The Orchard Garden is beautiful and so clean! I received a warm welcome from Art, Ahmed and Klaus, including a tour of this jewel of a hotel. The rooms are very comfortable. The whole hotel is peaceful and elegant, everything obviously well maintained and of high quality. It was lovely to enjoy sunshine and fresh air on their rooftop terrace! It felt very good to be in a hotel that is obviously well managed and also friendly. Highly recommended.

Two Visa Debit cards were declined for the deposit and the way this was managed made us feel very unwelcome. We went as far to have the original travel agent involved; there emerged also an issue with inaccurate advertising, apparently. Oddly we never had issues using our Visa Debit around the world and in California, but it was an issue at this specific hotel. We read past reviews and discovered someone else had the same issue we have experienced here. So, be aware that this may happen to you. Other than this, in fairness the hotel is a nice establishment, well kept and very clean but it should be noticed that prices reach those of nearby 4* hotels, where maybe they accept all types of cards.

Responded Oct 29, 2023
We appreciate the reviewer writing that "the hotel is a nice establishment, well kept and very clean." As the reviewer explains, they presented for payment debit cards that were declined by their card issuer. This was between the guest and their card issuer, and was outside the Hotel's control. As always, though, we were happy to accept an alternate form of payment/deposit. This is the second review this person has posted about this incident, now three months after their stay. It was the card issuer that declined the transaction, not the Hotel. So the response we gave previously is still the best advice we have to offer: "Of course we accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa. But this is always subject to advanced approval by the card issuer. If the card issuer does not approve a transaction, the card holder should present to the Hotel an alternative form of payment/deposit (including cash). We hope this explanation is helpful. Thank you."

I highly recommend this hotel for it's customer service, price, cleanliness and location. The hotel is located right next to the China Town pagoda so you can easily find the hotel in this big city, as well as it being centrally located. I chose this hotel for the price and location and I Really shop around. This is my 7th trip to SF and I will stay here again. There is a nice rooftop deck and I was amazed by how quiet it was up there on the 10th floor. I did not hear an emergency vehicle sound our whole 3 days there and that was lovely. The front desk staff was very nice. There is also a restaurant for breakfast on the main floor.

Around a 5 minute to China Town,15 minutes to Union Square, there's a lot of cafés around, and an abundance of Chinese restaurants, North Beach restaurants mainly Italians, around a 20 minute walk. Rooms were nice and the shower worked well. We had breakfast at the hotel and it was very good.

Stayed 3 nights and loved this hotel! Clean, modern, quiet, and our room was spacious and bright. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is close to everything (and 10 steps away from chinatown), so we were able to walk everywhere. This will now be our go-to place to stay when in San Francisco!

It’s a lovely little hotel. Location two blocks off Union Square. Just by Chinatown. Very eco- which translates to not much water pressure in the shower. And the AC system has a mind of its own. And finally, the breakfast menu could use some smaller choices beyond the full meal deal now offered. But there are other spots across the street. Highly recommended.

This hidden gem effortlessly combines boutique luxury with cutting-edge, eco-friendly design, making it a tranquil oasis. The attention to detail in every aspect of the design showcases the hotel's commitment to sustainable practices without compromising on elegance or comfort. I was upgraded to a spacious room which was well-appointed and designed, with a terrific street view. The energy-efficient lighting and water-saving fixtures serve as a reminder of the hotel's dedication to sustainability. The location of the hotel is another highlight. Situated in the heart of downtown, it offers easy and safe access to the city's iconic attractions, vibrant neighborhoods, and diverse culinary scene. (The Irish Bank is a fab restaurant across the street). I would come back here in a minute.

Excellent experience at the Orchard Garden. I spent 5 nights in May 2023 and was delighted with everything. The location is perfect for exploring the city; fine dining opportunites abound within just a few blocks and the service is top notch. The room size was more than ample and the whole place is immaculate--just beautifully maintained. I will be a return guest without a doubt.
