Cheap place, you get what you’ve paid for
Very small room, no internet while there and no light in the bathroom on the first night (just a fuse I think) Reno required - and planned for 2019. Service OK, nice location just by Union square.

Other than the elevators being out of order and having to stay on the 8th floor (I was given a 10% refund for this), the stay was fine.

staffs were kind. That's it.
Chinese staffs were so kind. That's it. Nothing to compliment more. They need to deeply think 'are we deserved to receive that much hotel rate?' by themselves.

Elevator not working October 2018--not fixing?
This hotel is being renovated in early 2019 and it shows that it needs it. We were staying on the 4th floor and the elevator was not working--and I'm not sure it will be fixed before the renovation. It is a great location right in front of the cable cars, but the condition of the premises left us wanting. No coffee maker in the room.

Fantastic location, however the pictures used to illustrate the hotel were not accurate, certainly not for the the room that we recieved. Shower curtain didn’t reach the floor, one bedside lamp didn’t work, shelf in bath room looked like someone had attempted to hang it on 10 separate occasions and the window did not appear to close fully. Furthermore, we were not informed until we had been checked in, given our room key for a room on the 5th floor that the elevator was out of service. I had to make 2 trips up and down to take our bags to the room, no assistance offered.
