We stayed at The Baldwin hotel for 4 nights. Can't say anything bad about the hotel, extremely clean and comfortable room. Very central to Union Square and shops. We had 2 children with us each day after the room was cleaned we would come back to find different animals made with the towels on the bed which the kids loved.... More

Good location next to China town gate, we walked to all the usual tourist sites including Golden gate bridge but that was a long walk! 2 min walk to Union Square and all the shops and easy to get to from airport by BART. Room was a good size, good free wi-fi, free tea and coffee in lobby 24 hours,... More

Clean, comfortable room; recently renovated. Excellent value compared with the relatively expensive competitors in the neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay here very much and will return the next time we visit.

We had a double room and it was immaculate. The desk staff were great but the cleaner should receive a special mention as our room was spotless every day. Great location for all things San Francisco. The only downside is the very noisy garbage collection every night. Although we were not sure that it wasn't people scanning the bins for... More

The hotel has a great location near Chinatown and Union Square. The actual hotel location is also a charming French neighborhood with good restaurants and bars. This isn't a luxury hotel, but my room was clean with a wonderful claw-foot bathtub. I didn't have any problem with noise. It's a great value in the city. The staff was helpful and... More

The hotel is nice, close to Chinatown and only 30minutes stroll to fishermans wharf, Rooms are okay size a little bit small, not much else to say, wasn't bad that's the main thing I guess. Just a place to sleep for the price you can't go wrong

Hotel is right next to Union Square and Chinatown. Hotel staff were very kind and helpful. Only problem was the room was quite small as was the bed. It can also be quite noisy at night but it was to be expected with a city centre hotel!

My room was on the 7th floor on Grant Ave and was more than adequate for 1 person. I did ask if I could move as I found the bath floor too slippery but a bath mat was immediately supplied and the problem solved. There was a fan in the room and a small window to open but the Grant... More

The rooms are quite small and the hotel is old but it s located right next to Chinatown and only a few minutes walk from BART. You can get to Pier39 in under 30 minutes. Even though the hotel is located next to a street, there was no night traffic to wake you up.

What a disappointment. The room was big enough for two adults but in our case we also had two children with us. An extra bed and babybed in the same room sounds normal to them. So we needed to put our suitcases on the bed everytime we needed to open them and pile them in front of the door when... More

Dear guest: Thank you for choosing the Baldwin Hotel, we appreciate your business and comments. Customer satisfaction is always a top prior and we're sorry to hear about that our standard service didn't meet your expectation. From our record, seems like you have a room with 1 Queen size bed which is good for standard double occupancy. We do have... More
