"Good for couples, singles and tourists."
Staff was helpful and pleasant. Temperature in room was uneven. Last night was too warm with no way to turn it down.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disappointed that no internet service is available in the rooms. Must go to lobby and even then it wasn't very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel has an old European feel"
I was concerned at first. The lobby, although it had quaint furniture and chandeliers which brought to mind many older European hotels I've visited, sort of lost credibility points with the chaos and disrepair of the front desk. With it's completely visible inner workings, casually dressed staff and beat up mail cubicles, it gave the distinct impression […] of an SRO or transient - cash only type of motel. So I went to my room with a bad attitude. (But don't stop reading yet). I saw the room as creepy because of the older furniture, and lack of puffy white duvet I've been seeing in the more modernly designed hotels. But after awhile, I just took it for what it was. It's an older hotel. Not part of a big chain and it was actually just fine. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were actually very nice. The elevator was always available and got me to the top floor incredibly fast. The toiletries were very nice. The mini bar was the least expensive in San Francisco, the location was good, the hotel was quiet. All in all, I can't say I have any complaints. I just had an odd initial reaction. Once again, it's not a modern chain so it doesn't have new flat screen tvs with all the cable channels, and jet tubs. In fact it only had a stall shower. But it was clean and bug free and in a good location. I would recommend it if you get a good price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed this hotel. It is clean and well kept up. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. The breakfast location has an old world charm about it, as well as the whole hotel. The breakfast was one of the best continental breakfasts we've had. The man at the front desk seemed hurried and not very welcoming. Otherwise the service was excellent. […] The porter was very nice and welcoming, as well as pleasant conversations we had with maids. We plan to go back to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"nice respite among high rise hotels"
the staff was great. only minus was lack of fruit at breakfast. but it was great to find a place that even included breakfast! Plus two nice quiet rooms in which to work with computers and printers provided! the bar opened at 5pm each evening & also offered a quiet and inexpensive way to wind down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible hotel close to Union Sq."
Dirty room. Poor breakfast. Unpolite hotel staff. I will never come back. Smell and noise in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
convenient location, basic room, but clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient to theaters,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ideal for short stay"
reasonably priced, convenient to union sq, clean and comfortable but on small sideGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for the price"
We stayed here for a long weekend, and it was perfect for our needs. It was clean, the staff was fantastic and the location is great. It is not an elegant hotel but the price reflects that. The room was small (as most older big city hotel rooms are),but the price was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location and price excellent"
I was pleasantly surprised given the reasonable rate. Room(2 doubles) was small but the bed was comfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Couldn't get better for the price"
this hotel is not brand new, but everything is clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a great location, and bar and breakfast (thought light) was a great touch. Internet on first floor only, but that worked for me. The rooms are small but comfortable. Has a bit of a community feel like a hostel, but with adults instead of 18-22 […] year olds (though there are some of those too). Plug-ins are a little scarce. i stayed here b/c it was half the cost of surrounding hotels in the area. Great hotel for the price -- I would absolutely recommend it and would absolutely stay again.

"good hotel for the money"
I usually stay at the Hilton but my daughter lives across the street from the Beresford and thought it would be easier. Having traveled throughout Europe I am used to smaller hotels and you pretty much get what you pay for. I was quite surprised how clean and comfortable it was, the staff were very nice and so helpful, not only with me but I noticed […] with other guests. I would stay again and I would recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"old very old"
Good for a night when there is nothing else. I wouldn't recommend bringing your date there. She might think your cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to enjoyable SF"
Our reception was friendly and professional,the staff was helpful,the location was wonderful for shopping,dining and all transportation.The Beresford is a well priced no frills hotel to base out of.I have stayed there as a single and recommend it.My only wish is that wi-fi extended to the upper floors.The first floor has wi-fi and several nice rooms […] to relax and communicate on the net...just not in your jammies!

the wireless didn't work, and my cell phone didn't have service in my tiny room. it hasn't been updated in decades, and the window neither closed nor opened, and overlooked a building that was a few feet away. Definitely did not match what was advertised.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very clean rooms good location very frendly staff willing to make our stay very pleasentGenuine Expedia guest review
Near chinatown, union square, cable cars, grace cathedral, nob hill, downtown, and the shops like nordstrom, bloomingdales, neiman marcus, macys, tiffany, dior, etc. You can take the cable cars ono block from the hotel to fisherman's wharf. Excellent ubicationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not for the price"
It's an older hotel in Union Square. For the price, I expected at least a fan in the room; however, we had to ask for a fan due to the heat and stuffiness of the room. The bathroom had a horrible patch job done behind the mirror and the furniture was old a very very worn. I would not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful location at a gr!eat price"
I have stayed at the Beresford lots of times. It is in a great location for meetings, with shopping. I think of the Beresford as a European tourist hotel. It's quiet, filled with a mix of younger to older tourists. It's modest but very comfortable, good beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient to Cable Car and Metro Transit. Room was clean, comfortable. Could open windows for fresh air. Neighborhood was noisy, but as expected for the area. Walking distance to many restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good inner city budget hotel."
Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Location is great - just a couple of blocks from Union Square. Just about what we would expect from an older, budget-rated, downtown hotel. We choose a hotel for location and price. We want a clean room and bathroom, and got that here. We don't plan to spend much time in the room except for sleeping, so the […] Beresford nicely met our needs. The "breakfast" room was dimly lit and pretty dingy - suggest they pay more attention to keeping it up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beresford was perfect! Excellent location, great service, clean rooms, fantastic value. Will definitely stay at this location on future trips to San Fran!! Wish I had known about this hotel years ago - 2 blocks from cable car stop and major shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful Hotel! An extremely a cute room!"
Our stay was beyond great! I will definitely be coming back! :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the beresford is the perfect san francisco experience for a quick stay at a great rate. Rooms are small and quiet and close to the square with a very cozy bar in the hotel. Mostly out of the country tourist staying at the hotel, which makes the experience nicer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and dilapidated does not mean Cozy and Unique"
This hotel has an excellent location but is in dire need of repairs, and the service at the front desk needs improvement. I am not sure when ripped wallpaper, broken beds, and mis-matched furniture became the definition of cozy and unique. but this hotel's best feature is the location...which it shares with many other hotels. I have stayed at many hotels […] in the Union Square area (Sir Francis Drake, Westin St. Francis, Handlery, Marriott, Nikko) but we chose this one based on the pictures and because the others were booked due to a convention. for the price, this was terrible. The issues were numerous, but the most outstanding were how poorly the room was. I knew it would be small....that is fine, but the TV remote didn't work, the shower head didn't work, the bed literally sloped to one side and was badly broken, the wall paper was ripped on the bathroom, and no two pieces of furniture matched in the room. IT looked like it was assembled at a garage sale! The staff at the front desk barely speak English, which was trouble for some of the guests from England that we witnessed trying to get help.

