We had room no. 507 and stayed for 6 nights. The room was not as big as you may expect but absolutely clean and nicely decorated. Due to the location on the 5th floor with view to an inner courtyard it was pretty quiet and bright. The room had a flatscreen TV and ironing board and iron in a built in closet. There was also a hair dryer and small shampoo/soap/body lotion bottles were available in the bathroom which could need more shelves to place your cosmetics.
The breakfast room is located right behind the reception on the 2nd floor and there are a couple of stools where you can sit and enjoy coffee, bagels or toast, orange juice and apples or bananas. You're fee to take the breakfast to your room, as trays are available. The breakfast is not overwhelming but a good quick start into the day with a cup of coffee and a cream cheese bagel. There are also soda and snack machines availabe on the 3rd and 4th floor.
Staff is really friendly and helpful. The room was superclean and cleaned every day even with fresh sheets. The only problem on warmer days was that we couldn't open the window to the extend we needed to so the air was sometimes quite warm.
But all in all I can really recommend this place, charming and clean hotel for an unbeatable price in an Downtown location. Very close to Chinatown and Union Square, nice walk to Fisherman's Wharf.
