I accept this is a 2* hotel a reasonable price and a great location but we were disappointed. Reception was not v professional, likeable but seemed inexperienced. We had got used to large beds in USA so the standard double(although looked small) was not very appealing especially as it was against a wall so we could only get in on... More

I stayed at the Baldwin Hotel for the 2nd time this year while in San Francisco on business. I travel a lot, including abroad and find it refreshing to have the opportunity to stay in a quiet boutique type hotel. This hotel is excellent for the non-pretentious travel who is looking for clean accommodations in a safe area. My co-workers... More

So, I REALLY want to give this place 4 stars, but I didn't have a great night. The location is very central. The staff were really nice. The room was a good size, clean with new fixtures and furniture. The bathroom is small, but was just fine for me. I agree with another reviewer that it would be nice to... More

Hotel is very well located, steps from Chinatown and a short walk to Union Square. BART and Muni connections are also near. Rooms are large, clean, and staff pleasant and helpful. Price point makes this an exceptional value.

Really enjoyed my four nights here. I was on an upper floor, had corner room, which meant a cross-breeze through windows on two sides, plus ceiling fan helped. Comfortable, clean, tidy, a really good base for the city, at a reasonable rate. Free Wifi worked well. Easy couple of blocks to Union Square, MUNI, BART, Financial District etc. As a... More

I was in San Francisco for a 2 day business trip. My meetings were at 235 Montgomery Street. I looked for a hotel near that address and found the Baldwin. It was the perfect location. I was only 3 blocks from my meetings and also only a few blocks away from Union Square. There are numerous places to eat and... More

Good experience staying at this hotel. Best rate for downtown. Room was clean and comfortable. Everything works ok. Free wi-fi. Complimentary coffee in the lobby. Good location, a few steps to Chinatown, Union Square, Market St. and good access to many public transport. Not a noisy street so you can sleep well at night. French restaurants around and many coffee... More
