Our room was quaint, and exceptional clean. Its setting is traditional with a very modern charm. We were very comfortable. In fact we stayed a second night. The property is centrally located and one can easily walk or ride a Muni or cable car from here to the popular attractions around town. Down side is the parking. The hotel doesn't... More

It's a great location. I've always been funny about staying at small property's. I've always been a girl to stay in a large company wide hotel like Marriott or the Hyatt. We took a quick trip for two days just to get away and it was perfect. It's nice and cleAn which some property's fail to do when they are... More

Easy access to/from airport via BART and next to Dragon gate and Union square. Lots of restaurants close by and a good base to explore the city. Room was basic but nice and clean. Rates competitive for SF in my opinion. Would consider to stay here if I was to visit SF again.

The Baldwin Hotel is in a very good location - just down the street from the Gate to China Town. We walked from the hotel to fisherman's wharf, down to Pier 39 and back up to Union Square. Lots of walking and we could have taken the trolley, but chose to walk. Very small, but adequate room. Be prepared for... More

This hotel is literally seconds walk from China Town in the Union Square district. Nice hotel but our neighbours had a squeaky door that disturbed us several times throughout the night. Parking is over a block away and $30 per day plus tax. No breakfast but Starbucks is only a couple of doors up. Trams were so busy so got... More

this is not a terrible choice. Yes, there is no air conditioning. Yes, if you leave your windows open for the breeze, you'll have to deal with the 3am trash pick up. But, the rate was exceptional for SNFC, the room was VERY clean and comfortable, and staff was very polite and cordial. I was there for one night, because... More

The Baldwin is a nice hotel in a good location (5 mins from Union Square). Our room was spacious and clean and perfect for somewhere to come back and put your feet up after exploring San Francisco. Large screen TV, desk, closest etc. all included. It has free WI-FI which is always great. Housekeeping makes a new animal everyday with... More

Pros: Location, location, location, excellent value for money, cleanliness, no bugs, pleasant staff, location, excellent value. Will return for sure! Cons: No black-out drapes, more sound-proofing on windows needed. Great, though, for people like us who are out & about all the time and only at the hotel to sleep. Location: NEAR EVERYTHING!!! Literally in the centre of the city... More

We spent 2 nights here while travelling the West coast and thought the Baldwin was ideal for what we wanted. The rooms are basic but very comfortable with a really good bathroom (we had a bath and shower), there is no aircon but we didn't feel we needed it with the cooler climate in SF and there was a ceiling...

I booked the Baldwin Hotel as an affordable choice in the central, downtown area of San Francisco. I was extremely impressed by the location - immediately near the main shopping part of the city, and really convenient for all main attractions, transport links. I'd say the location was ideal. The hotel had all the facilities you'd expect. I wouldn't say... More
