Hotel Bijou was the perfect place to stay while I was in San Francisco. Conveniently located just blocks from Union Square, it was easy to get around downtown and be just steps away from "home." Blanca, Maria and JR were helpful, friendly and always welcoming with a smile and the valet staff was very accommodating and reliable. The rooms were... More

The hotel is located in a great spot to connect with transportation. It is within easy walking distance to busses, street cars, cable cars, BART, and light rail. It is a brief and easy stroll to Union Square and Chinatown. The surrounding neighbourhood is pretty seedy, especially after dark. There are several street people, panhandlers, and druggies hanging out nearby.... More

I stayed here for two weeks (while attending ITMI) and overall had a positive experience. First of all, the staff is GREAT; Jaleesa and JR were especially awesome and incredibly helpful. They did everything they could to make our stay more enjoyable and are the reason I give Bijou 4 stars instead of 3. The hotel has funky vibe and... More

Bijou Hotel has a nice localization, close to the " heart of San Francisco downtown", but it suffers from this same advantage, since it is close for a nice so good neighborhood going right to Mason street...Anyway, taking the precaution when walking late at night in that area, during the day, it is a fantastic area, close to the Westfield...

I stayed for four days. I came to see the city and visit friends not the amenities of the hotel. If you want the perks go two blocks up the street for twice the price and all the amenities. JR, Jalessa and Warren were the best, offering me great places to dine and advice on what to visit first. The... More

Thank you JR and Jaleesa My 2 weeks was great. The room was pretty decent. I wasn't expecting greatness but it serves it's purpose. The location is very close to all the forms of transport and the touristy Union Square.

A very nice place, front desk and breakfast people as well as cleaning ladies are friendly and willing to help. The price is cheap for the center of SF. The rooms are well-equipped and clean. Come with some ear-plugs (the hotel gives you earplugs for free) as some evenings around the block could be noisy, but nothing special if you... More
