This hotel was a great little place. I am very picky on cleanliness, and this hotel met my expectations. The bed was comfortable, and at no time was the room too hot. We were on the columbus side and the noise wasnt all that bad. Great location and great food all around. Everyone there is extremely helpful and friendly. We... More

We had a great experience at Hotel Boheme. Our flight into San Francisco was an early one, so although we were only hoping to leave our bags there until check-in time, the concierge said our room could be ready by 10:30am! Very convenient for us. He also recommended a good restaurant so we could have breakfast at while we waited... More

We arrived at Hotel Boheme for night 2 of our 13 night road trip from San Francisco down to San Diego. It has a good feel about it, and we had a lovely room on the front overlooking Columbus Avenue, where all the action is. You are in the heart of North Beach, known as Little Italy. It is a... More

This hotel is awesome - we travelled around the states for 7 weeks primarily in hotels and this is my girlfriends favourite. We stayed 4 nights and loved it - characterful, quaint yet groovy - theres jack kerouac quotes, cool sexy lighting and even an old black telephone, immaculately clean (possibly new?) bathroom, small but comfy bed and really easy...

I stayed 1 night over 2 years ago! Was dreading it, I'd loved SF in 1996 but hated it 2006 with my son only being 8, and Fishermans Wharf had become so seedy post 10pm. I flew out alone via a night at Heathrow where I was hassled as a lone female. Taxi driver from airport trashed the area but... More

This is my favorite place to stay in San Francisco. We go at least once a year, and Hotel Boheme is always the perfect weekend vacation location. The decor feels so literary, the owners are always helpful, the location is smack dab in the middle of everything cool that's REAL San Francisco. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

I stayed here on a quick 3 day trip to San Francisco with my partner and we were really happy. The location is tremendous to get around. It is walking distance from Telegraph Hill, Nob Hill, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, and most of downtown really (provided you don't mind walking up hills) and there are bus stops just down the street...

This is our third time at the hotel over 9 years. It is still one of our favourite places to stay. Rooms are simple, clean and with very comfortable beds. The character is that of the Beat era, and the hotel does have a care worn feel, but it is part of its charm. The staff are always helpful and... More

I loved the Hotel Boheme. This place felt like the quintessential San Francisco hotel, and it's right smack dab in the middle of North Beach. I guess if I was coming for business I might have wanted something a bit bigger and more opulent, but as a tourist this place really corners the market on beatnik charm. The rooms are... More

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
