The first thing you notice when you walk into this "hotel" is the smell of faeces, sweat and Asian food combined. The majority of the staff are clueless and unfriendly. Our room was very dirty with chips and biscuit crumbs on seats. However this wasn't so much of a concern for us as much as the moulded tiles and shower... More

Booked a room with Mithilda - the hotel has a strange layout. As our rooms was not ensuite, we had to walk to the end of the building just to use the bathroom and shower. Shower was a small cubicle that is really small and you can't really hang your stuff anywhere so usually it gets wet. Room itself is... More

We stayed here for a few nights. The location was perfect in terms of restaurants and location to union square. The room had everything we needed, toiletries were supplied, the wifi was really good and the towels were replaced daily. We arrived at 1pm and were given early check in with no hassle too, which was great! In saying this,... More

The Mithila was undergoing some work, but was more than adequate for our needs. It was clean, and the staff was amicable, the room was quaint, and the location was great for our quick trip for a nearby concert.

This hotel could be so much better if the owners put some money into it. It has so much potential, but it is the crappiest hotel in which I have ever stayed. The pictures posted of the hotel look better than the actual place itself. The mattresses were old and very uncomfortable. The furniture in our room was scratched up,... More

Its a small hotel with loads of, lets say "charm". If its your first visit to frisco and are not really sure where to stay or are unfamiliar with the lay of the land; stay here for a night or two on the cheap so one can scope out different areas and hotels and what not. having said that, Hotel...

The hotel itself is incredibly drab and corridors are so narrow it is damn near impossible to manoeuvre luggage, which we had to do a lot of to check in and out of rooms during our stay. The rooms were tiny, with a 3 bed being the exact same size as double. Whilst not all staff were bad, some were... More

We booked a room and submitted a request to have a pull out bed 2 months before arriving. The day we got there, we were greeted (if you can even call it that) by the most rude and horrible front desk staff that basically told us there was no room anywhere for us to have a pull out bed. They... More

- Their website is sort of misleading, it made the front of the hotel look glamorous and much bigger then it actually is. In fact, we almost missed it! - The elevator/lift was a bit dodgy, and we didn't want to use it in case it got stuck, plus they were painting it the day we arrived, meaning we had... More

The reason why I booked this was because of the price. Less than a $100 and it was close enough to Union Square so that I could walk there. I live in SF so I didn't feel like paying more money to stay in the city that I live in. What I wanted to do was spend a nice night... More
