Positive Reviews

It's in a great location

Previous guests were pleased to find that Hotel Des Arts was within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and bars, as well as the BART station and ferry terminal, which removed the hassle of dealing with driving on the crowded San Francisco streets. Reviews also noted that the area is well lit after dark.

The decor is amazing

Each room is uniquely decorated with murals painted by artists from all over the globe, and many more paintings line the hallways and lobby. Reviews described it as a unique experience, and previous guests loved roaming the hotel taking in all of the artwork.

Excellent customer service

Previous guests agreed that the employees at this hotel display exemplary customer service, particularly when it comes to giving directions and recommendations for things to do in the area.

Negative Reviews

The breakfast selection is lacking

The hotel serves a breakfast each morning that they describe as "light continental". Several previous guests found it to be a bit too "light" for their taste, and would have preferred a wider selection beyond the bagels, toast, and fruit they serve.

The rooms lack soundproofing

Many guests described the walls at Hotel Des Arts as extremely thin, and several reviewers reported being kept up at night by the sounds of their neighbor's TV and conversations.

It can get a little toasty

The rooms at Hotel Des Arts do not have air conditioning, and are instead cooled by small fans and by opening the window. While this seemed to suit guests fine most of the year, those that stayed in the peak of summer found it uncomfortably hot.
