just ok
Close to Golden Gate but thts about it. You cannot walk to the downtown tour area or a shopping centre. A bus is always required. A nice quiet and good-service hotel. I prefer to stay near downtown since you can walk most of places, but it is near enough to get to downtown (about 30 min bus). The building was old as I expected, but good enough to stay for a while. Good internet connection in the room + computer,printer in the common room. A bit pricy.

OK place
A couple of the with washrooms were broken during our stay and it made taking a shower bit of a hassle. Overall OK place if you are on a budget.

Budget Hotel
The Encore Express did the trick while in San Francisco. It was very well priced compared to any other hotel around, but it certainly wasn't ideal. Pros: kept clean, both the rooms and the shared bathrooms were always kept in pretty good shape. Location was fairly convenient with just a couple blocks walk to a bus or cable car that could connect you with most sightseeing areas. Cons: no hotel staff available from 11pm to 9am. No emergency contact number. I had problems with my keycard not working for the first few days, not allowing me into either the building or my room or the bathroom. One night I was locked out after hours with no one to call. Luckily someone from another room let me out there window and into mine so I had a place to sleep that night. This was after a couple hours of sitting in the hall before that happened. Could have been a very long and uncomfortable night. But overall, good for the price, not great ... would look for something else next time I'm in town.

Music in the Basement !
Great place, quite surprised to find there's a music rehearsal space in the basement. There was a great band practiceing while I was checking things out. You can even use it for FREE if you're a guest. The hotel itself was very interesting and quite nice overall. The shared bathroom scenario isn't bad as there are several. Close to Polk Street bars and resturants and a short walk to SWANS Oyster bar, Bobs Donuts, and the California Cable car stop at Van Ness. Great stay for play (music and drinking especially)

Would stay there again
Definitely worth the cost, no frills but not bad at all! Staff very helpful. Walls are thin and rooms could use ceiling fans as the air was a bit stagnant. Shared bathroos were tolerable. Perfect if u plan on spending most of your vacation out and about and just use it to crash.
