Location, staff, room and breakfast! Everything
Loud at night due to location
friendly staff and good location
too loud at the night
Good price for downtown SF. Older hotel but in good condition and clean. Decent breakfast.
Rooms were small
Tiny room which was very hot and humid. No tea or coffee facilities in room. Shower pressure very poor. One small lift, very slow and crowded. Housekeeping was only done very late in the afternoon. Breakfast selection not good.
Strange smell in the room. Think it was chlorine
In the middle of a lot shops.
It was a fantastic location - so close to all the shops!
It was a very small room and it definitely had a smell as some of the other reviewers have said.
Amazing central location. Cute little clean hotel
Breakfast is absolutely embarasingly horrible and utterly lack luster. A joke really.
Size of room a way too small
Our room and bathroom were very small. The furniture was a little bit trashed and the curtains were all dirty and rusty. Our tv was doing strange noises too. No air conditioner in the rooms.
Staff are very helpful
Cannot make a hot drink inside the room
Location cleanliness and friendly staff
Extreme amount of hallway and room boos after midnight. Actually after 100 am. Heard neighbour vomiting after partying
Very Central - just by union square. Close to train station. Bang in the middle making it easy to visit highlights on foot too. Modest room - fine for a couple of nights. Remember to take shower gel etc. Breakfast - tea/coffee/juice/water. Sliced bread, jam, butter. Tiny cupcakes. All in all - pretty basic and decent.
Didn't stay long enough - so can't really comment.
very nice location yet fairly small room. close to union square, walking distance to Chinatown. Bus stop to Fisherman's wharf.
Location is great and staff is helpful. Overall is very nice and suggest for leisure traveler as very convenient for access to all area
Water pump for shower is not so function.
I liked the location, that's about it. I also really like Jack, he was excellent! Was very hospitable and friendly. The other staff barely even talked to us.
I didn't like how long it took to use the elevator. The rooms were super tiny, I felt very uncomfortable. The bathroom was not very comfortable. The placement of the sink seems very awkward. No AC!!! Ugh the entire night we could barely sleep. The fan didn't do much, and the bed was super uncomfortable. It was too hard of a mattress.
Jack was very helpful and make things better.
The breakfast is so poor, makes me leave the it and eat outside.
room, bed, lightning, no desk, amd announces a breakfast that is nonexistent.
Small room, sink in front of the bed, poor breakfast, noisy
Really good position! The room and the bathroom were clean, not big but comfortable.
The best hotel in SF!
Ideally situated, Stratford hotel is the best selection if you need an affordable hotel for a city tour. The hotel building is old, the rooms represent the early XX. centuries American hotel atmosphere but it is much better equipped.
The staff were super friendly and the hotel was steps from Union square! Perfect for our birthday getaway! We enjoyed ourselves so much!
