Great San Francisco location

We rode Amtrak from Chicago to San Francisco and took the Amtrak bus to Shopping Center. It was a short walk to the hotel, just by the Chinatown gate. We walked everywhere. The hotel is basic, but clean and comfortable.

good location

The hotel is very well located. It is close to the entrance to Chinatown (2 minute walk?). It is also close to an area with many designer stores. The BART (metro) station is perhaps a 7-10 minute walk away. There is a bus station close by (1 block away) with buses that take you to and from the wharf area (to visit Alcatraz, Bay boat excursions, seafood restaurants, etc.) The hotel is some old and faded but well kept, clean, and with a very helpful staff.

Excellent location, friendly staff

Great location, clean room and facilities. The only negatives were the lack of air conditioning as it tended to get a bit warm in the room, but not unbearably so, and the noise from the street which could disturb light sleepers. Centrally located and very close to public transportation, this hotel was a good deal!

convenient and satisfactory

Nothing special, a little dated, but clean, quiet, and well situated. This is a good value hotel for short stays in San Francisco. Probably more suited for the budget business traveler than tourists, but would still be good for that use also. I plan on returning here.

Uummmm if you like old crusty hotels with no A/C, windows with no screens

Very old hotel. Smells like cheese and mice when you first walk in. The staff is very nice. But I'll be honest, the beds suck, it dosent feel clean at all, it's very old, no A/C, a water radiator that's always on, and windows with no screens. Parking is a mess.
