“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My fiance and I stayed there for 2 nights for a quick weekend getaway. Great location, short walk to the union square. The hotel has a charming and quaint european style with some history in it. Love the old style elevator.
Jody - at front desk - is GREAT lady. Very nice, polite and helpful.
Complimentary breakfast in the morning was a nice and yummy touch. Complimentary wine in the late afternoon was great as well.

The only drawback was the window in the room is not very well insulated hence you can hear outside noises quite clearly i.e: car alarms, trucks and trash bins. Friday night and Saturday nights are the noisiest.

Other than that, it's a GREAT hotel.

Room Tip: Asked for a room away from the street or alleys to avoid outside noises.

Booked this at the last minute and got a decent rate. Lovely little hotel very close to Union Square. The room is tiny but that was fine with me. Amazingly comfortable bed! Some people have commented on the thin walls. My room was right next to the elevator and I hardly heard a thing.

This hotel has tons of personality and charm!

This hotel is still family run and is excellent if you like old and original features (an amazing lift that is nearly 100 years old). If you like modern and homogenous then stay elsewhere. I am a poor sleeper and was worried about city noise but not a problem as it was relatively quiet on the 7th floor - the only noise coming part way through my long weekend when a noisy woman in the opposite room was only capable of slamming her door and using her mobile in the hallway but there we go - hotels can't be responsible for fellow travellers breach of etiquette. This hotel is in an ideal location on Post Street with Union Square, shops and cable cars in close proximity. It also has the benefit of a lovely Italian restaurant on the ground floor handy if you are jet lagged and/or exhausted after sightseeing and shopping - but you will need to book as Fino's is rightly very popular. I was travelling on my own so squeezed in at the bar and had a lovely supper two nights in a row. The bar is also the place to enjoy your complimentary glass of wine between 5.30 and 6.30 which is a very nice touch. My room was clean and comfortably furnished and the bed was lovely and comfortable too. The bathroom was laughably small which could be a problem for some - I just admired the ingenuity of getting a shower, loo and sink in the same sized footprint as the wardrobe. One real bonus is that continental breakfast is served each morning on each floor so no need to get fully dressed just be decently covered and grab what you want to enjoy breakfast in bed with the TV on. The front desk staff are lovely and helpful and I really enjoyed my weekend at The Andrews.

Loved this hotel. It's old world charm, combined with great central location was a big plus. A short stroll to Union Square and all the tours and restaurants was great. The area seemed a bit seedy at first, but not at all after the first hour. It has a fabulous Italian restaurant downstairs that was amazing food at not a bad price too. The breakfast outside our door each morning was a lovely touch, and the price was certainly right. Mainly this is just a good, clean, comfortable place to stay right in the heart of the city.

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!!
