1 helpful staff member. A lady at reception 17th September. All other staff a mixture of ignorant to indifferent. Upgraded kindly to an exec suite. Room not fit to be called an exec suite. The name creates expectations which fall short of the mark. Especially the dated small bathroom. The lifts need upgrading. And the restaurant attached has decent food... More

I was really worried about staying here when i read other reviews. But it's ok. It's clean enough and housekeeping are very good.The staff on reception were helpful. It has a bar attached which quite a few Hotels in the area don't. Each room has it's own bathroom and ours worked perfectly well. Most buildings are old in San Francisco... More

While the rating is average, I must say I found this to be a hotel in a very good location, at the right price for an expensive city and worth staying at. There are so many options to choose from on where to eat and what to see in the area. While an older hotel, it served is well and... More

The hotel is in a really great location close to Union Square. It was a clean and comfortable stay, the hotel is a little old fashioned but the room was spacious and the bathroom was decent. Very good wifi reception.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Appreciate that it is an old hotel, however it was extremely clean and situated in a perfect location for our shops, eateries etc. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

I'm pretty tolerant but there is no way I could leave this hotel and not let you all know. I stayed 1 night of the 4 I was meant to. I'm on business and am used to staying in everything from AirBnB to aparthotels. Dirty, dusty, broken and smelly. My first room was uninhabitable and the second not much better.... More

We picked this hotel on cost and location alone. The location is ideal on the corner of 5th and mission street so you can walk to town, trams, Chinatown and the port if you feel energetic. The hop on bus was 10 minutes away. The hotel looks dated from the inside and out. Our room was ok, a very comfy... More

Stayed here for 1 night and i was a bit afraid that it would be a disaster reading all the negative comments, but it was not bad at all! We had a good room. It was clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was very small though but the shower and hair dryer were good. The only down side... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
