Very charming hotel in the heart of Downtown SA!
The Gunter Hotel is beautiful, safe, has a GREAT location, and the staff was extremely friendly! My only negative comment would be about the cleanliness of the bathroom tile which needed a good scrubbing and the bath fixtures could use a good vinegar soak to remove the hard water deposits.

6/10 Good

Just an ok rusty in need to be polish hotel
Great location right downtown and in front of the majestic and great restaurants. Close to everything. Comfy bedding, clean , the access to the “club” level is just an access to get pop sodas and some oranges and apples ( not very special at all . The pool was ok and the gym was ok too . Air conditioning did not work at all all night making it really hot to be , specially in summers in Texas . The hotel needs a major touch up and updates as being such a great building and noticeable very old . This could be a super great hotel if they would really update it all. As a world traveler, I found it an ok hotel based on the location , the antique of the building but not for anything else than stay one night . I wish my comment will help management to improve and to rescue this old rusty jewel and polish it up
