Beautiful hotel! The staff was friendly and very helpful, always ready with a smile or, in the hotel doorman's case, a song :) Mr. Varun was sweet and he does take care of the guests to make sure they are enjoying their stay. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and help!

We were on a budget and chose Hotel Whitcomb because it was under $100. Parking is $38 dollars and the previous reviews regarding it being in the Tenderloin part of downtown were true. We were hoping that the area and upkeep of hotel were better than the reviews but after dark the area is pretty rough. The hotel staff themselves...

Me and my husband stayed In this hotel for 5 nights and we had a very pleasant stay. Varun helped us a lot and did his best to make our stay comfortable. The best part of this place is its prime location. Located very near to the Bart station (just right at the hotel's entrance) and 10 minutes walk to...

We stayed here in late April 2017 for a family holiday and while the hotel was ok it's just on the edge of a rougher part of town so plenty of beggars, drugs and the smell of urine just outside the front door. We had a Toyota 4 Runner SUV and were charged over $50 USD plus tax per night...

Nothing wrong being old and quaint. Upkeep however is poor and charming easily becomes run down. That is the general impression alas also the experience. The room however was fine. The bed was good. The bath old and the sink could not be closed. That said the staff was friendly and polite. The area however is appalling which drug dealings...

This is not a glitzy hotel. It is centrally located and within walking distance of many sites in town. The rooms (at least our room 2 doubles) are small. Rug is worn. Bathroom is CLEAN. Except for trash pickup on a Monday morning, the room was very quiet. FOR YOUR MONEY you are not going to find better. When I...

The hotel is at a good location, within 15 minutes walking distance from the city centre. Olga from the reception is very friendly, the other people without any smile or a nice word. In the middle of the night, at 4.45am, the toilet flush did not stop anymore, thus flushing continuously. It took the receptionist 30 minutes to find a...

Amazing Hotel and Staff. Both Kazi and Varun went out of their ways to make our trip enjoyable. It was our first time in San Fran and they were super helpful with guiding us and recommending places for us to visit! Safe and comfortable hotel!!

A good, comfortable hotel. Ideally located on Market Street with a Tram stop outside. Makes getting around very easy. The room was a fair size and the bed very comfortable. Not many plug sockets for charging phones etc and not many lights worked but other than that it was good. The restaurant at the hotel is good as is the...

We have stayed many places in SF along Market Street but none are as convenient and economical as the Whitcomb. It's right up the stairs from BART and Muni, across the street from major theatres and a 5-minute walk to the Opera House, Davies Hall, the Herbst and the Asia Art Museum. Yes, this is an old building but beautifully...

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.