"Good value, great downtown location"
Good experience overall, but try to stay away from the upper floor rooms in the back, as you will hear a fairly significant roar from the air handling units on adjacent buildings. Transportation to and from the airport is reasonable and reliable if you don't have a car. Note the parking charge at this hotel if you do have a car...it will cost more than […] the shuttle.

Quaint but with modern ammenities. Great location close to Union Square.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Without exception, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room smelled good. I can't think of the last time I remember "smelling" a hotel room. At least, smelling a good smell. lol And it was very clean. We used public transportation and the hotel had easy access to the buses, the streetcars and the cable cars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room and bathroom were exceedingly small, otherwise it was agreat experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very neat hotel"
This is a very neat hotel in the financial district with a light continental breakfast. I had stayed there before, and came back because I liked it and its neighborhood. Found that they upgraded the bathroom from shower curtains to shower doors, and liked it even more.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location to restaurants and Union Square as well as Moscone Convention center. Like to have in room refridgerator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cheap hotel for mediocre quality. WiFi was not available in the entire hotel, so you had to find a hot spot most of the time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"European old world charm"
This European style hotel. is spotlessly clean, has a fantastic location and is a great place to stay. If it's American modern you want stay away. If it's old-world charm this hotel is where you want to be. It has all the basics and none of the bells and whistles.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was you get what you pay for. It was clean,the staff very helpful,the continential breakfast was basically non existant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent service. Ideal location. We will definitely return to this hotel when we are in San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room with small but perfect for one. Very clean the staff was fun and informative. Perfect central location Within walking distance to just about anywhere. I would definitely stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location; not fancy"
Service and most of the amenities were very good, although the property is showing its age. The rooms are small, the view from the window was a wall just several yards away, the window would not stay open and the shower head was malfunctioning. There were computers and wi-fi available in the lobby areas, but no wi-fi in the room. That said, the room […] was clean and the service was very friendly. The hotel has a very good pub on the first floor, and the complimentary continental breakfast included fresh fruit -- a nice touch. I have stayed there twice, and would do so again.

LOCATION No wifi in the rooms Mediocre breakfast CLEAN Comfortable bed Nice English style bar and friendly bartendersGenuine Expedia guest review
This a nice clean hotel ! The location is great. Its a few minutes from Unios Square and a few minutes from Chinatown. Best part of the hotel is the location. The room was small but very clean. The furniture was celan but outdated. Bathroom was clean. Over all it was a good clean and comffy room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel at great location but need improvement"
Great Location, good price. Good breakfast. But can't believe there is no hair dryer in the room!! No intenet!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great price, good hotel!"
Great hotel for the price! Clean rooms, upgraded TVs, warm water, what else can you ask for! The single beds are definitely snug, but again, for the price and location to Union Square it's really a great value for someone needing minimal time spent in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place made my vacation. Friendly staff, great location and a cozy hotel with character.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location near Union Square"
Comfortable rooms. Ice only on 1st floor. Heat cannot be controlled in rooms, so you are dependent on asking management downstairs to turn it down when it's too hot, which happens often. Excellent location near Union Square. Crib available. Queen room was larger and way more attractive and had nicer bathroom than room with 2 beds (1 single and 1 double). […] Overall good stay.

"good bargain place to stay"
Not a fancy place but a decent European style hotel with small dated rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid this place"
Pub opens onto hotel reception area. Noise a huge problem plus a lot of inebriated people wandering around, some outside in generating loud noise well into the early morning hours. The breakfast area is not clean. The rooms could use a thorough cleaning. The hotel was good several years ago. I no longer recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ask for a room on the quiet side."
For a reasonable price near Union Square, we were generally happy, with two exceptions, both related to the alley below our room. We were on the second floor on the left side (side above the front desk) and there was noisy equipment outside our window 24/7. If you need quiet, this is not the place for you. We don't mind city noises, so this was OK. […] Also, the bathroom window did not close properly, so there was a cold draft in the shower. I would recommend asking for a shuttle from the airport. We usually use public transport when taking city trips. In many cities, shuttles are expensive and the Metro is cheap, but in SF, BART is more expensive and shuttles are cheaper. It's not worth rolling your luggage several blocks up a steep & crowded sidewalk to save only $5. The hotel was very clean. The staff friendly and helpful. They say the free wifi is only available on the first floor, but we used it fine in our second-floor room. The pub is a nice place to relax & socialize. Not quite as friendly & social as a B&B, but close, with a good selection of draft beers and free hot dogs in the evening, so if you want to skip the big SF dinner one night, the pub is a good place to hang out. We'll probably stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
