This hotel taught me so much about the importance of research. We went on a whim. Booked 2 days prior. Saw a good price and clicked buy. When you drive up, you immediately know that you are not going to walk anywhere in this part of town. Then you walk in the door and you say to yourself "what the... More

I typically do not write online reviews but I've never had an experience as bad as this one so I felt like I had just had to leave feedback. Whatever you do, DO NOT STAY HERE. The cost was so high for such a dump. The place is a total dive. The area is pretty bad. There is no place... More

This budget hotel was great. It had everything I was looking for: Right next to BART and MUNI stations, close to museums, elevator, very clean, spacious room, free tea and coffee, ATM in lobby, and the front desk was extremely helpful. The lady booked an airport shuttle for me which was nice. I will definitely stay again.

I have to say that this wouldn't have been the area I would've selected to stay in a hotel, but I get what I got. Aida is old & has that old smell to it, but it was built in 1912. They cannot change to make the hotel look like new because it is a Historical Landmark. Very ornate in... More

Reasonable price (by San Francisco standard) but the hotel does not have parking. I ended up leaving my car in a parking structure that cost $46 per night (several choices nearby, average $35-$55 per 24 hour). Coffee and tea available all day long. Drug stores and fast food restaurants all around. Unfortunately, many many homeless people loitering day and night.

The good news: a block from the BART Central Plaza station, 20 minute walk to Moscone. The average news: the beds are not bad, there's good pressured hot water and they have towels. The bad news is there is no AC or fan (to drown out the Market Street sounds), no desk, table or counter (where do you put you... More

The location is great, the price is lower than on average for San-Francisco. On the other hand the rooms are not very clean and there is a strong smell of dust. Plus one can here everything what happens in the neighboring room ...

But everything else is not I'm afraid. The room is small, the shared bathroom is also small. The area of the hotel might not be safe late at night but the tramp stops right in front of the hotel which is extremely convenient.

Looking for a hotel in the area we wished to stay proved to be hard to come by and also very expensive. For the price we paid, we felt this hotel provided value for cost. Upon reading other negative reviews we feel we must add our positive opinion. There are a few things paid accommodation must supply: A descent bed,... More

After reading some of the online reviews of this place, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed here recently. Yes, it is an older property, and yes, it is on Market Street in the less desirable Tenderloin area of San Francisco, but the hotel is extremely clean, and the staff is very nice.... More
