No air conditioning but a ceiling fan. Ask for a room away from the street as it can be a bit noisy.
Fantastic location. Close to shops, restaurants and public transport. Room very modern with exposed brick wall and timber floors. Very clean and bright.
helpful front desk, immaculately clean room, and the only really good reading light on each side of bed.
Only thing we didn't like (and they really have zero control over this) was the amount of "beggers" in the area. We couldn't take 5 steps without being hit up for some spare change.
It was clean. If you're going to stay here I would recommend you get a room with a private bathroom and shower. Some rooms have shared facilities for the entire floor.
Had to walk down the long hallway in my undies in the middle of the night 4 times to empty my bladder in the common shared bathroom. The girlfriend and I forwent taking a shower during our stay in the shared bathroom.
Only thing was there was no air con in the room so might get hot in summer
in downtown, near most of the interesting places well organized
The noise from the street.
The room was big and clean. The location was perfect for shopping.
3 Things that should be changed: 1. Soundproofing of the room (you can clear listen the noises coming of the street and from the other rooms and pipes of the hotel). 2. Should put Black outs on the windows (the sunlight comes fully in the room). 3. Water pressure of the bath (it's insufficient to have a decent shower.)
Location, design and decor of the Hotel. It's a good looking and comfortable hotel/room.
nothing not to like
minimalistic design. bright n airy . location. has laundry facilities
Liked everything very convenient
great location, clean room, friendly staff, good price
There was not enough counter space for our things and our family suite did not have the mandatory fridge and our perishables spoiled. Our biggest disappointment was with the customer service. The front staff didn't seem to care much about our needs.
Overall, we were pleased with our stay at the Herbert Hotel. The rooms were pretty clean and the beds were relatively comfortable. The noise level was fine and the room temperature was good.
Noise from the street.
Close to shops, restaurants and bars.
Perfect location to walk around in the SF area. Union Square, Chinatown etc. The hotel was extremely safe and secure. Parking was extremely close at a fairly affordable price.
No in room fridge
Iocation is right in the centre of union square
No lounge area to sit in.
The room was so spacious even for a family of four.
Late night thai food next door
The location. It is right in the middle of the city. Cable cars outside the door, union square up the road, Bart down the road and a grocery shop next door. Staff was fantastic. Yes, I would definitely stay here again.
Toilet was small
The false wood floors are a bummer.
Great bed and sheets and great location.
The location is awesome close to union square and on historic Powell street where you can catch a cable car.
Shared bathroom, loud street noise
Convenient - close to Bart exit
Unfortunately it's a little bit pricey for what they offer. In fact, all San Francisco hotels are very expensive and don't offer at least free breakfast. The staff has nothing of amazing. They only answer what you ask, not that sympathetic American way of talking. They could offer at least one sink at the room. Would help a lot.
The location is perfect! Close to the main centre - subway station, startup offices, shopping, Union Square, etc The hotel is very clean, the rooms are nice and the bathroom is always clean for a bath (in my case it was shared). They have one elevator and this is very useful. They also have a place for business meetings, which is amazing! I recommend this place, but they could low down the prices.
