The Mithila Hotel is a charming European-style hotel located in the heart of downtown San Francisco; offering beautiful guest rooms' warm gracious services and excellent value surrounded near major attractions. We are walking distance to Union Square, Chinatown, theaters and world -class restaurants. Together with our commitment to quality, you'll enjoy a high standard of hospitality reflected in the quiet elegance of our surroundings and the personal attention from our friendly staff, dedicated to making your stay an enjoyable experience. The Mithila Hotel was established in 1920 & fully restored in 1998. Restoration took nearly 2 years to complete taking care to maintain original ceiling moldings and marble flooring. The Mithila Hotel, formerly the Roy croft Hotel, is a highly regarded boutique hotel with modern amenities and affordable rates. Our family has been at this location for the last 20 years. Along the way we have changed our name once, but we have learned that the most important characteristic customers look for has not changed a friendly and welcoming staff that exudes traditional hospitality. We opened The Mithila Hotel with a simple idea: at your favorite hotel, you feel like you're coming home. You'll find warm, comfortable surroundings and friendly staff who greet you by name. Since there are only 40 rooms, you'll find peace and quiet. Parking is available offsite for fourteen dollars. What does The Mithila Hotel do better than any other hotel? We steadily attend to all of your needs in a relaxed atmosphere. We know you need a nice umbrella when it rains, an idea for a cozy and affordable restaurant, directions to Fisherman's Wharf. No problem. Everything you need is handled without a charge and without a fuss. It's a pleasure to serve you.

Clean- comfort-great staff- cheap

I reserved this hotel for 1 night and stayed for 2. It was a busy weekend in SF so hotel prices were extreme high. Found this hotel cheaper on its website. I would stay here again. Older hotel, but Why pay lots more for the same accomadations.. Great Staff and location.

Comfortable & Clean

This is a comfortable and clean hotel -- a little worse for wear and tear -- that's centrally located. It has a minimal complimentary breakfast and friendly staff.

No complaints for the price

This hotel has everything you need to survive for a cheap stay in San Francisco. It's not a particularly fancy place, but it's clean and is in a great location. You can't expect much more for the price but would recommend overall.

Reasonable Weekend Getaway

We stressed over choosing this hotel because of some of the previous reviews, however, we were pleased with our choice for this particular weekend. We were not wanting to spend a lot of money on the room and did not care if there were alot of frills as we were not planning to spend much time in the room. It was clean and comfortable with ample space even if it could use a little TLC on the decor. The bathroom seemed to have been updated not too long ago. There was a TV though only about 10 channels to view which worked fine for us. We were surprised that we were not able to hear a lot of noise outside the room without an airconditioner running. The staff was nice and pleasant to deal with. We did not feel unsafe and came and went at different times of the day. Since there is no airconditioning in the hotel, it would be really helpful for them to install ceiling fans or have portable fans available. We had stayed at the Hotel Union Square on a previous visit and the room there was nicer as far as the amenities and decor though it was a lot smaller. That area of the city seemed a bit nicer but there were more homeless people around there. The locaction of the Mithila was pretty convenient to the bus lines to get to Fisherman's Wharf and other areas, with just a few blocks walk. We used a shuttle service ($15 each person) to get to the airport so we would not have to mess with luggage and transfers with the bus and train. Be sure to make a trip to the Tower for great views! We would probably stay here again for the same price, just not in the warmer months unless they provided fans as it would be too warm in the room.

Inexpensive, but you get what you pay for

Stayed here for one night, and don't know if I could handle much more. The room wasn't terribly small for an economy queen. The problem, the sheet were peeling and a little threadbare, our towels had large holes in them, and the bathroom and shower were on another floor. If I had known 2 floors of rooms were to be sharing a bathroom, I would have paid $10 more to stay at a different hotel that is much nicer and has a bathroom for every 3 rooms. Overall it was quiet, and we never saw another guest, but I got the feeling the carpet hadn't been replaced in 20 years and something terrible had happened in my room due to the cracked bed side lamp and completely ruined lampshade.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk to Civic Center, so within walking distance to bill graham auditorium and events at the Civic Center. But if walking home late, expect ladies/men of the night on every corner surrounding hotel

Value oriented

Hotel manager was accommodating and performed an upgrade to a Queen size bed with a bit more sq ft and a private bathroom for only $7.00 (yes, this was an upsell). The original booking was for a double bed with a community bathroom with even less sq ft than the one I got. The room is approx 11'x10' with the bathroom being 5'x4'. The hotel does have thin walls, creaking stairs, an adequate breakfast. Internet is provided for free, but I did not use it. Breakfast consists of apple, lemon, and cherry pastries; mini blueberry, banana nut and poppy seed muffins; instant oatmeal, and coffee. This location is located near several restaurants in a bit more unique part of town. The latest the office will recognize a late check in is approx 12:30am, so be sure to check in before that time as the office is not staffed past midnight. The room was clean, however, the carpet needs to be steam cleaned as it shows its worn age. The bathroom looks remodeled as opposed to the rest of the room. The hotel in general, does have a slight smell. Hotel does provide a microwave and mini fridge in the room. Paint has built up over the years as it has been repainted several times without being stripped off. Cathode ray tube TV is based off Dish Network with mostly local channels on analog signal.

Price is in line with what you get

You get exactly for what you pay for, a good clean room with comfy sheets, very clean and nothing fancy. So I would rate it good, they have good location, offer good service, at a good price, want something nicer, then PAY MORE!!
