So lets start off by the initial check in process. I was greeted by an old african american female who was REALLY RUDE. She cut me off in the middle of a question. Luckily the next day she was gone and TARA was there who made up for her bad customer service. Tara was very kind, and attentive. The location...

Half the price of other hotels, close to everything, shuttle available but because of closeness to everything I just used uber and was cheap enough. Clean modern hotel, good beds lively bathroom. Neighbour hood has a lot of homeless...

From outside hotel is amazingly good looking. Room was very clean, staff were really helpful and super kind. Hotel position was really good, near to Union Square where you can walk in 5minutes and from there you can get anywhere very easily. Tours were easily booked from the reception and taxi´s / uber can be ordered from the reception as...

It is tough to gauge something unknown unless you get a first hand experience of it. So, first time in San Francisco that too an Indian knowing nothing about the culture (the real world I mean just from the books movies TV is not knowing) seeing so many homeless people was a shock, honestly. Not that we do not have...

The Cova provided us with exactly what it said on the tin (unlike some hotels). The location, rooms and services were perfectly adequate for the price, which was reasonable. Staff were happy and helpful, and a good breakfast was included. There are no fridge faciliites in the rooms, which was a surpise, but I guess keeps costs down, and the...

The hotel has a good location near the downtown center of San Fransisco. The room was clean, breakfast was very good and even the gym was well equipped. Front desk staff is extremly friendly and helpful at all times. Just a couple of things could use improvement. The gym needs to be looked after more frequently (need to have some...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, stylish, confortable and quiet. The complimentary breakfast buffet in the adjacent restaurant was good. Lovely rooftop indoor lounge area, and outdoor patio with fantastic views all around. The neighborhood around the hotel feels a little uncomfortable, but no one bothered us--no panhandling or hassle. We walked from the...

We stayed at the Cova Hotel for 3 nights and couldn't fault the hotel. The check in process was quick and easy. The rooms were clean, large and airy with big windows. The bathroom was very nice too offering all the usual complimentary soaps and gels. One thing to note however - the district this hotel is located, The Tenderloin,...

Given the price of San Francisco accommodation this place is terrific value but you do need to know what you are booking. It is been renovated to be modern, clean and spacious. It is also very close to the heart of San Francisco. It includes a simple but free breakfast - nice bonus. It is on the edge of a...

Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms and reasonably close to everything downtown. I read some of the other reviews. The negative comments about the neighbourhood are justified, but out of the control of the hotel. In two days I walked most of the central area and found that the dirt and street people are not unique to the area around the...
