I'm not usually one to complain, however our stay at the Herbert Hotel in San Francisco went from bad to worse... Upon arrival we were checked in and given keys someone else's room... Simple mistake, however slightly alarming... The room was small, but not a major issue as we weren't planning on really spending much time there. Once settled went downstairs to be greeted by a different receptionist and asked if we could be given a second set of keys. No checking of identification just, "what room number are you in?" and just handed them over...once again level of security was alarming.
We arranged for shared bathroom, however a little surprised that there was only 1 shower and 1 toilet shared across a whole floor (the shower smelt as if someone had been using it as a toilet)... not ideal...
We were hit with the fire alarms going off, not once, but twice throughout the evening which was extremely frustrating (both occasions advised that it was a false alarm). Wifi Access only available on the 2nd floor (which was not worth using as it was constantly glitching) however there was a cable in the room to plug in (which didn't work).
Room was stuffy uncomfortable at night and the beds rather uncomfortable. The only real benefit was the great location. After the 2nd night we moved to a hostel around the corner for half the price and much better atmosphere. Wouldn't stay there again.
