Great Service and Clean Room

This hotel was in an excellent location. The staff members were really pleasant. The room decor was shabby, the view was non-existant but the bed was comfortable and really...what can one expect for under $100 in SF? I must say that the bathroom was exceptionally clean. I would certainly stay here again. We only slept and showered in the room so it was all that we needed.

Don't stay here.....

The service at this hotel was horrible!! The room was sweltering; we were told they were experiencing problems with their heating, and it could not be turned down. It was 85 degrees inside, 50 degrees outside, but the window only opened 6 inches. When we woke up the next morning, there was no hot water. Again, we were told there was a problem and they were working on it. After waiting over 2 hours for the problem to be fixed we ended up taking cold showers. When we checked out I asked if they were offering a discounted rate because of the problems. I was told they could credit us $3 for the Evian water we drank, but that was all. Of all the places to stay in SF, Don't stay here!!!!!!!

Not so good

The payment plan was confusing. The room was small ( the whole hotel was so small ) I had left a cell phone in one of the rooms and it took 20-30 minutes to see if they had the phone. Then the guy was rude to me when I asked if they were able to send it to me. He was not very helpful to me. I will never stay in this hotel again and if anyone I know is thinking about staying here I will advise them to rethink. So please RETHINK this hotel

Historical Traveller Reviews of Adante Hotel

Clean, Inexpensive, Good Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Good, Central Location - 3.5 blocks from Union Square and in an area with a lot of chic bars (2 blocks from the Clift Hotel). Felt safe - just have to be aware of surroundings.

Rooms - Small but clean. Free Internet in the rooms and free wireless internet in the lobby cafe was a plus!

Price - For $55/night, it was a great deal.

Atmosphere - I agree with the reviewer who said it was "studenty" although I did see some families there as well.

Good location, nice bar

from pingers72
This is an oddly 'studenty' hotel, the little internet bar/cafe is great and the staff are young and friendly and relaxed. The room me and my mate had was pretty small and with a horrible view and very loud air conditioning. The lift takes forever to get to you. It's dead handy for the city though and is just a short walk to Union Square. Not the greatest but for the price it was basically what we expected.

Do you like parrots?

from A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms were clean, bathrooms were clean and roomy, decor was cute (if you like birds). Hotel was within easy walking distance of Union Square and Chinatown in downtown San Fran. Not the safest neighborhood to walk around in at night, but not terrible, either. I stayed with three other girls (20 years old), and we didn't feel too uncomfortable. Definetely recommend to someone who is looking for a cheap place to stay in a good central location.

Good place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from our stay over Thanksgiving (2004). This hotel is in a great location. Close to everything, trolley, shopping, etc. Rooms a little small, but there is soo much to do in San Francisco that we only slept & showered there so didn't matter to us. The front desk staff was very helpful and polite. I would stay here again.

we loved it`

from A TripAdvisor Member
My friend and I stayed here from Nov. 15 to 19/04. The staff was very friendly and helpful booking our city tour and checking things for us on the internet (thank you Asam). Our room was small, but clean and more than adequate and comfortable. The continental breakfast was not much to speak of, but the coffee and orange juice were good and if you like blueberry muffins... that was all they served for the four days we were there. But we really enjoyed getting our coffee in the lobby and then having a bagel next door in the cafe.
The location was perfect, 3 blocks from Union Square. There were a few homeless people around our hotel, but you will find them everywhere in this city. And they pretty much leave you alone. For the price we paid ($56) you can't beat the Adante.

A nice lil hotel

from Gregnemes
I stayed at the adante on october 29th, I got a great rate for 70$, I had no problems checking into my room at 2pm, the staff had my name on the computer instantly and was quite friendly, the room was on the small side, but i actually liked the paintings on the walls, (fish), the bathroom was quite large considering that the room wasn't that large, I loved the fact that the TV had HBO, and that the room was nice and clean, it also had an in room safe and a iron and ironing board. I didn't need to use any of these but it's nice to have just in case, the bed was very comfortable and there was even an extra pillow in the drawers, the close proximity to union square was great, as Ruby Skye nightclub is just minutes away, this room was a great deal and I'm reasonably happy with it, the only negatives are that at 8am there were some homeless people in the alley outside the room (don't expect a view, unless you like looking at walls), who were making an obsene amount of noise, the pressure of the shower isn't all that great, but not bad, and the width of the hallway make it really hard to get around the maids since we checked out right at 12pm, overall I would definitely recommend the Adante hotel to anyone looking for a great price and a great location.

Very incovenient check-in policy

from A TripAdvisor Member
It may be hard to find a cheaper room, but there are definitely some drawbacks on this one. One primary problem is that while check-in is at 3, and while the staff seems to be firm about that, they do not provide a secure place for you to leave your bag. I understand that this is not a luxury hotel, but is it a luxury to have a place to leave your bag? They offer a room on the first floor where you can stash it, but it is unlocked and everyone in the hotel then knows that. We had to walk around SF terrain with our luggage until precisely 3 and, on the day of our departure, were again laden with our bags. I highly doubt that we were the only ones for whom this was a problem and don't see why it couldn't be easily remedied by having the desk attendant walk over and unlock and relock the storage room door.

