    Free coffee, wifi available, and public transportation is out in front.

    Unique Quality: Location, location, location...

    The staff is extremely helpful.

Great Value, Convienient Location

by TripAdvisor Member TropicalOasis

This place is no palace, but it's a great price in a great location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. I arrived early, but was still allowed to check in and was also moved to a room with free Wi-Fi when asked. There's a Trolley Car stop right out front that travels between The Castro area and Fisherman's Wharf so that took care of where I needed to go. Public Transport in SF is cheap and well run, the complete opposite of LA.
During the day I would catch the trolley downtown for sight seeing and then at night catch it up to Castro for dinner and drinks.

Nice little hotel!

by TripAdvisor Member Sommiel

Some of the rooms are small, but it is very clean and the staff was wonderful. David the manager was very helpful and kind to me. I will be coming back for sure. It's a a ten minute leisurely walk to the Opera House and the sympony, faster than parking! Lots of great restaurants in the area as well.

Excellent!! David extremely helpful!!

Our 10 day stay at the Edwardian was a very pleasant experience. Reasonable rates, clean rooms, friendly staff and easy access to transportation. We would (and have) recommend this hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

Terrible hotel...

by TripAdvisor Member travellerParis

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights at the end of December 2006 and had one of the worst hotel experiences in my life!
Would not recommend this hotel for anything but its location (which is convenient).
I had a single tiny room, with old furniture (partly) falling apart. It had a horrible cigarette smell which would not go away.
Most importantly, the first day I was there, didn't have any hot water in my room! Also, the heating wasn't working and believe me, the outside temperature was really low... Despite mentionning this problem several times to the hotel manager, it was not fixed before the 4th day of my stay, which made it totally unpleasant and uncomfortable.
Also, one day, my room was not tidied up. And another day, the elevator did not work (I stayed on the 4th floor).
Everytime I (rightfully) complained about problems to the manager, he looked really annoyed... So my advice: don't go there, it's certainly not worse the price you will pay. And don't believe the positive reviews you may find here, which I believe are all complete lie... This hotel is not even worse a 1 star hotel...

Edwardian convenient location yet off the tourist track

by TripAdvisor Member joyfisch

The Edwardian is conveniently located on Market Street. It will taken you 5 minutes to get to Union Square by the F Market trolley, if that's where you are headed. Yet, it is close to the residential neighborhoods and has easy access to the Haight, Golden Gate Park, the Mission, and other areas where the locals and more seasoned travelers go.

Rooms are comfortable and offer shared or private baths, internet and two comfotable sitting rooms in a typical Edwardian style building. Staff are friendly and helpful and very familiar with San Francisco.

Filthy, cold hotel

by TripAdvisor Member CarmineMangione

The hotel was filthy, the room smelled like an adult book store with profusions of mold and mildew in bathroom. Heating non-existent as it must be turned on by person at the front desk with no in room adjustment.

When presented with the problems the schmarmy hotel manager tried to not confront the issues, did offer to switch rooms for me, but since the problems are systemic this was not really an option. Only by applying huge pressure from [--] did I get a refund.

pure hell

by TripAdvisor Member gez23

After moving from my apartment last week i decided to stay at the edwardian hotel for a week called the hotel made the reservation was given a rate of $350 thought it was good the desk clerk David was giving me a deal at the end of the week he decided to slap on an extra $ 49 tax which was not agreed over the phone and then i looked up a few hotel websites and checked out the week that i stayed there the prices for the hotel in question on two other websites had been slashed to $49 per night including tax.So travelers beware always check out other websites you might get a better deal rather than contacting the hotel itself!

Great Room, Good Value, Very Polite & Helpful Staff

by TripAdvisor Member kenmccune

Found this room online and was impressed with the low price and was even more impressed with the hotel itself. Full of little nooks and ambiance. Loved it.. There is a small dining room on the 2nd floor that has the best wireless signal.

v. helpful staff

by TripAdvisor Member W0rldTraveller

The hotel is very conveniently located on market street within walking distance (a mi.) of museums, theatre and the financial district. It is also right in front of a tram stop, which is a huge plus.

My only beef was that I booked my reservation at Expedia and was a bit disappointed that the room was one with a shared bath and WC. This important detail didn't stand out while making the reservation; esp. if you consider that Expedia has the Edwardian rated as 2-1/2 star which it in all fairness really isn't. This is a screwup on Expedia's part however as they need to make sure their ratings are more fair and balanced because I was certainly charged higher room rates by them as per the higher rating.

The manager at the Edwardian, Aziz, was however quite considerate when I pointed this out to him and bumped the room to a bigger bed and bath for the 2 nights out of 4 that he had availability for no extra charge at all.

If you are just looking for a place to crash and a great, easy-access location, this is a nice choice. I would also make reservations with the hotel directly for possibly better rates. And two definite thumbs up for a friendly staff.
