This is rather a dated hotel - in need of some renovation. Our room was on the 3rd floor. Yes it was overlooking the main road below with the associated noise - but we found that rather comforting! There seemed to be more noise coming from the fridge in the room - which was rather loud. The air condition was... More

We stayed there for 3 nights, and felt the room was adequate for the price & location. We did ask for our rooms to be on the higher floors, to give some distance from the street activitiy. Room wasn't huge, but it was clean and comfortable. Close to great shopping, good food and easy to get to other areas if... More

Stayed at the hotel for a week. Loved the people here and the room was perfect for me. They have character, an ideal location, and comfortable accommodations. Ate at the restaurant downstairs one night and they were also super friendly and I had a very nice meal. There are a million restaurant an shopping option in the area of course.

Location was good and easy to get to from the airport via the train. Room was a good size and the bed was comfy, bathroom was a little dated but functioned well. Tube stop and trams very near, a few cafes and bars near by. Would stay here again if at the right price,.

Walking distance to every must do location- union square,nob hill,Alamo square, ferry building and fisher mans wharf. The cafe venue a few doors up was good... More

A smaller hotel this place is in a great location very close to the BART. Easy to get to, easy to get around. The rooms were a decent size with a comfy king-size bed. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff were helpful, good breakfast place on one side and a good pub on the other. It also backs on to a large... More

I attended a conference recently at the Marriott Marquis around the block but was unwilling to pay the high prices due to my late entry. The Pickwick was extremely close and actually ended up closer to our evening locations than the Marquis. The rooms were small but cozy. They had just been renovated and due to price break, I selected... More

As most reviewers note, the hotel is old. However, it adds to the character of the place. Our room was tastefully decorated and most importantly, clean. Close to the heart of Union square, shops, restaurants, and public transportation are all within walking distance. We did bring our car and availed of the basement parking. While the parking was pricey, I... More
