We were roomed on the seventh floor - at the rear so we expected a good night`s sleep, how wrong we were!. By Mayoral command the city dustbins are emptied in the early hours, and yes - the bins are at the rear of the hotel! Broken sleep apart the hotel is superbly placed for trams, bus, and cable cars,... More

The front desk guy Hansel was really nice. But the room itself was old, extremely small and no A/C. We slept w the windows open at night and could hear the nightlife way too loud. Beds were uncomfortable too. Don't think I'll stay here in the future.

The location is perfect as it is just a few meters from the Union Square. The price is ok comparing to the other hotels in the city (and usually prices are rather expensive), but even so, I can not say that it is cheap, looking for what it offers. It is enough to have a nice hot bath at the... More

Looks can be deceptive,the pics say something on the website but in reality this was probably the worst hotel I have ever experienced on my trip to the US,the rooms were very small and the bathroom didn't have enough space to even turn around,my friend and me immediately checked out of this hotel the moment we saw the rooms and...

it is not the most beautifull hotel in the world, neither staff at the desk is of big help, but the room was clean, with your own bathroom(not very common in San Francisco if you are on a budget) and just minutes away from the main muni/bart station and Union Square

As other people have previously stated, hotel in good location, relatively clean, BUT we hardly slept for the 3 nights we were there (Sept 17-19) There isn't any double glazing or sound insolation and Room 307 faced a hotel multi storey car park and worse of all, the rubbish bins from that hotel, down in the alley 3 floors below....

The hotel itself is in an excellent area, a block over from Union Square and still competitively priced. However, the main reason for the five star review was the excellent customer service we received from one of the members of staff, Hansel. I had carelessly left four shirts in the wardrobe of my room and only noticed by the time... More

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in September. It was blasting hot and there isn't any A/C at this location. As other travelers have said we opened the windows and it helped a little. We left windows open all night. The person at the hotel gave us earplugs and we slept just fine. The street noise is very... More
