Good location is one of the advantage . Need to change carpet shampoo. Accomodating staff. Not as bad as i expected it to be when I read the other reviews. Hope they invest on new beds coz it makes squeaky sound / hard to sleep.

The location of the hotel is right next to the entrance to Chinatown. We were able to park our rental car and walk all around. Tons of shopping from big name stores to less expensive store fronts. You can get really great deal in the chinatonwn stores. Rooms were on the smaller size and the walls were very thin. Service...

If you plan on staying in your hotel while in San Francisco then this may not be the place for you but if you need a safe, clean room right in the heart of the city I would recommend the Astoria. This is a very simple hotel but it was reasonably clean and the staff was courteous, I expected much...

We have stayed here for the 2 worst nights of our trip. We woke up covered in bedbugs' bites. The hotel maybe cheap but it's not worth it. We arrived and had to wait half an hour to get checked-in the receptionist was on the phone ignoring us completely. STAY AWAY.

I don't remember why I liked this place after our first stay, but after our last stay, I will never stay here again. Our main reason for staying here was its location - we love Chinatown. Upon reserving my room, I opted for the room that cost $10 more for the night; this was for the breakfast. There was 2...

A friend and I made a hastily planned trip to SF last spring. We were expecting to stay at nearby hotel (I can’t remember which) based on a recommendation from a co-worker, but when we arrived they turned out to have no vacancy (and we didn’t have a reservation). We were referred to the Astoria. We walked in the door...

I stayed at the Astoria Hotel for one week in May 2009. The hotel has a good downtown location. It is close to Chinatown, about half a mile from Market Street and about 3/4 mile from the Moscone Convention Center. My small room had a sink, but no toilet or shower. The toilet and shower were in a bathroom in...

I stayed at this hotel exactly a year ago for two nights. I was 21, just graduated college. This was the hotel I started off my first ever California trip with, and I gotta say it didn't set the right tone for the rest of the trip. It was a decent price for San Francisco, and the best part about...

This place is located right next to Chinatown "entrance gate" and short walk to everything you'll need, including nightlife and public transport. The room had everything we needed, i.e. bathroom, safe, two beds, and windows. However, the room was disgusting: the walls, the windows, the bathroom, the carpet, the fan heater, basically everything really really old and worn, but not...
