This small hotel is conveniently located to explore San Francisco. The room I stayed in was on the 6th floor (a ballet room), and very small but had everything I needed. It was very quiet. People comment on the old fashioned, small elevator, but I never had a long wait for it. Although it is close to public transportation, you do have to walk thru some sketchy areas to get to some transit.
I highly recommend the free (donation appreciated) city guides walking tours (SFcityguides.org). They have numerous walking tours of various areas and the guides are very knowledgeable and you can tell they really enjoy showing people their city. The street cars and busses are very easy to use, you really don't need, or want to have, a car if you are staying in the city, and many areas are walkable from the hotel (20-30 minutes to Union Square, Alamo Park (painted ladies), just a few minutes to the ballet/symphony/jazz venues and the Hayes valley with many shops and cafes or restaurants.
The hotel does have a small lobby and a restaurant but other than that no common areas or outdoor spaces to relax.
If your goal is to see San Francisco, this is a good home base.
