"Excellent Union Square location"
Everything was great except the room, bathroom and shower were too small. Didn't like having to pay $30.00 a night for non valet parking in an unsecured lot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel good location"
Friendly & Helpful staff, hallway carpets need to be replaced, Room was clean but had a small sink in the bathroom. Nice high ceilings in room. Hotel is old but price & location was good 2-blocks from union square.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean and adequate"
We enjoyed our time at the Andrews. The staff was very pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and amenities."
I really liked the Andrews. The location is perfect (close to transportation, restaurants, walkable, etc.) The hotel has lots of charm and character, and they throw in lots of amenities (continental breakfast, a glass of wine each afternoon, fresh fruit always available, free wifi, etc.). The only negative is that because the rooms are so old fashioned, […] the only air circulation is an overhead fan and one window. It wasn't too bad, but it was a bit stuffy. For the price, I thought it was great and would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location. Great staff."
Lovely old hotel and very helpful staff (except the night man) Only problem is we took a small room and there were two of us. Would recommend either two beds or a larger room if a couple. We could barely function in our roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheaper but smaller"
I visit SF at least 2-3 times a year and usually stay near Powell station. I chose Andrews Hotel because it was on sale at $120, a great price for this area. It is a bit far from Powell station, about 3-4 blocks from Union Square and about 7-8 blocks of hilly walk to MUNI and BART station. That is not so bad as long as you don't pick a road that is […] way too hilly. There are some restaurants, liquer stores, and a Walgreen nearby. For location, it is not so bad. As for hotel itself, the lobby is small but cozy. There is one historic elevator and a very narrow stair. Eat floor has about 5-7 rooms. My room has a full bed and a desk, a very small closet and a small bathroom with only shower. It is a teeny tiiiny room with not much space to spare. There is a 26 inch LCD with DVD player on the table, a regular chair and a single sofa chair, and that's about it for the entire room. Small and, small. No central AC so it can get warm in the room. No fridge either. As for service, the receptionists are pretty nice. I was informed of evening wine reception and morning breakfast, both of which i did not take advantage. It is not a bad place to stay, but it is, again, small. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but small historical hotel room"
The service at this hotel is very good. There are always coffee/tea and fruit available in the lobby. The continental breakfast is above average. There is also free wine every evening although I did not take that advantage. The room is rather small though, particularly the bath room. If you are over 200 pounds, you may have trouble to use the toilet […] as you'll need to bend your legs under the sink. There is also a crack in the sink. Nevertheless, these do not bother me that much. The hotel is within blocks from the Union Square and Powell Cable Car turn table. In short, this is a good value.

"Loved this place!"
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we loved it! The hotel was charming - in size and in decoration. The elevator is of the older variation with the inside gate, but we liked it for the neat experience. The room was small but perfect for just two people. The weather was nice while we were in San Francisco, so the lack of air conditioning […] did not bother us. We kept the window open the whole time and it was fine. The best part about this hotel: the continental breakfast! The pastries were SO DELICIOUS! I highly recommend the apple turnovers with orange juice to drink. I loved that the breakfast was served on each floor, so we didn't have to go down to the main lobby to get it. Our room was clean. We really liked the price; we expected it to be much higher since we were staying in the city. My husband and I would both recommend this hotel to others! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old time San Francisco"
If you want a taste of old San Francisco, here it is! It's quiante! The elevator is real old time! The stairs are scarie! The bed was comfortable, but the ceiling fan chain hasn't been cleaned in years! You can't sit on the toilet without sitting sideways, because of the sink. But the people were nice. Also, you must pay alot For parking per day, ouch! […] I guess I'm just a poor Michigan girl & not used to this big city anymore. I was here in the 70's. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok, it's a two star not a five star, but it was warm and wonderful and a fraction of the price. Kind of like a charming old European hotel you would have stayed in when you were younger. Highly recommended whether you're trying to save on five stars or not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Staff 's manners and helpfulness made up for the smallness of the rooms and the parking fees.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint but small"
Basically it was right in the middle of lots of things to walk to, Union Square and the cable car stop etc...A little close to the Tenderloin district where we wondered accidentally one night. The room was very small and there was only a 13 in. TV with very limited stations. It was clean and the personnel were friendly. Luckily we didn't spend much […] time in the room.

