    Great location near Union Square”

    Central location, close to Westfield shopping center, short walking distance to Powel St BART station, Union Square, & cable car, no homeless people along the street so we feel safe. Old hotel that has been refurbished. Room is a little bit small & sound proofing needs to be improved, but it is clean and beds are comfy. Free use of bath robes and great coffee machine in room. Free use of business facility & luggage storage. Staff are helpful and friendly. It's a bit pricey, maybe because of the location & we stayed on new year eve. If you are taking Big Bus San Francisco, there's a free shuttle from Pickwick Hotel to Big Bus Stop #1 Fisherman Wharf. Overall it's a good hotel & I'd recommend it for people who visit San Francisco for the first time.

    Great hotel to stay when the hotel is secondary”

    1) Close to great shopping 2) Zipcars available in the hotel parking garage 3) Cheaper than other hotels in the area

    My wife and I come to San Francisco twice a year for shopping and visiting family and friends. We don't spend a lot of time in the room so the Pickwick is perfect. Clean room, centrally located to shopping and trustworthy staff. Yes I could stay at a more luxurious hotel but why spend the extra money there when I can buy more things to bring back home?

    Quaint but serviceable”

    I chose the Pickwick because it was a good price close to the Moscone Center, and appeared to have decent reviews. The room is smaller than the typical hotel room (of the major chains) but more than adequate, at least for one person. While I could hear street noise from my 6th floor room, it was not too loud. I will say the bathroom is QUITE small. I did not have enough room for my toiletries on the sink, and the space was so constrained that attempting a shower seemed rather tricky. I didn't want to risk it. On the plus side, the vending machine is very reasonably priced -- for a hotel machine in a major city, at least. You can pick up a soda and a snack without being gouged. I would stay here again for a one or two night visit. Any longer, and I might see if they have rooms with bigger bathrooms.

    Location, Polite Staff, Near Shopping Area

    This is the second time I stayed at the Pickwick. It's a relatively old hotel, but has been well maintained. Perfect location given that it's actually at the heart of Mission and Market streets. It's just behind Bloomingdales, and walking distance to Macy's. The only thing I didn't like about the area is during late night/dawn. I'd wake up during the middle of the night because of police sirens in the area. Some of my friends say that the area really isn't tourist-friendly at night, so I made sure that I'm back at the hotel before it got dark.

    Always a Great Choice”

    We've stayed at the Pickwick multiple times over the years and have never been disappointed. Location is great, staff are respectful/helpful/ensure your privacy, and they gave us a great room this time with an amazing view of SOMA. Food options around the hotel are great during the day; a little more annoying at night, but nothing to complain about as the restaurant/bar connected to the hotel serves pretty late too.

    I thought this hotel was a great place to stay. Ive stayed here before about 3 times I believe. It made for a good quiet place to enjoy a few drinks with friends. We were able to hangout at the bar downstairs peacefully before going out and about in the city. I had a great time for my 23rd birthday thanks in part to the pickwick. I would reccomend this hotel to all of my friends.

    Older Hotel, great location, still needs some remodeling”

    Very clean and great staff. Rooms and lobby have been updated, hallways could use some work. Rooms are small, but that's what you get in a downtown hotel for this price. One of the elevators wasn't working for the entire week we were there. They are in the process of replacing it. The other elevator worked, but was very slow. The attached restuarant (Soma) had really good food at a fair price. I'd stay there again for the regular price. We were there during Dreamforce (Salesforce.com conference with 170K people) so the price was much higher than normal. Of course that was the case for every hotel in the area.

    old but clean”

    very close to moscone center

    I was a little bit concerned when I first looked at review for this hotel on yelp -- there were a lot of complaints, esp. about cleanliness. When I got there, it was not nearly as bad as it was described -- yelp reviews were probably highly biased for hotels in general in that only dissatisfied customers would post on yelp. I find the room pretty clean, and the bed very soft and comfortable. There is free wifi internet, and in my experience its performance is better than most other hotels with free wifi. The hotel in general is old, and as a result the rooms are somewhat old. You can see cracks in the paint on the wall. The room is also pretty small, barely any room after putting in two double beds and a small desk and dresser. The closet is walk-in and decent size for a hotel room though. Bathroom is similarly small, but clean as well. One thing to note is that the water-pressure is a bit low. Walls are pretty thin, so if you listen carefully you can hear the neighbors talking or the TV. But there are enough ambiance white noise that I don't find it disruptive unless you have really bad neighbors. They don't appear to have a thermostat inside (though there are probably central AC), but just a heater. It's not a problem for me as I traveled in November, but could be problematic in the summer. The price is fairly cheap compare to other options (~$200 per night during a conference in SF, it's at least ~$15-20 per night cheaper than other alternatives with shorter walk). It is very close to the subway station so going to the airport is easy.

