Great Place!

The front desk staff was great! I was given the choice of an inside or street room and mentioned I heard the street rooms were noisy... they ended up not being able to put us in the inside room so upgraded us to basically a suite. The room was great, quiet and comfortable!

Incredible hospitality!

Perfect location. Only a couple blocks from the Union Square hop-on, hop-off pickup spot, in the midst of incredible shopping, Union Square, amazing restaurants, clubs and the downtown San Francisco scene. The staff were incredibly friendly and hospitable.

We loved it !

We booked a queen room via internet cause it was a good deal. When we arrived at the hotel, a really nice lady who checked us in upgraded our room to a king room without additional cost. We loved the room. But after 20 minutes in the room, we realized there was a loud noise, sounded like an a/c or a fan, came from the roof or somewhere (we didn't know what it was). So we called the front desk, and they immediately moved us into a suite room! wonderful! The staffs were very friendly, the room was super clean, we loved the big flat screen tv, and the location was perfect, you can't get any better than this, close to union square, mall, shops, restaurants, and all public transportation (we've been to SF before and from our experience we decided not to drive this time and it was so much better that we didn't have to drive or to park). You can take bus, train, cable car, or street car that goes to all sightseeing places. Bottom line, our trip this time was perfect and we love Hotel Abri, we definitely will come back.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy a city pass. Included 6 attractions plus unlimited trips on muni and cable cars got 7 days. Definetly a great value. No need to rent a car. Everything within walking distance and close to transportation. Rented a car for 2 days to go to San Jose and Muir woods. Both are accessible via public transport but was easier with a car.

Very, very good value.

Centrally located, and a well trained and interested staff. I would definitely stay there again. Walked to Fisherman's Wharf from there, and to Ferry Building. Clean room and nice people.

San Fran done right

Perfect location for those who like to shop and sight see. Location is close to various forms of transit which makes getting around a breeze. The hotel is an oasis in a very busy part of the city and is quiet inside the rooms at night. Staff were always helpful and pleasant.

Well Done

Was a great location near some affordable food. Since I sell mattresses for a living I had done my research to make sure my hotel didn't have any bed bug reports. I still checked the mattress and all but it was clear. Some things were a little odd, like some things were a little dusty in the room/a shower cap was on the fire alarm, but all in all it was a good hotel and we would stay again. FYI for the business center, 15 min is free for being on the internet and then they charge you after that. But to check in for your airline is free.
