This is one of those boutique hotels which means it's an old building brought up to code with few amenities meant for young broke intellectual travelling couples on a budget. I got this place bundled with a flight on a Priceline deal. The main thing you should realize about this place is you are in the heart of downtown, a five minute walk to the MUNI/BART station. You will not need a car for anything. The location is the key. The building itself is kind of nice. Small but modernly updated lobby. Front desk staff ok. I took the old sliding door kind of elevator up to my room and of course the first thing one notices is the bed literally takes up three quarters of the tiny room but that's ok. The TV sucks but that's ok too. As for climate control forget about it. Nothing seems to work as the place as old as it is, is also very stuffy. When fiddling with the temperature control I gave up and just opened the damn window. That worked perfectly. I had a room with a shower/tub/toilet and they served their function. There are rooms that have a shared bathroom/toilet thing located in the hallways on each floor. This is not as bad of a set up as one may think. It will also shave a good amount from the room bill so consider that. There's an old retro 30s designed kind of restaurant on premisis, they also do a "wine tasting(?)" Neither of which I indulged in. Remember the key here is location. Very much recommended.
