Score from 505 reviews Very good
Hotel Des Arts is very conveniently located. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Interesting art everywhere.
The breakfast room left a bit to be desired unless you were used to backpacker accomodation. The art in our room was definitely for the young.
The shower was weak, but acceptable.
Everything and the staff was amazing. I enjoyed touring the hallway exhibits.
Had zero problems.
Good, central location. Small fridge in the room.
The breakfast was really simple. Hard to handle elevator doors.
The location is conveniently located next to the Financial District. The art theme throughout is nice.
The breakfast was disappointing: toast, juice, and apples. Also, the walls are not soundproof - I could hear everything going on around me.
Great location. Nice vintage vibe for the rooms and hotel overall
No air conditioner or fan in the room so it might get a little stuffy if it's warm outside
Clean room. Clean bathroom. Location. Trendy. Staff.
location is great, and if you get a middle-of-the-building room like me, you get some silence.
Bedbugs - I'm not joking... Not a plus for a hotel. And the breakfast table actually made me laugh out loud, it's cute that they call tea + apples breakfast :-)
The location was great, and despite a lot of what I read beforehand, the staff were very pleasant in our experience. The artist-themed rooms are a nice idea, especially from the glimpses I caught of other rooms that were being cleaned. It was a decent place to stay, with no major problems.
Although the art in our room was interesting, it meant the room was a dull, Band-Aid color. The complimentary breakfast, which was part of how I justified the price to myself, wasn't much to speak of. We weren't expecting it to be palatial, but overall it was more Spartan than we anticipated based on the pictures.
Cleanliness and comfort
Noise from the garbage van that picking up trash at night
Made the mistake of booking a room with shared bath. Didn't realise this was an option and would have selected an alternative room if I had.
Location is the only redeeming feature of this glorified, overpriced hostel.
Well, even the half -naked 12 foother cowgirl on the wall couldn't distract from the inadequacy of this place. First, the heating didn't work during our entire 1 week stay (in one of the coldest December's in SF), second, the shower wasn't hot either and came out in a single mass at just below head height, making our massively awkward. The towels weren't changed, even when placed on the floor as obstructed, instead they were wedged soggily back into place on the single rail in the damp, cold bathroom. Speaking of bathrooms, we could hear any other toilet /shower / basin in the building like it was ontop of us. Which leads me to the paper thin walls that allow you to hear the receptionist listening to music all night, the couple next door having a barney about socks and the breakfast being prepared at 5am every day (who eats at 5am?!), swiftly followed by somebody who treats sweeping the corridor like a game of 1-person Icertainly hockey. All that enjoyed from a room with a view only of the backs of other people's rooms, with a window that had to be coerced open to alleviate the damp, a door handle that kept dropping off and completely non-functioning wi-fi. This place is described as a European-style hotel, but clearly by somebody who's only ever stayed in close proximity to an Italian airport. I wouldn'tstay here again if I was paid to, and can only be thankful I was on a business trip not a holiday, as this place would have ruined it.
Free WiFi Bed was comfortable Room was very clean
Was woken several times each night but garbage trucks and people going through the bins in the street Staff very rude and abrupt. Breakfast was lacking, not enough variety or space. Tea and coffee should be available at all times not just at breakfast.
The staff were fantastic and the location was within walking distance to the F-line which takes you to Fisherman's Wharf and Castro
The walls were so thin so you could hear everything! Also the stairs were pretty steep so after a full day of walking they were a bit difficult (there is an elevator but sometimes it wouldn't work since it's original with the building)
Rude receptionists! Unprofessional treating the guest. No coffee or tea at the room. Very old building and unfriendly elevator.Uncomfortable showers!
Art work was creepy, sad, demonic faces everywhere. Roomed smelt damp. Bed frame broken, wasnt my type of hotel, more like a hostel. Booked for 4 nights, didnt stay for even 1. Left first night and went to a different hotel.
1) Good location - a short walk to union square shopping, Moscone Centre and China town with reasonable price 2) Very helpful staff members 3) Interesting decorative arts
1) No air conditioning 2) Very small bathroom with small bath tub - very hard to use 3) The staircases are very narrow, and very old lift system
the staff found a oscillating fan for me to use. Best folks ever. See, we left Arkansas and it was 25 degrees, so we were a little warm when we arrived and it was 65 degrees. So the staff dug up a fan for us, since Air Conditioning has obviously not made it out to the Bay Area! Nor is it really necessary. Great experience though! Top notch for the price and location.
The China Gate is across the street and major shopping district is half block away. The walk to the Moscone Center is less than 10 minutes.
I stayed in one of the rooms that didn't have its own bathroom and this was a bit weird but the shared bathroom was clean and it didn't seem if there were many others using it.
The artwork in rooms and hallways, complimentary breakfast with decent coffee, great location
The shower, worst water pressure ever almost impossible to wash hair. Room was above massive aircon next door so constantly very noisy even with windows closed.
Always very clean in the room, staff is very friendly and helpful, bed is very comfortable. There was iron and desk inside that was very helpful for me.
Extremely old windows which pass all 100% of the cold and noise from the street. Centrally located, but pretty depressive area after working day hours.
I was presently surprised! Close to everything. Very clean, spacious. I've paid more for less in SF.
The lady that checked us in stated she would deliver our bags to our room once it was completed. When we got to our room, the door was left open. I freaked out thinking that my items were in the room. They were never delivered to my room as promised.
Great location right next to China Town. Each room is individualy decorated and very funky. Comfortably appointed. It's in a prime location, don't expect tons of space.
