      The reception staff were very helpful.It was a good idea to offer free tea and coffee in the mornings and the $5 breakfast box was good value. Free internet was a very good service to those of us who do not want the extra weight of a laptop.

      Only the street people nearby who partly downgrade the location.

      It was of excellent value for the room price.

    • Group of friends

      The lobby looked nice.

      Check in was extremely slow. The room bedding and chairs were stained and old looking. We arrived at night and the neighborhood was not good. Do not enter through the front door. Go through the parking lot entrance for safety.

      7.0

      Inexpensive, some staff were extremely helpful, room was nice, close to things

      sirens, large homeless population that was outside the hotel, near bad area of town, some staff were rudeor not very informative, lots of confusion on info between Booked.net and hotel front desk workers (some had no clue what was going on with that-if credit card was already charged, how many people were staying, room type booked, etc..)

    • Single
      8.2

      The atmosphere is one of a kind!

      The downstairs and public bathrooms were a bit old and dirty, which takes away from the amazing appeal of the rest of the hotel

      I thought it was a great value, comfortable beds and a great shower.

      The hotel is convenietnly located in the Union Square district - only acouple of blocks away from the BART station and from the cable car.

      The room provided shades but not courtains to protect from

      Boutique hotel with modern touches. Nice lobby and rooms for the type of hotel.

      The entrance on Mason Street has uncomfortable feeling with peddlers and street people who were loud and in your face. Use parking lot entrance.

    • Group of friends

      Room was clean and comfortable. Room was average size for San Francisco standards. Close to Bart/ Muni Metro Station.

      Internet: Free internet was a real joke. I could only make it work to load one page. Then I had to disconnect and connect again to be able to load again just one page. Useless. I even tried to use the "enhanced" for pay option and it would not work either. Tried to use internet in mezzanine above lobby and it was really slow. Location: While the location was convenient, the hotel was surrounded by the most aggressive and scary bums I have ever seen. I am big and used to big cities and homeless but the ones just out of this hotel were too much. House keeping: Extremely loud while we had the "Do not disturb" sign on the door. It seemed they were doing in it purpose to wake us up and get done with their job.

      Very pricey, very bad housekeeping, too many homeless arround the hotel

    • Older travelers

      Location on Market St next to transportation was great. room was clean, and cleaning staff were the best.

      Too many street people on Mason, especially on Turk. Had to run a gauntlet of beggars some of whom were in our face every time we went up Mason. Learned to walk around Mason. A pain. After booking a King room, were given a small queen room. Had to ask for King, and point to print out of reservation. You also need cable TV. The TV available was too limited. You sure have a lot of add on taxes and fees that are not clear. My bill for four days went from projected $600 to $860. That $15 a day for parking became $30 a day. And so on.

      Fairly cheap, near to the Soho businesses I wanted to go to

      Sleazy part of town with many bums on the sidewalk in the evening, guy at the front desk not especially friendly or welcoming

      Was in a good location, nice clean rooms.... :-)

      No breakfast or microwave facility!

      The atmosphere, decore, location and price all made this hotel an excellent value.

      The staff was very nice, however, they need a lot more training on security and customer services.

    • Single

      Creative use of space in room, bathroom was very clean. It was a good value for the price of the room.

      My view was terrible. I was on the 2nd floor and my view was of the air conditioning system. I was in sf for a single night for a party, so this was not an issue for me but if I was visiting sf as a tourist, this would be a major turn off.
