This hotel is in a great location couple of blocks from all three cable car line. Easily walk to Chinatown or embarcadero/Ferry Building although we did not we rode the cable car. It is a little distance to the Wharf and Pier 39 but just a few blocks away from union Square. But for the price compared to other hotels... More

At first this hotel we found very ugly, noisy and something old. But with the passage of time, we realized that well worth not to be impressed by the appearances. The staff is very friendly and the cleaning is the best I've seen in a hotel, although it is not a fancy hotel well worth staying here mainly for its... More

We are four and got a family room, pretty to tiny- small room, where not one can walk in the room, one king bed and trundle beds, all very uncomfortable, bathroom pretty small, not views on the windows other than next building. Closets and carpet on the closets gives you the impression to need pesticide. Breakfast was very limited or... More

We had a charming, spotless corner room for our four night stay in the city. This hotel is old but charming and very well maintained. We found several good restaurants nearby and it is an easy walk - as easy as any walk in this super hilly city- to Union Square. Very quiet at night and a nice cool breeze... More

I was very happy to find a room in the center of San Francisco, at an affordable rate. I was even happier to have a large and quiet room, well equipped with dressing and kitchenette. Breakfast was good, the staff was very nice.

The staff were always friendly and helpful with directions and information on what to see and do. The hotel was very clean and the included breakfast a nice treat. I would always stay here on any...

Hotel Mayflower was a great, affordable base for our San Francisco vacation. A bus stop is nearby at Bush and Leavenworth. Bus 27 and 47 will get you to Fisherman's Wharf. It is easy walking distance to China Town and Union Square. You can also catch a cable car a few blocks away on Powell Street. We walked, used the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 8 nights total in May 2016 (3 nights then 5 nights - split up by a Yosemite trip). We were struggling to find somewhere central in SF at reasonable rates that wasn't in the Tenderloin, and this fit the bill. It's a short walk to Union Square and there are plenty of excellent...

Add us to the list of many who have given this place 5 stars. San Francisco is super expensive with the average hotel being over $250-$500/night. Read about this place online, saw the great reviews and reserved a room. Based on the reviews we asked for a room off of Bush st as they are quieter, but everyone is different.... More

When you come into this hotel it feels as if you could be going back in time, with many quaint and wonderful inclusions from a time not so long ago, but not to be outdone by any newer hotel, for an efficient Wi-Fi, a daily breakfast, and a 24 hour front desk are all part of the deal.. The rooms... More
