Well I'm not sure where to start. We had a long drive before arriving in San Fran and I was very dubious regarding the accommodation once we we're let into the lobby area. Like other reviews have mentioned you do have to press a door bell, then you are buzzed in, at 1st I thought it was a bit of... More

I stayed at this hotel last July for 3 days.The hotel is run by a family from India. The price for a room in July was $ 110 a night but still was not worth it. The hotel ( I would not even call this a hotel) was old, dirty and had a stink of rotten food or God knows... More

This is a budget hotel. But compared to the hugely expensive other hotels in San Francisco, the Taylor hotel was fantastic value. The rooms are old but clean, with private bathrooms and perfectly adequate hot water. Honestly, for a hotel with these prices, what more could you ask for! And its in a great location. The curtains were thin so... More

Really enjoyed. It's clean. Does not smell weird. Good shower pressure. Awesome location. Mini fridge + TV. Clean linens. Good security. Felt comfortable in the neighbourhood. No plug in the BR, so just bring an extension cord to do your hair in the mirror (an easy fix). Lots of space. Stayed in both the 2 bed and 1 bed rooms.... More

The hotel is located in the heart of san francisco's downtown, you can even walk to market street where all the shops and restaurants are. When you first arrive in front if the hotel you get kind of scary from the building, really old and poor maintained. You get into it and the lady is waiting for you in a... More

I am no diva and can rough out a bad hotel. But this is over the top. Stayed there for four days. Here's my experience: You must be buzzed in everytime you want into the hotel. PAIN. Elevator does not work. Steep staircase, just great with big luggage. Not. The place reeks of Indian seasonings 24/7. My room: carpet so... More

I read the negative reviews before I stayed here. I stayed here for a week. I was a tourist from Australia. I find it hard to understand the negative reviews below. Some of the reviews are very bad for this place, and I cannot understand why. Maybe these people were expecting the Hilton for 60 bucks a night. San Francisco,... More

The worst hotel I have ever been. We booked a room for three night, but when we arrived they told us there weren't free room for the first night, so they send us to another hotel, in a disreputable quarter, where we were really afraid of the people in the streets. Then we returned to the Taylor hotel: the room... More
