The people that live and tend to Luz are one of a kind! They were there in every way possible... even riding in the car with us to show the garage. We will be coming back the next time we are in the city!

This is a european style turn of the century hotel popular to european tourists. Its not your four star hotel sized rooms but each room is individually decorated with modern decor, a flat screen tv. Mostly shared baths but is kept clean by the wonderful staff that will hardly say no to a guests request...If its within reason, they will...

As a single traveller I didn't need any fancy hotel in San Francisco, just a clean place with a great location. Luz perfectly matched my criteria. My room was small, but very clean. It had a little sink; toilet and shower were communal but spotlessly clean. Wifi was working excellently, and staff was friendly. Location is ideal, just a short...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! It was nothing too fancy and perfect for our mini vacay. We never had any problems with the shared bathroom and the manager was very helpful and informative. I loved it and def would stay here again :)

The Luz Hotel on Geary Street was perfect. Affordable, spotlessly clean, comfortable room. Sink in the room with toilet and shower located down the hall. Never had to wait for either the toilet or the shower on my two day stay. The staff are friendly, the location is close to everything, lots of restaurants, groceries, and cafes nearby. The walk...

The hotel was perfect! Nice and clean room, good price, very good location - one of the main streets, 10 minutes walk to city center. And what is the most important the owner of Luz hotel is very helpful! If you need anything he is always willing to help you! It was great stay!

I must admit I was scared to stay there after reading some bad reviews but at the end of my stay I was beyond happy I decided to stay at the Luz. The manager and the staff are extremely cheerful and helpful and do their best to make you feel at home. My flight had a very bad delay so...

From booking my stay at the Luz back in February, the hotel staff were super helpful from the get go. The staff at the hotel did a really amazing job making sure my stay was enjoyable and comfortable. If you are staying at the hotel longer than a night or two (I was here 6 nights), I highly recommend that...

Hi Jordan, thank you for your kind words and for staying with us. I read your review also at booking.com. Very informative feedback. You could be a good ambassador for The Luz. You got it down from how to get here and where to go breakfast and stuff. I can tell that you are well traveled. You've probably seen most...

Perfect location for our four days in San Fransisco. Close to Union Square, nightlife and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and were able to fit us in for an extra night as I wanted to stay on here rather than the hotel I had booked elsewhere. Small hotel with small rooms, some with private bathrooms, some shared, but...

Our hosts were very friendly and helpful (told us breakfast places and which buses we needed to catch), we had a lovely room with comfortable bed. Lovely old building. Only thing we would say could be improved was the shower heat could do with being hotter. Not anything that would stop us from booking again though as we had a...

Hi Katherine, thank you so much for your feedback. I am aware of the water that it could be hotter. This happened when i changed the water tank. I am still looking for a good plumber to fix it. One came and worked on it but unable to fix it the way i want. Will keep trying. I appreciate your...
