Holiday in is a mid range hotel. Civic Centre was clean and comfortable but did not have a lot going for it. Local was average, service okay, price expensive but that was the time in San Franscico. Free wifi is good.

No matter what room or floor you are staying the noise from the street is very loud. Windows have poor insulation and do not block the noise at all. In addition to the constant street noise the garbage truck comes at 5am. Doors from neighbor rooms slam very hard.

It's San Francisco - prepare to pay a lot of money for no service at all. The room was one of those without aircon, hence the "bargain price" of not even 200$ a night... and don't even think about opening the windows because that fresh breeze you were hoping on could be impregnated with cigarette smoke. The floor was dirty,... More

Sorry for the poem. The neighbourhood at first disappointed us,because SOMA-CIVIC CENTER is full of homeless people,needles on the walking path, and it's kinda scary at night. I hope the town could solve this issues asap and give a shelter to all of these people. Once you get in the mood of this amazing town ,however, it doesn't bother you... More

The location was good for the F line streetcar which goes to the Fishermans wharf and the BART line from the airport. It was not a good area for walking around and there were not many places to eat nearby. The Tenderloin district was pretty depressing with so many homeless people sleeping on the streets around there. The hotel restaurant... More

I stayed here as it was a half block from where I was working. The room was clean and comfortable. The fitness center fit my needs (elliptical and bike for me, plus a couple of treadmills). Keurig in room with green tea and coffees. Convenient location, quick walk to cable cars and right near market so easy access to trolleys\buses.... More

The restaurant has a very very limited menu. Takes forever to get hot water, hallways smell of fish in the evening, you want a mini fridge you have to pay extra, no microwave, but they give you free slippers. The ice machine has been broken for 3 days and the hall carpet has not been vacuumed for at least 3... More

The hotel is fine but the location is in an area with many homeless people with severe mental health and/or addiction issues. We saw one man injecting into his bleeding arm when living the hotel one morning.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
