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

I stayed at Hotel North Beach Aug 10-14th. I arranged a shuttle from the airport. I arrived at 1pm. The hotel clerk was very professional and accompodating. This was my first "solo" trip and my first stay in a "hostel". I was a bit nervous! I had read the reviews and decided I wanted a city view room close to... More

Well it is a cheap hotel and there are shared toilets and showers, one can expect the the toilet and shower will not be up to tip top condition all the time. In saying that myself and my family never had an issue, it was like a large family living in the one house, you look out for the next.... More

San Fran is super expensive at moment and if you need somewhere to put your bags and sleep a couple of hours it's good enough.. I upgraded to a nicer hotel after its small shared toilets and pretty crapolla all round but for $100 in San Fran it is what it is

The hotel is very simple, with shared bathroom and very small rooms, about 100 USD/night. The prices should be lower, because they dont have a parking and you have to pay another 30 USD for overnight parking!!!

The hotel is situated right next to China Town, which is really great. You can reach the city center by foot in 10 minutes and Pier 39 in about 15 minutes. The hotel itself has rather plain rooms, if you aren't expecting much, it's going to be fine. Unfortunately we had loads of mosquitos inhabiting the little wardrobe in our... More

Want to treat your loved one to a luxurious romantic break in San Francisco? Then go somewhere else. This is the bargain basement end of the market. This place is fine for a solo traveller like me who does not wish to pay upwards of 200 dollars a night. The single room I booked was adequate for the job, clean... More

This hotel is in a great location for a great price. Situated right at the edges of downtown and china town there is lots to do within walking distance. The shared bathrooms reminded me of my college dorm. No A/C and the beds are a bit hard but otherwise a great experience.

If you are asked to have a room with a city view or inside view, say you want a city view. The room we stayed in had an inside view which provides no air flow through the window or wind in the windiest city in America, and with no air cons in the rooms it gets very stuffy and hot.... More

Hotel was average. Front staff very nice. Rooms small and there is a shared bathroom. It was noisy one night but other than that it was fine. Good location!! Be aware that they will give you discounts on busses and stuff...but you need to pay cash :) would probably stay again

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.
