Stayed here last year but a little concerned seeing some of the reviews and the slight price increase. I can only say Casa Loma delivered again.
Stayed here for a week in a standard double bedroom away from the streets. Slightly surprised it came with a fridge and a little table; didn't get this last time.
Despite some reviews of the frontdesk, I however was received well during checked in and got a iron and bottle opener promptly when asked, Although the room was right in front of the shared bathrooms; which are maintained well, I never bumped into anybody or heard any foot traffic. The hotel in general was very quite and didn't seem to have a lot of guest, which was great.The hotel is a no-frills, clean and affordable facility; rooms don't get clean and have to take own trash out but I don't mind making my own bed and saving on tipping housekeeping. I like Casa Loma for the neighborhood, Haight-Ashbury.
Some tips: take 21 bus from Hayes to downtown Market Street area, boutique shops and restaurants on Hayes just 10 minutes walk away, get groceries from Key Food Market on Fillmore and breakfast and happy hour at Cafe du Soleil also on Fillmore, check out Alamo park on Hayes for the classic view of the city.
Cons: rooms do not have enough outlets or are inaccessible, the pillows are too thin and it can get chilly at night; might be because its an old building or the temperature is not regulated properly.
Casa Loma is great if you're on a budget and want to be away from enjoy a quaint residential part of the city.
