Edwardian San Francisco Hotel
Ranked #147 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed 23 October 2013

A very nice boutique hotel. It is conveniently located on Market Street. It is reasonably priced for San Francisco. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are clean. Good WiFi. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled as a couple

We had a great stay at this Hotel in October 2013. It is brilliantly located on Market Street, right in front of an F Line tram stop, and only a short walk to the nearest subway / bus stops.

Our room, was on the front of the hotel and was spacious with a great modern bathroom.

The staff were friendly, chatty, informative and helpful when required.

I was hoping for anything but a generic hotel, and this is certainly what I got from this good old building, including an intimate wrangle with 'Stella' the Elevator who is 100 years young.

It is worth mentioning that Market Street is one of the busiest thoroughfares in San Francisco, and there is a fair amount of noise from traffic and people (including many noisy 'Winos') which may make it into your room, but this didn't bother us at all, but be warned this can be a noisy city.

The hot water plumbing could do with some attention, as this can be a little temperamental, but in a way added to the charm.

A great city, sad to leave. Hope we can come back to the Edwardian at some point in the future.

Room Tip: If you need quiet, use a room at the back.

We loved the hotel and the staff were great, very friendly and helpful in telling us how to get around town on transit. The old fashion elevator was fun, room was VERY nice, bed VERY comfortable and bathroom nice as well, clean. The parking lot was just across the street about a block away and had plenty of space to park, nice plus. Public transportation is right in front and was easy to use.

That being said, I have to say the restaurant next door uses wood fire stove, I read the reviews before booking and did not think it would be as bad as reported, but it was pretty bad. They are working on a way to eliminate that "problem" with the owner of the restaurant. There are a lot of homeless people sleeping on side walks and drug dealers which was not pleasant to walk past/through.

We would have paid at least double maybe triple for the same room if we had stayed in a more "desirable" location, so all in all was glad we chose this hotel as we spent more on meals during our stay to San Fran then the hotel.

Room Tip: The front desk has fans. Starbucks coffee is about 3 blocks down, but coffee in lobby is pretty goo...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.
The Amazing Cafe Zuni next door has just finished with the upgraded exhaust system as of today.
We hope that this will eliminate all smoke related complaints for our hotel.

Sincerely,

The Edwardian Hotel

Reserved this boutique hotel in a 100-year-old building based solely on online info and pics, so I was a bit nervous about what I would actually find. To my relief, it looked just as fresh and crisp as the photos. Bold colors and great designer touches like the pair of Philippe Starck Ghost Chairs in my room. Location is great for getting around the city and the desk staff is very personable. Rooms are tiny, but that was fine for me. Main downsides: No A/C or fans, so those who like it cool will need to open a window. Unfortunately, this lets in a substantial amount of street noise and light so take ear plugs and a mask if you plan on sleeping. Overall, nice digs for the price.

Room Tip: Consider higher floors to keep outside noise to a minimum.

Just spent the night in this small hotel and was very pleased on all accounts. It's been recently renovated, so the rooms, though small, are clean, fresh and most comfortable. Love the old-modern details, like the old-time telephones and clocks and the modern soft towels and ultra-comfortable bed, and the hot shower. And the staff we had was simply awesome: Sal was so gracious in helping us get there and get parked as well as getting me a small lamp for reading and getting us to local restaurants. Leah was also very wonderful the next day with her friendliness and her assistance-- hopefully the management will work to keep these two people. The location,as other reviews have said, is central, so it's easy to access other parts of the city. All in all, this hotel is well worth its reasonable price and I will definitely stay here when I'm in the city again.

Room Tip: My room did not face the street; it was sunny with a large window i could open for some air, so i sl...

Hello Dear Community!
This Hotel is aweful! really. Rooms smell very very bad due to smoke caused by the steak house grill downstairs. All my clothes was stinking so much that people have turned around and started talking about me. even in stores small kids were saying: mommy it smells like barbecue!

I really recommend you to check other hotels in SF. After 2 days i canceled the stay and went to another Hotel. If you need a good hotel check out my second review for a good clean and cheep hotel in SF. Greetings guys!

Visited SF for the first time with a friend and were hesitant about booking here because we didn't know the neighborhood and saw that many of the comparable hotels (as far as price) seemed less than pleasant. First off, the location turned out to be great! We were overwhelmed by the size of the city and just started exploring near the hotel and ended up following Market down to the Castro without really trying. Walking in, the lobby is small and nicely designed. Sal greeted us and made sure to answer any questions that we had and explained the elevator was out of order (only downside), but then offered to carry our bags up four flights for us. We're young so we could handle it ourselves, but appreciated the offer! The room was small, decent sized bathroom, and overall simple. The room clearly had new beds (ridiculously comfortable. best you'll find in any hotel), new paintjob (pink), and a fashionable lamp hanging over the bed. It was comfortable and had the amenities we needed, which isn't much when you just need a place to rest, sleep, and shower. Sal was amazing. He helped recommend places, showed a genuine interest in our plans for the day, and gave us directions so that we weren't so nervous about traveling the city. Note to anyone staying here: there's a restaurant on the first floor, so if you leave your window open, your room might smell like barbeque food... but wasn't a huge problem. The F line ran right in front of the hotel and you could take it all the way to the wharf or the other way to Castro, so that was convenient. Would certainly stay there again, and hopefully Sal is still there!
