Needs atleast small fridge in room or at minimum an ice machine in hotel. Plus although air con prob not required in San Francisco do need at minimum a fan in room as way too noisy to keep windows open at night. Very helpful staff and as mentioned a++ location

I stayed only one night, during the flight stopover. it's located at the center of the city, so you can walk around to catch a glimpse of San Francisco. Also it's close to Trolley line. The hotel building and the furniture seem quite old, but just enough for a traveler like me who use hotels only to sleep.

I was a little worried after reading some of their reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. I arrived early & didn't expect them to have a room ready for me but the lovely man on the front desk moved a few things around so I didn't have to wait. He was rushed off his feet doing 10 things at once... More

The hotel itself is just ok, but it has a great location and you can move to pretty much anywhere from there. The hotel amenities are limited, but the staff is really helpful and tell you how to be in the city

A reminder, this is a cheap/standard hotel, it's only expensive because it's in the heart of San Francisco. With that in mind... For those who doesn't want noise at night or early morning ask for the rooms in the middle of the building such as ##5, ##6, ##7 according to the room map (see uploaded photo) these are the ones...

Spent a week in this hotel. Small but good comfort. Extremely friendly staff and proper cleaning. Located very well for holidays or business. Only negative is the noise backyard with nighly garbage collection and homeless faiting over sleeping corners.

Worldwide each Hotel success is due to its people on the top of its location and accommodation. It was a return stay in my own case because San Francisco is offering a lot for a visitor. Some internal refurbishment work is planned for the next 12 months to be aware of prior booking.
