Very simple, there is not neither a vending/soda machine. The parking lot is $35 per night and the front desk personal... using headphones connected to a mobile phone... It sounded strange for me. The floor is made of wood and you can hear clearly what the guests in the upper apartment are doing. The water temperature of the shower was... More

We stayed there from July 22th to the 23rd and had bed bugs in our room! The first one we saw was in my friend's hair after she was laying in her bed for a while!!! After looking closer, we found a couple more on the beds. It was so disgusting and we went straight to the front desk. They... More

I was nervous about this stay since there were mixed reviews. Overall, the Inn met our needs and I have no complaints. The room and hotel were clean, but a little worn. There is no A/C but this wasn't a problem with the cool bay breezes. As mentioned by others, there is some noise from the bar downstairs, but not... More

No Parking!!!!! Really? We did managed by parking on the street, but it means circling a bit to find a free parking at evening and watching the signs to see if it's a free night or a cleaning night. The room was small, had a smell, the bathroom is dated, well, you get the picture. Wroth it for less than... More

I should have read the fine print better before booking. This hotel was clean but no A/C. Luckily, San Francisco weather was bearable when we opened the windows. Unfortunately, since the windows were open, the noise from the street was really disturbing. Construction going on the building across the street made for lots of noise early in the morning. So...

Should have looked at the pics. Nasty place. They charge your card when you make the reservation so you can't get a refund once you see the poor quality of the place. Worst stay ever! Old, smelly, brown water out of the pipes, no coffee in rooms, old old furniture. We even checked the beds for bugs before we slept... More

Hotel was clean and in a relatively safe area of San Francisco. Price was good for a place where rents cost more than most people make in a month. In the morning we had a good cup of coffee a delicious croissant and blueberry muffin. San Francisco is not so great but this place was pretty darn good.

If you are looking at this place as a cheap alternative to something more upmarket, it is a comfortable place to stay, and the price competitive . The rooms have decent bathrooms, showers, and the beds are clean and comfortable, they are equipped with iron, and ironing board. There is a fair amount of noise that can be heard from... More

Our daughter was air lifted to UCSF Medical Center. Before we left Seattle, to drive to be with her, we called the hospital for hotel recommendations in the area. They suggested ABVI in SOMA. I called and spoke to Hasu. He was very kind and we arrived two days later. The hotel is older, with creaky floors, but very clean... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
