Great hotel. Small, more on the spartan side but are you spending lots of time in your hotel? I didn't. One block from the cable car turnaround, close to lots of restaurants and attractions. Clean, right next to a Walgreens that also has food. You will not go wrong here. Friendl

This hotel is close to all, one block to Union Square, and the Powell Street cable car runs right in front of the hotel.. We had a room with private bath. Everything was updated. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would stay here again.

Hello. How are you? We are fine. Just want to know. Do you have parking of your hotel or no parking? Please let me know anytime. Thank you
Hotel does not provide any parking but this being San Francisco, there are parking lots all around the area. Rates run from $20-30 a night and some lots have different in and out criteria.

I was wondering what is check out time and is there bag storage? thanks Andrew
We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

hi i noticed with a lot of reviews it is saying shared bathroom can you definitely get your own? and also is there laundry facilities here thank you
I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra

"Ensuite bathrooms are available, be aware"
"Ask for a private bath"
"Book early and ask for a better Deluxe room. You'll need ear plugs! Young staff is adequate but could be friendlier."
"Ask for a room that does not face out to Powell to minimize the lights in the room from the nightlife."
