Located in the historic Pacific Building in San Francisco’s SoMa District, Hotel Zelos is more than its prominent address — it’s where energy thrives. And where attitude reigns. Step into the sophisticated lobby that opens to a portal to rooms of intimately warm shades of gray and a modern residential feel. Peel back the layers and explore the complexity of our merging with technology. Stay in, explore, dine at Dirty Habit, the sultry heart of Zelos.

The service at this hotel cannot be beat. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and adequate, with an expresso machine in the room. Their morning coffee bar on the 5th floor every day assures you a great cup of coffee to start the day.

Great stay! The hotel was beautiful, clean, nice rooms and the area was perfect for what we needed. Jeff at the front desk was particularly helpful at check-in, we got in early and were super tired and he was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Clean rooms, friendly staff, great location. Jeff is always helpful. I prefer to stay in this hotel several times in a year. I do not look for even for other hotels anymore. I wish they have a loyalty program.

While San Francisco is going through a tough time, Hotel Zelos is making the best of it. Jose was warm and welcoming when he checked us in. The room we got was large and spacious and with the extra pane of glass in stalled on the window frame, very quiet. What they lacked in hotel upgrades (the shower/bath was older), they made up with great amenities! Wonderfully scented shampoos and soaps, comfortable bedding and the tastiest Nescafe machine coffees in three flavors! There was such a nice old world touch to the hotel. One evening I went with my colleagues went to the restaurant (on the fifth floor) and we enjoyed tapas by the patio fire. Would definitely stay again!

I always stay at Hotel Zelos when I come to SF for work and Jeff is the absolute best. Kind, accommodating and beyond helpful. The check in process was super simple and I was even able to get in a little early, which helped me to unpack and freshen up before being at our work offsite for 10+ hours.

We stayed here for New Year’s Eve and were very pleased with the overall look, cleanliness, staff, location, and ease of check in/out. I found that overnight parking at the Yerba Buena parking garage one block away was $44 and cheaper than hotel parking.

Very conveniently located as it is within walking distance to major connections to mass transit. The room was clean and had plenty of space and the bathroom was very modern. Staff was very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. We are definitely coming back for our future visits.

Located mere steps away from the Powell Bart Station, Hotel Zelos was a very comfortable weekend stay for NYE. Big shout out to Jeff who checked us in—he was the perfect mix of genuinely friendly, funny, and professional. Zero complaints here—the bed was comfy, the room was very tidy, and having Dirty Habit as a place to enjoy breakfast was a plus. (We weren't able to dine for dinner since it was closed for NYE.) It was totally a seamless experience from start to finish and I'd definitely book again in the future.
