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!!!!

Nice little hotel right in the middle of San Fran. Older style hotel but clean, neat and tidy. The location is superb - close to China Town and close to the fabulous shopping. Would stay here again. Friendly helpful staff.

The location of this hotel is great. We mainly walked everywhere. You are two blocks from union square and a 5/10 minute walk to Market St and the Westfield Mall. You can pick up the 'F' line historic street car on Market St which takes you down to the Ferry building and Fisherman's Wharf. You can also jump on the... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in august. Possibly 2 days too long, but the hotel was great. Clean, friendly staff and the guy at the front desk, victor, was very helpful in answering any questions we had about the area. The room was nice and spacious and they have a daily thing of making towel shapes when they do... More

The Baldwin Hotel is located near China Town and is in Union Square near shopping and public transit. The staff was nice and helpful. The room was very small, not air conditioned (wasn't needed) and there were few amenities. There is virtually no lobby area and one elevator to service guests and staff. It was reasonably priced and clean. The... More
