The bedding at this hotel was incredibly uncomfortable! I found myself with horrible back pain due to the beds being as hard as a rock!! Do not stay here if you like a comfortable bed! I am not one to be fussy but I feel that if I knew this about the hotel prior to searching for a hotel I... More

If you're looking for a really cheap hotel in a safe, central location, you can't do better than the Grant Plaza. I've stayed at many hotels in SF. The Grant Plaza is my favorite of the low price hotels. It's a safe and very central location - right in Chinatown and close to Union Square, North Beach, Nob Hill, one... More

Stayed for one night before boarding a cruise at the new SF Cruise Terminal. We knew the hotel and location from many walks in SF and Chinatown. Did not expect too much given the very busy location and super reasonable price.....but were quite pleasantly surprised! We had requested a quiet room and were given one on the 5th floor in... More

This hotel has features in its favour .Position,position position. It is in the heart of Chinatown and BART and the Cable cars are only a few blocks away.I found the staff friendly and helpful. They took my Kindle and camera and recharged them both for me. My room was a bit tired but was clean. However the walls were rather... More

The hotel is currently going through renovations and will take about 6 months to complete. The rooms are noisy at night and the heaters make odd noises that may keep you up at night. For the price, I thought it was a great deal and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Looking forward to visiting again once renovations are... More

Stayed for 3 nights in June 2014, travelling solo. Was impressed when I arrived, but not the good kind of impressed. I knew that it wasn't a great hotel, seeing the pictures, but it was really bad. The room is tiny, stained carpets, bed was not good. Bathroom didn't seem clean, shower was very very very small, and I had... More

The location of this place is great, right in the heart of Chinatown. I am 6'2 and the beds are barely 6feet long. The shower head barely reached my neck and since the showers are small definitely have a stretch before you contort your body in there. The hotel is basically just a small bed in an emotionless room but... More

All I can say is that this hotel is poor, it is very expensive to stay in Sanfran so we took a mid range hotel stay here, still paying about £85 a night. Location wise it is perfect, however the hotel is filthy, the bed had a whole in the middle so your feet are up in the air, and... More

Checked in to what we though was going to be a nice looking hotel, that had recently been renovated, with some mixed reviews. After providing my details to the desk, I was given the keys to my run-down room in the corner of the fourth floor. I rang the front desk and asked why the room was different to the... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
