Initially very disappointed after entering our room, Alley cats in the area would have no problems as there was no chance of any of them being swung in it.. It was described as a 'Studio with Queen bed' but really it is a room for one person.. there is literally no more than 2 feet between the bed and the walls..and the window looks right onto.. the parking alleyway.. after we lay on the bed for 5 minutes we realised how Monty Python everything was as he worked out how we could get past each other as we moved about.. I assigned my Wife 4 square feet on her side and same for my side.. then I said 'This is silly' so I went to reception and requested a move.. there was no problem at all with this the staff very polite they said they full at the time a room would become free later in the day- just told us to put everything back in our cases and they would take care of it..So we went off for the day to see the sights and when we got back, reported to reception who gave us the keys to room 27.. what a difference, plenty of room here and very comfortable. They had moved all our stuff there for us. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and we were impressed. This is an old Hotel, but the rooms have a nice retro look, apart from the modern electronics you could almost be in a hotel room out of a 1940's movie.. but we liked that..Facilities are excellent, the room has a Fridge, Microwave and coffee machine and even cutlery in the cabinet. Bathroom large enough, there is a hair dryer and they also provide an Iron and Ironing board. A continental breakfast was included and this gives you the option of Bagels, boiled eggs, cereal fresh fruit of all kinds, different breads and even cake and cookies (We do not tend to eat those at breakfast in the UK so interesting).. the lady on duty in the breakfast room very nice. They have a restaurant called 'Plaj' I believe this is a concession and not owned by the Hotel.. must say I found the menus a bit pretentious and expensive so did not bother . We had a couple of drinks in there and chatted to the nice Bar Tender but again felt the prices were high. The Hotel is in Fulton St just next to City Hall.. it is a short walk to Van Ness and to the Muni and other transport stops.. walk up Van Ness till you reach Sutter St walk to the left and you are in another very interesting part of Sna Francisco, Japan Town, with its pagoda and many Sushi bars and Japanese themed stores. Turn left out side the Hotel, down Fulton, to Gough, then right at Market St till you hit Dolores street and you will find a hidden Gem of San Francisco, the Mission Delores, the oldest building in the city (1775) five bucks to get in and a bargain..
All in all a lovely little hotel, with comfortable beds, friendly and welcoming staff, and I would highly recommend it.
