Cozy European-style Respite

Very pleasant hotel, very green, and amazingly comfortable beds and linens. Rooms are modest but cozy. Think European. There is a room safe large enough to hold your laptop. Overall space is used efficiently. My room was surprisingly quiet and well-lit given the central location in the city. The only snag was getting a wifi connection. This took 20-30 minutes the first two nights and wasn't happening at all on night three. It was no biggee. I would have asked for assistance had it been an issue. So, that was on me. Do ask if you have similar problems. The staff are very helpful.

A Week in San Francisco

The hotel was clean and simple. The people at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Not crazy about the bathroom . . . It had a sliding door that did not close all of the way and left very little room for privacy. Noisy toilet, too. The location was perfect for us. Right at the edge of Chinatown . . . lots of great stores and cafes . . . walking distance to the piers. Thank you, Orchard Garden!

Wine Bar on Grant Ave sells amazing iced coffees and croissants. . . It was the perfect spot to grab breakfast-on-the-go when we had to get up and out of the hotel for Muir Wood tours and Napa tours. (Tower Tours was a pretty good company to go with for the tours, btw!)

Great location to Chinatown, easy access to BART, Union Square

Just finished my week long stay here, the location is top notch like I mentioned above. BART to SFO airport for only $16 and change roundtrip. As others have mentioned, take the Montgomery exit and not Powell (though it's not too far of a walk either) and a few blocks later you're there. Staff is excellent, willing to give advice, suggestions for any needs you have. Room was clean, comfortable King size bed, and decent size. Only issues I ever had was my room water pressure would fluctuate at times while showering (others flushing, using bathroom in adjacent rooms?) and a bit noisy at times from outside noises (might have been my location near back alley). Great stay and would recommend!

Exactly what I hoped it would be

This hotel worked perfectly for me. It was close to Chinatown and centrally located. The staff treated me very respectfully, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. I prefer to not think about my hotel because that usually involves a complaint and the OG fit the bill. The rooms were well decorated, and though not tremendously spacious, had a enough room to maneuver without feeling cramped. The elevators moved efficiently and came quickly. The eco-friendly rooms almost caused me to choose a different hotel for worry of toilets that did not flush or low pressure showers. Neither of these concerns were warranted as the green-ness did not compromise the ammenties of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Nicely built green concious hotel

The room was quite nice, everything looked fairly new and very clean. The staff at the reception was a bit rude when I asked for a breakfast place recommendation, until the doorman stepped in and pushed the rude receptionist aside to actually help the customer.

The cafe accross the street plays actual French music from the 80's and serves an authentic French menu (I am reviewing this as a french-native).

classy and comfy

This is a great place to stay - clean, comfortable, very friendly staff, and very well located. There's a free business center and small fitness room. It's literally next to the Chinatown Gate, and everything is accessible from public transport. It's a short walk to hundreds of shops, restaurants, etc. etc. The bedding, fixtures and furniture were all clean and modern.

Good deal in SF

Beautiful, clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Some minor distractions, such as the lack of a bottle opener at the mini-bar and the failure to restock it with bottled water the second night.
