As the title suggests, this is a pretty no-frills hotel. However, if you are on a budget and all you are planning to do is sleep here (and be out for most of the day), this will be good enough.
Location: The hotel is only a few blocks away from Union Square (where there are many shops, restaurants, etc). It is also in close proximity to many bus stops which will take you to different tourist spots (Golden Gate, etc - although you will need at least one bus transfer to get to most of these). It is also a short walk (about 20 minutes) from China Town. Geary Street on the left of the hotel (after a block) is nice, there are many restaurants and shops. However, to the right of the hotel - it gets a little bit sketchier.
Room: Was clean and I liked how there was a ceiling light, rather than just lamps (as has been the case with many of the hotels I've stayed at). There is a timer on the light in the bathroom - i think this is for environmentally friendly reasons. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is no AC, only a ceiling fan, but that was fine for us.
Service: I was not a big fan of the customer service here. The staff behind the desk were often skyping or watching things on their laptops. This did not appear very professional - however, we had no major issues in particular with them.
Other: Wifi is descent, and there is good Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant across the street from the hotel. The food was delicious and quite authentic.
