I had booked for 2 nights, they only had me down for one (I don't know where wires had got crossed) - but they sorted it out no problem. The room was terrific - very good quality accommodation, service was very helpful, location was OK.

This place was ok. The lobby stinks of urine and the rooms are quite hot and stuffy but with a window open (which can be really loud if you have a street room) they aren't so bad. I found the beds really comfy but pillows were HUGE and awful. The rooms look clean but there was a dirty sock on... More

Lovely room, may be a little smaller than other places we stayed but plenty of space for my husband and I with our suitcases. Obviously in the heart of San Francisco you aren't going to get lovely views but the location was great! Just around the corner from Union Square itself and you can get cable cars from here. Taxi...

This place is a cheap, safe place to stay downtown. The location is why I picked it. It is within walking distance to Chinatown and the trolley car station. There is no AC but opening the windows cooled the room down. We were in the back of the hotel so the noise was not bad. The room itself was simple... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was small but cute. The location was great! It was a close walk to many bars and restaurants as well as shopping. It was a $10 cab ride back from the Warf after our walk there. The walls were pretty thin so we were lucky our neighbors were not loud --... More

When we arrived my boyfriend wrote me a note saying "what is this hell hole" We were taken up stairs to our room and after travelling around the US for over 5 weeks it wasn't our favourite hotel to say the least, however it was a "hell hole" it's just dated and small. The staff were helpful especially the evening... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Beresford for 3 nights from the 22nd July to the 25th July 2014. I initially booked the hotel as it was the cheapest and closest to Union Square, and which had some good reviews on here. The hotel is in an excellent position and close to lots of bars, restaurants, and shopping... More

I have been staying at the Hotel Beresford since the late 1970s. The rooms are often small and it is a budget hotel, but one with lots of charm that is clean and in the best location in downtown SF. The breakfast is minimal but free and gets you by till lunch. The staff is nice and helpful. Don't expect... More

We spent 2 + 2 nights here and were perfectly happy in the busiest, most central district of SF. The rooms are comfortable, if a little camped. Great bed, fine bathroom, noiseless rooms facing the courtyard. The staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast kind of sucks but has decent coffee and fresh croissants at The White Horse bar (which... More

This is a really nice hotel right downtown. It is only a block away from Union Square and within easy walking distance to ChinaTown and all the shops. It is NOT a luxury place BUT it is clean and and the staff are great. Breakfast is free and basic but there are numerous restaurants close by for all your meals.... More
