Nice Staff, Fine Hotel

This hotel might be pretty standard, but the staff was super friendly and helpful, and that really made it stand out to me. I had a very pleasant stay.

Great location

Great location in terms of being close to everything. Kind of in the ghetto, but as long as you're careful you should be fine.

Okay Hotel for 1-night stay

We were supposed to have a single Queen bed & we had two Full beds. Our room was directly next to the elevator & the motor vibrated all night. Would have complained had we stayed for more than one night. + there is a noisy bar next door & we were on the second floor, so it was loud until after it closed.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The best Thrift/Junk shop in the world located between 5th & 6th St. on Howard @ 952 Howard St. The store is called Moving Sale, but they're not going anywhere [It's just the name]. It's better than a garage sale, it's the whole house!

le bijou

We went to a conference at the Moscone Centre, and it was very convenient, within walking distance. The price was good, it was a cute little hotel, nothing ourstanding but clean and quirky. There were a lot of hooligans hanging outside the hotel, but the door to hotel is locked at night so they cannot get in. I will probably stay here again.

Best deal ever

The location of the hotel is the biggest advantage. you are in the downtown of SF and every thing you can need is around you( metro, bus, shop, restaurant, clubs...)! moreover the airport is directly linked with the hotel with the BART metro

Nearby good stuff

We extended our business vacation and downgraded to a more affordable place on our own dime. This hotel was one of the cheaper we could find. The place was clean and cute and cozy (our particular room was a little small, but it was the cheapest room). The night front desk guy was super nice and friendly, the woman during the day wasn't unfriendly, but not as welcoming. The hotel was nearby union square and loads of public transportation. The particular block it is situated on is not the greatest, expect loud drunks and such during the night (they provide earplugs). If your window is opposite of Eddy, it would probably be nice and quiet. That being said, you walk one block in 3 directions and its nicer areas. The hotel provides free wifi but I could never get it to work on my computer. The front desk guy offered to connect me with tech support though I never took him up on it. They also give a free continental breakfast which consists of decent coffee, tea, cereal, bagels. muffins and hard boiled eggs. Overall I'd stay there again, but I'd bring some sleeping pills and maybe even a super soaker to shoot at the loud drunks at 3am ;)

Hotel Bijou

The price is right in an outstanding location - convenient to Bart & Muni Metro - easy to get to the airport or from Amtrak; near the cable car line. Rooms are adequate & clean and continental breakfast is provided. The neighborhood can be a bit noisy at night, but no serious complaints.
