“Charming, relaxing getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We just spent two wonderful days at the Andrews Hotel in San Francisco. The building is historic, and so is the elevator, but that just added to its charm. The gracious touches of fresh flowers in our room, complimentary chocolates, and glass of wine each night were very welcome, and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The onsite restaurant, Fino, serves delicious food, and it was very nice to be able to dine there after a busy day of sightseeing. We opted for the smallest room, so did not expect much space, but we enjoyed our time there tremendously. Location is terrific, just two blocks from Union Square and the cable car line.

We stayed here for 3 nights, staff were friendly and hotel was clean, room was on the small side but I expect that with city hotels. However, the bathroom was a bit of a let down, old fashioned, poorly decorated, old and quirky are fine but this was just old. Breakfast was OK, nothing fantastic, juice, cereal, croissant, coffee and some fresh fruit. It's position in SF good, not far from Powell St BART, close to Chinatown and shopping if you like that sort of thing. Had dinner the first night in Finos, effectively the hotel restaurant, was very busy and food was good, would recommend reserving a table if you plan to eat there on your first night.

Small and charming....we were out and about during our stay so it was nice to be near Union Square. Safe neighborhood. Nice touch in lobby with Citris water, coffee, etc. Free breakfast of coffee and Danish, croissants, juice. Free glass of wine after five. Not too far from Bart train so we walked.and used public trans throughout San Francisco area. Room was small but comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom. If you want luxury hotel, it doesn't work but it was perfect for us and the price was great!!!! Staff were extremely helpful. Recommend for sure!!

The Andrews looks quaint and like a boutique hotel from the outside. The inside is quite different. I am used to staying in older San Francisco hotels, so I know the rooms can be small and sometimes a little funky, but this place gave us the creeps. I will say that it was clean, but the beds were SO uncomfortable. We could feel the springs in the bed. The guy at the front desk was a little unwelcoming. They had a nice little continental breakfast, so for that and the fact that the room was clean, I gave it a two rating instead of one, but I won't be staying here again, ever.

The Andrews is just two blocks from Union Square (uphill, though), so location is not a problem. Haven't had issues with the size of the room (a bit small sized, but not tiny). Staff was ok but not particularly friendly. Breakfast included is also a plus, even though lacks variety.

Lack of A/C wasn't a problem as well. Room was very clean, no complaints about that. Only problem we had was related to street noise at night.

I'd surely be back if on a budget.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The wife and I stayed at this hotel in August 2012. We really enjoyed our stay while we were here. The building itself was erected in 1905 (obviously remodeled since) which gives it some of that historic charm. The hotel is clean and our rooms were cleaned everyday. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the fact that our continental breakfast was served on our floor so it was a quick walk to grab my coffee, fruit and pastry and back to my room.

The location is about 2 blocks from Powell street and 6 blocks from some good shopping and the BART/metro.
