First visit to SF. Hotel was good value with helpful staff especially with arranging trips,shuttle etc. Particularly liked complimentary breakfast - and glass of wine! Room adequate and more character than bigger chains. Would visit again

The Andrews is just two blocks from Union Square (uphill, though), so location is not a problem. Haven't had issues with the size of the room (a bit small sized, but not tiny). Staff was ok but not particularly friendly. Breakfast included is also a plus, even though lacks variety.

Lack of A/C wasn't a problem as well. Room was very clean, no complaints about that. Only problem we had was related to street noise at night.

I'd surely be back if on a budget.

The wife and I stayed at this hotel in August 2012. We really enjoyed our stay while we were here. The building itself was erected in 1905 (obviously remodeled since) which gives it some of that historic charm. The hotel is clean and our rooms were cleaned everyday. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the fact that our continental breakfast was served on our floor so it was a quick walk to grab my coffee, fruit and pastry and back to my room.

The location is about 2 blocks from Powell street and 6 blocks from some good shopping and the BART/metro.

We stayed here for one night before heading off to our next stop. It was the end of June (2011), so it was very warm. We immediately turned on our ceiling fan to cool the room down, but it was broken. With no a/c, this was definitely an issue! The front desk sent someone up (it took about 20 minutes) to look at it, but it was unfixable and we had to be moved to another room.

It was very loud in the streets outside of the hotel, which is to be expected in the middle of a city. However, with no air conditioning we had no choice but to keep the window open all night. It was a no-win situation: poor sleep due to heat or poor sleep due to noise.

This hotel is the ideal location for touring around San Fran. The hotel was charming and clean. The rooms were small but the amenities such as the amazing Fino restaurant that provided complementary wine every evening and the stellar bfast place honey honey across the street made our experience awesome!! We would definitely stay here again! It was very close to the muni system and the cable cars, which allowed us to travel with ease to all the places we wanted to go in San Fran!

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Weather was cool so no ac definatly not a problem. Room was very small and kind of felt grubby. Bathroom was very tiny and the light switch was located in the shower which freaked my husband (a contractor) out! Most of the front guest staff were very friendly and helpful, one guy was a little snotty and never looked up as you walked by. The elevator was small and should be only taken up, take the stairs down, its much more fun! Enjoyed the buffet each morning, although not the healthiest choices, it saved us having to get dressed and search for coffee outside, plus they provided trays for carrying extra cups (and real cups not paper). I bring my own pillowcases with me always and a pair of flip flops for walking around the room and Im glad I did. Can't fault the location, close to everything, even our car rental pick-up was only 2 blocks away! Price wasn't bad either for San Fran. Did notice it was a bit noisy outside in the alley, but I also bring ear-plugs with me which helped. We generally don't get house-keeping as I don't like people coming into our room for security reasons, but they were very kind in checking each day by slipping a note under our door and offering fresh towels which was nice.

Poorly operated and maintained. Mostly sympathetic staff seems hamstrung by a management/operator demonstrably unwilling to invest in badly needed repairs and improvements. Things don't work. Things need fixing or replacement. Pillow cases had synthetic fabric that felt like rubber. Rooms that would embarrass many similarly priced hotels are nevertheless offered to guests without hesitation or apology. This property is perfect for travelers who think cost trumps function and appearance.

Room Tip: Avoid any room facing Post St.
