Had an amazing stay at Cova and especially loved the rooftop patio! Shuttle service to and from anywhere you would want to visit in the City plus breakfast at the restaurant in front of the hotel. The staff was quite lively and entertaining as well as friendly and knowledgeable.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in September and loved the room. Very spacious with kitchenette, king bed, sofa, and a HUGE bathroom. We loved having a drink on the roof top patio at night. We had a great night sleep and we will be back.

Approximately a 15/20 min from the Golden Gate Bridge - typical tourist attraction! But even better, the hotel runs a free shuttle throughout the day to get you to numerous locations. Staff are friendly and more than happy to help - big shout out to Tara who was especially amazing! Rooms are lovely and perfect for couples/solos/friends/families!
