Good choice for a budget traveller- Room was clean, quiet, had tv with cable and with wi-fi that worked good. A small room (with shared bathroom) but bed was comfortable. A computer with internet was in lobby for guest use as well. Very good location in North Beach neighborhood by shops, restaurants and Chinatown. A good value for a very...

Very friendly staff, excellent service! We had an excellent experience here and will definitely come back here to stay. The location is great, too. It is in the center of the city, close to the Chinese and Italian quarters, and to the Fisherman's Wharf.

The hotel is cheap comparet with the prices in San Francisco, but is what you pay for. The hotel inside smells bad and is old. The location of the hotel is very good close to the pier and is in a safety area. It was ok, but I will never come back.

You get what you see in their advertisement. As per SFO standards, it’s cheap, but if you compare with the rest of the US locations, you feel $100 - $130, its expensive. We stayed here for a night and used the room only for sleeping at night. Room was cramped but clean, mattress was OK. You have to use shared...

Cheap and easy accomodation in a good location for the pier. As a couple we arrived late, slept and left early before exploring the city by foot. Cheap and cheerful place to stay. Don't expect luxury. Wouldn't stay here on my own.

The good: Very nicely located near the Transamerica Building in Chinatown with plenty of good restaurants around. SF hotels are very expensive so anything under $100 a night is alluring. It can be easily reached by taking the #8 bus. The Suck: The whole place stinks of oldness, there are not enough bathrooms (especially in the mornings), you can hear...

On our road trip in the US is this the most expensive hotell of all hotels we are staying at, except the one we are staying at in NY and definitely the worst. You get less than you pay for. We got a tiny tiny room, with a tiny bed (queen size for two) Luckily we are not very big...

I was held on hold 8 times but when front desk picked up phone 3 times, they just yelled at me wow. First lady picked up the phone I said I would like to confirm my reservation she asked me which hotel. I was confused and thought maybe I called to wrong hotel. I said your hotel "North Beach Hotel"....

Since we only use hotels to sleep in, this place was perfect for us. Location was perfect for where we wanted to be: a block away from Little Italy and China Town and Peir 39. We didn't mind the shared bathrooms (as long as they were clean).

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile

A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
