          • Couple
            7.8

            Ultimate location next to Union Square and Powell Street cable car turntable. Fair price. Very clean rooms. Good size rooms. Reception open 24 hours a day. Kind and helpful overnight staff at the reception (African American).

            Daytime staff at the reception (Caucasian) rude and uninterested, again. Bed and pillows could be more comfortable.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            good location, very near Union Square and Powell Cable car line

            room are quite small, refurbish recently (but not totally well done)

          • Couple
            7.0

            Good location for shopping

            Hotel satff is not freindly. they do not introduce hotel facilities at all.

          • Group of friends

            The location was great. The room were basic but okay.

            Price was too expensive for what you get. The original room i stayed in was horrible. The room was located under the restaurants ventalation system or something so it was very loud. The staff was not able to switch us right away but insisted that the noice would shut of at 9:30pm and start only after 9am. This was not true because 8am on a saturday the noise began. After insisting that this was not acceptable the receptionist finally switched our room. The other room was much better. Overall i did not find that the price reflected the quality of the hotel.

            Central location - simple, clean, safe and functional

            No internet connection in room

          • Couple
            4.6

            The location

            for $120 you would expect a lot more than having to share a bathroom at the end of the hall. Wven worse was that the neighbouring appartment had a door into ours (which was locked). I could hear every time they went to the bathroom, washed their teeth or took a shower.

          • Older travelers
            3.8

            The fact that the hotel is on a busy strip made shopping and commuting convenient.

            The fact that only one front desk staff was visible made getting assistance very difficult. I think as paying guests, staff should be available to assist with needs, comfort, and querries.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            The location was great. Close to Muni cable and trollies and bart. Shopping and Business were just arouond the corner

            Our room did not resemble those on the website, the floors creaked and sloped terribly - which made the beds slope. The bathroom door sqeaked terribly. There was nowhere to hang towels and there was no room service. For the price we would have liked to have at least a bar fridge. No ice machine ,no microwave and only one chair.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            Great location (bring ear plugs thou street can be loud at night) spacious room (really) fridge, iron, tv, hair drier.

            Front desk girl (day shift) lacked any kind of social skills, rude and unhelpful. The other two were nice.

          • Single
            7.4

            The room is a nice example of modern with old american achitecture.i liked the "loft design"

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Location was good and also the family suite with three separete sooms was spacious.

            There was no air-conditioning and even it was not very hot in the city the rooms were too warm for sleeping. Windows were open during the night. As rooms were pointing to the street noise during the nighttime was terrible. So make sure you do not have windows pointing to the street...

          • Single
            7.4

            I had an issue the other night, that is people in the other flat had some sort of party, so I couldn't sleep! The hotel had no ac as well!

            Location

            Nothing good, I did not find the room I booked, I wasn't compensated , the room quality was poor, noisy, no curtains, small rooms and price was not cheap. I will never stay again.

          • Single
            5.0

            Location is great, right in the centre of the city

            The curtains on the windows were far too translucent. They hardly blocked out any light so I found it impossible to get any sleep. The pillows and bedding were also slightly damp, which made me feel that the bed was not properly aired. The fridge in the room kept buzzing throughout the night, which also made it impossible to sleep. Overall, I had almost no sleep that night. The comfort of the room was absolutely awful.
