"The least you would expect ..."
This is a refurbished mediocre hotel near union square but just as expensive as a much better venue. It was clean.. Except for the room service menu with greasy fingerprints --really -- but very small room and nothing distnctive- definitely a last resort choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not so good. The hotel, beyond the lobby, is old and it really smells old. No central air conditioning, old-fashioned airconditioners in the windows. The worst thing was that do not disturb means that the hotel staff calls about cleaning the room instead...really annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel next to union square"
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The only not perfect thing was that my room was located direct to Cyril Magnin Street with a noisey surrounding during the night (I think there is a truck loading ramp next to the hotel). Everything else was fine. I would come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty hotel. The room was very comfortable and nice. Bathroom was incredible. Close to downtown and amenities. Very happy and will return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great service. Loud neighborhood"
The hotel itself is pretty nice. The staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and the location is convenient. My biggest gripe was that I couldn't sleep at all. Because it's on busy streets, I could hear everything - bums yelling overnight, the club kids leaving the bar at 2am and the cars cruising with loud music. I'd highly recommend a room that doesn't […] face the street if staying here. Otherwise, it's a nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My feedback on the Abri March 2014"
The hotel was in a great location, but there are homeless that are in front of the hotel, but they are also all over San Francisco. This hotel is a few blocks from the Tenderloin District, which is a very rough part of town. The hotel staff was very friendly, very helpful and kind. The rooms were small, and haven't completely been remodeled. This is […] an old hotel, and it has window unit AC... it can be loud, and the outside noise can be loud for those who are light sleepers.

"Cute boutique hotel"
Nice hotel near Union Square. We received an upgrade to a suite which was very nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is somewhat close to the Tenderloin, but if you ask the staff which areas are best for walking, they can help advise you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were so thrilled with our hotel selection. The location can't be beat. We didn't rent a car so arrived by train from the airport and it was an easy two block walk with our luggage. Trolley picks up in same place and easy walk to Market to catch the F line. Staff was wonderful. Luis at the front desk seemed like an old friend every time we returned. […] Yes, the room was small, but we knew that going in. We weren't in the room other than to sleep and the beds are very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if I ever get a chance to return to SF. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, convenient location"
Room was nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. Very close to Market street and all the places I wanted to be. Bike share was 2 blocks away (4th & Market), which I used and enjoyed. Good value and a pleasant stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect place for the price"
The staff were helpful, the room was perfect for my needs and it was clean and comfortable...it fulfilled all of my expectations. There is also a great restaurant and bar on the corner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel with a great balance old/new."
The room was modern and comfortable. The hotel has the historic appeal and feel. The best part was the friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in union square"
Stayed Thursday through Sunday in a 2 double bed room. Staff very welcoming. Hotel very central to everything; 1 min walk to union square/shopping, $10 cab ride to mission or marina, 2 min walk to BART or Trolley line, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend the Thai noodle house 1 block northeast of hotel; shabby appearance, but cheap, excellent […] food. As well as the sushi place across the street from hotel; pricier, but fantastic. Only complaint of hotel was the "view" from our room. We were in San Francisco for a "best friends getaway"; 2 girls in our twenties sight seeing and shopping and eating. Room size was adequate, although we didn't spend much time there. We had enough room for our 3 suitcases (we obviously overpacked) as well as the ridiculous amount of shoes and clothes and souvenirs we bought while there. There was a small closet as well as space along the beds that we utilized. The safe and the mini fridge def came in handy. As for the "view": the window was about 2x3 feet, most of which was taken up by a window air conditioning unit, so I had to stand on a bed to see out of the 6 inches of window available. Also, under the beds obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while. When we searched the room before leaving to make sure we had everything, we found 1 slipper and 2 different socks (none of which were ours) as well as about an inch of dust. Didn't bother us while there, but still kind of gross. However, everything else considered, would def stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will stay again!"
Hotel staff is very friendly, Najabat checked us in and was very kind and friendly. The hotel has been remodeled although u can still see some cracks and worn paint on the walls, but overall the hotel was an excellent pick! Very close to Union Square and public transport. If u park here it starts at 40 a night for valet. Overall would stay here ag […] ain! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"charming but distracting"
hotel room was clean, modern decor, however it rained during the night and the drops hitting the window unit AC woke me up, as well as the children running around on the floor above us early in the morning - both results of it being an older building. Staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small and niche"
One night, didn't have huge chance to review. Room and bathroom tiny, no room to move in bathroom at all.. Location is fine, staff were pleasant.. One night here is my lot..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Centrally located in SF!"
My husband and I had the opportunity to get-away and we chose SF because we love it there! It was our first stay at the ABRI Hotel and we loved everything about it. We will stay there again on our next trip to SF and we will recommend it to others for certain! We were greeted warmly at the curb and provided with assistance of our luggage, the staff […] at the check in desk were great! The housekeeping staff were quick and efficient. We needed help with the blinds in the room and a maintenance person came immediately to our aid! Great overall customer service! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Older building, but nicely renovated. The first night we had a very noisy room, but the staff was very accommodating an switched us to an inside room which was much more quiet. The rooms are very spacious. We'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"love the hotel"
Love, love, love the hotel. Very clean, comfortable, definitely would stay there again. My only complaint is parking. I don't think any of these hotels inform you that you'll be paying $30-40 a day for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to cable cars, shops, small room"
Expensive for the size of rooms. Staff was pleasant and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is classy without being stuffy. Staff always nice. Rooms small but comfortable. Bathrooms nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nicely remodeled in a modern style."
Nice older hotel that has been fully remodeled inside. Friendly staff. Clean. Smaller rooms as would be expected with an old building. My only complaint is the significant amount of noise from the street which required earplugs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Price ok (most days)"
Perfect for short stay business of pleasure. Great location. Perfect price/value at around what I paid for my first two nights (around $150) but a ripoff at $350ish on my last night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
other than location, was not satisfied-- room was tiny, bed was definitely not queen size and very unstable/very uncomfy for two. coffee tasted bad, no in-room safe means u have to carry valuables around which is not cool given that area around hotel has lots of beggars, homeless, etc. didn't really feel safe at night walking about. toilet would not […] flush properly. the man at front desk was nice (not the woman).

