This was definitely a cheaper budget hotel in San Francisco, but it was walking distance from shopping and great food! The staff was very good as well. It is close to the tenderloin so I wouldn't recommend walking down there alone at night. But overall great experience. Plus, I got a sweet deal on hoprocket.com even though we booked it... More

I really liked that it was affordable and the room was clean. I lost my charger prior to getting checking in and the staff there was nice enough to let me borrow one of their chargers. I stay here often for business and the staff here is very accommodating always. I have stayed at other hotels where it is more... More

I stayed at the Monarch Hotel in October with my girlfriend. Everything is expensive in San Francisco but instead of paying to stay at a hotel with the restrooms at the end of the hallway, I would recommend this hotel. The building is old and the stairways and hallways look really creepy. hahaha, maybe it was just us. The room... More

Three night stay at the Monarch for my birthday weekend. Had friends that stayed in other rooms at this same place, but I had the only double. Not a lot of space, but I had two beds in mine, which really made the place feel smaller. The closet in this particular corner room was VERY big and had a fold-out... More

It isn't horrible but far from good. Room was VERY noisy and interior a bit outdated. You could hear every sound from the elevator, hallway and from the pipes in the bathroom. View was of a building 15 meters away so we had the curtains closed most of our stay for privacy. However, the room was clean, got cleaned every... More

The AMA found this hotel for me, to attend a conference. It is a 2 star which to me means basic, but fine. I don't need a business centre or pool which is usually what you get with the higher starred hotels. As soon as I walked in I knew I was in trouble. It smells very musty. It is... More

It is close to center. There are many restaurants and bars that you can walk. But neighborhood is full of homeless people. Still it looks safe. If your expectations are ot high and looking for a reasonable price hotel it's ok.

Stayed here for 3 nights while touristing around San Francisco. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from union square with all the shops and what not, but it's a 10 minute walk on a street that is full of homeless people and other weird characters. I was scared walking there during the day and at night time I... More

The hotel decor is a bit dated and the rooms slightly neglected. The bathroom wasn't great; we did complain about our shower and the did quickly send a housekeeper to take a look at it. The rooms were a moderate size. There is a bit of noise from the streets below however it is a city destination. What I wish... More
