We were apprehensive about booking this hotel but it turned out fine. I would rate it as 3 and a half stars for the stay and 5 for the price. It is situated right across from ACT and the Curran Theater in the "Theater District" of SF. One has to realize that San Francisco neighborhoods change by the block and... More

No amenities, it is old, with spring like beds and tube TV's, but it was clean and close to shopping, restaurants and where we needed to be. Service was great at the front desk. Served our purpose well,

Small restaurants next to the know fast food place, also plenty of options of breakfast restaurants in the the closer area. Chnatown in... More

About 2 blocks from Union Square in one of those areas that are borderline good area. By day, it is a normal street but at night, it is a place for rowdies and panhandlers. The hotel itself is fine. Good service, clean rooms with great beds! The room is small and the bathroom is so small the the sink doesn't... More

I booked this hotel using an online booking system and believed when I was booking it was a 3 star though later found out its only 2 star. We stayed here for 4 nights and found the location perfect for just about everywhere. The hotel is an older building with European sized rooms and older furniture. The room we stayed... More

Advantages: Nice service Great location Clean Disadvantages: Old, very small rooms Disgusting smell No air, tried opening the windows, but the building next to us that I could touch from the window wouldn't let any air in. At least they gave me a fan Forget about wifi Can't even get coffee in the morning Very loud

Horrible internet connection, no coffee, no breakfast, no freezer in the room, no light in the room, too much noise at night, attendants were not nice (they seem to be there by obligation). Only the cleanser was fine and friendly. Too much money for a simple bed.
