Kinda of a "self serve" Hotel - with an actually good location - 20 min walks to first major places. Across the street you have a Peets Coffee or a Starbucks to choose from. The room was clean and modern with a vinatge touch. Room service clean my room perfectly. The issue to be aware of is the nightly noise - if you are not used to it, i reccomend earplugs. Many breakfast options arround Lorries Diner on Suter very cool. Safe area easz access to major routes and also a parking garage across the street.

Calista Organic Hotel is charming little hotel.The location is quite good! just 2 blocks walking you will reach the cable car station(Nob Hill) . The room is small but cute enough to stay for weeks. There is microwave oven and eating tools. No AC(only electric fan) but heater . The staffs is OK. My room is on the 4th floor is quiet even it right opposite the elevator. The bathroom is small but nice and there is a hair dryer under the sink.

We arrived from the UK after a 11 hour flight, got the room & it was filthy. Went to the reception to ask for the room to be cleaned, the response “has it not been cleaned? The maid has just gone home”... Got into bed for the first nights sleep & the bed sheets had stains all over them. The pictures are a complete lie, make the place look modern when it’s clearly not. £515 for 4 nights is a ridiculous price for the location of the place, 15 minute walk to union square. DO NOT STAY HERE FOR THE RIDICULOUS PRICE

Not near Union Square as they claim. So called front desk not staffed 24 hours. I was left standing around at the entrance for 30 minutes before a guest who was leaving let me in. 1950 prison decor. Room was not serviced. By far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

PLease please avoid this hotel they are rip off merchants making fraudulent charges from your credit card even though you cancel within time. Repeated calls to get this resolved and I am not only one they have done this to.
