Just back from 4 nights at the Beresford Arms Hotel, San Francisco. Good location hotel for city centre and site seeing with Union Square just down the road. The rooms are a bit dated but perfectly suitable for a city break and the staff were very helpful to us all. The breakfast is a bit disappointing, as it is really... More

After checking out several small hotels, we booked a basic room with the Beresford Arms for a long weekend in January. After reading several reviews, I requested a room on a higher floor facing Jones Street because of traffic noise. The room we got was very nice, but small with a very small bathroom. We asked the desk clerk if... More

We (family of four - 2 teenagers) have just returned from a 5 night stay in San Fran. We stayed at the Beresford Arms Hotel near Union Square. It was a great location - 5 minute walk from Union Square and the cable cars. Don't walk west of hotel as it gets a bit seedy. Hotel is not a/c so... More

Older hotel just off Union Square. Able to walk or take Muni to everything. Very friendly staff and a great value. Rates include continental breakfast (croissants, pastries, fruit, coffee, tea - even saw them bring out juice boxes for some children) and afternoon wine & cheese. Great break during the middle of a hectic day sightseeing. Our rooms were facing... More

Trying to find a comfortable, well located, and reasonably priced hotel in San Francisco was extremely difficult even after researching through Trip Advisor. The Beresford Arms was a very nice hotel and proved an excellent choice by the travel agent. Although it looks a bit "tired", the rooms are very accommodating and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

My partner and I stayed here for nine nights while in San Fran, and it was a fabulous hotel. The prices were super cheap, the room was large and clean. The staff were great and really helpful, I recommend it highly. Also across the road is a fantastic Indonesian restaurant, and if you are staying for a bit there is... More

This hotel was recommended by my Travel Agent and I went along with it even though I am normally a Hyatt or Marriott type of person. It is definitely "quaint" and if you that is the type of thing you are into then this place is ok but you do need to watch the room that you are given. I... More

My husband and I spent three nights at The Beresford Arms and we were so impressed with the size of the room. We were upgraded to a junior suite which has 2 double beds, a small kitchen, lots of closet space, and a very large bathroom. There is a complimentary wine and cheese from 4:30 - 5:30p.m. in the elegant... More

We had 4 nights in a junior suite and were pleasantly surprised to find a kitchen with stove and everything you would need to cook if you wanted too. Not that you need to, breakfast in the mornings and happy hour, with restaurants close. The thai noodle was great although not licensed. The room we had was large and very... More

Essentially, I agree with the positive comments that have already been stated by other reviewers. My story is as follows: I had a problem with the noise in my room (my only problem there)... apparently there were some kids having some sort of graduation party down the hall. I'm not a complainer, but I was meeting a client in the... More
