“This will do if you're just planning on sleeping here.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

As the title suggests, this is a pretty no-frills hotel. However, if you are on a budget and all you are planning to do is sleep here (and be out for most of the day), this will be good enough.

Location: The hotel is only a few blocks away from Union Square (where there are many shops, restaurants, etc). It is also in close proximity to many bus stops which will take you to different tourist spots (Golden Gate, etc - although you will need at least one bus transfer to get to most of these). It is also a short walk (about 20 minutes) from China Town. Geary Street on the left of the hotel (after a block) is nice, there are many restaurants and shops. However, to the right of the hotel - it gets a little bit sketchier.

Room: Was clean and I liked how there was a ceiling light, rather than just lamps (as has been the case with many of the hotels I've stayed at). There is a timer on the light in the bathroom - i think this is for environmentally friendly reasons. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is no AC, only a ceiling fan, but that was fine for us.

Service: I was not a big fan of the customer service here. The staff behind the desk were often skyping or watching things on their laptops. This did not appear very professional - however, we had no major issues in particular with them.

Other: Wifi is descent, and there is good Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant across the street from the hotel. The food was delicious and quite authentic.

The rooms are clean and that is what is most important to me. Breakfast is terrible.. You can not call it breakfast. Stuff was not friendly. They charged my credit card, for some deposit that is unnecessarily to big, without any question and no explanation. But I repeat- room and the price of room are reasonable. And be careful-you can get stuck in an elevator :)

My husband and I stayed at the Adante Hotel this past weekend for my daughter's swearing-in ceremony at UC Hastings School of Law, and although the price was right for a Friday night stay-over, there were many things that were troubling. The room had no heat or air conditioning unit, so we had to rely on the ceiling fan which we had to restart every two hours. The bathroom light must be on some sort of timer, because it would also come on about every two hours which was very annoying at night when the light would hit us right in the face. Since it was hot in the room, we had to open a window, and there was no screen on it. We were wondering if one of the pigeons would decide to join us in the room. There were bottles of water by the coffee maker which we would be charged for if we had them, but one of them had been opened, refilled with water (we guess) and had an A written on the cap. It was a little scary to wait for the elevator (which sounded like it was on its last legs) and read that any more than three people may cause it to stick.

Room and hotel not particularly clean and they added extra charges to my credit card after I checked out. Attempts to contact them to get them refunded were ignored

Even if its cheap they gave my room away after I booked and paid for the rooms . Had to share one room with friends we traveled with. We all shared the shower after each other and a washer fell out and the shower didnt work anymore. Didnt get compensated for anything . No sorry for giving my room away to another customer. This was the worsed hotel Ive ever seen and been in . I only booked it because Hotel.com recommented it to me because my other booking was full at another hotel . Just looking at the inside of the lobby it gets worse as u get to the elevator. If 4 adults get in it it will not move let alone may stop on its way up.The room looked very old and not in good condition. This hotel should be knocked down and replaced with a new one.HORRIBLE STAY AT THIS HOTEL.

Room Tip: Dont do it. I warned you with my review . Dont stay at this hotel . Its a living night mare.

The room was larger and nicer than I normally have in similar discount San Francisco hotels. The location was convenient and I did not notice any problems with the street people. The breakfast was just minimal but okay. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The wireless worked fine even though I was on the seventh floor.

If you want to experience San Francisco the "old fashion way," then this is a great hotel. It's close to Union Square, cable cars and tasty, corner street diners. The rooms are small and I found myself taking the stairs over the elevator, but that's part of going old school. Overall, it was a very memorable experience.
