We wanted an exterior room but the only available was the interior small one. Still very nice and comfortable but a bit too expensive. Everything very clean. The best thing of this hotel is its charm and free freshly baked croissants and cookies.

Amazing little find in the heart of Union Square. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout our stay. My best friend and I shared a twin room with a private bath. Very comfortable and quiet. In fact both commented that we felt like we were the only guests in the B&B. Although, we met many people at breakfast each morning. Our... More

This little boutique hotel was perfect to stay in! It's close to lots of great San Francisco attractions like Union Square, Shopping and the Trams. The hotel itself is very charming with antique furnishings that all add to the charm. The mascot of the hotel is a ginger cat named Pip who will come for a ride in the lift... More

The hotel is charming. The rooms are small, but I noticed some small items that add to ones comfort: soft tissues, a dryer with a "cool shot", the heat was easy to control, we were given an additional luggage stand to accommodate both suitcases. Although small, the counter in the bathroom made good use of the available space as did... More

This small hotel is located on Bush Street in downtown San Francisco. It is an old hotel, but clean and well maintained. The service is outstanding. The cat on the web site really exists and is very friendly.

The hotel is well kept and centrally located; the breakfast croissants are hot and delicious, and they serve great coffee. The rooms, however, are very small and the hotel is on a busy street. Having been forewarned, I took ear plugs which turned out to be a lifesaver. We really liked this hotel but I stopped eating the cookies that... More

This was a charming, cozy and beautiful hotel in the heart of San Francisco. Just blocks from Chinatown, Union Square and the trolly. Loved Pip the hotel cat. He met us at the door and meowed outside our room door to be let in and petted. The staff could not have been more helpful, taking extra time to recommend dinner... More

My wife and I stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel for eight nights this past January when we were on holiday in San Francisco. The staff were very warm and welcoming, the room was comfortable and clean (shower and sink in the room, shared toilet down the hall) and the hotel was very conveniently located for all our daily excursions....

We spent one night at this hotel and were very impressed. The staff was so helpful and friendly and genuine, both at the hotel and at the parking garage across the street. Our room was delightful with a little balcony on the fire escape and the common areas were painted with faux touches and unique without being cliche. It was... More

The Golden Gate Hotel is a lovely place to drop one's bags in San Francisco. The location is ideal, roughly equidistant from the top of Nob Hill and Union Square. I had a single room with a bathroom and a king-sized bed, a wooden armoire, a television, some chairs and a table- small, but charming and perfectly comfortable. The continental... More
