Great hotel. The zone is very seedy during day and night, but the hotel might be worth ignoring that. Would definitely come back next time I'm in San Francisco.

Great service!
The hotel was cool. Old and redecorated, no AC and the neighborhood can be a little noisy a6 night. But hey, you're visiting San Fran! Deal with it! The staff was great!

Kind Staff!
Huge thank-you to the kind staff who went above and beyond making our stay pleasant-every person was kind and friendly! Mollie responded promptly when I told her that I was having donuts delivered to the hotel for my husband's birthday, and she made sure they were placed in our room when we checked in. The hotel itself is older with tiny hall ways. You can definitely near guests next door or noise from outside. But for the price, it met my expectations. We walked to Union Square and Chinatown and it was a nice perk that Mr Holmes Bakehouse was right around the corner (a must-visit SF bakery!)
