Good 6.0
Horrid bed
In fairness they are advertising a big refurbishment project for 2019, but right now it is grotty. Room was very (very!) shabby and basic, beaten up tatty furniture, thin sheets, no comforts whatsoever. It’s an older building right on Powell St so quite noisy at night. But what actually made me check out two days early was the horribly uncomfortable, lumpy, bumpy bed that was playing havoc with my back and I just couldn’t face another night in it. Front desk staff were ok, not super warm and welcoming, just the minimum required. You didn’t feel you could approach them with any questions. What you do get with this hotel is location, location, location, right on Union Square and super easy to get everywhere, close to a cable car stop, close to a Big Bus stop. It was a longish but flat, easy walk from here to the piers (took about 40 minutes). Plenty of restaurants and bars in the area. Also big name (but expensive) shops. If this is your price range and you have time to research I’m sure you can find nicer for the same price.

Convenient place to stay
A most convenient place to stay. Right in the financial district and right at the beginning of the tram which takes you to fisherman’s wharf. Friendly staff. Happy to see you. Airport shuttle service for $17pp, and they hold your bags for you for $2/bag. You pay a lot for not much. Could do with a kettle and fridge perhaps. Very small room - but I imagine that goes with the age of the building. Many reviews say shower pressure isn’t much - it’s true. But I wouldn’t not stay here because of that. Overall I was happy to stay here.

Very Good 8.0
Staff was pleasant and helpful. They provided a comfortable “no frills” stay and was reasonably priced. Good value for the dollar in the heart of the Financial district.

Fair 4.0
Cheap, get what you pay for
Front desk seemed very disorganized. They checked someone else into my room my 2nd night, so another guest unlocked my door and walked in. Front desk staff was not particularly apologetic, and apparently did not make the corrections well because it also caused confusion when I checked out. Room was small, but fine. Water pressure in the shower was poor.
