I got attacked by bed bugs here on January 13th 2020. HORRIBLE. I got at least 15 bites and now I'm scared I brought them back into my apartment all the way in the east coast. Not worth it to save a few bucks at a cheaper hotel in San Francisco.

If it wasnt for trip advisor I would not have booked a room there. Regular rates are $180/ night Nearest parking is $35 The upside was it's close to the bart so if you have time you can park farther away and take the bart to where you wanna go. They need to buzz you in which is good security practice, TA stated it was pet friendly and served complimentary breakfast. We were asked to sign a paper saying we had no pets and they never told us what time was breakfast. Granted we didn't ask but this is something that's always offered upfront in other hotels so I can't verify if they had breakfast or not. We were walking distance from market street and the trolleys/buses are not too expensive you can take them anywhere. Overall average experience, not great not bad but I highly suggest making sure you get a deal because it's definately not $180 worth.

Minna Hotel is in a convenient location (walking distance) near the train and tram stops. I was greeted by friendly staff, who also said hi and helpful when asking regarding tourist info. Free WIFI, daily continental breakfast. Room was clean but dated. However it did have a mini fridge and microwave. There is shared bathrooms which i thought may cause a concern. However there is many on the level that i stayed on and it was never an issue. There is no cooling in the rooms so you will need to ask for a fan. Rooms were quiet, but very small. There are several meal options very close. The pizza restaurant i can vouch for as being very good. Also only a couple of minutes walk to the main shopping area. Yes it is in a dodgy area, but not too much of a concern. You get what you pay for also

We stayed in this hotel last week the staff are amazing but the hotel is basic but clean could be very noise at times the street which the hotel is on if full of homeless people and is quite intimateding although the homeless don't bother you the hotel advises you to walk around the block to avoid them. The hotel offers a good selection for breakfast. The hotel is basic but you get what you pay for

Let's start with the good. The desk staff are willing and very helpful. Good, given that their work is cut out for them dealing with disillusioned customers. Also the continental European breakfast offering is perfectly OK. It all has the feel of a youth hostel. Now the not so good. The rooms are tiny and stifling hot (no air con). The carpets need a clean. The corridors are very noisy thru the night. But perhaps worst of all, this is a bad neighborhood. Vagrants, druggies and mutterings of 'intruders' as we passed folks on the street. We had to take a cab back each night to stay safe. Cheap accommodation for a good reason.
