Very friendly & helpful

The front desk staff were very friendly & helpful. The only issue we had was the maid service didn't change the sheets even though; we put the card out indicating we wanted them changed. The maid was smoking marijuana in the room when we walked in. Overall the Abri is a nice hotel and we recommend anyone wanting to stay close to the trolly/cable cars to stay there.

Three night stay

This hotel has a great location but that's the best part. First night was so noisy from 2 bars downstairs. Changed rooms into a very small dark room. Only had one very small window that looked out on to a roof which was completely enclosed with walls which went up 3 stories. Very dangerous in the event of a fire. at check out the front desk refused to give us a receipt or any type of printout

Hello, I am sorry to hear that your stay with us was not successful. Please accept my sincere apology if either room on the street side or an inner room did not meet your needs. With our location, there are only two choices that we can give guests in terms of room location. Either the street side or inside room away from the street. Also, please know that when our guest booked through a third party, the front desk is unable to provide our guest a detailed copy of their room bill because the guest paid the third party company directly (Expedia, Travelocity etc.) I am sorry if this was not communicated to you by the front desk. Thank you for your feedback. Stay vibrant.

Abri Hotel

Pros: Price and Convenience. Clean and Quiet.
Cons: Place for Ladies to put Make up on. Room smelled a bit odd.
Location: Close to Theaters and Shopping.
Very happy with our one Nite Stay at the Abri Hotel. Small but very Clean and Quiet Room. Welcome Gift Bag was a nice touch with Sangria Wine, Chips, Fruit Bar, 2 Bottles of Water. Walking Distance to Golden Gate Theater, where we had Tickets to see Cabaret. Had Dinner to the Restaurant connected to the Hotel. Got a $10.00 Gift Card from the Hotel to eat there. Very reasonable Price for Room in the City.

Great location in Union Square!

Pros: Location! Location! Location!
Cons: It took about 30 minutes for valet to bring our car up front (on a Sunday morning).
Location: Union Square, restaurants, bars, and shopping.
Hotel Abri is central to everything in Union Square! A great place for couples or a friends getaways. The staff were great and incredibly helpful throughout our stay. Loved the complimentary happy hour shots! Our suite was clean and comfortable for a renovated boutique hotel. I highly recommend booking if you're the type wanting to spend the day exploring the city and be out all day as it's within walking distance for just about every activity. If you want onsite services like a day spa or pool, you'll want to look somewhere else.

Great location and beautiful room

I travel to San Francisco several times throughout the year and had never stayed at Abri before. What a pleasant surprise! My room was great, the staff very accommodating, and the location was perfect. What a sweet little gem! I will definitely stay here again.

Excellent location, small but comfortable room

Pros: Close restaurants
I found the room to be quite adequate for my needs, though it was small relative to many American (though not European) alternatives. The location, within a couple blocks of Union Square and just off Market Street, is excellent for both walking and public transportation (and is quite close to the downtown car rental agencies). The staff was very helpful and gracious.

Fantastic Boutique Hotel in the heart of Union Square

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, excellent staff, close to the bart and muni
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Abri. The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming, not to mention accommodating. We had reserved a king size bed, but when we checked in they didn't have any available so they upgraded us to a suite for no extra charge! This was a huge relief because with all the reviews we read before booking our trip, a common theme in San Fransisco is small hotel rooms. Our friends were staying at the Hilton down the street from us and they told us their room was smaller than most of their closets at home. I can't comment on the size of the standard rooms at Abri, but if you can upgrade to a suite at a minimal charge I would recommend doing so...it was nice to have the extra space. The staff was also very knowledgeable when it came to things to do in the city and gave us some great recommendations. One of those recommendations was for a wine tasting boat tour around the bay by San Fransisco Bay Boat Cruises , which turned out to be one of the best things we did during our stay! Actually more fun than our Napa Trip! The only negative I would have to say about Hotel Abri and it really isn't a negative is that the Union Square area is very busy with tourists, locals, and bums (lots of bums, but that appears to be a San Fransisco thing). If you are looking for a location that is more low-key I would suggest looking elsewhere. Our room was on the third floor and without having a few cocktails before hitting the sack, it might have been difficult to fall asleep with all the street noise. However, if you are looking for a very clean and new boutique hotel in the heart of the action (with a great staff), Hotel Abri is definitely the one for you!

Small quiet hotel with decent value

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: street noise can be heard
The room was clean and fairly modern inside. The building is older of course and some street noise can be heard in the room. This is especially true on the lower floors where I stayed. This is really my only minor complaint.
