Myself and a friend stayed at The Carlton for 2 nights in mid- December 08, and after a long flight from London, we were of course very tired. We found the hotel after a walk from Powell St BART station, if you have luggage, i suggest a taxi, but otherwise, its quite a pleasant walk, and considering you are in SF, its not too steep! The hotel staff were more than welcoming and provided us with a free map of the city and offered an array of excursions and the like. The location of the hotel is superb, just a 15min walk to Union Square, and not once did we feel unsafe in the area. The standard of the rooms was also superb, cleaned everyday and decent views of the city. Only negative was the lack of a minibar (which seemed to be something we never experienced during our visit to the states). I'd recommend this to anyone i know, and on my next trip to San Fran, shall definitely be booking a stay at The Carlton!

I am surprised by the quality of the rooms comfortable and reasonable. The front desk staff were friendliest, helpful people I've ever come across. The property (Hotel) is clean and tidy. The hotel also has a cute restaurant and a computer with internet access, which is very convenient. Service was wonderful, everyone very helpful and friendly. Wine in the lobby every evening is wonderful. Nice opportunity to walk around in neighborhood to discover what it's like to live in San Francisco. It is such a place you will find something different everytime

I love this place! The staff is incredible, the rates are amazing and the wine in the lobby every evening is wonderful. I do not have enough words to describe my fondness for this hotel. I will put up all of my out of town guest here and rest assured they will get the royal treatment for a reasonable price. I almost wanted to pay them more for my stay. Oh and they welcomed my little furry companion and gave her treats!

Pros: Staff, dog freindly, rates, rooms...everything!

Cons: I cannot think of anything

.

clean, safe, nice hotel. Small with a very friendly staff, quaint lobby and clean rooms with good bedding. Great price or the value.

Pros: Location, staff, price and clean, Zaget rated restaurant

Cons: carpent in one room needed to be replaced

Was there weekend 9/28. Service was wonderful, everyone very helpful and friendly. Received great suggestions from front desk as to what to do/places to eat. Enjoyed the travel decor as well as the wine tasting!! We walked nearly everywhere, from union square to chinatown... Would definitely stay there again :)

Pros: Customer Service

.

Stayed there 4 nights, and had a great experience every moment we were in the hotel. Price is reasonable, it is CLEAN and comfy. It's a little off the beaten path, but the bus stops across the street. Buy a 1/3/7-day muni bus pass. (if you have a car in SF, it's actually far more inconvenient if you're trying to get around the city vs. bus). neighborhood looks to be transitioning to a better one. (although it is not horrendous, there isn't much activity from restaurants/bars at night). I never saw any beggars/hookers/etc.... but I did see plenty of them in the "nicer" areas of Union Square where the rooms are 3-4x's the price!! My best advice, keep in mind this is a city, and even in small towns, crime sees NO boundaries. I would not go out strolling at night in many of the neighborhoods in any city.

The Carlton is comfortable, reasonable, quiet and has a great restaurant inside. The staff is friendly and the room I stayed in had a new ceiling fan which was totally quiet, but moved the air around - how wonderful!

Hotel Carlton was recently renovated. The staff here are extremely friendly and polite. Parking was difficult as a parking space was hard to find. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Our room was not soundproof, but it was still relatively quiet. The hotel is in a great location, near the cable cars, restaurants, and shopping.

I decided to book a room for my boyfriend and I because it was inexpensive, but I was completely blown away by how great this hotel is. The front desk staff were some of the friendliest, helpful people I've ever met. They answered every question we threw at them, and their recommendations were top notch. The hotel's decor is breathtaking, and the lobby and room were spotless every day. We missed the wine happy hour, but it's a great service to have included in the already low price. The hotel also has a cute restaurant and a computer with internet access, which is very convenient. I'll definitely be staying here again.

I was very surprised by the quality of the rooms at the Carlton. I had heard about the renovation and decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised. The property is clean, the rooms are comfortable and the price is excellent for a hotel in downtown San Francisco. Appears to be a popular property with international travellers. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only drawback is that the location can sketchy in the evenings and good food options are a few blocks away.

During our recent trip to San Francisco, we spent one night at the Hotel Carlton. Next time we go, we will spend EVERY night there. The location was great, service exceptional, and the decor was beautifully done. We loved it!
Often times hotels look nothing like they do on their websites. This one does.

I would give it a 10 out of 10 if you like Boutique Hotels.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Carlton for 2 nights and would definitely stay there again. The service was better than any place I've ever stayed. The gentleman at the front desk was courteous and extremely helpful (especially when I got lost trying to find the hotel). It's an older place, but it only adds to the mystique. The only complaint is that noise from the hallways travels easily because the walls are a thin. If you're looking for all the updated technologies that most new hotels offer, don't stay here. But if you're looking for a nice, clean and inexpensive place to stay for a few nights, I would definitely recommend staying at the Carlton.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Carlton. The room was on the small side, but very clean and nice. We especially enjoyed the wine hour held in the lobby every evening. It was fun to talk to the other guests and have a glass of wne, or two. It's in a great location, a nice walk to Union Square, China Town and for the adventurous, North Beach. We'd definitely stay there again.

The Carlton is a charming place. At 5 pm, they offer guests a wine happy hour. Usually, a talkative group finds itself chatting and sipping wine in the lobby around that time. Makes it feel a little like a B&B. Our room was small and cute. I liked the elevator with a door that you open yourself - very old school. I found the location to be pretty convenient - but I also enjoy walking. It's a fair distance from North Beach, but not far from China Town or Union Square.

There's a lot to like about this hotel: the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, it's affordable and the happy hour (included) was a very nice touch. It fell a little short only in a few areas. The door to our room didn't seal - it had a gap that let light and sound in. There wasn't a fan in the bathroom. Also, the place is a bit far from Chinatown, North Beach, downtown, parks, etc.
