After looking at many hotels to stay at, whilst on our trip around California, San Francisco was becoming overwhelming on which hotel to chose our very good friends had stayed at the mayflower back in 2012, I decided to contact the hotel and book our 3 night stay and I certainly do not regret my decision. It is a fantastic... More

We three had a double double room on level 4. Originally booked 6 nights, but our plans changed. Hotel was able to accommodate us in the same room, arriving 2 nights earlier. Everything is exactly as described on their website - a budget hotel built in 1920s with original décor and fixtures, serving a continental breakfast. Our room was reasonably... More

The hotel is closely located to Union Square. Offers free Wi-Fi and breakfast, parking facility is available for smaller cars. The staff members are helpful at all times, there is a deli immediately in the next door, which has an ATM as well. A small library and business section are available for all guests. Recommended to visit again :) By... More

Fab hotel ideally situated. The owners were very welcoming with great tips for getting around the city, places to eat and things to see. The children loved the authentic style of the place and the old elevators, however i must be honest and say that the whole style is quite dated and the room was basic. That said, we had... More

Nice hotel. We lived there for about 10 days and loved it. The rates were affordable and along with complimentary breakfast, it's a good deal. Rooms: Rooms were clean - something which is absolutely required. There was a daily cleaning available which is nice. They have this microwave and a small kitchenette with basic utensils available which works well in... More

This hotel was in a great location, just moments from the action, but it is very basic. A great building that is desperate to be restored to its former glory and hopefully will at some point get a cash injection. The prices will go up considerably however as at the moment it's very reasonable for the location.

We were on a road trip so it was nice to finally find a place with parking that is also so central. As others have said, the entrance to the parking is very narrow and our rental car was not exactly big (normal American sized saloon) but it wasn't impossible with a bit of manoeuvring. The hotel itself I found... More

Never having been to San Francisco before and trying to find a decent hotel at a reasonable rate, when your currency is akin to Mickey Mouse money, isn't an easy task. From the moment we arrived to when we left we were extremely happy with the level of service, the friendliness of the staff. The room which we had requested,... More

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
