we loved this place...felt like our own little home in the middle of San Francisco complete with Pip the cat who chose to come into a room with us for a bit. Very close to everything and close to cable car stops. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and the hotel staff were more than happy to make recommendations. Would... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed in many hotels across Europe and in the US, but nothing compares to this gem. We've just got back from a 5 day trip to SF and can honestly say we are so pleased with our hotel choice. Where to start? Well firstly there's Pip - the resident feline. Always there at reception desk... More

What a gorgeous guest house Golden Gate Hotel is, complete with resident pussy cat, Pip. Built early last century, Golden Gate is charming and well priced with free wifi, breakfast and afternoon tea included. The staff are helpful and friendly. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom included a large ample bath tub. Fantastic. I love roomy long bath... More

This hotel is no Holiday Inn, it is much more like a family run hotel you might find in any European city, but having said that, the rooms are spotless, the staff are always happy to help, and the location is central to almost everything. It is only one block to the cable-cars and only a few short blocks to... More

I am so happy a co worker recommended the Golden Gate Hotel to us. She did warn me that it was a European hotel with shared baths. I was a little hesitant but agreed that we were just going to be sleeping there. The rooms are small but cozy and cleaned every day. The staff is very friendly, social and... More

My first trip to this amazing city wouldn't have been perfect without this charming hotel. The location was excellent - accessible by walk, tram and bus. I stayed there for 5 nights - Queen room with private bath on the ground floor. The room was tucked away at the back and i did not face disturbance from outside. The staff... More

Very neatly situated family-run European style hotel. The rooms are of varying size, some of which have shared baths. The elevator is a genuine antique. The breakfasts have fantastic croissants and muffins. There is afternoon tea. The staff is very friendly. Best of all, there is an orange Manx cat if you need some feline indifference.

We spent two nights in this charming hotel in the centre of SFO (suburbs are not recommended here). Unfortunately hotel was sold out and we had a room without bathroom; hence room was very small. Rest was very nice.

This was my second visit to the Golden Gate Hotel and it's better then I remembered. The charm of this hotel is worth a visit alone. I had a fourth floor, double occupancy room facing the street and it was as quiet as can be (which is a must for me at any hotel). The morning continental breakfast was wonderful... More
