Very basic hotel. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Exactly how advertised. The good things are that the staff are fantastic, special mention to Daniel who's knowledge of the area was second to none. The location is perfect, buses and trams one block over, walking distance to all major stores and top restaurants and bars. Fishermans wharf just a... More

Stayed here for an overnight, room and bathroom was compact but very nice. Two large beds squeezed into the room. The location is good and within easy reach of the main piers...night staff were very friendly. However, parking is in the main car park across the road and is not subsidised so your accountable for the full parking fee...no discount... More

Be aware, this hotel has no AC in the rooms which I didn't know prior to booking. Stupid me for thinking a hotel I'm paying well over $600 would have AC as standard. Only the 1st Floor rooms have AC. Instead I have to open the window to get any cooling and listen to the outside traffic and have no... More

A really good location is the main benefit of this hotel as it so close to Union Square and Car rental pick ups. We only stayed for one night as we were wanting to get on with the trip but we would use this as a base again as it is perfectly situated. Good service from the staff on the... More

Small but perfectly formed room. Excellent, friendly and unstinting service at all times. Perfect for Union Square and cable car service to Lombard Street. We went for the 'Big Red' bus tour on first full day and found the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park which we loved. San Francisco is a place we shall visit again and we... More

He also told us we had been upgraded to one of their recently refurbished rooms and gave us drinks vouchers for the bar. It was a lovely surprise. The first flight of stairs... More

In spite of many years of enduring peeling paint, wallpaper and other disrepair and shabbiness, the charm, ambiance and friendly and considerate staff have made the King George Hotel a special place for us - it is the only place we have stayed in San Francisco for the past 32 years. However, at checkout when making our reservations for November,... More
