    My husband and I stayed here only one night (our anniversary) and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is situated between Union Square and Polk Gulch, both of which have plenty of shopping and restaurants. There is a cool bar next door, too. The staff was kind and helpful and the room was really cute. The bed and pillows were both comfortable. Our only complaint about the room was the shortage of horizontal space to put stuff in both the room and the bathroom. We had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs in the morning and enjoyed a no-frills, delicious meal. All in all, it was a good experience and we would stay there again.

  • A simple, good hotel, though walls are made of paper

    I spent 4 nights in the hotel, having booked it through the internet, relying mostly on the comments at this site. I guess, the comments were fairly accurate. It's conveniently located - a walking distance to Union Sq and Chinatown and several options to connect with the public transportation within walking distance too (you may have to change bus/metro to get to most places, though). The staff were fairly nice and welcoming. The rooms were clean and so was the bathroom, which is most important. The weather was kind of crazy for July and the heaters were not on, even though it was cold, so you should take that extra blanket to sleep. Finally, the walls where superthin, which is a problem when the cleaning ladies start at 8 AM sharp! Also, if you're thinking of having extra-curricular activities in the hotel room with your partner - think twice. ;)

    This hotel was a great deal. The room was very clean and just what we needed for our short stay. The location is in a very nice location. We walked to almost everything and took a cheap $8 cab ride to fishermans wharf. The staff was so friendly and took care of everything that we needed. The best deal they have is their free wine tasting EVERY NIGHT! They give you a bottomless wine glass and serve for about an hour. On our last night there, they gave us an entire bottle! I would strongly reccomend this hotel to anybody staying in the area.

  • For the price, this hotel is a terrific deal.

    While we found the room and bathroom to be rather small, the location and friendliness of the the staff more than made up for it. Each evening at 5:30pm, Tio (one of the staff members) plays songs he has written on the electric piano, in the lobby. While the music is playing, guests relax in the lobby enjoying a free wine-tasting . The location of the hotel is convenient to downtown, and a short cab ride away from fisherman's wharf. I would recommend this hotel to tourists who will spend the majority of their time out on the town. If you are going to spend the majority of your waking hours in the room, you might find it a bit small.
