This hotel is perfect for people who just need a bed to sleep on and a bathroom. The Rooms are smallish but they are okay. Communal Bathrooms which I dont personally have a problem with. Perfect for people who want to spend there whole day outside exploring and just need a bed to crash on. You get what you pay... More

The hotel is centrally located and they have 24 hours concierge. The room is basic with desk, CRT 14 inch TV, microwave and fridge. Wifi connection is fast, they also have laundry service and vendo machine. The shared toilet & shower are relatively clean. However, the hotel needs repairs and upgrading. Like the carpet, pretty worn out and a bit... More

This place exceeded all my expectations and turned out to be an excellent base for our 4 Days in San Francisco. It was secure and clean, well maintained and respectable, and there was something quite comforting about its old world feel. The room had a desk, fridge, microwave and tv, a very comfortable mattress and very good wifi . It... More

We stayed here for one night just to head out early next morning to Pier 39, for that this hotel succeeded. Upon check-in, the lady at the front desk was very short with me, would give me something to sign, then when I was half way through signing it she'd shove another piece of paper on top of what I...

I visited San Francisco for 8 days with my daughter to take in the sites and 49ers game. I see there are mixed reviews on here about this hotel, so let me start by saying it's not posh ! If you looking for marble floors and doormen in suits and hats forget it ! What it is though is good... More

Hi all, I don't know what's going on in SF Accom. market... But this premise should be put under monitoring...long winding check process, Although having reserved way upfront. Really small rooms (batteries). Second floor all shared rest and bathrooms were "stuffed" and 1 day also all showers out of service the same time. I would strongly recommend to stay here... More

The number of adverse feedbacks for this hotel do not do it justice. What you get at the North Beach is a typical American "Rooming Hotel". The majority of guests and long term using the hotel as either a Mon-Fri residence while working in the city and returning to their homes at weekend - the rest of the guests are... More

Please do not stay at this hotel, I walked in, first impressions were okay, staff lack basic customer service, when I got to the room, what I can only describe as absolutely appalling, I wouldn't even let my worst enemy stay there, it was dark, dirty and most of all horrific, I had to book another hotel right away.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
