The hotel is very old but clean. Bare-bones to be sure, no microwave, no refrigerator. The staff is super friendly, very nice, professional and friendly! But the noise is horrible!! Garbage trucks come at night and early in the morning every day !!!! They are lifting up the big green metal containers, so the lids are slamming and banging and it is impossible to not be woken up. I realize there is nothing they can do about that, given the location of the hotel and it is what it is ...... Probably would not stay there again because of this issue.

This hotel is authentic San Francisco. It’s in an excellent location in Union Square and is absolutely charming on the inside . Our flight arrived late at midnight and there was a man at the desk to check us in right away

The elevator safety inspection had expired 22 months ago, on Jan. 1, 2017. When I told the desk clerk, he began shouting at me that the city was at fault. I asked him to stop shouting at me and he continued. I said I would report the hotel, he said to do it, on and on and on. That night when I returned to the hotel, the night desk clerk was sound asleep. A homeless woman had come in and was sitting in the hallway. Clearly, the owners have no concern for their guests' safety.

Well worth it!

I LOVE this hotel! It's small, VERY convenient, comfortable,and clean. It's 2 blocks from Union Square, so it's easy to catch a bus, BART, and/or sightseeing buses. It's close to Chinatown, there see lots of places to eat around, and I felt very safe in the hotel itself as well as walking around in that area by myself. My view wasn't great, but very few rooms come with a view,and I didn't spend a lot of time in my room. This is an old hotel so the bathrooms, showers and sink areas are compact. I love the old hotel look, the beautiful staircases, the tile lobby, the high ceilings, etc. The staff was great, it was , inexpensive, and I would absolutely stay there again as well as recommend it to my friends and family!
