Location and cleanness and staff
Clean renovated room. Updated bedding. Amazing location - right in Union square. Wifi free.
We booked a room with sink and when we got there they only had a room without sink. Sharing bathrooms was alright but showering could get weird. Cleaned usually around 3 so if you time it.
it was what we wanted
Room was clean and bed was comfortable. great location.
Sharing bathrooms, showers.
The location is absolutely perfect (5mn from Union Square)
Shared bathrooms and restrooms (only one per floor)
The location was great.Very near to trams, restaurants and shops.Staff helpful and friendly.
Saturday night could be a little noisy.
-Good location -Clean
-Overpriced like most SF hotels -Lots of street and bar noise
Great location and friendly/helpful staff
Clean, practical, Very Nice Staff!!!
The two night that I stay in the weekend, the fire alarm went off always at 8:00. Noise isolation is bad, you can hear everything going on the streets. No breakfast.
This hotel was very central, within walking distance of pretty much everything. The room was simple but clean and the bed was comfortable. If you want your own bath/shower, make sure you book the correct room type.
If you are not used to city noise, then you might be kept awake. I used ear plugs and slept just fine. This hotel doesn't do breakfast.
Great location, clean premises and friendly staff
Excellent location, staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms and facilities were very clean.
We chose the shared bathroom option. The facilities were very clean but there was only one shower and one toilet on the floor.
Easygoing, basic hotel excellently located at Powell street close to Moscone Center. A bit expensive for what is offered.
No table or buro in room. Very minimal hotel, no breakfast options.
Location. Value for the money. Close to BART.
A small desk in the room would have been nice.
It doesn't get much better. The rooms are adorable and the beds are cozy. Try to get on the 5th floor or above so that you don't risk your view being of a brick wall. The location is PERFECT! You are right in Union Square - charming shops in every direction. It's about a 10 minute walk to Chinatown. The Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason Trolleys pick up directly outside of the hotel and it is within three blocks of BART transport to SFO. I can't wait to go back!
The shared bathroom wasn't ideal, but the bathroom and showers were very clean. I never had to wait for one or the other. There was no sink in my bedroom as it was shown in the pictures.
hotel is worn out and thread bare. no air conditioning. noisy. construction next door started at 6am.
right at the city center, tasteful and clean. great value for money option.
This hotel room was spacious and clean. Noise was minimal from the busy street outside, when the window were shut. It is conveniently located near to Union Square and a cable car stop is just outside. Significant savings when price is compared to a good quality chain hotel.
The room is sparse, with no wardrobe or cupboards and very little surface space (creative photography hid these aspects). There was a hanging frame with 7 hangers, two small bedside shelves occupied by radio/alarm, phone and tv remote. Two small circular tables, one with kettle & fixings. We used the free one for phones and door key. Lived out of our suitcases apart from a few clothes that we were able to hang. Bathroom had one small shelf, my toiletries were kept on the fridge (no use for otherwise). Our room did not have a ceiling fan (needed) or wood framed mirror, as advertised.
Loved the location - great proximity to almost everything but the street noise made for some sleepless nights (they also put me right on Powell).
Going to guess non Booking.com customers get preference and non street-side rooms.
We stayed at one of the rooms with private bathroom. The room was big and comfortable. Location was excellent. Right at the center of Union Square. Very good for people who like shopping like myself. It is also very near to BART/MUNI station and cable car station. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great customer service!
Walls are thin, you can easily hear the next door.
Great location and rooms. Helpful staff.
nice staff central location
the area is packed with panhandlers and in general not the prettiest of the city, so avoid it if that bothers you.
Location is exactly what you want for a central stay in San Fran. Bed was comfortable.
No airconditioning! Very basic furnishings, nowhere to put your bags appart from on the floor, wifi doesn't really work. No ice machine, no fridge and no breakfast. It's better than the fusion hotel which I also stayed at.
