The room and bathroom were very clean. The price was comparatively attractive. The windows faced a cement wall; felt like I was underground. ** For bare bones travel to downtown SF, the place was okay. The room was drab. The staff turned off the AC daily so the room was hot each day. Walls were thin; could hear neighboring discussions. The bed was unconventionally firm. Lighting was awkward; one ceiling fixture as primary.
GREAT location. I thought being in China town would be unpleasant form (simply because I'm from NY and being in a densely populated part of town held no appeal for me - especially since I was traveling on business). But I loved it! And the hotel is situated in the strangest but most fabulous block - it's a cross section between China town and a strip of very authentic Italian/Sicilian restaurants. The best food. I ate VERY well and enjoyed the clash of cultures. The staff was so incredibly nice and professional. Very friendly and accommodated my request with no problem. I liked everything. And I'm someone who hates staying in hotels. But this was really a pleasant stay. Keep in mind that I only stayed one night. But still, it was a great stay.
It was in exactly the location i was looking for
Right between Chinatown and North Beach. Clean, nicely decorated, friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay at SW Hotel.The staff was most helpful, especially, Jennifer, at the front desk. The Hotel is very handy to all the shops and eateries(internationally) and within walking distance to churches & public transport.During our stay, we walked everywhere....and it was safe and pleasant. n/a
very clean and central, good hotel for SFO, would recommend it
Staff was very friendly.Room was tiny, but given the city it was to be expected. Area of town looks seedy, but never had a problem.
Very clean and modern. Staff friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and within walking distance to many of San Francisco tourist sights. The value was great - especially for a city hotel. The rooms are a little on the small side, but doe the value I would stay here
The location is by far the best part of this hotel. Will be staying there again every time I travel to San Fran to have a good time. Not a very large room or special hotel for anything other than location.
Hotel is in Chinatown, only blocks away from North Beach and a nice (downhill!) walk to Fisherman's Wharf, but the cable car line was close by and provided our return to the hotel. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was continental style (toast, boiled eggs, cereal, coffee). Hotel and room were VERY clean and room was not as small as I thought it would be.
The location. Walking distance to quite a bit. I did not like that they did not help move bags and that the internet was an additional charge. Printing was an additional fee on tp of the internet fee if someone needed.Also the room faced a brick wall and the rooms were not soundproof.
The TV could not be heard well over the street noise- volume was locked at low level.
Staff was very accommodating. Parking was a challenge.
Location in North Beach section of town which was close to transportation and great restaurants; 'Happy Hour' with wine, cheese and crackers; friendly and helpful staff; price was right Room and bathroom was a little small
