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.
Noise from the garbage van that picking up trash at night
Cleanliness and comfort
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.
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.
Location is the only redeeming feature of this glorified, overpriced hostel.
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.
Free WiFi Bed was comfortable Room was very clean
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)
The staff were fantastic and the location was within walking distance to the F-line which takes you to Fisherman's Wharf and Castro
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) 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
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
