Don't do it. Run for your life! Filthy, dried blood on the nightstand, mold in the bathroom. Springs popping up out of the mattress. I couldn't bring myself to stay there on my two night visit to San Francisco and they kept one whole nights rate for a cancellation fee after I told them I was canceling. I should have... More

Hi , I had spent a couple of days here at mithila, SFO , 2weeks ahead. I agree with the other reviews here , which doesn't seem really appealing. But the best thing about this place is the location. It's situated right at sutter street, which is extremely close to union square and China town and other attractions. And if... More

Hotel Mithila is a rundown and dirty building, with a bad smell and feels extremely unsafe. The customer service is appalling. We prepaid 4 nights through a travel agent, and on arrival there was "no record" of our payment, despite showing them the booking receipt and we were told we needed to pay again. The receptionist and manager were extremely... More

Their customer service is terrible. The staff refuses to take responsibility and there is no way to get your issue resolved with a supervisor/manager. The room was dirty. I've stayed at many hotels across the country and I must say that this one was the worst I've ever stayed at. I would not recommend this hotel to my friends/family. Please... More

We stayed here as we were on a budget and this seemed to fit the bill. However it is not a pleasant place to stay, doesn't look or smell like it has been cleaned in a long time. The sheets were filthy, blind was broken so couldn't close it and that was also filthy. I have never slept in a... More

We got very good price when booking in advance. We stayed during the week and after a long travel around California we came back. For the weekend was a bit more expensive but worthy as we didn't spend extra money on commuting. Is close to walk to the main SFO places, as long you like to walk through SF hills.... More

This hotel gets an average rating because it is an older building with small rooms and it isn't luxury. However, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, walking distance to cable car on Hyde or Powell, the BART, several restaurants and on bus routes to Union Square or other landmarks. If you want luxury, don't book...

It is in an awesome location and the staff is very helpful. Check-in/out process is easy and the rooms are clean... but tiny and fairly simple. Which is what you should expect unless you wanna pay double the price.

If you don't have high expectations, this place is fine, been in a super expensive city as San Francisco, finding this hotel saved my life. It is true that it's an old building, with an elevator that reminds me an old horror movie, but to be honest, I enjoyed it every time. The location couldn't be better, there is a... More
