I did not like my stay at the Sweden Hotel in downtown SF. First of all, it was hard for me to find the hotel. There were no signs outside the building. There was also a presence of drugs, I smelled it in my room. Outside the hotel, there is a huge presence of homelessness. A lot of drug addicts.... More

The only good thing I can say about the Sweden House Hotel is that it gave me a funny story to tell my friends. Picture this: I arrive in San Francisco and at about midnight I'm dropped off by my Uber cab in front of the hotel. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where the "hotel" was.... More

At the Day of our arrival we got a mail from the hotel saying that they can't provide us a night even though we made reservation 2 months ahead. Very unprofessional. Won't recommend to stay there. We are very disappointed and we won't come here again.

I would really recommend this place. Good price, perfect location (5 mins from my business office), clean. For its level, hotel is very good. It's not the hotel for the family/couples, but totally fine for 1-3 days stay for business/having fun purposes.

Good and extremely cheap place to stay in San Francisco. Don't expect Hilton quality for such price, but it costs its money. What is important: take taxi from the airport, because you may get lost the first time :)

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, it was an absolute nightmare. I didn't expect much for the price I paid, I am a very down to earth person, but this place was disgusting. The whole hotel is falling apart, it stank like everyone in there would smoke weed, the matress had a hole in it (a huge one) and... More
