Hotel Zelos is a substantial upper-midrange hotel situated in the trendy downtown SOMA district of San Francisco, USA. Located in the elegant 1907 Pacific Building, between historic Fourth and Market Streets, this contemporary property offers a range of rooms and suites, along with a hotel bar and dining room, and a fitness centre. It will appeal to travellers seeking simple, modern accommodation and facilities in a good central location close to all amenities.
Communal areas include the hotel’s cocktail and whiskey bar, Dirty Habit, which serves an extensive breakfast menu, and a dinner menu. It has a cosy dining room and a heated alfresco patio area. Complimentary tea and coffee are served each morning in the hotel lobby, along with a selection of newspapers. Energetic types can head to the gym and fitness centre on the hotel’s 6th floor which is open 24 hours. Valet parking is available, along with bike rental for exploring the city.
SOMA (south of Market) is an eclectic, bustling neighbourhood comprising restaurants, bars, galleries, and businesses. The hotel is close to some of San Francisco’s key attractions including the Museum of Modern Art, and the historic Powell Street cable-car turnaround point which dates back to the 1800s and which is always popular with visitors. Union Square - the city’s shopping, dining, and entertainment hub - is a short walk away, along with atmospheric Chinatown and the Westfield shopping centre, home to Bloomingdales’ flagship west coast store.
The accommodation comprises a good choice of rooms and suites, varying in size from modest ‘deluxe’ rooms with views over an inner courtyard, to larger ‘executive’ and ‘luxury’ rooms which offer increased living space and views over the city. All rooms and suites come with one king-size or two double beds, an HD smart TV with internet browsing, a minibar, a desk and seating, and complimentary Wi-Fi. All have contemporary ensuite bathrooms with shower, and some come with separate bathtub. Corner King Rooms offer great views over the city’s iconic Market Street, famed for its historic cable cars. Largest in size are the extensive deluxe suites which each have one bedroom with a king-size bed, an oversized sleek bathroom with separate tub and shower, and a spacious lounge with sofa bed.
Children of all ages are warmly welcome. The deluxe rooms with two double beds are a good option for families, whilst the deluxe suite, with its additional space and a separate lounge with sofa bed, will appeal to those on a higher budget. Extra beds can be supplied upon request, subject to additional charge.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)
The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.
Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!
Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good
Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.
Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.
Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.

Once again you organised a really good holiday for us.
If there was one criticism it was that there were too many flights. I don’t know whether you could do Bangkok first, Chiang Mai, then fly down South?
Your drivers and Guides - all really good. The variety of transport on the tours in Bangkok and Chiang Mai; we all loved.
Tamarind Village - Our room was a bit of a squeeze, with the 3 of us and 3 big suitcases.
Lisu Lodge- I enjoyed our time here. Going forward I would suggest only 1 night or they need to have some more activities. I liked how we ate on the floor, the food was really good. Staff very friendly. We liked the cycling, tea plantation, trekking and white water rafting.
Riva Surya- good location.
Elephant Hills- we loved looking after the elephants, the lake was also a really good experience. The guides were informative and looked after us well. The resort locations and tents were perfect.
Santiburi - amazing; we upgraded to a beach bungalow which was fantastic. The hotel is in a stunning location, the facilities and the service was impeccable. Sam has some private Thai boxing lessons, which he loved. We had cookery lessons and used the paddle boards. A perfect end to quite a busy holiday.
