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

I was there for two days from the 12th to 14 March 2015. The place is 5 min walk to Union square. Is relatively safe and quite. I would recommedn it for single who want to have fun but not for acouple or someone with a Girl. The rooms are ok but for a woman am not sure. Plus you... More

I stayed at the Mithila on a business trip to San Francisco in January 2015, a week when a major conference had all the well-known, over-priced hotels anywhere near Union Square booked solid and even more over-priced (by two to three times what they are actually worth). I discovered the Mithila by expanding my search a few blocks (it's about... More

We, a family of two adults and two children, stayed at Mithila Hotel in December 2014 - January 2015. The best things that we liked about it are its good location (10 minute walk to Union Square) and relatively cheap price (four family members shared a double bed and two bunker beds for US$ 132 per night, including taxes). The... More

Mithila is truly your home away from home- if you usually reside in a crack den! San Francisco was our last stop having travelled to four other cities around the US and staying in four well priced but lovely hotels we thought would give somewhere on the "cheaper" side a go (cheaper being nearly $700 for four nights)- what a...
