My partner and I stayed at 24 Henry this summer, opting for the master bedroom so we could have a private bath. The location is excellent, if you want to be in the Castro. Very easy to walk everywhere you need to.
I can only echo all the kind things that have been said about Walter.
Perhaps most useful would be to compare it to Inn on Castro which is just a couple blocks away, where we stayed just a year ago. In comparison, 24 Henry is an older property and has had more wear and tear. It's tastefully decorated and clean, but the door knobs are getting loose, and it just feels a bit old. Having said that we felt very comfortable there. Inn on Castro was newer, breakfast was better, but the management treated us indifferently on the best days and rudely on the worst days. Inn on Castro is also a bit pricier.
You get what you pay for, and when it comes to customer service, 24 Henry definitely gave us better vibes than Inn on Castro.
