Convenient and Clean

The room was a good size, within walking distance to lots of places, nice water pressure for the shower. heater doesn't work, and the maid ignored the "Please Do Not Disturb" sign.

Great Old San Francisco Hotel

As a former San Franciscan, I discovered the Beresford about 15 years ago and always stay there when I am in town. Perfect downtown location, clean rooms with a San Francisco feel. Nice staff. Quiet. And the price is unbeatable.

Nice for city visit

descent hotel with perfect location. It is close to the downtown, China Town and most of the attractiona like Wharf, Golden Gate or park are in close distance. The rooms are small and descent condition. Wifi only available on the first floor, no cabl econnection in the rooms. Breakfast is minimal, some bakery stuff, but it is nice. The value for the price is excellent, it is a cheap hotel with descent service and perfect location. Perfect for city visit for couple of days.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

To rent a bicycle in SF is an excellent idea. Visit the Golden Gate recreational Area, ride along the Wharf, ride in the city is perfect time to spend time. There are nice bike rentals in the city everywhere with nice predefined routes. Mybe it is not cheap, but for sure worth for the money.

Good value in great location

The hotel was pretty good - much better than I expected considering how much I payed for a room in a very central location. I've stayed at hotels in what I would say is the same category as this one and I was pretty impressed by how nice this one was. The room was surprisingly big, the bathroom a little crammed but fairly new and everything was clean. The breakfast was very limited but it's free, so no reason to complain. It was great that you can just quickly grab a bite, or sip on some coffee before heading out and maybe getting some better breakfast somewhere else (if you are a breakfast person). I would recommend this place if you are looking for an affordable but nice place to stay.

Three Cs! Comfortable, Clean and Centrally located

This was a great value for staying in San Francisco. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel was centrally located near Union Square and tons of restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing, entertainment venues within walking distance. The hotel had a happy hour that was noisy for my friends whose rooms were directly above it, but I was on the 5th floor and did not have a problem. The bar had a steady stream of patrons making it a fun place to hang out for a night-cap. Wireless is only available in the lobby & business center area, which can be problematic for finding a place to sit or finding outlets for your laptop or mobile device. With the price was competitive with other nearby hotels. I will be a returning guest

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Plenty of intimate restaurants within a couple of minutes walking, but really loved the adorable European style Italian restaurant right on the corner of Mason and Sutter, "Cesarios" with great food and great service and VERY REASONABLE prices, with delivery available.

great location

it's in a great location in downtown where close to all shopping areas and restaurants. the room space is a little bit too small that could only fit one person's luggage. no wi-fi service except 1st fl which is very disappointing. but i don't mind coming back again since the price is quite reasonable in such a convenient location.

Charming Look, Outdated Feel

Room was quite small and facilities clearly outdated (carpeting, plumbing, etc). No coffee make in room - not even an alarm clock! But on the bright side, everything was clean and there was a small refrigerator with an honor policy - you tell the front desk what you consumed. Price, for what you get, is very good. Staff was helpful. Overall, a small hotel with limited services and amenities, but a good value, especially considering its proximity to the Union Square neighborhood or San Francisco.

When visiting San Francisco, don't miss the DeYoung Art Museum in Golden Gate Park. EXCELLENT museum and beautiful architecture!

Would book again!

Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. The room was small (but they all seem to be in that area). The hotel is very nice and clean. A pub next door for a quick bite or drink at nite. WiFi was non existent but it really didn't matter...Your in San Francisco, get out and do something.

Perfect Location

Have stayed at the Beresford five times over the last six years and have always had a good experience. Much better than staying at one of the larger more expensive hotels in the Union Square area.
