I was greeted as soon as I walked into the lobby, and was literally checked in and on the way to my room in under two minutes. All the staff that I dealt with were very courteous and professional. The room was old but comfortable, the bed was fine, and there were new fixtures in the bathroom. Well worth the... More

I come to SF about every other year, sometims more often. If possible, I stay at the Beresford Arms based on past experience. I love the lobby! The location borders Tenderloin, but these days there are so many homeless bums everywhere in SF, it doesn't seem to be any worse here than other areas. I've always found the staff to... More

Good location, but people who work on the reception are very rude. Walls and doors are very thin, so you can hear what is going on in the room next to yours or in the hallway. They say breakfast is included in the price of a room. It is very poor breakfast. They should call it a snack. Rooms don't... More

I want to mention first that the staff was great. We stay in the city quite often when going to Broadway shows, we live across the bay. We checked the posted reviews before booking the hotel. Ok, it's an older hotel and is close to Union Square (4 blocks) but is on the border of the Tenderloin. When we arrived... More

Service is extremly unpolite. They don't say hello to you, they are arrogant. Never seen something like that before and i have been in so many places. Could not sleep at night because walls are so thin. Lovarion is good but there are so many others round the corner

This place is above my expectation. I got it for a little over $100 per night during my new year trip. The hotel is old but clean and really charming; and my room has a Jacuzzi! The location is really convenient, a short walk to the Union Square and Powell station for BART. You can grab the public transportation to... More

I visited San Francisco for business. Everything seemed alright when I first arrived, but my trip was almost ruined by a lady (about 40+) who's working at the front desk. I was assigned to an underground room, which was fine, since I wasn't expecting a high-floor room anyway. However, after I found out that the lock of the window in... More

At $180 a night this is the best hotel you could have in that prime location. Caveats are only the ironing board which was dirty and small. They have a 5pm snack and wine which is nice. Breakfast is nothing to write home about, but across the street farm;table is very nice.

The location is a short walk to Union Square, too far to walk to the wharf. We bought a 3 day pass for the hop on hop off and got around with that. The reviews I read said that it is on the border of the Tenderloin but we didn't experience anything too bad. There are homeless everywhere in SF.... More

I was torn between giving this hotel 3 or 4 stars. The location is great but there are definitely pros and cons: Pros Great Location near Union Square Separate Kitchen Lots of Character Happy Hour Good Price Bathroom a good size. Cons: Mixed Service. Staff at weekend were not very helpful but otherwise ok. Tired decor Quite noisy in room... More
