    Historical Traveler Reviews Edwardian San Francisco Hotel

    Wonderful place


    All though I was a late to check in , the staff was prompt and courtesy, during my stay he stuff was always attentive , my room was always clean. Just a great place to stay.

    Awful, do not even think about staying here


    I booked here through a travel agent, and only because there was no availability in any "known" hotel chain. I thought that this might be a charming little boutique hotel -- instead, it's a complete dive. 2nd floor rooms (at least 8 of them) all share 1 bathroom, which had a broken toilet the night I arrived. No A/C, odd smells, single-pane windows that let so much noise in you might as well be on the street. There's a Travellodge kitty-corner, stay there instead, at least you'll get your own bathroom.

    Awful. Steer clear of this hotel!! Dirty rooms & rude staff!


    RUDE & very unpleasant staff the moment you walk in the door. Rooms are small, dark & dirty. Bed & pillows stained and look flea infested. I would rather sleep in my car than spend a night here. Very skeptical of "Excellent" reviews given. Probably bogus. DO NOT RECOMMEND, EVER!

    2 1/2 stars? More like 1 star at best


    I booked the room via an internet service. The hotel was given a 2 1/2 star rating out of 4 by the service I used as well as the other online services I didn't use. I usually check prices at different sites plus some are better then others in their description, photos, etc. The hotel in my opion should be given a 1 star or 1 1/2 at best. I've not stayed at a 1 star hotel but can't imagine they could be any worse then this place.

    I stayed on 01/22/05. The room was small with no closet. The carpet looked like it was best to leave your shoes on. The bedding was dirty and the bathroom while clean was cold, had painted windows (no shades), a toilet that didn't exactly flush and a sink/mirror area that had indirect lighting. I booked a queen size bed but it turns out that queen means full at this place.

    The hotel is old. Nothing wrong with that and indeed if a little cash was spent on updating it, it could be quite nice. The deal breaker had to be the lack of heating. The hotels age did come into play when it came to heat. The room was heated with an old steam? radiator heater that had no way for me to adjust it. Winter in SF may not be all that bad but there's nothing worse then being cold when you're trying to sleep and paying for it.

    I don't blame the hotel. I'm not sure how hotels are rated but had my expectations been set appropriately, I would not have had anyone to blame but myself for booking a 1 star hotel.

    Liked it!


    Stayed three nights in this hotel.

    First in Room # 15. Is was a bit smokey because the chimney of the restaurant next door. Later I moved to room 42. Great room with nice bathroom, though a bit noisy (but after all SF is a city). Got a complementary whole bottle of good Californian White Wine at arrival. Neoghbourhood is great for walks to the Mission or downtown - many public transport possibilities and free parking.

    Had a great time


    i stayed at the edwardian hotel from 3-31-04 t0 4-6-04 and thought the staff was great . the couldnt do enough for you. it was centraly located only blocks from castro and had both street car stops and metro stops . i always felt safe and i came in late some nights . i would not only recomend this hotel if you want a nice hotel at a good rate , but i would stay there again on my next trip.

    Fabulous hotel with a European charm.


    I booked a room at the Edwardian Hotel for my parents visiting me from Europe for their anniversary. They were very satisfied with their stay.

    The hotel was fabulous, nicely decorated, very clean and quiet, reminds me of a boutique hotel in Paris. The service is professional, friendly staff, the location is central and right next to public transportation, one of the best small hotels my parents stayed in, I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a great deal.



    I took my wife there in the summer of 2003 for a conference. I was so embarrassed! Bad smells, wornout, used furniture from Days Inn, one of our towels was actually from a local gym with the logo on it. We got the run around about the room as well. We booked a queen and got a double. Opened the window to get fresh air and got the room filled with smoke from the bar and grill downstairs. Homeless all over, some looking at porn on the open sidewalk. Got back one night in time to catch someone peeing on the wall by the entrance. The room above us must have been rented by the hour if you know what I mean. We got suckered by the internet on this one. There is more, but why go on? I agree with the other review about the nice young lady that did her best and was very nice to us. Sad thing is, I think she was embarrassed also.

    Don't stay at the Edwardian - you will regret it


    This is one of the most terrible places we almost stayed in and we have

    traveled all over the world. We choose this hotel because it seemed

    very romantic and centrally located through hotels.When we arrived,

    after bringing in all our bags and paying for parking the clerk

    informed us that he had not received our reservation from hotel. He

    said this happens all the time. As he was shuffling through papers, I

    noticed our name on a paper in a folder which he proceeded to grab away

    and place under the desk and would not let me see it again and

    pretended like he did not know what I was talking about. This guy, who

    said his name was David was extrememly rude to us. He spoke to us in a

    condescending manner, telling us this same thing happened to him in

    Europe and there were no hotels left in the entire city as this was

    Valentines eve.While on the phone with Hotel claiming he was going to

    straighten the whole situation out, he suddenly remembered another room

    he had. He offered us a room with no bathroom, as we had reseved for

    the price of $139. We looked at the room and it was skeevy, filthy, and

    stunk like urine, mold and stale cigerettes. We said we didn't want

    that room. He kept saying he couldn't get through to hotel and that for

    a price he could hook us up at the Ramada. This sounded very sketchy

    and he kept referring to my husband at "my friend" and acting as though

    we were there on some kind of illicit business. This was Valentine's

    night and we were very tired and just wanted to begin some romantic

    time together. This guy and situation, needless to say, did little for

    our romantic mood and made me feel like crying. We went outside and I

    stood with the luggage, while my husband went and got the car. A crazy

    homeless was harassing me too while I was waiting. We drove around and

    found a wireless internet connection to find another hotel, I searched

    on line and he made called. Eventually, after about an hour or two of

    searching we found a room at the Mosser. This place was great and

    although we had heard the rooms were small they may be by american

    standards but by European/New York standards they were tremendous. The

    staff at the Mosser was wonderful, the rooms clean, modern and

    interesting. We had a great time there after that drama at the

    Edwardian. I was so mad, I actually called the guy and asked him to

    apologize to me but this guy must be rude to plenty of people because

    he thought I was somebody from 2 weeks ago and then a current guest and

    he never did apologize. Save yourself the heart ache. Don't stay at the

    Edwardian...and don't book with Hotels. They were not very helpful

    Left San Francisco at 8.30am on a beautiful, clear, sunny morning for our drive to Yosemite. It was a surprisingly warm day. On arrival at the lodge we took an orientation bus tour. It lasted 2 hours and took us to various vista points to see some of the main attractions. We saw El Capitan, Merced River, Half Dome, Catherdral Spires, the upper and lower Yosemite Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. Dinner at the Yosemite Falls food court followed by a drink outside the ...

He drove us to our hotel and we were greeted by a man to take our bags to our room. We checked in and a lady call Carina at the front desk was very helpful. She gave us the code for free wifi so that we didn't have to pay for it. She also couldn't get us a ...
