        Got a good deal on this hotel that is why we stayed. Fish and Farm restaurant is really nice. Complimentary lemonade. Staff were great especially Kemaf who organized empty boxes for us so we could post our shopping home to Australia.

        Noise. It was so noisy until about 3am. They should think about replacing the windows with thicker glass or something. Extremely hard to sleep with all of the noise. Didn't like that you just has to wait for the hotel to turn on the heaters as it was really cold when we were there.

        I liked that the hotel is located close to Union Square, and many stores around, I really liked how helpful are the people who work there, they were very very kind, congratulations for them, and I liked that you offer diferent tours, the shuttle etc.

        The location with relation to the Hilton (as we were in town for a conference there) and shopping/restaurants.

        The hotel itself was very old with thin walls and a poorly regulated heating system. The radiators need to be updated!

        Reasonably priced, at edge of union square neighborhood. Room was pretty basic, mostly what I expected for the price.

        Street outside was very noisy at night

        Small and human

        Great to have a (free-of-charge) safe, better if it would hold a 15" laptop.

        6.6

        strategic location, room furniture not too bad, im glad i got a white blanket but my fren got the red n he was so mad!

        despite all the noises came across(expected but front desk told us will not ok since we are getting a room facing the back but we still heard it, hard to imagine how bad for those rooms facing the street; so unlucky the lift breakdown and we need to carry our luggage by stairs!

        5.0

        The restaurant had a good selection of food and the hotel staff were efficient

        The carpets and style of room were very old and worn, beds uncomfortable The stairs in particular were extremely dangerous with very narrow steps

      • Family with children
        4.6

        Staff was kind and helpful. The location is perfect. Close to the main attractions and Union Square

        Rooms and hotel are very old. Beds aren't comfortable. Rooms to small. Bathroom too small and old. The hotels needs urgent refurbishment.

      • Family with children

        The heater was on all day long making the room too hot and it was noisy at night

      • Group of friends
        2.8

        Especially the location of the hotel, becuse it was near from downtown.

        Nothing, evrey things was really bad, I shocked. The bedroom was so dirty also bathroom evrey things was dirty.. I didn't like the hotel.

      • Single

        Very cosy hotel and good value for money.

        Only one lift which was small. The stairsteps were small and felt steep.

        Location

        I had to change rooms because of a malfunction--water dripped through the ceiling into the smoke alarm. The staff were not very accommodating about it, and did not offer a room upgrade, a free day of wireless, or anything in order to make up for the inconvenience of having to change rooms. Also, there is no insulation whatsoever and it's noisy. I heard the elevator bell ring every time the elevator arrived on my floor.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        I love the location and the staff are very helpful, friendly and accomodating. The room is very clean.

      • Group of friends
        2.8

        I did not like the fact that the toilet leaked, that the lights didn't work, that the breakfast was appalling, that the breakfast room was grubby, and that the hotel was very (1 block away) from a very dangerous area of San Francisco. I stayed with a female colleague and we did not go out as we felt extremely uncomfortable about the menace in the streets. I am a seasoned traveller, so this is not said lightly,

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The location is excellent. Staffs are very helpful and nice. The price for the location is fair. I like the price of their valet parking as well.

        It is noisy. Particularly, when someone (in some other room) flashed toilet and using shower. It is loud enough to wake me up sometimes. However, it seems to be old building so it is understandable.
