    The only problem is the walls are very thin and our room faced the street. So you could hear people talking outside and there were a lot of sirens!

    Finally a hotel that provides good value for money with comfort level normally found in hotels that cost 30 to 40 % more per night. I will be staying at the Halcyon on my future travels to SFO.

    The staff I met, Wendy and Lucy were both welcoming and helpful. A real asset to the business.

    Four flights of stairs!

    At the time of booking, we knew that this hotel was not a five star, but the hotel itself was nothing as discribed and nothing like the pictures on the Net. We were put in a ground floor room that was very hot(boiler right underneath us), when we spoke to the night manager about this-- nothing was done and no one ever got back to us.The windows would only stay open if a piece of wood was put under it, and even though it was terribly hot, we could not have left the window open, as there were homeless people sleeping right under our room. There was no bathtub(as discribed)and the shower--which was right in the room, had no door for any privacy. The small kitchenette, that the room was supposed to have, was not even there.

    Location is excellent. Room was not too noisy. Price very good.

    The room was very small, bathtub could be renewed.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The staff were friendly and helpful and there are several food stores and restaurants within 100 yards.

    Our room was very cramped and there was just enough space to turn around in the bathroom. If someone is sitting at the desk you have to climb over the bed to get to the sink and fridge. It was much smaller than room photos on the website. As a single room it would have been ok. This is a good hotel for a stopover or two or three night stay but no longer unless you are single, on tight budget or you are able to pre-arrange a larger room.

    Not suitable for late-check-ins as there's no front desk. Hotel was near a nightclub and we went on a weekend so it was noisy late into the night. Despite the weather, they didn't have air-conditioning so it was terribly warm in the room. Toilet was very small and basin had 2 separate taps for hot and cold water, how does anyone use that? Shower's water temperature would also fluctuate constantly to extremely hot and cold. No elevators so avoid going with large baggages, made the mistake of not checking before I booked the place. We drove 8 hours from la and arrived late, didn't know how to get in and called the night manager on duty for help. It was around 1am so I wasn't surprised he sounded irritated but seeing my boyfriend and I, decided not to help us with our luggages up 4 flights of stairs. Staff attitude was poor as we aired our grievances, wasn't apologetic at all and didn't do anything else to help alleviate the situation or help further, instead explained that it is the norm in San Fran, tried to push the blame to us instead.

    Price is good, 79 bucks a day

    No lift at all! It's a 4 storage building! And I'm forced to move everyday from one room to another to make the space for other "long-stay" visitors. No front desk after 5:30 pm. We have tried for more than an hour to reach the hotel manager to get the wifi password. The hotel is noisy and the facilities are old.Considering the price, it's still ok. But there are bunch of better hotels near union square.

    In general, hotel and facilities were quite good. If you don't mind putting up with rude and unhelpful staff, hotel is quite good.

    Hotel staff quite rude - not helpful at all. Any request seemed to be too much trouble.

    The location was nice, good value for money.

    The room was not perfectly clean, but nothing gross

    The hotel is quaint and the decor of the rooms is fantastic. I especially loved the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and overall the room was lovely and met all our needs.Security is tops and we felt safe is in the area. The location is fabulous. Right on the doorstep of the city area. Can walk very easily all around the different districts of San Francisco without hurting feet at the end of the day! The staff were wonderful and very helpful. Andrew and I would definitely stay there again without hesitation. Fully recommend this hotel.

    Elevator would be handy, especially when you have been travelling for almost 3 months and have several bags to hoist up 4 levels!

    It was convenient

    Size of bathroom was too small, there was a constant drip from the shower.

  • Couple
    4.6

    It was similar to a studio apartment. It was nice to have access to a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc.

    There were no extras at this hotel. No iron/ironing board, no a/c, no pool. Laundry service was only available after 6, front desk was only available before 5:30, internet was an additional fee and required a call to the manager to gain access. We stayed 3 nights and never received maid service.

  • Older travelers

    fine central location to transport, food, walking

    front room 202 on street was noisy from fire engines, police and pedestrians

  • Family with children
    10.0

    It was convenient to shopping, touring, and restaurants. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Each of the ladies that we spoke with offered detailed information and assistance on any question we asked including shuttle service and directions.

    The only thing that I did not like about the hotel was that they did not bring fresh towels daily. However, they did offer for us to come and get them but we usually returned to our room after the office was closed.