"Near Union Square, a value"
Chose based on reviews. Had tickets for a show the last Friday nite of the '13 Holiday weeks; Abri helped make the weekend memorable. Went too far down the block when we arrived and had to go around the block to pull right in front. Be aware that the entrance is immediately after you turn the corner off 5th on to Ellis. Joel took us in hand and got […] the car parked, bags up to the room quickly, etc. He also got us a cab later as we left for the show. Had reservations at Puccini and Pinneti, thinking it was just down the street; actually it can be reached through the Abri lobby. Having P&P so close is a real plus. Good food, excellent cocktails/wine list and efficient, friendly staff. Even a wood-fired pizza oven. Wide variety of people there at 6 pm--bar was going strong with an after work crowd, some families with children seated for dinner. A bit noisy but I'd say it was 80% full and, remember the bar. P&P was nice to have nearby when we returned after the show for a nightcap and something crunchy to eat. The room--we had a king bed room and the space was….adequate. Being a frequent business traveler, though not to SF, I rated the desk and chair very good for the purpose. Excellent wide screen HDtv. Bathroom modern, very clean. Bed very comfortable. HVAC is by a window-mounted unit. It worked quite well and didn't take up floor space. Also didn't have a warm dust smell when it put out heat. Overall, older property kept up well. Good value for our purpose. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I love Hotel Abri. I've stayed several times and have always been happy. I love the idea of a boutique hotel - and not having to run down blocks of corridors just to get to the elevator. The staff is great and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The only reason I didn't give "surrounding neighborhood" a 5 is because of the homeless in the area - but […] that's something that's common all over the city and most of them seem harmless. Will definitely stay at this hotel again, and recommend it to others! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outstanding hotel in a Great Location"
This is my new favorite hotel in San Francisco. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of them worked very hard to make you feel like you were a special guest. From check in to check out the front desk people were extremely helpful and friendly. Also the two Bellmen and the maids cleaning the rooms were great. My only negative comment was about […] the evening/night front desk people. It felt like it was an imposition for them to have to help you with anything or even acknowledge you as you walked by. Definitely a difference between the day and evening/night front desk personnel. The room was great. On check in I was asked if I wanted a smaller, quieter inner room or a larger, noisier outer room. I was very impressed that I was given a choice with an explanation. I was also allowed to check in early. Only other negative is the hot water for a shower is hit and miss. Everything about this hotel and almost all of it's staff is First Rate. I will definitely be coming back to this hotel on future visits. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
As a local to the city, I wanted to take my daughter on a quick getaway for Christmas and rise early to shop. Perfect location to shop, eat, and enjoy union square. The hotel staff was amazing! They gave me an upgrade for free! The room is San Francisco charm at it finest. The room was comfortable for more then the 2 of us. I had anticipated the street […] traffic would be loud but picked a room on the street side anyway. Have to say it wasn't that bad. The room has a great vibe, we had a great stay!! Defiantly would go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent! The hotel is beautiful, great facilities and staff. Really clean, the are all the time cleaning. The only thing is they have to change mattress. But I recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in bad neighborhood"
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel for several reasons. It was at a walking distance from work, lots of good restaurants and convenience stores around. The only problem I found is there are a lot of homeless people around and some of them pretty aggressive but overall my stay at the hotel was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older Building in Centrally Located Area"
Hotel Abri is located in an older building but is newly renovated. Rooms are pretty small but has what's needed for a stay in city center. It's centrally located near Union Square and two blocks from Powell Street BART Station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for the money"
My wife and I stayed in Hotel Abri recently and enjoyed it very much. We asked for an interior room (to avoid potential noise from the busy neighborhood outside) and it was quiet, clean, modern, and very comfortable. We slept very well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is hard to beat - near Union Square and the Powell Street BART […] station - surrounded by shopping, restaurants, and quick transportation. The Italian restaurant downstairs was good too. I will definitely consider staying there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place with a few minor flaws"
Overall, the Hotel Abri is a wonderful place to stay! The location is great, the rooms/hotel are recently renovated, and the staff is very helpful! I was there for an 8 day business trip and had a nice time, with a few minor complaints, however. There's no gym in the hotel, while almost all the other small hotels in the area offer this amenity. You […] are offered the use a local gym for $15/visit that is 3.5 blocks away, but this was not made clear when I was booking the hotel. They also offer free wireless, but the connection speed was always throttled down to 1 Mbps, which is barely enough to get an email sent. Of course, you could pay $19.99/day for "fast" wireless. So, both of these were a little frustrating for the business traveler. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful location with affordable prices!"
Luis at the front desk was so helpful and kind....treated us like family from the moment we checked in, and is the reason I am leaving any review at all. (I usually forget to leave any reviews!) The hotel itself was wonderful too. Very clean, cute, and everyone was courteous. Close to everything! We walked to Union Square, Lefty Odouls, Walgreens, lol […] you get the idea....would definitely stay here again:) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The lobby was beautiful , clean , smelt fresh felt very inviting.

