"Three nights in San Francisco!"

The Cova Hotel is a lovely well run hotel with friendly staff and all the amenities you need for a short stay in SF. A special mention for the bar man (can't remember his name) who served free wine between 5pm and 7pm each evening - a very welcome treat after a long day of sightseeing As other reviewers have said, the hotel is not in the best of areas but despite there being many homeless people living on the streets around the hotel they were not threatening and did not even try to approach you as you walked by. Would definitely recommend as a base for a few days in SF.

Nice hotel in a fair price. Good size rooms and friendly staff. Hotel is clean modern and comfortable. Nice rooftop with free wine from 6 to 9 pm. Good standard breakfast. Very centric Near the Asian Art Museum, SFMoma, City hall and Performance Centers. The only problem is that the neighborhood is occupied by homeless people and that’s a very sad experience.

"Great customer service in hotel."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 07, 2019 NEW
The extras are so fun. They had free wine, a fun rooftop bar, cool signs to take pictures with and the rooms were nice. The tenderloin district is definitely not the nicest part of town, but we did not have any issues at all. The hotel takes extra measures to make sure their guests feel safe inside. The lady running the breakfast was extremely rude, but if you just ignore her every single other person there was SO friendly!!!

I recently stayed at the Cova Hotel from June 25-29. I was surprised how clean the hotel is as a first impression and of course I will not forget to mention the gorgeous lobby, very artsy. Great for photo ops and I think it goes true in every area that you go, be it the roof top, your bedroom, the Epic room - we had complementary wine...thanks Will, where they have the happy hour, the meeting room, oh and the exercise room is super clean.😀Great room designs, spacious and elegant and free shuttle! I got to meet a lot of the staff but sorry if I can’t remember everyone. Ms Zegrid was very nice and accommodating. Allen, Vivian, Jocelyn, Lisa, Linda, Shelley , Bryan, Tenzin and Will. Love the continental breakfast and the staff are the friendliest from the front desk, to the cleaning services, they are all ready with welcoming smiles. I will go back to Cova again! Maria
