I read lots of negative reviews before staying here and didn’t know what to expect. If you are accustomed to luxurious accommodations and hotels with lots of amenities then this is not the place for you; however, if you are just looking for a place to sleep after a long day of sightseeing and don’t want to break the bank...

Located in Chinatown, with asiatic staff, in the middle of the city. The street a little noisy, but ok. Near from market street with shopping and public transport, cable car too. Room ok and bathroom ok too. The shower was very good. No parking incluided.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in August. I had a room on the 3rd floor (2nd if you are British), and while it looked a bit tired/dated, it was reasonably comfortable. The bed was a bit short for me (I'm just short of 6', and my feet were hanging off the edge of the bed when I... More

This hotel was of average decor and quality, but it was very reasonable for the rates they charge and for where it is. It is very conveniently located. Right on the border of Union Square & Chinatown so both of these are at your doorstep. Embarcadero is just 5 minutes walk away. If you're a keen walker, you can walk... More

Don't be fooled by their website photos. It doesn't look as clean and neat in the photo in a real life. I fell for it. It's an old hotel, carpet is dirty, old, smelly. I didn't even dare to walk around bare foot. I was always wearing flip flops. We stayed in a small room with one small double bed.... More

The decor is very old. Lift can only hold 4 people even though there is space for 8! Suspect the pulley is antiquated. The curtains are frayed and couldn't shut properly. I need to use chairs to prop against the curtains to hold it down. Although old, the state of the room is clean and rather polite service from the... More

Ok so we new it wasn't the Ritz, we just needed a base for 3 nights whilst here and in that respect it did the job perfectly. Literally just inside the Chinatown gate and about 3 blocks from Union Square with great transport facilities nearby and lots to see and do however the rooms were very small and also a... More

Stayed in a double room with twin bed. The room was ok, but no view at all. Ok warderobe and a little table and a ok bathroom. Nothing more nothing less. What you cam expect for a two star hotel. The location was very good. Close to at least 3-4 breakfast places. Good area just a step in in Chinatown.... More

In SFO, this hotel offers a good ratio quality/price. We stayed there for 3 nights over a week-end, Our rooms (x2) were small but clean. We have never been bothered by the noise either from people in the corridor or from the street. Nothing looks really modern there but for the price we paid, we had all the necessary and... More

The room was basic but clean. No air conditioning and very poor air circulation in the room. The hotel is located centrally in Chinatown, with good street lighting at night. Lots of great restaurants nearby, and relatively close to union square (pick up point for a lot of tours).
