Did not use the amenities so I cannot speak to them. The hotel makes great use of the limited space in SF, although the room was a comfortable size. The bedding was very comfortable and everything in the room (and hotel) was very modern and up to date. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Location of the hotel...

I was pleasantly surprised with this property. The lobby is small, so I wasn't sure what to expect from my room but the room was very modern and a good size. The bedding was very comfortable. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and very helpful. The location of the property is excellent as well, really close to the main...

First, the reason I'm giving only one star. The hotel charges a $25 "amenity fee" that isn't disclosed until you check in. Amenities are things most hotels include for free: wifi, coffee in the lobby, gym, and newspapers. As a consolation, Zelos gives you a $10 credit for hotel services (which is enough for test-tube sized vodka bottle from the...

This was our first stop at the beginning of our 3 week holiday in the states. We arrived early after 14 hours on a plane from Sydney so thankfully we had a very accommodating gentleman at the from desk who let us check in early. The room was on the 6th floor overlooking the main street up towards Union Square...

Staff were friendly and the hotel is clean and updated. Their gym is kinda small and they don't have room service other than breakfast, but those are minor issues. The location is excellent just off of market and very central.

At first glance this hotel is nice. Good amenities, nice big bed, good views, great location, but upon further review, this hotel is pretty crappy. The rooms are old and kind of dirty. I stayed here for work and was originally in a King room. There was a black office chair in the room and I pulled it out to...

Hi Jen, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It sounds like your visit to Hotel Zelos was a bit of a letdown and I'm incredibly sorry to hear about it. We pride ourselves on hosting a clean, modern environment with properly functioning amenities, so it's disappointing to read this was not the case. So...

Great stay but; description did not mention courtyard view means looking at the lower roof top restaurant. Due to a private party scheduled when we arrived; which included a DJ. The entire facility shook because of the volume. We suggest one asks if there are any private events scheduled using the restaurant. Other than that; it was a very pleasant...

I stayed at the Hotel Zelos from 17th April-23rd April. I used the hotels Valet service which was ridiculously priced, but I had no choice as it is contracted out to a 3rd party company.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
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.
