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

Positive points: - Location; practically in Chinatown - Price; cheap Negative points: - Old building which smells moldy (and tv was almost ready to be replaced) - Elevator only holds 3 people and doesn't feel safe to stand in while it operates Furthermore, they offer a parking space which is $26 for 24h in a valet parking lot one block...

I gave it an extra star for the close proximity to Chinatown and financial area. The rooms are bare bones; mold growing in the bathrooms and on the ceilings. No screens on the windows. The elevator was in poor condition and only 3 people at any time could ride in it.

An extra star for its convenient location close to Chinatown and the port. However, the actual hotel itself is abysmal. Old building with a weird, rotting smell. The blankets had holes in them and wifi was only limited to the lounge room. Breakfast provided was barely minimum and the vending machine was broken!! But it was cheap, and we only... More

We chose the Astoria for its location right next to Chinatown, as we had stayed close by before. Initially we were daunted by the very bare/basic appearance of the foyer and the abrupt manner of the receptionist. Then the lift had me trembling when it shuddered its way to our floor. However the room, although tiny, was very clean and... More

I give this five stars because for me, this is the perfect launch point for a San Francisco adventure. Chinatown is not a place one goes to for five star elegance. Thankfully, Chinatown retains the rough, non-touristy, lived in feel that makes this attraction one of the most authentic visits in the United States. The Astoria reflects this in both... More

Our room was small with old furniture but everything was clean. The staffs were O.K. The price is affordable considering that hotels are very expensive in San Francisco. The area is considered safe; we could easily walk at night to our hotel. Our biggest complain is that it is an old building with thin walls. During each night of our... More

Stayed here with my in-laws while touring San Francisco. It is an old hotel, but I sort of like that...Takes me back to the 1930's, especially after touring Alcatraz. It is literally right next to the entrance to China town which is great to begin your weekend of touring and there is a mini-mart across the street to grab a... More
