We stayed here for a few days in early September. The hotel was well located to transport, shopping and union square. It is right near the gates to Chinatown. The rooms were quite small and we had a room facing the main street so it could be a bit noisy at times but city noise is not something we mind.... More

We stayed here during fleet weekend. (A last minute decision.) Best value, decent size room, and right in Union Square. We hopped a muni down to Pier 39 for a couple bucks each, each way. The bathrooms here are actually larger than some other hotels I've stayed at nearby. Elevator can be really slow or right there, it is hit... More

This was good for the location, right next to China Town. We walked all over the city from here and it was in a safe area. There isnt luxury here. Basic tea and coffee making facilities in the lobby, an old lift, no breakfast, no aircon. Luckily San Fran isnt that warm so the ceiling fan is adequate due to... More

The hotel is located in a easily accesible location and not far from Union Square. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the bathroom even had a roll top bath! There is no air-con in the rooms but the fan above the bed provided us with enough air movement. Have stopped elsewhere in San Fran but would choose to... More

For being a small, boutique hotel, The Baldwin Hotel was excellent! The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable for the minimal amount of time I spent there. Very good location next to Chinatown. Several small diners are nearby and the two that I visited had very good food. Breakfast prices seem a bit high at all places, especially... More

Stayed at Baldwin for 5 nights from 6th September. Everything about this hotel was perfect, great location, great staff and room was clean and comfortable. Everywhere we wanted to visit was within walking distance. This is the 1st hotel I would look for if returning ti San Francisco. Got BART from Airport to Montgomery Station and short walk with luggage... More

This hotel is quite basic and a little dated but it is good value for money and in an excellent location. It is in union square, close to china town and within walking distance of the seafront and fisherman's wharf. It is easy to walk to from the BART station to and from the airport.

This hotel is in a fabulous location making getting around very easy (I was very excited that there was a John Fluevog store a couple of doors down as I had been wanting to check out this brand for ages). There is also a fantastic Japanese restaurant and Saki bar next door, the food there was great and reasonably priced.... More

It's close to AT&T. Close to union square. You can't beat it for the price. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Restaurants are within walking distance, along with a lot of high end shops. And only a couple block from the Bart. I will stay here on my next trip to San Fran!!!!
