As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.

The location and price is the great thing about this motel. It is steps from good restaurants and cheap souvenir shops. The bed was hard as a rock, super noisey with neighbours and cars on the street, tv didn’t work but was a clean room.

Bring your earplugs if you are facing the street. The hotel is in a restaurant district, so it is very busy and nosy because your wall is basically a huge window overlooking the streets. Not fancy to say the least very limited cable. Great customer service. No refrigerator. The

We really enjoyed staying near the Chinese and Italian neighborhoods. It was a new experience for us to not stay in traditional touristy areas. It was a short walk to Chinatown shops and off-the-beaten path Chinese restaurants. It was another short walk to good Italian

Don't think the hotel offers a shuttle, it's more a motel

Yes, this hotel has air conditioning. If possible get one of the rooms on the second floor with a view of the Coit tower.

Absolutely the area is safe for kids. It is in Chinatown about three blocks from the tenderloin. The tenderloin is now pretty mild compared to comparable areas in NYC and elsewhere. Our one complaint is that the area is fairly loud in terms of street cleaners, garbage men, and similar amenities, which start very early in the am.
