“Colourful, yet modest”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

We chose this hotel purely because of location. Del Sol truly has a sunny atmosphere because of the joyful colours. B-fast is simple but fresh enough. The room was normal and the walk-in closet made it feel a bit bigger. Staff was friendly. We got room 204 and it was supposed to be quiet. Indeed that was quiet from traffic noise, but there is no good sound insulation so we woke up to a phone conversation above us in the middle of the night! If you are not a "tight sleeper", recommend to take ear blugs along.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quieter room ask it to face the alley and have it on the third floor.

Although we liked the location, 2 blocks from Union, 2 from Chestnut, and the free parking, the room was mediocre with almost no storage room

My daughter and I spent two days apartment hunting for her new job. We used Hotel Del Sol as our base. The rooms were clean and bright and colorful but did have a bit of a musty odor...that was minor. There is free parking which is a huge advantage considering lots of hotels charge a minimum of $45 per day. They provide a continental breakfast with bagels, coffee and tea. This is an open courtyard hotel that has lost of color from the pavement to the walls to the palm trees with lights. If you are looking for a base to go explore San Francisco then this is a great place. You have access by bus to almost everywhere...Union and Chestnut streets are close by for shopping and eats...Safe area of the city. WIll definitely stay here again. Staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: Get out and explore...take the 45 bus to North Beach, China town, Union Square

The title tells it all! Use only if reasonable rates is your only criterion.

My mom and I stayed at the Hotel Del Sol for a long weekend and could not have been happier. It's an adorable, unique boutique hotel that is within walking distance of a large number of San Francisco's many sights. It's also convenient for public transportation. We did have a car, but walked almost everywhere.

The breakfast was delicious, nothing crazy but better than store-bought pastries. The staff was courteous, our room was clean and comfortable, and the lighted palm trees in the courtyard make it easy to find.

The best part is that they have two hammocks.

I will absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: The elevator is small but there are stairs at each corner.
