This place is old, but well maintained and pretty clean! There are only 48 rooms each with a theme associated with a notable celebrity. I stayed in the Isadora Duncan room. It was green. Yeah a lot of shades of green. The room was clean and there's a refrigerator that would go on and off during the night. There's free... More

The room and furniture looks old but the room itself was clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was only sandwich in the box and tasteless. The hotel is good to reach the airport because the airport bus stop was nearby. The hotel also within walking distance to union square. There were a lot of homeless in the area but... More

Hotel room and common areas were clean and well maintained. Check in and out service was OK; it felt like the person was a little overwhelmed. Hotel location was a bit questionable. I would not be comfortable walking around alone at night. Garage parking was available, however, there was an additional charge for this.

Great hotel, we really enjoyed our stay here. It is a short walk to downtown, where there is a great mix of shops and restaurants. Each room has a personalised feel, named after a famous San Franciscan, with a type-written message of their legacy. The rooms were cosy warm in late September when the temperature really dropped in the evening.... More

We had a two Nights stay. Service was attentive and friendly. The room was quite spacious and nicely furnished and clean. Breakfast is only a snack, not a Buffet. But it was ok for us. The Place is good to reach with the BART-Train from the Airport. Only two blocks to Walk from the BART-Station "Civic-Center".

Stayed here for 3 nights , rooms quite large ,clean,nice big comfy bed, As others have said breakfast not the best but ties you over till you can get something else. Staff friendly, felt OK in day walking about but was a bit worrying at night in this part of the neighbourhood.

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.
