Just a red door, under an awning on Columbus Ave, between a bustling restaurant and a great bakery -- it felt like we had our own secret hideaway for the weekend. Unlike downtown areas, North Beach feels alive in the evening and during the day. Lots of options for eating, hanging out. From other reviews, I was concerned about noise... More

Since 1998 I've stayed periodically at Hotel Boheme. It has a pleasant retro decor, nestled in the heart of North Beach. Some rooms have views of Coit Tower, others are situated above Stella Bakery across from Caffé Greco on Columbus Avenue. However, over the years the room prices have doubled. There are few services. Despite an always polite frontdesk, you... More

Hotel Boheme is in a very nice area, with many nice restaurants on the door step. The rooms are clean, had enough space. Good shower. The staff were informative. The only issue was our room was near the reception so in the morning, it was abit noisey from another guest and people walking up and down the stairs. Great restaurants... More

Stayed here during our first visit to San Francisco. The location was excellent. Walking distance to everywhere - we didn't have to catch any public transport during our stay. The room was really nice except that the wifi was a bit of a challenge (although we were at the far end of the corridor). The staff let us check in... More

This is a fantastically located boutique hotel with really personal service – it felt more like staying in somebody’s house, probably your slightly eccentric great aunt’s place… The location is fantastic too – right in Little Italy, with Chinatown just a few minutes away. It’s far more interesting here than the generic feeling you often get around Union Square. Transport... More

Decent hotel, but I have not stayed in others in SF, so cannot compare price-wise.The biggest short-coming is the desk staff are not particularly knowledgeable. They changed constantly, and could not advise on the most basic things, such as location of the nearest tourist office, public transport options, restaurants. Questions were either answered with mis-information or "I don't know." Travellers... More

This is a bit more bed and breakfast than hotel . . but without the breakfast. It's in a superb location for dining as well as a 15 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. The building is ancient-as with everything in this area- but well-maintained. The room and bath were clean, no issues. Hotel decor in common areas was nice. We... More

We stayed here on our first night from the UK. They can arrange shuttle buses to and from the airport which are cheaper than taxis. We were greeted by a friendly lady and the next day directed to an excellent place for breakfast by Charles, who was also really nice. The room was small and had a comfortable but small... More

Hotel Boheme is slap bang in the middle of things in North Beach. Close to loads of shops, bars and restaurants. A 10-15 minute walk from Union Square, lots of bike hire places to choose from, made looking around San Francisco easy. The hotel itself is clean, despite being a little old-fashioned. The staff on reception were very helpful, they... More

I checked the reviews, pictures, and thought I was booking a cute boutique hotel, like the villa Florence at union square. What I discovered was a really worn out hotel. Nothing like the pictures! The carpets were filthy, I refused to walk on them with my bare feet. Then we were shown to our room and told we should keep... More

We thank this guest for their feedback. Our rooms are not air conditioned as the temperature in San Francisco is very moderate and generally on the cool side so we have heaters. On a rare occasion, the temperature will be above 72 degrees which is why we have very nice electric fans. All of our rooms have windows that open.... More
