To many hidden charges

We were charged for everything at the Hotel Nikko. If we wanted to use the pool, we had to pay for a 10 dollar fee. If we wanted to use the internet we had to pay a fee. Parking our rental car for the night cost us 45 dollars. We thought that internet and access to the pool was part of the base package and felt ripped off.

Good location, a bit pricey

The room was very clean, although a bit small. The location was perfect...very central in Union Square and close to the Bart station and plenty of cabs available. The main downside was the price of "amenities;" although I've experienced hotels charging for wifi, $17 a day seemed very steep. Luckily there was a Starbucks attached to the hotel. Our main disappointment was the fact that they charged for access to the pool and gym....everywhere else I have ever stayed included this. It was $20, we didn't even bother to clarify if that was per day or per stay since we knew we didn't want to pay anything additional regardless. It was a bummer though, because we definitely would have hit the pool or gym in the mornings otherwise. Overall, we had a decent stay; nothing fabulous, but definitely very clean and centrally located.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The Tenderloin area has a bad rap for crime and is a place we were told to avoid, but we found they had some great dining options. As long as you go around dinner time and not very late into the night, and walk with someone else of course, we didn't feel unsafe and found great places. The standout was Lers Ros Thai....amazing!!

Nice hotel but overpriced amenities

The front desk employees where super friendly and helped with dinner reservations. The hotel is very nicely decorative and rooms are comfy. I didn't appreaciate the fact that they wanted to charge us to use to gym AND pool at 25$ each. The check out is 11am, a late check out is 12 and anything after starts at 50$ and goes up! Two eggs Benedict and juice ordered to the room was $70. Just seems like the hotel pulls you in with all there amenities and then over charges for everything. Would I go here again, maybe if they didn't over charge for everything!

Every Little Thing Costs

The Hotel Nikko had impressive marble floors in the expansive lobby, which I guess is part of being a four-star hotel. Our room was comfortable (the beds were really comfortable), though the layout wasn't conducive to two people working comfortably on their laptops. Though the room was clean, I noticed that the woodwork hadn't been wiped, espectially the bathroom door. The iron leaked. Wireless internet cost $10 a day per computer;the fitness center cost $10 per day, per person; food prices were laughable, but since the Union Square area has many interesting and reasonable restaurants, that didn't effect us. We didn't read that the minibar, or whatever you call it, is equipped with sensors to charge you if you move something, until we'd picked up a bottle to look at it. Our mistake. Checking in and out was a breeze and the people were lovely and even though parking cost over $40 per day, the parking staff were wonderful.

We had a wonderful breakfast at Cafe Mason, half a block away and two lovely breakfasts at the Bean Cafe, five or six blocks away--and there are many, many more restaurants to choose from.

Very good!

This hotel is in a great location for shopping and getting on the street cars and buses. This is the first motel we have stayed at, that the house keeping hasn't bothered us. We stayed for 7 nights and 8 days, and not one time did we ever have anyone beating on our door or even hear anyone in the hallways. Top notch place to stay.

If you are in town to sight see, and are staying a few days, then get the ''city pass'' to get around town. And ride the ''bart'' to and from the airport.

the dining, shopping, entertainment, recreational activities are surrounding you at this location. many of these things are within walking distance. if not , the best way to get around is to buy a transit pass for the time that you are staying, hop on a cable car or other, and just go.

Great Hotel Best Location ever!

I planned this as a surprise for my husband's birthday. He was surprised and loved all the details that went into our stay starting with the Hotel Nikko! Great staff...beds, rooms-exactly as described. And for us the perfect location to enjoy all of San Francisco! We can't wait to return!

Go up two blocks on Powell to park. Do not wait for cable car in line. Will save time and this will get you going. Get 3 day pass for buses and you will be able to go every where with this pass.
