Neighborhood
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.

This hotel was adequate and it was close to the Wharf. The room itself was a little too cramped but we just needed it to sleep, so we didn't mind the close quarters. The price was reasonable and the staff was great. The room was clean and it had a fridge and microwave. I would

Really great location close to Fisherman's Wharf and restaurants within walking distance. The room was very large and roomy as we had two queen beds and plenty of room. Having free parking was a great bonus.

The hotel is near to Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, so the location is great. Also, the prices are cheaper compare with the other hotels of the zone. The attitude of the staff is not empathic and the “breakfast” is the same all the days: bread with banana. If you don’t have

The area is great, very close to the ocean and the Piers. Free parking included. Room was very basic but Ok for a few days's stay. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Tourist districts are also very close. Recommended for its price in San Francisco.

how's the car parking situation?
Parking is free, but I'd say they only have about 15 spots. I got there early and it wasn't a problem, but it filled up fast. It's one of the last hotels in the Wharf area with free parking that I know of.

"I guess any room is acceptable"
"Try and get a room on the north side, they might be brighter."
"Choose a room away from the street."
"Try to get a room on the highest level to avoid noise from the street."
"The street is noisy and you will hear the buses, emergency vehicles, people and if that bothers you don't go to San Francisco."