    Superb location a block away from Powell Street metro station which has a direct line to the airport. Also it's next to the Westfield shopping centre which has some nice good value Asian food options and a bubble tea stand in the food court located in the basement. The first room I was in had an awful fishy odour. Fortunately the lady at the front desk switched me immediately to another room that thankfully smelled pleasant. The room was a nice size with a comfortable double bed, fair sized desk and comfy desk chair. There's a programmable safe in the room. The biggest issue I had with the room was the thinness of the walls. I could hear the guy in the room next to me talking on his phone and the people on the opposite side talking. I could clearly hear everything in the bathroom next to my bathroom, which kind of made things a bit embarrassing sometimes. The bathroom itself was nice enough, the water pressure and hot water were excellent. Getting home I miss using the shower in th

Although the room we were in was quite small, it was still very nice. The bed was very comfortable, it was very quiet, and it was easy to get around. They didn't have a shuttle service available, but they partner so reserving a shuttle to come pick me up for my flight was very easy. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.

    Overall, I had a good experience ”

    1) centrally located, 2) close to BART stop, 3) cost effective

    Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The only real negatives were 1) it was pretty noisy at night, but it's located in downtown so that was to be expected I guess and 2) The room wifi service was non-existant and I could never establish even a serviceable connection, but they have public use computers on the 2nd floor so I had internet access as needed, but it was still a bit of an inconvenience.

    Nice hotel with great service”

    fine location near by union square, down town, sf

    we booked two hotelrooms over the internet a few days from our stay in sf. becauce of the 4' of july there was nearly full booked at the hotel, therefor we got a suite for the same money as the standardroom we also had booked. that was great service. also there was no problems with a roll away bed in the suite.

    Good Deal for the Price Break! ”

    It's an older charming building with a great location. Staff members are very friendly. Always ask for a room higher up when making reservation... provides interesting views of city. Shopping and restaurants all around as well. Parking structure is right next to hotel across street!

    They really push buying direct through them”

    Location, Cost, I don't know

    TL;DR: If you buy through Agoda or other partners, beware, you're a second class citizen here. The wifi is spotty to slow for San Francisco. When I first arrived with a prepaid travel voucher through Agoda the front desk guy kind of scoffed at me and I was given a well-worn room on the second floor that I discovered in the first hour had no fridge, broken/chipped furniture, a horrible view, a TV that wouldn't turn on and the slowest 'high-speed' internet I've experienced since the day of dial-up. Because this was a business trip and I had to prepare presentations, that last discomfort was not tolerable and I went down to talk to the front desk about moving rooms. After explaining the work/internet situation, they moved me a few floors up and it was a very different experience: newer-cleaner furniture, a nice view, a bigger tv that worked, a fridge, a much nicer chest of drawers and there was a moderately faster internet connection (about 2-3 megs... still slow for San Francisco), but directly across from the noisey ice machine. The hotel wasn't full by any means, but whatever, at least I can do my work. They're very insistent that you should book directly through them. They even use it as the wifi username and password. Otherwise, it's a inexpensive hotel with the necessary amenities in a good location.

    Solid, affordable accommodations downtown”

    Comfort, location, price

    We've stayed here a few times - it's a great pick if you can get it for the right price. The beds are always comfortable, the rooms always bright and spacious and the in-room amenities always plentiful. I'd recommend this place to tourists as it's centrally located near public transpiration and within walking distance to tons of sightseeing hotspots. The staff is friendly and there is apparently a restaurant on the bottom of the hotel, but we've never felt the need to go there as there are so many other great options nearby.

    Great location for decent price”

    Location, price, historic

    Pretty good stay mostly due to the location. The room was small, the bathroom was old and tired but the hotel was clean and had some character. It was right across the street from the SF Chronicle and the Old SF Mint, a block from the Powell Bart station, and walking distance to just about everything including AT&T Park. I will stay there again because of the price and the location.
