                8.2

                Friendly staff, very helpful with directions. The hotel was located in the heart of North beach where there were plenty of restaurants to choose from.

                The hotel is in an excellent location. My room was nicely furnished and decorated and quiet. I would totally recommend it. Great value for money.

                The room was a bit small and the "continental breakfast" very basic.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                Rooms are good size and parking is free.

                Room is noisy at night. Can hear all the road noise. Would prefer curtains that really block all the light.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The room was always kept very clean and the staff was very friendly. I did not have to worry about any of the personal belongings on my trip going missing or being taken which is great since I did a lot of shopping!

                I don't think the sheets were changed while I was there. It would have been nice to know if there was a policy set beforehand about not changing the sheets for someone staying more than one night, but I was not aware of it.

                Right next to China Town and Little Italy, blocks away from Fishermans Wharf. Very nice small hotel, and very quiet. Loved my stay.

              • Single
                6.6

                My first room faced the street and was loud -- I was unable to sleep all night. The hotel staff was very helpful with moving my room the following morning. However, that night a drunk couple were screaming at each other at 2:30am in the room above me; so I still didn't sleep. Hotel is located across the street from a bunch of strip clubs.

                The location was ideal for sightseeing in San Francisco. It's close to the transit system, tour bus operators and it's within walking distance to many interesting attractions. The hotel staff was friendly, extremely helpful and booked our shuttle for us back to the airport.

                Reception staff were incredibly helpful and the room was really comfortable with very nice toiletries in the bathroom.

              • Single
                8.2

                I had a nice view of the Coit Tower, and the Trans America was around the corner. I am a single female and I felt safe enough to walk around after dark. The room was very clean.

                The street below the hotel room window was loud, but that is expected for this vibrant neighborhood. The room doors have keys instead of cards which made me a little nervous.

                I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in to the SW Hotel. The staff were friendly and gracious. My room was a standard double on the 4th floor. It was clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and had a huge ensuite bathroom. There was a small built in closet plus drawers built into the bed where you can store stuff. The breakfast was adequate - a selection of cereals, breads, pastries, and boiled eggs, as well as coffee, tea and juice. I thought it was fine but I did see some people choose to go out for breakfast instead after seeing what was on offer. 10/10 for this hotel. I'd definitely book it again.

              • Single
                9.2

                I found the hotel wonderfully clean. Very nicely laid out. It's an older hotel, but in very good shape. The room was small, but very usable, as a larger room would have been a waste given that Chinatown and North Beach are both right outside the door.

                I would have preferred a more extensive breakfast layout, perhaps with something like eggs or waffles, or some more fresh fruit. What was there was still very good.

              • Older travelers

                Location, close to North Beach and Chinatown. Felt very safe in the underground parking lot.

                I got what I expected, it' s not a 4 star hotel, but was very comfortable and clean and safe.

                The location is perfect for day walking and nightlife! The hotel is exactly on the border beyween ChinaTown and North Beach (Little Italy), really close to Union Square (10min walking). Alive and safe area, full of restaurants/bar at nite. It might be a bit noisy if your room window is on the street (Broadway St) but fortunately our wasn't. Staff really nice, the rooms are a bit small (not a big deal if you need the room just to sleep) but clean and well furnished (much more important). Free Wireless Intenet in the whole facility!!!! For this range of price, in downtown, this was a really good choice!

                To be really picky: No mini-fridge in the room.

                The SW was located exatly where we wanted to be. Little Italy (North Beach) Chinatown and 1/2 block for the Muni #30...you can go anywhere in the city from that location. The staff seems to be all family, very warm and friendly. N of San Diego

                Location to restaurants and bars - parking was safe

                parking charge was too high
