I came to San Francisco on the 7th of Jun for a week as I was competing in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon on 10th Jun. I emailed them prior to my visit explaining this and that I would be travelling on my own from the UK and could I have a quiet room as I would need a lot... More

I loved the Cova hotel, the room was enormous, the bed wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom really nice. The staff could not have been more helpful, we had the complimentary breakfast in the hotel every morning and it was lovely. Free wifi was quick and no problem to connect to. We used the hotel shuttle service to Fisherman's Wharf and... More

Just returned from a long weekend in San Francisco and was so pleased with the Cova Hotel. Don't think I have seen it in my search for hotels on Trip Advisor before, but a friend booked the suite for us. It was very contemporary with a huge, beautiful bathroom and separate bedroom, big living room area with dining table and... More

I always stay at this hotel when I go to San Francisco. The rooms are large for SF standards, and always clean and nice. Hotels in SF are usually expensive despite the small and grim rooms. This hotel is much nicer with reasonable prices.. The breakfast is basic, but nice. The only downside is that the hotel is in Tenderloin,... More

Just stayed for five nights, definately wiuld stay again and reccommond to anyone. Cheap and better than expected. Clean updated hotel. Very friendly staff and very helpful with city info. Free shuttle service to fishermans wharf and union square. About 10-15 walk to union square (avoid going straight down Ellis-bad neighborhood). Free breakfast in mornings.

We stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel was pretty good. The beds were comfortable and rooms were clean, the breakfast was also good. The hotel is good value and it was easy to get to the main sights. Many have already commented on the fact that the hotel is near two missions, that help disadvantaged people. Although this made... More

I wanted to post a review because of all the mention of the bad location. I stayed for 4 nights and always felt safe and secure while staying here.

We had a great 3 day stay in a helpful, friendly enviroment. Not the best area but this hotel makes up for this by its good staff and free shuttle service. The continental breakfast was great. Good value.
