We stayed here for three nights in September. Although we had booked a basic room with a king bed, we enquired about upgrades and were given a room overlooking the pool with a balcony. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom, whilst basic, had a very powerful shower which was The hotel is in a great location, within walking... More

The location is absolutely perfect, but it is rather expensive and we had a car and it cost us a fortune to park it for three days. A lot of breakfast places nearby and the "hop on hop off bus" stays almost outside the hotel.

San Francisco was our last stop on a very busy 3 week holiday trip around California , Arizona and Nevada. We had an amazing time so it was very unfortunate that our last stop at the Handlery Hotel was so disappointing. The rooms were dusty although the bathrooms were clean. The staff on reception were not very welcoming at all... More

Stayed for 6 nights and had a wonderful stay. I had asked for a quiet room and that's what I got, on the 4th floor with no street noise so was able to sleep soundly especially after such a long flight. The Reception staff were very welcoming and the Bellboy took our luggage up to our room on arrival. We... More

This is an old fashioned type of hotel but good nevertheless. Sprawling. Had a lovely room on the front street. This meant it was terrifically noisy with traffic noise, general hub-bub and the homeless music band on the street corner drumming away. The hotel know this and kindly provide ear plugs which is a nice touch. Once in, it's fine.... More

The hotel is a little tired, but it was a lovely stay. The location is perfect, right by Union Square, on the cable car route, hop on/hop off tours start on corner and busses and taxis are plentiful. The staff seemed pleasant, except for one afternoon concierge. Our room was a little small, but still comfortable and clean. We felt... More

Located in the heart of Union Square. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel and were very pleased with the room's layout. The bed was very comfortable and so was the rollaway bed! It was a best deal by far in the area. If we ever go back to San Fran we will definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed at this hotel and while it has a great location for exploring the city, I felt it was in need of a bit of a makeover. We paid quite a lot for the 4 nights we stayed here, but as always this is the case with city centre hotels. Room was always cleaned well, but just felt... More

Stayed at the Handlery for 5 nights on a recent 3 week trip to the US with the family. It was probably the cheapest place we stayed but turned out to be oustanding value. The hotel is in a great location, just off Union Square. It is a little dated but the rooms are large, very clean and very comfortable... More
