Yes the location is excellent, but so is any hotel within a short walk to a BART station. This place has some problems but I do not want to me so critical in this review. I write it hoping the owners will read it and consider my points. They should replace the blinds or at least clean them, the caked... More

Hotel Location is perfect, basically at the entrance of Chinatown / downtown. However when we arrived we had a pretty bad surprise, as the rate we secured via hotel.com was not valid anymore. "They changed owners". We managed to keep the same price but hotel.com paid the difference. The quality of the stay is really bad, we did a check... More

We stayed in this 'hotel' for 5 nights and despite its total lack of charm, facilities, comfort or style, we survived. It was the last leg of our trip so we weren't that bothered about the creaky lift, scruffy and peeling paintwork or blankets with holes in (though they were really grim), we just needed a cheap, centrally located base...

The whole building looks very old, with shaking elevator and singing staircases. The staffers are cold and do not seem willing to help. The bed sheets are dirty. Mine even has a string of ink spots. All items from beds to walls to television look like not cleaned for decades. A lot of noise during midnight even at floor seven.... More

First of all I think that a lot of the reviews about this place are unnecessarily whiny. In a city atmosphere there will be bums, there will be smells and there will be sights that you do not care for. That's the city - get over it or vacation somewhere else. Secondly, don't complain about the noise outside when you're... More

First off let me say this is not a super fancy hotel, so if you want the luxuroius San Francisco hotel experince, dont stay here . Rooms are very outdated and it feels like you're back in the 50's, but the service was great. The front desk agent was a young kid but he was always super friendly and I... More

Arrived at 10 PM in the rain with my wife from the airport. Customer service desk had NO confirmation of my reservation and wanted to charge the NEW rate as they stated they had a change of management and would NOT honour my confirmed email from Venere.com booking site. As it was late and raining, I agreed and checked in.... More

Booked a room 3 months in advanced for $115/night + tax and guaranteed with a credit card. When we checked in we were informed the rate went up to $180/night but glad John comprised to lower to $140/night + tax for a room with 2 Qbeds. Not a fancy hotel but location is perfect. Chinatown is just on the left... More

The location is the best thing about this hotel. Hotel just recently changed ownership so all reservations through the Hotel Astoria website were cancelled. You now have to make reservations through Expedia. Rooms have gone up in price too. I have stayed in this hotel several times for $75 a night which was a decent price for this hotel. The... More

The location was excellent -- just outside the gates of Chinatown and easy walking to Union Square. Two single beds that felt small. Lots of noise and extraneous light from outside. Old TV and outdated decor.

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.
