Bathroom sink was not in bathroom but in the room itself. Shower nozzle was very high, not good for short people. No rubber mat in shower/tub to...

Loved the location. Clean and comfortable. Walgreens is right next door for cable passes/toilettetries. Cable car stop right across the way. Hop on hop off bus stops a block down. Again, location was just amazing.

The Herbert Hotel was prime location for everything you needed in San Fran. You literally walk out the door to cable car, shops, bars and restaurants. The staff at the front desk were more than happy to help you get to the tourists attractions sights of the area. Would stay here again.

We had one of the small rooms and it was perfect for what we needed. Sleeping and showering. The location of the hotel is perfect. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area not to mention it is minutes away from BART and the trolley.
