No title - expert review
This hotel offers one of the best deals in the city. Formerly a German bakery, this reasonably priced property is surprisingly cultural and stylish. A sleek Asian atmosphere, featuring Asian prints and rattan-style furniture, complements the hotel's contribution to the local art scene-it supports re...

Small, but immensely creative! - user review
Despite having to share a bathroom (just down the hall), our experience at Hotel des Arts was fantastic. Our room was a visual treat, and very fun to come home to. We attended a friday night art opening during our stay where several rooms were available for viewing. All of the rooms were painted, gr...

Will come back for another trip! - user review
I knew what I was getting myself into when I booked the room; nice art, great price, and excellent location, but I didn't expect all the hotel receptionists girls to all be cute. Great location when stumbling in from the bars nearby. The only drawback was the parking situation. Traveler's tip on loc...

Hostel with some pictures called art - user review
I wouldn't call it a hotel. Have seen better backpacker hostels. Breakfast served in the lobby, 3 seats, you feel like on a camping site, classy platic knifes. The rooms are small, run down, mine wasn't painted. The nicest thing about the hotel is their pictures advertising for it. Reality looks dif...

Expected more - user review
Location is excellent with easy walk to Union Sq., Chinatown, No. Beach, and Nob Hill. Needs renovation. Rugs stained & bathrooms not particularly clean. Artwork and location were onl...

Rude service - user review
Service was BAD. The two men who were there had as much personality as a rettle snake. The room was clean, but they need to buy some furniture for the rooms. There was nothing to put your things on, I mean NOTHING. Oh, there was one small chair. Even in the bathroom, nothing to put your stuff on. Yo...

Beautiful in the winter - user review
THis hotel was beautiful and really represented everything we love about SF, however without A/C or even a fan during the summer you are forced to keep your windows open along with everyone else who might have different intentions than sleeping at 3am.. We observed a couple being passionate , drunke...

Hotel Des Arts - user review
This hotel was just great because of all the art. It's not a real high class place. If you want something different though, this is great. We stayed in a room with a private bath as well, which I would suggest... the price wasn't too much d...

Great low budget hotel in San Francisco - user review
This is a great low budget hotel. All rooms are Non smoking with firm beds. Different artists painted each of the rooms, giving them a unique feel. It is funky, bathrooms down the hall, but the price is right and a good value. Good location. Easy walks and buses...

Business Travel - user review
This is a very unique hotel, it is like staying in a trendy art gallery. The parking situation could be better, but what do you expect, this is San Francisco. Very close to China Town where you can get great meals and snacks and browse some really great stuff. You can walk to so many places from her...

Cool Vibe, Low Amenities - user review
This was a really cool hotel with a very eccentric vibe. It's not your typical hotel as it's low on the amenity offerings; however, it is located in a really cool old building and is within good walking distance to a lot of great San Francisco sites. If you're there to experience San Francisco rathe...

Good to go for 1 or 2 nights only - user review
Well located, not too expensive for SFO, don't expect too much quality and confort. Ignore the breakfast unless you like camping... Deco...

Hotel des Arts had gotten very mixed reviews, so I was concerned when I found out this was the hotel I had won. My concerns were unfounded however. I was given what (I think) was the best room in the house: private bathroom, interior courtyard room (no street noise) and clean (no bedbugs). The staff...

My boyfriend recently had an interview in san Francisco and although the company paid for one night where we wanted to stay a couple of extra days to check out the city. We decided to stay at the hotel des arts because it's really affordable. It was so cool to stay in this place. Ive never been in a...

The Hotel Des Arts has a wonderful location, an interesting theme and cordial staff. That said some rooms are lacking not as clean as one would like. The lack of ventilation required us to open the windows (even on the coldest SF night) which let in the noise of jackhammers and a kitchen fan that sh...

This hotel is just a few steps from the gate to Chinatown. While the rooms are basic, the place has a lot of personality and really is a bargain. Very comfortable bed. I also liked the art on display, especially in my room. The only thing that could have been improved was the continental breakfast, ...

We paid a dirt cheap price for this hotel. After reading the reviews online I was really nervious about the condition of this hotel. However I was nicely surprised when we arrived. It was very cool. We had a room with a queen bed, and private bath. The room was painted like we were in the middle of ...

Nice cheap room - user review
For $60 a night, I think you'd be hard pressed to find something better right downtown. The only complaint was that the first room we stayed in had a...

Good enough - user review
This place is good for those who don't want to spend to much. Just don't expect it to be like a Marriott! It's clean, bed is really comfy, and good location to Chinato...

Budget Heaven - user review
If you are a travel sissy who insists on perfect accommodations, this is not the hotel for you. It is small, old, and (in some respects) far from up-to-date. On the...

Impressive! - user review
I was somewhat skeptical about the price I was given--$50/day. It's in the heart of San Francisco, literally a stone-throw from the China Town gate on Bush and Grant. While th...

avoid this place! - user review
I'd only advise staying here if you plan NOT to sleep. There was a really loud party a few doors down until 4:00 AM, and we were right by the front desk so we know the clerk could...

Coolest place in my favorite city - user review
If you want a cool, funky, clean place to stay in the perfect SF location this is your place. We booked one of their Painted Rooms. These are rooms decorated completely by a loc...

European Hospitality - user review
I liked the coziness of this hotel. The staff were kind and accommodating. Although I rented a room without a toilet, there was one just outside my door in the hall. The showers are...
