Cost of parking
Bed was dirty like if they never change sheets, fan wasn't working !!! Pictures look nice then it was in person bed was super hard !
No airconditioning and slow elevator.
Great location and staff.
Noisy at night, room was next to a jazz club
The rooms were small and stuffy causing my partner to snore and keep me awake!!
The staff were really lovely, welcoming you with a smile! WIFI is good also. Fantastic location at a fraction of the price of some of the other hotels in the same area.
Loud at night due to location
Location, staff, room and breakfast! Everything
too loud at the night
friendly staff and good location
Good price for downtown SF. Older hotel but in good condition and clean. Decent breakfast.
The bed is small
close to Macy's and the Union Square. Good location for travelers
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 very small room and it definitely had a smell as some of the other reviewers have said.
It was a fantastic location - so close to all the shops!
Breakfast is absolutely embarasingly horrible and utterly lack luster. A joke really.
Amazing central location. Cute little clean hotel
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.
Cannot make a hot drink inside the room
Staff are very helpful
Extreme amount of hallway and room boos after midnight. Actually after 100 am. Heard neighbour vomiting after partying
Location cleanliness and friendly staff
Didn't stay long enough - so can't really comment.
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.
very nice location yet fairly small room. close to union square, walking distance to Chinatown. Bus stop to Fisherman's wharf.
Water pump for shower is not so function.
Location is great and staff is helpful. Overall is very nice and suggest for leisure traveler as very convenient for access to all area
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.
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.
The breakfast is so poor, makes me leave the it and eat outside.
Jack was very helpful and make things better.
room, bed, lightning, no desk, amd announces a breakfast that is nonexistent.
