If you want to be in this area in particular, it's among the nicer hotels you can find. It's pretty good value for money and near lots of places to eat. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Their continental breakfast is good, but there's no inside seating so be cold or go to your room.

Room Tip: There is no elevator. I had room 101 on the ground floor and it was perfect.

Stayed here for a week travelling with friends and I must say 'what a find!'

Out of the immediate tourist district but in a fantastic location and in easy walkable reach of some great local shops, bars and restaurants! We visited Chestnut Street, and Union Street and visited most of the places that Oscar recommended. THank you Oscar - he was so helpful! We also walked to Fishermans Wharf and most of San Francisco to be honest!

Lovely rooms with fresh decor and absolutely spotless! Great maid service every day. Free breakfast in the morning, free wifi, and cookies served each day with free tea and coffee! They even have a computer you can use to check in online and print off your boarding card!

If I am ever back in San Francisco I will be staying here!

In the marina district away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Perfect location with Union Street up the road and Chestnut Road down the road. Walkable to Fisherman's Wharf. Oscar was our favourite! Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. A very enjoyable stay, clean fresh rooms overlooking a courtyard with pool! A must stay!

Overall ambiance very cheerful and a bit quirky, and everything is super clean. Room very well equipped ( apart from no fridge!) and kids loved the pool. Great location to walk/ bus ride to see all the tourist sights but also the local neighborhood has lots of restaurants/ shops you could need ( Webster street or union street areas) . Breakfast is ok but would be better with a bit of fruit/ yoghurt/ cereal... and although its full of families the 'quiet night' time is well observed ... Would thoroughly recommend to any friends with children. A great place to stay in San Francisco.

Just spent a week here. Great location- walk to Chestnut Street and Union Street for dining and drinks.

Only issue we had was that the housekeeping was average at best-room was clean when we arrived but after a few days we saw poor attention to details- tissue box went unfilled after we finished it; sink didn't appear to be cleaned thoroughly; daily vacuuming seemed to miss spots etc. Nothing that was like OMG but the cleaning crew was not thorough.

Bed was comfy, shower pressure was so so.

We had a junior suite- came with a mini fridge- nice touch.

Also- they now charge $10/day for parking.

Breakfast- not important to us- was meager- bagels and muffins. Coffee was good (Equator Coffee) and available all day.

Choosing a hotel in San Francisco is always a challenge. If you are visiting the city for fun or work, location is the most important consideration. It is not easy to drive, walk or take public transportation around the city so it is especially important that you think before you book… The Del Sol is hip and fun and close to two of the most interesting shopping and restaurant strips: Chestnut and Union Streets. The Marina, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow and the Presidio are also nearby. Complimentary breakfast and parking are a plus. The pool/late night scene in summer is reportedly fabulous but the place is also family friendly in the off season. Think of it a suped-up motel that feels more like a mini W hotel.
