Nothing bad to say about this Hotel. Price seems in line with location, which is less than 2 blocks from Union Square. Rooms are clean. Finally no carpet but woody floor. Either we were lucky or every room is not noisy. In the hall you could hear loud tv from neighbours but in the room nothing. Finally a fan on... More

The lobby is small with old furniture and carpet. Behind the desk you will find a 24 hour reception, video survailance monitors and printed out notes saying stuff like "ALL ROOMS MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE". The elevator is so old that it is actually pretty cool. You will find some guests on this hotel that do not look like... More

I can't believe I was suckered into paying so much for this place. I thought I'd pay more since other cheaper hotels in SF had not been great, and this place was still more expensive while supposedly on sale - I had to pay in advance. It seems people live there, likely low-rent with shared bathrooms. "Hotel" room had its... More

The Post Hotel was a great find. The service was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The only complaint was that there were no personal showers/bathrooms. Overall it was a good experience and the value was great for the price.
