    Excellent Bar and attached restaurant.

    Someone Spit on the elevator wall leaving a mess overnight. I had to inform the desk clerk about someones dispicable rudeness.

    Good

    It was a decent place to stay when most other hotels were sold out.

    I felt like I was staying at someone's apartment, which is not what I was expecting!

    100 meter to the right and you meet a lot of homeless people. 100 meter straight on and there are shopping malls

    This is a totally bare-bones place to stay. I noticed that the room carpets were quite dirty from the color of my socks after walking around on them. The bathrooms however, seemed very clean. This was the most inexpensive place we could find in a relatively good area. Don't expect to be impressed.

    Room 204 was very noisy, I could hear all the activities on the street. Also, there was a loud clanking noise every time someone flushed their toilet that woke me up a few times that night.

    I liked the price of my room; when all other similar properties were extremely expensive for the period that I needed to go to San Francisco, the Mark Twain still had reasonable rates.

    On the last night of my stay the fire alarm in my room went off for no reason. The staff was helpful, but it is the kind of thing that should simply not occur. I only was able to sleep for a couple of hours after that, as it had made me nervous about what might happen next.

    Location is perfect. Convenient to downtown and the wharfs.

    Small, slow elevator. Attached restaurant over priced and of fair quality.

    Fabulous

    The room was very clean and comfortable and the location was good.

    Although the room had a coffee maker, it would be great for it to also have an electric jug to boil water for tea. The reception area had a hot water urn and tea bags but it was not available early in the morning or later in the evening.

    Very good

    Location was very good.

    Warm water for showers was erractic. Cannot control the heat in the rooms. It amde it difficult to sleep comfortably. At times the room was very cold and at other times it was too hot. The windows open and there is a ceiling fan so that helped.

    Very good

    Not far from tourist attractions; very helpful, friendly staff ; comfortable room / bathroom ; free internet, lemonade and selection of teas ; nice complimentary toiletries and coffee in the room.

    The hassle once you step out of the door ( homeless people ) - very difficult to enjoy a cigarette ! Would be lovely if the hotel could organise a roof terrace or access to an upstairs area for smokers.

    Although we had a confirmation from Booked.net, on arrival at the hotel they had no reservation for us. As they were virtually full this caused us a lot of concern. after waiting for quite awhile they were able to sort us with 2 rooms. The beds are double, which one hardly finds any longer with queen being the minimum standard.

    It was clean and well-maintained. Good location for downtown events.

    It was noisy but I have stayed in many downtown locations and they are all noisy. It was a little older building buy nicely maintained. My room was somewhat small but I shopped primarily for price. The price was avg to lower-than-avg for similar accommodations. No air conditioning but again many hotels do not provide air in San Fran.
