The Powell Hotel hotel description>>

Get what you pay for
Reviewer: San Francisco visitor, Chicago, IL

You get what you pay for, which isn't necesarrily bad. The Powell hotel is what it is: great location, inexpensive, clean rooms. At the same time, there's nothing distinctive about the hotel. The rooms are on the small side. The building is old and a bit stinky. If you're in SF to see the sights and do things, then you can use this place as an adequate launching (and sleeping) pad. For us it was perfect because of the budget (we paid $56 per night in January) If you want a fancy hotel room, look elsewhere. The staff was friendly and helpful, and it's pretty centrally located in SF and near all the public transportation (bus lines, BART from airport, cable cars). Good security in that you can't enter the hotel at night without a room key.

Great location, direct acces to cable car

Hi !Powell Hotel is a nice residence place while Moscone congresses. The direct access to the cable station at Powell and Market streets crossing is a good complement if you want to see great things for few money...Enjoy the small Segafredo Café Powell for a nice breakfast whith a real good double expresso, nice fruit juice and bakery...for those coming from lands where cigarette and strong coffee are a vice of the morning : the street is at a second,- there, you can smoke- with a must see in the city : the cable car ending/starting point. Go to the other extremity for 3 $ and enjoy a great trip to the sea and the Golden Gate...Well, enjoy, have fun and find someone with a car to show you the town at night. Maylers.

I loved this gem!

Great location overlooking the cable car turnaround (I requested a street side window so I could watch the tourists line up). If you take the BART from the Oakland airport or anywhere in the Bay area, there's a major station just steps away. It's withing walking distance to the Moscone convention center, Union Square, Chinatown and the theatres.The rooms are charming; remember this is a converted early 1900s building, so expect architectural idiosyncrasies and smallish, European style rooms. The staff was warm and helpful. I did miss an in-house restaurant but there's a small deli and tons of local eateries to make up for it.
