Good location beside Union Square do you have the trams or buses nearby. The room itself was basic, two beds and a bathroom, no aircon so would not be ideal if it had been warm, but San Francisco is much cooler, it did have a radiator but was not switched 0on while we were there. The lift works fine, if your a light sleeper, ask for a room away from it because you can hear light dings from it, although it never bothered us. The only thing that really bothered me was the smell. It was either from nearby restaurant or just the age of the hotel but in the corridor and on the stairs it was very sickening. the room itself did not smell bad so at least one you left the hotel or entered y9our room you cold not smell it. I think for the condition it is over priced but given that San Francisco is an expensive city it is probably affordable in regards to what you would pay for a higher class hotel.
