I have stayed at this hotel before and this year I returned to stay here again. The Hotel has been completely renovated, from the lobby, hallway to the room and bathroom. This Hotel always provide good value and now is even better with the new renovation.

Yes, this was the absolute tiniest hotel room I have ever stayed in ... but that was not an issue! Yes, it was a bit noisy (from the adjoining rooms, the hallway, and the alley located right outside our room), but we were so exhausted from the day's activities that none of that mattered. What was more important to us...

Rooms are small, cramped. Bathroom fixtures need work. View was of a wall. Parking is not provided. Just a place to sleep. Not a nice comfort if you want to hang around. There are some places for restaurants and shopping in walking distance. Pier 39 is within a 1/2 to 1 miles walking. Located By the Bay Bridge. Would not...

Great wee hotel in the Chinatown district of San Francisco. Rooms are small but enough room for couples and single travellers plus in the city you don't want to spend too much time inside anyway! It was clean, well maintained and the staff were all friendly.

I will start by saying this hotel is in a fantastic location, walking distance to everything in San Francisco city and the young girl at the front desk is super lovely and helpful.. BUT, the double beds are very uncomfortable, the rooms are the size of a shoe box and you can hear ever step everyone takes in the place....

This hotel recently underwent an impressive renovation and is one of the best bargains in San Francisco. Located just inside the gates of Chinatown, the rooms are simple, clean and newly decorated; the desk staff friendly and the location just steps from dozens of shops and restaurants. Easy access to MUNI and BART stations. The only negatives are a lack...

I can easily give this hotel 5 stars.....for what it is. Clean, conveniently located and friendly staff. They have recently remodeled and the prices have gone up, but still a great deal. This time I had a room on Grant Street. Heard the bustle of the city, but Grant isn't a busy street, so it wasn't intrusive. The coffee in...

This hotel is very clean and staff were all fantastic! Location is awesome, Chinatown to your left, Union Square to your right. We had a double room but it was a little tight, but we were only in the room to sleep. We didn't think we'd get a good night's sleep as the bed seemed very hard....we actually slept like...

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
