This place is a nice place to stay, given the rooms are tiny but this is expected in this type of town. The rooms have everything you need and it is well decked out. The staff are friendly and it is located right near union square with easy access to all public transport.

The location of the hotel and the accommodations there were very good. We were able to walk around Union Square, Chinatown, and visit many shops nearby. The hotel had an old world charm and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Room was small, but very clean. We enjoyed our visit.

This is a old hotel, they have these steam heaters and when I went it happened to be cooler so I needed this heater on. I didn't know it took over 30 minutes for these to turn on but even before that happens, you have to call down to the front desk to have them turn it on, which I...

Super pleasant and helpful staff. Perfect location, clean room and bathroom. Everything was very close. Bus tours are 5 minutes walking distance, union square as well, china town is 5-10 minutes walk, pier 39 is 25 minutes walking distance. The big problem for all hotels in San Francisco is parking, hotels do not have it so you have to park...

Lovely two-night stay close to everything, charming, clean. A bit small, but normal for San Francisco. Parking is far and pricey so if you have car, it will be a negative, but, once again, this is typical of most hotels in large urban areas.

This hotel is in a good location, the beds were comfortable if somewhat small and the shower water pressure was good and that is about all that recommends it. The bedroom and bathroom were very small, the lighting was poor

Union Square is a great area for tourists to stay, especially those who are interested in shopping, cable cars, and downtown dining. But anyone sensitive to noise may want to avoid older "boutique" hotels and opt for the high-rise concrete properties like the Grant Hyatt or the Marriott. However if value is important and you can handle the noise, The...

The staff - front desk, concierge, and cleaning staff - are wonderful. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. The hallways are like a trip into the early 1900's, but the rooms are updated, modern, and very comfortable. All this just steps away from a Powell-Hyde cable car stop, restaurants, and shops and a couple blocks from Union Square. Loved it!
