I stayed at Sheldon Hotel when I attended a conference at Hilton San Francisco. Sheldon is a much more affordable option. The location is very near Union Square and within walking distance from Powell BART Station. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There is a shared kitchen and laundry facility that is considerably clean. We can warm up food using the microwave too.
Very friendly staff. Great location. Affordable.
No hand or face towels or glasses in the rooms. Old and a bit run down. Feels like a cross between a pensione(without breakfeast provided) and a hostel. No frills.
Excellent ubication, near union square
The room was small and not clean. Also the housekeeping didnt clean a day of our stay.
Great Location, friendly staff, great wifi, very clean.
room facing the street with firetruck station down the street. No problem with earplugs!
The staff were amazing
laundromat did now work. The noise from outside is very loud, you have to use ear plugs to get some sleep.
I stay here with one friend for 4 days. Staff were really welcoming. Professional but without being too tight ass. Location is good, close to union center. Rooms were clean every 2 days. There is a kitchen in the hotel (not in the room). Very useful...
Not windows in the bathroom.
- Cheap rates, location, Wifi, Cleanliness, kind staff - There is a good Korean restaurant(Cocobang) near the hotel.
Another hostel is just next to the Sheldon so there was some noise at night. Also, there was characteristics smell such as cleanser. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good.
Old furniture. Not comfortable bed
friendly staffs and convenient location.
coffee making facility and a few disposable cups could have made the stay more pleasant.
Comfy bed, good wifi, helpful staff, central location just two blocks from Union Square. Felt safe as they give you a key to enter the main door of the building.
Kitchen room very small. The area is full of homeless people, but I never felt unsafe. They just ask for change outside shops. Just probably wouldn't walk alone late night.
The small size of the room. The cleanliness. No housekeeper during our stay, the towels have been changed once during our stay.
Pretty responsive staff and awesome location. We loved San Francisco and this was a prefect base for us with everything for the budget traveller.
Quest kitchen, Laundry, Room fridge, own main entrance key for added security, Lift, easy walk to tram/ trolley/ bus/ shops/ food, rail station, hop on hop off bus stop, Staff very helpful.Safe area with the occasional street person around Union Square.
No routine room service.
The location of the hotel was great and safe enough to emjoy the city. The staff was very helpful.
-great location -good wi fi -kitchen if u need to cook smth or wash
-very small room -inconvenient bed -no daily cleaning and toiletries re-fill -no hairdryer in room at all, had to go downstairs to the reception and she jut luckily found one in their cellar
It is a practical tourist hotel with no frills.
Inevitable street noise in that city location. Some details would help, such as glasses or mugs in rooms for drinking water; also prominent notification of availability of irons and so forth, at the desk not provided in the room.
location was great to go shopping, site seeing, use public transport etc. Hotel was easy to find and eateries around. They had a small wash room & kitchen.Fridge in your room is always a plus. No bed bugs so that's a plus plus!
The aesthetics isn't that great but who cares when your not gonna be in the hotel staring at the walls. They have no "official" place to leave your things prior to check in. No gym & no pool. Garbage never got emptied.
Location. Two blocks from Union Square.
Everything. It was dirty, the room smell, they did not clean the bathroom during three nights we were there.
Very comfortable bed, friendly stuff, excellent location. Right at the centre of San Fransisco. I rate it 7/10.
Not the most clean hotel
The location was very good only 10 min walk to union square and a half hour to fishermans warf (even though we took the bus). Was noisy at night but that's san francisco city for ya.....The staff were very helpful. The room was small but nice and comfortable. Free wifi was good. Felt very safe as they gave you a key to enter the main door.
Even though we checked in late our room wasn't ready and we had to sit in the lobby for half an hour waiting but the staff were very apologetic. The fan in the bathroom was really loud but otherwise no real big issues....
the rooms were clean, recently renovated and although sparce they were perfectly livable, with a desk, cupboards, drying rack, fridge and cable tv. Towels and linen were clean and carpets nice. central location, able to walk to many things including cable cars and tour bus stops. good cafes nearby.
the way you pay your bill has to change before i'd go back here. had to hand over my card, have it photocopied and then write on the copy how much to pay and authorisation and signature. this was then faxed off to some other place and the next day they could find out if the payment went through. This seemed very insecure, and as I was having trouble with Amex at the time, very difficult as it was a long and laborious way of finding out if your payment was accepted. Staff unhelpful when I desperately needed a telephone to check my account (basically it was too difficult to help me to pay my bill). Unable to leave my luggage at the office on the checkout morning while I was waiting for my bus so I couldn't go have breakfast. Not very customer friendly. (think I found a bedbug too, but I'll hedge my bets and say it might have just been a bug in the bed). Could have done with a towel rail inside the bathroom and a kettle/microwave in the room. Room near the lift were a bit noisy but it was quiet after 11pm. Outside noise of sirens quite amazing, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. added to the excitement of being in the city.
A very basic 1 star hotel for few nights sleeping. Good location close to union square.
