The B&B is well located,nice looking and cosy. Breakfast is fine and front desk people is OK. The main issue was the size of our room (#4). Very difficult to dispose our luggage in a convenient place. Also, I don't like too much to have the washbasin in the room. The first night, we were unlucky as the garbage truck... More

The location of this inn is amazing, right on Washington Square, near Chinatown, Coit Tower, lots of restaurants and clubs. The inn itself is charming, and they have wine and cheese in the late afternoon and a lovely breakfast in the morning, which you can have in the lobby area or served in your room. The staff were friendly, though... More

This is a beautiful old hotel just off of the Italian District in San Francisco. The hotel is a lot like a bed and breakfast concept with a great breakfast and a happy hour including wine. We showed up early on our check in day and had to store our luggage as it was really early There is no storage... More

Friendly and well informed staff, great location, and comfortable rooms. All up the Washington Square Inn is like an oasis of comfort and tranquility in San Francisco. The hotel is in the North Beach neighbourhood, and is conveniently located with lots of great places within walking distance, or accessable by public transport. This is a great option for a few...

Lovely and helpful staff. Conveniently located. Charming atmosphere. Complimentary wifi. Nice complimentary hors d'oeuvres late in the afternoon (californian wine & cheese). They deliver a decent breakfast to your room upon your request - free of extra charge (missed only scrambled eggs). The petite room in which we stayed was really small, and its private bathroom was located outside the... More

Loved this hotel! Staff really friendly and helpful, immediate location (opp Washington Square) very pretty. We walked everywhere - to Fisherman's Wharf, the port for boat to Sausilito, the towncentre for shops and Little Italy and China town are on the doorstep. Rooms are very nicely done out, our bathroom (room one) was very large. Not only do you have... More

We stayed at this hotel in June 2014 and absolutely loved it. Pluses - Charming but not dated or fussy decor. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable - the windows opened wide to let in fresh air. The complimentary room service breakfast (choice of fresh juice, croissants, fresh fruit, etc delivered in a basket) was much... More

I discovered this quaint little Inn 12 years ago while exploring North Beach with my kids and decided that, next time, without kids, this would be the perfect place to stay - and it was!!! My husband and I walked everywhere from this great location which is also a block from major bus routes. The staff are outstanding, taking time... More

Short story - my sweet & I were in Cali for my son's graduation and decided to splurge a bit. Washington Square Inn is well worth a couple extra $$ - the SERVICE is what makes this place a real gem! Just so happens that a long-time pal from Bali (yes, as in the gorgeous country) that I hadn't seen... More

I was looking for a unique Inn that would provide easy access to the waterfront, mass transit, fun restaurants, bike rentals, and other SF sites; Washington Square Inn fit the bill beautifully.
