My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! It was nothing too fancy and perfect for our mini vacay. We never had any problems with the shared bathroom and the manager was very helpful and informative. I loved it and def would stay here again :)

The Luz Hotel on Geary Street was perfect. Affordable, spotlessly clean, comfortable room. Sink in the room with toilet and shower located down the hall. Never had to wait for either the toilet or the shower on my two day stay. The staff are friendly, the location is close to everything, lots of restaurants, groceries, and cafes nearby. The walk...

The hotel was perfect! Nice and clean room, good price, very good location - one of the main streets, 10 minutes walk to city center. And what is the most important the owner of Luz hotel is very helpful! If you need anything he is always willing to help you! It was great stay!

From booking my stay at the Luz back in February, the hotel staff were super helpful from the get go.

Perfect location for our four days in San Fransisco. Close to Union Square, nightlife and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and were able to fit us in for an extra night as I wanted to stay on here rather than the hotel I had booked elsewhere. Small hotel with small rooms, some with private bathrooms, some shared, but... More

Our hosts were very friendly and helpful (told us breakfast places and which buses we needed to catch), we had a lovely room with comfortable bed. Lovely old building.

First of all, I am a resident of this hotel, one of the few. Mostly we get travellers and students from all over.
