It’s definitely got a rep...”
Reading the reviews for this place was some of the most fun I’ve had on Agoda in years. No joke... check them out! It’s all polarized! This said, I didn’t find the place that bad. It’s classic downtown San Fran architecture, which means a bit old. The WiFi is weak in the rooms. And the elevator that scares the bejeezus outta everyone is great—it’s an old school one that jolts after the wooden door slides shut. We loved it! Staff was also cool, helpful and friendly. The homeless thing isn’t only an issue here. There are lots of homeless people in San Fran, but they aren’t dangerous. I even stopped and chatted some of these guys up, listened to some wacky life stories. Not recommending it... just saying, I only felt unsafe immediately after having arrived. It’s not super, but it’s also not that bad. Just a tad overpriced, but then it is San Francisco...

I give it 3 stars due to location. ”
I used to live in SF for over 17 years but moved away to the midwest 4 years ago. The Monarch Hotel did not disappoint. The hotel was clean. The beds were made and changed with fresh sheets everyday. It was super affordable. You can't find anything cheaper and we did not want to stay at a hostel. There were tons of good restaurants, bars and night life on Polk Street. Yes, the neighborhood borders the Tenderloin but all of SF is filled with the homeless. You can't get around that. I liked the fact that I could walk 15 mins and I would be at Civic Center Bart or I could be at Union Square. Although, this is more of a 3 star hotel, I give it 4 stars for staff, cleanliness and central location.

Okay but you can find better”
Pros: One of the more affordable hotels in the city Helpful staff Sunny, large lobby with free coffee 24hrs Good selection of restaurants nearby Good access to downtown by bus 38 Cons: Homeless camped in tents below my window who argued every night til 11pm (but hotels twice the price have this problem too) Daily visits by firetrucks to bldg across the street Can hear conversations in adjoining rooms

Wouldn't recommend it ”
I booked the hotel for 5 nights and had to leave next day of arrival. Couldn't sleep at all. People walking at the room upstairs like elephants, someone had a cat next to my room and it was making noises all night. Plus nothing like the pictures. Bad shape. Looked old outside and inside. Terrible experience ever.

Friendly staff, very fast regard to check out, the room was good and we're comfortable. We are scared the homeless people outside the hotel, that why we stayed our room after 8 in the evening. I5 minutes to Union Square. We're satisfied in staying this hotel. (From the Philippines)

It was unclear to us how parking would work”
The staff was very nice and let us know the AMC parking garage around the corner was about ten dollars cheaper than their over night parking which was very nice after having to rebook that hotel when another one didn't work out.

Almost a Hostile ”
Little dissapoited with the parking facilities. They only offer valet for $41/day. The cheaper option is a $32/day garage about two blocks away. The hotel is filled with foreign guest who are VERY loud and operate on their own hours. Not thrilled. Was an okay place to lay your head but not much more than that

Not helpful ”
The monarch staff was not friendly. They watched as I struggled to get my bags on the cart, watched as I struggled to get it into the elevator, I had to ask about the valet policies and how that whole thing worked, they did not tell me the front of the building was a towe away zone twice a day and my car was almost towed while waiting for the valet, they were rude when I asked for my car to be called up, their valet was at least a half hour away and they charged a ridiculous amount for crappy service and they damaged my car. The rooms were not very clean nor laid out well (there was a walk in closet that made it impossible to walk around the bed. We had to walk over the bed in order to get in our room). The hotel was not in a good section of town, homeless were all over, and he community center was across the street. Overall, we had a less than poor experience here.

You don't get what you pay for”
Internet didn't work on any of my 3 devices. The only answer from the staff was that I was working for him, I'm sorry. The hotel looks really old and completely outdated with very used carpets and very poor equipment in the rooms. When you pay for a hotel you expect a lot more,.. even in San Francisco. This is probably one of the worse hotels in town for the price they ask and I've been in a lot of hotels of the same price-range...
