San Francisco was mine and my friends last stop on a 14 day road trip around the center of California - The Metro Hotel was delicately chosen a year prior after reading several reviews and making sure it was in a good location. We were SO pleasantly surprised!! The front desk was SO helpful, it was so clean and comfortable,...

What a little gem the Metro is! It's within walking distance to Haight/Ashbury and GG Park. We followed the advice of another Tripadvisor user and stayed in a room at the back of the hotel, which was said to be quieter than the rooms on the front of the hotel. There is a restaraunt next door that uses the patio...

We grabbed a room here for a one night stay because all of out other favorite places were booked. What a great surprise! For under $150 we had our own little studio apartment with a private entrance. I almost don't want to review it, because I want to keep it all to myself. We arrived late afternoon on Sunday and...

When you stay in San Francisco, your choices are $300-$500. This family owned and operated hotel is not in that price range. It's not fancy, but for a trip to the city, where you are spending your time enjoying the sights and phenomenal restaurants, this is where you sleep and shower. For longer stays, our room was appointed with a...

This was a terrific price for a hotel in SF. You're on the fringe of Haight-Ashbury (actually in Lower Haight) and within thirty minutes you can be in Hayes Valley. (Although I discovered the bus system, and it made life much easier -- taxis are not that easy to get....) You are very close to Alamo Square park, where you...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed our stay. Great location in the Lower Haight and close to lots of good bars and restaurants and of course Haight/Ashbury. The room was great, nicely decorated and clean and bright. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable and I would definitely recommend this place to...

Quirky little place great to get the real feel of San Francisco. Great little court yard next to great pizza shop. Very helpful staff who are local. Got suggestions from staff where to eat and had great meals. Room bed good. Yes a fridge in the room would be good.

I love the little garden oasis, and the employees were nice. The room was spacy and warm. I think that they should put fridges in each room, because we did not have one and we did a lot of walking so it would be great if we could keep the drinks cold. The cleaning was great, although our room was...

Stayed here for four nights in early April and had a great time. The rooms are a little small, but the location is great, right in the heart of SF, so you feel like a native. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the hotel has free wifi, and has great access to local restaurants and cafes etc. Very well priced...

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.
