Room was extremely small. The location is great but I would definitely recommend getting a larger room for an extended stay. We were there for 5 nights and we felt very cramped

The staff were lovely and the location was excellent. It was quite noisy at night so be prepared to sleep through that or wear earplugs. Playing chess by the fireplace was a highlight!

Comfortable hotel

While the hotel is a bit tired/old looking the room was very comfortable and the location was great. There’s a seven 11 right across the road, it’s a 2 min walk to a cable car stop, a 4 min walk to Union square and approx a 7 min walk to the Powell BART station. If you’re looking for comfortable (but not 4 Star) at a reasonable price for San Fran then I would recommend The Cartwright.

Great hotel in excellent position. Close to Union.

Lovely corner room. Nicely furnished, small but had everything I needed except a safe. Smelt a little of smoke but it didn't bother me. Would definitely stay there again.

Location is fantastic.

Amazing friendly staff and a location that you cannot beat. Truly one block from Union Square. Some rooms have been renovated which are lovely. Would recommend asking for a renovated room as it is an old hotel so original rooms are dated. Edward on reception was a delight to deal with. Will definitely return in the future.

Sacrifice comfort for location

Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Provision of a bar fridge in the room.
Location: Only one black from Union Square where all the main shops are located and tourist buses depart from.
Historic old hotel with tiny rooms, teeny bathroom, no in-room fridge, no mini-bar, no view and no meals. However extremely well located close to Union Square and San Francisco sights. Staff were very friendly and helpful too. So if all you're after is a place to sleep, this hotel's perfect. . My credit card was disconcertingly charged US$75 deposit that has 3 days later not yet been refunded. Will have to chase that up.
