After our airbnb host ripped us off, we were looking for a CHEAP alternate since the city is so expensive. The staff are really friendly and helpful. They have their rules, none of which we have a problem with, and a steep $250 deposit, but our room is clean. I like old buildings like this and find the various stairways... More

I read a few reviews here which contained good and bad reviews. I ended up deciding to stay here because it was cheap and I wanted to spend my money on a day trip instead. First impressions: My taxi ride there was a bit rough. My taxi driver said the hotel was between the nice and crappy (he used another... More

On May 27th, I called the hotel in the afternoon to explain that I would not be checking in until after midnight, and the man who... More

I don't typically write reviews nor do I rely on them but this place is really bad. Staff is disorganized and very rude. Rooms are fine but not exactly nice. Price guided my choice. That being said, these guys are jerks and I don't recommend supporting them.

Location of this hotel is very close to union square. Very safe because front entrance door is always secured. Reception staff were very kind and polite especially Robin and Saed. They did their best to make our accommodations a great experience. We will consider this hotel again when we comeback. Our room was clean , with fridge and microwave. Thank... More

I was even offered a free upgrade on my room without asking the second time i stayed there. The location is prime, just a 5 min walk... More

My friend and I visited San Francisco to attend a 49ers game and wanted to spend as little money as possible on our living accommodations since we would spending out and about. Looking back, we should have not done this. We purchased a double room, assuming it was a room with two beds as it looked in the pictures. It... More
