Location was the only pro for Soma Park In. First of all it was a motel not a hotel! Very similar to the ones that you see on movies where the fugitive parks his car in the middle of complex and hides from people or cleans his wounds.. A lot of homeless people were loitering in front of the motel...

SoMa has a cool 1960s "motor lodge" feel to it, with colorful diamonds on the facade and parking below the rooms. As noted by other reviewers, the proximity to Market St, Civic Center BART station & City Hall is convenient. All-Star Donuts across the street. The woman at Reception was charming & helpful. The room was clean, with a 1-cup...

As a location (in theory) there could not be a better one in san francisco. Problem is people not really recomandable living in the street all around. Im not afraid of anything but after 19,00 i would not recomend walking there around alone. Place is ok, good wifi , prices not so cheap

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
