I stayed here one night, on the second floor, in room 114. Like the title says, it is a no frills room. There is just the basics. You have a bed, a table, a chair, a flat screen tv on the wall, really no other room decorations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room looks over the garden/patio. It was very quiet and there was virtually no street noise. There was noise from the restaurant however. The noise from the restaurant actually woke me up on Wednesday morning at 7:00 am. It is okay because I wanted to be up early but could be a problem if one wanted to sleep in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is just fine. I have seen more "homeless" and "panhandlers" in Union Square and Nob Hill. This neighborhood is primarily younger (20s - 30s) I would stay here again.
