    Aida Hotel, located on the corner of Market and 7th Street, is budget-friendly no-frills hotel in a historical building that was once owned by a previous San Francisco mayor. The building itself is beautiful, and the lobby, littered with old jukeboxes, chandeliers, and seating reminds me of old San Francisco past. A multitude of signs and hotel information plaster the elevator doors and the lobby desk window. ‘No overnight guests allowed’ hints at the surrounding neighborhood.
    The staff member at the front desk is courteous and friendly, free Wi-Fi is available, and for the budget conscious travelers, there are some rooms available with shared bathrooms down the hall. There are common seating areas on each floor. The fixtures and interior décor are older, but well-kept and clean.
    It’s a little sketchy around the area, so you definitely need to be vigilant especially walking at night. The location is close to public transportation and a short walk to downtown/Union Square.

    The Aida Hotel isn't a bad hotel given its location, however it's not great either. The area isn't the nicest, though it's not bad during the day. At night, I wouldn't recommend walking too far down the Mid-Market corridor. The giant mall, the Westfield San Francisco Centre, is a short two-block walk along Market toward the Ferry Building. The Orpheum and Warfield are also very near, so if you like concerts and Broadway musicals, this is a convenient spot.

    The hotel isn't just old, it's historic. The lobby features a number of beautiful Wurlitzers and jukeboxes. Keys are used instead of electronic keycards, and there's a fee for bringing in visitors to your room. (You can ponder that for a second.)

    Some rooms don't include showers or toilets, and you have to use the shared ones down the hall. They are well-maintained, though old. Rooms are fairly nice, and they all include sinks. The vintage decor is actually quite cool.

    Staff are friendly, but don't expect the Hilton experience here. This is a centrally-located but very no-frills hotel property that places you in the heart of urban San Francisco.
