TERRIBLE AND RUDE. Place smells and full of vermin. Customer service is non-existent. Front desk and management basically tells guests to go to hell. I can not emphasize enough how bad of ripoff this place is.

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,
