Reviewed 31 January 2012

Hotel staffs were very kind.
Breasfast was very good. (Visitors may choose one among 4 different menu for breakfast.)
Internet was easily accessed by free WiFi.

But there was no refrigerator in the room.

Room Tip: Very kind staffs, great location and nice breakfast

Small, friendly hotel right in heart of San Francisco, close to Union Square so within walking distance of BART and tourist spots like Pier 39 etc. Walk there and get the tram back. Discount at David's restaurant next door for breakfast and easy walk to various eating places. Small room but big enough for couple of days although we were only there one night but if you want central location and friendly accommodating staff this is the place. They looked after our bags to save us lugging them up the hill, whilst we went to pick up hire car from Alamo round the corner. Wouldn't use this Alamo office again though - jobsworths. Spent 2 hours arguing about one way drop off fee even though our car voucher said no charge - they eventually waived it but not before phone calls back and forth to UK via mobile.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Geary Street front would be quieter

I stayed there in the summer of 2010 for a couple of nights. It's in the heart of the city, and close to a lot fo things. A bit to crowded with tourists for me, but then again, being on the Alpha Road for tourist's is probably what makes this hotel a practical and good choice.

The price is reasonable, the rooms are simple (a bit "used" - but clean), and the staff is very friendly and helpfull. You feel welcome. An ok, simple and affordable hotel in the heart of the city. A good choice when looking for hotels on a budget.

We stayed here in October 2010. Having spent ages finding trying to find a place to stay in San Francisco, we were looking good hotel, that is cheap, in a good location and is clean. We were in San Francisco during Naval week, so as you can imagine most places were fully booked, and the places available had their prices inflated. We found Touchstone Hotel and what a find!!! The location was excellent, just a stone throw away from Union Square. The rooms were better than i expected. Very modern and clean. The only grip was they were very small, not much room to move around. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, and also becasue we had a street facing room, it did on occasions get noisy. But this didn't cause us any problems. The staff were fantastic, so freindly and helpful. The staff gave this hotel a more personal touch, they were interested in what you had to say and couldn't have been more helpful. This hotel is great, and for the price and absolute bargain!!!

We stayed for a week in this wonderful hotel situated right in the heart of San Francisco. Excellently located for the Bart and the Muni and only a short walk from Union Square. If you are looking for a comfortable bed while you explore all that SF has to offer for a good price, then this is for you.

The staff were very friendly and gave plenty of helpful advice on places to visit, places to eat and parts of the city to explore that aren't necessarily in the guide book. We were right above Geary Street, but weren't affected by the noise. Complimentary water is available in the room and guests can get a discount on breakfast at David's Restaurant next to the hotel lobby, as well as a discount from the bike rental store at the back of the hotel.
