Diamond in the rough area

Hotel Bijou is a boutique type hotel which is in a borderline area with many homeless people and a large amount of traffic noise. Reception staff is casual and very friendly. Rooms are spotless and economically but nicely decorated and super clean. Inside rooms will be quieter but will have no view. Hotel has a movie theatre which show 2 movies each day. Elevator works slowly and makes occasional odd noises. This hotel is perfect for the adventurous traveller that wants to stay near Union Sq at a reasonable rate.

Great place in a central location

You don't get much more central than this! You're right next to Union Square and a BART station and you're within walking distance of everything else. The room was clean and comfortable and exceeded my expectations. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating and overall, this was a very good hotel experience.

Not clean!

We reserve this hotel using discount code. It is expensive for what you get from it! Everything is very dated and almost falling apart. The room that we received was not clean and we asked to change it. It was very noisy too. They let us change the room, but second room was not much better than the first one. We stayed just because we didn't want to spend time on fighting with the staff to get our money back and looking for another place, because we only had few days to see the city. The area is full of homeless people. Not very pleasant as well. I wouldn't stay in this place again and wouldn't recommend it.

Not what we expected

Check in was humorous, the staff provided us with all we needed to know for helping us get about the next day. The d├ęcor looks a little drab and it is in need of refurbishment throughout. The room was smaller than anticipated and facilities limited, we must have read the wrong review page previously... A big plus it close to transport and shops which made up for the annoying other things. So getting to the cable car was easy (5 minutes) . Would I stay again? the answer is no, this is not a criticism of the hotel I wouldn't choose a 2* hotel as normal practice. If your travelling on a budget and there was only 2 of you this would most probably suit.

Great location

Great location in terms of being close to everything. Kind of in the ghetto, but as long as you're careful you should be fine.

If you're going to visit Chinatown and fishermans wharf a lot. Take the cable cars! & get the muni bus pass. Will save you money since its 6.00 a ride one way!!
