My daughter and I stayed at the Metro one night and I returned a week later for another night. The place promises a small clean room with a personal touch and a fair price. It delivers on all that. The night staff and the morning staff were uniformly friendly and helpful balancing a mix of hotel and hostel vibe. Paperbacks...

The Metro Hotel has an excellent location in the Haight. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nothing fancy, but nice, clean, and comfortable. I stayed in an "interior" room, which had a "view"of the hallway to the back garden, which is shared by the restaurant next door. The back garden could be nice to sit and...

Truly a hidden gem of a hotel in San Francisco. The Metro Hotel is a great value for clean, comfortable no-frills accommodation. The ROOMS: They're small, but sufficient. Very clean. Quite comfortable queen-sized beds. Ceiling fan and good lighting. We had an "interior room", which basically meant that the window faced out onto an interior courtyard. Nothing to write home...

The Metro Hotel is fantastic. Still feel like I got the deal of the century staying here. We chose the hotel based on price and proximity to The Independent where we saw a concert. But I would stay here again even without a concert to attend. The staff is very friendly and upon walking out on our check-out day, I...

Overall: Small room with refreshingly clean and large bathroom. It was a very reasonable price for being able to stay within walking distance of lower Haight. It was nice having a room to retire to after spending time with friends and family in the city. However, this is definitely not a room in which to "lounge around". Pros: Fantastically clean...

I opted to stay in a slightly cheaper room which was described as being good for a heavy sleeper and as being able to hear kitchen noises in the morning. I decided that would not be a problem since I had to leave at 4 the next morning for a flight. Unfortunately the noise was also at night, extremely loud...

The Metro Hotel is a honey of a hotel. As soon as we crossed the threshold we received a warm welcome and a funny stories from "Miss Gina". Our room was great, a nice comfortable bed, a sofa, plenty of closet space and a great view of the garden. There are good restaurants in the neighborhood and great shopping. Everyone...

The staff here were friendly and helpful. Yes, you have to carry your bags up some stairs, but these rooms were $88 per night. You get a good deal for the money you pay. The rooms are slightly on the small side, but the bathrooms are big and well-equipped. The neighbourhood is fun and there are lots of good restaurants...

Thank you TripAdvisor for bringing this gem to my attention. Budget hotel in San Francisco sounds like an oxymoron, especially good budget hotel. But I was amazed to get such a clean comfortable room for $100. That said, as you walk the creaky stairs, hallways etc you will be thinking, "oh no"..... old carpet, old fashioned key locks, etc; feels...

my goodness, first time in SF and I used Trip Advisor to find this hotel. All the positive recommendations are correct. The staff and service is great. The accommodation is clean and we had a second floor room at the back and it was very quiet. If you are elderly, overweight, and not inclined to want to walk up two...

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