"One Night Stand"
Hotel in very good location for the price of the rooms. Rooms very small with no refrigerator. No parking for guests, Must use on street parking lots. I would use this hotel if my stay is only for a night or two.Genuine Expedia guest review
"short stop in SF"
Staff was very friendly. I loved my room on the 7th floor and the elevator was old and quaint. The stairs were wonderfully steep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small cozy hotel with a "European touch""
Small cozy hotel with a "European touch". Has a nice adjacent restaurant/bar. Room and bathroom very small, mine was with a shower only, but very neat. Centralized and quite. Excellent service.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very helpful and the hotel served the purpose for the short business trip. It is in close proximity to shopping, eating and entertainment. However, the walls were so thin that the noises from doors slamming, pigeons outside my window and persons moving around disturbed my rest at night. But, the staff tried their best to ensure that my […] trip was enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel needs a major update. They are friendly but that can't compensate for all the issues.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Location, Great Restaurant"
Quaint hotel, remodelled several years ago. Needs new carpet in the corridors, but other than that clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful. The restaurant is very nice, excellent service and delicious food. The location is great, just a block off union Square. We like to walk. The Wharf was only about 45 minutes away and it was an opportunity […] to really see things along the way. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy, original near shopping & financial district"
Convenient, great value hotel with San Francisco style; reminded me of a hotel I stayed at in Paris - same elevator! Good restaurant, Fino, inside. Many quality restaurants nearby. Nice staff. Loved the classical music playing very early on my departure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"friendly service, older hotel, good deal"
Staff were very friendly. Free wireless internet, free continental breakfast (good coffee and pastry), and complimentary glass of wine in the evening at great Italian restaurant downstairs. It's an older building with fading carpets, narrow staircase, smallish room and very cramped bathroom, but it's clean. Overall, a great deal within a few blocks […] of Union Square.

Jody was a great in helping me to efficiently plan the visit to many SF sights which were part of my sixth grade classroom scavenger hunt that my students researched. It's staff like Jody that make San Francisco and the Andrews a wonderful place to stay. I enjoyed the personal feeling at the Andrews hotel. I do wish that the hotel owners would update […] the decor of some of the smaller rooms, including bedspreads and small television. Make sure to ask for a description of the bathroom--I had one with a small sink and a shower only. I had been looking forward to a bath in one of those deep boutique hotel tubs...oh well.

"Smaller is better"
This is not a big fancy hotel, but you don't need all the over priced frills staying in San Francisco. We found the Andrews Hotel the perfect place. It's small and very quant. It has everything you need. A comfortable room with basic amenities and free wi-fi. Not a big screen TV, but who cares. You're not in San Fran to watch television. A very lovely […] continental breakfast every morning. A free glass of wine at the attached Fino restaurant every night! (We had a wonderful dinner our last night in California.) The staff is very friendly, attentive and professional. Centrally located enough to all transportation. (near the cable cars, near to Market St which has access to the streetcars and buses) Need a gym or steam room? Forget it. Need a clean room with the basic necessities which is priced fairly? Then take a pass on the Marriott and book a room. Our only gripe was the loud parking lot behind the hotel and occasional truck plodding through late at night. Try to get a room in the front near Post St. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old-fashioned hotel with great charm"
Hotel is old-fashioned and charming. Very romantic feel. Great location. Rooms are small and have not been renovated in a long time, but neat and clean. No issues with noise on the top floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small rooms, but convenient and friendly"
My room was tiny but had everything I needed. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast was sufficient (and I actually liked having to take a tray back to my room to eat it). If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay in a convenient location and you're wiling to put up with a small room in an older building, this place will do just fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly courteaous staff and was a complete joy to stay there. Enjoyed the breakfasts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My mother was very pleased with this hotel. It's in a very convenient location, and not as loud as other nearby blocks. It's a nice independent hotel that is well-kept. The antique elevator is cool. I enjoyed the coffee, tea and ice water always present in the lobby. The restaurant, Fino, seems popular. The front desk people were very nice to my mother. […] She said she would stay here again, which is the ultimate compliment. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for a family or just adults."
we had 3 adults,a 9-year old and a 14 year old with us. the staff was extraordinairily kind to the kids and would even tease them gently.the kids loved it, and the little one begged to get us hot chocolatefrom the lobby all the time. they expecially loved the "cage" elevator. Though there were still things to be updated, the important things were done: […] great showers. good heat, wonderful room service from the restaurant next door, clean, comfortable beds perfect Jr. Suite for one adult and two children, charm. the staff was very helpful with everything: directions, recommendations, printing out boarding passes, etc. the continental breakfast was very good, expecially the fruit, and it's convenience helped our planning each day. perfect location. we will stay there again.

