Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, yes it is old but the LOCATION is brilliant and the level of cleanliness top notch. You definitely wouldn't find better for your money. It is a bit noisey on bin day but you are in the heart of a city.

Great location. Clean hotel and friendly staff. Bathrooms very tiny, no aircon, lots of street noise even on top floor. Plumbing was a bit dodgy but it was rectified with a plumber sent within a half hour. The lobby was very hot. Staff cannot be faulted they were great and for a budget hotel it was ok. This hotel met... More

I stayed for a full week, partly on business to attend a conference, but also meeting family over the weekend. No place is cheap in San Francisco, but this hotel had everything I needed: a comfortable room in a good location where my sister could join me over the weekend. I saved at least $50 a night at least (with... More

So stayed in this hotel in San Francisco with husband for 3 nights . It is a budget hotel and you will be hard pressed to find a hotel with private bathroom for the same price in the Union square area . First impressions were ' oh my God ' . The room was small and fusty smelling but closer... More

The hotel is in a great area, central to tons of restaurants and the tour buses. It's an old building and has been kept up decently. The service is amazing, everyone we talked to was very friendly. The rooms were very clean (if a bit musty smelling). The room wasn't large, and had one double bed, a nightstand and chair... More

Just minutes walk to union sq, which remained lively throughout the evenings, this place has got "location" going for it. The room did not have "a view", but was huge. The building itself feels like there is some history about it. Check in was smooth and there is a handily placed convenience store just a block away (opposite direction from... More

Location was close to shops, restaurants, sites and public transport. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and everything they did was thorough, which shows how much they value their customers. However the rooms appeared to be in desperate need for an update. The private bathroom was cramped and the toilet had flushing problems which was rectified. Bed was comfortable and the... More

Good location near to the action in downtown SF. The guys on reception are very friendly and helpful and it's all very laid back and informal. The building is cool, directly opposite an imposing theatre but the room is a little dated - although it didn't bother me, I suppose at some stage it must be due an upgrade. No... More

We were in the 6th floor and felt as though the room had a huge smoke extractor-like next to the window, working day and night. Unbearable noise. Despite the heat, could not even think to open the window due to the noise. The hotel is located in union square, well-connected but far from being the nicest place of the city.... More

The place is well placed. You can go anywhere from there, specially in downtown. Not that expensive if compared with others hotels. The hotel is old, it's clean. I got to tell you that I miss a minibar in the room...it will make the difference! Sometimes at night is a bit hard to sleep because it is noise.
