This a basic Hotel with very small rooms and not much in the way of amenities. The staff are friendly and there is a small tea/coffee area. However, it is a great location in town. Can walk to ballpark, Fisherman's Wharf and to city shops.

I just spent 5 nights at the Urban and loved my stay I spend a few months researching hotels as I had to keep the costs down and there seems to be allot of very cheap but dodgy hotels in SFO I came across the Urban hotel and ended up taking a punt on it, and glad I did! The rooms are very basic but along with the bathrooms are absolutely spotless and well maintained. The street noise can be loud so bring some ear plugs if that is going to bother you. The hotel has a brilliant location an easy walk to Market Street ( the main hub of the CBD ) Union Square and even Fisherman's Wharf is achievable. The Staff are wonderful, Very friendly and happy to answer questions. A great bonus is that they will store your bags if you have a late flight out. If your going to be out and about all day and just somewhere clean and basic to base yourself this hotel is perfect!

I stayed at Urban hotel for 11 days and couldn't have picked a better hotel for my first visit to San Francisco. The hotel is located next to the Chinatown gate and it is very easy to walk through Chinatown to Pier 39 and continue all the way along the beach to the Golden Gate etc. The shopping street Market street is just couple of blocks away, so are all the high end boutiques. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and bars to choose from. Also the tour bus company is just few blocks away if one is interested in taking a day trip to Carmel and Monterey. The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming. The hotel is very clean and there is fresh scent. The room attendants do amazing job. The shower and restroom are on the hall but there was never queue. They were also impeccable. I stayed in one person's room and it was spacious enough. The bed was comfortable. Even though the hotel is very centrally located it was quiet at least on the 3rd floor where I stayed. I liked the fact that there is refrigerator in the room so one could bring own sandwiches and beverages etc. to the room and watch tv while eating. They also have complimentary coffee, orange juice and popcorn at the common kitchen area in lobby.

I spent five nights at The Urban whilst attending a conference at the Moscone Center. The price was the main selling point as it was affordable and within walking distance of the conference center, downtown and the Ferry Building. The area felt reasonably safe for a woman travelling alone and there were a lot of really good restaurants nearby. The hotel itself was incredibly basic. The room was very small, and a full size fridge/freezer took up a large amount of room, as well as making quite a lot of noise. The WiFi was great however, the bathrooms were always clean, and I never had to queue to use the showers. Would stay again for convenience but wouldn't recommend spending a lot of time here!

Good location, near China town. Very clean shared bathrooms. No air conditioning although they had fans. Couldn’t sleep due to the heat. The reception staff looked bored and were unfriendly. Free tea, coffee, juice and popcorn