And while I know that others have mentioned the murals, you have to see them to believe them. It is actually not so much the images (I can live with a tulip cart and an entire seascape on the wall's upper border) but the thickness and dinginess of paint. Our room also had an incredibly stained and disgusting ironing board which really did a lot to turn one off.

The location of the Adante is great; the lobby looks nice; and there are worse case scenarios (actual bugs or theft or completely rude staff). But just know that if you're going to SF for anything other than marathon sightseeing (i.e. if you want to relax in your room at points during the day or have a romantic getaway) you'll be very depressed having to do so in the Adante.

Great little hotel in excellent position

from us2000
We stayed here for 3 nights during mid September 2004.

We booked our room via an online accommodation website, and was a little concerned after reading some of the negative reviews here and in the Lonely Planet Guide. We were quite surprised and pleased with this location. Yeah, there are a few regular street bums and beggars in the area, but its nothing as bad as the big cities on the East Coast of the USA (i.e. Washington DC). Those with the usual street smarts should have no problems.

We arrived late evening of the day of our check in to be told that they were over booked on our room, but proceeded to give us a complimentary upgrade to a king size suite for our first night which was excellent. The remaining two night were back in the actual room we had booked which was quite small, but hey, your in San Fran to experience the city, so our room was just for sleeping. The room was quite old and in need of a renovation overhaul, but it has been clevery disguised with a marine theme paint job and decor.
Be forewarned that there is no air conditioning in the rooms, just ceiling fans.


The staff were super friendly and there is a coffee shop/internet cafe sharing the lobby area. The breakfast is a bit ordinary, which donuts, muffins, juices and coffee on offer, but there are plenty of alternative eateries in the near area.

There is a coin operated laundry across the street, but please note that there is a good chance that a "local" will come in a ask you for a "donation".

Taxis are easy to hail from the street, and its only about $7.60 from the hotel to the Pier 39 tourist area and the ferrys to Alcatraz. For the energetic, its a good walk, but the steep slopes can be quite challenging.

the adante is secretly in the tenderloin!

from A TripAdvisor Member
beware - the adante is right on the border of the tenderloin, which for those of you not familiar with san fran, is the inner city ghetto (we are taking crack pipes and prostitutes). most websites (expedia, hotels.com etc) will tell you it is in union square. the hotel is actually about 4 or 5 blocks from union square, and if you walk one block south you will hit the tenderloin. the hotel itself was ok. the rooms are incredible small. they should be fine for 1 person, but were very cramped for 2. i should mention that the staff at the hotel was extremely friendly and accomidating. the explained the layout of the city and reccommended several sights and resturants etc. also, if you are in town on business (as we were), it is pretty conveniant to the financial district. i would definately not stay there again, but for some the hotel might be ok.

Good location, clean rooms, friendly staff =Great value

from freejune
The Adante was a great value for the price we paid($56).
Yes, the rooms are small but they, along with the bathrooms, appear to be recently updated and are clean. Yes, there are homeless people in the area but there are homeless people all over town. This is not a bad area (two blocks away is) and although we are from a semi rural area we felt safe. There is $15 self parking two doors down. We drove and walked all over town. I thought the Geary Street location of the Adante was a great starting point for touring the city.
We also stayed at the Hyatt Embarcadero for our anniversary night. What a great view of the bay and what a hit on my wallet!

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

see and do Towards the end of February was very rainy, except for the very last week which the weather was in mid 60's. Buses are very reliable and require exact change which is $1.50. The rides are very colorful. Do go see ChinaTown which will take you almost a full day or more to see everything. Fisherman's Warf is anothre good spot. Lots of cheap trinket stores to avoid though. Mama's restaruant in Washington Square/North Beach area was said to have the best breakfast. The line was too long, so I never found out. Golden Gate Park is another thing to see. Japanese Tea Garden is great. $4.00 admission on weekends. The new De Young Museum built in 2005 has a variety of art and includes an awesome observation ower on the 9th floor. 2 complete lower levels of a gift shop are in here as well. San Francisco Art Exchange on Geary Street has a great photographic Rock n Roll exhibit. Great Thai food at the Tom Yum (Lombard Street?). Lots to see and do in this city. Always something new.

Get some hand made truffles from XOX Truffles on Columbus Ave $32/pound may seem expensive, but it's an amazing bargain for world class, artisan chocolate. You will pay double that if you order from XOX's web site, and you'll miss the ambiance of XOX's charming little shop in North Beach. Even if you're not into chocolate yourself, pick some up for friends and coworkers.

Coming from SFO/OAK Airport If you are arriving into SFO or OAK airport please talk the Bart. When I arrived at SFO airport my mother and I grabbed a taxi to our hotel which was in Union Square. The taxi cost us about $40. When we headed back to the airport we decided to take the Bart, which was recommended by a friend, and each of us spent $6.00. Due allow yourself amble time to travel from your hotel location to the Bart.
