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

I stayed here for 3 nights together with my girlfriend. We arrived late but found the staff very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable with views overlooking the city centre. The hotel was in an excellent location, a short walk away from San Francisco's vast Chinatown and union square. There were some nice little touches... More

We had a 7 night stay booked at this hotel. Location seemed good and reviews also seemed good. Price was competitive. However, we checked in and 5 minutes later we were checking out. Staff did not seem surprised that we were checking out so soon. Heres why - the front desk was a pig sty. Junk everywhere and smelt of... More

I really liked this place for the price. Very comfy and a great location in union square. It is a little noisy outside being in central San fran. I brought ear plugs so when i heard the street cleaners at 4am I popped them in and slept soundly. Hotel is very basic but for the price and location you have... More
