    Great Location, Next to Union Square”

    Location.. Location.. Location...

    Experience a downtown San Francisco hotel at the King George Hotel. Within the Union Square neighborhood, the King George Hotel is a unique boutique hotel in San Francisco offering comfortable accommodations with a European flair at affordable rates. This convenient San Francisco hotel is a short walk away from restaurants, shopping, theaters, the Moscone Convention Center and San Francisco’s world famous cable car line to the iconic Fisherman’s Wharf.

    Great affordable hotel with lots of perks”

    Location, convinent, affordable

    Considering this hotel is in the Tenderloin District (well I'd say the boarder of it) it was a pretty decent hotel for an affordable price. The hotel is in one of the best convenient locations which have everything at your doorstep without being too congested or noisy. You have the BART (Powell St Station), the MUNI and Cable Carts within 2 blocks from the hotel. It's also extremely close to shops such as Macy's, Bloomingdale and Nordstrom which is a shoppers dream having everything pretty much at your door step. The only downer would be the slow elevator. There is only one and you can find yourself waiting a while. Another downer is the homeless people around the area but I found that you found this all over San Francisco. Also if you treat them with a little respect they will tend to be friendly back. As a single female traveler I had no issue with this nor felt scared compared to some other areas of Tenderloin. The hotel does have small rooms however I've stayed in much smaller. I also don't tend to spend my entire time in the hotel room so this did not both us at all. The beds were comfortable, linen was clean, the showers had great pressure and were hot. The internet speed was amazingly fast too. Would I stay here again? For sure!! I actually had booked this hotel for 3 nights and had to come back to San Francisco for my last night so I re-booked this hotel for my last day in San Francisco. If I come back I'd definitely stay here again.

    The King George Hotel, San Francisco”

    Wonderful location, reasonably priced, quaint and clean, helpful personnel.
    Expensive parking, no on-site workout area.

    The King George Hotel San Francisco is ideally located within walking distance of Union Station which provides wonderful shopping, restaurants and a wide variety of transportation options to all parts of the city. The cozy quaintness of the hotel provided a comfortable atmosphere to relax and regroup before taking off to explore the city. On site personnel were pleasant and helpful regarding any additional assistance or information. I highly recommend this Hotel for the conservative traveler!

    Location, location, location.

    My wife and I were on a budget to tour San Francisco and we figured we just need an affordable place that is comfortable enough for us to sleep in. King George Hotel fits the bill and more as it is nicely decorated, staffed with courteous people and the location is just fantastic right in Union Square. There's no room service or restaurant in the hotel but there's tons of eateries nearby including the nice little diner next door. The hotel offers free Wifi and the room was pretty clean so personally, I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Location, Staff, Value for Money

    King George is value for money. It is at Union Square, which is near the best shopping places and restaurants in downtown San Francisco. Good English-speaking staff. The rooms are average as they could be cleaner. I saw strands of hair on my bed when I arrived during my first night. If your room doesn't have a working desk/table, you will need to request for one. Good thing the hotel has very good staff. The hotel is about 100 years old and the elevator is slow. Still, all things considered, King George is value for money.

The hotel service and the staffs were great. The room was tiny but pretty much standard for San Francisco and had a basic amenities. Also the hotel had a water server so that was really good!

    Nice hotel centrally located with easy walking distance to the MUNI & BART public transport systems (5th & Powell), which allow easy connection to Caltrain and thus either San Francisco Airport or San Jose airport. Also there were many good restaurants within 5 minutes walk, though not the hotel's fault but eating out extensive. Main shopping area was also within easy walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was small but have everything at hand and was comfortable (even had ceiling fan in room, though no AC, but SF was cold at night for late July) - what more could one ask for?

    Weekend at The King George”

    Clean rooms and nice beds. Nice location for travel and shopping. Great staff and a good area.
    I wish that they served breakfast and coffee.

    Stayed here over a holiday weekend. the rooms are clean and the staff is honest. They were pleasant and eager to make our stay comfortable. Reminded me of our favorite hotel in Frankfurt, Germany. We bought the CityPass and that made the King George our base hotel. I do not think I have ever enjoyed in the City any more than this one. I have stayed at The Nikko at 3 times the price and my room was hardly any larger. Stayed at The Westin St. Francis and that was a wonderful room. I slept there and showered there which is exactly what I did at The King George. No different. I loved this little place. Hate the fact that they don't have good espresso, fruit and rolls in the a.m.

    My partner and I had a pleasant stay at the King George. If you are a tourist, I think the location is pretty great, as you are close to the Powell bart station, ferry building, downtown shopping, chinatown etc. and the room price is very good for what you get. Although breakfast is not provided, the hotel is close to some delicious breakfast joints so it's easy to find something good to eat in the morning. Our room was clean and cozy and we both had a good night's sleep, which we needed after our long flight. If I am back in SF and need a hotel, I will consider staying at the KG again.

    Great Location, Small Clean Rooms”

    The King George Hotel is situated in a very convenient location, close to the BART Powell St station and numerous MUNI metro bus and tram options. Union Square, Chinatown and the Downtown district are all minutes walk away. Don't read too much into reviews saying the area is unsafe, as I felt it was fine. Whilst there are homeless people about, there wasn't heaps and most of them are pretty harmless and just want some loose change. The room we got given at the King George Hotel was fairly small, smaller than we expected and what the photos make them out to be. The rooms were clean however, but what was the most annoying fact about our room was that our bathroom had no floor drain. With a shower curtain for the shower only, it meant out floor got flooded easily and there was nowhere for the water to go. Otherwise if you are looking for a simple place to stay in a convenient location, it is a fairly good option.

    I took a chance on this hotel booking it over the net at a good price for downtown San F. I have stayed at similar hotels which have been much more expensive. I was very satisfied with the attitude of staff from the time of booking in. The room was not large but adequate for a single traveller, clean and quiet at the back of the hotel. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.
