The location can't be beat for exploring SF's Chinatown and "Little Italy" North Beach neighborhoods, plus there is a small parking lot reserved for hotel guests which I consider a gem to find! Yes, the room decor is a bit tired, but our room was clean and comfortable. If you're a light sleeper I would recommend reserving a room that... More

Been looking forward to y trip. Managed to get this hotel right in Chinatown. Arrived late in the evening and was given an upgrade to a junior suite. Nothing fancy, just that it has an additional sitting area with sofa which we didn't really used. Room was clean and decent. Luckily there were elevators so we didn't had to lug... More

A shabby remnant of what must have been a fabulous motel in its heyday, Royal Pacific's strength is in its location, in between Chinatown and the Italian District and walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square. Big rooms and quite clean, but very poor and intermittent wifi, which made daily itinerary planning a challenge.

Stayed at this hotel because the weekend we were there most hotels were asking over $900+ a night. Truthfully I couldn't fault this place, rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and parking was included in the price. Was able to walk to all the tourists spots San Francisco had to offer. Sadly will never return as I found the city... More

I stayed here as it was one of the recommended motels on TA´s San Francisco information page and it was very good. The key selling point is that it is relatively cheap (for San Francisco, it is still quite expensive compared to other cities) and that it has free parking. I had a room quite near the back so I...

Choose a room on the backside to avoid the noise from the street. Our room was large with a king bed, sofa, desk area, nice-sized closet, dresser, bath with tub. It was quite clean. Ice machine requires a quarter but ice is really complimentary and the desk clerk will give you a quarter. Close by are bus stops that will... More

Stayed just one night. Couldn't check in until 3:00pm had to wander around town for a couple of hours. Room was alright, for sure nothing fancy. Pics are the view from balcony which was fantastic, however A LOT of street noise. No AC but motel provides fans in all rooms which also helps muffle the street noise. Free parking!!! Only... More

We stayed here on our visit in San Francisco and really liked it. It is located right by china town and little italy surrounded by restaurants and in walking distance of many attractions! Perfect for a sightseeing trip to SF. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are very comfy. The free parking is also a blessing!

We are family of 4 with two kids of 16 and 12 - not very picky clients. I would definitely recommend that place to families like our. It is walking distance to Fisherman Wrath and all major locations. Place is clean - even it looks more like motel, but rooms inside pretty clean with free parking that makes that place... More

I stayed here with my family. The first night we saw 3 roaches crawling on the wall and ceiling. I was happy to find a hotel in Chinatown, but for $200 a night you would expect something clean. The room was not bad, a bit dated, but that didn't bother me. The old tv only had about 10 channels but... More

Staying in Chinatown

Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
