Score from 896 reviews Very good
Location close to downtown, room to the back was almost quiet.
Breakfast could be improved. At the end of breakfast time there was no re-fill.
Small with basic. Still cozy.
A bit fair from downtown.
The hotel is perfect. Great location on Lombard Street. Fantastic view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the lobby on level 3. The room was comfortable, soft bed and large flat-screen TV. The front desk check-in lady was wonderful, very polite and helped us with booking our shuttle back to the airport. Overall a fantastic stay and would highly recommend to anyone visiting SF.
The hotel itself is fantastic, however you're not renting a car or have your own vehicle, it's a bit of a walk to get a decent bite to eat. There were a few close local restaurants however they were either being renovated or closed very early. If you're traveling with one bag public transport isn't a bad way to get there (AirTrain and BART) however if you have multiples bags, a shuttle would be much easier!
very good breakfast great location
I thought the front desk staff was very helpful and kind. The rooms had a view of the main street and were inexpensive.
Its a little out dated.
The location was excellent
the bedroom did not have good view but was quiet
Staff - new towels in bathroom
Quality of sheets could be upgraded
Everything about our experience here was positive. We could walk to Union St. and Fisherman's Wharf. The staff were pleasant and helpful, and the free parking was a bonus. The best part was the rate--it was so good that I was worried that it might not be a place I'd like to stay!
I can't think of one thing to complain about!
We (with my son) stayed 3 nights, one of our stops during 3 weeks tour accross the western US. We did not expect too much - seeing the reviews and the prices of the (comparable) hotels in San Francisco. The price, free garage, free wifi and location on Lombard street have been the main reasons to select this hotel. And this is what we have got. Obviously, it is also the charm of San Francisco that adds to nice memories. We did not mind that much the poorest selection and delivery of the breakfast (compared to our several other stays on our tour) or worn out feel to the whole hotel (the latter somehow can be related to sentimental sense of SF ;)
Strong odor (mentioned in other reviews) in the rooms, probably of the cleaning chemicals, has irritated our nostrils that much that we needed to leave the window open during the night - at a price of noise from the Lombard street. Also the thing on the floor feels dirty, and the toilet has been decorated with hair from previous visitors. SO - mainly things that could / should be improved. This has been the most expensive stay (per night) in 3 weeks - since the others manage to keep the mentioned things on higher standards, and because the staff in this hotel is already kind and helpfull - we believe they can improve.
Location to our daughter and the Union Street/Chestnut bars and restaurants made this a good location. Room was spacious, bed was good and the shower/bathroom clean and worked well. Wifi was free and worked very well for those interested. Also free parking which was a plus! Staff was courteous and helpful.
We had a room one night facing the street. Probably would not recommend as the traffic on Lombard is very noisy at all hours. The other night we faced the other direction but didn't seem to help as there were a group of people in a lounge area and they were very noisy as we were trying to sleep.
Anything you want to reach in the city is close by. Either by car or on foot.
Everything: location, staff, on-site parking, comfort/size of room, area for my husband to make a business call. The continental breakfast could be better, but if I want a big breakfast I would not have it in the hotel anyway. Well done, Buena Vista and thanks for the helpful staff.
There was a wet towel on bathroom floor but I checked in late at night so I figured the cleaning people would deal with it in the morning..toilet didn't flush I was out most of the day and slept in the evening.. Still no working toilet.. Plumber came in and out on the second morning so I was unable to shower .. Had to get to my meeting.. They only offer me 20% discount upon my departure ..not that happy.. They said the real manager wasn't available ,
WE had a great time there , the Staff & location for Walking , sight seeing , and the indoor Parking. FREE not like Downtown.I will RETURN
I cant find fault , for the Price Paid.
Chestnut St neighborhood, good area to walk, was able to cancel second night and move.
hall smelled like a locker room, walls in room were marked and in need of paint, shabby appearance of room, IMPOSSIBLE parking area under building, sink in open area like a dorm room
Bed was king and ok.
We were booked into a room that was in the middle of being re-modeled. Mirror and pictures were stood up against a wall. Refrigerator was very old and dented and did not work. Major inconvenience. Bathroom clean but unfinished. Paid 150 on booking.com. Spoke to other guests who paid 120. for same. Front desk all good except for San. Rude.
Staff were accommodating and helpful. Room (located in back of property) was blissfully quiet, and though not fancy it was clean and certainly comfortable enough. Free off-street parking a HUGE plus in San Francisco! Continental breakfast sweet rolls were fresh, and fruit was provided as well.
Wish there had been hard boiled eggs or other protein option on the continental breakfast spread, especially in a California city that emphasizes healthy lifestyle and foods.
Location is great, close to Fort Mason, Marina District. Staff helpful.
Parking is difficult, always full, small area to maneuver in. Room was a bit "smokey."
Great clean place. Great location and convenient. Helpful front desk. Free wifi and parking.
Breakfast not so good
Good location, nice staff, clean room
A bit worn in the room, though not badly
Easy access to Fishermans Wharf, while walking. Car park at Hotel was free. Good Wi-Fi Staff were friendly. Rooms cleaned each day
Hotel was showing its age. Lombard street very busy, can be noisy at night
