Tenderloin in your face

staff was lovely but needed to warn hotel guests regarding Tenderloin district and all the issues this implies--a lot of noise at night, most nights (earplugs help but were not discussed or offered until after a sleepless night) and I was not warned to make sure to securely lock my window, which I would have done had I been alerted to security issues. My luggage was stolen out of my room by someone entering through the window and then exiting through the front door. Staff and police were very helpful but frankly I would have preferred a warning

small old hotel

It was very noisy at night. The room is small . TV is 21" tube . The image is not clear. The internet is really hard to get. Not worth that much money.

good location

the hotel takes itself more seriously than its old infrastructure merits, but they try pretty hard. OK to save money.

Good location

Service was decent and the room was nice. Alas, there is a large amount of street noise at this location, so it was very difficult to get a decent night of sleep.

Business Traveler looking for something out of the ordinary

Selected for location. Close to BART, Cablecars, and the Moscone Convention Center. Rooms are small but adequate. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Business Trip Jan 17-20, 2013

I had a business trip to San Francisco where I had to be at a seminar at the Marriott Marquis downtown. As opposed to staying at the conference hotel for close to $300 per night, I chose to stay here an approximate 5 min walk away for about 1/3 of the price. While the room was small, it was clean and had everything I needed. The front desk people were very attentive always making sure to greet me and smiling. For the price and convenience it was a great choice and i would certainly return again if I needed to be in Downtown San Francisco.

Gem of a hotel in a great location

Loved the thematic decor of this little place. The location was great and convenient for my meetings and sightseeing. The staff was fantastic and couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are a little small, but why stay inside in such a great city anyway? A little noisy with the street traffic, but foam earplugs blocked it out. I will definitely stay here again!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Check out Tartine Bakery at 600 Guererro Street. It's a 35 min walk from the hotel, but easy to get to and find. The morning buns are the best! Also Old Siam thai food right up the street from the hotel was great, too!
