Visiting S.F. usually includes lots of time seeing the sights and doing all sorts of tourist stuff. And not spending lots of time in your hotel room, right? If that's true for you then stay at "The Metro Hotel". The rooms are small, but we'll laid out. They're clean, safe, and a good value, too. The employees are nice and... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at the Metro Hotel for three nights and had a wonderful time. It's in a great location, near many good restaurants, public transportation, and a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park. The room was always clean, with fresh towels daily and relatively quiet. The best part of our stay here was the hotel manager/owner Shana, who... More

You really can't beat the the price of the Metro Hotel in San Francisco! All other places to stay, even B & B's, are way more expensive than this place! The location is a little far from things but taking the bus is very easy. It's a hip little place with great Wi-Fi, the rooms are clean and large enough... More

We stayed in San Francisco for two nights and this hotel was perfect for our trip. Our room was small, but extremely clean, spacious bathroom, comfy bed and very convenient for walking to several of the sights.

Great spot, great location, great value, very clean and comfortable with helpful staff. Simple rooms but it is walking distance to Golden Gate Park, Haight St, with easy mass transit to other locations. Loved our time here.

Everything about this hotel was terrific. I stayed for two nights in room 106. The room is tiny but its everything you could need after a day of exploring the city. Super comfy bed, TV, free wifi, clean bathroom & shower, high ceilings, & a fan. Room 106 is also steps away from the beautiful outside garden. The staff was... More

A great hotel for a few days' stay in San Francisco. Offers everything you need; simple, comfortable and clean place to stay - plus it's very affordable compared to the other hotels in the city. The location is very convenient, you can easily walk to interesting places. Bus stops just around the corner.

Kind and helpful staff, very clean and quaint hotel. Can't beat the location for Haight Ashbury! Within walking distance of many good bars and restaurants. Highly recommended and will stay here again.

Very good but basic accommodations in the Lower Haight for a great price. Friendly personal service and comfortable beds. No breakfast, no elevator. Wireless works well. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Like others have said, I hesitate to review this place because I would prefer to be selfish and keep it a secret! I will definitely be returning.

This hotel is not exactly in the Haight Ashbury district, however, it is only a few blocks away. The price is very reasonable if you compare with other hotels in San Francisco. I have stayed in Haight Ashbury before, but I found that I prefer The Metro over the other hotel I stayed in despite the fact that it is... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
