The best thing was the position, just near the chinatown gate and union square. The room was clean, comfortable and smelt good.
The elevator very bad, the breakfast room too small and a very poor selection of food for breakfast. strange smell in the corridor.
Location - right in the city and very close to transport and shops.
The first person on the front desk greeted us with "You obviously don't know what time check in is" when we arrived to dump our bags 1 hour early. She then proceeded to watch us struggle with the old style elevator without helping.
Good location, friendly staff, newly-appointed a little basic but everything I needed
Noise carried through too much from adjoining rooms. Breakfast a little basic
Good staff and good Quality service
A bit noise in internal movement.
Location: really closed to Union Square and Chinese town. Rooms with paintings on the wall
Noise : some rooms are really closed to a street which is behind the building, and this street has almost 10 big trashes for all the restaurant around, and homeless people sleeping there. You need to buy ear plugg to sleep well
The drawings in the wall were very ugly and we didnt like them. The stairs and the bathroom size were very short and unconfortable. We stayed one night and change to another hotel. They charged an extra US $ 100.00 for not staying the 3 nights as reserved.
Unique and chic. I was very impressed with Hotel Des Arts. As the Marketing Manager for a small Boutique Hotel in Florida, I always look to support smaller independently run properties. I loved the style, staff, location and especially the Social Media integration. It was nice to see an active member of your staff monitoring social media for guests preferences, and Hotel Des Arts now follows me on twitter! This hotel seems like a place I would love to work! If Hotel Des Arts ever needs a team member (operations, marketing, social media, sales) I would love the opportunity!
Little musty on some floors but smell did not transfer to rooms.
The price we end up pay is double of Internet price..
I liked the location
I did not like the oldfashioned elevator, which was awkward to operate and was very noisy. The Breakfast was very limited and there were no tables or chairs.
Our room was excellent - it was clean, quiet and warm. The staff were also great.
This hotel has a great location. Just in the middle of everything to see. Close to Chinatown, downtown and North Beach. And good restaurants. Also it reminds me the "cachet" of small European hotels with personality.
This hotel is quite noisy. It's sometimes not easy to sleep. You can hear everything going in the room beside yours. I mean everything, even what you don't want to hear! Also, the service quality of staff was uneven. Sometimes they were helpful, sometimes not.
paintings around the hotel and in the rooms
small bathrooms, sink not in the bathroom
Location location location.... And the amazing art on all the walls.
I enjoyed the quirkiness of its art display. I enjoyed the age of the building. My idea would be to display the "building history".
The staircase is very steep and needs great care descending.
The location and proximity to the tourist sights
