We only stayed here one night and it served that purpose well. The hotel is old fashioned and the lobby area is very cute. The rooms were small and ours was only shared bathroom, these were very clean and you had a sink in your room. The bed was very small. The best part of the hotel was the location...

I had a private room/ the bathroom and showers are common and are located at the end of the hall. Hotel wad clean and comfortable and staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just coffee and donuts wish they had other options. Great location in SOMA.

We were allocated this hotel via a tour operator's multi trip holiday in the US and came to the Aida as our last stop in San Fransisco. Be aware that a standard room is a 1970's version of "standard" in that it does not include a toilet or bathroom and that these are shared "facilities" down the corridor. Since I...

If you get the hotel Cortez reference, chances are you will find this place amazing. The more enthusiastic an AHS fan, the happier you will be. For everyone else, this is the most BASIC hotel you'll get in San Francisco. The beds are nice and springy ,providing real bounce, with bare bones rooms that have been a long long time...

While the location, right on Market Street in the center of downtown, can't be beat, this is about as no-frills of a hotel as you can find. Unfortunately, the better part of Market Street is to the east of there, but it's just a short walk, bus or streetcar ride, as there is a lot of public transportation available both...

I didn't choose 'the Aida, because of price only.... I do travel a lot and I simply don't like the Marriotts and Hiltons of this world. They're boring and overpriced. Hotels like the Aida have charisma and personality. It's one of the oldest buildings in San Francisco right on the Market Street. This was my 4th stay in this place....

Aida Plaza is a very basic (perhaps two-star) hotel right in the heart of Market street, by the entrance to the Civic Center BART station (meaning you'll reach the airport in 25 minutes). There's a CVS right next to the hotel. The location is definitely this hotel's strongest pro. Otherwise, expect modest accommodations (not all rooms have en-suite bathrooms so...

Was in this hotel during the business trip this autumn. I had not the best impression from the hotel. It looks like this building had better times 50 years ago. Now it looks like piece of old American West. Funny part was breakfast, which consisted of donuts and big can of coffee for all hotel visitors. Elevator is not fastest...

Stayed at this hotel for one night towards the end of September. Hotel management wanted to edit our review. In fact, this hotel should have been closed down by health inspectors years ago. It is not even value for money as you can find better accommodation to stay in San Francisco at a cheaper price. This hotel is also a...

I was pleased the room was clean, towels and linens clean. A funky old hotel and affordable. I would stay again. There shower and bathroom was down the hall but there was a sink in the room. I found it to be tolerable.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
