I found this hotel very quaint. Service desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and regularly serviced. WIFI access was great. Tip is to ask for a room off the street as there is a local hospital and sirens are a bit loud if you leave windows open. 2 Very large walk in robes! Great historical building... More

The Mayflower Hotel was such a great experience! It's about 1.6 miles (one way) to Fishemans wharf and Pier 39 and about 4 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge. Public transportation is very close if you are not able to walk long distances. The rooms are clean, affordable, and have a lot of charm. There is no A/C but there... More

What a find! This charming hotel, located in lower nob hill, has a European feel and amenities from a bygone era. The elevators have the old metal gates. But everything is updated. The room is updated with good bedding, new flooring, updated bath fixtures with marble. The bedding for a family was a queen with a day bed and trundle.... More

위치도 좋고 가격도 샌프란시스코 다운타운인 것을 감안할 때 저렴했습니다. 편안한 2박을 보낼 수 있어서 정말 좋았고 다음에 샌프란 다운타운에 방문하게 되면 이곳에서 다시 머물고 싶습니다. Love this place! The price was reasonable and the location is very close to Union Square. The room was cozy and comfortable. So sad that we missed the breakfast because of jet lag.

We had a nice stay at the Mayflower. It was our first time to SF and couldn't believe how expensive hotels are here! We stumbled across the Mayflower and were lucky to find it!!!! What a gem hidden in the city. The room (and entirety of the hotel) was well furnished with a LOT of personality. We loved all of... More

I grew up in the Bay Area 60 years ago and come back often for visits. The Mayflower is a very well kept older property within walking distance to many central San Francisco sights. What sets it apart from many of the other "boutique" hotels are reasonable rates, friendly staff, free buffet breakfast, and FREE PARKING (if your car fits... More

The location is great. We walked to Chinatown, Coit Tower and Fisherman's Wharf. It was walkable also to a lot of food and some nice gelato (mmm...). The room managed to fit our family of four including a cot. The extra sink and microwave were useful. Read other reviews about the parking - what an experience to put a car... More

We had a lovely stay at the mayflower. The hotel is very very clean. The staff were always helpful. It is in a great location, you can walk just about any where from the hotel. Loved our stay because it was easy to get around. I would go back. Did I mention how clean it was.

Family driven hotel. Very friendly staff and an excellent location close to the center of San Francisco. The breakfast is a little simple. The room and batroom was spacy, nice and clean, so all in all Mayflower gives a very good value for money.
