  • Michael W review score of 5 out of 5

    Phenomenal deal in a perfect location I didn’t realize when I booked that this hotel was self-service with no staff, but it ended up being wonderful nonetheless. There was phenomenal communication in advance and during the trip about check in, amenities, and checkout and everything went seamlessly. The room was well equipped with coffee machine, lots of plugs, a great shower, a very comfy bed, and even a little balcony. The hotel thought of everything. They leave you a couple of tokens for drinks at the bar downstairs, bottles to fill up in their purified water dispenser downstairs, and have an arrangement with the laundry on the corner to store bags before/after check in. The room was relatively small and oddly shaped, but I found it to be plenty big for one person. If you want to spend time in the Castro at a good price and value privacy, The Hotel Castro is a great option. I will definitely stay again!

    Beautiful Beautiful room and easy to check in and out. Right in the middle of all the fun stuff and easy to travel anywhere. We had a rental car and were entirely confused on where to park it overnight, but we managed.
