3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The Hotel was all you could ask for in a city with limited space. very small room that was directly over the diner fan next door. Only 1 lift very busy had to wait up to 6 mins on some occasions. there was lots of street bums which the authorities did nothing about, one played old plastic containers like drums till 4 in the morning every night right outside the hotel till gone 4 in the morning, phoned the police and they did nothing. dont stay here or any where near union square if you want to sleep....go down to the warf and get a cab if you want a night out in town....

Room Tip: dont stay here if you want to sleep

We recently stayed here for two nights after spending the first two nights of our California vacation in Los Gatos. We had a nice, clean room on the fifth floor. We especially liked having a window in the bathroom for air circulation and natural light. The staff was very friendly and parking across the street was convenient. We were slightly concerned about this hotel after reading some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised and happy with the accommodations.

Built in 1911...so expect accordingly! It's a nice place. What more do you want? My new favorite place in San Francisco. Such a nice, pleasant, centrally-located spot. I took a chance on http://hotels.com and was not disappointed. The service is excellent. The rooms are quaint and clean. The property is old San Francisco. You're not going to be in your room anyway. So go ahead and pay $300+ for fancy-schmancy! For those of us who know a good deal...book it!

It was an awesome stay for us eventhough it's true that there were some down sides of this hotel such as thin wall and 24hr noisy traffic that were mentioned in some reviews before. But they actually beat the Good Sides, which are :
- Clean Room
- Comfy Bed & Pillows
- Good Wifi
- Nice & Helpfull Staff
- Good Location, walking distance to Union Square, & easy access to go anywhere
There were many good restaurants around too! I will definitely recommend this hotel to the same budget travellers who will come to this city too :)

Room Tip: Make sure you're asking for bigger / more spacey room when you're checking in, because it...

Our recent stay at the King George Hotel was amazing. The staff was very helpful, we get lost easily, they helped us with transportation and booking everything that's exciting to do in San Francisco. Our three day stay was too short, but we hope to return next year. Thank you for making us feel we were home!

Room Tip: First floor was very quiet.

We stayed in the king George for 6 nights and had never been to san fran before. You cannot get a hotel with a much better location than this! only a 2 min walk from union square and market street where all the great shopping is! The hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful.

The room: The room has a safe with a key that you have to carry around with you and the room also has a flat screen tv which is nice. The rooms are very average in size and are old but in saying this the room was very clean and so was the bathroom. We had no problems with the room other than that the room walls are very thin and you can hear people talking as if they are in the room but it was never a problem for us to go to sleep.

Overall the staff are very good and friendly, the rooms are clean but old and have paper thin walls but you cant get a better location!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing the King George Hotel and taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your kind comments regarding our great location and helpful and friendly staff. We apologize for the level of outside noise you encountered during your stay and we are scheduling a window replacement project later in the year. Also, thank you for sharing your observation regarding “key” operated in-room safes. We are in the process of transitioning to digitally operated in-room safes.

Kind Regards,

We took the train from the airport and the hotel was just a short walk from the station. Location was convenient to shopping and restaurants, also. The building is old, but rooms are charming and cozy. Complementary Peet's Coffee is provided in lounge/restaurant on the main floor in the morning and there is happy hour in the afternoon.
