Hotel was surprisingly nice as we were expecting a budget hotel. Common areas and rooms are well designed and have an upscale bouticy feel. I had issues with the fact that our room did not receive any natural light so it was impossible to know if the sun had risen. I felt like in a dungeon. My partner did not have any issues with this. My suggestion, don't get the most basic room.
Great hotel! Tonga restaurant was very good. Our room was very nice and clean. The best part about the room was the bed. It was very comfortable. The only downside to our room was the air conditioning. It was a little warm in the room. When we arrived the air was set to 65 but the room temp was at 75. We asked the front desk to have someone to come look at it when we went out for dinner. When we came back the room temp was still at 75. Also the sink in the bathroom was a little clogged. Overall the hotel is excellent and location is nice too close to everything. Would definitely stay here again.
Nice hotel for considerably less than large brands nearby, easy walking to BART, MUNI, and cable cars at Union Square. Upscale furnishings, but it is a boutique hotel, so don't look for huge exercise areas, lobbies, coffee shops, etc.
Got a deal on Expedia for July 3rd!
Friendly greeting at service desk, complimentary wine, voss bottles, chips and granola bar. Room was so clean in a queen deluxe. 3rd floor facing the street, but wasn't too loud. AC unit was so great. People said walls are thin, but its typical for a boutique style building. Water pressure in bathroom was great. The bed is so comfortable! I highly recommend this place!
"Better than expected...perfect San Fran experience"
We stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Nikko on the 20th floor ("Nikko Floor"). Upon arrival, we asked for two queen beds, instead of a king, and they changed our reservation with no problem at all. We were totally impressed by our large, spacious room with an INCREDIBLE city view. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very large, modern bathroom with a tub separate from the shower. Beds were super soft, and comfortable; we slept like babies with minimal noise from the city/other guests. Hotel Nikko is situated nicely with the perfect amount of distance from Union Square and the BART. Very short walk to the F-train (trolley), bus stops, and cable cars. We walked to Chinatown. Housekeeping cleaned our room twice a day and even left chocolates on our pillows. Room was immaculate the entire stay!!! All in all, we will definitely stay here again, on our next trip to this amazing city. I highly recommend this hotel!
Everyone we encountered was very helpful.
I read reviews about having to wait a long time for the valet service to bring your car to you. They warned us it could take 25 min, so to plan ahead. It only took 10.
They only thing that would have made it perfect woul be to have a fridge in the room and a breakfast of sorts.
We will be back. Its a very cool looking hotel...
We actually were able to walk everywhere. If you like walking up and down steep hills. Use your google maps app to help navigate around the city.China town is really close.
Flagship stores ring Union Square, among the vanguard of West Coast retail. Chinatown begins at Grant Avenue and Bush Street, while Gold Rush-era mansions crown Nob Hill. South of Union Square, the convention center area includes the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Cable cars turn around at Powell and Market streets to head back to Fisherman's Wharf.
