Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Cova Hotel

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"High Value, Centrally Located Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Cova Hotel is one of the best-valued hotels I have found in the city. For a solid, well-maintained, freshly renovated, 3 star hotel, they have some of the lowest prices I have seen... which even include a breakfast buffet and internet. Their location is central to San Francisco, and their small size (less than 100 rooms) translates to very attentive service. They have great TripAdvisor reviews. Their accommodations are very basic, but nice. They have a lovely rooftop terrace as well, for any group that wishes to host an outdoor reception of some kind, as well as on on-site restaurant. In general, this is a good find for any group coming to the city on a budget - you get a lot of bang for your buck, with all the benefits of an intimate, well-kept property.

Verified Reviews of Cova Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Good hotel, Bad neighborhood"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel was clean and the front desk staff very helpful. The neighborhood was not very safe, but we did not plan to walk around very much so that was okay. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable however, they did not clean our rooms on the second day. The continental breakfast was very sparse, but there was cereal we could eat. Overall, I would not stay there again though.
