The Metro is not a boutique hotel - it is small and friendly, but plain - somewhere to sleep rather than somewhere to stay. We had one of the smaller rooms, which was perfectly fine, if a little cold (we asked if the heating could be turned up - it couldn't but we were offered a noisy and not very effective space heater).
It's a ten minute walk to Haight Ashbury which leads to Golden Gate Park, and five minutes walk to Alamo Sq for its classic view. There are two bus routes just a couple of minutes from the hotel. One is fifteen minutes from downtown the other runs north towards Presidio. There are some pleasant bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel itself.
There is no breakfast. The staff directed us to 'Vinyl' just downhill from the Metro. We tried it once, which was enough.
