“Definitely Not Recommended”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Thankfully, we only booked one night at the Andrews Hotel. The Queen room we booked was so small it was a challenge for two people to move around. The bathroom had a tub/shower and the tiniest corner sink I have ever seen. The sink was so small and so close to the toilet that you couldn't actually stand in front of it. The carpet had not been vacuumed - there was even a dirty q-tip on the middle of the floor (very hard to miss if you were actually cleaning the room). The continental breakfast consisted of pastries, fruit, coffee and tea - set out on each floor.

We arrived close to 11:00 pm, so fortunately we didn't have to spend much time at this hotel. I did mention at check out that I was disappointed in the room - very tiny and not clean. She shrugged, said it was a "Victorian style," and said she would let housekeeping know about the carpet.

I'm not sure how this hotel manages to get good reviews - possibly there is a wide variety of sizes and quality of the rooms.

Older hotel (1905 building) aspiring to be "boutique." Nicely appointed, good staff, clean room, new paint and great continental breakfast. Kudos to the small cafe next door with wine service. That was a nice touch. AND the street noise was unbelievable! Screams, drunken profanity and garbage trucks at 6 AM on Sunday morning. Friends on other side of hotel reported nightclub noise until 3 AM. No matter how good the coffee is or hot the shower...if you can't sleep...what's the point? Bring ear plugs and sleeping pills.

Room Tip: Sleep above the third floor

My partner and I spent two nights here, and were immediately struck by how friendly the hotel staff are -- they know, and love their city, and they are brimming full of useful tips you won't find in most guide books. Make the most of them! The location is absolutely fantastic, about ten minutes walk (uphill) from BART, twenty minutes or so from Chinatown, and near Market Street, Union Square, and the start of the Cablecar line. Breakfast was 'continental' style and is served in the hallway on each floor -- tea, coffee, orange juice, fruit and pastries. It's rather sparse, but the pastries are tasty enough, and it'll set you up until you can find somewhere for brunch. Rooms are cosy, with plenty of character and the original features are mostly present, so it really does still feel a little like 1905.

The main downside? With the building being constructed in 1905, some of the rooms are small. Our room was 407, and the bathroom was so small that I had to sit on the toilet sideways because the sink was directly above it! The mirror was also directly in front of the bed. If you like a little bit more space, I'd clarify at check-in. Also, with being near Union Square, there was some traffic and street noise. I'm a light sleeper, and it wasn't enough to disturb me.

If the price was right, I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

Room Tip: Avoid the 07s! They're on the corner of the hotel, and the smallest rooms on offer. There's...

We spent a couple of nights here 2/11-2/12. A very nice small downtown hotel. We enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine every evening. Very clean, very quaint little place in a good location. Would stay here again. We were on the 4th floor and there was some street noise.

Good location near Union Square, Cablecar, Market Street and BART. The room was small (bathroom!), but sufficient for one person. On arrival the dustbin wasn't emptied, but that was the only serviceproblem. Breakfast served in the same level in front of the room was quite nice, quality of breakfast standard.
Would choose the Andrews again.

We are repeaters and have always enjoyed our stay at this hotel with character. Spent three nights this time, Staff exceptionally helpful. Continental breakfast available in hallways of each floor with trays to take the goodies to your room. Coffee, tea, water, and fruit always available in the lobby. Fino, the Italian restaurtant adjacent to the hotel offerred very good Italian food for dinner. We often coupled it with our free glass of wine, eating early before it got too crowded. Will very happily return on our next visit to the City.

Room Tip: Higher floors on the front have very good views but are noisier, I believe.

I have spent 5 nights here while attending a conference.
The room was clean and comfortable.
The staff was nice and helpful, a nice extra is the complimentary hot drinks and fruit all day.
