My husband and I stayed at the SW Hotel for 2 nights - the hotel staff is friendly and welcoming, and the hotel was very clean and well kept. The continental breakfast in the morning is pretty limited (toasts, muffins, fruit) but it's much more than what you get at other SF hotels (nothing). We found the location to be... More

Located right on the edge of Chinatown and Little Italy. Very many great restaurants and bars close by, easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf and financial district, great bus access by hotel. Very clean with great staff. Request a quiet room as we did.

Located just at the north edge of China town. Looks horrible on the outside. Inside is recently refurbished. Everything clean, but nothing glamorous. Not to be expected at the price either. Very nice and helpful staff. Simple but surviveable breakfast.

When my sister and I planned our trip to San Francisco, we were drawn to the reasonable rates and location of the SW Hotel, and we weren't disappointed. It is easily one of the cleanest hotels in which I've stayed, and the service was terrific. Friendly staff gave us food and transportation recommendations, and it was a brief walk to... More

The SW Hotel was a nice hotel in a great location. I would recommend it to anyone and I would stay there again. The hotel room is simple, but has everything you need. The room is very clean. The bed was comfortable. There is a TV and mini fridge. The bathroom was nice. The TV only has 13 channels, but... More

The SW hotel is quite unassuming from the outside, but you enter into a smart lobby with helpful staff. Our room was compact, but everything we needed (clever storage in the bed frame was more than enough). The hotel is in China town, but within easy walking distance to little Italy, so there's loads of places to chose from. We... More

Unforgettable weekend in San Francisco where we caught the Year of the Monkey Chinese New Year Parade. SW - or Sam Wong - Hotel was perfect. Situated on the edge of Chinatown with restaurants and bars nearby, a few steps away from Little Italy. We would have a sumptuous Chinese meal followed by a Canoli and red wine down the... More

We just returned from San Fransisco where we stayed at the SW Hotel for eleven nights. We were very happy with the service. Small, clean and well maintained hotel. On the boundary between Little Italy and Chinatown it provided lots of restaurant and bar options. We purchased City Passes which included seven days unlimited access to San Fransisco's very efficient... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
