The hotel itself is situated 1 minutes walk to Market Street where most of the shopping is located the convenience itself is a plus. The staff is really fantastic they give guest the feel of home especially for a first time guest of the city their service in my opinion surpass the 5 stars hotel.
As to safety the area in general there are a lot of homeless people asking for money and cigarette you just have to be polite and reject them no need to be mean or aggressive towards them mind you there is also 5 star hotel in the same area but the hotel staff really do their part by not letting non guest to enter the hotel which includes the use of their toilets. I would strongly advice family visitors do not let their children roam about in the nights.
If you need a cab let the front desk know so that they get their regular/trusted cab drivers to service you but as most of the things are nearby the only time you may need the cab is to the airport.
Owner was very friendly and gave us all sorts of tips, advice, maps.
Within walking distance of all main attractions.
Bus stop around the corner takes you to fishermans whalf for $2.25.
Also around the corner from cable car stop.
Free car parking.

Very powerful shower.

Felt like in a safe neighbourhood.
Aircon very old. We couldnt get it to work properly. So slept with window open but extremely noisy outside with traffic and sirens.
Had a wonderful stay. Would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.
This is a favorite hotel given its location, convenience, cleanliness and friendly staff. The rooms are small but that is to be expected in central SF. Everything met my expectations at a reasonable price.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very close to Union Square and some great restaurants. Close to a target and AMC theatre. The rooms were small and of course old but most things were updated. It was fine for our needs.
Located right in the heart of san fran surrounded by gorgeous victorian architecture.staff very nice,helpful and interested in our stay.bathroom and toilet very clean but these had to be shared.all in all with free breakfast and coffee machine access all day i thought it was pretty good value for money.tks Roshni!!
