We stayed at The Metro Hotel for one night whilst passing through San Francisco. Simple, stylish and excellent value for money. We had room 110 which I would recommend even if you don't need the additional bed in the separate room as this room was much bigger than the rooms occupied by other people in our party. Even though the... More

We choose the Metro for it's affordable nightly price and location outside of normal tourist track, in an attempt to experience the city as close to an actual resident would as possible for the two days we would be in the city. Upon arrival, around noon on June 29th, we spoke with Shana at the front desk/window and she informed... More

The Metro is intimate, and the perfect place to stay if you want to be away from the tourist crowds. We got up each morning and ran in Golden Gate Park (it's that close), and stopped on the way back at a fabulous local bakery for a couple of coffees. We walked to Haight-Ashbury (twice, b/c it's that close, too!),... More

The hotel was nothing special but was perfect for the low price! It was in a great location to get to Haight-Ashbury, golden gate park, Alamo square, the Fillmore, and bars for late night fun. The room is little, but we didn't spend much time in it, so it worked fine. My only complain was stained sheets/blanket. They looked and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. It's a perfect oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds around Fisherman's Wharf and downtown. Easy access to downtown, the Castro, Haight Ashbury. The room is small, with a small bathroom with shower only, but very very clean. Very cheerful and helpful staff. Wonderful garden in the... More

Very good value for money. My friends complained their rooms were too small however I had the "godfather room" complete with giant horse head on the wall and I was quite happy with my room. Hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly. Hotel in a great spot to check out all the San Fran sights, Haight district small walk away... More

I call myself SF Exile for a reason. My job prevents me from living in my beloved home town. Trips back to visit friends and family make this situation bearable, as does staying at the Metro. Many things about the Metro have been upgraded since my last review. It's nicely decorated and more comfortable than ever. It continues to exemplify... More

San Francisco was mine and my friends last stop on a 14 day road trip around the center of California - The Metro Hotel was delicately chosen a year prior after reading several reviews and making sure it was in a good location. We were SO pleasantly surprised!! The front desk was SO helpful, it was so clean and comfortable,... More

What a little gem the Metro is! It's within walking distance to Haight/Ashbury and GG Park. We followed the advice of another Tripadvisor user and stayed in a room at the back of the hotel, which was said to be quieter than the rooms on the front of the hotel. There is a restaraunt next door that uses the patio... More

We grabbed a room here for a one night stay because all of out other favorite places were booked. What a great surprise! For under $150 we had our own little studio apartment with a private entrance. I almost don't want to review it, because I want to keep it all to myself. We arrived late afternoon on Sunday and... More
