    The beds were comfortable in our room. The hotel was in a nice area. Again, the hotel is located just a pleasant stroll away from union square. We appreciated our stay in Carlton, A Joie De Vivre.

    Very good

    Hotel Carlton was very well situated for visiting downtown sf with buses 5 only minutes walk and trams nearby. The hotel is obviously of an age but delightful for it. The the room was clean and comfortable even if the mountainous pillows were a challenge for the neck and a boon for the chiropractor. The front desk were great.

    One let down was the breakfast. A rock-hard bagel and cinnamon twist and coffee is too limited in our opinion as frequent international travelers. Something hot would be nice, but if not at least some chunky muesli, fresh cut fruit and hot toast would be expected, even if the price was adjusted slightly to suit. The restaurant was fully booked for our first night but we were not told that it would be closed for the next two nights of our stay, why so in an 'international' hotel? The meal and breakfast situation aside we enjoyed our stay.

    Great

    Location, easy to get anywhere, short walk from cable cars, bus stops, can't beat it.

    Few things outdated, however all clean, if you just sleep there, you will find it very comfy, staff is very helpful, bathroom big, safe included in the room, bed is huge. And yes, you can hear sounds, but you can hear them in any hotel. Overall - recommened.

    The atmophere was very pretty and the rooms were meticulously cleaned. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

    The location was not in the best neighborhood of San Francisco. The neighborhood was very dirty. I would not recommend this hotel only because of the location.

    Reasonably priced, clean and well kept hotel. Reviews I read prior to my visit suggested it lay within a dubious part of town, but it actually is in an average area of the City. I will definitely use this hotel the next time I visit sf. Probably 10 minute walk from Union Square.

    I loved the bohemian decor, and how the hotel made an effort to be budget friendly and upscale. I also loved the view from my room and how comfy the bed and pillows were. The uber large closet was nice as well.

    $34 to park overnight is a bit steep.

    we liked the staff at the front disk they are very friendly and helpful . the room was tide and clean.

    i did not like the fact they are saying about having an aircon in the room while their not. before i book this hotel it was showing me in the room description that the room is fitted with aircon!! i was really upset when i found out that it is actually a celling fan. another thing was that we were not able to speak at night in our room coz we had an angry neighbor who could hear even our whispers lol and keep knooking on the wall !! .... the street was very noisy too specially after 4am
