Rooms were great, nice and clean. In a great location. Really close to union square. They also provide wine, cheese and crackers in the afternoon which was great. Only problem was the breakfast. The designated area was in the foyer eating over coffee tables with not enough seats for all the guests. The selection was some cakes and fruit. Not... More

Have you ever stayed anywhere where your heart sank as soon as you entered your hotel room? This is the place. Everything felt shabby, I didn't dare sit on the ancient bedspread. Breakfast was held in the HOTEL LOBBY and consequently never enough chairs for everyone to sit down never mind a proper table to eat off. But then again... More

It's an old fashioned hotel which offers good value. The location's good - Union Square a couple of blocks away and some good Thai restaurants opposite. Superb pancake cafe nearby which was a relief as the breakfasts were inadequate - muffins and pastries dumped in a box and nowhere to sit - not even any orange juice. The rooms were... More

What was previously a grand old building is now an old hotel in a rundown area of San Francisco. It's well maintained, with clean rooms. Staff are friendly. But the experience is shabby, not sophisticated. First, the wi-fi doesn't work in the rooms. After wasting an hour trying to connect from my room, the front desk finally told me "It's... More

My friend and I spent 4 nights here. The staff at the front desk were clueless as to how to charge us for the room. They tried to over charge us by almost $300.00 and we had to explain to them how to fix the problem. Be careful especially if you don't speak English well enough to debate on incorrect... More

One of my prerequisites for booking overnight accomodation these day is free wifi. 'Wifi is available in the hotel rooms' says my booking form, but this isn't the case. Yes there is a user name and a password helpfully supplied but when it doesn't work and you ask at reception they admit it is 'temperamental' which actually translates as meaning... More

We stayed here as a group of four 21/22 year old girls from Australia for five days in July 2014. The room was perfect for our needs - olden decor, but clean and perfect size for our group. We had two well sized beds, enough room for all four suitcases (just), additional storage (side table, wardrobe and closet, although we... More

It was obvious that the management of the hotel is working hard to keep the guests happy. There is a complementary breakfast with coffee, bakery products and fresh fruit, there is a mini-bar with very reasonably priced drinks and snacks, and there is a wine-and-cheese hour from 4:30pm to about 6:00pm. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The worst... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The staff was helpful and very friendly, and rooms were clean. The fixtures in the room were more dated, but not a big deal. Our room was spacious and had a kitchenette, complete with plates and silverware- very helpful for little meals in the room. The hotel is a couple... More

We stayed in a standard room with 2 queen beds for 3 people. The furnishing were right out of 1978-1982! It had a kitchenette, sitting area and large bathroom with 2 sinks, bidet, large jetted tub. The fixtures are older but in good condition. Soap, shampoo and conditioner provided, not lotion. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel had old charm.... More
