The hotel is nice, but be aware that the neighborhood is sketchy, especially along Ellis Street. The rooms are awesome. However, if you are traveling alone, I would not recommend this hotel. If you choose to stay here, remember to ask the hotel receptionist of an alternative route to the city center. There's a shuttle, but remember to reserve it... More

A great value on a very nice hotel, the remodeling is "first class" the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was great, wonderful bedding and quite. The only down-side was this property is NOT ADA (Americans with Disability Act) compliant...! My 81 year old mother needs a walker to get around, help and assistant with bathing, and can... More

We stayed here in November. It was 4 lads on a little sight seeing trip of San Fran. We were a bit wary of the location of the hotel after reading other reviews but it caused us no problems. The staff were amazingly friendly and always greeted us with a smile, even when we did come in a little drunk... More

This Hotel was clean, quiet, and good value for the money. The location is in the "Tenderloin" and isn't the nicest area of town however, during the day, it is safe to walk around town alone. We walked around at night too. We just weren't stupid and or flashy. The hotel itself is safe. An access card is required to... More

I can't say enough about the Cova Hotel--I stayed from Jan-Feb 2010 and had an exceptional experience, mostly due to the excellent staff, friendliness and willingness of managers/front desk to accomodate my extended stay. It is beautifully refurbished, and for my needs as a traveling researcher it was perfect. Beds were clean, comfortable, down comforters and pillows of different heights... More

The hotel itself is beautiful, the employees were all really friendly, especially the two front desk clerks (Armando and Veronica). They were really helpful and pretty much told us where to walk and not walk. The area around the hotel could be improved, the area is very close to union square, civic center, and nob hill; but there is a... More
