Hotel experience was good. Tons of homeless on local streets, although they don't bother you. Hotel offers regular shuttles to tourist areas to bypass walking in the area. Staff was nice and very helpful.
The Cova Hotel in San Francisco is a great hotel, although it's not located in the best place, since it's really close to homeless shelters and they're always wondering around, which doesn't make it the safest of places. The room was totally
comfort, and the deluxe breakfast was amazing. The staff was really good as well.
The hotel itself is good. Nice and clean for this price.
But it located at a really bad neighborhood. I know there are many homeless people around civic center. It just far worse than I thought.
I think if you have car. this place is okay for
you. Otherwise, it will be better to find another places to stay.
This is an excellent value in the heart of San Francisco if you don't mind it being in the middle of the Tenderloin section of town where all the vagrants live and hangout. The strategy is to not walk up and down Ellis Street. We walked up to
O'Farrell or Geary to walk toward Union Square. The rooms were modern, the free wifi a real plus and the breakfast buffet was good for the price point of the hotel. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel if you can handle walking through the tenderloin. I walked alone at night and felt like it was ok but I think you take some risk.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Millenium is a great vegetarian restaurant. Pricey but the fixed menu with wine pairing was outstanding.
580 Geary Street.
Also, Cafe Mason on Mason is great for breakfast. Try the Huevos Rancheros
This hotel covers the basics: clean, snappy decor, and within walking distance to SF's many attractions. On the top floor you will find its large terrace and the breakfast room where you'll find cereal, made to order waffles (you make 'em
yourself!), sandwich fixins, and an assortment of breakfast beverages.
The Cova has every thing you need and nothing you don't.
