Highly recommended, very convenient to everything and so, so helpful front desk! Rate much better than others in this same area. I could walk everywhere I wanted or needed to go. You won't be disappointed, beds are small but I knew that when I booked it.

Really nice little hotel near union square. It's near public transport so a great location. The rooms are a little small and out dated but that what makes it. The reception staff were really nice and friendly except the older gentleman on nights who didn't even say bye after checking out.

Clean, updated boutique style hotel. Easily accessible from a main street. Not very noisy considering location to busy area. Very nice accommodating front desk staff, concierge and housekeeping team. Well priced for San Fran, small rooms but goal was to sightsee and stay outside.

Decent value, small hotel room size but on par for historic hotels in SanFrancisco. Good coffee and tea selection in the morning. Things I wasn't pleased about - management permitted guests to smoke right outside the door, when laws state a minimum distance of 15 feet. Walked through a gauntlet of smokers each evening, bummer. Other surprise was the street...

I stayed here for 6 nights and I'm glad I did. The location is perfect, so close to Union Square, shops, coffee shops etc. The room itself was one that had been refurbished so everything was quite new, modern and clean. There was some noise from the street at night even though I was on one of the higher floors,...

Clean room. Friendly staff full of local knowledge. Although we had a small room it was sufficient. the only problem we incurred was a loud neighbour the last day we stayed. Old style and great. Very easy to get around the city. close to the centre of town.

The staff was great, and this hotel is definitely a nice place to stay. I was there for a business trip, but wasn't prepared for the lack of air conditioning - I should know better, but given it's August in SF I really wasn't thinking about it. Room was clean, and bed was very comfortable. Overall a great value.
