We stayed for 9 nights, and overall we were quite pleased! Staff were friendly and helpful, and very welcoming! Room was small but very functional! Ensuite was basic, but clean. The rooms are cleaned daily, and although the room is basic and not decorated very well, we were pleasantly surprised! There is a drinks vending machine in the lobby, as... More

A good affordable hotel, perfect location, nice staff but average rooms... The bathroom was REALLY cold and really humid. It is perfectly located (in China Town) and the staff is really nice. You can leave your suitcase in lockers in you arrive before check-in time for 2 quarters...

We go to SF once or twice a year but were tired of staying with family and wanted to get a hotel. We were looking for something cheap since we knew we would be in there to sleep and shower, nothing more. The reviews for this hotel were positive for the most part and we knew when we booked that...

Needless to say, it was perfect for our type of traveling, and much needed after sleeping on the ground for 4 days.This is a no frill type of place, for budget travelers, but in a perfect location, near the entrance of chinatown.

I booked that hotel for 3 nights. It was acceptable as a base for visiting San Francisco because of its ideal location. We didn't spend much time in the rooms anyway apart from showering and sleeping. The linen was clean but I wouldn't say the same about the old, dark carpet. The rooms were small and dark. The walls very... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for 3 nights. The first night our room was very small and run down. Also, there was a window that could have been accessed from the street that made us uncomfortable. We asked to switch rooms after the first night and the staff happily obliged. The new room was much nicer and much... More
