Great view to Golden Gate at top level

  • July 2014
Very big hotel. Many small bars and cafe around there. Supermarket also nearby. Very good transportation connections (cable-car, buses). Friendly staff and concierge. Front desk managed everything in short time even at main-checkout-time. Great view to Golden Gate Bridge and Bay from the top level. Recommend strongly to spend a few bucks more and stay in upper levels. Also view from pool is interesting. Good hotel - would stay there again at next visit to San Francisco. read hotel review

    Really okay in regards to the size, 2 large beds in the double room, television was there, desk, coffee machine, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, small bathtub with shower inside, large mirror in the bathroom, big enough

    We received a kind welcome at the front desk, questions were answered, they spoke English, room cleaning was good, nothing to complain about, the hotel itself is a little older, you cannot expect much from here

  • Location

    The hotel was outside of the center, but there is a cable car nearby and the bus stop is directly in front of the door, it could not be better, and driving back and forth for 2 dollars for 3 hours is ideal… a lot of restaurants, cafes, supermarkets nearby, it is a drive to the airport, but with a shuttle it is less expensive than a taxi and works well

+ good location. Right by the terminus of the cable car california line. Depending on the room partly great view of the skyline of sf. - parking was very expensive (rd. American Dollar 45,- per day). Room was a little noisy (street noise), but for sf probably normal. read hotel review
