A nice and historic hotel walking distance to all key sites in San Francisco. Very comfortable bed / bedding. Quiet. Friendly staff. Parking conveniently located across the street ($ 30/night). Breakfast includes really nice (European style) croissants and muffins with fresh orange juice and strong coffee (unfortunately no espressos available). Would stay here again.

This B&B lives up to the positive reviews - it was the best part of our trip to San Francisco. After spending an intense day in the city, it was a joy to come "home" to the orange kitty, usually asleep on the chair next to the door. Room was great, staff was great, the complimentary toiletries in the room... More

This is a terrific place to stay. The location is central San Francisco and you can get to everything rather quickly. Pip does an outstanding job making the guest feel very at home. The staff follows his lead and are outstanding in working with the guest. The Golden Gate Hotel feels more European in nature. They serve a limited breakfast... More

I have no negative things to say about this b and b. The staff was so nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and homey. The breakfast was simple, but a nice way to start the day with tea and a muffin or scones (I sort of forgot). We loved seeing the cat roam around and were sad we didn't... More

We found the Golden Gate Hotel on the Internet and booked 3 nights as a result of the great reviews we read. We were not disappointed and want to add our own accolades to this great little boutique hotel. I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else in the city. We were warmly received and welcomed by all the staff... More

Great place to stay. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was immaculate. Very interesting and varied guests, good conversations over morning coffee, tea and croissants or afternoon tea and cookies. And the aloof Pip. Excellent value. Visitors: If you can, visit the John Muir Woods, which are not very far away. It will be worth it.

Halim and others convey a sense of WELCOME from check in to leaving.Many guests were regular visitors which speaks well of the hotel.I liked the convenience to the Powell Street Bart and to one of the cable cars covering Nob Hill.Short distance to Chinatown also a plus.My main bus for north-south travel,muni #30, was 2 blocks away. There was no... More

My husband and I stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel for 4 nights in May. The hotel is located a short walk from Union Square and the BART at Powell Street - really accessible! It's a great location for sightseeing - Fishermans Wharf is probably only 20 minutes walk away. The room (room with a private bathroom) was very clean... More

We are B&B owners in northern CA and needed a place in SF for a short get-a-way. Golden Gate was perfect - charming, comfortable, relaxing and conveniently located. The staff is superb - warm, gracious, efficient, and very helpful. We were worried about street noise but our room was very quiet and restful. Loved the croissants at breakfast and afternoon...

We enjoyed three nights at this lovely historic inn. Note: INN. This is not a B&B in the traditional terminology. It is a small hotel (25 rooms) and breakfast(served in a way small room for potentially 50 people) is not even continental. It is ONLY breads, albeit yummy ones. Coffee/tea isn't out until 8am, and so if you are inclined... More
