Great location - small rooms

The location of the hotel is great and pretty close to everything. Unfortunately tho, the building and the rooms are pretty small.

Great Value

The hotel was very basic, but completely clean and contained all the essentials. Staff was polite and helpful. Great location -- walking distance to all of Union Square, easy access to Muni and BART. Would absolutely stay there again.

Clean, quiet and convenient

The hotel is in a great location in the city, close to major transportation and attractions and right in front of the Chinatown gate. The location is very convenient and the neighborhood is clean and quiet at night. The room was clean and comfortable with basic amenities, good enough for us who don't have a lot of needs. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we felt at ease staying at this hotel. We highly recommend this hotel for a comfortable and affordable stay in San Francisco.

Beautiful City, Beautiful Hotel

Like everybody seems to say, the location is perfect. The hotel staff are truly helpful and know the area well. The room I was in was very comfortable, had charming ambiance, was very clean, and was very quiet. I was a little nervous when I found out the room had no air-conditioning; however, there was absolutely no need for it, although it was September (typically the warmest month of the year). When I visit San Francisco again I will DEFINITELY stay at the Baldwin Hotel again!

Please know and / or remember that there is a big difference between the Richmond District (one of the districts in San Francisco) and the city of Richmond (on the other side of San Francisco Bay).

Loved it.

We were not in the room a lot. Although, it was great when we were. We loved the claw foot bathtub, and the towel animals waiting for us everyday when we got back from exploring the city. Each day they were different. It was very clean, and they lock the front door after 9PM for no risk of random people in the lobby. There is always someone friendly at the front desk, and it was in a great part of town. Also, check out the convenience shop around the corner of Starbuck's. The man in there is very nice. We made friends. This hotel made for an excellent vacation experience. I gave the amenities a 3 because I love hot tubs, and one would have been amazing after walking the hilly streets.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

We took the bus to Baker's beach. There is a picnic area with trees behind it at the main entrance. Explore in the trees. We found the most beautiful view from up in a tree!! It looked like a little hole for animals to run in. Turns out there were a few empty bottles and leftovers of previous visitors. Climb the mangled branches and you get a view of the beach and the Golden Gate Bridge from above. Absolutely gorgeous.
