Loved my stay here. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. And I loved the little extra touches. Like chocolates on my bed, Keurig coffee makers, and free wifi. Even though the rooms were little small, they were quite nice and quaint. Plus great location for Union Square, and all kinds of city transportation. Only drawback, no parking.... More

We stayed during Labour day Weekend - it was very busy but the hotel was clean, spacious and very fresh. Great location too, close to trains and buses ect. Staff were friendly. My only negative is they charged us $80 a night for one night parking - but we did not have a choice due to Labour day weekend.

Cute little hotel, small but nice rooms and ideal location. Literally a few minutes walk from Powell Street train station. Right next to a shopping centre, 2 streets away from Dotties (great for breakfast!), and the Powell Street tram way and bus stops are just 2 minutes away. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the house keeping always did... More

I am actually still at the hotel. The room is small but very neat and pretty darn cute! The service has been wonderful! The maid staff is very friendly, especially Marie who is taking care of our room, and the front desk has been very helpful and kind. The bellhop brought all of our super heavy bags up to the... More

Stayed here for the proximity to the Moscone, which is a short walk away. The overall hotel is OK. It's an older property that was refurbished which was enticing when I booked. It looks like a lot of paint and tile was thrown up, but it wasn't really done well. The first room I checked into smelled like a junior-high... More

I was searching for a hotel that was well kept, friendly and close to everything well I found it in this hotel. Lisa was working the front desk that day and she went above and beyond for us, I had a rough day and right away she made me feel welcome and gave me an upgrade wow! I didn't even... More

I was looking for something close to the Moscone Center at a decent price and The Pickwick Hotel was perfect. The Powell BART station is just a block away so it was easy to take the train to/from the airport. The hotel is an easy walk to Moscone as well as Union Square so lots of access to shopping and...

A fairly basic central older style city hotel with a large firmish bed in a fairly small room. The noise from the street was not too bad although the rubbish trucks and street sweepers provided a brief wake up at around 3am. Good wi-fi connection in the room. The best feature was the proximity to the city transport system (near... More

Good: great staff, very helpful, small feeling, not "busy", safe feeling, good location. Bad: room smelled badly when entering (like a sewer), rickety feeling bed, doors etc. Outside air-co is so loud that there is a constant buzz in the room (and is asked for a quiet room). No breakfast on-sure (staff directed me to Mel's)
