Very small rooms. In the room was the bed and the room was fully. Unfortunately were the walls from the paper. Any movement in other rooms was to be heard. If a door to the bed wobbled like a earthquake. The breakfast was also not the best. However, we were only to sleep and shower in the hotel. And the location makes 80% of the flaws way. The hotel is in the way of location really can't be beat. Felt 5 metres from the Union Square and in front of the door the Cable Cars. Tip: on Union Square there ... is a parking garage 3 6 $parking on the day. This is less than what the hotel requires. And you get the car within easy reach. The hotel parking the car somewhere driven there and one must 20 minutes wait, if one needs something to you car you leave. read hotel review

    The hotel will give my a continental breakfast (toast, jam, cereal, coffee, tea, milk...). For the start to the day more than enough!

    Room was quite small, since we only used it to sleep, it was enough! A safe is only at the front desk available. We had a room to the back of the hotel and therefore, we had to sleep our peace! A tv was available in the room.

    The rooms were cleaned daily and the towels were changed. Also nice reception at check-in.

    The famous objects of interest (pier, Alcatraz, coit tower...) Can be reached on foot in approximately 20-25 minutes or simply cozy with the cable car the as mentioned above some mediocre shopping options near the hotel. Shopping available directly at the hotel (H&M, skeatcher, levi's, etc.). One block away is more business like Nike, Puma, etc.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in without any problems. Cleaning of the room was done well, apart from the 3. day, where the service, our room was forgotten, and it was not cleaned. Foreign language skills were not found.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The breakfast was including, but very 'american' : sweet cereal, bagels, toast, at least some fresh fruit and 3 kinds of coffee. The cutlery, plates, cups and cups were everything from plastics. As well as the packaging of jam, butter, honey and so on. In disposable packaging. It was however everything was present in sufficient quantity.

Hotel in a great location, Union Square just round the corner. Our room was not large but spotlessly clean. Breakfast is no highlight. Toast, butter, jams, coffee/tea, cereal, milk and oranges (no cheese, no sausage, no eggs). Everything of course in that styrofoam plates and plastic cutlery. Directly opposite the hotel is restaurant Bellini. There, there are very good breakfast and more (not very cheap). In the room is no safety deposit box, however at the front desk there are the possibility, valuables free deposit. In may we will stay here again. read hotel review
