    We chose this hotel mainly for its location, which is in the heart of SFO Union Square. It's easy to get around. The room is very small, but pretty adequate. There is a bistro/bar downstairs which is pretty good for breakfast or some drinks after a long day.

    Very clean and view up top was amazing.Parking is expensive we paid $35-60 to park with a few blocks.Also there is an additional “Urban “ tax which was almost $40 included in fee of room, for amenities and gym.... so factor in some additional fees to this hotel. We paid a total of $210, with parking, to stay there and the thought we got a good deal of $130. Still the rooms, locations and all the rest did make it worth the cost, and you are downtown SF!!

    We stayed here for 3 nights earlier this week & loved the hotel. The staff were great & it's an easy walk to Union Square & Powell St BART. The room was very comfortable. Our only negative is that we found the beds to be too soft for our liking. Definitely will stay here again.

    I got this 4 stars hotel with Agoda secret deals and I wasn't sure what we will get but I was greatly surprised. The location is excellent, with easy transportation to everywhere (we were doing uber anyway). The hotel is very clean and nice. It looks like new. The staff was very friendly as well. Very quality/price with Agoda.

    Within walking distance to Macy's Union Square”
    The check-in time for this hotel is 3pm. When we arrived at 2pm, our room was not ready for check-in. But they provide free luggage storage service. There is valet parking available at this hotel but we decided to park at the public parking garage across the hotel for cheaper rates. The hotel charge a mandatory urban fee of $34.19/night that we had to pay during check-out. The staff said it is for the use of wifi, coffee and tea provided in the lobby. Somehow I feel this fee is unnecessary and they should included it in the room rate on Agoda. This hotel is located within walking distance to the shopping area of Union Square. The room is newly renovated, and looks clean. The bathroom is a rather small, especially the sink area which is next to the bath/shower area. Apart from that, it was a good stay.

    Location was great. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. For the price I expected more but it San Francisco so I should have known. Cost me $60 dollars to park my truck over night not much other options to park unless u want a broken window and your stuff stolen. With the tax when u check out and parking fees it cost me a whole lot more then I expected to pay out. Walls were thin in my room I could hear the neighbors conversations.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Serrano Hotel. This hotel has a ton of character and each staff member I encounter was delightful. The location of the hotel made the city accessible on foot which was a plus. I will definitely stay at Serrano the next time I'm in San Francisco.

    Great location, beautiful room, excellent service
    Restaurant was very expensive, especially for breakfast
    We were welcomed as soon as we arrived. The door men were always attentive, each and every time we entered and exited. The clerks were very knowledgeable. The room was beautiful. The bathrooms were a bit small but very doable. Everything was very clean. The location was great, easy access to everything. No coffee in room but set up downstairs very early so you basically always had coffee available. I love this hotel and the price was right!

    Great Hotel, terrible bed”
    Location is great, front desk friendly and helpful, bell service very helpful
    breakfast service at restaurant was terrible, one of two beds in room lumpy and worn out
    Great lobby in a slightly dodgy area of San Francisco. Yes you are downtown, a block or two from Union Square, Theaters, etc., but the Tenderloin and Market Street are dirty, impoverished areas at your doorstep. The room was smallish but neat and clean with good linens. It had restored charm from an earlier era, but the heating system was loud and one of the two beds left me with a backache that took days to recover from. Otherwise a quiet space 17 floors above the city. I might give it another try based on the staff service and the moderate price. We did not use room service or eat dinner at Ponzu, but breakfast was served slowly, at high price and low quality. You're better off at the Taylor Street Cafe around the block.

    Terrific hotel”
    Fantastic view from our room; central location meant that we didn't have to drive anywhere; helpful staff; wine hour at 5pm; terrific decor.
    Drain in the bathtub slow; NY Times available in the lobby, but not delivered to door.
    My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Serrano for two nights in November 2008 to celebrate her birthday. Like the other Kimpton hotel we've stayed at, the staff was terrific, and the decor fantastic. The front desk upgraded us upon check-in to a lovely Queen Deluxe on the 16th floor with a terrific view of the city. The central location meant that we could walk to Union Square, Hayes Valley, the Embarcadero, and the North Shore without difficulty. Sure, space is a little tight, but given the historic nature of the hotel, not unexpected. The in-room mini-fridge is not badly priced if you feel like a drink once you've retired for the evening. A fantastic stay!

    Small rooms and location not so safe”
    The decor of this hotel was lovely however the rooms were tiny, the lifts very unstable and the location was very close to a lot of homeless people. With children, even though they were teenagers, I felt the area was not appropriate for walking around and even the hotel staff told us to avoid any street below our hotel which didn't fill us with any confidence in the area.

    Beware Hidden charges”
    There is a $20/night 'urban fee' which is compulsory on checkout. This is not mentioned until you check in which is dishonest. It also entitles you to some very spurious perks like Wifi (how is that not included in the room price in 2017?) and bikes to the financial district between 7am and 9am. Because of this dishonest surcharge, I would not stay here again.
