This hotel is two star quality. The location is good, but it is in Chinatown, not Union Square. The room is small, without any AC, you can hear everything everywhere, and the bed feels like plywood. I could have dealt with all of the other issues for the price if the bed was comfortable, but it was terrible. It was... More

Our room was newly renovated, clean and spacious, great view of chinatown, very reasonable price for the location. You walk out the door and your in chinatown. Staff was very kind and helpful. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to plan a trip to San Francisco!

Small but good value for money boutique hotel with renovated bathrooms. Friendly and helpful staff! Located in Chinatown and close by to everything. Only bad point is that there is very poor wifi provided.

No airco in the room only a cheap rusty fan. The bed were pretty hard as well. Would not recommend it. Location: middle of... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, which is why I booked it. A block from high end hotels like the Ritz. Walking distance to great tourist attractions, and transportation. For the purpose of being a tourist and knowing I wouldn't be spending time in the room, I was overall very pleased. The room served the purpose I was looking... More

Nice hotel, good facilities, free wifi, clean room but not very spacious and no aircon. Lobby under construction when we stayed but no noise disruption in the evening or morning. Close to shops and restaurants nice central location - 5 mins from union square and just inside china town.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
