          • Family with children
            6.2

            convenient to china town, short walk to northbeach area

            room very small; plumbing loud

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            The staff of Grant Plaza hotel is friendly and well behaved.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            I liked very much the location.

            maybe what I will change it is just the colour of the walls it was depressive a little.But everything else was good

          • Single
            6.6

            Location is fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful

            The bath had several long pieces of hair in it and I had to ask twice before it was cleaned. My room was small and rather dark with one very small window in the room facing an internal outdoor unused space. No sunlight came in at all making it feel damp and cold.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The hotel location central down town close to the main Touri sites such as Fishermen warf, business center, China town, littel Italy is very convenient and given this, the rooms are not noisy due to nearby traffic at least from 8 pm onwards.The rooms are clean and provides all necessary (basic) amenities. There is not that much space in the rooms however that is normal for a hotel of this category downtown of such a city. Good value for money. It is worth it.

            Basically there are not complaints: breakfast are not included however you will find several excellent cafes just few steps round the corner for any tast.

          • Couple
            6.2

            The amability service.It's a correct hotel relationated quality-price.It's clean.

            The beds and baths are so small if you haven't got Chinese's size.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            The room was clean, but I did not like the bedding that was used.

            The front desk guy was not very helpful or polite. He was "smurky" about the fact that I didn't know how to get around in San Francisco and felt overwhelmed by the one way streets and the speed of everything in the city. I didn't like that attitude and would not stay there again. There was no ice machine that we could find and we were hungry, but too tired to go out (couldn't walk one more hill !) and if there was a way to get something to eat very near by, we were not aware of it and I didn't want to ask that front desk guy (that didn't go well the first time)

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Location

            WiFi is freaking not working!! They told us that the problem was our computer...Tried both with a Mac and with a Windows laptop...of course none of them was working, even after disabling the firewall (that is what they suggested).

          • Single
            2.4

            nothing....I had to pay again even though I paid online when I made the booking....not sure what happened but I am in the process of investigating with my credit card company.....But management was rude.........

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Strong noise from the street all night long

          • Single
            8.2

            The accommodations were rather Spartan, nothing fancy, but they were clean and safe. Good enough. The best things were the price and the location.

            The WiFI had a very low signal and sometimes limited connectivity.

          • Couple
            4.6

            The location

            The room are really small and the bed is small...even for European standard

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Location, location, location was the best for tourning the San Francisco area. The staff went out of their way to be accomidating at all times. The rooms were clean and comfortable. .I will definately stay their again.

          • Single
            7.8

            The location is very nice. It is just inside Chinatown, and it is easy to go to financial district and union square. The elevator is also larger in better condition compared to most hotels at the same price range.

            It is not easy to find cups, for drinking or teethbrushing. I didn't find one in my room, but I heard someone did find one in his room.

          • Single
            4.2

            The hotel was in a good location.

            It was small, old and in need of renovation!!
