Just what we wanted

When the taxi was driving to the hotel my first thought was "what have I booked" We did pass some homeless people on the way but when we got there we found it was a wonderful location. Close enough to Union Square and the shops we wanted to visit was within walking distance. We found places to eat close by and were safe walking at night. 'The staff on arrival were so friendly Rebecca who booked us in and William as concierge was great so helpful. Its not the ritz but had character and charm. We had a double room with bathroom with the only drawback nowhere to sit but definitely value for money. Would highly recommend it for average traveller who is down to earth.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

This hotel is located at Geary st. There is a bus no 38 that goes all the way to point lobos where you can see magnificent view of pacific ocean and the historical cliff house. Great location. Also, if you want to go to Best Buy, the bus also goes there.

Good value for money and close

Good value for money and close access to Union Square. Easy access to public transport etc. Only problem being the antiquated lift which broke down two days out of our stay of three. Friendly and helpful staff.

Small boutique hotel but it was

Small boutique hotel but it was exactly what we were looking for. It was in a fairly good location....close walking distance to Union Square. Staff were helpful with travel advice for around the city which we took advantage of.
