            • Couple
              7.4

              I liked the location - right near the BART station (Powell) and the cable car station; and the price was more than reasonable. The receptionist was very kind and we were able to check-in 2 hours earlier than we should. The room was big enough (though old-fashioned), and the free wi-fi was working fine.

              The bathroom obviously needs renovation. The hair-dryer died when I was using it (luckily, I was almost finished). It was a bit noisy in the evening outside, but if you're tired it won't disturb you at all :)

            • Single
              8.8

              I like the facilities as well as the location. Where the cable cars begin and end is right at the hotel's doorsteps.

            • Group of friends
              3.2

              Only the location just in front of the tramcar terminal.

              Everthing else was awful !!! The rooms were too small (very tiny) and old. Probably full of bugs (something bite me during the night), the carpets were very dirty, and the heater was broken, and providing a continuous and unsuportable heat, all night long.Defenitly to forget. even the location was unimpropriate (lots of beggins in the area).

            • Single
              7.8

              Friendly personel, great room, free internet.

              No breakfast possibilities other then room service..

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              The geographical situation is excellent. The rooms are clean.

              The rooms are clean but obsolete, they should invest on refreshing the rooms. The price for sf are very correct according the strategic place of the hotel

            • Family with children
              9.6

              David and all the front desk staff were always kind and helpful. I left my cell phone charger their and they had it when i cam to check on this.. Very helpful to first time vistor and close to activities. Front desk staff let me leave my bag their as i had a late flight. Will recommend to all.

              the heat was a bit unpredictable, but i got the hang of it

            • Single
              7.8

              The hotel is pretty basic, no frills. Clean bed, hot shower, free Wifi. And the location is great. Just next to the Bart and shopping district and Walgreen.

              It was a bit old, and it didn't offer free toothbrush/toothpaste and shaver. Not big issues though...

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              Excellent service and location.

              A bit noisy...I could hear everything going on outside my window.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. the location was excellent- accessible to train, bus and cable car stations; adjacent to most stores and shops we love.

              noisy in the rooms fronting powell street

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Convenience to transportation, shopping. Quiet, comfortable, pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. Stayed several times before and will stay there again.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              The location of the hotel was very convenient: close to public transportation, shopping and food.

              The hotel had no record of my reservation, which lead me to believe their system was out dated.

            • Couple
              7.8

              The Powell Hotel is located in the middle of down town at Powell St.. Thus, it is really convenient.

              The heating system is not good. In the last night, it made some strange noise and did not come up. I don't know what happened, and the room temperature could not control myself, which is under hotel heating system, I think.

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              The location is great (if you can handle the noise of the trolly turn around). Also, it is cheaper than many of the other San Francisco hotels. I confronted them about recent posts about bed bugs and they reassured me it had been taken care of. In addition I checked for them and their word was correct.

              The staff had very poor communication skills, and did not feel very professional. My bathroom was not very clean, and there were no extra amenities to the hotel. It is a budget hotel, but for "budget", they mean budget. If you are a college student, or need a fast hotel, I recommend staying here, but not if you are looking for a nice, or semi- nice hotel in the city.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Excellent location. Little but good bar inside the hotel.

              The room stank a little bit of old, but nothing unbearable.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Excellent location with cable cars at front door. Union square, civic centre, chinatown - all walkable. Valet parking is a necessary add-on if you have a car. Nearby stores are shopaholic dream. Price is great value for a comfortable bed, clean bathroom and free wi-fi and coffee. What more do you need?

              Hard to find with one way streets, busy intersections. View of vent shaft from interior rooms.
