I know the hotel price is high in SF. When I booked this hotel, I thought it'd be ok only for 2nights. But It was worse than I expected. Stinky and dirty. No bath room in my room. Located in Uncomfortable area. I won't go back this hotel.

I spent two month in SF and both of these month I stayed in Sweden House hotel. The price was excellent, even being a student I could afford to stay here for such a long period of time. The room was nice and clean, it had microwave and refrigerator. Bed was comfy and I had enough storage space to keep... More

The location of this hotel is simply perfect, the heart of the city, one block from Hilton, two blocks from city center and Union Square, walking distance from Down Town and shopping center. We never had problems finding a place to eat in the walking distance from where we were staying. By the way, I do recommend a Mexican place... More

We got a horrible room with a small window, broken bed, nasty sink in the corner, paint falling from walls. Everything was old and smelled bad. I was also over-charged and had to contact hotel million times to ask for refund! This place ruined part of my experience of such a beautiful city!

I did not like my stay at the Sweden Hotel in downtown SF. First of all, it was hard for me to find the hotel. There were no signs outside the building. There was also a presence of drugs, I smelled it in my room. Outside the hotel, there is a huge presence of homelessness. A lot of drug addicts.... More

The only good thing I can say about the Sweden House Hotel is that it gave me a funny story to tell my friends. Picture this: I arrive in San Francisco and at about midnight I'm dropped off by my Uber cab in front of the hotel. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where the "hotel" was.... More
