Minna Hotel, San Francisco
Excellent4.0 / 5
Convenient for shows at the Bill Graham Auditorium
I went with my boyfriend and we thought the room was really cozy and comfortable. The hotel is offered cheap, so we weren't expecting much, but it was a lot nicer than we had originally thought! There are no private bathrooms, and we didn't know that. We wished we would have brought shower shoes.

Urban Charmer
This is a perfect European model hotel. It's cozy, charming and historic. The room was clean, comfortable, and included a refrigerator and microwave. The shared bathrooms and showers were convenient and clean. This is not a cookie-cutter, corporate property. At the front desk, Fernando really shines. This is a downtown urban area. But, just a few blocks away you will find Union Square, Westfield Shopping Center, the Yerba Buena Arts Center, etc. I used Uber Pool and taxis for quick, safe and inexpensive transport in the area.

Do Your Homework
This hotel was not as I had expected. Of all the hotels I've stayed at in my life, this was my least favorite. The rooms smell old, and upon checking in our windows were left open so we were treated to a room full of flies. There are no garbage cans available in the rooms. There are an incredible amount of loud, rude, homeless people that can be heard from the top floor with the windows closed. There are also numerous drug deals and fights that happen on the Main Street adjacent to the hotel. There is no AC available in the hotel, so even in 60 degree whether, the room was hot and humid. The breakfast isn't worth stopping by for, either. The upside of this hotel is the friendly staff, the proximity to a great mall (Westfield SF Centre), and the safety of the hotel. To even walk to the front desk, you must be buzzed in or have a key. To even get to the elevator, you must have a keycard. And you must have a key card to get into the room as well. Though the neighborhood was shady at best, I never once questioned the safety of our things. The hotel is also apparently upgrading its facilities.

Filthy and dirty
This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The floor felt dirty, the bathrooms are filthy, and it feels like the hotel have never cleaned any of the rooms or bathrooms. The bathrooms are shared and doesn't seem to have anyone clean it daily. There was no room service my entire stay there. We had to use the same towels for 3 days. I would rather pay more money for a much better place. Do not let the pictures fool you on the site!!

It was by far the worse hotel i ever stayed at. No bathroom or shower in my room (sounds crazy huh). A lot of homeless people surround the hotel; we walked out front of the hotel and there was a woman literally defacating out front. Terrible experience, DO NOT STAY THERE!
