“Great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Decent hotel. Amazing location. Very friendly staff. Clean. We asked for a room not facing the street, and I think this was a good choice. While the hotel is not amazing, it is cute, and a pleasant place to stay, and I hope they succeed. I would have liked more: 1) soap in the bathroom (the maid left us one for the 5 days, we had to ask for more; 2) better television -- the TV was challenging to use; 3) more consistent wifi. However, these were manageable problems. Again, the staff and location can't be beat.

Stayed here during a conference being held at the mega hotel Hilton up the block from Abri. Glad I chose the Abri, medium sized, clean hotel in a Union Square central location. My room was small but perfectly formed and the walk-in shower was powerful. My room had a strange smell to it during my stay which meant I had to have the window open most of the time for fresh air. Ask for an inner room to avoid noise from the busy street outside.

I visited SF about 5 years ago so was shocked at the amount of homeless people everywhere this time round. Every street corner was filled with people begging so be prepared to have your dollar bills ready.

Breakfast downstairs in the restaurant was good. Great shopping near by. Enjoy!

I stayed there over a weekend and there's a club across the street that is very noisy well into the night and early morning. My windows were closed, but it was so noisy I would have sworn they were open. On my last night, a Sunday, it was quiet. I'd recommend getting a room on the other side of the hotel if it's a Friday or Saturday.

Other than that one shortcoming, I was very happy with the hotel. It's an excellent location, especially for proximity to Moscone. The room was a good size, the bathroom was very big and offered lots of counter space and shelving. Bathroom lighting was good, but I could have used more light while shaving.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the lobby is well-appointed and makes a great first impression. There's a good restaurant attached to the hotel, and lots of other choices nearby.

Considering SF prices, I thought the hotel was a very good value.

Room Tip: Don't get a room in the front of the hotel on a Friday or Saturday night.

Met a friend here after our first choice hotel was booked. This has a modern vibe, is located near enough to Union Square and has a friendly staff. Rooms and bathrooms are smallish and face courtyard. Would stay again.

Hotel's location is in the middle of it all. Right next to union square where you can access all the shops, but at the same time far away enough from the crowds. Had an interior room so no issues with noise. Rooms were kind of small but the building is obviously older and that can be expected in the city. Bed was very comfortable tho. Enjoyed the modern feel.

This was a very nice find for us. Spent 3 days in the city and wanted to be close to Union Square. It was very clean and well decorated. The rates for being in the city were very reasonable.We stayed in a an interior room to avoid any street noise. The little Italian restaurant restaurant right below the hotel was nice, the bartender in the evening was funny and enjoyable. We'll stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay in an interior room away from the street to avoid noise.

I stayed at Hotel Abri for 4 nights in April this year. The hotel has a lovely warm atmosphere and a style that blends its age with contemporary features. The lobby has ipads for guest use, an open fire and easy access to the bar/restaurant next door. I found the staff to be incredibly helpful; Eddie in particular, went out of his way to make sure I was comfortably accommodated. When I asked to change rooms due to the smell from the bread baking next door, the staff were exceptionally understanding and relocated me quickly. I booked a King suite and the extra space was great. The room featured a sitting area with TV, desk and couch and a separate bedroom and bathroom. There was plenty of space for storage of my bags (I did a lot of shopping) and the bed was really comfy. I was located at the back of the hotel so the room was very quiet. The location of the hotel is great for access to transport, a short walk to Union Square and close to shops and SFMOMA, (I certainly made the most of the tempting proximity of a Sephora store just around the corner)! I would definitely recommend Hotel Abri; I liked the charm of its age and the discreet but friendly attention of the staff. My only disappointment was the busy bar next door - it was very hard to get a seat/table so I was turned away a few times during my stay and as I was travelling alone, this was a bit frustrating for me. However it meant that I had to venture further afield so not all bad.
Overall a really good choice for accommodation in San Fran.
