Nice afternoon tea, but wifi sucks

The hotel offers afternoon tea, together with wine, free! But the wifi signal is really bad! See full review

Close to downtown san fran

Was very clean which is the most important thing. Was told I was going to have two queen beds and they were just full beds. Had a gluten free friend and wasnt much to eat for her at breakfast so had to go out most of the time. No lobby bathrooms to use. Overall the price was good and room clean. I would recommend this hotel to others.

A true find in SF

My sister-in-law and I went to SF to celebrate her 80th birthday. We were pleased to find a reasonable priced hotel in the Union Sq. area. We were overjoyed when we got there and found it to be more than we had hoped for. The room was spacious and spotless. We had two queens, a full kitchen, and a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, double sinks and even a bidet! The evening wine with cheese and crackers was a nice touch and the breakfast of fresh fruit, Danish and coffee was more than sufficent. Can't wait for another reason to go back.

first san fran trip

This was our first stay in san francisco and the location is perfect. Can walk literally to all the spots: china town, embarcadero center, fishermans wharf, great places to eat dinner up in hyde and right around the corner at this amazing thai restaurant called osha as well as fabulous chill bar called rye, jazz clubs nearby, sunset districts possible to walk to as well as presisio park if wish to 3 mjkes or quick taxi ride there. Only gave 4 for amenities because some outlets didn't work and alright pillow to sleep on. Only downfall was room service does not come in consistent times. Once tried to come in at 8 am, people are still sleeping! But I'm sure if do not disturb sign was up then would have been fine.

Great Older Hotel

This wonderful hotel is just a few blocks from Union Square and an easy walk. Also a perfect location to access a variety of public transportion options. Our room with a small kitchenette, made the food store across the street especially useful and area restaurants offered a variety of options. Our room was clean, beds comfortable, and helpful staff all add up to a place to stay again. A bit of street noise but not out of the ordinary since San Francisco is a busy place. Complimentary breakfast included plenty of fresh fruit and danishes, etc. along with and hot coffee (decaf and regular) and choice of teas was good every morning. Wine and cheese in the afternoon also a nice touch.

Nice Choice

The Beresford Arms is a bit of a walk from Union Square but it's worth it and there are excellent bus connections. Obviously an older hotel that has been redone, it's clean and bright and even a little classy. Extras included a (very basic) breakfast and a wine and cheese table every night. Friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and our bathtubs had a Jacuzzi feature. Only drawback: old windows don't seal out typical city noise, and there was no sign of air conditioning (we were there in November), but window fans were in the closets. All in all, a good choice for visiting "The City by the Bay."

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The 3-day Muni pass is a great deal- unlimited travel on all forms of city transport- including cable cars- for $20.
