After arriving at the Metro Hotel to celebrate by 40th Birthday I discovered that I had no reservation. My own booking mistake! The staff amazingly phoned, price shopped and booked an alternate location nearby for me. I was blown away. Half of our party stayed at the hotel and raved about the location, staff and cleaniness of their room. Thank...

I was so impressed with The Metro Hotel. My friend and I stayed for two nights while in San Francisco. The hotel was conveniently located, clean, smelled nice in the halls, and was the best priced hotel I found in the San Francisco area! I loved the people who worked there. I had a lot of questions and got great...

We stayed here for a couple of days in August 2014 and absolutely loved it. I think it technically is in an area called The Castro (I could be wrong) but wherever it is, its in a great spot! Lots of restaurants near by, walking distance to Golden Gate Park and not far from all of the big touristy areas...

The room wasn't very big but just fine for us. We had a room which faced the street, which was a bit noisy, so if you are a light sleeper kind that in mind. Location is very hip and cool neighborhood with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The centre is around the corner with the bus.

For an inexpensive hotel this place is clean and well situated in Haight. The staff were All super friendly and offered lots of good advice for things to do and see and eat in SF. Room was small with no safe but clean and adequate. Highly recommend.

We stayed at The Metro Hotel for one night whilst passing through San Francisco. Simple, stylish and excellent value for money. We had room 110 which I would recommend even if you don't need the additional bed in the separate room as this room was much bigger than the rooms occupied by other people in our party. Even though the...

We choose the Metro for it's affordable nightly price and location outside of normal tourist track, in an attempt to experience the city as close to an actual resident would as possible for the two days we would be in the city. Upon arrival, around noon on June 29th, we spoke with Shana at the front desk/window and she informed...

The Metro is intimate, and the perfect place to stay if you want to be away from the tourist crowds. We got up each morning and ran in Golden Gate Park (it's that close), and stopped on the way back at a fabulous local bakery for a couple of coffees. We walked to Haight-Ashbury (twice, b/c it's that close, too!),...

The hotel was nothing special but was perfect for the low price! It was in a great location to get to Haight-Ashbury, golden gate park, Alamo square, the Fillmore, and bars for late night fun. The room is little, but we didn't spend much time in it, so it worked fine. My only complain was stained sheets/blanket. They looked and...

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. It's a perfect oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds around Fisherman's Wharf and downtown. Easy access to downtown, the Castro, Haight Ashbury. The room is small, with a small bathroom with shower only, but very very clean. Very cheerful and helpful staff. Wonderful garden in the...

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.
