This is a sweet hotel in a great location- but we were travelling with heavy bags and there is no lft and the staircase is steep - if you have anything other than a hold all I would not stay here - but if you are a weekend only visit and have a little lipstick to carry around - this... More

As stated in the other reviews the location is really great. Lots of life going on in the streets around it and PLENTY of great places to eat. So many that good places that it became a challenge to decide which one we should try next. Also as stated previously is a totally charming boutique hotel. Impeccably clean and very... More

We chose Hotel Boheme as we didn't wish to stay at a large chain hotel, nor did we want to stay at the tourist trap of Fisherman's Wharf. We certainly made the right choice. The hotel is located in a great part of the city - readily accessible to all areas from this corridor on Columbus Avenue. you are surrounded... More

Let me start off by saying that Hotel Boheme is located just off of 4th and Columbus, this is the heart of the action, and really the place to be----where "Little Italy" is literally right outside your door. Chinatown is also very close by. What's nice about this location is that its not in the middle of the "tourist crowd",... More

We stayed at Hotel Boheme for 4 nights during a trip to the US several months ago. Not having visited SF before, we were a little unsure as to where to stay but fortunately we decided to follow advice from Lonely Planet. From the moment we arrived on a busy Saturday night, the hotel impressed with its convenient location within... More

When there are fantastic places to stay like Hotel Boheme, I don't really understand why people would choose a cookie-cutter chain hotel like Hilton, Holiday Inn, etc where every room is the same regardless of city or country. Here you get a unique room in a beautiful boutique hotel. The Boheme has a rich history and was a haunt of... More

Super cute hotel in busy 'Little Italy'. This is NOT a chain hotel so don't expect the same amenities but what in exchange is a little piece of 60's style and culture, with great service and advice, superior location to so much including Coit Tower, Pier 39 and Lombard Street just to name a few attractions! Surrounded by restaurants, cafe's,... More

loved the hotel - loved the rooms- loved the vibe- loved the location. Didn't love the occasional stale cigarette smoke... The complimentary sherry was just a great ending to a great day- AND a great beginning to a better evening!!

The location is perfect. It was a 20 minute walk to Union Square and about 15 minutes to the Pier. If you prefer large chain hotels (Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, etc...) then Boheme is not for you. The room is VERY small and the bathroom is REALLY VERY small. But the room and bathroom are perfectly cute, small and impeccably clean!... More

We recently stayed at Hotel Boheme for four nights as part of our honeymoon & we weren't disappointed. The hotel is in a great location right in the middle of North Beach, within walking distance to Fishermans Wharf / Chinatown / Union Square. We were in one of the rooms at the front, the room was lovely and had everything... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
