This is a really nice little historic hotel in the heart of North Beach which we found to be in a perfect location of exploring the city. There are quite a few very nice restaurants in the area so it is perfect for dining as well. The hotel promotes the Beat Culture and each room is painted in a theme... More

If you like Hiltons etc, don't stay here. If you like charm, feeling part of a fascinating neighbourhood, a genuine vintage hotel, and warm and informative staff, you will love the Boheme. Surrounded by cafés and restaurants right in the middle of North Beach and all the Beat Poet history, just along from Chinatown, a short walk to Fisherman's walk.... More

Right in the heart of North beach this quirky hotel was excellent for service and convenience. Although no lift or AC this did not present problems and the room and shower were clean and worked well. A great place to start your exploration of a great city!

The front desk staff was charming and authentic! The hotel has a funky vibe and interesting history. Room was clean and comfy, however the rest of the hotel could use an update (carpet, etc.). Location is between China Town and North Beach. Easy walk to waterfront and loads of restaurants in area. Parking garage is located down the street. One... More

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.
