Verified Reviews of Hotel Union Square

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Don’t book this place."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Airbnb is supposed to be a fun local experience. This is a grotty hotel albeit near Union Square and Trolly Cars. The price was paid up front with Airbnb but some girl called April whose photo is of a dog and lives in Florida had block booked rooms here and the hotel tried to charge me a Facility Fee and local taxes on top of what I had already paid at check in. I disputed these charges and they waved the charges. The room is boiling hot and the air conditioning is pathetic. In short don't book this place or ever book a hotel through Airbnb.
