My wife and I spent 3 nights here in late September. The location was outstanding. The room met our needs. The breakfast was kind of a throwback to the continental breakfast of years ago, but with a waffle machine added. Since I avoid pastry and bread for breakfast, it was pretty slim for me. They could boost it in any number of ways. At very little cost, they could increase the cereal choices, perhaps adding real oatmeal. The location is close to the junction of North Beach Neighborhood, Chinatown, and the Financial District. It is a 25 minute walk to Fisherman's wharf and 20 minutes walk to Union Square. There are dozens of restaurants and bars within a 15 minute walk. The room was reasonably well done and with room to watch TV from a chair.

To be honest, we booked this knowing nothing about San Francisco and was a price based decision. Turned out to be a great decision. Location was perfect, walking distance to everything we wanted to do and staff were friendly. Room was clean and plenty of space. Continental breakfast was basic but all we needed. Would stay again.

To be honest, this was one of the cheapest options available when booking our hotel in San Fran so we decided to go for it and we are glad we did. The location of this hotel was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, such as Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Lombard Street, etc. plus we had the experience of being in China Town, which is such a fantastic experience. ​ The hotel itself was brilliant. The reception staff were polite and knowledgeable and couldn't have helped more. I didn't know what to expect, but it's certainly bigger in real life. The room was dated but was of good size and included your own bathroom. It came with what you would expect from a hotel, such as hairdryer, Iron and Ironing board, and TV. There was no tea or coffee making facility in the room, but there was a fridge. ​ The bed was comfy and I slept well each night. The room does have aircon and heating, so you can adjust the temperature to suit yourself, which was a nice bonus. If you do open your windows like we did on the first night, bear in mind it can get VERY noisy, even at 3am we had a few issues. ​ ​ The bathroom was big and came with a bath and over bath shower. I found the shower pressure to be good and the water was always hot. They do supply shower gel, shampoo and soap, just in case you forgot yours and the towels were changed daily.​ ​ The hotel has no bar or restaurant so bear in mind you need to leave the hotel for a drink or to have food. That said, breakfast was included in our rate and even though it was just a continental breakfast, it was perfect. The waffles are AMAZING!​ ​ Coffee and tea is served in polystyrene cups, so if you want your drink in a decent cup, I would suggest bringing your own mug or buy one from the local gift shop.​ ​ All in all we had a great time and would defiantly stay there again.

Well run hotel that is in a great location for Chinatown and is very well connected to transport to other attractions. It is within walking distance of three of the best bars in SF - the Saloon, Vesuvio and Specs! All well worth a visit. The area gets very busy at night but once inside the hotel you don't notice it. Our room was quiet, well proportioned, with all necessary amenities. It was very clean. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

Lovely hotel in heart of China town - friendly staff - clean rooms - rooms a bit small but adequate - use ear plugs for traffic at night! Easy access to everything. Felt like was in China. Next to ‘Italy’ also
