“Good for your sense of adventure”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Some of the rooms are beautiful. Unfortunately I got stuck in one of the rooms done in graffiti "art," which looked more like that room you see in the movie when the police finally find where the serial killer lives. Difficult to be comfortable there. However -- the location and price were great, staff was wonderful, and I would stay there again for a personal trip, just not a business trip. The old-style elevator was a little difficult to maneuver luggage into, but other modern amenities like free wi-fi and continental breakfast were great.

Room Tip: You may want to request a non-shared bath if that is important to you. Also recommend checking out...

Fantastic unique hotel in a great location. Very short walk to Chinatown, metro and downtown. Room itself was very comfortable with a lovely bed (made getting up difficult!), large flat screen TV and ensuite. Room was decorated in a very unique style and the styling of the hotel overall makes it a memorable stay. Breakfast was a bonus with great bagels, fruit and muffins. Loved being able to take it back to our room to eat. Would definitely recommend Hotel des Arts.

We loved this hotel, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and the staff are extremely friendly.
Amazing art throughout the whole hotel, The best value hotel in San Francisco.
We stayed in a room with shared bathroom for 8 nights on our 5 week honeymoon and this was my favorite hotel in the USA.

Would stay here again and recomend to all, there are some fantastic restaurants and shopping less then 5mins walk from hotel.

Stayed March 2012
