Had a great 4 day stay here. Stayed in medium sized room with big claw foot tub that was nice to soak in after a long day walking San Fran hills. Spotlessly clean and fairly quiet in our room located in back of hotel - could hear cable cars clanging and sirens at night but have to expect a bit of noise in the middle of downtown. Breakfast room busy in the morning so get there early - choice of bacon/eggs, omelet or French toast and with cereals you can help yourself to on a sideboard. Staff are polite but generally reserved in a more European manner. Location very central, 10 to 15 minute walk to transit hub on Market Street: Bart for airport/cable car starting point/buses to everywhere and our favorite, the F-line historic streetcars which take you in one direction close to the Mission and Castro districts and to the Ferry Market Building and Fisherman's Wharf in the other. Get the 3 day or 7 day MUNI pass and save a lot, especially for the cable car which will cost you $6 for a single trip alone. Would definitely recommend this hotel - won't find a nicer room in SF for this price that includes bathroom and breakfast.
