This hotel was clean and tidy, the room was a good size. The bathroom was very small but not a major problem, hot water all the time and was very clean!. Our beds were comfy and super clean as well. There was a really bad smell of weed in the hall way and it was worse in the afternoon, you...

Room is great and the staff are very friendly and helpful. This is my second stay at the Hotel Whitcomb and as a frequent business traveler to San Francisco I will certainly stay here again. I have also recommended the hotel to my other out of town colleagues.

Stayed here for two nights. Booked through Priceline Express Deals at $109 USD/night (taxes included) for a Saturday and $99.45 USD/night (taxes included) for Sunday evening. Was originally booked into a petite room and was advised of this on check-in but was upgraded to a 2-bed room (#321). Room was comfortable with very high ceilings, large closet w/ safe and...

We stayed here for two nights and were quite happy with our room which was clean and quiet. The old hotel is lovely and quaint--we felt quite safe walking in the area during the day and early evening. Location is great in terms of catching the muni to go different places around the City. We would stay here again.

We stayed in the Hotel Whitcomb at the end of a month in the US. The hotel looks nice when you go in but the main problem is the location. This is not a suitable hotel for families especially those with young children. The location and the issue of homelessness outside it's doors is very distressing. We saw people dealing...

Nice hotel but decor is dated - pipes rattled in room 267 when the guests in next door room were showering. They rattled so bad that I thought it was an earthquake! Initially I was in room 287 and this room was so noisy - you could hear everything from next door room - and i mean everything. Was moved...

I just stayed one night, so I can't evaluate it accurately. Rooms are clean, decent amenities and reasonable toilets. The concierge (I don't remember his name, maybe Bart) is very kind and helpful, thank you! This hotel is well located. Close to the cable car stop and many shops and restaurants. The central region doesn't seem very safe to walk...

This was the first hotel we stayed at out of six whilst travelling in America, when we arrived i immediately felt abit dubious.

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.
