Hotel Rex San Francisco
Ranked #66 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 September 2017

Friendly staff. The hotel was dated but this went with the style of the hotel. The room was clean and a decent size (though not overly spacious). It was quite hot in the room but otherwise it was a decent hotel with a good space downstairs to relax with a drink in the evening or a cup of tea in the morning.

Really convenient location. There is a bar cost added in that we didn't use, it was a family trip. Seemed to be there as a way to increase bar visits or to increase revenue. The second hotel we stayed at did the same thing..must be a going thing for the region. Very convenient to Union Square and public transportation pick up. Much enjoyed visit!

The hotel is well located in the heart of San Francisco, easily accessible and "close to everything". The staff is nice and friendly and is eager to help with any request.
It should be noted that it requires a modernization to be able to reach modern standards, especially where windows are concerned which really don't block any noise from the outside.

Room Tip: For a quiet room ask a room that doesn't face Sutter street

Room was smelly and dark
Bathroom was shocking was not that clean
Furniture was of poor quality with the whole hotel
Was really surprised at how horrible the rooms were...no point in complaining as too many things wrong

We stayed here for three nights whilst exploring San Francisco and found it to be a great boutique hotel. Service was really friendly and the overall decor was very stylish with proper artwork on the walls. Some of the rooms are small but well furnished and remarkably quiet for a city centre hotel.

Location wise it is only five min walk to Union Square and also to the Powell-Hyde cable car if you want to go up to Fishermans Wharf. The only thing that lets it down is the $55.86 valet parking charge per day, $49 plus $6.86 tax, which is eye watering. Makes London look cheap. There are other options nearby ranging from $30 to $40 per day so I would seek them out rather than paying the valet fee and wince afterwards as we did.
