This is a nice little hotel in the Union Square/Theater District area. I got it for a significantly discounted January price (special limited-time offer), the regular price being higher later in the year. However, considering the SF hotel prices in general, which have inflated significantly in the last few years, it's still a good deal anytime. It was perfect for... More

San Francisco is a really beautiful city. However, the accommodation price in San Francisco is rather expensive. The best thing about this hotel is its central location. The price is reasonable with such a good location and not located in dangerous neighbourhood. Its is just 2 minutes walk fron Union Square and near Powell Street Bart station which is connected...

My partner and I stayed here for the last leg of our 5 week tour around America. We stayed here for 4 nights in the second week of January 2014 and got a really good deal. Think it was around $110 including tax per night. The hotel is very well located and is just off union square on sutter street.... More

We just stayed here for 3 nights with a night in between in Yosemite. I was quite skeptical & only booked as the city had limited availability (be careful of this). We had a great stay & for $99-$129 per night the hotel was great. Old & a bit outdated but excellent location, comfortable & clean rooms. Bathrooms need a... More

Several people had complained that the decor was dated, but it actually felt quite homely. Felt more like being in rural England than San Fran. Staff were very friendly and helpful about what to spend my limited time going to see. My only complaint about the room is the heater was quite noisy. It would randomly make a loud noise... More

After two days in SF we checked in at Beresford on NYE, very positively surprised. The guy in the front desk were really welcoming and since it was NYE, he gave us a free bottle of champagne :) After two nights in a five star hotel in SF, I really hoped I would have found this hotel earlier so we...

My mum and i stayed here for a night. All staff were very friendly, and the rooms were nice and clean. The location is great for the price. Union square was only a short walk from where we were.

While decent enough for the price, the lack of wifi or internet was disappointing in this otherwise high tech town. A bit of lobby remodeling is in order and rooms are small. But the location near Union Square is convenient.

We were worried that the great price may mean a mediocre hotel. When we arrive, the bellhop was so helpful and polite. Valet parking was $27 (w/in &out) which is cheap for area. The front desk was fast. The hotel felt quaint but fun. Breakfast was very basic- but will hold you until you find a real meal. No wifi... More
