The worst hotel EVER

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 5, 2008

If you consider Satellite TV to be an antenna on the hotel roof, a hair drier to be a towel and internet access to mean being able to occasionally reach somewhere else's wifi and logging in once every 4 days, then this hotel did NOT lie on their Orbitz hotel listing.
But if you actually take a listing at its word, then you will start being exceptionally disappointed. Your sadness will grow as you discover this hotel's elevator is completely destroyed (with the door off and gears jammed with a mere rope of yellow caution tape keeping out any children brave enough to explore). Or when you realize your room only has one tiny mirror in the bathroom and no others in the room. Or when you notice the lack of an alarm clock. Perhaps the vacancy of a hotel ice machine will be the last straw for you, or maybe it will be the paper thin walls, or the staff's refusal to let you use their microwave.
Whatever you're looking for in a hotel, this place does NOT have it, that can be certain.
This panning review does not come from someone accustomed to 5 star hotels with saunas and free concierge, but from someone who could quickly point out 5 roach motels that are better than this nightmare.
Yes, the location is good, no, nothing else here is. Save your money and sleep somewhere else.

Unique Quality: there was a booger on the moldy shower curtain, that's always fun.

I got a room at this place for the stunning price of $35 a night off orbitz.com!!!!!!!!!!!

It's well located-right near the entrance to Chinatown and then north is North Beach/Telegraph Hill, close to Union Square, Civic Center, loads of restaurants within walking distance. Nice chinese people run this hotel. It seems to be popular with overseas visitors from Asia for obvious reasons.

It's a basic place - clean, good bed, TV works fine, plenty of room. I had to share the bathroom right outside the door with one other guest which was never a problem. Why pay an extra 30 bucks just for a private bathroom when you can have a well kept clean bathroom share? You share the bathroom with your housemates/ roommates dont you?

Unique Quality: location, value, clean, a real SF bargin

Directions: Near gate to Chinatown

Hotel Astoria San Francisco: Old Timer

by written on February 12, 2004

It?s not so much the price but the location in San Francisco. Downtown is: Chinatown, Union Square, Financial District however the hotels are having pricing wars so you can get great deals in this area. The places in town that are hip local and the ?City? are: The Haight, Noe Valley, Maria (however I?m not that hot it, it?s a bit yuppie), The Castro if you gay. Nob Hill for the stunning prettiness of it.

Fisherman?s Warf is NOT San Francisco. We never ever go down there. It?s weird, and it?s 100% tourists and not fun. I mean you HAVE to go to Alcatraz (book at least one month in advance) but that?s it.

Here are my recommended hotels on a tight budget: (This is my new travel web site by the way)

Downtown: Hotel Astoria, cute old-time hotel looks arruond $50 a night, but check the price and hotel:

Nob Hill: Grosvonor Hotel, About $96 a night.
