After arriving we were informed that they had over booked and that we would be put in a hotel next door. We refused this as we had paid for an apartment and that's what we wanted. We were offered a different appartments and told that they were better than the soma ..they were in fact a great appartment very clean... More

Please, don't book there. We booked an apartment for three nights. At the day of check in, we tried to reach them by phone for arranging the check in. This was very hard, but after trying very often, we reached somebody. They told us to call them again, when we are at soma place. So we called them again, when... More

Travelling to SF for work, I opted for an independent stay rather than the box standard hotels that I find boring. I booked SOMA suites through booking.com. In a rush, with only just one room left for the days I was visiting SF, I did not read any reviews prior to booking. The setting... SOMA suites has a range of... More

I had an awesome stay at the soma suites. I was quite apprehensive after reading the trip advisor comments though I liked the look of the apartment layout over staying in a small hotel room. The place was really spacious with a full kitchen, bathroom/bath, lounge area and our room on level 19 had an awesome view out over the... More

We booked 3 days and stayed another 3 days after. This place is a short walk from BART and an easy walk to Union Square. Although there are a few homeless people in the neighbourhood we alway let safe and the building itself is very secure, new and safe. Great value that really let us relax and enjoy our holiday....

When we did the reservation, we made the mistake of not reading first TripAdvisor. We were in hurry because all hotels in SF were so expensive that we could not find anything acceptable. We were all of our trip pondering if we would need to lose our money based on what we read. Well, we were lucky and all was... More

We stayed in sept 2014 for 5 nights.First time in San Francisco and thought an apartment would be a change from a hotel and more flexible.The area is not too far from downtown and there are homeless people hanging about the streets nearby but if you are careful they won't be a threat to you.Like other people I would say...

Don't even consider of booking here. The most favorable possible interpretation of our experience is that the owners/operators are completely and utterly incompetent, but deliberate fraud seems not unlikely. Checkin: We arrived at noon, asked the security guard where were supported to check in and she called someone who was to come down and meet us. He took us to... More

The Soma Suites was a nice building, updated and contemporary. This is not your average hotel and was concerned with cleanliness and standards that one would be use to in a regular commercial hospitality hotel. The beds were comfortable, however no extra pillows, blankets or options to call for additions. The mattress pad was an Ikea Memory foam without a... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
