Very nice & warm people
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, fantastic location, very convenient, family that run it could not have been more friendly and helpful. Yes, it is a bit scruffy, but the important things like clean bed linen and towels are right, and for the price we thought it was unbeatable.
The hotel is near Union Square and convenient to bus & Cable Car lines, which makes it easy to get around the city. Wanting to spend our money on sightseeing rather than accommodations, we chose the Taylor Hotel at $50/night. The street it's on is a bit creepy, but together (2 women) we felt pretty safe. Whatever you do DON'T get a room on the street. It's VERY noisy. I live in the city and thought it wouldn't be so bad...IT WAS! Couldn't sleep the entire first night...Yikes! The room was clean but very old. The bathroom door didn't close all the way, the t.v. didn't work very well, no phone in room...stuff like that. Overall it was clean and comfortable if you don't plan to spend a lot of time there.
I enjoyed my stay here. It's a great hotel for budget minded travelers. The manager and staff are very friendly and accomodating. The continental breakfast and internet access are very enjoyable additions. I plan to stay here on my next trip to San Francisco.
whilst looking for a cheap hotel in San Fran I came across nothing better than the Taylor Hotel. but whilst I was there for the weekend I noticed a couple of other hotels in the neighbourhood advertising similar rates of around $50 which could have been better. the Taylor Hotel is scruffy and smells of curry. the rooms are small and the ones facing the street is very noisy. the beds are small and the furniture old. but it's cheap and in a great location so you get what you pay for!
The hotel manager lives on premises with his family, very friendly folks. Clean sheets, clean shower...not the "Hilton", but very reasonable price for a safe room. Taylor & Post is a very good location...walkable to many restaurants, and the Wharf for a moderately healthy individual. The only down side for me was the street noise, but it is in the city-what can you do?
