On our road trip in the US is this the most expensive hotell of all hotels we are staying at, except the one we are staying at in NY and definitely the worst. You get less than you pay for. We got a tiny tiny room, with a tiny bed (queen size for two) Luckily we are not very big... More

I was held on hold 8 times but when front desk picked up phone 3 times, they just yelled at me wow. First lady picked up the phone I said I would like to confirm my reservation she asked me which hotel. I was confused and thought maybe I called to wrong hotel. I said your hotel "North Beach Hotel".... More

Since we only use hotels to sleep in, this place was perfect for us. Location was perfect for where we wanted to be: a block away from Little Italy and China Town and Peir 39. We didn't mind the shared bathrooms (as long as they were clean).

Good location and good price. Bad smell. The first thing we did was go out and buy a glade plug in and Clorox wipes. No air movement in room and a very bad smell. We were suppose to stay 5 night but left after 2.

Yes, the rooms are small. Yes, some of the bathrooms are dirty. Yes, the streets are loud and noisy, but I am more than happy with my stay!!!! Staff was super friendly and easy going. If the bathroom was dirty, it is because it was recently used so I went down the hall to the next one. Never had a... More

The hotel doesn't have car parking and so we had to park our car in a expensive parking lot.. the only positive thing in the room was the fridge. Very noisy Street.windows didn't have good curtains. Shower and toilets on the hallway.i wouldn't recommend this hotel.the only thing nice is the location

It's San Francisco! It's expensive! But this hotel is a great bargain. It's in a great location. Staff are nice. It has very basic things you need and bathrooms are shared but hey you pay very cheap for it. It doesn't have AC and its gets uncomfortable sometimes at night but what you pay is what you get! Though bathrooms... More

I was a bit sceptIcal after reading reviews but we were pleased we went for this hotel. It is excellent value and a great location if you don't mind the shared bathrooms. No breakfast but the cafe next door is open 24 hours and offers a great breakfast sandwich.

I've stayed here many times over the last decade. It is one of the better budget deals in increasingly expensive San Francisco. The rooms are small, but include a sink, microwave, refrigerator, decent cable TV selection and free WiFi that works well most of the time, but can get a little slow/balky at certain times of the day. The only... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
