PROS: Great safe location in San Francisco! Was greeted by a lovely man by the name of Jack at check in who looked after us and had excellent customer service throughout out stay. The room was clean and tidy. Housekeeping staff were lovely and polite. CONS: Welcome to the Rock.... and by that I don't mean Alcatraz. I mean the rock hard beds at the Handlery. We had a premium room, and expected more than sleeping on what felt to be a prison bed. I rang reception after the first night to ask to be transferred to a room with softer beds, due to us both having back pain from the night spent in the rock hard beds. On the phone to reception, I spoke with a female (Sep 4th in the morning) who was quite abrupt, rude attitude and dismissive saying that all beds were alike so she would send up some extra comforters and padding. Which she did not follow up on, thus we ended up having uncomfortable sleepless nights for the rest of our stay.

City location

Conviently located and within walking distance to shops, hotels and public transport. Staff were helpful and polite. Only negative we stayed an extra night and had to pay full price.

Handy to transport, clean but shabby rooms, in need of an update. Bar and restaurant attached- atmospheric, food was good, nice wine. Just be aware this is an old hotel in need of renovation. If room is on the street beware of the loud and constant noises of a city through the night. They do provide ear plugs! We liked that you could open windows, but not the street noise. There are rooms with openable windows in the courtyard which would be better, we should have asked to be moved!! Would recommend if you're aware of these factors. The pictures always lie!!

Superb in every way

We would definitely stay at the Handlery again. Couldn’t fault a thing and we were even treated to a special gift basket from the hotel to celebrate my birthday - loved the hotel, the location and the breakfasts. Thanks Handlery!
