눉Thank god we loved San Francisco because this place was disgusting!!
We paid $300 for two nights stay for two people. Which on reflect, we could have gotten so much more for our money!
On arrival we entered the reception that was buzzing with flies. Ignoring, we checked in to find to our horror that we had a SHARED bathroom... Details the hotel's website failed to mention. We were only told this after payment which meant that we had no other choice but to stay at this shoddy accommodation as we had spent our budget for the hotel. The elevator, much like the rest of the "hotel", was worn out and old, with very heavy manual doors.
We opened the room door to a small, dirty box room, which smelt of dampness. The walls had finger prints all over them, and the window looked out on to a beautiful view of bricks and a mass of bird shit! I am a very easily pleased lodger and so, I thought to myself, as long as the bed is clean then we are fine.... We lifted the top cover to find the sheet below was stained with blood. Upon pulling away that sheet, a shredded plastic mattress protector lay beneath. Disgusted, we slept on top of all of the sheets.
As we left to sightsee the next morning, I mentioned to the receptionist about our sheets. He assured me that his maid would take care of it by the time we got back. After a wonderful day, we arrived back at the hotel around 8pm to a bed which appeared freshly made. Pull back the sheets and... there's the same stained and shredded sheets as before!
Although we loved the city we were never as glad to leave for home, to enjoy a restful sleep & relaxing shower. The toilet cupboard was tiny with only a bin (you had to wash your hands when you were back in your own room), and the tiny shower next door wasn't of the cleanest of standards.
눇If there were any plus points, it was central to Union Sq, Chinatown and
the subway; and the television worked.
