“Excellent for the Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for 3 nights, and felt the room was adequate for the price & location. We did ask for our rooms to be on the higher floors, to give some distance from the street activitiy. Room wasn't huge, but it was clean and comfortable. Close to great shopping, good food and easy to get to other areas if town. I would stay there again as I would much rather spend funds on good eats and other aspects of trip than break the budget with a expensive/spacious hotel.

Stayed June 2014, travelled on business

Stayed at the hotel for a week. Loved the people here and the room was perfect for me. They have character, an ideal location, and comfortable accommodations. Ate at the restaurant downstairs one night and they were also super friendly and I had a very nice meal. There are a million restaurant an shopping option in the area of course.

Location was good and easy to get to from the airport via the train.
Room was a good size and the bed was comfy, bathroom was a little dated but functioned well.
Tube stop and trams very near, a few cafes and bars near by.
Would stay here again if at the right price,.

Although our room was a bit tired, it was clean and really comfortable and plenty big enough for a big city break. The staff were polite. Great location near Bart,cable car and union square. Walking distance to every must do location- union square,nob hill,Alamo square, ferry building and fisher mans wharf. The cafe venue a few doors up was good value and quality, and the attached SOMA did a good breakfast bagel. I had been to san Francisco some years before and was saddened to see increase in homeless, which is a little intimidating toward dusk or early morning. But this is not unique to 5th street and Powell street. The genuine homeless are no bother and leaves you feeling lucky, but they do attract some less savoury groups.

Room Tip: Room on 5th street made you feel close to city life, you heard it sleep wake up and heard its secret...

A smaller hotel this place is in a great location very close to the BART. Easy to get to, easy to get around. The rooms were a decent size with a comfy king-size bed. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff were helpful, good breakfast place on one side and a good pub on the other. It also backs on to a large underground mall with many shops and a good food court. Would definitely stay here again.
