I stayed with my teammates for a week for a business trip. The room was nice and spacious. The staff were helpful and friendly. But the best of all was the location. Its central location made it possible to go out for shopping and fun after a full day working. I would definitely return when I'm back in San Fransisco. I will however ask for a room closer to the elevator and not above the bar (which was nice and lively but noisy)

Hotel's Favorite
We have now stayed at the Velos Hotel twice. It is perfectly located - on Market street and within easy walking to museums. There is vibrant street life on Market Street, but the hotel windows are so shielded that you barely here the noise when you are in your room. Beds are great! We will be back!

Stayed here for a leisure weekend solo trip. The hotel was clean and the staff were nice. They gave me a free upgrade, which was much appreciated. Yes, the area is maybe a little sketchy, but that isn’t the hotels fault, and they provided security at the door and I felt safe traveling alone. Would stay here again.

Great place to stay and great service. Located next to traders joes and and a lot of shopping centers. The room is clean and organized l. We arrived super early (like 9Am). Even though our check-in time is on 3pm, the Jeff welcomed us at check-in was able to accommodate us with a room which we greatly appreciated!

This was our first stay at Hotel Zelos. It's right in the heart of lots of fun activities, entertainment and close to everything. The hotel room was beautiful offering a great view, nice amenities and fine dining and bar. The BEST part was Jeff Abenoja (Guest Service Agent) was AMAZING. He was extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful...such a wonderful team!

On arrival it wasn’t very clear where we should unload our bags but after that confusion we were given our keys. Rooms are very nicely done and clean (apart from the windows!). Clean linen and nice bathrobes are provided. Rooms are decorated well - very relaxing with nice art work and lighting. Coffee machine is nice touch. Bar is trendy and well done. There is a good fitness space. Only thing missing is cleaning fluid for the equipment! Staff seem pleasant enough although not very engaging.

We love Hotel Zelos. It is conveniently located near the Powell Street BART and Muni station. You can come up from the BART station and get to the hotel without crossing the street. The staff is super-friendly and will make your stay comfortable. The rooms are very comfortable, particularly the corner kings and suites. Dirty Habit is great for drinks and breakfast. There is a Trader Joe's next door and a Walgreens around the corner on Market.

Jeff Abenoja made the checkin process so smooth. He was so kind and he moved expeditiously with our accommodations. He was very detailed with informing us of all the amenities the hotel has to offer, which was incredible. I’ll be sure to spread the word on how beautiful the interior of this Hotel is and how exceptional the service is!

We spent 5 days in San Francisco in July and were very happy we chose Hotel Zelos. I booked 2 connecting rooms, which were perfect for our family of four. The location of the hotel is within the shopping area, in the Union Square area of San Francisco. The rooms were spacious and quiet. Would recommend this hotel if you want to be close to multiple transit and bus options. Great stay!
