Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel in San Fransisco last summer. We didn't have high expectations, because we just needed a place to sleep, not to hang around. But we were surprised! The location was absolutely perfect! China Town is just around the corner and it's easy to walk to every single attraction in San Fransisco including the pier... More

I have nothing to say against this accommodation. It was clean, it has great location and parking was also provided. WIFI in the room, comfortable bed, kind staff and they also have a room under supervision for your luggage at the day when you need to leave the room, but have a lot of time before you need to leave...

I stayed here for two nights with my two teenaged kids a couple of weeks ago. The location is good in that it's centrally located, right on the border between Chinatown and Little Italy. It's a little dicey in that there are strip clubs right nearby, but my kids are old enough that we made a joke out of it.... More

I stayed three nights at this centrally located motel on the edge of Chinatown that is next door to North Beach (Little Italy). Pros for this accommodation are price, location, free parking, and free Wi-Fi. Nothing really con because we had regular room service, and you have to temper your expectation considering the price point. I agree the décor was... More

First the bad: no internet. It was there, but rarely worked so don't expect to use it. Hallways were pretty old and kinda of gross, same with balcony. That said, fabulous location on edge of Chinatown and N Beach Italian restaurants, walking to piers, , Financial Area, Ferry bldg, etc. Free parking, excellent deal, low room rates. Room itself was... More

This Motel is in the "real" San Francisco. Skip the high prices and tourists stores at the pier. Royal Pacific is located on the edge of China town and Little Italy. It is in a safe location, even though a block or two to the east it gets seedy. I took a train from the airport and the Bart station... More

This place is a bit scary when you first see it especially when arriving at night after a long flight. However, the location is fantastic and within walking distance to a lot of things to do and see. The bed us really comfortable and the shower is hot. Staff are helpful. Free parking and a good price for San Francisco... More

The place is dirty, very very loud, staff is rude, room not ready when told it was, located in a dirty part of the city....just everything about it was simply awful! They wouldn't even take the credit card (the same card... More

This place , with free parking , is on the edge of ChinaTown and North Beach. So you can go one way for Dim Sum ( Yum Cha) for breakfast and the other way for great Italian food at night.. Fisherman Wharf area and the Coit Tower are easily walkable , buses can take you to the various art galleries... More
