Location is key. Very close to where i needed to be and at night all the buzz was around. Spacious room.
I missed a desk in the room. Also closet is very small. There was little oxygen in the room and i could not really open the windows. It is also noisy at night when your room is facing powell.
-The soap and shampoo dispensers -Sink in the rooms
-Low toilet water flow -Some rooms very small -
We never got any response when we rang the front desk ever though it was always attended by one person. The establishment was more like a boarding house. We didn't cancel because the location was close to public transport.
The price was excellent, and the location was great. Very close to Union Square, the Powell St. Bart station, and in the heart of the best shopping in the city.
We had a room with a private bathroom, but most rooms have shared toilet/shower.
I liked the location of The Herbert. It is close to many great restaurants. It is close to Union Square It is close to Powell Street Station. It is close to Market Street.
The lobby is small and quickly becomes crowded. I can't think of anything else.
Central, comfy bed, spacious, cable car stop and Walgreens right outside with Macys across the road.
Floors were a little dirty other tgan that all was good. Would stay again for sure.
Just a quick walk from the Powell street Bart station and in an excellent location for all the attractions. The bed was extremely comfortable and room facilities good. If you have a late flight they offer a very safe and secure baggage storage for free. Highly recommended stay.
We had a room that is normally a family room and so the bathroom is in the middle of two rooms. When used just as a bedroom with ensuite, there is a bit of noise from the other room but minimised with the bathroom door closed. The hot water system seemed only to cope with one hot shower. This may have been an anomaly.
This hotel has a great location in Union Square with Walgreens next door for breakfast and snack items. Room spacious and very clean. Wi-Fi excellent. Really enjoyed our stay.
My room key was given to other occupants and was rudely awoken at 3am. My fiancé and I were in our nightly clothes when this incident occurred. This embarrassing situation has yet to be resolved within a timely matter. I asked for a call back and resolution from Kevin the front desk clerk but no one has reached out to me within 48 hours. This is n
Matress, localisation, staff, 'price' considering sf standard...
No breakfast, common bathroom really inconvenient (small and not enough), some noise from the street
The staff and location were excellent
Location was great during the day for getting around
If you want to sleep at night take some really good eap plugs and sleeping pills.
excellent location - on Powell St - Union Square; verry close to BART station.
price (but anyway, we could not find any better option in this price). hotel is very old.
The location was amazing and the staff were very helpful!
Granted it was unseasonably hot in San Fran when were there and with the room getting the afternoon sun the room was really hot with no fan or cooling
One of the Front Desk Staff was just great ! Thanks for her great attitude. Laundry service, kitchen is so appreciable. Very clean, and location is very very good (All ground transportations and activities around around the hotel)
The front desk "Manager" should learn how to be polite and how to smile, at least a little bit !!! Nothing else than a Bed in the room (small desk or table would have been grate)
Location could not have been better. Beds were very comfortable and the room was spacious. A great hotel to feel the atmosphere of SF and make the best of that gorgeous city..
Some more wall hangers would be good for lifting up stuff scattering around :)
Walking distance of less than 5 minutes to Marriott Hotel where my seminar was held Within the city Centre and walking distance to most of the attractive shops, bay area bridge etch Room was very satisfactory interns of cleanliness, bedding etc
My show was not working
Hotel is a two min walk from the Bart station 1 min from Union square, westfield shopping centre and market street tram stop right outside and 1 min from all the hop on hop off buses the seri e was great friendly and very helpful the rooms were modern and comfortable for hey you need for a holiday
The rooms while sound proof from outside building it is very easy to hear everything that is going on in the next room as there are the in room adjoing doors
- Great location downtown, close to Chinatown and the CBD - Cheap option for travellers on a budget - Nice staff - Great if all you are after is somewhere to sleep and a base to explore the city
- Very basic rooms - As it is downtown it is pretty noisy
My favorite hotel in SF
Love the location
Bathroom and Shower share
Location close to Union Square
There was no air conditioning, no air circulation other than opening the window, which of course allowed the loud street noise from Powell Street to come in all day and night. The amenities were bare bones. The entire experience was like staying in a Hostel at $350 per night!
Location is superb, just next to Union square. Room was comfortable and relatively quiet.
Only 1 bathroom for 4 rooms with shared facilities on the floor. There was a door in our room that seemed to be leading to the bathroom of next room. No insulation around the door, could hear neighbors talking, having shower or using toilet.
Location. is the best asset...just a few meters away from Powell tram station...and good nearby restaurants.; Price is also lower compared to other hotels within the same vicinity.
Room price for queen bed is already equivalent to that one of a 5-star hotel in the other metropolitan cities in the U.S. like Las Vegas and Portland.
The hotel is near Union Square, cable car, the best stores of San Francisco, nice restaurants , diners, bars and pubs. That is the better point to start a city tour.
The hotel doesn't have breakfast.
