at first it caused us a bad impression, looked very dated but the location is very good. We decided to try one night. The next day we woke up well rested, went down to breakfast something light because it does not offer a lush buffet, but we saw that the attention was very nice and the place was clean. We... More

I have stayed at this hotel in both visits. It is a cozy little hotel in the middle of San Francisco. Room: Good bed, TV, spacious for 2 persons. I can't take cold, so heater could be stronger :) It took us sometime to locate the built-in heater, lol. Neighbourhood: Relatively quiet, with occasional siren from a distant hospital. Price:...

Close to Union Square thus hotel is great value for money. Rooms are big and have a fridge and microwave as well as a walk in closet - great for storing the suitcase. I had a room on the 6th floor with a view over the city though rooms on lower floors have no view. The breakfast is basic but... More

I always stay at the Mayflower Hotel when I come to San Francisco. As soon as you arrive, you are greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. It is quaint and very has a lot of charm. The rooms are good sized, but smell a little musty but once you open the windows it does air out. The breakfast... More

The hotel was firstly a great price, on arrival we were met by friendly staff- we had a car with us and their is carparking facility although it was hard to get in and out due to it being a tight...

The hotel was clean and spacious. It was a reasonably priced hotel with convenient location near the city center that comes with private bathroom. However, the room is not very well sound-proof as we can hear people walking around the room above us. The breakfast is very simple with bread and cereal.

There aren't a lot of amenities at this family run hotel, but it's cozy, has a homey feel, and has a lot of character. Our room was recently remodeled and had a microwave and refrigerator for our use. We were on the sixth floor and had a street-side room, but there were new windows and we hardly ever heard any...

The Hotel Mayflower was a great choice for our first visit to San Francisco. Arriving much earlier than planned, we were very surprised that we were able to check in and get our room. The hotel is an older hotel with lots of charm. That charm is first evident with their gated elevators. Thankfully, Hester gave us a quick tutorial... More

Albeit that we did not arrive until the early hours we were greeted with a pleasant welcome from the gentleman on reception. Just what we needed after our flight had been delayed. The room was fine and fairly quiet although it faced the road. Breakfast was standard continental which was adequate. The reception staff were friendly, approachable and willing to... More
