The hotel itself is situated 1 minutes walk to Market Street where most of the shopping is located the convenience itself is a plus. The staff is really fantastic they give guest the feel of home especially for a first time guest of the city their service in my opinion surpass the 5 stars hotel.
As to safety the area in general there are a lot of homeless people asking for money and cigarette you just have to be polite and reject them no need to be mean or aggressive towards them mind you there is also 5 star hotel in the same area but the hotel staff really do their part by not letting non guest to enter the hotel which includes the use of their toilets. I would strongly advice family visitors do not let their children roam about in the nights.
If you need a cab let the front desk know so that they get their regular/trusted cab drivers to service you but as most of the things are nearby the only time you may need the cab is to the airport.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very close to Union Square and some great restaurants. Close to a target and AMC theatre. The rooms were small and of course old but most things were updated. It was fine for our needs.
For a place rated 2.5 stars I was most impressed. The staff was super nice and helpful and told me all about what was going on in San Fran that day. The room was clean and smelled fresh even though the building is quite old it didn't feel musty like a lot of old places. The air conditioning worked and they even let me check in early which was awesome.
This is a favorite hotel given its location, convenience, cleanliness and friendly staff. The rooms are small but that is to be expected in central SF. Everything met my expectations at a reasonable price.
Very nice hotel. I loved that it was close to all the sights, the beach, shopping, and the bay. It liked the view from the hotel and the front door was locked at night for security. I got to see many sight. The room was confortable and the staff was very helpful. I traveled with family members and they really enjoyed the stay at this hotel. The hotel was in a very good location, which made everything very accessive, even places to eat and interainment. I enjoyed my stay
The area was pretty ghetto but on the flip side it made the hotel feel life our litte safe haven. The staff is nice and the room was okay. The shower was dandy. Don't rely on the breakfast. It's just pastries in plastic wrappers and coffee. If you are a fancy pantsy don't go there. But if you're chill like us and don't need a lot to enjoy yourself well you're good.

Great location. Close to subway, easy from airport by BART as just over a block to walk from the station. Especially with bags! Close to the hub of shopping in San Fran and also public transport, cable cars etc. Great room, very comfortable, clean and spacious. Beds comfortable too.
