              6.2

              The hotel staff on duty when we arrived was very nice and explained everything very well, he also gave us a few heads up and pointers about the town.

              There were a few things I did not like. One being the loud noisy street outside, one of the nights i think there was a bumfight outside or something. Another thing we did not like was the using of the stairs, we are not lazy people, but those stairs give ya' a work out, and using the elevator was frowned upon. Lastly, we were told that the continental breakfast would be in the lobby we checked in at between 8-10 everymorning,,,, we went down there every morning, and didn't find any food or drink at all. odd.

              You need to ring the doorbell to get in the building

            • Couple
              6.2

              Location, and quietness of the room. Room with microwave oven, fridge and bath tub.

              Don't expect a real breakfast, it's just coffee and few cheap pastries served in the lobby (no seats).

            • Group of friends
              6.4

              The desk clerk was extremely helpful even to the extent that he explained the excentricities of the very old elevator and told us the way to walk back to Union Square to avoid the questionable characters hanging out in the vicinity near the hotel. The owner has made some attempts to upgrade the old hotel with nice wallpaper and paint in the hallways. The murals in the reception area are nice.

              The room, though adequate, didn't provide anything beyond the very basic necessities. I'm accustomed to having tissues and toiletries available in the bathroom. As we left the hotel I was almost struck by a young woman struggling to get away from a young man, who was holding onto her. We weren't sure if we should intervene, but cautiously choose not to. It was unsettling.

              Nothing This hotel is a scam. They tried the classic bait and switch on us. Front desk man was unreasonable and almost became violent when requesting a refund. Made a scene yelling at the the Booked.net operator and continued to threaten myself and my friend. Rooms were disgusting.... Left without staying in the room and were forced to dispute the charges with visa. I strongly advise not staying at this hotel under any condition.

              Unsanitary, just about everything other than location. This hotel is a scam. They tried the classic bait and switch on us. Front desk man was unreasonable and almost became violent when requesting a refund. Made a scene yelling at the the Booked.net operator and continued to threaten myself and my friend. Rooms were disgusting.... Left without staying in the room and were forced to dispute the charges with visa. I strongly advise not staying at this hotel under any condition.

              7.4

              Near the city center. Clean room. Helpful staffs @ lobby.

              The elevator is out of service (10-12/june). So we have to climb 4 floors up/down. But it can be used to ferry the luggage. The heater is not working during "summer" or June, and during out stay the temperature is relatively low. Was told the "heater system" is centralized and auto turn on/off according to the temperature.

            • Couple
              3.2

              they leave you alone when your in your room.

              they stopped us everyday at the door to verify that we stayed thetr even after three days of being there. Also we couldnt have visitors. With the amount I paid I could have stayed at a much better pplacelace

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              The staff was very nice, family oriented. They helped us arrange an airport shuttle that worked out great. The hotel is right across the street from Dottie's True Blue Cafe which is the best breakfast we've ever had. It's also located close to the theater district which was a plus for us. The hotel is nice, but old. (It's an historical landmark.)

              The neighborhood is on the fringe of a high concentration of homeless people. There are loud sirens at night. The morning breakfast is weak.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The staff uas very frendly. The price was good. It had old time charm. Also the room was clean, and liked the shower with the glass doors.

              The elavator was out of order, had to walk up the stairs.

            • Couple
              4.6

              The male staff at the front desk, who I'm sure is the hotel owner, is very rude and arrogant. He treats every customer approaching the counter like they are disturbing him. During our 5-day stay, the toilet on the 3rd floor, and the only elevator, had been out of service - they didn't have any intention to fix them.

            • Single
              7.4

              It is very inexpensive for San Francisco. I had all the basic necessities. It was clean.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Very conveniently located in the Theatre district. Quiet, clean, twenty-four hour street entrance security. Reminiscent of older hotels in many European cities.

              Elevator was not working.

            • Couple
              4.2

              I liked the location- walgreens down the street. Bus stops aren't far, even the bus terminal wasn't far away.

              I did not like that I was to be told what to do in my room, or how to live in my room. I also didn't like the "full continental breakfast" it was a small "pastry" and juice or coffee. The rooms weren't all that clean, and definately did not match the internet suites. Yes, I understand the concept shared bath, but when you also have to take your tp with you, that was a little upsetting.

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              For a short stay the hotel is very much convient and close by other restaraunts and shoping center. Its the center of town.

              Living on upper floors is not convinient because the elevator is out of service and one has to dragg suite casses from the lobby to the upper floors. The area is too congested with traffic and homeless folks roming the street all the times.

            • Couple
              2.8

              The night-shift reception guy was nice

              The manager was rude, the evelator was broken and they didnt seem to plan on fixing it any time soon, all in all it wasn't very clean, and the area is pretty rough. You can find similar deals in much better hotels.
