We booked this hotel on the strength of it being cheap and the photos looked nice......DONT be fooled by the pictures. The hotel had a strange smell (probably unclean) throughout but especially in the bathrooms and the bedroom smelt musty. The reception area was dingy with broken vending machines and an urn of coffee which didn't look appealing . We... More

My cousin & I just stayed here this past weekend for a concert. It's technically a hostel but most of the rooms are standard double beds with shared bathrooms/showers (made for 2 people at most), which isn't too bad either. All the rooms have a sink in them too. Bed was comfortable and it was a good place to stay... More

I booked this hotel based on price. The location doesn't scare me. I walk around skid row in Los Angeles. I called hotel asking about there house rules and check in policies. I was told that if I wanted to have a visitor in my room I would have to pay $30.00 and that every time that I leave the... More

In the price range same as this hotel, choose anything else except this hotel. NEVER STAY HERE untill and unless this is a dire need and absolutely unavoidable. Reasons: 1. very unsafe location, though your would read that its on Market street blah blah blah, this is true it is close to shopping area and not that far from Moscone... More

I needed to make a last minute trip to San Francisco and really didn't have a lot of money to spend. Thus, I found myself choosing between a few very inexpensive hotels and becoming increasingly worried about where I was going to find myself. When I arrived at Aida I'll admit it was relatively unlike any other hotel I have... More

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.
