    Fabulous

    The best thing about the hotel is its location, it's almost opposite the Civic Center BART station (5 mins walk). It's on the Market Street and 10 mins walk from the Westfield Shopping Center which is on the same street. The union square is also within the walking distance. There is a light rail station right outside the hotel, the light rail can take to places like China Town, Pier 39, San Francisco Bay etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful, 24h reception, and airport shuttle, car rental can be booked with the hotel. I stayed here for 4 nights and I quite enjoyed my stay. The room I stayed in is double en suite, and it's generally clean and tidy.

    My room is not equipped with kettle, had to pop up to the shops to get drinking water. The TV only has a few channels and only two of those were English-speaking channels. The hotel is really just for those who seek somewhere to sleep.

    I am a very dissatisfied customer since. The reservation was messed up original request. The customer services were not pleasant. Other customers who were coming for the SF Pride Weekend Event was also displeased that there room reservations were so screwed up. I requested two beds. We requested two beds in one room; instead we ended up with a double bed. Later they call to say they would give upgrade to add an additional 50.00 for two beds, with private bathroom which my total would go from $75.00 add an additional 50.00 cost on top of my original total $75.00 +55= 120.00. I certainly am not interested in accommodating the service of the hotel. I am the customer. The customer care experience was unsatisfactory.

    Good

    Good, affordable hotel for visitors to San Francisco. Sufficient value for money, a good place for excursions to the city, exploring the city. I especially recommend a young person who at a low cost travel around the world. I met young people from around the world: the Czechs, Ukrainians, Japanese, Koreans, French, Americans.

    Better quality toilets (but the U.S. standard)

    it was worm, the heater was working well

    the room was dirty, under the bed and behind the vanity was full with so many horrible things - such as old and dirty underware, leftovers food, etc...the bathroom was with no sinc, the sinc was in the room, the toilet seat did not have a cover top. the smell in the whole room was awful.

    The location of the hotel was hard to beat, especially for the price. You're right next to a bart stop (Civic Center), so it's easy to find and has great access to downtown San Francisco, as well as multiple forms of public transportation. You will see lots of young travelers there for the affordable, hostel accommodations, though our room included a private bath (ensuite). We did not experience any nasty critters (no roaches, bedbugs, lice, mice, etc.). The plumbing was satisfactory, and although all plumbing fixtures were very old, the tub looked fairly modern.

    The Aida Plaza is on the lowest end of acceptable. The room and building are ancient. The location is mid-southeast on Market St., and I did not feel very safe walking to the hotel late at night. There are many unsavory characters walking around, so prepare to be begged frequently. The sink was primitive, with separate hot and cold handles, and it lacked a countertop. About half of the towels provided had permanent stains on them. The wireless internet did not reach the room - everyone there had to use their computers in the lobby.

    Very good

    I loved the music they played, it was from the 20's 30's. This hotel reminded me of the Shining. I loved our attendant, whom we named "Mr. Rorke".

    The hotel itself was budget, but very friendly. The location was horrible, I'm glad I made it out alive!

    the location was very good and the hotel was cheap.

    However, I regret the parking was so expensive.

    Fabulous

    Staff is friendly, esspecially the nice receptionist :-)hotel is oldfashion, -has charm! Bed was very comfortable. Really can recommend this hotel, if you just need a place to sleep and you have certain budget. Saturday night can get pretty noisy, because there is a club close by- but I did not feel bothered. Walking distance to everything- both thumbs up!!! Internet only works in the lobby, but that is fine- like this you don't spend to much of your holiday behind the laptop. I had a great stay there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
