“What a score!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We are still pinching ourselves over finding this gem, so close to the business we had to do and all the wonderful amenities of the city. The staff was so helpful and room was delightful. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room at the back was quieter..no view for sure, though.

We arrived early at the hotel and our room was ready which is always a bonus. The hotel is in a fantastic location! Just 1 block from Union Square and a short walk to the cable cars and Market street. The hotel is in an old building but has been fully renovated and was modern, welcoming and trendy. The staff at the front desk were very helpful, offering us a map with directions to the cable car so we could get down to Fisherman's Wharf and a complimentary drink at the neighboring bar.

The only negative about the hotel was the size of the room... I even called down to the front desk to make sure we had the right room as it was very, very small! I expected something a little larger... The room barely fit a queen size bed (an Australian double) and a chaise lounge. The bathroom was also very small with very little bench space, definitely not room enough for 2 people in there at the same time. If you've ever stayed in a Parisian hotel, this is what you should expect.

We were only in the city for a short time and hardly spent any time in the room as there is so much to see in the city so it didn't affect our time there in a negative way at all.

Advice when booking - book one of the more expensive rooms for the much needed addition space.

Room Tip: If you are travelling as a couple definitely choose a more expensive room for the additional space.

This was our first stay in San Francisco and we chose to stay in the Union Square area so we picked Hotel Abri based on Trip Advisor reviews. The lobby was very nice, trendy. Had iPads on the wall to use to search for restaurants and things to do, very nice touch!
We got upgraded to an oasis suite which was very nice, way more room than the two of us needed. There was a nice sized living room, bathroom and bedroom.
The one negative I had with the hotel was the complimentary wifi, it was really bad. Had to pay $6 to use a better wifi which was still pretty bad. For $300/night I expected much better.
The cable car turnaround was only one block away - was great when we were heading up to Fisherman's Wharf.

If you want a great location in San Francisco, stay at the Hotel Abri. Everything is close by - shopping, Chinatown, Union Square, the BART, cable cars, etc. We had a rental car with us that we didn't need in San Francisco, and had the Valet take it overnight for $40. The front desk staff were very helpful and very friendly. Our room was incredibly clean. We stayed in a King Suite and loved it (albeit we spend way more time exploring the city).

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor, corner room, King Suite. It was an amazing room with a separate king...

First off, the location of this hotel is awesome. A block off the famous cable cars & easy access to BART & MUNI makes this spot great as a base for touring the city. Walking distance to Chinatown, Union Square, Nob Hill, good restaurants,& more.

Hotel Abri is in an older building which gives it charm but also means a smaller hotel room. I had read reviews about noise so I requested a quiet room. We were given an interior room on the 4th floor that had a window out to an interior atrium. Basically you only look out at other windows but at least it was quiet & allowed for sunlight in the room. The bed was comfortable with a good shower & bathroom setup. The only negative was the musty odor that almost knocked us over when we first entered. We had a window AC unit running with the window open which helped clear the smell but if you are bothered by that, keep it in mind. Another nice plus at check in was a coupon for a complimentary glass of champagne from the restaurant bar. There was always a crowd at the restaurant so it makes a nice option for business travelers to have a good meal close to their hotel. I would definitely return. Nice option with a reasonable cost at a great location.

Room Tip: Interior rooms are quiet while you still get a window to open & brighten your room.

We stayed for 3 days to attend a conference at Moscone South. Location is awesome. Few minutes walk from the convention center.

Although many reviewers complained of the street noise, staying at the higher floors on the side street (Cyril Magnin St), I did not have any issue. Some minimal street noise from emergency vehicles was present, but bed was very comfortable and I slept well even with moderate jet lag after 15 hour flight.

Room was small, but renovated with nice cozy decor.

Lots of eating choices around it, Westfield shopping center right across the street. The downstairs restaurant Puccini & Pinetti was great with very efficient and and extremely nice bartender.

Enjoyed the stay.

Excellent hotel staff, very friendly and helpful. Even before we arrived Wilmer was extremely helpful with phone inquiries and all staff were courteous and helpful during our 6 night stay. Special mention to Wilmer and Dinesh at the reception desk. Room was spacious, comfortable king bed. Excellent location. Near Union Square and Moscone convention centre. Close to public transportation. Great Italian restaurant on site with equally friendly staff. Would definitely return to this hotel again. Great hospitality service!
