I have to say that this wouldn't have been the area I would've selected to stay in a hotel, but I get what I got. Aida is old & has that old smell to it, but it was built in 1912. They cannot change to make the hotel look like new because it is a Historical Landmark. Very ornate in spots. The feeling is that you are in that old era(music in elevator). With the exception of all of the homeless around that area, who don't seem to bother people other than other homeless people, it was a nice stay. The first night I wasn't so sure, but no ghost, no bumps in the nights, no sounds. Very serene. The management very attentive & desire to make a secure hotel for their customers, & there were plenty customers. We were fortunate enough to have a room with a private bath, so we were lucky, but we have been to Europe & the idea of shared baths in the hallway aren't really that bad either; just not as convenient. If you don't mind the rif-raf stay. It is very convenient to BART, trolley's, electric buses, stores/pharmacy, variety of fast food restaurants, etc. Try it for the experience. You'll like the nostalgia.
