Bay to Breakers Weekend Stay
This hotel is in a great location across from the Grant Street Gate, the entrance into Chinatown. Safe area of San Francisco and very close to some very good restaurants. Ancient building with the slowest small elevator on earth but it is cute and well taken care of. My rom was very small, old school, very clean but absolutely nothing fancy. Not a good place for a romantic weekend kind of visit.

I have stayed at this property a few times over the years and I just had a bad experience that will keep me from returning. First, they could not find our reservations and we waited for about 45 minutes until we were set up. Then, the room was semi-clean and it smelled weird... like urine and feet. I also saw roaches in the bathroom. The breakfast was minimal..... and by the time I went downstairs it was being taken up - along with a snappy rude hostess questioning "what do you want...". I called down and asked for a manager and haven't heard a PEEP yet. Poor customer service and deterioration of property standards.

It really is Arty
The name of the hotel say it all. This is an ART hotel the walls are all painted with designs. There is original art on the walls, there are murals everywhere. The hallways are extremely narrow and the elevator has both a gate and a door which don’t stay open when you are bringing bib bag in or out. The rooms are very small. Breakfast is basic continental. Their desk staff is pleasant. The neighborhood is close to union square, china town and the financial district.

Even better than expected
My wife and I were very impressed; though we only stayed for one night during a quick layover, the room was very comfortable, the location is second to none (about 1,000 amazing things in walking distance), the staff was friendly and super helpful, and despite what we had been lead to believe based on some information we'd gotten we had our own private bathroom! Would 1000% stay here again and DEFINITELY recommend to others

Funky rooms. Staff needs some training
Funky room! Loved it. The local acadamy of art has probably something to do with it. The first desk clerk wasn't too helpful. Asked for an additional bed and it took a pleading with the next guy at the front desk to get it done.
