I stayed there many years ago. (40+) and found it to be about like it is described now. However, try and find a decent room for the price - I lived in San Francisco for many years and at $63. a nite, Quit your gripin. When I was down on my luck, I worked the kitchen and as a waiter... More

I stayed here in 6/06 in a street-facing room, 4th floor. The room was noisy: a Fire Dept. not far down the street, sends engines driving with loud horns 24/7, just below the non-insulated window. There's no real view anyway, so stick to a back room. The TVs have no remote. When I asked for one, I got the run-around... More

For the price, rooms are comfortable and clean and quiet for the most part. The manager and assistants at the front desk are very courteous and attentive and make every effort to be accommodating. Adequate full breakfast. Don't know about the dinners but I overheard someone say it's a lot better now because they rotate the menu. Nice computers if... More

The hotel was really dirty and some of the front desk staff were very rude. Besides, the ceiling leaked during the night!! Yes it really liked from the head lamb. God knows what was that water? This hotel must be your last resort.

While a bit quaint in decor, the Ansonia is most truly the worst hotel I have experienced for customer service. Some of the front desk staff are most friendly and helpful, while others do not hesitate to show they hold guests in utter contempt. For a traveller on a budget who only has to spend one night, my suggestion is... More

I am staying at the Ansonia right now. I checked in last night for a 6-night stay. I have stayed at many B&B hotels (which this place is). I believe that it is a good value because for $63 per night inlcuding tax (14% hotel tax in San Francisco) I receive: * a private room with bath (lots of hot... More
