This hotel needs a little TLC and a refurb in the not too distant future. There were some helpful staff in the morning but the checkin undertaken by the evening staff member left a lot to be desired and bordered on being rude after a LONG fight. The twin room was tiny and the sliding door into the bathroom/restroom was... More

If your looking for a modern hotel then look else where, and if you stayed here and was disappointed then you missed the point. This hotel is charming and in a time warp, but thats a good thing. I loved the quaint lifts and wood panelling ..I half expected to bump into Karl Malden from the 'The Streets Of San... More

We were here for our honeymoon. The hotel is in a central position and the rooms are small but clean. the staff is prepared and the pub next the hotel is the best. I loved this hotel and I hope to return soon.

I would not have booked this hotel myself however it was part of a cruise package which included this hotel so hopefully it will be OK??. On arrival we were really concerned as it smelt very strange and looked like it was stuck in a time warp however I had checked trip advisor and asked for a front facing room... More

Ok, let's get something straight from the get go: San Francisco is a fabulous but fiercely expensive little city. This ultimately impacts the cost of accommodation, and to find a decent hotel at a reasonable rate you have to monitor prices hard. Or you substitute comfort for location, such is the case at the Beresford. This hotel is conveniently located... More

Hotel Beresford has a fantastic location, being just a block from Union Square. The rooms were clean, though rather old. Bed was fine, and the room was quite save for some kind of air conditioning unit just outside. In the room I had the window was old fashioned and did not completely close, which made me nervous leaving my bags... More

It is an old hotel that has so much charm. The staff were all very pleasant and the elevator was a treat. We stayed 4 nights on the 5th floor, in a comfortable queen bed. Our room was quite small and the bathroom even smaller. There were few electrical outlets. I had no issues with plumbing, water temperature/pressure or lack... More