"Christmas shopping stay"
Great personnel, sharp decor, easy in, easy out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel. Great location."
When we arrived, there was a fire in an upper floor of the hotel. It took several hours to actually check in. After that, it was okay. Nice enough but nothing really stellar.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very rude and bad service from the manager"
First they did not have the room that i have paid for when i got it through hotel.com. They try to put me in a small room i had to talk to a rude manager who has not customer experience. I would not recommend it if you do book it call them before hand and make sure that your reservation is there as what you had booked.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value close to everything"
Small room but small price. Only problem was it took 25 minutes to fetch my car which made me late to a meeting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"They ignore their own door signs"
Hung a DO NOT DISTURB sign ("Stay Away" in their language). Suddenly, on the 2nd evening, a hotel employee came to our room, stuck his master key in (completely ignoring the door sign!!!!) and opened the door, WHILE my girlfriend was standing there entirely undressed !!!! Thankfully, she was able to jump behind the door and scream at him. I instantly […] called to complain, but all the hotel manager said to me was "I'm sorry"... The water at the shower was barely streaming; maybe a 5th floor is a problem?! 2 power outlets at the work desk, but none is working. There are A/C units in the windows (we had a suite), but if you want to operate them (for heating...) you must give up privacy, as they can't operate while the shades are down... One of the amenities indicated on Expedia was a valet parking; they just fail to mention they charge you $40/day + tax, so 3 parking days turned $136. We're both experienced corporate travelers and in the Abri hotel case, NEVER AGAIN! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wasn't a fan. The hotel staff wasn't friendly and my room was small and uncomfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOVE this place!"
Staff is awesome and gave great tips on things to do. Easy access to restaurants, BART, cable cars and street cars! Upon recommendation we took an inside room, not street view - good call because the club across the street is a hoppin' place into the wee hours. You can take BART from the airport, which is about $8.75 (as opposed to a $60 cab fare!), […] easy walk and you are there. Do not miss Dottie's True Blue Cafe or Pinecrest diner. Be sure to take the F line on a SWEET vintage streetcar to the wharf. If it is a nice day rent a bike and go across the Golden Gate, take the ferry back. Perfect, perfect.

"Quick one night stay"
Old building with modern flare! Great location for the hustle and bustle of downtown sf. Rooms are small but not bad for a quick stay, definitely more of a couples or single type of room. Hotel staff was courteous and helpful and valet parking (although pricey) was a nice asset to use. All in all we will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a great location, close to everything & cable cars for transportation. Staff was great at recommending restaurants, venues & modes of transportation. All employees that we encountered were friendly & always willing to converse with all guests! Rooms are small as expected in the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For how similar the pricing this hotel is to other hotels in the Union Square (a difference of only $70-$100 for two nights), the room was surprisingly small, the hotel in general is only 5 floors. The room has a bedroom and small small SMALL bathroom. The water pressure was really upsetting, the shower-head went up to my chin, my boyfriend (who is […] 6'5'') could not fit at all.

"Abri. In San Francisco"
Cute hotel great location the room was small and comfortable. Well priced. No frills but I did not need any frills.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was just okay. I was expecting more for the what I paid. The room was tiny for two people and the bathroom had very little shelf space. It probably would have been fine for one person, but pretty cramped for two. I have eaten at the adjacent restaurant before and had a great experience. This time I went to the restaurant twice during my […] stay and was disappointed both times. The food wasn't nearly as good as it had been in the past. The servers and staff were very good, though. Overall the hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. When I checked in the staff person did try to find a larger room for us, but said the larger rooms were noisier. I've stayed at other hotels in the area for the same price and was offered more amenities and nicer rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, definitely will recommend."
The hotel staff is very helpful. I appriciate to offer a very quiet room in such a busy distict. It is good for family stay with child. Denfiniety, we will come back next time when traveling in San Francisco.Genuine Expedia guest review
