Clean and basic but well located for Union Square. Breakfast is on paper plates and cups disposed of in a bin. The adjacent pub is handy for a drink and reasonably priced meal at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are plenty of alternative restaurants and bars located nearby.

We enjoyed it here. The hotel was lovely although we did have a room next to lift that was a little noisy. Ideally based for exploring as the famous trams were just round the corner. Not too far from all the sights and the staff were helpful. The pub was quite nice too

Little disappointed, the room was small, and the bed is a small double. My son stayed in another room and he could not sleep due to the noise in a club or a pub. Breakfast was from a paper plate and coffee served in paper cup all you got was a Danish pastry. The Hotel Beresford Arms there sister hotel... More

This hotel is kooky, old, a little unorganised....but, great location, clean & cheap. The breakfast wasn't good, but we didn't care. We were not using the hotel to hang out in, we were there to explore SF & from this location, this was made easy. We would recommend & we would stay here again, no problem.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Beresford for two nights while vacationing in San Francisco. We choose this hotel because of it's prime location to Union Square and the BART. Also, we are attracted by the cheaper rates which included a continental breakfast. However, we are quite disappointed in our stay. While the hotel is definitely centrally located, and... More

Very old hotel which is in urgent need of an upgrade. Pokey rooms, even smaller bathrooms. Was originally put in a smokers room which smelt really funky. When we asked for a non smokers room, we were obliged but the response was non impressive. Need to upgrade the customer service skills also. Free breakfast - big deal. Over priced, under... More

We stayed at the Beresford for 4 nights & had a very pleasant experience. The hotel is charming & quaint with a lot of character. It offered a light breakfast every morning which was much appreciated. The staff was personable & helpful. The hotel itself is located blocks from Union Square in the midst of everything including shopping, restaurants, theatres... More

The good: 12 blocks from the BART, mainly uphill but very walkable w/luggage. Ideal location for walkers to Union Square or Ferry Building. Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful with directions. Hotel is very clean given its age. Room was exceptionally clean. Free breakfast will do if pressed for time, but a few carbs and fruit won't last very... More

Stayed at the Beresford for five nights with my husband and daughter. The service was very good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It is not far from Union Square and was very close to bus stops and plenty of restaurants. However on the downside, we discovered that it is only three blocks from a fire station and... More
