Small comfortable rooms with the amenities needed for an overnight. I've stayed there 4 times now and found it to be quiet with a comfortable bed and adequate bath. Once their must've been some convention guests who were way too loud but this seems to be the exception.

A basic and slightly worn hotel, but clean, quiet, and centrally located. Very reasonable, staff OK. I have no complaints, even though there was nothing special either. I recommend this for budget business travelers.

Good sized, clean room. Very central location, handy for all forms of muni transport or just walking into the heart of the city. Friendly staff and I loved the towel animals! Good places nearby for breakfast are sears diner and TADS steakhouse.

We booked this hotel because of the reviews I've read here on Tripadvisor but I must say that I have no idea about what the good reviews are talking about. First, we had booked a double room but they were out of them so they put me and my colleague in a room with a single bed. Well at least... More

This hotel has very mixed reviews, but we found that for three nights, it worked out perfectly. It is an older hotel, with high ceilings, steam radiators, and a tiny little elevator - very city-ish. The rooms were very clean and the (apparently) new double pane windows seal out the city noise quite well. We had the window open at... More

We had a great stay in the Baldwin. The location was perfect right beside Chinatown and walking distance to Union square. The HOHO bus stops right outside the hotel too. Noise wasn't an issue for us even if we did hear trucks etc but made us get up and get on with our holiday. Staff very friendly too keep up... More

This is the most noisy hotel ever!!!!! I was in room 1203 on the real first floor: simply impossible to sleep. It has windows not on one, but on two noisy streets. Plus curtains poorly cover the windows and street lights reverberate inside the room at night. Very small room and bathroom. Cold bedroom. No service. If you lose the... More

This is an old hotel that tried to "refurb" but stopped short in many ways.... rooms are clean, but windows aren't well covered (no sleeping in here), ice on main floor only, elevator is stinky and many, many years old.... 2stars at best!

Good hotel, spacious rooms, close to Market St, good value, good service. Wifi is free. There was no breakfast and it smelled like food downstairs most of the time. Definitely a good choice near Unnion Sq.

My friend and I recently stayed here for 8 nights. It is kind of a French boutique style hotel in the heart of San Francisco. The room was fairly comfortable, clean and very spacious, however the towels were on their last threads. Its location is great, just a 3 minute walk to Market street (so it was great for transport...
