This hotel was exactly what we were looking for - a clean hotel in downtown S.F. with affordable pricing. Yes, it's not in the nicest area of San Francisco (Tenderloin), but it was fine for 2 nights there. The hotel looked like it had recently been re-done, and was trendy. The bathroom was a little small, but it worked out... More

Decent hotel. We got a corporate rate through some work so our rates were reasonable. The bathroom was tiny. Teeny tiny. But everything else was okay. We got an inner room around the courtyard, thinking this would be great however, request otherwise if possible. The noise from other people in their rooms was horrible (we had our windows open as...

Great for our recent trip to San Francisco. A nice touch of style inside for a well priced hotel. Staff very helpful, airport transfers available at a good rate. Close to Union Square which is great for shopping and tour bus connections.

Mark Twain was a nice theme of a hotel, but it was located in a part of town that while close to Union Square, was also close to homeless yelling at each other all night.The hotel was nice due to its design and decoration. It gives a resemblance of the 1920's times and it's located in downtown San Francisco. This... More

A good location for anyone spending time in and around Union Square. We spent a night and found the room to be quiet, comfortable and noise free. With multiple options to dine around in the evening, I would prefer such a place over some of its star cousins who are not worth the price

Is a nice hotel, well located for visiting Union Square (shopping area, restaurants, Cable Car line, Chinatown) area. Elevator is very small, no air conditioned on rooms (meaning that you need to request a room away from the street). I suggest to do not walk to the south and southwest of the hotel specially at night (lot of homeless and... More

This is a nice place to stay for the weekend. Not a hotel I would stay for more than 3 days. It's on good location. I read that it's in a sketchy area. I'll tell you that I got that feeling arriving at midnight on a Friday night. But that quickly changed while walking around for a bit. It's right... More

Hotel location was very good and we could walk to Moscone Center where our trade show was at. Good restaurants around the area and very easy access so BART stations. Very friendly employees, specially Kemel with a smile on his face every time.

The rooms are compact but beautifully decorated, the bathrooms are kept clean but needs further updating as it has rather thin walls and can hear your neighbours in their bathroom. The hotel is also fair distance from the sights.

Mark Twain was a nice theme of a hotel, but it was located in a part of town that while close to Union Square, was also close to the hobos who scream at each other all night-so if you are a light sleeper-rethink this hotel-the hobos also line up to sleep on the sidewalk of the hotel.
