Location was excellent especially for trolley bus and street car to Fisherman’s Wharf. Great spot close to terrific Moz’s cafe. Perhaps hotel room was a bit dated.

The location was perfect for us - direct BART from SF airport to Powell/Market station then 200m walk. Room was comfortable and clean. Staff very friendly. Nothing not to like. Will stay again.

The hotel was pleasant and in a great location. A little street noise coming up to the 4th floor and the air conditioner was pretty noisy. Apart from that the staff were very helpful and friendly.

This is an old hotel with very small rooms. We were two adults and a 12yo with large suitcases plus carry ons. There simply wasn't enough room to even store our cases. At best the rooms, which I believe are all the same size, are good for two people. The bathroom was super small.

Physical condition is appalling. There is the smell of decay about the place. No soundproofing so very noisy. Had trouble sleeping. Way overpriced. However it is a good location, and the hotel restaurant is very good.

Staff - some were nice and some looked like they wished they weren’t there Location was fantastic. The room was really dated. The carpet was old and hence appeared dirty. The air conditioner doesn’t really produce any cool air so the room was hot! The windows were broken and fixed by tapes only. It was hard to shut the windows tight so it can be a bit noisy at times. We were too scared to force the window shut as they were broken. The cleaners are really friendly, and our room were always clean. I think they did a fabulous job for an old room with old carpet etc For the price you pay it was a disappointing experience but Looked like it was one of the cheaper ones around town.

Good location

The staff where friendly but the hotel is very old, bathroom needs updating. No international plugs, and there is no restaurant or bar it’s kind of joined on the side but mostly occupied by locals off the street.
