Oh, we just loved this place. It's old but you can tell it was once quite grand and the current owner(s) are clearly giving it a lot of TLC. The front staff is casual, friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice sized with a little kitchenette--microwave, fridge and dishes. It was quiet and we could open the windows, as we... More

I went to San Francisco for a special Birthday trip. Alone, but willing to be in an old hotel where the style of the place was more local, old lifts with grills which I had to master, wall paintings which explained the history of the place and a car park where the small car my friend brought just about fitted,...

Only stayed 1 night unfortunately but this was a great place to stay. Room was rather spacious with a small kitchenette & a large area for bag storage. The lift was very old style with a pull open walk in door and cage that you slide across and very very small. the room did not have any air conditioning only... More

Stayed at the Mayflower for 3 nights. When we checked in, we were 'greeted' by a young fellow who seemed like he would rather not be there. Gave us our keys and pointed to the lift. Well this lift is not just a push button and wait - luckily another guest gave us a lesson on how to use it.... More

SHHH. This is the best deal in SF. The room prices are very ggod and you get free parking in a city (and neighborhood) where parking is $30-$50/ day. You are in Union Square and Nob Hill. Several restaurants and Chinatown in walking distance. The Hotel is what can be called Tourist class. It's independent with a laid back personality... More

It says Wi-Fi available, maybe there one, but very slow. Till we connected with cable to the wall outlet we could not get to search engine for few minutes. Hotel is very... More

Hotel is walking distance ( with quite steep hills) from Powell Street / Market Street intersection. This is where you would disembark if travelling from San Francisco airport via BART ( cost of travel was approx $9 from airport). So you would just walk up Powell Street and left into Bush Street - no complications. Considering that this hotel is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of this dear old hotel in the heart of San Francisco. The staff were accommodating but not pushy. The room with double glazed windows was comfortable and roomy. The hills were a challenge and the spacious off street garage parking access is not suitable for full sized cars. But the nearby restaurants gave plenty of... More
