We are travelling on a budget and this was the cheapest SF hotel we could find that didn't have awful reviews. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom which was small but comfortable and clean and seemed to be recently renovated. However, we were at the end of a corridor with three other rooms also clustered at the... More

Hi, I just stayed here & it is one of the worst hotels I've stayed in, the noise at night is awful from other guests you can hear everything, there is no bathroomin the rooms you have a communal one and shower also, I would Defo not recommend.

Sorry that you felt the way you did. You booked a room for 2 people with a shared bath at $75 per night. I wish you let us know upon arrival that you did not realize that the room you booked was a room with a shared bathroom. We could have moved you to a room with a private bath... More

In a city that is expensive for hotel rooms downtown the Luz is a gem. Good value for money, friendly staff and great location just a few blocks from Union Square. Sure there are a few homeless people doing it tough on the street outside, but they are not threatening and remind you how lucky you are to be able... More

Myself and my partner stayed here, when we arrived we were questioning it by judging outside but once we got inside it was lovely, comfortable beds, staff so nice, didn't like the idea of shower and toilet outside the room you had to walk down hall to go to it, open shower for both male and Female same goes for...

The staff members were great, especially Ver & Pia; they even gave me an upgrade. Rooms were clean and tasteful, beds were very comfortable. Location was central, a few minutes walk to Union square. Would stay here again and recommend to my friends!

Chose this place as one of the most central, budget places with good reviews. Was not expecting luxury but was a little apprehensive on arrival at reception as it all looked very dated. However, shouldn't judge on first impressions - room was lovely, quirky, clean. Shared bathrooms also clean & always available, only complaint was the shower was cold each... More

Thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry that you had to shower with cold water. It takes awhile for water to get hot especially if you were the first to use in the morning. We will put a note in each room that shower may take a couple of minutes to get hot. We appreciate and welcome your review... More

We spent three nights here. The hotel locates on Geary Street, just around 10-minute walk to Union Square, 20 to 30-minute walk to Chinatown, and 40-minute walk to Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf. The area look scary for me in the very beginning but it's safe, just like general downtown areas. I booked the room with a shared bathroom on Priceline and... More

Thank you so much for staying with us. There was actually a parking place half a block from the hotel for $30/night. Sorry that you had to pay that much. Oh, I know, the hot water thing. We actually put a 5 gallon water heater close to the shower so you guest have instant hot water but after 5 gallon... More

This small boutique hotel dates from 1907, it is quite charming and centrally located in downtown SF! The room is simple and elegant with vintage style, the washroom and shower are separate - though not a concern since being a budget conscious property. The staff here are helpful and understanding. There are many interesting dining options in the area, so... More

We loved the Luz, because it's DIFFERENT!!!! The rooms are furnished vintage style, yet clean and cozy. The Location is super central, everything can be reached by foot or you can hop on the bus which stops right across the street. But the best by far: The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, making you feel right at home! We... More

If you are low maintenance and don't require a lot of pampering, this is the place for you. If you are high maintenance and going to look for things to complain about, stay away. The people are very friendly; you get the feeling that it is a community. It is truly a real hotel California, as in the eagles version... More
