    Location, location, location! No air conditioning, never was able to get on their wifi so don't expect to spend much time in the room. Coffee at free breakfast was decent.

    Rooms are lacking when compared to known chain hotels. Breakfast is essentially bread and juice. If you can spend a bit more per night, stay somewhere else. Otherwise, get a high floor room.

    Stay away from the 2-room suites on the 6th floor! Dirty walls and carpet, mold on bathroom sink and faucets, duct tape wrapped shower head, bathtub faucet backplate detached from shower wall. Read more

    My room clean and comfy. The only problem was the noise. Looking at other reviews, I definitely got the worst room location. Didn't bug me personally but it was pretty loud.

    They made me print out my own confirmation letter in the lobby before checking me in (despite showing them the reference number on my phone).

    Maybe we were lucky, but it's not that bad as Zagat says (overall rank 13 of 25). Especially, comparing to price. Just don't rely on "breakfast", don't take a room facing to cable and it's gonna be OK

    Wi-Fi sucks, bedbugs, lots of noise from the street, cold rooms, and...the only redemption is it's good location in the city.

    Don't stay here, the rooms had mold. We asked to get move and the second room also had mold. The valet parking was a nightmare 75 dollars for parking in two night. The worst customer service !

    Rooms are nice. Showers are fine. Don't know what people were complaining about. Continental breakfast does suck.

    Right outside the hotel are so many restaurants and bars that food lovers will adore. Try Market Street and the authentic food at the nearby Little Italy.

    Serious mold problems. Check your shower stalls and "closets." As someone with a major mold allergy that triggers migrainous vertigo, this is a big NO. Noisy, but expected since windows are old.

    The hotel is old. The bedrooms are small but is enough for a couple and it is clean. I liked it. It's very near from almost all stores.

    Centrally located. Wifi is not very well in each room. Beds ok. Shower gives hot, but little water. Rooms could use an upgrade. Good for a night out in SF.

    When on the lower floors try to avoid the rooms facing the cable car street. It tends to be pretty noisy!

    Small, but comfy rooms. Be sure to go to the Hospitality Hour and meet a few of the 4 remaining tenants from the pre-hotel days. Trip.
