The Cova provided us with exactly what it said on the tin (unlike some hotels). The location, rooms and services were perfectly adequate for the price, which was reasonable. Staff were happy and helpful, and a good breakfast was included. There are no fridge faciliites in the rooms, which was a surpise, but I guess keeps costs down, and the...

Let me preface this review by saying I have stayed here previously in 2015 and I had an excellent stay. The first time I stayed here with 3 other people and we were so amazed at how friendly and accommodating the staff were. They were welcoming and made wonderful suggestions to us, as well as recommended using their shuttle service....

The hotel has a good location near the downtown center of San Fransisco. The room was clean, breakfast was very good and even the gym was well equipped. Front desk staff is extremly friendly and helpful at all times. Just a couple of things could use improvement. The gym needs to be looked after more frequently (need to have some...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, stylish, confortable and quiet. The complimentary breakfast buffet in the adjacent restaurant was good. Lovely rooftop indoor lounge area, and outdoor patio with fantastic views all around. The neighborhood around the hotel feels a little uncomfortable, but no one bothered us--no panhandling or hassle. We walked from the...

We stayed at the Cova Hotel for 3 nights and couldn't fault the hotel. The check in process was quick and easy. The rooms were clean, large and airy with big windows. The bathroom was very nice too offering all the usual complimentary soaps and gels. One thing to note however - the district this hotel is located, The Tenderloin,...

Given the price of San Francisco accommodation this place is terrific value but you do need to know what you are booking. It is been renovated to be modern, clean and spacious. It is also very close to the heart of San Francisco. It includes a simple but free breakfast - nice bonus. It is on the edge of a...

Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms and reasonably close to everything downtown. I read some of the other reviews. The negative comments about the neighbourhood are justified, but out of the control of the hotel. In two days I walked most of the central area and found that the dirt and street people are not unique to the area around the...

The hotel is nice and in the center. The neighborhood looks bad if you are taking the wrong way to go to center. Look in the hotel, they recommend a better road (same time and much nicer). The price of the hotel is good, complimentary breakfast is nice, food is nice as well, nothing fancy but ok (Sandwich, cereals, orange...

This hotel is located in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco near Van Ness - whilst the location is convenient the Tenderloin is a notoriously dirty neighborhood of SF. The hotel itself is basic but requires a remodel, I got a great rate for the hotel and it was comfortable and served me well although I found the fact that...

Visited in July 2016 with my family. The rooms were clean, funny reception. Complimentary breakfast is nice - food is ok. Would visit again. P.S. don't worry about the neighborhood, downtown is just a few minutes walk away.
