The Andrews Hotel is a charming, European-style hotel centrally located in San Francisco's renowned theater and shopping districts. Our small size -- just 48 guestrooms -- allows our friendly and courteous front desk staff to give you individual attention. Citysearch Voted the Andrews hotel 'Best hotel staff' 2006.

The building at 624 Post Street was completed in 1905 just before the great earthquake on April 18, 1906. Because it was built as a Class a structure, completely supported by a steel frame, it suffered little damage. However, the fire that engulfed the city after the quake did some damage to the lobby and restaurant.

After being repaired the following November for $38,000, the building assumed its planned role as the Sultan Turkish Baths, a gentlemen's bath and relaxation establishment. The large electric sign on the roof announced its arrival on Post Street. As a full service business, the Sultan Baths featured a restaurant on the ground floor. The next level housed a salt-water plunge, tiled hot room, and a rubbing room. On the third floor one could find a barber, chiropodist, and a bar and lounge. The fourth and fifth floors featured small sleeping rooms and a steam room. Finally, on floors six and seven, one could rent one of several small apartments, each containing a bedroom and a parlor. Rumor has it that, at one time, the establishment had a rather unsavory reputation.

Valet parking is $34 + 15.5% tax for regular and $46 + 15.5% tax for oversized vehicle. Please be advised that valet parking fees will be higher on New Year Eve ( fees to be announced in December). Parking fees are subject to change without notice.

Just downtown location

If you need to be in touch in downtown, it's your choice. But keep in mind that hotel itself is old, rooms and bathrooms did not get renewal.

A crime just waiting to happen!

I did not stay...the neighborhood scared me away, a charge for parking...that was in the fine print..my mistake...try to get a refund....that was not going to happen.... the safety of my car was the main problem..the hotel is in the worst part of the city...bums and garbage everywhere...could not get refund because I did not cancel 40 hrs before... well I flew in and picked up rental car, then headed to hotel....Comfort Inn is couple miles away and has secure parking... Im afraid I will not be using Cheaptickets any more either....there are to many other booking agencies that protect the customer from stuff like this.

Quaint, homey, slightly funky

Two blocks off Union Square, this old (pre-earthquake) hotel retains the charm of an earlier era. A nice feature is the continental breakfast put out on each floor: juice, rolls, butter, jam, fruit, coffee, tea; put on tray and take to your room. There is wireless internet, but it broke down for over a day while I was there. There is no coffee maker in the room; there is coffee in the lobby at all times, but it is stale and hardly warm. The rooms are definitely on the small side. But great value and location. I've stayed there eight or ten times.

Good basic accommodations

This is not a luxury hotel or even a standard modern chain. The rooms are dated, though there have been attempts to update the decor. I spent 4 nights attending a conference in San Francisco. The room was clean, and since it was not on the street, it was very quiet. The bathroom was very tight. The toilet and tub/shower were too close together and the towels practically hung in your face as you used the toilet. I would not recommend the room for 2 people unless you were dedicated to saving money. But for one person, it was fine. The staff at the front desk was very helpful. The continental breakfast buffet was conveniently located on each floor.

Ok

It was an older place. The receptionist didn't think we had reservations at first. Took him 20 minutes to find our reservation for 2 rooms. Overall not too bad though.
