Staff was friendly and free parking . No frills and lobby and check in area need serious up dating. Stayed on the fifth floor. Ask for a room on the back side as it is less noise. Location was good for us as we enjoyed our walk through China Town and Little Italy with plenty of delicious restaurants.Room was fair...

This hotel with its free parking (make sure you register your car) is in a great location—any easy safe walk to San Francisco attractions. It is on the border of Chinatown -- walk down the street and have a good look around. We loved the authentic atmosphere found in Chinatown -- bustling and so friendly! Lots of really good dumpling...

Boy did we luck out! I'd done my research and kept coming across positive reviews of this place so we took a chance. Best decision! This hotel with its free parking is in an absolutely dynamic location -- canNOT be beat if you are a tourist to San Francisco. It is on the border of Chinatown and North Beach --...

Stayed here 3 nights during the big storm of January. Went through 2 umbrellas. Not my first choice (the Royal P. is about a 2 star), but there was a huge convention in town so everything else was booked or charging 5X the going rate, so here we are. The hotel is right out of the 1950's and hasn't changed...

The location can't be beat for exploring SF's Chinatown and "Little Italy" North Beach neighborhoods, plus there is a small parking lot reserved for hotel guests which I consider a gem to find! Yes, the room decor is a bit tired, but our room was clean and comfortable. If you're a light sleeper I would recommend reserving a room that...

Been looking forward to y trip. Managed to get this hotel right in Chinatown. Arrived late in the evening and was given an upgrade to a junior suite. Nothing fancy, just that it has an additional sitting area with sofa which we didn't really used. Room was clean and decent. Luckily there were elevators so we didn't had to lug...

A shabby remnant of what must have been a fabulous motel in its heyday, Royal Pacific's strength is in its location, in between Chinatown and the Italian District and walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square. Big rooms and quite clean, but very poor and intermittent wifi, which made daily itinerary planning a challenge.

Stayed at this hotel because the weekend we were there most hotels were asking over $900+ a night. Truthfully I couldn't fault this place, rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and parking was included in the price. Was able to walk to all the tourists spots San Francisco had to offer. Sadly will never return as I found the city...

I stayed here as it was one of the recommended motels on TA´s San Francisco information page and it was very good. The key selling point is that it is relatively cheap (for San Francisco, it is still quite expensive compared to other cities) and that it has free parking. I had a room quite near the back so I...

Choose a room on the backside to avoid the noise from the street. Our room was large with a king bed, sofa, desk area, nice-sized closet, dresser, bath with tub. It was quite clean. Ice machine requires a quarter but ice is really complimentary and the desk clerk will give you a quarter. Close by are bus stops that will...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
