Location is about the only up side to this place. Old squeaky floors, you can hear people walking at all hours of the night, paper thin walls, no microwave, internet never works, you'll be lucky if a page loads in 10 minutes (not exaggerating). Shower was like a water blaster with no pressure control. Key card stopped working twice during...

We stayed 2 days at this location on our recent trip. The Hotel is clean, rooms are relatively small but no sharing bathroom (many places in SF don't have private bathrooms) and the location is good. Now the things that were not so great is (of course) no parking so be prepared to pay for the valet depending on the...

Room must have been upgraded from previous reviews. Had refridge, flat screen tv, working complimentary wifi and comfortable bed. Liked the room very much - try to get on the 4th floor as it allows u to see SF skyline. Great low price for room in a convenient location south of market. No complaints just that parking charges were excessive...

This hotel is fine if you're low maintenance. Dated and hallways are scuffed up but room and bathroom were clean. The staff were nice and helpful. Feels like a European hostel and we were fine as we knew we were saving money. There is a heating unit in the room but no AC. We walked to the fishermans wharf which...

I was nervous about this stay since there were mixed reviews. Overall, the Inn met our needs and I have no complaints. The room and hotel were clean, but a little worn. There is no A/C but this wasn't a problem with the cool bay breezes. As mentioned by others, there is some noise from the bar downstairs, but not...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
