Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 6 nights whilst on a business trip, the location is very close to Powell station, however the corner with Eddy st. is one I would not recommend women alone traveling unless using an Uber from door to door. Also the wifi was below par and often not sufficient to decently work.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, was a great location and just a few minutes walk from union square. Staff were friendly when checking in and helped with directions. The room was spacious and clean. Would stay again

Wow...where do I star? I find this place online and it has GREAT (but misleading) reviews. They say nothing like Be Careful this place is in a rough area... I arrived a little after midnight.

I read the reviews going in to our stay at Hotel Bijou but was still a bit overwhelmed. We are from Chicago so are used to all the city has to offer, both good and bad. The homeless situation is tragic! They did not bother us a bit but after staying in an ocean view room the night before and...

Dear Loopycat13, Thank you for your review of our hotel. I wont try to argue with you that our city views can compare to the ocean views you had the previous night. But what we lack in views we try to make up for in service. We work often with the authorities to deal with our surrounding block, but understand...

Was in town for a conference and missed the conference rate and didn't want to pay over $300/night. Found Hotel Bijou for less than half that rate and only 1 block from the conference, so I booked right away. The hotel could use some updating, but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and maybe more recently updated....

Hotel is very small, the walls are paper thin and everything is pretty dated. At night you can hear everything going on outside/on the street, and you can hear what is going on in the room next door as well. The breakfast was a bag with a packaged pastry, an orange, and a mini water bottle. They served yogurt as...

We were somewhat concerned when we booked Bijou for our stay, but the reasonable rate left us with no other alternatives. San Francisco is exorbitantly expensive and this applies to accommodation as well. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very cheerful and welcoming member of the staff. We were offered a glass of wine; a very nice gesture. Our...
