I guess you get what you paid for. It's an old hotel, but it had everything we needed during our stay. The location was convenient and their complementary breakfast was good as well. What got me was their valet parking. (Or at least this is what they call valet 'service'). At arrival: The hotel staff told us to parallel park... More

My family of 5 recently stayed here on our first trip to San Francisco. We had 2 rooms and both were clean and comfortable. Breakfast is a continental one and has cereal and pastries. Small but enough to get you through to lunch. It is close to both the cable cars and the street cars. It is walking distance to... More

This hotel is perfect for exploring San Francisco. The location is great, in the middle of town. The hotel is old, it's kind of charming. The decor is nice. The room has no air conditioning! The bathroom is small but okay. The hotel is a bit noisy. There were people walking in the hallway and slamming with doors in the... More

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
