If you need to spread out in a hotel room, look elsewhere. If you need what my husband and I needed (a welcoming, inexpensive, centrally-located space to relax between adventures), then this is the place. Because we wanted The Haight to be our "home base" for exploring the city, this location couldn't be beat. If you were to want to...

This hotel is in a great location, close to various bus stops that connect you to BART or MUNI. There are some great restaurants within walking distance with a cool Italian place right next door and walking distance from the Haight and Ashbury district as well as Buena Vista Park. The hotel itself was super clean and the staff was...

Stayed one night here. Didn't get a wink of sleep. The streetside room was a very noisy and as soon as the sun poked up the blinds in the room aren't black out blinds so the sun blazes through the shades. Great location for food and entertainment, nice clean rooms. Small but for the price it was a nice place....

The Metro is my home from home when I visit San Francisco. The whole staff is so nice. The location is perfect, Haight street two blocks away. The Painted Ladies a 10 minute walk away. The bus stops on the same block near the hotel. Places to eat all over the area. This is my 3rd stay at this hotel,...

This hotel was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay while visiting our son who lived 2 blocks away. We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of a longer trip in California. Since the next leg of our trip was more expensive and luxurious, we were looking for a place to sleep and not too many frills....

Although myself and my partner only stayed one night, it was amazing. The staff was so friendly and hospitable. From the moment you walk in it feels so inviting and cozy. Although parking was a bit of a hassle we were able to snag the closest parking meter so that really wasn't an issue, especially since the city practically begs...

Where shall I start? I stayed for 5 days in one of the smaller rooms on my last trip to SF, and because of that, I had the chance to meet every one of the staff.

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the Metro Hotel! However, parking was a HUGE issue. We had to drive a few blocks away and pay to park overnight at the DMV. It's either that, or circle around the block 184937 times hoping that someone will give up their street parking spot. Luckily the neighborhood is very walkable so...

The Metro Hotel is a gem of a place to stay in Lower Haight. It's a boutique hotel that's clean, convenient and affordable! The hotel staff is delightful and helpful. And the location is great for running in Golden Gate Park, good restaurants, coffee shops, nearby shopping and it's easy to get downtown or to other neighborhoods. I've stayed there...

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
