        I loved the location. I'm a big fan of exploring a city on foot so I really enjoyed staying at Hotel des Arts and wandering the city.

        It was a little chilly.

        The location is good

        The room is small but the price is relatively high.

        No welcome after 25 hr flight, room was not ready, hotel staff had not read our request,room rate was made higher on arrival. In short hotel was more like a shabby boarding house

        Our room was awesome! Not only was there a painted wall, but the whole room was like an installation piece. We stayed in room 307 and adored it. We booked a room with a shared bath, but they upgraded us to a in- room bathroom for no extra charge. The bathroom was great and very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the location was ideal. Great value, super clean, would definitely stay again.

        My boyfriend thought the bed was not very comfortable, but I didn't notice.

        Price. Interesting decor.

        Desk was sometimes cordial and other times almost rude. We asked about policy to leave one day early. The desk person said she'd leave a note for the manager, that she'd told us we could check out earlier than reservations. The next morning, no one knew about this, said we couldn'T. Tv: We pointed out on first night we were there that one channel had no sound and a second had a frozen screen. We were told it would be attended to the next morning; nothing was ever done and, as far as we know, no one showed up to check it out. When we left 4 days later, it was the same. Room 1011

        Artwork is great! This is a nice and very original boutique hotel for the price. Parking at the garage is a few blocks away, but good for the price ($26/day with in-out privileges). Location is great - right in the middle of everything. It's a block away from Chinatown entrance.

        There was an art show going on during our stay which created quite a bit of noise outside our room as we were trying to relax before dinner. Room was small and bed was not the most comfortable. There was nowhere to place any toiletries in the bathroom (except for on top of the toilet seat!).

        Perfect location to explore the city

        The facilities for breakfast; No tables only stool it means you have to sit with your tablet on your knees.We were with four and couldn't have a pleasant brweakfst

        Great place to discover modern art and Aldo a great location for shopping and adventuring, close to Chinatown and union

        Did not like the hold in a different name, I was afraid that someone stole mu credit. Hotel definately needs to for warn guests about the charge, other than that I plan on staying in this hotel again.

        The second time in this hotel, friendly staff, good room and location

        The rooms don't have enough noise proof, it's noise in the street and internal moves.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and the needs of our baby. They were all consistently polite and very friendly. Cool rooms too - really interesting decor, like an art gallery

        No. They were amazing.

        Interesting, unique hotel perfectly situated for stay in San Francisco. Very convenient. Room was clean and had everything needed. Quirky! Old fashioned bath tub in ensuite and washbasin in bedroom. Not a huge room but quite adequate and value for money.

        The hotel was fine but there was a major booking error. When we arrived exhausted from London we found the room double booked. We had booked for 4 nights but could only be accommodated for the last one. However, the staff were very professional and arranged for a room at another hotel for the first 3 nights. This other hotel was also perfectly situated and considerably up-market on Des Art but our booking price was honoured so we ended up better off!

      • Couple
        7.4

        We liked the paintings, even more then a walk in the museum, It was also a very good price.

        We would like a watercooker in the room, to make a evening tea and also cornflakes with the breakfast, There was no airconditiong, so we don't know how the stay could be on a hot summer day

      • Couple
        4.6

        The constant noise, weird smell in bathroom, annoying vibrations caused by people moving around and slamming doors.
