Stayed there this past weekend for a couple days... Location was very convenient for us. Room was clean but decor was very outdated. Elevator did not work during our stay so we had to hoof it up 6 floors each time. Fire alarm went off on the first morning at 8am thanks to someone burning their toast downstairs. Not a... More

Comfortable, clean, quiet, and affordable. I would have paid more for this stay because the convenience was that of 5 Stars. My room was excellent. Old style feel. Nice Victorian decor. The staff SUPER friendly. Worth every dime to do business with NICE people. I can't say enough how quiet and cozy. I felt safe as I was traveling solo.... More

I arrived on Saturday and was able to check in a 2pm instead of 3pm. I was pretty lucky. The elevator was not working, so I carried my suitcase to the 5th floor. Luckily I packed light. The staff here are alright. I met and spoke to 3 during my stay. I wouldn't say they are super friendly but they... More

This hotel was simply gross. Old, icky linens, towels, bedding, mattresses, "pillows" dirty carpet. Dirty everywhere. TERRIBLE representation on web sites. Old pictures from previous owners or something...no room looked like the pictures. Old, run down, dirty, misrepresented and overpriced!

The property is 2 blocks away from Union Square. The front desk was helpful and check in and out was easy. The free WiFi was well received and it was very fast. The complementary breakfast was nice. I enjoyed my stay and will stay again when back in San Francisco.

This hotel is nice for the price. There is no a/c but if you get a room with windows that don't face into a courtyard of some kind, you can get fresh air. My room did have a portable fan that I used all the time. I think it would be very uncomfortable in warm weather. Also ask for a... More

This is a basic very simple hotel that would be good for a lot of budget conscious travellers. The staff were helpful, check in fast and efficient and the continental breakfast is the standard - bread, bagels, yogurt, fruit and some cereals. The room I was in was small, but clean. The elevator is very small and it was difficult... More

Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed the amenities that the hotel has to offer. Our location offers utmost convenience in that it is right in the center of downtown San Francisco- that of course comes with all of the factors of downtown city life, which in San Francisco usually includes panhandlers. You will in fact find this... More

This place was overpriced. But then again everywhere in San Francisco is. Its a bit dingy and outdated but ii think the location more than makes up for this. Everything you need in San Fran is on the doorstep, union square is a two minute walk. No AC in the room so we opened the window, so very noisey and... More

This hotel is old, but very clean. To get on the elevator, you have to open the door and slide the metal gate back...pretty cool. Not the best part of town, but not the worst either. Do your best to stay off Taylor street. The windows open and we could step out onto the fire escape. Great experience! I would... More
