Lovely hotel in very good area to get around. Gregory, and the rest of the staff, were very friendly and helpful. They gave us all the advice we needed and the best ways to get around. The breakfast box was also ideal and had plenty for everyone inc free tea/coffee in reception area.

Okay room for a budget stay between area and money nice cafes couple blocks away. nothing much around though. We got a room overlooking neighbor's nice green backyard garden. However, the window can not be opened to let air in, so the room at times smells musty and humid (especially the bathroom). The room itself like other reviewers in tripadvisor...

The rooms are of ample size with a clean modern look. Lots of orange so maybe good for those from Holland! Shaun on the front desk was wearing an excellently groomed moustache and was very helpful. Location is within walking distance of most sights given SF is quite spread out - the neighbourhood felt safe and there were ample amenities...

I stayed here for 6 nights while I was in SF for business. The location was good (about 5-6 blocks from Union Square), so it was within walking distance for most of my meetings (which were scattered around downtown). The staff were super friendly and I was even able to check-in to my room 3 hours early. They offered secure...

I spent a week there and the location couldn't be better, a few blocks from Union Square and you can take a MUNI bus right on the same street of the hotel or 1 or 2 blocks away depending where you are heading to. There's some convenience stores and small cafes steps away, a pizzeria and even a laundry place....
