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.

Location was great, can get everything from here, Staff were really nice.
the price is to high for what they offer, room was very small, at night there were a lot of noise on the back street. the break fast is really light.
Room decor and artwork Perfect location close to Union square
Breakfast not great choice but adequate . Small lift
no air conditioning. we hadto walk 4 flights of stairs. weren't told of the free breakfast
Staff were very helpful and the location was ideal for us to explore most parts of the city.
We found our room stuffy and hot at night without air conditioning (visiting in September).
very old lift - have to push the door really hard room extremely stuffy - no good ventilation system
- very clean - nice staff - great decoration
- noisy - too much light (no curtains) - view of wall opposite window
Great price in comparison to neighbours. Great location. Helpful friendly staff. Bars and restaurants on either side. Chinatown Gate across the road. Fabulously decorated, clean and tidy rooms. 24hr security. Bag check on check out day.
A bit noisey with single pane windows. The "continental breakfast" offering (Starbucks 4 doors up).
We loved the art everywhere... The art is very modern, very hip. Each room is designed by a different artist. Located in the center of downtown SF near Chinatown and the financial district, an easy walk to much of downtown.
The rooms are very small and have no air conditioning. Access is by a small old fashioned elevator. Part of the charm perhaps.
The art. The art is everywhere. In the hallways, in the room. This hotel would be fine to stay at in the cool months. There are fine restaurants nearby and the entrance to China Town is right up the street.
No parking on premises. Nearest 24 hr parking is 2 blocks away. With hotel voucher you get in & out privileges for $41. No air conditioning in room 308...Don't know about the rest of the rooms. One needs to be buzzed-in from the street. Does not lend itself to feeling that the overall location is safe. At $200+ it is pricey for what it is and where it is.
Awesome location . comfy bed . the bathroom was a bit smaller than I prefer ..
We loved this hotel! If you want something different from your usual bog standard hotel then this is the place to be! The art of extraordinary and the place comfortable, clean and wonderfully querky! We loved it and would stay again!
The only issue we had was the noise from the trash collectors at 3am but the staff were more than happy to move us to a quieter room as we had to be up for an early flight. If that's the only issue then they've got it sussed!
The location is good. Near Union Square for trams, cable cars and open topped buses. Near Chinatown. Near Alamo Car Rentals. The quirky decor was interesting.
Access from Bush Street by small, old fashioned lift. No chest of drawers in room. V small breakfast room. Felt like an overpriced Hostel.
The rooms had seperate living quarters. Quirky rooms Centrally located. Friendly and helpful staff.
Old fashioned lift. Paper thin walls Having to buzzer into hotel each time.
Location - Very close to Union Square, Powell Street, Market St Price - considering the location it is very good value for money Staff - very helpful Would definitely use the hotel again on future visits
Great location, clean room, fast wifi, amazing art. Nice breakfast in the morning and vending machines for late night snacking. Loved the old-style elevator. We had a room with its own bathroom - really surprised by how great this hotel was for the price! Will recommend to others.
Our room was located right by a fan or generator or some mystery loud buzzing noise from the restaurant next door. We could have asked to change rooms though, but didn't, so can't complain too much.
Very central. Staff really friendly and helpful.
That being so central - if you are in a room at the front of the hotel it very noisy during the night. On our booking we had requested quiet room if possible. Sirens, lorry's, dustmen and car alarms did not make for a peaceful sleep.
Location Staff Allowed for 5 travelers to stay Reasonable price
No free parking- this is not surprising for San Fran.
