It was very noisy, the room had no heater so we froze at night, no extra blankets. The window faced an alley. There were people fighting at night, crack heads talking to themselves, it was insane. We did not get any sleep. On top check out time is at 10am, which is too early.

The staff were behind screens at all times. No night tables, no phone in room, no wifi, no coffee maker, no one made the bed or change the towels. The bathroom was dirty. No screens on windows. I definitely will not stay at this hotel again. The only positive is that the hotel is in a central location, within walking... More

Hotel is in the city center, that's the positives, everything else is negative. It is old building, smell bad, relatively clean, but I feel like something bite me at the whole time. There is hot water and the towels was good and clean. There isn't daily services - nobody clean our room. We are on the sixth floor and there... More

This was my sixth time to stay in a Hotel close to Union square. As every year I go to a conference to San Francisco, I'm familiar with the area and several hotels around Union Square. My experience with Taylor hotel was the worst one in last 6 years. First it was extremely overpriced. More than $140 per night! Surprisingly... More

Quite an old hotel but kept pretty well. Great location being so close to the center of the city. Lift is very old fashioned. If the gates are not in place, the lift won't work. Had to walk up a couple of times to the floor the lift was stuck on as someone was tardy and left the gate open.... More

Yuck, yuck, yuck! I was supposed to stay 3 nights but left after one. The staff are incredibly rude and unhelpful. The room was absolutely filthy with hair in the bed and I got bitten by fleas in the carpet. The whole place also smells of urine. Avoid!

I'm pretty easy going when it comes to hotel rooms, and have no problem with "basic" but this hotel redefines the definition. I stayed here for 4 days and didn't want to pay the $200+ a night that the rest of the hotels in the area were charging. The price was by far the cheapest of any hotel in this... More

Be prepared to get depressed by the colour of the walls in the room. They are the worst kind of yellow you can get in a badly lit room. The only thing that works in favour of this place is its location- I do not think that the low price works in its favour at all. The rooms are not... More

Do not expect luxury such as bedside lamp, hair dryer or maid service every day (but every second day). The room has ghastly yellow coloured walls, a noisy ceiling fan and absolutely no charm. It seems clean enough though. We were upgraded from "basic" to "standard" I do not know the difference, but maybe the basic one does not have... More
