Individual guest reviews

  • The location is excellent and the hotel is right in the heart of Union square. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the room is clean and comfortable, downstairs restaurant near completion to open in Feb.

    The reception stuff was more than unfriendly and the one toilet and one shower on the floor were filthy.

  • Very near of shops and literally 1 block from Union square. Good value for the price and great rates. Loved the very respectful staff, room was clean.

    The location wouldn't be better, the pictures of the hotel are misleading.

  • The location is perfect, just 1 minute walk from Powell St and in short, its a nice physical hotel that could be a very nice place. The price for you get is great, employees have a good customer service and receptionists are very professional. Rooms are large, airy, comfortable.

    Staff acted in a very unprofessional maner all along our stay, noisy building site next door and lobby made inconvenient. Front desk was not friendly i got there, shower was a little weird.

  • Location was the best and position, since I had to move from my previous hotel , was better and cheaper. The price was very reasonable for being right in the middle of all, the staff were amazing and the bathroom was also new and excellent.

    Soft drink machine empty for two day stay no ice machine, shared bath and wash room.

  • Excellent location for the price, you just stop in the middle of the road and large windows looking out at the street. This place is great and the lobby area is a sort of fast food Mexican restaurant. The staff is very nice and after Claudia the manager assured us would be fine. The room is clean.

    The rate was very good considering the busy time in the city and receptionists were not well informed about nearby services, such as rental car companies. At the front of the hotel was extrememly noisy, shower was very small and unfortunately, the new towels that we got were also stained.

  • The location was amazing and great restaurants nearby Hotel had great deco. Price was superb and the staff at the front desk were very nice and friendly. My room was quite clean.

    Across the street is a big construction site and the noise is awful, the place is very noisy. No internet other than the second floor and our first night the toilet didn't flush properly and backed up.

  • Great location on the doorstep of powell, adorable Budget Hotel and steps from Union square, beautiful building. Nice for the price and friendly staff. The hot shower functioned perfectly, i loved your jacuzzi and liked the food at Betty Boops.
