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 Rooms are very outdated and it feels like you're back in the 50's, but the service was great.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 Old TV and outdated decor.

I have stayed at the Astoria Hotel many times before so I know what to expect with my stay. This time I stayed in an economy room. Included in the room was its own bathroom (they have economy plus rooms that have shared bathrooms but they weren’t available on this trip) and also included breakfast. Breakfast included toast and muffins,... More

I traveled to San Fransisco for business during a big show in town so all the big name hotels were way too expensive. Found this place. I would normally say it was a dump because of my pickiness but for the price, I felt it was what I needed. The room was small. The TV was a very old box.... More

Don't make our mistake! I found this place in a guidebook where it was listed as an inexpensive, yet clean place. The location was decent, near the Chinatown gates. The furnishings/beds were very old and the place is old and badly needed a coat of paint. It was noisy and the windows did not close properly. The TV had an... More

I can not stress enough how much I was disgusted with the service, condition and cleanliness of this hotel. On our trip we experienced several hotels including motels in downtown Phoenix... And nothing prepared us for the outright rudeness of the front desk. The hotel seems to be owned by a Chinese group which makes sense being right next door... More

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.
