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.

San Francisco is an expensive place and we were on a budget so I chose the Metro Hotel. The website is easy to navigate and choose a room. Good communication before and after with the billing etc. The reception staff were always very friendly and greeted us which was nice. The room itself was adequate, not fancy or amazing BUT I didn’t pay a big amount and I wasn’t in San Francisco to stay in the room!! There wasn’t enough room to fully unpack but I just lived out of my bag which is fine. There are a few convenience stores and a bar nearby which is handy. Using public transport is easy too with stops nearby and I’d say it’s 40 minutes with a change to Fisherman’s Wharf. I’d stay again happily. My only advice would be to maybe pick a side room not one in the middle as the walls are thin and you can hear the other rooms tv.

My wife and I recently spent six nights at the Metro Hotel. We loved the neighborhood with an abundance of excellent restaurants and coffee shops, and lovely parks nearby. Yes, our room was small, but comfortable with an excellent shower and lovely toiletries. It is an easy walk from the Metro to several buses going north, south and east into the heart of San Francisco. We highly recommend the Metro Hotel and will definitely stay there on our next visit to San Francisco.

This small hotel provides a great oasis in San Francisco; it is easy to walk to many locations but is quiet at night. Every employee is friendly and informative and I look forward to staying there again. The rooms are clean and unique and one can easily find breakfast nearby, then walk to Golden Gate park or Hayes Valley for lunch.
