The overall opinion is good. The personnel at desk helped with suggestions and even when losing my cell phone -that lately appeared thanks to the Uber driver-. But I´m concerned as a week later my bank account shows that the 200 usd deposit has not been refunded. So for the time being I´m still waiting to see. Daniel

Let us start with the good: The location of the hotel is good; it is only a 10 to 15-minute walk from Market St (Westfields is on Market St.). So location wise I do recommend the place. The owner is friendly and the place is clean. The Internet is not that great but does the job in case you need... More

Every person will have a different perspective and expectation on a hotel. After reading the reviews from many sites, we choose this hotel for the location. Yes, the hotel/rooms were old and outdated but our room was clean with the basic necessities. The staff were pleasant and courteous. We were surprised by the old cage type elevator but not taken...

出張でスタンダードルームを利用ました。 ロケーションはユニオンスクエアにも近く、チャイナタウンなどの散策にも便利でした。 部屋は余計な調度品は無く、テレビ、ベッド、小さめのクローゼットとバスルームという造りです。 シャワーの温度が勝手に勝手に変わってしまうので調節が大変なこと、トイレの水勢が弱いことが気になりました。 季節柄空調が入っておらず寒かったのですが、フロントに伝えると簡易ヒーターを無料で貸し出してくれました。 ルームクリーニングは他の口コミにある通り滞在期間1週間中1回のみでしたが、ビジネスで殆ど外出しており、部屋を散らかしたわけでもなかったので気になりませんでした。 フロントはインド系と思われる方でしたが、どこへ行くにはどう行くのが安全で早い、このエリアには近寄らないほうがいい、などをわかりやすく教えてくれ、このランクのホテルとしてはとてもよいホスピタリティを感じました。 I used a standard room on a business trip, to join to WWDC16. Close to Union Square, also useful to explore the central of city and Chinatown. The room had no extra furnituret, There were a TV, a bed, a small closet, and a bathroom, that's all. It was difficult to adjust temperature... More

If you're looking for luxury, well this hotel is not for you. If you are looking for cheap and good location, then I would highly recommend this place. Don't come in with high expectations. It's a place to sleep. It's not fancy, it's extremely basic. That being said, the location is amazing and couldn't ask for anything better. :)

This should not be called a hotel. It's old, dirty, stinky and service is terrible! Beds are small, couldn't open the window, carpet is dirty, the toilet was never refurbished in the last 30 years!! elevator is creepy and unsafe! Ok, price is cheap for the area but I don't suggest to stay here. The idea of going back and... More

Booked our room through Travelocity over a month in advance. Got to the hotel at 8pm to check-in and get our zzz after our all day tour at Angel Island and Alcatraz. The owner said he canceled our reservations!! It was during San Francisco Marathon so hotels are booked! I was baffled and questioned him. He said that he left... More

Here are few facts missing from your review. You made reservation under different name and provided your credit card information. You provided other person's office telephone number. We made a 2 courtesy call to verify your arrival at noon and 4 p.m. but no response. Hotel policy clearly mentions no reservation with third party credit card will be honored unless... More

It's an old building and shows it. But the staff/owners are lovely and friendly. We've stayed there twice before and it's my choice. The location is fantastic - close to Union Square and the bus into the city is across the street in one direction and back is on the street above. The best breakfast is just over the road... More

San Francisco hotels can be really pricey. At $150 a night, Taylor Hotel was the cheapest in the vicinity of Union square. It was located a few blocks away from union square, the neighborhood was quiet, clean and safe. The hotel attendant was nice and very helpful. Most hotels in SFO do not have airconditioning/heater, this was also true for... More

This place is ridiculous. There's no parking, no free breakfast, and the WiFi sucks. Plus, our TV didn't work. The rooms are tiny and the beds are terrible. They're old metal spring coil beds! Also, the noise from the street is very much a problem; this is definitely not a quiet hotel. Not even a nice hotel.
