I've been using timeshare for 30 years and this is a great place. High standard of accommodation coupled with good service. We had never been to San Francisco before and were delighted to find this place is right in the centre of things with a cable car stop outside the apartment. Hop on to go down the hill to the...

The place is wonderful and very well located. Just be aware that one of the buildings has no elevator and if you are assigned a room on the upper floors it can be quite tiring to climb the stairs several times a day and more if it is with luggage since there are nobody to take them to the room....

Stayed for three nights after Labor Day. Stayed in the main building where check-in occurs. The building has an elevator and a beautiful large staircase to reach the above three floors of rooms. We stayed in a single room with a queen bed, with a large bathroom and a small kitchen area with two electric burners, a small refrigerator/freezer and...

I travel to SF every year and Pwell Place is a home away from home. The rooms are comfortable and spacious especially for SF. Everything inside you have everything you need including kitchen.

Excellent location, three cable lines in same block. The staff always attentive and helpful. The suite featured an ample bedroom, living room with a couch-bed, a full equipped kitchen and a spacious terrace. I just reduced my review 1 point because the bathroom was located in the bedroom instead of the living room.

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.
