Luckily we only stayed 4 nights. On arrival we were told that the elevator was out of order and it never looked like being fixed while we were there. Our room was large and the bathroom was okay but there were piles of mosquitoes and it was really noisy from activity in Chinatown. Wifi was only available on the second... More

Bed's were really uncomfortable, place was kind of dirty and no free continental breakfast, why would anyone pay $5 for Continental breakfast?. Wifi is not available only in a specified room on the second floor of the hotel. the LOCATION is the only GOOD thing.

My husband and I stayed here in our short trip to San Fran. If it was more than two nights, I would have checked out and gone somewhere else. The location was good, walking distance to shops, restaurants and easily accessible via public transport. The hotel is dated, but this was no issue for us as it was a short... More

Reasonable hotel that is mostly suited for the solo traveller and not recommended for a couples getaway. Beds are old and springy, showers are not in the best condition. Wifi only in a common room on the second floor where a few gruesome couches and an old meeting table have been set up. However due to the low price of... More

Largely-speaking I haven't changed my opinion of the Astoria Hotel. It's still, in my mind, absolutely wonderfully-located, hard to beat on price and, if you are of the right type of mindset, of perfectly adequate quality. However, I realised on a recent trip, my fifth stay at the Astoria, that there really has never been any effort to improve, or... More

I've stayed here at the Astoria Hotel every time I've visited The City except once and I've been visiting on a regular basis since 1986-1987. I stayed once at the Olympic Hotel on Mason Street near the Hilton and the Marriott off of O'Farrell St. The Olympic was on par with the Astoria but was bought out by the Art... More

I stayed here for 5 nights which was 4 nights too many. Before I go into the problems I encountered I want to say that the price and location were great! However, you definitely get what you pay for. My biggest complaint is that the room seemed to be infested with Mosquitos. My sister and I had buzzing in our... More

Location is good, right next to Dragons Gate and near BART, Trolleys and buses. Walkable to Fishermans Wharf and AT&T park if you have nice weather. The price is also good (for SF apparently) compared to other places. However it is more like a hostel in terms of room quality. Rooms are single but mine had a toilet and shower... More

I stayed here for 4 nights last week with a friend from college. We were on a budget, so we stayed here. Hotels in San Francisco are very pricey, and this one was by far the best location for the money. Yes, this hotel is outdated. Yes, there is a lady that works there who is not super friendly. The...

I again stayed at the Astoria at the beginning of June 2014 and I had a good stay as usual. Many hotels were expensive or sold out due to an apple app conference but I was able to book a good price on the Hotel Astoria web site (way cheaper than using search engines like Kayak, orbitz, etc). $59 a...
