        Friendly staff, great location- just off Powell St. Had small room but was very workable. Clean. Definitely would stay again.

        Had car which required valet parking off site. Was a bit expensive but probably not more than other hotels.

        The front desk staff was so friendly. There is free internet and computers in the lobby. I also stayed at a much more expensive hotel and the room was the same quality but you had to pay for internet and fitness center. It was nice at Abri that everything was included. I'd stay there again!

        Loved most all of the staff... very helpful and personable... manager's nightly beverage... killer location... comfy beds... iPod alarm clock radio

        Was checked in by new staff and it was a long process but I realize we all have to learn at sometime... the deluxe king room are wicked small, not sure that I'd want to stay longer than a night or two...

        Wonderful staff! Everyone was helpful. I was upgraded to a King room and there was barely room to walk around. Rooms small - Otherwise a great value and great service.

        Location just next to train station and tram and all shopping dining just outside. Staff were very polite at the front desk. Room had all necessary facilities.

        We lost mY moms spectacles but we cannot be sure if it was taken from the room or she misplaced it. The room with tax around 235 usd was expensive. They hold 50usd per day on your credit card which was not known to us earlier although it was not a big issue.

        The hotel is kinda old fashionedly built with a newer hip/modern style that is wonderful. I had my wife, 9 yr old and 12 yr old for five day stay. It is perfect! Close to transport, a mall and sights. Again, it's a great place and would stay again!

        My room didn't have a lot of drawer space for an extended stay with family, but not that major. Great stay!

        The hotel was very clean, quiet and perfectly located.

        The valet parking was too expensive ($40 a night) and was he hotels only option for parking. You would have to call at least 20 minutes in advance to get your car and most the time you would still have to wait a bit longer.

        Amazing Personality Hotel at a Great Price! The staff was amazing and the hotel was comfortable, convenient, contemporary style, and clean! Had an amazing experience!

        Great location in central San Francisco, right in the shopping district; public transport in close proximity, valet parking offered by the hotel for SF-typical astronomically high rates (38usd); excellent staff, super- helpful in offering recommendations what to do/where to go; many nice cafes & restaurants in close proximity

        The hotel is nicely refurbished, but it's obvious that it is an old building (especially in the bathrooms); the hotel doesn't have a gym/pool - which we didn't miss during our city trip though & it was a bit noisy even with closed windows in the evening, as an apparently great club is right opposite (long queues of people waiting outside); the on site restaurant closes the kitchen at 10pm

        The hotel experience could not have been better. We were greeted by hotel staff who were helpful and friendly. The room was very nice for the price we paid. The only downside was that the free gum ball stuck to my dental work.

      • Family with children

        Wow! The perfect spot to stay with 2 children 10 and 12! We had a suite which was the perfect size. We read reviews that said the hotel could be loud - we didn't hear a peep! I have to say that the staff was incredible! Warm and welcoming throughout our stay. Johnathon - you should be commended! The hotel was beautiful! Every detail was taken care of from the luxurious soaps in the bathroom to the stellar coffee in the mornings. I can't say enough great things about our stay at Hotel Abri! We would recommend this hotel to everyone!

        The location at night was a bit seedy - but I think you probably get that in all big cities.
