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).

First the good things. Location. This hotel is located a block inside the Chinatown gate. This was a great location, pretty central to attractions. We do a lot of walking when exploring a city, so it was nice to be able to walk to Union Square, Little Italy and transportation. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Before... More

The location is great, right at the entrance of Chinatown, a few minutes walk from the center and major public transportation. Wish there was a breakfast included and fridge in the room, but except that, it is really great value for the price we paid.

We had a quiet room (609) with good wifi and excellent shower. There is no on- site restaurant but plenty of eating choices nearby. It was easy to get to Union Square, the tram, buses and Chinatown is on the doorstep. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We walked there from Montgomerie St station, but it was quite a hike...

The good-side - The room (301) was clean, basic with a nice shower. Compared to the majority of SF hotels, this seemed to be better value for money at the time of booking. The downside - very noisy, it's not only the noise from the street (traffic) but internally also, kids running up and down the stairs every morning (730am),... More

You know because it's san fran it's probably hard to find anywhere cheap but I think next time I will just pay more for elsewhere. Rooms are small you literally don't know small till you are there. Small is exaggeration. Rooms are pretty basic, walls are paper. You can hear everyone showering from each room and above. The elevator hasn't... More

The grant plaza is a good place to stay for location right at the start of chinatown,the hotel itself is clean rooms are quite small with only hanging space for clothes (no chest of drawers) also could be done with tea and coffee making facilities.
