This is a great old-style, classic two-star European hotel, which is to say no amenities such as room service, bar, restaurant, bell hops. No air conditioning. Excellently clean rooms of a good size (not cramped), minimal but functional furnishings, good baths (with tubs), some rooms with sinks outside bathrooms, refrigerator, irons and ironing boards in some rooms, safes, free WiFi....

I'm not sure why this hotel only gets two stars, but my family and I were very happy with our stay. The front desk people are very nice and helpful. My experience in hotels is that there might be one particular person who is very customer service oriented but this hotel has several staff who were that way. The hotel... More

After reading mixed reviews, and having trouble communicating with front desk (English a second language), we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. All the paperwork was in order. Our requested quiet room was so quiet that we heard nothing for 4 nights. The location was excellent and the price affordable. Room clean and tidy and serviced daily. Bed comfy. Dispensers... More

WE stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Its clean, safe and very central for exploring S/F. You get coffee and Danish for breakfast which was good, theres free wifi and computer access. 24 hour reception desk all for a bargain price. Sure the corridor smells a little strange and the view from the window isn`t great, but most older places... More

Top marks for location as this is a central place to be in the city and you can walk to almost all the in town attractions. Rooms are decent size but a bit sparse, you have two closets ( well I did ) and two night tables with a drawer in each one, small desk and a small old T.V.... More

I gave two stars because of the location, ok breakfast and free wifi. We stayed in this hotel for 6 days but what bothered me is the smell not only in our room but in the lobby as well. You will smell it (like pee) the moment you open the front door. It is worst in our room. I was... More

If you are looking for the luxury experience, this may not be the place for you. However, for this stay I had a few essential requirements: 1) clean 2) near transit 3) quiet. I managed to get all three and pastries for breakfast everyday. Rooms are very nice and honestly it is larger than the bedroom in my apartment. The... More

My husband and I stayed here to check out San Francisco. We chose The Grant Hotel because previous reviews raved about the location and let me tell you, it really is a great location, and for the low price you cant get much better than that. It's very basic but has a clean room, shower and pasteries/coffee in the morning.... More

This is a very well located hotel. That´s for sure a good point about it. The bad ones, though, are - VERY old, rooms are small. Carpets in need of replacement. Bathrooms look new, surely they got some upgrade done recently, they don´t even match the room. Parking is charged extra, but it is in a fair walking distance, considering... More
