the space is just enough for two paople, however I was told tha the room has iron but I was looking for it and there was none. I also feel that there are bed bags because I kept scratching almost the whole night. The temperature inside the room is good. We were hoping that there are at least light meals...

We booked this hotel through the blind booking process in Travelocity. We were glad to see that the reviews were not terrible once we found out the name of the hotel. As many others said the rooms are tiny, the bathrooms (private bathrooms) have been renovated and the beds are really uncomfortable, but the location is great and you have...

With this price you can get better location, better room, and much better overall experience. The elevator is very strange and old, the location is good is the middle of China town, but it is on top of a small hill, so it needs more efforts. Small room, cleanness is average, and the staff were OK.

Purchased a vacation package on Priceline and this was the hotel that it chose. Only the bare necessities, i.e. bed, sink, shower and TV. I knew what to expect based on the reviews so it helped to not come with expectations. Actually it's better if you first view it in the daylight...seriously. Location is great - sandwiched between the financial...

Expectations, expectations. We were told that San Francisco hotel rooms are rather small. This comes with no exception. If you are just looking for a place to stay with the day constantly outside, this hotel is rather comfortable and also in a really prized location in Chinatown. Nothing extraordinary happened but we did have a very good night's rest.

We stayed here for the evening of the Chinese New Year's Parade. You definitely get what you pay for. It's not the Ritz-Carlton, but it was only $88 and $25 for parking. That's a great deal, for a great location. The room was small, but clean enough. We had 2 'twin' beds and roll-in for our 19 year old daughter....

Firstly the pictures on the site may have been photo shopped as when you click on the Location tab of their website it shows the hotel with a tram car out side. this is not the case, there is no tram stop on the street and none pass through it. However about 5 or 6 minutes walk there is one...

I stayed here for a week on a business trip and I changed rooms four times. The first time I changed because they offered me a queen size bed instead of two single beds. But the heater in that room (410 I think it was) woke me up in the early morning when it let out steam, which produced a...

If you're looking to head to San Francisco and spend 70 bucks a night to feel like you have been wrongfully imprisoned in chateau d'if then this is the hotel for you. Aside from the fact that the rooms are cartoonishly small and stink of bleach, there is no A/C and even in winter, when my wife and I went,...
