No bathroom in the room, no parking lot and the staff very bad.

This was the cheapest available property that we could find that actually featured a private room ANd a private bathroom in SF. We found out after it was too late and we were already there that there was a very good reason for that: The place is surrounded by 3 homeless shelters, there is lots of drug pushing and usage taking place on the street and for blocks around this property, and the windows/walls are paper thin so you can hear the street dwellers yelling at eachother all night long and the steady stream of sirens (including the early morning wake up call to the people passed out on the sidewalk)

The hotel is budget-friendly and was close enough to all the places we needed to travel to. You have to leave your key with front desk whenever you go out and the staff don't check your ID when you get your key back - you just need to tell them your room number which feels precarious. The wifi was terrible. Luckily we were attending a conference and had access to wifi at the convention center. I had to tether my laptop to my phone back in the hotel room. I recommend getting a hotspot if you're going to stay here if you don't have unlimited data. We also had a very uncomfortable encounter with one of the staff who has no idea how to talk to persons of color.

The location of the Aida Plaza is close to public transport, but the area is quite uncertain. At the entrance there is a broken glass of the hotel and the very dirty and very uncertain lift. The room was not very clean, and the room sink was broken, just as you had to always press the water. Toilets are very dirty and showers the same

Good if you are on a budget and only need a place to stay. Rooms are tiny and dated. I recommend ear plugs as you are right next to Market st. where a lot of homeless ppl are. They tend to shout and have fights during the night, not to mention the constant police sirens that run by. Also, front desk wants you to always give them your keys when leaving so they can foist the visitor's fee onto your bill if you bring anyone else inside. Which is inconvenient af if you are going out to the nearby CVS for 5 minutes or so. Why make the whole ordeal 20 minutes long when I am only going out for 5 min??

Stayed there because it was the only hotel under $200 a night still available for my trip. Figured how bad could it be. It was adequate. I would stay there again but only if I had no better option.

Ok..cheap price and good if you just want a room to sleep in for five hours

Old time charm, friendly staff, nice lobby, clean room. Convenient location and good value. It is surrounded by several empty buildings which made the location a bit less ideal.

While it's a little out dated, it was perfect for what we needed. I did not like how we got some irritation when we took our key with us since we knew we'd be coming in and out of the hotel many times and hour for the entire day, and while I understand it's a safety thing, it still was kind of rude. The heat didn't really work, and we were not told that someone would come through to clean our room, so coming back to things moved and tossed around was not a pleasant thing. The staff were nice and helpful, but it was a little worrisome when they didn't check ID when giving the key back. All we had to do was state the room number.

Well it is old fashion so not a bad really for those who come to San-Francisco and wanna see this beautiful city and its surroundings. People were kind to me and help me to make confirmation for shuttle bus to SF airport.

The hotel was at a convenient location due to its close proximity to many places

I have stayed here before, and the location is great. Muni, F train, BART and buses right outside the door. Many stores, theaters and restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. Older hotel, but clean and sufficient and very friendly staff. Free bag check before or after your stay.

No surprises here. Under $200/night in San Francisco during Dream Force? With not many options, I chose this place. The Good: bed was reasonably comfortable my room was away from street/surprisingly quiet good location helpful staff (directions, shuttle to airport booking) The Bad: not very clean (lobby, stairs, halls, room) not the greatest area (I did not have any issues, but did not feel particularly safe, either- not the kind of area I would normal find myself in).

Hotels are expensive in this area so not bad if you don't care about cleanliness, noise, or a little of smell. I was not really staying at the hotel on my trip so it was acceptable. It's close to the Bart station (Civic Center) so it's convenient but I recommend to be careful around for your safety.

the staff are very friendly and willing to help you at all cost. They have certain rules such as if you are bring a friend to your room, you are require to write their name name and also when you out you must leave your key at the front desk. The location is good, it's a 30 minute walk to embarcadero, 10 minutes or less to city hall, but overall good location. The hotel needs lots of upgrades but for the price, it is a good hotel to sleep and shower.

I was staying by myself for a weekend. Nothing great about the hotel itself but the staff was nice enough. Was barely in the room so I didnt care as long as it was cheap.

Hotel was very old design, did not have an in room bathroom or shower. Was only staying a couple of night but still was not what I was expecting, they should make that more clear in the hotel information.

Hotel was nice but the area wasn't ideal. It seemed like it was in one of the unsafe parts of San francisco

Staffs were good and nice. Free coffee. Location is kind of dangerous. People are standing in front of stores and those stores are just next to hotels. Restaurants are very close. Overall, it's okay. 3

The hotel is in the Tenderloin district. The hotel itself is old, but clean. The staff are nice and efficient, and there seems to be a lot of foreign travelers. In the lobby, they have free donuts in the morning, and tea and coffee all day. I had a room where the shower and toilet were down the hall. My room was pretty basic, but carpet, sheets, towels and pillows were all clean. I was perfectly happy with the hotel and it seemed like a decent value. I would stay there again. I don't know what the more expensive rooms are like at all, unfortunately, so I can't tell more picky people who expect a lot from a room, what those rooms would be like, but judging by my cheaper room, I know it will be clean.
