Unfortunately this hotels best years are long gone and whilst its location is not bad and room rates very reasonable, we struggled to get a good nights sleep. Our room was ok but the noisy heating system was simply annoying and if your room is on the Market street side be prepared to being kept awake by the homeless down... More

In a central location within walking distance of City Hall and other sights, this is a dated hotel in housed in an old building. Do not expect modern rooms nor fixtures but the rooms are reasonable for the price they charge. The street noise can be disturbing for some even if you keep the windows closed.

it's realy not easy to rate this hotel, yes, the elevators are broken most of the time; outside you have homeless guys which you should just ignore. the rooms are outdated and across the street you have one of the bigger stripclubs/tabledance clubs in san francisco.... BUT somehow this hotel has it's own charm, it's cheap and it's right in... More

Anyone who says this place is anything other than aweful is an employee of the hotel. This hotel is so dirty and rat infested that I checked out in the middle of the night with my family. The front desk was so unprofessional and the location was so undesirable. Homeless people all over the place and you hear sirens all... More

I'm unsure why anyone would find this hotel anything other than 'Terrible'. Pay more or just avoid staying in San Francisco! I'm travelling around California whilst trying to keep costs down, I needed a night in SF and the Renoir was just under $100 for the night. Photographs of the hotel looked OK (they are accurate!) and when I checked... More

The bad: the noise coming from Market St., like the historic cars, and the occasional fights/rough play/loud conversations from the people hanging out in the area (not necessarily homeless). Although, there is a high concentration of homeless people around the hotel. If you can sleep through anything and gritty areas don't easily frighten you, then you'll be fine.

Our room was dirty, and there was a lot of noise from the street, so we didn't get any sleep. There were hookers, drug dealers and homeless people near the hotel, and it just wasn't a safe place to be, so we left the next morning and found another hotel!
