If you are looking for great value and great location in SF, this is the place! A find in a very expensive city! The room was SO clean! The help at the front desk were helpful and friendly. We will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect for a small, cozy room. Nice neighborhood and quiet at night. They have hair dryer in the bathroom. The front desk has iron and iron board. There is no elevator so you have to carry everything by yourself up the stairs. The room was clean and very nice!

I agree with previous reviews that the hotel is a good price compared to other San Francisco hotels. We stayed in room 105. It was very small. Just enough room for a queen bed and not much else. The bed was comfortable. Our biggest complaint was the noise. I specifically asked for a quiet room and was told that this...

Stayed one night traveling for business. All my usual places closer to Market St. & Union Square were WAY above my allotted State of CA rate allowance, so my coworker and I tried The Metro Hotel. I'll be back! Very friendly staff and room 101 was plenty big, exceedingly clean and well-situated. Rode BART to Mission & 16th, then Uber...

Good hotel in well situated area .Clean but small room.Easy to go anywhere in S.F. by bus or by foot.Staff is friendly and helpful. Not expensive for the area. You can eat a good breakfast at the oakside cafe (bagel) and to eat noon at a reasonable price just go in front at the Thai restaurant.

The Metro Hotel is a basic hotel, which is reflected in the good value cost. The rooms are small but nice, and noise wasn't a problem other than occasional coming and goings in the corridor. Location is up in the historic part of san francisco where all the traditional houses are. The main 60's hippy street and main park isnt...

Our family of four stayed three nights, and the Metro was great for our needs. The staff was really helpful and delightful, the rooms are immaculate (but tiny!), and the location is central and easy to get to and from.

We had a tiny room with two singles and the bathroom was so small it had to have a pocket door. No appliances except a hair dryer. This is not a bad thing. This is how you get affordable accommodations in San Francisco! It had charm out the wazoo and the staff were exceptionally friendly. I could hear a voice...

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
