This is a nice place to stay in San Francisco. It is close to the trams and one of the hop on hop off bus stops. The host was welcoming and help showing us the way around the town with a good map. The room was lovely with a windows that opened to let the fresh air in and the... More

Hotel in downtown quite close to cable car and a Union Square. 10 mins walk to China Town and Union Square, and half an hour walk to Fisherman Wharf. Facilities are basic yet sufficient. Bathroom obviously renovated with new tiles. Need to request for hair dryer. Breakfast is quite basic with bread, pastries, cereals, yogurt, boiled eggs, coffee, juice. Our... More

Trip Advisor helped me to find this hotel- and it was every bit as good as advertised. The staff went way beyond the extra mile and made us feel at home. They were very kind and knew the city very well with excellent suggestions for our trip. It was a good location and a great bargain. I would stay there... More

Took me a year to write this as wanted to keep the place secret. If you are coming to town and intend to spend most of your time out of the room touring, this is the place. Old school hotel with quirky elevator adds to the charm. Could use some updating but don't even notice while sleeping. Received a large... More

Our family (3 adults, 2 teens) stayed for 4 nights in July. Check in was easy- they were prepared for us and we had no problems. We started by riding the old fashioned elevators up to the 4th floor and found that to be an experience in and of itself! We had 2 rooms for the 5 of us. Both... More

We used Trip Advisor to find this quaint hotel. We needed value for four nights. Check. We needed location close to transportation. check. Cable cars. California line to the F line at Market Street was a great way to get to the piers without standing in line. Close to Chinatown. Check. Nice staff. Check. Free parking for a tiny car...only... More

We appreciate value and this place is reasonable, clean, slightly eclectic, a little dated yet convenient. Breakfast is ok. Location is convenient and although the accommodations are not modern or cool, yet we were not inconvenienced for anything. Truly love this place. This was our second visit here and we will definitely go back again.

Mayflower is a true find: its location is perfect to explore downtown San Francisco and beyond (it's right in the middle of the city, so from there you can head to any direction on the map); the rooms are spacious and comfortable, with great closets, kitchens (with silverware, plates etc.) and even nice amenities (try the body lotion). The building... More

We stayed here in the third week of June for three nights - the beginning of a two week holiday to California. The rooms were very clean and spacious - with kitchen facilities and a walk in dressing room/ closet. The hotel was built in the 1920s and retains a period charm - the hotel lobby is particularly attractive. The... More
