Nice hotel with some foibles

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Centrally located, friendly staff, rooms with character, and quiet.
Cons: Fix the bathroom so that the toilet seat stays up.
Location: Centrally located to Union Square, Financial District, Chinatown and North Beach.
Overall my experience staying at this hotel was good. Its was clean, the rooms had character, and it was a comfortable place to stay. I did take issue with the fact that the toilet seat did not stay up in my room however. It was pretty annoying and would make me think twice about staying there again.

Nice downtown hotel with unique charm.

Awesome hotel. The staff was amazing, especially Jeff at the front desk who was extra helpful. The rooms are clean and quaint. If you plan on sitting in your room 26 hours a day, it might feel a little small. But if you want a comfortable place to sleep and be close to everything, this place is it.

Wonderful staff

Posted Jun 10, 2015
The staff at this hotel are great! Everyone, from front desk to cleaning lady are super friendly. The rooms are a little small. But I think that's how it is in the San fran area. :). The hotel is clean. Very close to union square, Bart station, and cable cars. Free wifi. Would def stay here again.

La ubicación del hotel es magnífica Es un hotel antiguo genuino !! La habitación es pequeña pero comoda sólo que en mi opinión le falta un poco de mejor ventilación ! La ropa de cama y baño podrían ser mejores !! El bar está muy agusto y acogedor !! En general claro que me gusto mucho y me gustaría ustaría volver !! Gracias !!

Quirky hotel, fantastic location, expensive

Posted May 18, 2015
The location couldn't have been better for getting the most out of San Francisco. The hotel itself had OK food, was clean and had a decent room size. The staff were excellent, but the fun part was the bar and the incredibly fun and characterful bar staff (especially Mac!), helped somewhat by 'wine hour' when guests congregated for a free drink and inevitably got chatting. I wouldn't need a hotel with better facilities, but I'd prefer to pay less.

Nice Hotel

Posted Apr 30, 2015
Pros: Very quaint hotel with attentive staff and perfect location.
Location: Great location. Right in the heart of everything...shopping, food, and short walk to Chinatown or Financial District.
The Rex Hotel is a very nice hotel if you like something quaint with a historic feel. It was very close to good shopping, Nob Hill and Chinatown. The staff were very nice and i would stay there anytime. It is a safe location within 1 block of cable cars and public transportation.

Perfect Location

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: It was a fairly big room for SF and the staff was very welcoming and kind.
Cons: There was a limited array of soap? Perhaps I am spoiled by chain hotels, but there was very little soap...
This hotel is a great place to go if you have the intention of walking everywhere that you want to go in SF. The central location is perfect and there are plenty of great restaurants right around it.

Nice place in good location

Older building with somevold building quirks. Those quirks fit with the ambiance. I really enjoyed my stay.
