I and my wife stayed in the Hotel Abri 2 nights, the room was not huge but very clean decor 4 star hotel. The staff was very helpful and the location fantastic Hotel in downtown San Francisco.
Next year we plan to go back to San Francisco and Abri will be our Hotel.

My wife and sons just spent 4 days in SF at the Hotel Abri and we had a great time. And I would say that our stay at the Hotel Abri was just as good if not better than another recent stay at the Inn on Union Square, which is also a boutique hotel. That said, there is an issue or two that you need to come prepared for.

To get the greatest enjoyment from this hotel, you need to get a suite, which is very inexpensive compared to surrounding hotels regular room rates. And, you do need an interior room (I think the suites are all on the interior). The rooms facing the street can be very noisy until late at night, but you run into this at any small hotel. If you want top notch rooms with no noise and are willing to pay $400 per night, then stay at the Parc 55. Also, this hotel is not very tall, with only about 5 floors, so you are not going to get a room with a view. This hotel is for those who don't want the standard cookie cutter Marriott or Hyatt rooms and what something a little more quaint.

And at a little more than $200 per night, plus tax, etc., you can get a great two room suite at Hotel Abri, with a king sized bed in one room (which was wonderful) and a fold out couch in the other. The room includes a very small refrigerator. There is also a small window air conditioner for cooling, but I doubt that this is necessary. Other hotels, like the Inn on Union Square only have a ceiling fan.

The hotel was very clean, the people at the door and reception were helpful and friendly, and housekeeping did an excellent job. There is a very nice Italian restaurant with entry through the hotel that provides room service and the food is excellent, but the staff can also arrange reservations at other restaurants. Like many small hotels, they did not have a pool or fitness center, so that is a consideration if you have children with you.

Seeing that our luggage was lost for the first day and a half, the hotel provided toiletries for us which was helpful. They have a very small offering of wines and snacks for treats, but no sodas as I recall. At night in the lobby they have a small sample of a "drink of the day" which we enjoyed.

Being in Union Square, you are at a central location which makes getting around town very easy. The hotel is right next to the Powell Street streetcar turnaround for easy sightseeing down to the Warf. And the shopping in the immediate area includes a large number of high end stores, top restaurants,and the Westfield Shopping Mall. You are also easy walking distance to the Moscone Convention Center. If you like eating some meals in your room, Try Bristol Farms on the lower level of the Westfield Mall just a couple of blocks away. Wonderful bakery and upscale ready to eat foods, full deli, pizza, etc., along with a small but well stocked grocery.

Perfect location, great hotel - So two thumbs up for our stay at Hotel Abri!

Room Tip: A suite on the interior is a must here.

I typically don't write reviews, especially bad ones. But I feel I need to warn potential future customers on what they may expect.
1) Central area, close to the Powell BART stop. However, it feels quite unsafe on the street.
2) Very poor noise isolation. Avoid rooms on the street if you really want to go to this hotel.
3) Slowest complementary internet connection ever seen. Hard to even send a small attachment by email.
4) I was charged twice the amount I reserved for. The issue seems to be under investigation, still waiting for a good reason of why that would happen.

Perfect location situated between Union Square and Westfield. Staff was great! We had booked a suite and were upgraded to a premium suite. Large screen televisions with Direct TV. I'd definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not recommend a courtyard view as you'll miss out on the city. Go with the street view!

We only stayed here 1 night. The room was on the small side. Location is very good, central. The pub/ restaurant next door was linked to the hotel. It was very good for happy hour for drinks - wine only 3$ a glass. We had breakfast here and that was pricey.
The hotel was very close to the main shops in town and Westfield Shopping Centre.

The hotel staff were just awesome, enough said. The rooms are very nice and taken care off, some rooms may be smaller but they are well taken care of and they feel more at home kinda feeling than that of a corporate hotel setting where you feel your actually in a hotel.

I will definitely stay again next time I visit, perfect location to everything around that you would want to see.

The only issue I had was no gym, they have a place they use to go to gym but its 15.00 per day per person to use with the discount. But If you like to walk and tour you do not need the gym, The hills and places to go are a great walk.

A very centrally located hotel, a two minute walk to union square.

The staff are lovely and the wifi is free.

There is no gym which is always disappointing, especially when you are jet-lagged and wake up at 5am with no where to go and nothing to do.

The rooms are big, clean, with big screen TVs and comfy beds.

If the amenities list is unimportant to you and what you want is a great room in the heart of the city, then this is a good place to come.
