Great place to stay in SF. Really close to the main mall and great stores and easy to reach cable cars and buses. I was able to walk around every day and it was really nice. The room was lovely as the whole building. There were only 2 problems : our card key stopped working like 5 times during a... More

Great location and great price and the room was old fashioned but awesome. However our room seemed to be nearest a club as every night we stayed there was thumping bass music playing from 10.30pm - 4pm so had to purchase ear plugs. Also staff obviously hated their job as they were really moody.

What we like are Location of this hotel is close to Union Square. With this affordable price, it bangs for your buck. Room condition for the room at the back of the hotel. Several restaurants, groceries, car rental are near to this hotel. What we don't like are Wi-Fi

Do not even think of staying at this place. We were enticed by the price, but guess what? You get (or do not get) what you pay for!!! It was a dirty room, with ceiling light fixtures missing covers, wallpaper peeling, one light on the nightstand was not even working, wood working around windows crumbling, and a smell of Lysol...

The staff were friendly, and the room clean. That's pretty much where the good stuff ends. It's on the edge of Tenderloin (not a great area), and doesn't feel particularly safe. It's on a very noisy street, and the windows aren't double glazed. The electricity sockets in my room were actually falling out of the wall. The switch on the... More

This is an older hotel, but very clean and neat. The day staff, Sid, was extremely helpful. The room can get street noise but wearing ear plugs at night really helps. The hotel is right in the heart of the city, so it's close to everything. There is no air conditioning and a few other things, but we didn't miss... More
