As a person who has stayed in many fine hotels we found this little bed and breakfast to be outstanding. Run by a French lady, it maintains a charming European air. Although not beautifully decorated with the finest linens. It is cleaner than many 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable creating a warm... More

I was looking for a reasonable hotel in San Fransisco and stumbled onto this gem... The place is clean, the staff is very pleasant and good humored. If you don't mind sharing the shower and bathroom with the people on the same floor, this is a real find! By the way, the corridor is very quiet, this makes for a... More

I had a pleasant four-night-stay for my fist time in SF. The neighbourhood is great, not touristy but with loads of nice restaurants, cafes and independent boutique shops. The location is not cental central but I wasn't bothered since having a friend drove me around. It wasn't hard to find park space on the streets either. I loved the interior,... More

Found out through a recommendation from a good friend. Considering the amenities and location, a night at the Hayes Valley Inn is a blessed bargain. They probably could be charging 20 percent more, but one gets the good vibe that their business plan depends on old fashioned hospitality and word of mouth. The staff is meticulously knowledgeable about the neighborhood.... More

Friendly staff, great location & competitive rates - you could do a lot worse! We were a little sceptical about staying outside of the main tourist areas but Hayes Valley was awesome and I'd stay in this neighbourhood again. More bars and restaurants than you can possibly visit in a week and all good quality. Some great craft beer house... More

We know SF well, and decided to stay here for two reasons: price and location. We had no illusions about the European style, and it is exactly as advertised. Smallish queen bed room, toilet and bath across the hall (generally clean and available), traffic noise, and the restaurant/bars dumping their recyclables after midnight. That said, the price is fantastic, the... More

Stayed here for five nights, I cannot fault the location or the hotel. The Hotel team were friendly and helpful, Rooms were small with bed, Sink, Wardrobe and set of drawers. Didn't have any issues with the shared bathroom. The breakfast room was a great place to meet other travellers, had a bit of a laugh at breakfast but also... More

If you are seeking affordable accommodations in a fantastic neighborhood of great restaurants, this is it! Accommodations are simple. I had one of the smaller rooms, with a bed and a sink. Shared bathroom is down the hall, but I rarely had to wait more than a minute or two. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great, from the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We loved it so much, we cancelled our hotel reservation for the last two nights across town to continue our stay here. Why we loved it: - The staff (hi Dennis!) could not have been more friendly with directions, airport shuttles, travel tips. - the free breakfast and afternoon tea are... More
