We recently stayed here as friends. The area was good, right at the start of Chinatown, the amenities were exactly as described. It is close to transport and we easily made our way around using both public transport and on foot. The hotel staff were also helpful with which bus/tram/trolley to take to get wherever we were heading. The only... More

The Hotel is very clean which is the most important. If your on a budget its a good hotel as far as location and to just sleep. The rooms are extremely small. If you have a bad back dont even think about booking. The beds were hard!! We needed to take medication each morning with our morning coffee. No AC... More

The hotel has a very nice decore both in the lobby and the rooms, very fresh and new. Loved the bathroom, which had great shower. Had a room by the road, but slept great not much noise. The beds were suprisingly hard, but slept like a baby. It is by the dragos gate to China town, and not to far... More

The hotel seems to be the strange mix of old and new together, almost like it was renovated but not completely. The rooms are cute and cozy but the floors and beds squeak terribly. It's in Chinatown and isn't too expensive though which is nice.

The location was absolutely amazing. The hotel was ok. We didn't stay there long so the room didn't matter much. We were in the heart of china town which was very cool. Parking was good too which surprised me. We were able to unload our cat and park all day on the street and move to a ramp that night.

This is a fantastic spot for a stay in SF. It is central but not noisy. Nearly every sight worth seeing is within walking distance. Our room was quite small and certainly not luxurious but it was clean and comfortable. We were very well looked after. I was particularly impressed by two things. Firstly, when we had to come home...

Hotel is located in China town, parking is a block away from hotel. Room was very small for us, family of 3. There were a double bed and a roll away bed in the room, however the room was so tiny that we hardly placed a roll away bed on the floor. It was nice and clean, but room itself... More
