      It was well-located and clean and the staff were very attentive.

      It was definitely not the lap of luxury but for a couple of people on a budget trip it was ideal.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      reasonable comfort at reasonable cost, close to tourist places, good for couples, singles and families.

      Do not take rooms from the street side, can be noisy.

      The Baldwin is a fantastic hotel in a great location for a very good price. After a conference I was stranded in San Francisco for 9 days by the Iceland volcano and needed a relatively cheap place to stay. I stayed in three hotels over that time: The Touchstone Hotel, The Opal and The Baldwin, all for around $60 a night for two people sharing. Of the three, The Touchstone was by far the worst, although still better than a hostel. The Opal was very good for the money, with big rooms, but was a little far to walk to downtown. The Baldwin was the best by a long way; with nice, clean, quiet rooms, nice bathroom, cable TV, very friendly staff and it's literally right by the China Town gates. Would recommend to anybody whether on a budget or not

      Only problem was a noisy radiator on the first night, which the very friendly staff came up at midnight and shut off for me.

      I like the large TV and the bathroom was clean and comfortable. The proximity to Moscone Center was awesome for the conference I was attending.

      There was a lot of activity during the middle of the night with deliveries and trash disposal that woke me up several times.

      The hotel is very cute and quaint in an old-school manner. GREAT location for shopping, eating and Chinatown.

      Beware of the hotel's proximity to the alley that holds all local business dumpsters. It is very loud from 3:45 to 4:15 every morning.

      The ventilation from the next door building made a lot of noise on the 10th floor (top floor). Othervise a good place, nice, clean and great location. There are no supermarket close by.......

      Great location close to union square, downtown shops and within relatively easy distance of fishermans wharf.

      TV remote control secured on a wire flex

      We particularly enjoyed the towel-art that they left behind after cleaning the room. Everyday we would come back to the hotel, wondering what surprise awaited us. The staff was friendly, we liked the old fashioned tub with legs, and the free coffee! The location was excellent as well, as it was right next to the entrance to Chinatown and within walking distance to Union Square. Great hotel for its price.

      It would have been nice to have free internet service.

    • Single
      8.8

      Excellent location and very large and clean rooms.

      Street noise was an issue. Every night the trash gets collected at about 3 am. As my room was on the 2nd floor it was quite noisy. I'd recomment using ear plugs or a higher level room. I suspect that this problem is common to all inner city hotels in San Francisco.

    • Couple

      the location was perfect

      the noise of pipes, heater!!! it was awful from 6am to 9 am ... the noise was so loud that it got me up every day. Good hotel to stay at for a journey inferior to a week. WIFI is charged $ 9/ day whereas it's free in most of the hotels... need to be changed!!!

    • Single
      6.2

      Good location, and the staff were very helpful. I loved the towel animals!

      Just small things that the modern traveller has got used to seeing in city hotels these days: no free internet access, no tea/coffee facilities in the room.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      Location, clean room and helpful staff. Most interesting - everyday, the chambermaid folds towels creatively in shapes of different animals and puts it on the bed.

      The room is rather small for 3 of us. There is no AC but it is fine with us as it is winter. Not sure how it is during the summer.

    • Single
      8.2

      Excellent location. One of the cleanest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. No frills, but you'll be comfortable and in a safe, clean, convenient location. Perfect if you don't plan on spending much time in your hotel room except to sleep.

      very noisy at night and coffee was awful
