Location was handy to BART station and many shops, restaurants, sights etc. Easy check in.
Noisy as the windows were possibly not double glazed. Could hear street noise and drainpipe dripping
Location is amazing, right at the edge of union square. It's a small boutique style hotel, basic amenities but I was there for the location more than anything. Check-in very easy, and felt secure with the fob for the front door after hours. Leaflet with the details was great idea also !
There is heating in the room which you can turn off and only a fan which I'm sure in the summer is hard to control the room temperature. The duvet was very warm also! The instructions on how to switch from the bath to the shower were impossible to follow and I had to ask the cleaner the next morning how to use it. Perhaps a visual diagram would be better!
It's a great value for the money and the staff is really nice the evening sat anyways. The daytime staff is a bunch are busy bodies who have way too much time on their hands worrying about somebody who willed in their only transportation a bicycle.
They are not accommodating to their guest needs. A friend of mine head rented 2 rooms there for months ago and apparently had brought the bicycle into the building which they don't allow. They had never told S in the beginning that you can't have a bicycle but anyhow they told my friend not to come back I had no idea it was extended to me so when I extended my stay for 3 days and thought I had a Room they forced me to lead the hotel. I had never been asked to leave the hotel.
location is very good. shops around open on Sunday.
not clean, horrible noises during the night from the ventilation system, neighbouring room, and the old fridges, the heater was leaking water, too expensive for the value, no breakfast. I had to change the room for 4 nights of stay...
Location is great, and the reception staff are always nice and friendly.
It's a pity that the hotel seems to be not well-maintained.