"Cute, nice staff, good union square location"
Nice quaint hotel in a good location very close to union square. Staff was excellent. Jodi was especially helpful and so pleasant. She helped me find many locations in the area and gave me perfect walking/mass transit directions. The restaurant, Vino, was packed every night and the elevator was really cute!Genuine Expedia guest review
This was my second stay, though my first was better. I had a service problem in the restaurant/bar which offers free wine for hotel guests. (My boyfriend and I were asked to take our glass of wine in the hotel lobby, even though the restaurant/bar wasn't busy, and we weren't asked if we'd be paying for another glass of wine.) House-keeping was extra […] noisy on one morning. (Request a room stay away from the stairs/elevator.) The continental breakfast ran out of pastries on one morning. Overall, I love this place because of its history and general "feel," but my poor experience in the restaurant/bar soured everything else a bit for me. Waiting to see if the hotel will apologize for the service issue to see if I ever stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall, good experience."
It can be a bit loud at times but then again, we were in the middle of the city so it's expected. The rooms were kept clean but the bedding seemed a bit old and the pillows were covered in plastic which made it a bit uncomfortable. Otherwise the staff was friendly, helpful and informational. Very accommodating and resourceful. I loved the older Victorian […] feel of the hotel. I will return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"old, noisy hotel"
This is an old, noisy place. Maybe this is a supply demand issue, but I felt that I got very little for my money. The room is small, feels like an old bed and breakfast and smells wierd. But the location is pretty good, the breakfast was ok, and there is intermittent free wireless.Genuine Expedia guest review
"works for short stay but that's about it."
No natural light, windows not overlooking anything, very dark room. front desk man didn't make me feel welcome at all. room was very small, outdated decor but the location was OKGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place with a old cachet well located"
Great place well located! The building seems to be a bit old and has a certain cachet. The room was comfortable albeit a bit small. The bathroom was making a continuing noise during the night but nothing too annoying. The included breakfast is rudimentary but enjoyable. Would recommend for people not looking for to much luxury. I enjoyed a lot my 7 […] days stay there with my wife. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a nice hotel - pleasant rooms, decent continental breakfast, etc. However, anyone who is larger than I am (6'1", 190 pounds) should inquire about the size of the bathrooms of the rooms that he or she is considering. The one in my room was tiny. If I had been any larger, I would have had a lot of trouble using the toilet and shower. As it was, […] I had to squeeze in around the sink to use the toilet and hunker down in the shower to rinse my hair. However, even knowing this, I would go back to the Andrews because everything else about it was so good, and I'm not planning to grow or gain weight. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More than worth the price"
Spent the weekend for the Nike Womens' Marathon. Great location. Right on the start line. Quaint, sweet, older hotel, with a real San Francisco feel. Small cozy room. Friendly staff. One block from Union Square, and anything you could need or want.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Walking distance to many sights!"
We had a great time staying at this hotel. It is quaint eurapean style with friendly staff. The resturant Fino located on the first level looked amazing we only enjoyed the complimentary wine because the reservation book was full! We were able to walk easily to union square and chinatown. It was a further walk to the giants stadium, ferry building and […] fishermans wharf. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
FABULOUS SERVICE! Safe location, close to Union Square. Quaint, adorable hotel. Would stay there again and highly recommend to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Historic and romantic"
The hotel is a couple of blocks from Union Square and we were able to walk to all of the public transportation / tour bus starting points from there. Jody the front desk clerk was VERY friendly and helpful! We got a glass of wine in the hotel restaurant each evening (limited window - only if you happen to be there during that hour and a half) and the […] breakfast each morning was amazing - fresh fruit (choice of bananas, apples and oranges), gorgeous assorted pastries with butter and jam, orange juice and coffee. The nice thing is that we could take breakfast back to our room and eat there - it is served on each floor. The only problems were the size of the bathroom (in our particular room, your knees are under the sink when you sit on the commode) and the wireless didn't reach our room - we had to stand in the hall with the tablet to make tour reservations, etc. Good value, served our purpose as a landing spot each evening after sightseeing, would stay there again. Two thumbs up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super funky cool SF hotel"
What it lacks in modern amenities and spaciousness, the Andrews hotel more than makes up for in charm and grace. Staff was very pleasant. Love the little touches: great pastries and coffee on each floor, free wine in the nice Italian restaurant downstairs. The elevator is original to the 1905 structure, small but works perfectly. Not to mention fantastic […] location! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great, also the Fino. Restaurant in the hotel is wonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not excatly what we expected"
This is a nice quaint old building - I'll give it that. And with old hotels, expect small rooms. However, for the price I do expect a comfortable bed, fresh linens, and clean conditions. But everything at Andrews seems to be ancient, linens and towels included. The bathroom is tiny and original. Tub didn't drain; sink is practically on top of the toilet. […] No space or mirrors to get ready. This hotel is in serious need of renovation. But the location is good; restaurant is great. Interesting - the manager went out of her way to accommodate a group of 6 "Occupiers", breaking the 2-person/room policy to allow them to stay in 1 room with their BMX bikes. They had taken over the lobby. Thankfully she also accommodated our request to be as far away from them as possible. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple, Small & Great Location"
Located 5 blocks from the Union Square BART stop (although uphill - so beware if you are walking with luggage!), it's in a great location. Easy to get to Union Square and all the buses etc. Although location seems to be a bit sketchy, bordering what seems to be Chinatown. Room was small as expected, and old - but clean. Free breakfast was more/better […] than I expected, with muffins, pastries fruit and coffee etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
