I have been a owner here for about 8 yrs and have never been unhappy. The Staff is super and they treat you well. I never get bored coming to San Francisco. I do manage to find something new on each trip and i also manage to walk up to 5 to 12 miles per day......

Excellent location, three cable lines in same block. The staff always attentive and helpful. The suite featured an ample bedroom, living room with a couch-bed, a full equipped kitchen and a spacious terrace. I just reduced my review 1 point because the bathroom was located in the bedroom instead of the living room.

This was a wonderful location, right on the cable car route. We enjoyed two rooms just one flight up. Best to come by shuttle or taxi and not have to pay for nightly parking fees. There was a fresh flower in a vase in our room and chocolates every night after they turned down our bed. So close to Chinatown... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
