Stayed 4 days in San Francisco for business one week before Super Bowl 50. Loved the hotel's style, rates were reasonable and the location truly unbeatable. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in San Francisco.

Friendly staff, we were upgraded so had a great in room Jacuzzi. Perfect location. Recommend NOT driving into the city as parking is very expensive, taking the train or BART is perfect way to travel and hotel location is walking distance to both. Dirty habit closed early on Sunday so we were not able to go to the bar, but... More

I've been coming to SF for years and only recently discovered Hotel Zelos...Great service at reception and the rooms are modern and clean. More modern than the external facade. Very convenient location right next to SF Centre, end of the Powell Street cable car line, Union Square, Moscone Center, and a handful of blocks away from the Ferry building. It... More

This is a great boutique hotel in a great area of San Francisco. Very close to great shopping and only a Street Car ride from the Pier area. Staff very friendly and helpful and room had everything we needed for our stay. Very comfortable and well priced. We would definitely return again.

Great service - great room. Staff is super helpful and the location is super convenient. Everything was seamless from check in to check out. I forgot a pair of shoes at the hotel and they were super efficient about sending them back to me. Definitely recommend staying here.

If your objective is to visit downtown San Francisco, Hotel Zelos is perfectly located. Short walk to the Moscone Center, BART, & shopping. Excellent selection @ the Dirty Habit bar. Staff was very attentive. Kudos to Renee @ front desk for her assistance. The gym is a bit difficult to find. Otherwise, all great. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel Zelos is well situated in the business district. Staff is great and very helpful. Dirty Habit is a good venue to meet for cocktails and the drink/ food selection is interesting. An overall pleasant experience.

I was placed in a room right outside the restaurant dish washing service. I heard crashing of dishes until almost midnight on all 3 nights. The restaurant staff was extremely loud conducting their business. There was absolutely no consideration for the guests near the restaurant. I was shocked with the lack on consciousness. The hotel should know better not to... More

Everything was near perfect at this hotel, location is great, rooms stylish and very comfortable and staff eager to please. One major draw back for the business traveler is that there is no room service with the exception of breakfast. I typically work late and don't want to search for nearby restaurants at 8'pm. Other than that the Hotel would... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
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.
