My husband and I spent three nights here- starting on Christmas day. We have stayed at the Royal Pacific many times and recommended it to friends. We had a front facing balcony room for the first time this time and loved it! Yes Broadway is noisy at times- but so atmospheric- and you can watch the world go by from... More

This gem is located on the cusp of China Town (the real part) and North Beach. Everything was within a few blocks including Beach Blanket Babylon. Very basic no frills but clean and free parking. Rooms in front have excellent view of Coit Tower but a little noisy.

We have stayed here 3 times now, so that is a fairly good sample size. Rooms are adequate, location is very good. It is a short distance to Little Italy or Chinatown, Lots of very good places to eat within walking distance. Another plus is parking is included with the room. Many hotels in this area charge extra or have... More

As most people, we enjoy staying near the city centre when we visit a city but we don't like to pay through the nose. This was an excellent choice. The rooms are clean, the shower had good water pressure (with one of those fixed shower heads that seem so popular in the US) and the bed was comfortable. The staff... More

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in mid Nov-2014. Initially my room was to be ready for check in at 3 PM. I arrived at 3:30 & was promptly checked in. I went to my room on the top (5th) floor and was dismayed to see that the room had not been cleaned whatsoever. Thankfully this was remidied... More

Excellent location, few steps to Columbus surrounded by all kinds of eating places. Room is big and clean, adequate towels and shampoo. Free parking. Very weak non exist free wifi. Polite front desk. $145/night include taxes. Rooms at the back are less noisy.

I stayed here with my husband for a few days, and we were really pleased with our hotel choice! Reasonable priced, so we weren't expecting luxury. The rooms are a good size, beds are big and comfy. Our room overlooked the front of the road which was great for people watching! But could get a little noisy, it wasn't much... More

This has been our base for our stay in San Francisco. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is air con if needed. It's apparently relatively well priced. It cost me a lot and I wonder if people get secret deals or just have bigger budgets, in fact everything in America costs so much more than I remember. The wifi worked... More

Having stayed in over 10 hotels in the US to date, it's the first without a flat screen TV or a wide range of channels and had by far the worst Internet connection. If you're planning on using the internet at all, forget it. Otherwise, it sufficed. The free parking is a massive bonus. Although, unless you get in the... More

Faced with an unexpected free day following a conference in Sacramento, my wife and I decided to head to San Francisco to see "Beach Blanket Babylon," an excellent, campy musical review. The Royal Pacific was selected because it is within 2+ blocks of the theater and offered free parking with our booking. We arrived in the late afternoon and found... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
