This hotel is simple and clean, very well located and has a small but important breakfast. The beds are good. The bathroom a bit small, but was ok. the bedroom in average, but to spend all day out it was perfect.

We could have coped with the very old decor , furniture and creaky lift and even the sweet wrappers on our bedroom floor but the rudeness and total lack of interest from the lady who checked us in was unacceptable. Most of the other staff followed her example. Good location but I would not recommend.

This hotel is average, rooms are clean and good size, price was reasonable, staff was courteous and very helpful. Down side, the car park was $40.00 a day and was charged to get it out when needed. Next door is the White Horse Inn. Small but cozy, friendly staff, normal bar food but serves a Continental breakfast for the hotel.

A lot of negatives on the breakfast. Its free - and you get a limited choice of cereal, average orange juice, choice of tea bags and 2 types of coffee. Choice of some Danish pastries and muffins. some fruit - bananas/apples/grapes. Not that bad. Rest is good - location 7 mins walk to Union Square, Clean, room size acceptable. Staff... More

First of all I want to conclude that my 4-star review is based on the fact that Hotel Beresford is only a two star hotel. You have to set your expectations in reality with this in mind.

Hotel worked out great. Only one block from Powell cable car lines, and two from California. Room was spacious and clean with a very comfy bed. Liked their environmental policies for not changing sheets or towels unless on request, something that I feel should be standard in all hotels now. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. They organised an airport... More

If you set your expectations correctly you will totally get a ton of value out of your stay at this place. Nothing fancy and very old yet well kept, this hotel is perfect for a cheap night stay to rest your head, take a shower and have a "home base" if you are checking out all of SF. This hotel... More

Beresford is a reasonable hotel if you don't want to spend much, but stay in a small palace of de XIX century and only 5 blocks from the city center. Although it's old it is well preserved. Take into account that you have breakfast included but no other meals. Move with the hop on hop off tu know the city... More
