    Basic hotel but when you are just using it to sleep you don't need anything fancy.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fusion San Francisco

    Great stay and location

    from

    I recently stayed 2 nights at the Fusion Hotel, it was wonderful. Although they do not have air conditioning our stay was delightful, the cool night breeze made sleeping very comfortable. The staff at the Hotel is friendly and knowledgeable. We also recommend a great little restaurant just a few blocks away called Sears.

    Loved the Fusion

    from

    Although the Hotel Fusion is small and the original building is old, it is a wonderful place to stay. It has recently been renovated, so everything is super clean and new. And it has a sort of modern Asian theme to it that begins in the lobby and continues on up into the rooms. Very unique.

    The staff members are marvelous. Good humoured and incredibly helpful. There's also a complimentary breakfast . . . okay, it's toast and muffins, but it's great to know that you won't have to waste time looking for a restaurant that serves breakfast when you really want to go out and see the sights as soon as possible.

    Finally, the hotel is located right near Union Square, so there are all kinds of attractions within walking distance.

    I give it two thumbs up!

    Bare-bones hotel but very clean

    from

    Hotel Fusion has very basic rooms but they look renovated, they're clean and the hotel is in a good location (near Union Square). I stayed there only one night and it was during the week. My room was tiny -- it's like they put a desk next to a bed and built walls snuggly around it. There isn't a lot of counter, sink or desk real estate, just a little closet and a desk -- no dresser, fridge, miny bar, etc. Like I said, bare bones. But the size wasn't really an issue with me. The cleanliness more than made up for it. My room had a flat screen TV and coffee maker, both of which sat on the desk. The continental breakfast was blueberry muffins, toast, nasty coffee (the one in the rooms was better) and watered-down orange and cranberry juice. Also, the walls were kind of thin so you could hear people walking in the hall and talking on the phone next door. Try to get a room not facing the street or on the 5th floor (where they have the breakfast bar set up). Service was great, really friendly. For $100 in San Francisco, I thought this was a was great value.

    Lovely staff, nice clean hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Fusion for 4 nights and found it good value. It is in a really good central location, v close to the Powell St Cable Car turnaround, and also v close to the train line that goes straight to the airport (easy and cheap - $5.50).

    Our room was lovely: very clean, comfortable queen bed, flat screen tv, and nice clean bathroom. The only downside for us was that there is no airconditioning (though there is good heating if you're worried about winter). We found it a bit stuffy to sleep with the windows closed, so after the first night we left them open. This was fine as there wasn't much traffic/street noise (the rooms face into a centre square so no walls or windows on the street side).

    The free breakfast is quite simple - muffins, toast, juice, tea & coffee - but a nice litte extra that we were not expecting.

    The best thing about the hotel was the lovely staff. Richard the concierge recommended great places to eat and details on how to get there. Mindy at reception was also lovely, and very obliging.

    BTW, strangely when we tried to book direct through the hotel's own website it said there was a minimum stay of 1 week, so we booked through expedia and it was fine.

    Great Deal!!

    from

    I stayed at the Hotel Fusion twice in June. (I left the city for a few days to visit Wine Country.) I had too differnt rooms both were interior. Yes, the rooms are small, but no smaller than other boutique hotel rooms in San Francisco- you're not in the room much anyway. My rooms were VERY clean and the staff is VERY helpful! Most importantly, you can't beat the location for the price. It's close to Union Square and the cable car turn around. I found cheaper rates on Expedia than on their web site and they matched Expedia's rate. If you rent a car, you can easily park it a short walk away at the Ellis and O'Farrel garage. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend it to friends.

    Not bad at all

    from

    I got a pretty decent prize, and liked the hotel quite a bit. I was there only one night but was happy about the stay. Room was a little smaller than I expected but was clean and new. They have all the amenities like a fridge ,coffee machine, etc. The bellman is also helpful and knowledgeble.

    My only complaint, they should have a vending machine on site. I had to go around a block to buy a bottle of water.

    But I'll probably go back

    Good value place to stay

    from

    I stayed at the Hotel Fusion for 4 nights and truly, this place is a great find! The location is fantastic, with great restaurants, diners and a whole variety of places where you can get good,decent take-out. Cable car stop is just right around the corner and just a short walk away is the San Francisco Shopping Centre, along with other big-name brands like H&M and Forever 21, Sephora, etc. I will definitely consider putting up at this hotel when I'm next in San Franciso!

    Well located hotel

    from

    The Fusion is well located, a block from Hallidie Plaza with its metro station, tourist office and terminus for the cable car. My room was generally comfortable, with a flat screen television. However there was no sign of Internet service (for which the screen would have been very suitable). The bathroom had a good shower, but the toilet set was unusually small by European, never mind American standards, and the toilet roll holder was positioned to prevent you sitting on the seat!

    My room lacked the usual set of intructions about facilities. This proved inconvenient, as I had a problem with my phone.

    A reasonable option for San Francisco.

    What a relief

    from

    After reading negative comments about this hotel I was pleasantly relieved. It has had a makeover and the room was comfortable. Breakfast in the morning for free is a plus. The staff was friendly. The only bad thing was that as I was packing up, I looked under the bed and found 2 items (nongross) that were not mine - left over from a previous occupant. The towels were soft, bed was great. I would stay again

After a couple hours of dancing, Brian and I searched out a cuddle puddle impersonator. We found a tent marked for kids, a play place geodome with bean bag chairs. We cozied up, were asked to move only once to make room for a kid to jump, and stayed hunkered down. After an hour or two, the scout table ...

    After being woken up by an earthquake the night before and not sleeping from 3.20am until 5am (thank you Friends for always being on TV in SF at pretty much anytime during the day!) we left the hotel and went to Ihop for breakfast. Great place, very popular I would say as once again we had to wait for a table (short wait) and the place was busy. I cannot get over the menu with steak and chips/onion rings (!!) but we went for something more traditional - ...
