As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.

The room was very small but secure and clean. The staff were very polite and accommodating. The location was perfect for getting around with downtown and the financial district a stones throw away. Windows were very thin and we could hear early morning traffic. More expensive

Are rooms accessible by stairs?
Sure, there are stairs! We had to carry our luggage (25kg x 2 pieces) up to the 4th floor after scaling the notorious SFO slopes up Chinatown from the BART (Subway) due to the lift was on a week long maintenance.
