          Great Location”

          For San Francisco on a budget this was a great, convenient hotel to stay at - just down the road from Union Square & very handy to the cable cars (one of the stops is straight across the road). I do recommend to book in advance so that you get a cheaper deal & make sure you book a room with an ensuite. I had a Queen shared bathroom & while the amenities were clean, there were no mirrors in the room or in the bathroom (which was only a shower with a towel rack & wooden bathmat). In saying that the Staff were very friendly & helpful & I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to San Fran.

          Great place to stay!!”

          The hotel is located in the very great location! It's near to every thing you need: it's just a few steps away to public transportation points like bus, Union Square and tourist-favourite tram; convenience shop and stores like Wallgreens, H&M, Uniqlo and many brand-named shops. The staff are very helpful from guest desk and maid. Only a few things I don't like is that the heater works only in specific hours (like 8am-11pm) and the bathroom has a connecting door to another room -- we can hear them talking if we keep one door open. Breakfast is not included but they offer guests to have a 9$ breakfast at their sister hotel, Barlett - not far from Herbert hotel. Anyway, this is the recommended hotel to stay, it's clean, standard, new and convenient.

          Satisfying stay in San Francisco!”

          Stayed at this hotel for two nights. I stayed at 2-queen beds with a private bathroom. And it was actually two separate rooms connected with a bathroom which is cool. The rooms and the bathroom were tidy and clean. The staffs were nice and helpful. Location was really nice with trams and subway nearbyand you can find probably all the shops you need near the hotel. Satisfying cozy hotel and I want to visit again.

          1 Block Away to Union Square”

          The check-in process was fast and great, the location is perfect. However, please note that you cannot ask to leave your luggage at the hotel if you are coming early or would like to leave early, the will tell you to go to other hotel to do the baggage drop and it costs you $2 per bag. Although I was checked-out and come back to check-in the day after tomorrow (as I spent 1 night in Yosemite), the hotel did not allow you to leave to baggage with them.

          Excellent Value for the money -- I took the room with the bathroom in the room -- a deluxe -- this is important. It is spartan, as many others describe -- there is a funny smell in the hallway -- but inside the room is fine. Bathroom was older, but ok. If you want a great location for almost under 100, you can't beat this.

          Lifeless staff at reception”

          The hotel is ok, modest but in good location. The problem was the staff that was lifeless and not well trained. They barely say hello (not all of them but 2/3). The other problem, not ability to store your luggage, so if you come early, no place for your bags, you have to drag yourself to the sister hotel across the street. And no, they won't let you know when your room is ready and no, they don't use WhatsApp, only email (is this 1998?). Bad customer service. Nice room, large and comfortable.

          I booked a room with public bath but felt surprised and happy to be upgraded to a private bath room. The room was good! With a view of the street Powell with cable car, but no worries, the room equipped with double windows so that the room was quiet, at least, the noise was not from outside, but it was an old, traditional SF building so I knew what to expect... overall I loved my stay there.

          Fantastic location for the centre of SFO, however, did not like the shared bathroom aspect... There was no way of locking the bathroom door at night time, so somebody from the other room could have walked in at any time from the other side (which actually happened one morning....)! Very clean and staff were very good, rooms basic but have all basic amenities.

The room and bathroom were clean. Cons: There was no furniture for unpacking clothes for a 4 night stay. The bed had serious "hole" in it - I slept OK but anyone with back issues might not be so lucky. The bathroom needs hooks for wet towels. All told I would stay there again.

          We had a delux room with 2 queen beds and private bathroom. Despite the spacious room, when we arrived there was not a single piece of furniture to store or hang clothing.
