

    I did not have any problems. The accomadations were more than adequate.

  • Single
    9.2

    Comfortable bed. Friendly, helpful staff. Environmentally friendly. Continental breakfast: they offer to box it up so you can 'grab and go' on your way out. Beautiful bathroom.

    No closet to hang clothes, just one hook and two hangers. No bathroom door, just a curtain... Might be an issue if more than one person in room.

  • Single
    8.2

    The rooms are very nicely designed and comfortable. The location is excellent, just by the Caltrain station and bus hub (including free shuttles to the Stanford Campus) and the shops and restaurants of University Avenue. Nice continental breakfast.

    On the ground and first floor the rooms look into a lightwell and have no view at all. I guess on the third floor there is more natural light. However, as I was only sleeping there I didn't mind—the location more than made up for it.
