Mixed Review

This is a small boutique type hotel. On the positive side, the front desk staff was very personable and helpful and the location was great. Unfortunately, I would have difficulty recommending this hotel because I thought the additional parking expense of $33 per day was excessive, and while I could have dealt with the small room size, the room was not very clean. The carpeting was stained and dirty and the bed linens were less than crisp.

The San Francisco Library sponsors free historical/informational tours conducted by volunteers for many of the attractions in this fun city. Some examples include the Golden Gate Bridge, the Ferry Building, San Francisco's murals, etc. Check out their website for times and meet up locations,

Good place

Quite nice place to stay. Amazing Italian Bistro in the lobby. Helpful staff. Clean room, but no A/C at least at mine. The only concern I had was the window view and rug in corridors (it's too old). I do recommend.

First time in San Fran

Beautifully decorated, lavish and plush interior. Room 101 on the first floor is a phenomenal suite, and for the price I was blown away at the amenities provided in the room and around the hotel. Location couldn't have been any better, within walking distance to great places and great transit options. Highly recommended. Diego at the front desk was amazing!

Never been to an all friendly staffed hotel, wow!

I reserved a room for some friends from out of town and I did everything but stay in the hotel. I was waiting for my friends to come down from their room for breakfast and I was able to sort of just observer the lobby and happenings and I have to say the staff is really great at accommodating travelers. Any issue that needed attention they were able to help with. Directions, arriving too early, getting a cab, etc. They also have some cool furniture in the lobby.

Don't be fooled

One of the worst possible experience. Rooms are so small you could barely move. Not enough light to shave or put make up Very poor service. Dirty floors. No air circulation in the room. moldy smell. More like a haunted house than a Hotel.

Lay Over

We had a need to lay over in San Francisco for the night. This is a clean, convenient and reasonably priced hotel. Nice restaurant on site. Only drawback is that the rooms are claustrophobic.
