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

We recently visited this hotel on our honeymoon, we were greeted by a very friendly check in clerk who congratulated us as soon as we walked it. 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

When I booked our stay of the King George we never received a confirmation so I had to contact them to ensure we actually had a room booked (luckily, we did!). When we arrived we were notified that there was not going to be water in our room until later that day. We were fine with it as it seemed... More

The Union Square location of this hotel is perfect. Close to all transit, shopping, pubs and restaurants. Ideal if you are without a car. The rooms were clean and cozy, albeit small. Staff were for the most part friendly and helpful. My only issue with this hotel was the price, and the difficulty with reservations. I understand that downtown San... More

First off, there is no air conditioning. There is a ceiling fan, but that just doesn't cut it most of the time. The room was very, very small, and the bed. It sunk in the middle, into what my husband and I call a "taco bed." You know, where the edges flip up and you and your hubby are sinking... More

A very tired and run down hotel both in decor and amenities. Although it does appear to be starting to renovate, there was a notice board on display showing new room layouts and swatches. Our twin room was small, with 2 single beds (not what I have come to expect from USA hotel rooms). We had to ask for the... More

Besides being expensive, we found this Hotel to be far too noisy. I asked the clerk to give us a quiet room, but then we found the room we had reserved was not available, they put us in a suite, which was nice, but overlooked the main street on the 2nd floor, neither us nor our daughter got any sleep,...

I wouldn't stay here again. It was over $200 and super small. Not to mention the bathroom was even smaller! I felt claustrophobic in there! It was clean, but just not worth it. I would suggest the opal if you plan on staying in San Fran for about the same budget. Then our sink vomited up rust and sewer stuff.... More

The location was fantastic. 2 mins from the union square, mission street, moscone center etc. The staffs were also very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms were extremely small for our likeness. It was like living in a hostel room. However, they were neat and clean and properly taken care of.
