Adequate for a weekend in a big city, but rooms are very small with minimal room in the bathroom. We needed to open the window at night for fresh air and then had difficulty sleeping because of the noise. The hotel could do with a bit of a spring clean and replacement carpets.

I booked the Andrews based on the recommendation of a colleague. I checked it out on line and it is located close to Union Square and under $300/hight. I chose the one bedroom suite (as I'm aware most "charming" hotel rooms in San Francisco are small!) As you walked down Post Street from Union Square you could tell the neighborhood was changing from vibrant to shady. The reception area was quaint and the check in process went ok. Took a bit longer because someone was in training. The old elevator was charming and you could also walk the stairs. The room we got was bigger, because of the sitting area, but the bedroom was small. There is a full bathroom off the sitting area that is in desparate need of a remodel and then a sink and shelf in the bedroom that was convenient. The carpets needed cleaning, the towels are small and scratchy and the two tvs (one in the bedroom and one in the sitting area) have screens the size of a computer monitor. The evening front desk staff was not helpful except for Russ who was sympathetic to our complaints. And the bartender in the Fino Bar was unbelievablly RUDE! For an average of $285/night (inc.taxes) you can stay on Powell Street at one of the bigger hotels with just as much "charm".

Room Tip: If you want to stay here definately pay more for the suite with a sitting area. These rooms are on...

Do not travel to SF in August. This hotel cost over $200.00 a night plus tax (16 %) and the room was the size of a postage stamp. The hallway and room carpet
need to be replaced. Very visible large stains. The continental breakfast tasted like day old pastry, a shame for S.F. with decent bakeries on every corner.
No refrigerator in the room and ice is obtained by taking the elevator to the basement. The location is convenient to Union Square. Mary ( at the desk) was very cordial and helpful.

This is an old hotel about two blocks from Union Square. It has an old time elevator and a lot of antique charm.

I booked it off the internet because the price and location were very attractive. However you get what you pay for.

This place is NOT AT ALL CLEAN. The rugs had not been vacuumed in years it seemed. There was a layer of dust and a very bad smell throughout. The bathroom was abominable and there was no way the average sized human could sit on the toilet.

IT'S VERY NOISY. Sirens were wailing all night and the walls are paper thin.

I've stayed in many older hotels in the past and never had such a bad experience. I could never recommend this hotel to anyone.

It is hard to find an inexpensive hotel in San Fransisco. But compared to other hotels Andrews Hotel is not on the expensive side.
The most positive about this hotel is the position. Just one block from Union Square.
The room itself was charming, but not especially comfortable. The building was from 1905, and the installations probably of the same age. The room was small and there was barely room enough for the king bed. (I had booked a suite, but got only a king room, but I won't blame Andrews Hotel for this; it was booked through 3rd party, and I suppose the error lies here).
The internet would only work in one corner of the room.
The bathroom was very small.
The hotel offers expensive valet parking, but it won't be much cheaper if you park yourself.
Breakfast was included. It consisted of very good French bakery, mini baguettes, croissants etc. But nothing else. So it could not keep you going for too long.

The hotel room had old furniture and accessories. I would recommend purchasing new bed spreads, blinds, bed frame and paint the room white (it will make the room feel larger). The bathrooms are very small (but clean) if you were a bigger person you would struggle. The location is fabulous approx 5 mins from Union Square. San Fran is very expensive and this hotel was great for the price. Free wifi was very usefull.
