The hotel itself is very old but that's because it's been around forever, very clean regardless of age showing. Valet was quick, check in was fast as well, check out was a little slow but that was fine. I have to say this place was fine but my only complaints are that parking ended up being $43 dollars. So you think you're paying less for the hotel but calculate that, plus the room tax and you're paying easily 65 dollars more a night. The bed was not comfortable, and the toilet was on a pedestal which was weird but again, that's part of the charm of the building I suppose. I was fine with my stay and it was quiet but I won't be back unless I have no other option. Staff was fine, hotel was fine, just not worth the price.

We were very impressed by the hotel itself, the staff's friendliness and helpfulness and the comfort of the room...the bedding is to die for. It's central to everything in the city too: the infamous mall is right next door, Market street is a block away and the we boarded the cable car right across the street to ride to the wharf. Would recommend the Pickwick to anyone!!

The staff at the hotel is excellent and accommodating. The hotel is dated, but reasonably priced. It is within walking distance of downtown San Francisco. The only drawback is the neighborhood -- very close to many shelters and services for the homeless population, so you will see many homeless in the neighborhood. We had no problem with the area and felt safe and secure at the hotel. They also have parking for an additional fee which was very reasonable for the downtown area.

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly. The rooms are well-off, but the bed is too hard, did not sleep well these nights.
The food is interesting, as have many Chinese guests, the buffet contains enough Chinese cuisine, just as the traditional American breakfast.
Must solve a problem with the current in the rooms: The air in the corridor (cold) slides under the front door, this becomes a problem at night. I used towels to close the air gap.
Getting to Market Street is simple, you only walk half a block. Perfect for street tourism makes, everything is within walking distance: The famous Startups, theater, museums, also stops for the metro and tram stops.
