Elevator was broken and registration desk was on the 2nd floor, our room was on the 3rd floor. Very steep tiny staircase to get up there.
Great location close to Bart station. Loved the art work everywhere. Room was surprisingly comfortable.

The room was so hot that it was difficult to sleep. 3 pm check in time makes it difficult if you have plans for the day. And although they do provide you with parking for a fee, there was a public garage which was closer, cheaper, and open 24 hours. We used this because, like the check in time, you can't park in hotel parking until 3 pm. Which made it difficult if you have any plans for the day.
The room was small but very cute and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was absolute rubbish - good tea selection and some fresh fruit was a nice touch, but a toast or a bagel with the same plastic cream cheese for a week straight isn't anyone's breakfast - we gave up on the first day. Some of the rooms have windows towards the roof of the building next door which supplies you with a lovely, rumbling ventilation-sort-of-thing that starts up around 7 and shuts up around 23. Rooms are a bit stuffy and hot, but nothing unbearable.
Amazing location in the heart of San Francisco, close enough to everything but not too close to the bustle. Lovely interior, interesting rooms and a nice, tiny hotel for those who aren't too keen on faceless, huge hotel complexes.

Breakfast was very basic - just thin bagels, tea, coffee & juice. Rooms are a bit small. And some of the artwork in the rooms are fantastic but if you don't have a choice (if the hotel is booked up) you could end up with something a bit crazy like we did!!
Art, concept, location, staff, cleanliness & comfort.

Hostel type breakfast. Also the reception girl told us we could walk to the alcatraz pier in "under 10 minutes." it took us 30 minutes using the route she said and we ran the last 100 metres. She caused us to miss the ferry to alcatraz
Great small hotel with excellent artwork

Breakfast room was very cramped, and the breakfast was quite minimal. Hotel looked like a dive on the outside.
The art everywhere was fun. It looked really run down and dive-y from the outside. Inside was better. Location is good. Price is good.

small things that could be easily improved: need of a shelf in the bathroom and of a better hanger for the towels
Excellent wifi (I was at the reception floor) Excellent location Great rooms, I loved the Japanese graffiti in my room Simple but nice breakfast Very helpful staff Very clean

The Internet connection was very slow. Breakfast poor.
Great location. Clean facility. Friendly stuff.

The beds are not the most comfortable in the world but they certainly are not the worst. The shower pressure could have been more outgoing, it was much to shy!
We loved the location, staff and the ambience of this hotel. The art is fantastic and the hotel had a boutique kind of feeling. The breakfast was very simple but perfect before a long walk in San Francisco!

No air conditioning. Noise from the garbage van that picking up trash every night.
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room.

It was very expensive for the amenities offered. Breakfast was awful, served in a tiny room and if we didn't get to it by 8, very little was left. No fruits, just very flat bagels and toast. Water pressure was nonexistent. There was no sink in the bathroom, in fact it was right next to the bed across the room. I appreciated the art on the walls, don't get me wrong, but Lucha Libre fighters, whose skull masks glow in the dark are something you need to take into account when booking a room in the hotel. Granted, it seemed other rooms may have been less provocative. To be honest, I've been in hostels which are nicer for a lot less money.
The hotel is very central, close to bus/tram/metro stops. Rooms were clean.

Guy receptionist during the night shift at 11pm was extremely rude and insulting. We are well-educated people on a convention and he talks to us as if we were stupid. He refers to us as "hassle" and even said "Do you know how to count?"(what good hotel receptionist will ever tell their customer that?!") just because we are 3 in our room (which this site said that we just needed to pay additional fees for that, which I told him we will. He doesn't need to make a big fuss out of it). He raised his voice few times which people downstairs heard. We are post-graduates,speak fluent english and yes we know how to count! He brags about the place being a hotel and not a motel. Well, first of all hotel personnels should never treat their guests that way and second, we never thought of the place as a motel. That is why we never expected that treatment. We chose this hotel because of the location and its reasonable price. If I knew that we were going to be welcomed with insult and rudeness, I should've booked another hotel which treats their guests with respect. And did I mention no one helped us with our luggages? Even a 2 star hotel in a 3rd world country has someone who helps their guests up to their room.
Alma is the ONLY kind receptionist there. Breakfast was simple but delicious. Wifi was fast, location was good, room was clean.

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.
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 shower was weak, but acceptable.

Had zero problems.
Everything and the staff was amazing. I enjoyed touring the hallway exhibits.

The breakfast was really simple. Hard to handle elevator doors.
Good, central location. Small fridge in the room.

The breakfast was disappointing: toast, juice, and apples. Also, the walls are not soundproof - I could hear everything going on around me.
The location is conveniently located next to the Financial District. The art theme throughout is nice.

No air conditioner or fan in the room so it might get a little stuffy if it's warm outside
Great location. Nice vintage vibe for the rooms and hotel overall

Clean room. Clean bathroom. Location. Trendy. Staff.

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 :-)
location is great, and if you get a middle-of-the-building room like me, you get some silence.

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.
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.

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.
