A beautiful hotel. Very clean and quit. The breakfast is a good, good fruit, and juice. The staff is friendly. The hotel is near to the downtown. There are many bus station if you buy travel pass, the bus is free. Also, there is a big and beautiful mall.

Nice hotel, fair breakfast with coffee, milk, bread, jam, butter, fruits, cereals, etc. The location would be wonderful if it wasn't for the homeless on the nearby. In fact, I wasn't disturbed by them, however I must say it isn't pleasant... On the other hand, the staff is excellent, specially Fernando, always eager to help!!!

Given the sheer cost of accommodation in San Francisco, this hotel/hostel provides a value for money alternative. I stayed in a private twin bedroom with shared bathroom facilities. The room was exactly as per the advertised images. Ongoing renovations were apparent, and on a whole this was very clean and modern place. The location is excellent in terms of proximity...

The hotel itself was ok for the money that we paid. Clean room, some shared showers and toilets were clean too (you need to do little research and possibly use showers+toilets in other floors too). Breakfast was nice. The problem is totally scary neighborhood full of drug addicts and homeless people. Last nigh there was a shooting below our windows....

Yes, this is a dodgy area but the homeless people are harmless. The hotel is old but they are trying to improve things. The breakfast area is great and the coffee is good and I really enjoyed the cinnamon toast. The beds are new and the room is small but comfy. The floors are old carpet and they have shared...

In a nutshell, I would suggest staying here. The price is better than any other you'll find in the area, the sheets are clean and the folks are nice. Fresh fruit at breakfast :) Yes, the rooms are small, but the hotel is being renovated and you can see the changes and hard work the hotel is putting forth to...

I booked this hotel at the very last minute and I admit that it was mistake. The area is super creepy and I was kind of scared when I had to come back to the hotel. The common restroom wasn't always clean so I was also kind of worried when I had to go and you could hear all the...

We chose this place last minute after Frontier cancelled our flight. We saw that it had 3 stars so I was expecting average quality. It was 1 star quality. The rooms were not all numbered so we had to guess which was ours. All of our bed linens had stains. My bed sheet smelled like mildew. My friends had random...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
