A perfect Valentine

The room and location were great. The only problem we had was a homeless man screaming until four in the morning. You could hear him through the windows. It made it a little difficult to get some rest. Other than that the room is perfect for a quick weekend in the city.

Good Location

Just like most older, urban hotels the rooms were small and they used true Window Units for AC. Nice update though and central location. Will return for sure. The $50 for Valet is a bit much, but city can be expensive.

Pleasant stay.

I stayed here for two nights with my wife and her parents. The standard room is kind of small, so we had to upgrade to suit. It is SF after all. All staff members were very helpful. It is right by the Cable car station. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. If the price is right, it can be a great choice.

Great SF choice

The only issue with the hotel was the parking and the night life across the street. We arrived at 2AM and the street was flooded with drunk people leaving the club across the hotel. Police cars and people shouting at them. Wasn't an issue once we got at the room, but was hard to figure out the parking. So we decided to go with the valley service offered by the hotel. Which turned out to be using the hotel next door and charging more than the garage. So next trip to SF - would love to stay in the same hotel - it is great! But will park myself to save few bucks.

Good Hotel

With all the hotel options, it's a tough choice in San Fransisco, but we were happy with Hotel Abri. Provided an overall feeling that the employees cared, that it was clean, and was safe. Vibe was relaxed. Lots of hussle and bussle outside given the location....so something to consider depending on what you are looking for. This hotel fulfilled my expectations and I will keep it higher than many others on my list for a next time visit.

Great location, upscale feel

In shopping district, Gap, Forever21, Old Navy, Walgreens, Starbucks, Westfield mall (Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, etc) all short walks. Next door was a Subway and a Cold Stone. Hotel was small inside, but beautiful. Size was reminiscent of an older building but totally renovated, a plus on both counts. Be careful when you open that VOSS water in the bathroom. Thought it was free but once removed the $4.00 price tag became visible. :) Overall a good experience.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Great location, one block from streetcar, cablecar, metro (subway), and BART! Cable Car that goes up the hill gets crowded fast and is pricey. But Street Cars that travel to the Piers about three times cheaper ($2.00 at time of writing) and less crowded. Metro also goes to piers and less crowded than street cars.

Family vacation

The Hotel Abri is in a great location for you to walk to many places. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's fairly easy to get around once you have your bearings. Parking is expensive....almost everything in San Francisco is expensive -- but we live in the Midwest. Lots to do for a family vacation, we loved our time there. Just be aware that things cost 2-3 times as much depending on where you live. Good walking shoes are a must and by far our favorite place to visit was the Muir Woods National Park.....it was spectacular!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Macy's and other big name stores are within walking distance of the hotel. I highly recommend purchasing the Hop On/Hop Off bus tickets to get you around SF. Much easier than trying to drive and find parking.

Last minute getaway

Perfect location, updated room, comfy bed & pillows and friendly staff! I would stay here again. Parking is 50.00 a night and is off-sight.

Too noisy for sleep

This is a lovely hotel, but lacks the most basic requirement. The ability to sleep! The lobby and room are very nice, well decorated, and clean. Comfy bed, nice bathroom. On checking in the front desk person warned me that it can be noisy. I asked for a non-street vew room, but was told there weren't any available. It wasn't just a little noise. There is a night club across the street and for hours the noise was so bad I wasn't able to sleep at all. I may as well have been in the club with them. If you're planning to enjoy late night partying yourself, this might be an option for you. Noise ended around 3am. But I was there for work, not a good choice.
