"Decent hotel in a good location "

We stayed here for 3 nights in April. Friendly check in staff but the hotel is quite dated. The breakfast, although small and limited in choice, was good. Although, I think the hotel was pricey for what it was but that's because you're in San Francisco! I'd potentially stay again.

First time in San Francisco and this hotel didn’t disappoint, it’s exactly what I expected, but what made this hotel for me the The best , was the great friendly Staff and the little touches. Tea and coffee , with fresh cookies are a available 24/7 free of charge . Nothing is to much for the front desk, a big shout out to Mariella for helping me with an Excursion and Bryce for geeeting us with a smiley face every time he saw us . The all you can eat breakfast for $18 incl is the best value for money around , San Francisco is not cheap . The tram stops right outside , great ! In a day and age where everything is cooperate run and all about the money its good to know the chancellor is still family run and it’s all about the guest . Thank you

"Little Gem in Union Square"

Chancellor was a lovely little hotel perfectly located for our weekend trip. Really appreciated the little touches, fresh fruit, baked cookies, water station - even a little yellow rubber duckie for the tub. Rooms are smaller, but very comfortable and surprisingly quiet during the night. Staff was friendly and accommodating, we'll definitely return!

"Great location, decent hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 14, 2019 NEW
Glad we chose this place as convenient location to walk around this great city. Room was small but clean and well appointed. No air con, so this would not be my choice in the summer. Only reason why this hasn’t received top marks was the bar, it was small and a little tired looking. I tried to order a bottle of water to take to my room, but they didn’t sell water and directed me to the local store! First time that happened to me, they really should stock water. They had a water dispenser near the receptionist but not everyone likes cucumber flavoured water. Breakfast overpriced at $18 each, we ate at a great diner 50 yards diw the road, it was cheaper and MUCH better.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2019. Our room was fine - the decor is a touch ‘olde worlde’ but the room was comfortable and clean. The best things about the hotel are: an easy walk (with luggage) from the BART station, on the cable car line, convenience stores close by, a block from Union Square, close to fab shopping, easy walk to the Ferry Building, close to Chinatown, and lots of restaurants close by. The only small thing I mention is that you can hear the street noise, and some music from venues nearby. But not enough to keep you from sleeping. The hotel offers complimentary tea & coffee, apples and cookies - all in the lobby. Very helpful friendly staff. Recommend.
