Despite the homeless lining the street who didn't bother us at all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff were terrific especially Bryan,Jackie,Latoya and Shadon. We came from Australia and loved the laid back style and friendly staff. The wine on the terrace in the evening was a fantastic idea. Thankyou for a very enjoyable stay.

Disappointing from the get go. Very rude lady on check in. We just landed from a flight from Australia and there was no hot water (that continued the entire day). A fridge would have been very nice. Wouldn't stay again

There is a homeless shelter around the corner from this hotel which means there are a lot of homeless people sleeping on the streets day and night with police trying to move them on. Along with harmless homeless people are the drug addicted ones too and their dealers. The free breakfasts provided by the hotel started out okay on day...

What an amazing hotel! Before we booked the hotel we read the reviews and well aware of the homeless people situation. But considering the location and many people commented how clean and comfy it is and also they run free shuttle prequently we decided to give it a go.

San Francisco is a fantastic city with lots to see and do, the Cova hotel is well plainly a few blocks from Union Sq. The hotel is very clean and well maintained but is no longer in the best part of town. My dad stayed here with the RAF in the 1950s and since then the area has got a...

I start saying this hotel has a kind and helpful female staff. Its location is one of its weakest points, even though it's close to some attractions, lots of homeless and junkies live in its surroundings which makes it scary to walk around during the day/night. Room was cozy. Breakfast needs improvements. Frisco is an expensive city and this hotel...

This is a great hotel. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfy & great sized bathrooms. The staff are very friendly and really awesome. The breakfast at the restaurant next door is pretty decent. The location is pretty good. Only a 10 - 15 minute walk from Union Square, down town and tram transport to Fisherman's Wharf. The Cova Hotel...
